What Are the Elements of a Mommy Makeover?


Breast Augmentation

A woman’s breasts change size and shape throughout a pregnancy and after due to fluctuating hormones and milk production. Eventually, breasts can appear smaller and deflated, or one may be noticeably larger than the other.

Breast augmentation as part of a mommy makeover adds volume to the breasts to make them more prominent and can bring them into proportion with each other and the rest of the body.


Breast Lift

Sagging, stretched-out skin can cause breasts to point downward on the chest. A breast lift makes dropping breasts perkier by removing excess tissue and creating a tighter look. A lift as part of a mommy makeover may also involve reducing the size of the areolas.



Weight gain is a reality for most pregnant women, but many also find that not all fat goes away after the baby arrives. Localized fat deposits from love handles to a double chin can be reduced with liposuction, a surgical solution included in a mommy makeover to loosen fat cells so they can be removed with a special tube called a cannula.


Tummy Tuck

When a baby grows, the rapid gains in size create a lot of physical changes in a woman’s body. Specifically, as the baby gets larger throughout pregnancy, this growth can stretch out the mother’s internal abdominal tissues that otherwise hold everything in place. Skin on the belly also stretches out as the “bump” increases.

Once the baby is out, the skin and other tissues may not go back to the way they were before, leaving them loose and sagging. For a mommy makeover, a tummy tuck tightens the abdomen by joining separated abdominal tissue back together and removing excess skin for a flatter belly.


Other Lifts

Loose skin can be a problem all over the body after pregnancy, due to weight fluctuations, which is why a range of lifting procedures is available for inclusion in a mommy makeover. Patients can choose a facelift, buttock lift, thigh lift, and other body contouring options as needed.
