Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a customized set of plastic surgeries designed to restore a woman’s body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding – many patients say they leave the procedures feeling and looking better than ever! As such, this suite of treatments addresses the areas that tend to be most affected by motherhood, such as the abdominal area and breasts.

The board-certified plastic surgeons at Huntington Plastic Surgery Institute understand the effects that pregnancy and childbirth can have on a woman, both physically and mentally. With the right set of custom procedures, our team of medical professionals can rejuvenate your body and your self-confidence so that you can focus on the joys of being a mom.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Do?

A woman’s body may experience many changes before, during, and after childbirth and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover typically addresses excess sagging or loose skin as well as a loss in breast volume and altered shape that often come with motherhood and the passage of time.

The most common procedures included in a mommy makeover are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction and fat transfer
  • Tummy tuck

These and other procedures have been combined for many years and are regarded by experts in the field as both safe and very effective.

Patient Information

When is the best time to have a mommy makeover?
We recommend mommy makeovers for women who know they have given birth for the last time. Because the improvements can be lost with significant changes such as weight gain or future pregnancy, the best way to maintain the results of a mommy makeover is to postpone the treatments until you are sure you will not become pregnant again. It is also important to maintain your exercise and diet regimen after you have recovered from the procedure.

A note for moms with small children. Depending on the chosen procedures, you may be required to refrain from heavy lifting while you recover from your surgery – this includes holding babies and small children. If you are raising young children at the time of your mommy makeover, you should ensure that there’s proper childcare assistance in your home during the recovery period.

Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
In addition to having finished childbearing, candidates for a mommy makeover should be in good health, at or near their ideal body weight, and have realistic expectations about the procedures. Your plastic surgeon will carefully explain the most likely outcomes and carefully lay out all of the risks and benefits.
