"Mommy Makeover" is a term for women who wish to rejuvenate their bodies after childbirth. Rather than one procedure, a Mommy Makeover at Portland's Waldorf Center refers to a combination of procedures tailored to the needs and desires of the patient. Often, these procedures can be combined to lessen recovery time. It is best done when no further pregnancies are planned.
We have a special understanding of the needs of women, and our board-certified surgeons have performed numerous Mommy Makeovers. Our surgeons believe in a natural look, combining the eye of an artist with the technical skill of an experienced surgeon.
Mommy Makeover patients can expect to be thoroughly educated when it comes to the various elements involved in the procedure. This includes the processes of preparing for each procedure and the recovery periods after each. Patients meet with Dr. Waldorf for an examination and discussion of surgery specifics, as well as to have any questions answered to their satisfaction so they are fully comfortable with their decision.
Below are the most common Mommy Makeover procedures:
Also known as an abdominoplasty, this is one of the most popular Mommy Makeover cosmetic surgeries. Not only is excess skin and fat removed from the abdomen, but stretched muscles can be tightened as well. Liposuction may be used during the procedure for additional contouring.

This is a procedure that removes localized pockets of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. A suction device is used to remove the fat tissue through a small incision. Find out more about liposuction.
During a Mommy Makeover, many women decide to increase the size of their breasts for better body proportion and to replace volume that is lost after pregnancy and nursing. This procedure can be done concurrently with a breast lift to raise sagging breasts. Read more about breast augmentation.

For some women, large breasts cause back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as difficulty in finding clothes that fit properly. Read more about breast reduction, which can correct this problem.
Childbirth can sometimes stretch the labia, causing some women to wish to reduce them for both comfort and appearance. Find out more about labiaplasty. Birth and the natural aging process can also cause changes that can impact feminine wellness. Women facing these problems have a nonsurgical solution in ThermiVa®.
Each individual procedure has its own recovery period. In some cases, Dr. Waldorf might be able to combine surgeries in order to lessen your time in recovery.
I was displeased with my breast size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging and Dr. Waldorf concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!Learn More
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. Waldorf have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. The surgery & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.Learn More
