A mommy makeover is performed using a unique combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to counteract the physical effects of childbearing, and restore and enhance your body.
In general, a mommy makeover may include:
Mommy makeovers can include any or these body contouring procedures depending on your wishes and needs.
For example, some women need breast augmentation to correct severely deflated “pancake” breasts, while others may need breast implants in combination with a breast lift. Still, some women may actually desire a breast reduction with a lift.
In the abdominal area, many women need a full abdominoplasty with tightening of the muscle layer as well as removal of the excess skin and fat, while some may need a mini-abdominoplasty.
Some women may also benefit from liposuction to sculpt the back, hips and thighs; and smooth out their contours.
Preparing for Your Mummy Makeover
It is important to ask yourself certain questions before deciding to have a mommy makeover.
Are you done having children?
If you plan to have more children, wait. The vertical muscles in the abdomen (which are tightened during a tummy tuck) can re-separate.
Are you at a stable weight?
Being at a stable weight before surgery can help maximize the results. Lose all your baby weight with diet and exercise before having plastic surgery.
Are you finished breastfeeding?
You should wait until you are finished breastfeeding before having breast surgery because the enlarged ducts and increased blood vessel activity of the breast during nursing increases bleeding and the risk of infection.
Are do you just want to change you body after weight loss?

Your recovery process will vary based on what your mommy makeover entails. Still, there are some basic precautions and instructions that you can take to help this recovery go as smoothly as possible, including:
•Arrange for someone to help you get around the house and help you with your medication for at least the first 24 hours after your surgery. You will be given medication for the pain and to control nausea that can be caused by the pain medication.
•Try sleeping on several pillows on your back and keep your legs slightly bent at the hips to minimize the tension on your incision, reduce pain and result in a thinner scar.
•Avoid heavy lifting, contact sports and jogging for up to six weeks.
Mummy Makeover Risks
All surgeries have risks, though longer surgeries that involve multiple parts of the body increase these risks. Risks may include (but are not limited to):
•Poor wound healing
•Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
•Possibility of provisional surgery
Mummy Makeover Cost
The cost of your mommy makeover will vary based on the body contouring procedure(s) involved. Multiple procedures often increase operating time, which can result in higher fees.
