How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different. Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have about a Mommy Makeover in Vernon Hills. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

We charge $100 for surgical consultations that last about 40 minutes. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your surgery for a day and time that works for your schedule.

The Mommy Makeover Procedure

A Mommy Makeover procedure generally takes somewhere between two to four hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The amount of time the procedure takes, and subsequently how long it takes to recover, will depend on the specific procedures performed. One of our board-certified plastic surgeons will then perform the procedure based on the unique needs of the patient.

Mommy makeover procedures often include a combination of multiple different operations. These can include breast and body contouring procedures.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Before any cosmetic surgery, including a Mommy Makeover in Vernon Hills, your surgeon will review your recovery schedule in detail so you feel prepared for what to expect afterwards. Mommy Makeovers are an outpatient procedure that we perform in our surgical facility, which means you’ll be able to go home that same day. In general, you’ll still be experiencing the effects of the anesthesia when you arrive home. Therefore, it’s important to have someone who can drive you home and take care of you for the first 24 hours following your procedure. Your surgeon will send you home with both instructions for your recovery and supplies that will help your mommy makeover heal correctly.

It’s important that you rest for the first few days of your recovery after a Mommy Makeover. You should avoid lifting heavy objects or undergoing strenuous activity for the first week of your recovery. In general, full recovery will take multiple weeks, making it important to follow your recovery instructions given by your provider.

Happy patients


Dr. Lu did a fantastic job with my mommy makeover. I’m so happy with the results that I can’t stop checking myself out in every mirror I see! He and his entire staff are very friendly and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I’m so glad I made the decision to see him!

Mommy Makeover

The entire staff was helpful and super nice. Dr. Lu’s assistant Anna was super helpful. She knows her stuff. She made me feel comfortable and got me super excited for the next step. She answered all of my questions.

This is the BEST Med Spa! Dr. Lu, Dr. Ritacca and Dawn, their esthetician are ahhmazing! They have exceeded any expectation i ever had. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and each of them are highly skilled at what they do. I always leave their looking better than when I came in and highly recommend them.
-Aria 100

Dr. Lu and his staff were professional, efficient and very friendly throughout the entire process. They addressed any concern I had and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed with any appointment and they made me feel like I was a priority.

On the day of the surgery, any nerves I had were reassured by the professionalism and experience Dr. Lu and his staff demonstrated. It was great getting a text from Dr. Lu the next day to see how I was doing, and knowing I could text him any time with concerns or questions.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lu for any cosmetic surgery, he’s the best in the area. I had gone to a plastic surgeon a couple years ago in Schaumburg and I had a totally different experience. The staff there seemed ‘bothered’ with questions I asked and the doctor made some troubling comments when I had expressed some concerns about my results. So when I met Dr. Lu, I knew I was making the right choice to have him do my surgery.

-Dru Hay

Super friendly staff, I was seen very quickly Dr. Ritacca was absolutely brilliant! Looking forward to my next visit.
