Questions About Mommy Makeovers

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that address issues resulting from the aftermath of pregnancy and childbirth. Typical procedures in a Mommy Makeover include:

The specific combination of procedures chosen for a Mommy Makeover is based on your individual goals.

Are all Mommy Makeovers the same?

Each Mommy Makeover is different. Your Mommy Makeover will be based on procedures that address your specific objectives and concerns. If you are not concerned about the size, shape and tone of your breasts, for example, your Mommy Makeover will not include a breast lift.

Who is a candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Any woman in good health who has given birth and is unhappy with the way her body looks is a candidate for a Mommy Makeover. It is highly recommended that you wait until you no longer desire to become pregnant again before having a Mommy Makeover. If you plan having more children, a Mommy Makeover might not be the best choice at this time. If you become pregnant after a Mommy Makeover, many of the results of the surgery can be undone.

How long does it take to recover from a Mommy Makeover?

Recovery time after a Mommy Makeover depends upon the type and number of procedures you have chosen, as well as your own overall physical health. If you only have one or two procedures, such as a breast lift and a mini tummy tuck, your recovery time is likely to be several weeks. If, however, you have a full tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, and a thigh lift, your complete recovery might take a few months. Recovery time is also shorter if you are in overall good health and if you do not smoke.
