Mommy MakeovePregnancy, breastfeeding, and childbirth can all lead to significant changes in a woman’s body. In some cases, women may feel less confident about their appearance. In some cases, a mommy makeover can help a woman reshape her body and restore her pre-pregnancy figure. It is important to understand this surgery and whether it is right for you.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?

A mommy makeover is a combination of multiple procedures performed during one surgery. Rather than having to go through multiple, separate surgeries, women can benefit from having reduced costs and recovery time by having multiple areas of the body targeted at once. Some of the procedures that are included in mommy makeovers include the following:

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a procedure that aims to remove excess fat and skin around the abdominal area. This results in a firmer and flatter midsection. Tummy tucks also aim to tighten the underlying muscles to create a more toned appearance.


Liposuction is often used during mommy makeover surgery to remove excess fat deposits. It also helps enhance the results of a tummy tuck by sculpting the treated area.

Breast Augmentation

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to lose shape and volume. As a result, they may appear deflated or asymmetrical. Breast augmentation can help enhance the size, shape, and projection of the breasts to restore a desired appearance or achieve new aesthetic goals. 

Breast Lift

In addition to lost volume, some women can experience drooping and sagging breasts. In this case, a breast lift can be used to lift and reshape the breasts. Excess skin is also removed, and the area is tightened to create a more youthful appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Determining your candidacy for a mommy makeover surgery is important if you are interested in undergoing this procedure. In general, you should meet the following criteria.

Good Physical Health

Chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes, can increase surgical risks and prevent you from healing properly. For this reason, you should be in good overall health before undergoing surgery. 

Stable Weight

It is important to maintain a stable weight before surgery. Any significant changes in your weight can impact the results of the procedure. For this reason, you should be at or near your goal weight.

Recovered From the Pregnancy 

Although there are no strict requirements for when you can undergo this procedure, it is typically recommended that you wait until you have finished having children and you have recovered from pregnancy. Additionally, you may want to wait until after you finish breastfeeding to ensure you do not jeopardize the results of the procedure.

Additionally, you should have realistic expectations for what this surgery can provide.
