Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can take a toll on a woman’s body in cosmetic terms. Many mothers wish to restore their pre-pregnancy figure after they have had children, and do not have any future plan for another pregnancy. Mommy makeover plastic surgery procedure may be an ideal solution in such cases where significant cosmetic correction is required in multiple areas.
An advantage with a mommy makeover is that the procedure is highly customizable to suit the specific needs of a candidate. The surgeon will carefully assess the patient’s anatomical and aesthetic needs and suggest an appropriate mommy makeover surgical plan. The procedure will be designed to address problems such as fat reduction, skin tightening and removal of stretch marks and cellulite – all in a single surgical procedure.

Whether a woman gives birth naturally or undergoes a C-section, she can make a stellar candidate for mommy makeover plastic surgery in either case. The candidate should be in good general health and be declared fit by the surgeon to sustain a major procedure such as mommy makeover.
Her primary goal would be to reverse the cosmetic impacts of pregnancy, and regain youthful body contours, smooth, and firm skin and reduction of stretch marks, scars, and cellulite appearance. She should have a stable body weight and a commitment to maintain a balanced and active lifestyle following the surgery.
A mommy makeover surgery will typically be performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery can vary depending on the number of procedures and the extent of correction required. The plastic surgeon will customize the mommy makeover to suit the unique needs of the patient.
The surgeon’s goal will be to make the procedure less invasive in order to have less conspicuous scarring, shorter recovery and minimal post-operative discomfort. In some cases, the surgeon may combine one or more non-invasive procedures along with surgery to achieve more effective outcomes.
One or more of the following procedures are usually included as a part of a mommy makeover:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
- Body Lift
- Cellulite Reduction
- Stretch Mark Removal
- Non-invasive procedures
Some women may suffer volume loss in the breasts following pregnancy or breastfeeding, which can be correct with breast implants. On the other hand, some women may develop loose skin in the breasts and abdominal due to overstretching during pregnancy. This may be corrected with breast lift and tummy tuck surgeries. Breast reduction may be recommended where the mom has developed oversized breasts after pregnancy.
Liposuction is often included in mommy makeovers to improve body contours in a less invasive manner.
