What is a Mommy Makeover?


The process of pregnancy and giving birth is truly one of life’s most beautiful experiences. There is nothing in the world that can compare to the love you feel for your child, and the effort it takes to bring them into the world is certainly worth it. However, what is less beautiful is the way that motherhood can take a toll on your body. If you have kids, you may have heard your friends or relatives talk about an exciting way to update your post-childbearing body. This procedure is called a mommy makeover.

What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a carefully tailored series of procedures that are done to improve the look of your body after you have finished having children. In general, this can include liposuction, tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, breast reduction, and any other surgery that is needed to bring your body back into shape.

Despite your best efforts to eat well and maintain a proper exercise routine after giving birth, there are some effects of pregnancy that just refuse to be reached in this manner. Especially if you are struggling with sagging skin, drooping breasts, a protruding abdomen, stretch marks, or stubborn fat pockets, a mommy makeover could be exactly what you need to feel good about your figure once more.

When can I get a Mommy Makeover?

Although a woman can get a mommy makeover whenever she is physically healthy and ready to do so, we advise waiting until after you have finished having children. This is due to the fact that another round of pregnancy and childbirth will likely undo much of the work that the mommy makeover sought to address.

It is also important to note that even women who are not mothers are eligible for a mommy makeover. If this combination of surgeries seems most suited to your body’s unique needs, there is no requirement to elect to have this service.
