Pregnancy and childbirth can be hard on a woman’s body. While these life-changing experiences can bring great joy to a new mom, the physical changes that come with them can impact a woman’s self-esteem. Excess skin in the tummy and hips, fat deposits along the thighs, and sagging breasts can be the result even despite a good diet and exercise regime. Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, offers plastic surgery procedures designed to restore areas that are most affected by pregnancy. His Mommy Makeover procedure is tailored specifically to the aesthetic goals of the patient and usually includes a combination of the upper and lower body.

"I love this clinic! I have been seen by doctor Grace Kim, and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness and for making me feel welcome at her office. She always makes sure she answers all my questions and concerns and takes the time to explain to me what is going on with my health. I feel I am not just another patient, I feel Ms. Kim cares for me. Her staff is amazing, from her nurses to the ladies at the front desk. This clinic is very clean and the interior design of the lobby/waiting area is fantastic. Thank you, Ms. Kim, I truly appreciate you!"- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2019
"Dr. Candace Spann is great. She’s always personable and cheerful and she has jokes! She keeps it real and that’s what I love about her. Very down to earth"- L.G. / Google / Aug 31, 2021
"I have been seeing Dr. Candace Spann for my hair and skin for a year. In this time she has sent me for blood work to get a better understanding of my hair loss and even diagnosed an issue my regular doctor missed. Thank you for your thoroughness and bedside manner. She put me in the magic hands of her in-office esthetician Lizelle and she has been my skin whisperer for my microneedling experience. Her experience with skin tones like mine immediately put me at ease because she understands one setting and approach does not fit all. I am so thankful for the entire staff and look forward to continued success with my skin and hair journey."- D. / Google / Jul 21, 2021
The Mommy Makeover procedure at Couture is uniquely tailored to each patient depending on what body part they want to improve. In most cases, the breasts and tummy are addressed together (though not always). The conditions addressed during surgery, and the surgical technique used will vary.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Loss of volume and/or breast tissue, sagging and/or drooping, excess skin (ptosis), breasts that have become too large.
- Surgeries to consider: Breast augmentation with implants, breast lift, breast augmentation with a lift, breast reduction surgery.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Excess fat and/or persistent bulge in the abdomen, sagging and loose skin, stretch marks and other unsightly skin irregularities.
- Surgeries to consider: Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction of the abdomen.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Sagging skin and excess fat in the buttocks, hips and thighs.
- Surgeries to consider: Lower body lift including liposuction and skin tightening of the buttocks, hips and thighs.
All Mommy Makeovers are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. Depending on how many techniques are combined, the surgery could last multiple hours. It is common for patients to have a short hospital stay with this surgery. Most women will require a full month to recover, but many will be able to return to work within 2 weeks. The results will reveal themselves in multiple stages as the breast implants settle into their natural placement and the incisions begin to heal. It generally takes a full year for all of the changes to make their final appearance.
Mommy Makeover procedures will vary in cost depending how many surgeries were combined and how many surgery sessions are needed. At a minimum, if a Breast Lift with Augmentation is performed along with a Tummy Tuck, the cost could range from $10,500-$18,900.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Is it Safe?
There are always risks to consider when contemplating surgery. When procedures are combined, those risks can increase. Therefore, it is important to find an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in performing multiple procedures in one setting. Ultimately, a combination procedure can have numerous benefits, including only having to undergo surgery once — which means only one recovery and one fee.
What if I get Pregnant?
In a perfect world, women would wait to have a Mommy Makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur.
What About Stretch Marks?
If stretch marks exist on an area of the body (i.e. breast, tummy, etc.) that is going to be lifted and tightened, they may be removed when the excess skin is trimmed away. For any stretch marks left behind, as well as any other skin irregularities that may exist, there are skin-rejuvenating techniques that can help fade and remove these imperfections.
Will I Have Scars?
Scarring will occur with almost any cosmetic procedure. However, every effort is made to place and close the incisions carefully so that scarring is minimized. Scarring eventually fades into faint lines and can be concealed by undergarments and bathing suits. Most patients feel that the physical results following a Mommy Makeover far outweigh the scarring left behind.
