After you’ve had children, it can be hard to get your body back into shape. You may be fighting to tone your tummy and wondering if your breasts will ever look normal again. It’s time to get your body back. If you’re ready to look and feel your best again, a mommy makeover could be perfect for you. It offers you an effective solution when you are ready to reclaim your pre-baby figure.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover refers to multiple procedures that help you get your body back after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Many women notice that after having children, they are left with sagging breasts, a soft belly and excess, stubborn flab. A mommy makeover corrects these conditions to make your body even better than it was before. Although it has the word “mommy” in its name, nearly any healthy woman can benefit from this set of customized procedures.
What Can It Do for You?
You have probably seen the news reports and magazine stories about celebrity mothers who miraculously got their trim, shapely bodies back after pregnancy. Would it surprise you to know that many of them had help in the form of plastic surgery? Now, you could get the same results quickly and easily with a mommy makeover.
Lift Your Breasts
Get your flat, sagging breasts back up to where they belong. If your breasts have lost volume and are uneven, you can get them high, firm and perky again.
Lose That Tummy Flab
Pregnancy can leave even the most fit woman with a pronounced belly. After one or two pregnancies, your stomach may be stretched out and not want to tighten up. If you had a C-section or other surgery, you probably lost some muscle. This makes it doubly hard to get a tight, firm stomach. With a mommy makeover, you’ll get that flat stomach.
Shed Some Fat
Are you struggling with stubborn fat on your back, thighs or other areas? Many women find these areas hard to slim down after pregnancy. A mommy makeover can help you trim and tone your trouble areas.
Get Your Confidence Back
Pregnancy requires you to focus on the needs of your growing baby. Since then, you’ve probably spent a lot of time taking care of your family and baby.
In the process, you may have lost sight of your own needs. That’s a common occurrence. A mommy makeover gives you the chance to focus on yourself. If you’re not happy with the way you look, it’s time to change it.
A mommy makeover gives you back the firm, youthful body you once had. It gives you a sexy, shapely figure that you’ll be proud to flaunt. Get your self-confidence back and love the way you look.
What is Involved in a Mommy Makeover?
This is a set of cosmetic procedures that focus on the changes caused by pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. Typically, it includes the following procedures.
A breast lift moves your breasts to make them sit higher on your chest. If your breasts are flat and sagging, a breast lift will make them perky and youthful again. This procedure goes by the medical term mastopexy.
During a breast lift procedure, our surgeon removes the excess skin around your breasts to give them lift and height. If your nipples are overstretched and too large, a breast lift can make them smaller.
A tummy tuck is known medically as an abdominoplasty. It involves removing the loose skin and excess fat around your stomach to leave it flat and smooth. A tummy tuck tightens your stomach muscles to give you lasting results.
Liposuction can help you shed extra inches from your thighs, buttocks, back, love handles or double chin. Liposuction is the best available procedure for fast, safe fat loss. Our surgeon can use it to trim and reshape virtually any part of your body that needs additional attention.

Who is a Good Candidate?
If you’re ready to transform your body and your life, you could certainly be ready for a mommy makeover.
You’re at a Normal Weight
You shouldn’t go into a mommy makeover until you’re at a healthy, stable weight. It’s not a weight loss procedure. The surgery is designed to help you trim and shape your trouble spots. Many women reward themselves for weight loss with a total body makeover. If you’ve recently lost weight, a mommy makeover is the perfect way to reward your hard work.
You Don’t Have to Be a Mommy
The term “mommy makeover” doesn’t mean that this procedure is only for women who’ve had children. Any woman who wants to get her body into better shape can benefit from a mommy makeover. It can be used in a number of situations, as each mommy makeover is customized based on the patient’s wants and needs.
Many women find that age and gravity have made their breasts sag. They also find it increasingly difficult to get their bodies in shape despite dieting and exercising. A mommy makeover helps any woman get in her best shape ever.
Are You Ready for Surgery?
You’re probably ready to safely have surgery if you:
- Are at a normal weight.
- Are not breastfeeding or pregnant.
- Are in good health.
- Don’t smoke.
- Plan to keep your weight stable.
- Can take time off to recover.
Enhance Your Results with Additional Procedures
If you’re getting cosmetic surgery, you have a wide choice of additional procedures. You can choose one or several to enhance your results. Before adding a procedure to your mommy makeover, you should discuss your plans with our plastic surgeon. Any of the following can make your results even more impressive.
Add trim, slender thighs to your body makeover. If you have flab on your inner or outer thighs or fat around your knees, a thigh lift can make everything firm and slender.
If you want larger breasts, add breast augmentation to your breast lift. Our surgeon can use implants to create a natural look. Breast augmentation is a great way to add volume while you’re getting your breasts lifted.
Are you fighting flabby upper arms? Many women have trouble firming up this part of their body. If you want instant results, you can get them with an arm lift. An arm lift goes by the medical term brachioplasty.
Make your face look as young as your body with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are non-surgical. They’re a great way to fill in your wrinkles and add volume to various areas of the face. Get full lips, get rid of undereye bags and erase wrinkles. Dermal fillers can make you look younger and more refreshed.
Brazilian Butt Lift
If you want your lower body to look as good as the rest of your body, ask about a Brazilian butt lift. This procedure uses fat from your liposuction to give you a shapely, full backside. If you want your back view to look as sexy as your front view, ask our surgeon about this popular procedure.
What to Expect from Your Procedure
With any cosmetic procedure, preparation is key. You should feel enthusiastic about surgery. You should also have a realistic view of what to expect.
The Surgical Consultation
Always begin with a surgical consultation. Our plastic surgeon is the best person to advise you about the details of your makeover, for instance:
- Which procedure will you get first?
- How much work do you need?
- What additional procedures are you planning to have?
- How should you prepare for the surgery?
Once you put together a plan, you’ll be ready to go ahead with the surgery.
The Surgical Procedure
Your surgery will take place in the comfort of a state-of-the-art surgical facility. You should arrange for a ride home after your surgery. You should also make plans for your aftercare and recovery.
Give your body time to heal after cosmetic surgery. In time, your body will heal, and you’ll see your beautiful new body taking shape. During your recovery, you will wear compression garments. Make sure to wear them for the recommended time and to follow all of our doctor’s instructions for aftercare.
When Will You See Your Results?
You’ll notice some of the changes to your body immediately. You’ll need time to fully heal before you can see and show off your new shape.
