About the process
Motherhood is a joyful time in every mother’s life. It’s a time to experience change and embrace a new body, which oftentimes, may not be the one you wished for. Although your children are the focus of your life, that does not mean you don't deserve to feel confident about your appearance.
It is a very natural human tendency to want your old body back since gaining weight, stretch marks, and saggy breasts can quickly transform your appearance and affect your self-esteem negatively. It only takes nine months to experience this change but it could take a long time to lose the weight.
"Mommy Makeover," is a combination of post-pregnancy plastic surgery and skin treatments. These procedures are primarily meant to address the unwanted physical effects of pregnancy that cannot be reversed through diet and exercise alone.
The Mommy Makeover Advantage
Mommy Makeovers are uniquely personalized treatment plans, and your doctor will help you select the procedures best suited to your case, based on your cosmetic goals, budget, health, and desired timeline. While none of the procedures are intended to be weight loss treatments, following your Mommy Makeover, you could enjoy a sleeker, younger looking figure that more closely resembles your pre-pregnancy body.
It’s the perfect combination of Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation and a few other face rejuvenating treatments. This is a prime example of the cost savings you can achieve by combining surgery. In addition to the cost savings you will receive by combining these surgeries, you will also have only one period of recovery rather than two. These procedures combined can help women unhappy with their postpartum appearance get their confidence back.
What is Mommy Makeover Procedure
Mommy makeover could be a combination of all or some of the below mentioned procedures:
Breast lift surgery reshapes your breasts' natural tissues into a more lifted, youthful shape.
Your surgeon will remove extra skin, lift your nipples higher on your breasts, and create a more perky, youthful shape.
In many cases, mommy makeover patients choose to have both a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation performed at once.
Abdominoplasty, known commonly as "Tummy Tuck" surgery, is designed to remove excess skin around your midsection.
Depending upon how much excess skin and fat tissue you wish to remove, surgery may be minimal - often called a mini tummy tuck - or may be more extensive, involving liposuction around your hips and flanks.
Arm and Thigh Lifts
Arm and thigh lifts are designed to trim excess skin and fat from your upper arms and thighs to provide a toned, fit look. Mommy makeover procedures more commonly include thigh lift surgery, but some women find that an arm lift is an excellent complement to the results they can achieve with tummy tuck, breast surgery, and other procedures.
Liposuction can be an excellent addition to most mommy makeover procedures. Though it is often an essential part of abdominoplasty, arm lift, and thigh lift surgeries, it can be applied to other areas in which stubborn fat deposits have developed.
Mommy makeover patients often choose to undergo facial rejuvenation in addition to their body procedures. Your surgeon probably will not administer them at the same time as the body contouring procedures, but at a later date, they can add a dramatic complement to your overall appearance. The most common facial rejuvenation treatments performed along with a mommy makeover include:
Lasers can resurface your facial skin, reduce acne scarring and enlarged pores, stimulate collagen production, and generally refresh your look. Laser treatments can also remove unwanted hair that may have developed during pregnancy.

REST & RECOVERY
A compressing garment is usually placed over the operated area. The applied pressure helps drain fluid excesses. Massages are also very important. They ensure the patient that the areas treated are all uniform, and the contour is as natural as possible. Your doctor can prescribe you painkillers to help you manage the pain. Recovery time is about 10 days to two weeks long.
The prognosis of the Mommy Makeover depends on the procedures opted for. It is always advisable to club a few procedures together to save the best on recovery time given the time constraints moms have.
Mommy Makeover Cost
A mommy makeover primarily focuses on the midsection and breasts, but can also address the thighs or virtually any other area you choose. The cost of each treatment can vary quite a bit, but in general, the cost of undergoing several procedures at once will cost less than undergoing each procedure individually.

In fact, if you have scarring or sagging skin as a result of a caesarian, a Mommy Makeover can be a great way to address these blemishes.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
- Can this procedure help eliminate cellulite?
Liposuction can reduce the appearance of cellulite significantly, but it does not eliminate it.
- Will I be able to breastfeed again after surgery?
It is hard to tell. Some women cannot breastfeed even before undergoing this procedure. Others may be affected by the length and time of the procedure. Most doctors avoid damaging the areola and the nerves connected to it. If the surgery gets done correctly, the patient may not lose her ability to breastfeed.
- What can I expect in my initial consultation?
Your plastic surgeon will ask about your general medical history and examine your areas of concern. This is the opportunity for you to discuss what bothers you. Together, you will devise a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and is surgically feasible.
- Is the Mommy Makeover done all at one time?
It can be done in one or two stages, depending on how many areas need to be addressed.
- What are the different options for a Mommy Makeover?
It is some combination of the following: breast lift, with or without augmentation; breast reduction; abdominoplasty(also known as a tummy tuck); mini-abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck); and liposuction.
- Can I have more kids after my Mommy Makeover?
If more children are planned in the near future, it is better to wait, especially on the abdominoplasty. Additional pregnancies are possible following abdominoplasty. However, the final result may not be as good if the tissues are stretched again with another pregnancy.
- Will a caesarean section or hysterectomy affect Mommy Makeover results?
No, the incision for the abdominoplasty is at the same level on the lower abdomen. Some women have bothersome extra skin that hangs over their caesarean section or hysterectomy incision. An abdominoplasty can remove this scar and skin in order to smooth the contour.
- When is the best time to have a Mommy Makeover?
When childbearing is complete and a stable weight has been achieved. Significant weight gain or loss after surgery may diminish the final result.
- I have a hernia. Can an abdominoplasty be done at the same time as the hernia repair?
Hernias at the belly button are very common in women who have had multiple pregnancies or twin/triplet pregnancies. These hernias can be addressed by a general surgeon during the same operation. This combined procedure allows the patient to have a single recovery. Our Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division and General Surgery Division work closely to assist patients with this.
- What are the risks of Mommy Makeover surgery?
The risks are similar to most major operations. They include wound healing, bleeding, infection, and seroma (fluid collection) formation.
- What will prepare me for surgery?
The best way to prepare for an operation is to understand why you are having the operation, what exactly will be performed, and what your results are likely to be. If there are medical issues such as high blood pressure or diabetes, these should be well controlled prior to surgery.
- Where are the incisions?
The incisions will depend upon the procedures chosen and the techniques utilized by your surgeon. In general, for a breast lift, there is a circular incision around the areola which is carried straight down toward the fold under the breast. It is sometimes called a “lollipop” scar, as this is the shape. Placement of an implant (augmentation) can be done through this same incision if needed. For the abdominoplasty, there is a linear incision from hip bone to hip bone which can be hidden under the bikini line. Depending on the type of abdominoplasty, there may or may not be a circular scar around the belly button, as well.
- Will I have scars?
Yes, it is not possible to perform these operations without making incisions and leaving scars. Once the incisions are fully healed, your plastic surgeon will instruct you as to how to minimize the scars and help them fade over time. With careful operative technique and attention to scar management post-operatively, it is our goal to have the finest, smallest scar as possible.
- What can I expect after surgery?
Depending on the types of surgeries chosen and whether the breast, abdomen, or both are addressed, recovery times will vary. You may go home the same day. Alternatively, your plastic surgeon may recommend an overnight stay if extensive surgery was performed, or if you have other medical issues. Recovery can range from one to four weeks in most cases.
- When can I resume normal activities after Mommy Makeover?
It is helpful to have friends and family available to assist you in caring for children for the first week after surgery. Recovery can range from one to four weeks in most cases.
- How long do I need off from a desk job after a Mommy Makeover?
Two to four weeks is the average. Some women feel better sooner and choose to return to work one week after surgery. Patients are asked to refrain from heavy lifting for one month.
- Am I a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
After meeting with you in Allure medspa, Dr.Milan will give you his thoughts as to whether or not you are a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover, but in general, ideal candidates are:
- in their 20s-40s and do not plan any more pregnancies
- have given birth to their last child at least 6 months prior to their makeover
- do not smoke
- What happens during a Mommy Makeover?
The changes that take place as a result of pregnancy and breast feeding – the sagging breasts, the flabby tummies, the stubborn pockets of fat – can all be addressed at the time of your procedure. Dr. Milan will sit down with you and carefully listen to what your goals are for your procedure, as some women are looking to simply reclaim their pre-pregnancy physique, while others want a more dramatic enhancement to their look. He will then outline a plan for your procedure, and address each area of concern, which can include:
- Enhancement of the breasts, through augmentation, lift, or both
- Narrowing and flattening of the tummy, through a tummy tuck, liposuction, or both
- Contouring of the hips, thighs, and buttocks through liposuction
- What is the recovery from a Mommy Makeover like?
Your recovery will depend in part on the type of procedure or procedures performed as well as your individual ability to heal from surgery. In general, Dr. Milan recommends 10-14 days off from work, so that you may recover in the comfort of your home. Most procedures are outpatient procedures (you will not need to stay in the hospital) and take 2-4 hours. Dr. Milan will see you at regular intervals after your procedure to monitor your progress, and most patients report feeling quite comfortable between 2-3 weeks after their procedure.
