Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a series of personalized cosmetic procedures usually performed in one appointment. Since every mommy makeover is unique and based on the woman, her body, and her goals, there is no standard mommy makeover. However, some of the most common surgeries in a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction. A patient doesn’t have to be a parent in order to get a mommy makeover, and many women who have lost a large amount of weight or experienced weight fluctuations in their life may choose to undergo a mommy makeover.

A tummy tuck is a procedure that removes excess skin from the abdomen while strengthening the abdominal muscles. This can be particularly helpful for post-partum women suffering from torn muscles caused by pregnancy. A mini tummy tuck exclusively addresses the skin below the navel. Many tummy tucks also include bellybutton reconstruction and liposuction in the abdomen to remove fatty deposits.

Breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of the breasts with breast implants. It is one of the most commonly requested breast procedures alongside a tummy tuck. However, some women prefer a breast lift, which removes excess breast skin for a more youthful appearance without increasing size via implants.

Liposuction can also be used around the breast area to further enhance shape and reduce “bra bulge.” No matter which procedures you choose to include in your mommy makeover, each makeover is customized for the best possible outcomes.

The benefits of a mommy makeover include:

  • The option to undergo multiple cosmetic surgeries in one appointment to consolidate recovery time

  • A fully customized treatment plan designed to treat specific concerns following pregnancy or large weight fluctuations

  • Women who are post-partum can reclaim their body and confidence with this personalized procedure

  • Patients who opt for a tummy tuck as part of the mommy makeover enjoy a flat, taut stomach and strengthened abdominal muscles

  • Liposuction is the only way to permanently and immediately remove targeted fat that diet and exercise fail to address

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I add facial procedures to a mommy makeover?2020-04-27T09:46:42-07:00

Yes, a mommy makeover can include any surgical or non-surgical treatment desired. The most popular procedures with a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck or mini-tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction, but you can also include an arm lift, thigh lift, a chin implant, brow lift, facelift, and other procedures. Every mommy makeover is completely unique.

Can all of these procedures really be performed at once?2020-04-27T09:51:37-07:00

Since there’s no standardized mommy makeover, the ability to perform multiple surgeries in one appointment depends on the health of the patient and the exact surgeries to be performed. It’s very common for a healthy patient to undergo a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation in one appointment. The time it takes to perform this combination of procedures and the health of the patient are taken into account when determining if a mommy makeover will require one or multiple appointments.

Do I have to wait until I’ve finished having biological children to get a mommy makeover?2020-04-27T09:48:57-07:00

Not necessarily. However, if you are pregnant or have plans to become pregnant soon, you may want to postpone your cosmetic breast surgery and tummy tuck since pregnancy can cause stretching (and post-partum laxity) of the skin and muscles in the abdominal area. However, there are many women who have undergone breast augmentation or breast lifts as well as tummy tucks and have gone on to have healthy pregnancies. This is a personal decision, and your surgeon can help you with your decision. Other types of surgeries regularly included in a mommy makeover, such as a thigh lift or arm lift, are often undergone before having children.

Why is it called a mommy makeover? Can men get this surgery?2020-04-27T09:50:20-07:00

Men can certainly opt for a “mommy makeover,” though they may not use this colloquial term. This procedure earned its name because of the many women who chose the combination of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction after their pregnancy. Many men also undergo and benefit from tummy tucks, liposuction, and “breast” surgery (albeit not an augmentation). Breast augmentation includes breast implants, but surgery for gynecomastia (the removal of excessive chest tissue for men) is a common procedure.

Mommy Makeover Recovery and Other Details

A mommy makeover is a completely personalized suite of surgeries, so recovery time will vary based on the procedures performed and the individual patient. The initial recovery usually ranges from 7 – 10 days, after which patients can perform some mild aspects of their daily tasks such as getting dressed or undressed without help. However, a full recovery can take anywhere from weeks to months. Patients can expect to slowly start returning to more facets of their lives with every day of recovery. You can expect a reasonable timeline to be provided to you from your surgical team based on your health and the surgeries performed.

Spectrum Plastic Surgery is one of the few practices to offer the Vectra 3D Imaging System, which allows your doctor to simulate an “after” photo based on your body and the procedures you are considering. Although before and after galleries and reviews are very helpful, they cannot compare to seeing your body in various “after” simulations. You can learn more about this technology, mommy makeovers, and surgical options during your consultation with a Spectrum Plastic Surgery provider.
