A ‘Post-Partum Tweak’ also known as a ‘Mommy Makeover’ at my Newmarket clinic can be a wonderful, life changing way to restore your best body after you’ve had children. Mommy Makeovers often involve a body contouring procedure; full or mini-tummy tuck and/or liposuction combined with a breast procedure; breast augmentation, lift, liposuction or reduction. Women can be beautiful at all stages of their life. Just because their bodies have changed, doesn’t mean they can’t look and feel great.
Book a Consultation with Dr. vanVliet today
For my entire life I wanted to have larger breasts... to simply fill out my dresses and shirts... . And after I had children my breasts became even smaller. After all the years I finally decided I would at least speak to someone and booked a consultation with Dr Van Vliet. She made me feel totally at ease and completely understood my desire to look natural...not huge. She didn’t make me feel I was being vain or ridiculous for thinking about getting my breasts done. When I booked the procedure she and her amazing staff walked me through everything to expect and I felt extremely supported, cared for and respected. I knew exactly what to expect. They were true to their word and the entire procedure including pre and post was seamless. I feel great and finally like my body!
1Being a woman in my late 40’s I wanted to look more refreshed and less tired without looking like I was “done”. I went to the VanVliet clinic for a consultation to discuss the best approach. First of all, the consultation was with Dr. VanVliet herself! She made me feel completely comfortable and provided her own professional guidance. I felt I was in great hands and felt she recommended what I could do based on my needs... not like she was selling me what I didn’t really need. The procedure was easy and took years off my face and I feel great!
JenniferI went to Dr Van Vliet for a breast augmentation. I FINALLY fill out a bathing suit top. Thank you for great service and understanding my personal needs.
1I am so grateful my family doctor highly recommended Dr. vanVliet to me for my breast reduction. She did an amazing job and I can’t believe how my neck, back and shoulder pain has decreased to a very minimal degree. The staff at the Van Vliet clinic are also amazing - they make you feel so comfortable and relaxed. I could call at anytime and my questions were answered. The clinic has beautiful decor and is very inviting. I highly recommend Dr. vanVliet - she is awesome! I love my new breasts:) Thank you Dr. vanVliet and your great staff!
1I was a little nervous at first, as anyone would be…yet everyone at the clinic was so sweet and supportive, they took away all those little fears that I had. They were always open to questions and answered all my calls. If anyone as young as I am (I am 18) is really looking to get this done, I’d recommend Dr vanVliet in a heart beat. Also Franca is a wonderful woman who helped me feel comfortable the whole time and that helped a lot!
KMI was feeling discouraged with the look of my skin as I have aged. I have always had acne - I thought by the time I reached my 40’s that it would stop - but no such luck! The BBL forever clear sessions treated my acne and for the first time I can go out in public without wearing cover-up! The staff really took the time to explain everything and were very professional.
JSI was extremely anxious about having this laser procedure done. I can honestly say that from the consultation to procedure day, the support from all the staff through their shared experience/knowledge put me at ease. My fear of the Halo procedure was totally unfounded - I had minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. The post procedure description was right on the mark for accuracy! I highly recommend this procedure..each day my skin looks better: beautiful clarity, smaller pores, less pigmentation and a rosy, dewy glow…
MLI had my love-handles treated with CoolSculpt. I was amazed at how effortless and painless the procedure was. I experienced no discomfort whatsoever and managed to catch up on some beauty sleep while it all happened. I was able to see results within weeks and I am so very happy with my final results that I am planning on having the procedure again on another ‘problem’ area!
DMDr. vanVliet is amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor before, during or after my tummy tuck surgery. Her whole staff was excellent as well. Even my husband loved it at the Van Vliet clinic - they let him be present and involved in my care. I would have my tummy tuck again in a heartbeat! Out of 10 I would give the Van Vliet Clinic a 15!
VGI would recommend Dr vanVliet to anyone! Her style is comforting but direct. She is very thorough and honest and she prepared me well for my surgery and recovery. I was never worried and I had an amazing experience overall - thanks to her.
ConcettaDr vanVliet is top notch. She knows her work. She puts people at ease - you can see how much she cares and loves her job. She sees her patients as whole people and she never talks down to them. She’s very caring and compassionate. She’s so warm - you feel the love!
RosemaryWhen I first met Dr vanVliet I knew I was good -and that I didn't have to look any further. I felt very comfortable with her. She has great aura and energy about her. I found her to be very compassionate and re-assuring.
KGI would recommend Dr vanVliet and her clinic in a heartbeat! I would not hesitate. Dr vanVliet is a very compassionate doctor with a great bedside manner. She was always supportive and I felt listened to and cared for by her- and her wonderful team. I would say that both my breast reduction and tummy tuck procedures were wonderful experiences.
- Patient A
Procedure: Post -This healthy mother of 2 underwent a joint breast
Partum Tweak (Breast Reduction & Liposuction & Tummy Tuck)
reduction / liposuction procedure and tummy
tuck. She is a healthy mother of 2 children but
wanted to get more comfortable in her own skin
and to get her pre-children body back. It's s early
days yet - these photos are taken at post op
month one - but the contour of her breasts and
abdomen have improved significantly and she is
very comfortable and happy. Her scars will
continue to remodel over the coming year to
become softer and lighter.
- Patient B
Procedure: Post-PartumThis healthy and fit 47-year old mother of 5
Tweak (Breast Augmentation/Lift/Tummy Tuck)
wanted surgical correction of her breast involution
and descent, as well as improvement of her
abdominal contour and scars (ER c-section scar).
She underwent a breast augmentation and lift,
plus a full abdominoplasty procedure. Here she is
only 2 months post-operatively.
- Patient C
Procedure: Post -This mother of 3 developed skin laxity and a wide
Partum Tweak (Mommy Makeover)
rectus diastasis after her last twin pregnancy
which required a C-section delivery. In spite of her
best efforts the skin laxity and diastasis gave her a
loose, full look that could not be exercised away.
Her post-operative photos were taken at 4
months. Although her scars are still healing, we
can see the considerable improvement in her
abdominal contour. She is back to her fit and lean
- Patient D
Procedure: Post -This patient underwent staged procedures:
Partum Tweak (Breast Lift/Nipple Reduction/Tummy Tuck)
Breast lift and nipple reduction in 2013. She was
so delighted she went on to tummy tuck with a
diastasis (muscle repair) in 2015. Here we see her
early results 3 months out. Her scars will
continue to fade and soften.
- Patient E
Procedure: Post -The healthy and fit mother of 3 underwent staged
Partum Tweak (Mommy Makeover)
procedures. She disliked her puckered C-section
scar and we were able to rid her of this plus
improve her shape with a tummy tuck. A couple of
years later I corrected her post partum breast
deflation with a breast lift. Because she was happy with her breast
size I did not remove any breast tissue - just redistributed her existing breast tissue
volume into a tightened skin brassiere.
- Patient F
Procedure: Post -This 41-year old woman wanted correction of her
Partum Tweak (Mommy Makeover)
breast descent and her abdominal contour after
the birth of her 2 children. She had small B cup
breasts and was happy with her size - just not the
deflation and descent. I did a skin-only breast lift
to maintain her breast volume in her tightened
and lifted skin brassiere. She had a wide rectus
diastasis leading to a protruding belly in spite of
the fact that she was not a heavy woman. I was
able to improve her abdominal contour with a
diastasis repair at the time of her tummy tuck.
The majority of women who come to my practice for a Mommy Makeover are women who are getting their lives back after their last baby has been born. They are working hard at taking good care of themselves, but they may have a few residual aesthetic concerns or postpartum figure ‘leftovers’ that have not responded to their best efforts on a fitness and healthy nutrition routine.
My role is to walk women through the process of deciding which corrective aesthetic procedures would serve them best. My goal is to help the patient decide which combination of procedures can most safely and effectively help them reach their unique and highly personal aesthetic goals.
Often, surgical tweaks involve some surgical combination of breast and torso surgery. I usually advocate waiting at least one to two years after delivery of your last child and after finishing breast feeding so that you have an opportunity to equilibrate with respect to your weight and your lifestyle.
Postpartum surgical tweaks are intended for women who are finished having children, in excellent health and in the position to enjoy the results of their surgery for many decades to come. As long as you remain relatively weight stable and healthy as you age, the majority of these surgical interventions are long-standing with little requirement for future surgery. I believe that we can be beautiful at all stages of the life cycle – and that we can own the responsibility to maintain it.
You don’t t need a make over to feel good about your body. I am happy to guide you and tweak what you feel needs improving – natural, incremental improvements – essentially helping you step into and enjoy the beautiful skin that you are already in.
