Schedule A Consultation


A mommy makeover is not a single surgical procedure, but rather a customized combination of cosmetic surgeries designed to address the physical changes experienced by women after pregnancy and childbirth. These changes can include:

  • Stretched or sagging abdominal skin
  • Loss of breast volume and shape
  • Weakened abdominal muscles
  • Liposuction for stubborn fat deposits

Who is a Candidate?

Mommy makeovers are typically ideal for women who are in good overall health, have maintained a stable weight after childbirth, and are finished having children. Realistic expectations and a focus on improvement, not achieving a pre-pregnancy body, are important for a successful outcome.

Common Procedures in a Mommy Makeover

  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): Tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin to create a flatter, more toned stomach.
  • Breast Augmentation: Increases breast volume and fullness with implants.
  • Breast Lift (Mastopexy): Lifts and reshapes sagging breasts without changing size.
  • Liposuction: Removes unwanted fat deposits from areas like the abdomen, flanks, and thighs.


  • Improves body contour and restores a more pre-pregnancy appearance
  • Can boost self-confidence and body image
  • Addresses physical discomfort caused by stretched or sagging tissues


  • Major surgery with potential risks like infection, bleeding, and anesthesia complications.
  • Requires significant downtime for recovery.
  • Can be expensive, as it involves multiple procedures.
  • May not completely restore a pre-pregnancy body


  • Non-surgical options: Exercise programs and body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting may offer some improvement, but results are often less dramatic than surgery.
  • Focus on Fitness: A healthy diet and exercise routine can improve overall health and well-being, even if it doesn’t achieve the same results as surgery.

Recovery Time

  • Varies depending on the specific procedures performed. Generally, expect 2-4 weeks for initial healing with limitations on activity and wearing compression garments.
  • Full recovery with unrestricted movement can take up to 3-6 months.
