Mommy Makeover Reviews
"A Very Wonderful Amazing Doctor - Dr. K. Sumpter Did a fabulous job in performing my cosmetic plastic surgery. This doctor knows what she is doing and if you are ever considering to use her for any type of procedure you are in good hands. Dr. Sumpter had performed both breast augmentation and abdomplasty surgery at the same time and I have to say that I was definitely in good hands. My recovery was fastas well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kristi Sumpter to anyone her services are great she is very caring, the wait is not long and she definitely schedule as many follow up visits as needed in i timely manner."- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 03, 2012
"I sent an email a few weeks ago about how excited I was. I have gone from a size 12 to a size 4 and have great boobs! I recommend Dr. Sumpter to everyone! She has the best bed side manner and made me feel very comfortable. My mom wanted the same procedures and decided to go to another doctor to have the same procedures, because he had been in business longer. She spent $6,000 more than me and is very dissatisfied. These procedures have change my life! I am more confident, I have stuck to a strict diet for 5 months now, it is a complete lifestyle change. I would gladly share my story with others to show how amazing Dr. Sumpter is. (My husband thinks she's great too!) I have had 2 children in the last 15 months and have a better body and much skinnier than I have every been. I can wear a bikini without short for the first time in my life, and no more padded bras."- AL / Other / Apr 08, 2004

A mommy makeover incorporates multiple procedures, so the surgical technique used is different for each surgical case. The technique also varies depending on the medical condition and aesthetics of the patient’s body. During your consultation, Dr. Sumpter will create a personalized plan for your aesthetic goals and go into detail about the advanced surgical techniques that will be applied. For many, a combination of techniques will create beautifully shaped breasts, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, reshape a more natural and appealing body contour, and eliminate stubborn areas of fat.
If a woman feels as if her breast size or shape is insufficient, she can turn to breast augmentation surgery. Why do women choose implants? Some of the most popular reasons are for breasts that have lost volume due to aging, weight loss, or breastfeeding, to improve asymmetrical breasts or underdeveloped breasts or following breast cancer surgery.
Like any part of the body, breasts can change appearance over time, most noticeably, once perky breasts can sag to a woman’s dissatisfaction. Not only are breasts lifted, but the surgery also enhances the shape of the breasts to give them an overall better appearance. Breast lift surgery can also be performed in combination with breast augmentation to rejuvenate the breasts by adding breast volume. Often, the best answer is a combination of the two.
As the most common cosmetic surgery on the market, liposuction has transformed countless lives and bodies with its dramatic results. Any patient who wants to remove unwanted fat should consider the surgery, which uses specialized tools and suctioning to eliminate the fat from the body. Liposuction is commonly used on the abdomen, hips, back, upper arms, face and neck, breasts, knees, thighs and calves.
A flat, toned stomach is a sign of a person being in good shape and healthy, but sometimes it can’t be achieved with just exercise and diet. A tummy tuck is good for those who aren’t happy with the appearance of their abdomen. The concentration of a tummy tuck is the sagging skin and the lower abdomen. It partners beautifully with liposuction performed on the upper abdomen and/or flanks ("love handles") for a complete abdominal improvement.
A mommy makeover is considered an invasive surgery and may require an overnight stay in the hospital. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can range in duration depending on how many procedures are combined. Some patients find the recovery to be challenging, but quickly gain hope as they begin to recognize the dramatic difference the surgery has made in their appearance. Full recovery can take between 6-9 months although most patients go back to their normal routine in about 3-4 weeks. Exercise is discouraged for at least 6-8 weeks post-surgery.
It is important to note that scarring is usually a part of this procedure. For this reason, it is important for patients to find a skilled and experienced board-certified cosmetic surgeon to perform this surgery. A seasoned surgeon will ensure that scarring is kept at a minimum and that the results are not only gorgeous, but also long lasting.
