What Procedures Does Mommy Makeover Surgery Include ?

Mommy Makeover surgery typically encompasses a combination of procedures aimed at restoring a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. The most common procedures include tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles, breast augmentation with breast implants or fat, breast lift or a reduction to address changes in breast volume and sagging, or liposuction to eliminate stubborn, unwanted fat deposits. These procedures can be combined in a single procedure and customized based on individual needs and goals, providing a comprehensive approach to body rejuvenation.

Are All Mommy Makeovers the Same?

No, all mommy makeovers are not the same. The beauty of a mommy makeover surgery lies in its highly individualized nature. Each woman’s body reacts differently to pregnancy and childbirth, exhibiting unique changes.

A mommy makeover is not a universal surgery. The term mommy makeover refers to multiple procedures combined into a single surgery , personalized to fit your post-baby body. Plastic surgeons typically perform these types of cosmetic surgery on the body and breasts to address the physical changes that occur after body changes.

After pregnancy and normal aging, some women may have sagging skin, some excess fat, or others may have stretch marks from significant weight gain. Consequently, a mommy makeover is tailored to meet each individual’s specific desires and needs for cosmetic surgery.

While one patient may benefit more from focusing on breast augmentation to restore lost volume, another may desire a breast lift to rejuvenate sagging breasts, and others may prioritize body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck or liposuction. These may be combined into a single operation.

The initial consultation with your plastic surgeon is crucial in determining the best combination of procedures to achieve your desired outcome. This ensures that each cosmetic surgery is as unique as the individual it is designed for.

Common Mommy Makeover Procedures

A few of the most common surgical procedures offered at AMG Plastic Surgery include:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses implants or fat to enhance the size and shape of the breasts and breast tissue. This breast enhancement can address volume loss, sagging or deflated breasts, and asymmetry caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Breast Lift

Sagging or drooping breasts can occur after pregnancy or breastfeeding. When the breasts quickly fluctuate in size, excess skin left over can cause the tissue to droop. Many patients opt to receive a breast lift, which is a breast surgery to remove excess skin from the chest area and elevate the position of the breasts on the chest. This surgical procedure can be performed alongside a breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Reduction

For some women, pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to become excessively large and heavy, causing discomfort, pain, and even skin irritation. Breast reduction surgery can remove excess tissue and reshape the breasts to create a more balanced and proportionate appearance while also performing a breast lift.

Tummy Tuck

Many women lose the abdominal definition they once had before having children because the abdominal muscles become stretched or torn during pregnancy, and the skin is stretched in the abdominal region. A tummy tuck can restore the abdominal muscles or remove excess skin or slightly loose skin from the abdomen, giving you a toned and firm look. However, due to the changes in the body, a tummy tuck does require several weeks of recovery.


Liposuction can remove stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise and is commonly performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures. Liposuction often targets multiple body areas, such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, or back. The usual recovery is one to two weeks. However, this procedure is not a substitute for weight loss.

Recovery After a Mommy Makeover

Recovery time for a mommy makeover typically varies depending on the procedures performed. While some procedures may have a longer recovery time (tummy tuck), others may only require a few days of rest before you can return to your daily routine (liposuction). It is important to follow your plastic surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully and attend any necessary follow-up appointments. During the recovery period, avoid heavy lifting and maintain good health.

It is common for patients to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort after surgery. Plastic surgeons typically provide pain medication and instructions on how to manage any discomfort after the mommy makeover. It is important to rest and avoid lifting and strenuous activities for the first few weeks after surgery to allow your body to heal properly.


The results of a mommy makeover can be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, it is important to keep in mind that factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect the results of your procedures. Having realistic expectations and understanding that a mommy makeover can help enhance your appearance is important. Still, it cannot stop the natural aging process or return your body to its pre-pregnancy shape. Of course, a significant amount of weight gain or more children will affect your results.

To maintain your results, it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly. It may also be helpful to schedule periodic follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Scheduling a Mommy Makeover

If you are considering a mommy makeover, it is important to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation, you can discuss your goals and concerns, as well as review the procedures typically performed that may be included in your personalized mommy makeover plan.

It is important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon who has a strong track record of performing successful mommy makeovers. You should also make sure to ask any questions you may have and thoroughly understand the risks and benefits of each surgery.
