Mommy Makeover

The goal of this popular plastic surgery procedure is to restore or enhance the shape and appearance of a woman’s body after childbearing. It begins with a custom-tailored plan by you and your surgeon that can combine several surgical procedures within a single operation often saving stress, recovery and downtime, and costs. While each woman’s body is unique, common procedures might include a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, breast augmentation or additional procedures to help you look and feel your best.

The best candidates for a mommy makeover

Any mother who wishes to enhance her figure and the confidence that follows is a good candidate for a mommy makeover. We encourage patients to wait at least six to nine months after they have stopped breastfeeding their last child. This will allow your body to return to its natural state and your weight won’t continue to fluctuate, which might compromise your results. Other patients wait until their children are older to treat themselves to something they have wanted for years.

What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?

While the mommy makeover is customized for each patient, it can reshape breasts that may have changed through pregnancy and breastfeeding through a breast lift or breast augmentation. A tummy tuck can repair loose abdominal skin and separated muscles caused by pregnancy.

Liposuction can remove fat deposits around the body to restore pre-pregnancy curves. Other procedures can be added as needed. A single operation can save costs and recovery time over separate surgeries.

How long will my results last?

The results of your procedure should be long-lasting provided your weight doesn’t change drastically. To ensure the results from your mommy makeover are long-lasting, we encourage patients to stick with a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and routine exercise schedule.
