Pregnancy is a wonderful experience, yet it may leave you with excess skin, fat deposits that no longer respond to diet and exercise or lose abdominal muscle separation. Also, weight loss can cause the skin of the breasts and tummy to sag and stretch and certain areas may be resistant to losing that last amount of fat. A mommy makeover is a customized combination of procedures that can help you reach your goals of obtaining a fit figure after pregnancy.
If you feel that pregnancy, weight loss or other factors have altered your body so that it no longer reflects the youth, energy, and independence you feel, a mommy makeover may be able to help.
The reality is that pregnancy can be hard on your body and not everyone fully recovers. Some women’s bodies bounce back right away, but others may not due to age, weight gain, and genetics.
Sometimes you may recover from a first pregnancy, but not a second or third. This is not a question of work, it’s a question of age and genetics, and it may not matter how hard you work out or how carefully you diet: skin, muscle, and fat will do as your genes tell them to.
A mommy makeover or post-pregnancy body contouring is a compliment to your hard work of trying to get your pre-pregnancy body back. When you have done all you can and you are still unhappy with the results, a mommy makeover can provide the extra help you need to feel youthful, confident, and attractive again.
You may be a good candidate for post-pregnancy body contouring:
The American Society of Plastic Surgery recommends that patients wait approximately six months before having an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. This time allows the abdominal muscles to heal appropriately after they have been expanded during pregnancy. While each patient is different, Dr. Gonyon recommends that patients wait until they are done breastfeeding before having any breast surgery.
Take the first step. Get your questions answered and find out which treatment option is best for your personal situation by meeting with Dr. Gonyon at Gonyon Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery for an in-person consultation.

Since mommy makeovers are customized to address specific concerns and reach individualized goals, recovery times can vary greatly. Typically, what we see work best for our patients is to plan on two weeks off from work and having help at home. This time immediately after surgery is very important to set your recovery on track for the best results.
While each patient’s healing is different, scars continue to fade over the 12 months following surgery. We offer medical-grade silicone scar therapy treatments that can speed up the healing process of your surgery scars.
Mommy Makeovers vary widely in cost based on the recommendation and desired outcomes. At your consultation, our Patient Care Coordinator will provide you with a quote for your entire surgical cost and review financing options.
For patients who would like to finance their plastic surgery, we offer several different options. Care Credit offers 6 and 12-month no-interest financing plans and up to 34 months with fixed interest. We also offer Green Sky Financing, which offers up to 18 months with no interest or 60 months with fixed interest.
A mommy makeover combines a number of surgical procedures to achieve an overall rejuvenation of your appearance. To get the best results and safest procedure, you should work with a board-certified plastic surgeon whose training and aesthetic judgment help him perform the procedure as safely and effectively as possible.
Dr. Denis Gonyon is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has provided many mommy makeovers to women in Northern Colorado, including Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and beyond.
In addition, Dr. Gonyon performs surgery at his private, AAAASF-certified surgical facility. This ensures that your procedure will be performed in a private and safe setting that is both comfortable and luxurious. And for moms whose children make it hard to relax, our onsite recovery center allows you to take care of yourself and spend time away and focus on getting better.
