Is a Mommy Makeover for You?

If you’ve noticed that your body seems less resilient and shapely after giving birth, you may be considering different ways to get back to your pre-pregnancy shape. A mommy makeover can reshape your body, improve your appearance, and help you feel more vital. It also requires a significant commitment to healing. Below, we’ll outline the procedures that may be included in a mommy makeover, so you can consider whether this treatment could be right for you.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a popular surgical treatment that helps new moms rejuvenate their post-pregnancy bodies. It includes a combination of carefully selected procedures that are customized to address specific concerns, like loose skin, sagging breasts, and stubborn areas of fat. The mommy makeover fixes these issues, so you feel more like yourself.

The benefits of a mommy makeover may include:

  • increased confidence after regaining your pre-pregnancy figure
  • faster overall recovery time by having several procedures at once
  • more youthful silhouette with tighter skin, firmer breasts, and a sculpted shape

Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover usually includes at least two different procedures that are personalized to meet your aesthetic goals. It may include any or several of the following surgeries:

  • tummy tuck or circumferential abdominoplasty
  • breast augmentation, lift, or reduction
  • liposuction
  • vaginal rejuvenation
  • arm lift
  • thigh lift
  • Brazilian butt lift

Depending on the number and extent of the procedures you choose, your mommy makeover may be performed as a single operation or in multiple operations.

Are You an Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Having a mommy makeover is something you should do for yourself, not to please someone else or try to meet an ideal. Good candidates for mommy makeovers:

  • are in good health and are at a desirable and stable post-pregnancy weight.
  • are non-smokers.
  • have distended breasts and excess skin.
  • are not planning to have more children.
  • gave birth at least six months ago.
  • stopped nursing at least six months ago.
  • experienced a Caesarian section delivery.
  • suffered a hernia during birth.
  • have realistic expectations for the procedure.
  • are committed to recovering and maintaining their health.

The Importance of a Professional Consultation

Getting a mommy makeover can be a great way to reclaim your physique, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality of life after childbirth. Because a mommy makeover involves several major surgeries that will affect your body for years to come, it’s imperative that your procedures are performed by a skilled, experienced, and aesthetically sensitive surgeon with an outstanding reputation.
