What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Beyond the Tummy Tuck: What Else is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

For many mothers, the joy of parenthood comes alongside physical changes that can be difficult to adjust to. Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on a woman's body, leaving behind stretched skin, weakened abdominal muscles, and changes in breast size and shape. While these changes are a natural part of motherhood, it's understandable for women to desire a return to their pre-baby body.

Enter the mommy makeover, a personalized combination of surgical procedures designed to address the specific needs of women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth.

While a tummy tuck is often the cornerstone of a mommy makeover, it’s just one piece of a comprehensive approach to body contouring and restoration. In this article, we’ll delve deeper into the world of mommy makeovers, exploring the various procedures that can be included and the transformative results they can achieve.


More Than Just a Tummy Tuck: The Wide Scope of Mommy Makeover Procedures

1. Breast Enhancement:

Breast Lift: This procedure addresses sagging breasts by lifting and reshaping the breast tissue, resulting in a firmer, perkier appearance.
Breast Augmentation: For mothers who desire fuller breasts, implants can be inserted to add volume and enhance their shape.
Breast Reduction: Women with overly large breasts may find them uncomfortable and impractical. A breast reduction can alleviate these issues and create a more proportional silhouette.

2. Liposuction:

Liposuction targets stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise, providing a sleek and sculpted look. Commonly treated areas include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms.

3. Body Contouring Procedures:

Thigh Lift: This procedure removes excess skin and tightens underlying tissues to firm and reshape the thighs.

Arm Lift: Similar to a thigh lift, an arm lift addresses sagging skin and loose muscles in the upper arms.

Body Lift: For mothers seeking a more extensive transformation, a body lift combines several procedures, such as a tummy tuck and thigh lift, to rejuvenate and contour the entire body.

4. Vaginal Rejuvenation:

This procedure addresses the functional and aesthetic changes that can occur in the vaginal area following childbirth. Vaginal rejuvenation can improve muscle tone, restore elasticity, and address concerns like urinary incontinence.

5. Additional Procedures:

Stretch Mark Removal: Utilizing various techniques, stretch marks can be significantly reduced or even completely eliminated.

Scar Revision: Existing scars from previous surgeries or childbirth can be minimized or disguised for a more aesthetically pleasing result.

A Tailored Approach: Choosing the Right Procedures for You


The beauty of a mommy makeover lies in its customizability. During a comprehensive consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, you’ll discuss your individual needs and goals to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique concerns.

Factors to Consider:

Your specific body changes: The procedures included in your mommy makeover will depend on the individual changes your body has undergone.
Your desired outcome: What aspects of your pre-baby body are you eager to restore?
Your overall health and fitness: Certain procedures may require specific pre-operative preparation and adherence to post-operative recovery guidelines.
