If you’re like most women, once you have a baby, you want to get your body back. But pregnancy and childbirth can cause changes to your figure that are hard to reverse. If you’re struggling to get your post-baby body back, you may want to consider undergoing a Mommy Makeover. This surgery can help restore your pre-pregnancy figure by addressing the areas of your body that have changed the most.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical procedures that are performed in one setting to reverse many physical changes caused by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It usually involves some combination of liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and/or breast lift surgery to improve your body contours. This procedure is completely customizable, which means it can also be adapted to include related procedures such as facial resurfacing or vaginal rejuvenation to get you closer to your pre-pregnancy appearance.

Do I Need a Mommy Makeover?
If you are unhappy with the changes to your body due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, and you have been unable to improve your body contours through healthy habits, a Mommy Makeover may be a great option for you. This procedure can accomplish what diet and exercise often cannot and could restore your figure to its pre-pregnancy appearance.
What Could a Mommy Makeover Do for Me?
A Mommy Makeover can achieve the following:
- Lift and reshape the breasts
- Volumize deflated breasts
- Tighten the abdominal muscles
- Flatten the abdomen
- Reduce excess fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and other areas
- Refine your body contours
It can also address other areas of the body that are adversely affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. Your surgeon can help you understand what aesthetic procedures may be included in the Mommy Makeover to help you achieve your desired results.
What Do I Need to Know to Plan My Mommy Makeover?
Once you decide that a Mommy Makeover is right for you, you will need to make sure you are in good health overall. This includes being at a healthy, stable body weight and not currently nursing. It’s important to note that surgeons recommend saving the Mommy Makeover procedure for after you are finished having children in order to achieve and maintain the best results. Because the procedure is fully customizable, it’s also important to discuss your goals, expectations, and limitations with your plastic surgeon so that the right procedures are selected and you are properly prepared for your experience. Lastly, you will need to be prepared for the full surgical experience including recovery. The initial recovery will last 7 to 14 days before you will feel up to doing normal light activities, and it will be approximately 6 weeks before you will be ready to perform strenuous physical activities.
A Mommy Makeover is a great way to restore your body after having children. With careful planning and preparation, you can look and feel your best again in no time at all. Get back the shape and form that pregnancy has taken away with the Mommy Makeover!
