Mommy Makeover

Service Description

A mommy makeover is any combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your before-pregnancy appearance, typically focusing on the breasts and abdomen. A typical makeover might include a tummy tuck, a breast procedure such as an augmentation, lift or reduction and liposuction of the legs, arms or trunk. The term “mommy makeover” may be new, but the procedures involved have a long, successful, and safe track record.

How is a mommy makeover procedure performed?

Mommy makeover is a descriptive term, not a procedure, so your first step is to consult with your plastic surgeon and decide on the procedures you will undergo. The following procedures described below are common to mommy makeovers. You can find more extensive information on each procedure in the Smart Beauty Guide.

Tummy tuck – also known as abdominoplasty

What it does
A flabby abdomen results from fat, poor skin elasticity, excess skin, and stretching of the inner girdle of connective tissue (fascia) and abdominal muscles (rectus muscles), extending from the ribs to the pubic bone. This inner girdle, which holds the internal organs in place, gets stretched during pregnancy or weight gain and the stomach protrudes. Abdominoplasty removes loose, excess skin and fat and tightens slack fascia, removing stretch marks and excess skin in the lower abdomen below the belly button.

Liposuction – also known as lipoplasty

What it does
A tummy tuck may narrow your waist, but not your hips. Liposuction can improve the contour of flanks or hips, so the surgeon performing your mommy makeover will likely recommend liposuction of the hips and thighs at the same time as a tummy tuck. Liposuction is also effective in the chest, thighs, neck, upper arms, and knees.

Breast lift – also known as mastopexy

What it does
A breast lift or mastopexy treats sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas, returning a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. Women who desire larger, smaller, or more rounded breasts may want to consider a breast augmentation or breast reduction along with the breast lift.

Breast reduction

What it does
During pregnancy, your breasts usually swell to a fuller size and shape. In some women, the breasts remain larger. This can be a welcome change unless your breasts have become disproportionately large and cause pain, poor posture, rashes, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, or low self-esteem. Breast reduction solves these problems by removing fat and glandular tissue and tightening skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts.

Breast augmentation – also known as augmentation mammaplasty

What it does
Breast augmentation increases or restores breast size using silicone gel implants, saline implants, or fat grafting.

Breast lift combined with breast augmentation

If you want your breasts to be larger in addition to being less droopy, or if you desire to maintain projection and roundness of the breast mound and your drooping is severe, your plastic surgeon may recommend a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation as part of your mommy makeover.

What are my options?

You have many options, beginning with your choice of which procedures to undergo.

  • If you undergo breast augmentation, you will choose between silicone and saline breast implants, or, possibly, fat grafting. Depending on the size and shape you would like to achieve, your surgeon will give you some recommendations.
  • If you undergo liposuction, your plastic surgeon will explain the many new technologies associated with it.
  • In any of the mommy makeover surgeries, your preferences will be a deciding factor in incision placement as much as possible.

If you are in good general health and have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
