Turn Back the Clock with a Mommy Makeover

While it’s no secret that childbirth can change your life for the better, it’s also fairly common to notice that the very same process has actually altered some parts of your body for the worse. In particular, the breasts, abdomen, and lower body have a tendency to be adversely affected by the childbearing process, and don’t always recover in quite the ways we might expect. Thankfully, Dr. Markelov offers the mommy makeover to patients in Wausau, Stevens Point, and the surrounding areas, enabling you to turn back the clock and once again enjoy a toned, youthful body.

Is the Mommy Makeover Right for Me?

As the name implies, the mommy makeover is designed for those who have recently undergone the childbearing process, including nursing and childbirth, and who wish to enjoy a tighter, more toned appearance. Important to note, however, is that the mommy makeover is not one single procedure, but rather refers to a combination of procedures that are combined to holistically address the changes that can occur after childbirth.

Every patient is different, so your surgical plan will be unique to your body and your goals, but you’ll draw from the following procedures in order to accomplish those results:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Butt lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Cellulite reduction

How the Mommy Makeover Helps

Every patient’s body is different, and no two individuals are going to respond to the childbearing process in exactly the same way. For this reason, the mommy makeover is a highly customizable set of procedures, which can be tailored to your highly specific needs. During your preoperative consultations, you’ll work closely with Dr. Markelov to establish your goals, and lay out a surgical plan that can properly bring you in line with them.

In most cases, the mommy makeover is designed to address some combination of the following issues:

  • Drooping breasts
  • Lost volume or sagging in breasts
  • Stretched or loose abdominal muscles
  • Stretch marks or sagging skin
  • Frustrating pockets of extra fat
  • Excess skin or cellulite
  • Skin laxity or loss of firmness

What to Expect on the Day of Your Procedure

Before the day of your surgery, you’ll have at least two in-person consultations with Dr. Markelov, where you’ll go over any questions you might have, and will talk through every detail as they pertain to your procedure. The length of time your surgery takes will depend on the exact procedures included in your mommy makeover, which will likely involve some of the following procedures.

Body Contouring

Body contouring procedures like liposuction, a tummy tuck, or a butt lift can help to restore areas that have started to sag or droop, enabling your body to once again have that perky, youthful appearance.

Breast Surgery

Breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a breast lift can be used to ensure that your bust is restored to its former status, giving you a boost in body confidence and enabling you to truly love the way you look.

Non-Surgical Options

We can combine traditional surgical procedures with a variety of minimally-invasive techniques to refresh and rejuvenate your appearance in a number of ways that will perfectly complement your mommy makeover.

What to Expect After Your Mommy Makeover


The scarring that remains after your procedure will depend on the specifics of your mommy makeover — different procedures require different incisions, and the size of the treatment area also tends to impact incision placement, as well. Dr. Markelov will help you understand exactly what to expect, in terms of scarring, and he always takes every measure to ensure that visible scarring is minimal.

Your Results

You’ll be able to notice the results of your mommy makeover as soon as you leave our recovery room, but the final results will begin to truly take shape as the swelling and bruising subsides. This generally takes anywhere from several weeks to a few months, depending once again upon the specifics of your mommy makeover procedure. We’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.


Aftercare is incredibly important, so we’ll set up follow-up appointments to ensure that you’re healing properly, and address any issues or questions that you might have as you recover from your mommy makeover. Drain removal, suture removal, and other appointments will be set up in advance, and we’ll keep an eye on you to ensure that you’re healing properly, so you can enjoy your results for years to come.
