What is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy MakeoverA mommy makeover is a cosmetic procedure that combines multiple surgical procedures to address the physical changes that occur in a woman’s body as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body shape, or even to enhance her appearance beyond what it was before pregnancy.


A mommy makeover typically includes a combination of breast enhancement, tummy
tuck, and liposuction procedures. Breast enhancement may involve breast
augmentation with implants or a breast lift to restore the shape and position of the
breasts after breastfeeding. A tummy tuck can help to tighten and flatten the abdominal
muscles and remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen. Liposuction may be used
to remove stubborn fat deposits from other areas of the body, such as the hips, thighs,
or arms.


The specific procedures included in a mommy makeover can be customized to meet the
individual needs and goals of each patient. Other procedures that may be included in a
mommy makeover include arm lift, thigh lift, or buttock lift.


The recovery period for the procedure will vary depending on the specific
procedures performed. Generally, patients can expect to experience some swelling,
bruising, and discomfort after surgery, and may need to take several weeks off work and
avoid strenuous activities during this time.


It is important for anyone considering this cosmetic procedure to discuss their goals and
expectations with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if the procedure is
right for them, and to understand the potential risks and benefits of the surgery.
