"Dr. Martin and his staff go above and beyond for their patients. My mother had a recent surgery and he has made countless hospital visits, most after 5pm and on the weekend , in an effort to speed up her recovery. He answers all questions with patience and detail. His nurses are caring and knowledgeable. I honestly can’t say enough good about this practice."- L.D. / Facebook / Jan 05, 2020
"I am 64 years old and decided to get a lower face lift (neck and jowls) I went to one surgeon for consultation . He turned out to be very insulting and extremely rude. Well, I lost heart. It took me several months, researching and with the help of my daughter (she is an esthetician). I finally decided to try one more surgeon in the same area where I live . Dr Justin Martin of Martin Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Dothan , AL. I was so apprehensive about another consultation, however, I really wanted to have the surgery. Well, I walked in and his staff, Monica, Sabrina and Kate, were so welcoming, I felt so comfortable. Had my consultation and Dr Martin was just as awesome and professional as his staff. By the time I left that consultation, I was ready for surgery. We had decided along with the Neck and jowls lift I would also get fat injected into my cheeks. Dr Martin informed me of what to expect and of the healing process. It is now four weeks out from the day of surgery. My stitches are out, I have had no problems and very thankful for Dr Martin's professional technical skills. And so very thankful to his beautiful staff. As a result of my surgery, I am looking hot! All kidding aside, I am very happy with the results. I am seeing a much fresher, healthier, happier me. I have a ways to go in the healing process, but I am thrilled."- I.B. / RealSelf / Nov 22, 2019

"Excellent, trustworthy, kind doctor. I had my breast implants (saline from 2000) removed April, 2019. Dr Martin listened to my concerns and was supportive of my decision to explant. He advised me he would attempt to remove the entire capsules and ultimately was able to do so. I healed well and look better than I could have hoped for back to my natural self. The concerning symptoms associated with "breast implant illness" have resolved. I thank God that he led me to this kind, nonjudgemental young doctor and staff that treated me so professionally. Thank you Dr. Martin and staff for your help!"- R.K. / Google / Sep 22, 2019
"I’m so glad I decided to make that first consultation with Dr Martin. It turned out to be the best cosmetic decision I’ve made yet. I have had procedures done by 2 other PS in Dothan so I have had experience with them all and Dr Martin is hands down the best choice of them all. From his friendly bedside manner to his amazing work he’s an amazing PS. He is confident in his work and what he can accomplish when other PS say it can’t be done. He was very patient with me with all ...of my questions and the 3 consultation appts I made before my surgery 😬I had more questions and I wanted to be 100% sure we were on the same page with my expectations and because of my past experiences with other PS. He listened to every concern I had and at 1 week PO those concerns are history. So far no issues in recovery and Dr Martin and his nurses have taken excellent care of me. His office is just a friendly environment and you can see that Dr Martin appreciates these 3 precious ladies he has by his side everyday. That says a lot about a person in my book. Anyway search no further cuz believe me I’ve done it for you. 😉Dr Martin is the right choice!! I plan to use him for other procedures I need from here on out 😍♥️💜♥️"- S.G. / Facebook / Aug 28, 2019
Ideal candidates for this surgery are women who have gone through childbearing, and have tried to achieve a tighter figure through a healthy diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgical intervention is needed to regain their pre-pregnancy body. If you are past childbearing and are frustrated with its effects on your body, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, this procedure could be ideal for you. The overall goal of Dr. Martin is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy shape so you can get back to living life without feeling self-conscious.
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery, tailored for women by plastic surgeon Dr. Martin based on the areas of concern to be addressed. A variety of procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are a breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital may be needed.
What to Expect
For most women, the healing process lasts about six weeks, and the majority of women are able to resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Strenuous exercise should be held off for about six weeks. Many changes happen in the first several months after surgery, such as decreased swelling and scar softening/fading, it can take 6 -12 months for the final results to be apparent. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Martin Plastic Surgery can be life changing for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary greatly depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, Dr. Martin will need to develop your treatment plan and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your body and confidence after having children, so it is best to concentrate on getting the results you want rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Martin Plastic Surgery accepts several forms of payment and we also offer financing options.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Martin, he will talk with you in order to understand your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your mommy makeover. Most women include a breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) along with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
What about other treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce the results you want. In your consultation, Dr. Martin will discuss other surgical treatments that may benefit you. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will tell you if procedures like labiaplasty, thigh lift, and scar revision may be helpful.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Martin will make every effort possible to create incisions that are as well-hidden as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be concealed with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Martin or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your incisions heal properly.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so that your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if you get pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
