After a pregnancy, many women struggle to accept their new bodies. There’s excess skin and changes in fat distribution, and quite often, a woman’s body doesn’t simply bounce back to the way it was. This is why many women choose to have mommy makeovers to address trouble areas like the abdomen and breasts.
Watch this video to hear one woman’s story about undergoing a mommy makeover. She discusses how she lost the baby weight over three years following her pregnancy, but still couldn’t achieve her aesthetic goals.

You know that motherhood is one of a woman’s most rewarding experiences. If you are like most women, though, you have struggled to get back to your pre-pregnancy body. Oasis Plastic Surgery knows that childbirth can take a significant toll on the female body. If your exercise and diet regime have left you feeling less than confident, let our team restore your confidence with a customized treatment plan.
Have you successfully lost weight after your pregnancy, but can’t seem to target stubborn pockets of fat and sagging skin? During pregnancy, the average woman gains 25 to 40 pounds. When your stomach expands, your muscles pull apart and weaken as your skin stretches and loosens. As pregnant women know all too well, this process creates stretch marks that eventually fade to scars. If you have tried unsuccessfully through diet and exercise to target excess fat in your tummy, you are probably a good candidate for a cosmetic procedure to get you back to your target contour.
As any mother knows, the stomach is not the only area affected by pregnancy. A pregnant woman’s breasts typically increase in size and volume while she is pregnant and breastfeeding, but then shrink in size. If you have given birth, your breasts and stomach may both seem deflated and droopy. The team of professional women at Oasis Plastic Surgery works closely with you to map out a customized approach for your trouble areas. Whether you want to invest in a tummy tuck, a breast lift, or a new skin care regimen to tackle troublesome stretch marks, we tailor your mommy makeover to rejuvenate and restore your figure, so you feel confident in your post-baby body.
A mommy makeover isn’t just for new moms—some women wait several years before treating themselves. If you live in the Scottsdale area, call Oasis Plastic Surgery at (480) 619-5418 today to learn about Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan’s warm and personalized approach to cosmetic surgery.

First, make sure that you are getting breast implants because you want them, that you are physically healthy, and that you have a good support system. Next, consider size before your surgery.

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, you know that the treatment process is a physical and emotional rollercoaster. At Oasis Plastic Surgery, we believe that every woman deserves the opportunity for breast reconstruction to improve her self-confidence and restore her quality of life. If you are considering breast reconstruction, educate yourself about the procedure with these helpful answers to four commonly asked questions:
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are a non-smoker, cope well with diagnosis and treatment, and have no medical conditions that might impair healing, you are probably a good candidate for breast reconstruction. After your initial consultation, Dr. Geoghegan will work with you and your oncologist or breast surgeon to create a customized treatment plan to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
When Should I Have the Procedure?
You can begin to plan for breast reconstruction following your diagnosis of breast cancer. For some patients, reconstruction may be performed immediately when the breast is removed. Women with certain health conditions or who need radiation after surgery may opt for delayed reconstruction. The best course of action is to have honest conversations with your plastic surgeon and general surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations.
Are There Different Kinds of Breast Reconstruction?
Breast reconstruction can be achieved through several surgical techniques that each attempt to restore the size, shape, and appearance of the breast. Dr. Geoghegan will guide you every step of the way as you and your team decide which surgical procedures are best for your goals and your body. These techniques can include tissues from your own body or those that utilize implants. On our website there is a 3D animation of breast reconstruction which has been provided for better patent education, please take time to review this in-depth education tool to prepare you to meet Dr Geoghegan.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Each woman’s body is different, and recovery from breast reconstruction is highly variable according to the technique and procedure. Most women may return to work within one to four weeks. More than likely you will also be asked to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for 1-4 weeks as well.
If you live in the Scottsdale area, and you have been considering breast reconstruction, call Oasis Plastic Surgery at (480) 619-5418 today. Our team will help you select the method that is best suited your body and specific goals.
