Pregnancy, weight changes, and aging can all leave a lasting mark on your body. Stretched skin and unwanted fat can change the way your hips, breasts, waist, upper arms, and other areas look. If you have found yourself avoiding mirrors or form-fitting clothes, Mommy Makeover surgery can help you reclaim your look. This specialized suite of procedures combines our top treatments to transform you from head to toe.

Still, there’s often confusion about the procedure, leading many of our patients to ask what procedures are involved in a Mommy Makeover and what exactly they accomplish. In this blog post, we’ll outline the basics of the procedure and explain which treatments are typically included.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures used to fix common “trouble spots.” It often includes body contouring, breast enhancement, and fat removal procedures. Many women turn to the combination procedure after pregnancy or major weight loss to reshape their bodies. During your first consultation, your doctor will analyze your body to determine which procedures and treatments will help you achieve your goals.

What Procedures Are Involved In a Mommy Makeover?

During a Mommy Makeover, different body contouring and breast enhancement procedures are used alongside one another. But rest assured that combining procedures is generally safe when an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon performs the surgery in an accredited facility.

One of the benefits of a Mommy Makeover is that it is highly customizable and can address a variety of issues. Below are a few of the procedures you will likely consider.

  • Breast Augmentation: Adds shape and volume to the breasts using implants. Implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials.
  • Breast Lift: Removes loose, saggy skin and places the breasts higher along the chest wall.
  • Tummy Tuck: Contours the midsection by removing unwanted fat and skin. It can also fix a permanent “belly pooch” by restoring separated abdominal muscles and strengthening the core.
  • Liposuction: Suctions out unwanted fat from the midsection, flanks, thighs, and more.

Because a Mommy Makeover is so customizable, your results are truly personalized. You can flatten your tummy while restoring your breasts all in a single procedure.

You can also save money and time by “bundling” surgeries and condensing your recovery time into a single healing period.
