Mommy Makeover

Having a child changes your life and your body. Many mothers feel self-conscious about the physical effects of pregnancy and childbirth.

By combining multiple cosmetic procedures into a single plan, a mommy makeover can restore your figure.

Why should I consider a mommy makeover?

There Are Several Questions to Ask Yourself before Pursuing a Makeover

When Did You Give Birth?

Pregnancy and childbirth place a significant amount of strain on your body and having cosmetic surgery too soon afterward can be dangerous. Most surgeons recommend waiting six months or more after giving birth before pursuing invasive plastic surgery.

Are You Done Breastfeeding?

Since breastfeeding can affect the size and volume of your breasts, it is important to wait until you have finished before undergoing any procedures that affect your breasts.

Do You Plan to Have More Children?

Another pregnancy can affect the results of your mommy makeover, so most surgeons recommend waiting until you are finished having kids before getting a makeover.

Are You in Good Health?

Before pursuing any cosmetic surgery, it is important to be in good medical health to ensure you can safely recover from your procedures.

Are You at a Stable Weight?

Significant weight loss or gain can impact the results of your procedure. It is generally a good idea to be at or near your ideal weight before pursuing a mommy makeover.

Mommy Makeovers Are Personalized so Costs Can Vary

A mommy makeover can cost anywhere from $9,000 to $20,000, including the cost of anesthesia and other expenses. The final price depends on which procedures you choose and whether they are performed in phases.

It might be tempting to search out the cheapest option, but it is important not to compromise your goals to save money. Re-treatments and revisions can easily drive the price tag up. Most of the best surgeons offer financing that can bring treatment within your budget.

Every Mommy Makeover Is Unique, But Most Follow a Similar Timeline


The first step is scheduling a consultation with your surgeon to discuss your goals and concerns. 


Based on your consultation, you and your surgeon can choose the right procedures and determine whether your makeover will require a single surgery or multiple phases.

Initial Surgery

On the day of your procedure, you will receive anesthesia and then your surgeon will perform one or more procedures.

Subsequent Phases

While many patients can achieve their goals after a single surgery, others will require multiple phases.

Initial Recovery Takes Several Weeks

Following your procedure, you will likely have gauze and bandages applied to your incisions. You may also have a compression garment placed over the treatment area to control swelling.

For most of the procedures included in a mommy makeover, healing takes several weeks. During this period, swelling will decrease and your results will begin to become apparent. Depending on the type of surgery you undergo, you may not be able to lift heavy objects, so make sure to arrange for childcare if you have small children.

It is important to carefully follow all your surgeon's instructions during this time to protect your health and ensure optimal results.

It May Take Several Months to See Your Final Results

In the months after your surgery, implants will settle, swelling will continue to decrease, and scars will begin to fade. It may take up to a year for swelling to completely subside. Your doctor will monitor your recovery and give advice on ways to maximize your results.

Maintaining a healthy weight can help ensure the results of your procedure. However, it is important to keep in mind that aging can change your appearance.

Be Patient Immediately after Surgery

"It's important to be aware that the results of your surgery will not be evident immediately. During the first three to six weeks of your recovery period, your abdomen and breasts will be swollen. This is not usually anything to be worried about; it's just your body's natural inflammatory response, which aids in healing. Your breasts and stomach will, therefore, appear larger than you hoped they would be, but this effect is only temporary." ​

Nonsurgical Alternatives

Surgery provides the most dramatic and long-lasting results, but there are other options. Thermal skin tightening can address several areas of the body, including the breasts and midsection. CoolSculpting® is a popular means of removing fat without the need for surgery, but it cannot address as much tissue as liposuction in a single session. For a temporary solution, you can also consider shapewear, which are thin, elastic garments worn under your clothes.

Moms deserve to feel confident and attractive. To find out how a mommy makeover can help you love your post-pregnancy body, book a consultation with your doctor.
