Mommy Makeover  Motherhood can be an incredibly rewarding experience, but it also has challenges. Regaining the body you had before your baby is one of the most difficult aesthetic goals to achieve, even when you follow a rigorous diet and exercise plan. In some cases, surgical procedures known collectively as a mommy makeover can help you reach your goals for your physical appearance after having a baby.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

The term “mommy makeover” refers to a personalized set of procedures, rather than a fixed list. It primarily includes surgery on the breasts and abdomen, which are the areas that change the most during pregnancy. However, a mommy makeover can include procedures for other areas as well, such as facelifts. A plastic surgeon typically performs all the procedures of a mommy makeover in one surgery to save time, although other scheduling options also exist. A mommy makeover may also include non-surgical treatments.


Pregnancy and breastfeeding have a unique effect on each woman's body. Furthermore, every new mother has her own aesthetic goals, making a mommy makeover different for each patient. A detailed consultation with our experienced surgeon is essential for determining the procedures to help you achieve your goals.


The most common procedures included in a mommy makeover include the following:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Abdominoplasty

Breast lift

Sagging and drooping breasts are common after pregnancy, which may require a breast lift to correct. The procedure elevates the breast, generally by removing excess skin. A breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation

Breastfeeding can often cause your chest to look deflated or asymmetrical, which breast augmentation can correct. This procedure can increase the fullness and projection of your breasts.

Tummy Tuck

Giving birth can stretch or even tear your abdominal muscles, causing you to lose definition in that area. Abdominal separation, known medically as diastasis recti, can give your lower abdomen a pooch after your pregnancy. Correcting this condition with just exercise may not be possible, making a tummy tuck a common component of a mommy makeover. This procedure tightens your abdominal muscles and also removes excess skin and fat.
