Mommy Makeover Reviews
"There’s not enough nice things for me to say about Dr. Isakson! He has amazing bedside manner, he’s funny, realistic and he met and continues to meet every expectation I have! I’ve been beyond comfortable during this whole process. The before and after pictures speak volumes, but to say he is a perfectionist is the best compliment I can think of. Recovery was such a breeze and I couldn’t love my results more!! He gave me back the body confidence I lacked from having my soul sucking..I mean loving children. ;) No concern was too small for him to address and I always felt like the most important person in the room when we spoke. He is hands down the best surgeon I could have picked and I’m so thankful to him and nurse Katy!! They make a fantastic team!"- A.R. / Google / Jan 03, 2024

"After 2 Pregnancies with C Sections, breastfeeding, numerous laparoscopic surgeries leaving scars around my stomach, and lastly significant weight loss I went with Dr. Decherd for a Tummy Tuck and Breast lift with implants. I am so happy with my results from my Mommy Makeover and it has given me so much confidence and comfort in and out of clothes!"- H.P. / Google / Nov 16, 2023
"I had a breast lift and augmentation with a tummy tuck in November. Dr Isakson and his nurse Kathy are both very friendly and welcoming, as is the entire staff. They take the time to answer any questions that you have. Leading up to surgery they explain everything very thoroughly and also make sure that you have the tools you needs for post op care and pain management. The follow-up care is excellent that includes visits until you are 6 months post op. I would, and have, happily recommend them to anyone."- S.B. / Google / Feb 12, 2024
"Dr. Isakson has changed my life completely for the better. I have gone up and down in weight by more than 50 lbs, two babies, 1 c-section and numerous prior abdominal surgeries. To say my stomach had seen better days is an understatement. For only being 30, I was ashamed of my body. I underwent an extended tummy tuck, muscle repair, Lipo to the flanks, mons and submental area. At 6 weeks out, I have no pain anymore, back to normal anct and am healing nicely. My scar is already fading and I can’t wait to see how it progresses. Dr. Isakson is blunt but honest and is truly an artist with body sculpting. The amount of compliments I have already received is insane and I expect to look even better as the swelling subsides."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Nov 16, 2023
Unlike some of the other procedures that describe one particular surgery, a mommy makeover refers to a collection of procedures that are designed to offset some of the changes a woman experiences through pregnancy. Typically, pregnancy stretches out the fascia of the internal wall in the tummy and it can cause stretch marks, breast sag or a loss of breast volume. Some women will have breasts that remain enlarged. Therefore, a mommy makeover usually includes some of the following: breast augmentation (breast implants), breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. We believe that each procedure adds benefit, but together they are synergistic – the whole ends up greater than the sum of the parts.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
How Many Women Do This?
A lot! We have treated countless women with similar cosmetic problems all associated with pregnancy and nursing. The results are stunning and his patients love their new look and feel after surgery.
Will It Rid Stretch Marks?
There is unfortunately no known cure for stretch marks (or cellulite). However, stretch marks that exist due to a pregnant belly usually reside on the bottom of the abdomen. A tummy tuck removes this area of skin, including the stretch marks. Women who have stretch marks higher up will still have them, but they will be moved lower and stretched tight, usually making them less visible.
What About My Breasts?
Many women choose to get breast augmentation as part of their mommy makeover procedure. Dr. Decherd and Dr. Isakson are experienced cosmetic breast surgeons and strive to produce a result that looks natural and proportionate with the rest of the body. Women, mothers especially, should not feel anxious or worried about receiving implants after pregnancy. Many women both desire and deserve them especially after going through pregnancy.
Will Sagging Reoccur?
We firmly believe the biggest variables that cause sagging breasts are a massive weight loss, pregnancy, monthly menstrual cycles (which have some expansion/contraction element) and then lastly, gravity and time. So if a woman is not going to have anymore pregnancies, and is not going to lose a lot of weight, a breast lift (mastopexy) will reposition the breasts, which then will age with the woman reasonably well.
What About Pregnancy?
For optimal, lasting results, it is a general recommendation by cosmetic surgeons that women wait to have a mommy makeover until they are done having children. Additional pregnancies, weight gain and skin stretching could most likely compromise the results of the surgery.
