There are ways to show back your body through a series of procedures that are cited as a “mommy makeover”. For many women, having children and starting a family are the most exciting experiences they’ll ever have. Unfortunately, this could also leave a woman’s body feeling and appear quite different compared to the one she had before becoming a mother. Even with a healthy diet and exercise routine, women might desire it’s near impossible to regain the body they once had, which might be stressful and downright frustrating. That said, sagging breasts and lax abdominal skin are corrected all without delay through this customized surgery named mommy makeover. We concentrate on the cosmetic breast and body contouring procedures that are typically a part of a mommy makeover.

What is the Mommy Makeover operation?

The Mommy Makeover operation includes a combination of various surgeries. Each Mommy Makeover can vary depending on the patient’s preferences and needs. A mommy makeover operation may include any combination of aesthetic surgeries as Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction, Liposuction, Body Reshaping with Liposuction and Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgeries as Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty.

Who is a good candidate for Mommy Makeover?

You may not be a good candidate for Mommy Makeover if you have got serious health problems like diabetes, high pressure, a bleeding disorder, a heart condition, or depression. If you smoke or drink an excessive amount of alcohol, you will not be an honest candidate for Mommy Makeover in the first place as many other plastic surgeries.

If you’re considering having a mommy makeover done, it’s important to be back to your previous weight and shape and lose most of the pregnancy weight first. Otherwise, the results of a number of the procedures may not last lifelong. As an example, if you still lose an excessive amount of weight after having Tummy Tuck as a part of your makeover done, you would possibly experience loose skin again and need a follow-up procedure to deal with it. The mommy makeover operations solve issues like sagging skin and it may be ready to provide a tighter, smoother appearance to areas like your abdomen and thighs, but it is not a weight loss procedure, so ensure you are at a stable healthy weight and your child-bearing days are over before having surgery. If you intend to own children or would love to still expand your family, now is not the good time to have a mommy makeover since having children will reverse the results of it. If you would like the results of this cosmetic procedure to last lifelong, you must not plan on having children from now on.

During the birth mother may have a C –section and it may leave a not aesthetic scar and while the Tummy Tuck operation C-section scar can be revised. Most of the time, pregnancy leaves permanent remains in a woman’s body.

Giving birth may be a traumatic event for a woman’s body and requires a minimum of six months’ worth of recovery time before a mommy makeover is often considered. This also applies to women who prefer to breastfeed. Breastfeeding alters the form of a woman’s breasts, so it’s important to attend until they settle into a permanent shape before having this procedure performed.

Which operations are the part of  Mommy Makeover and how are they done?

Tummy Tuck

Mommy Makeover contains several surgeries, such as correction of the abdominal area which we call Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty operation. A typical pregnancy ends with an oversized fluctuation in weight over a brief period of your time (9 months). The degree of enlargement of the uterus could also be significant enough to cause irreversible stretching of the genital area, a normal deformed tissue structure that runs through the center of your abdominal area. This issue after the pregnancy is cited as diastasis recti and that’s why the stretching of the muscles can increase the girth of your abdomen. The increased girth can not be corrected with diet and exercise. An abdominoplasty must be performed to deal with this issue. During the Abdominoplasty, the doctor should cut and open your abdomen and fix the muscles as a part of Tummy Tuck surgery.

Additionally, pregnancy often causes tears within the deeper layers of the skin, manifesting as stretch marks. With time, the ruby or violet color of the stretch marks lightens and typically diminishes noticeably. Regardless, it’s undesirable for several women and also the only way to actually remove them is by excision. After the Tummy Tuck operation patients will get rid of a significant amount of visible stretch marks on their abdomen. Tummy Tuck operation removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal area, after surgery weight gain can cause additional irreversible damage to your remaining abdominal skin and additionally, it can reverse the abdominoplasty results. Thus, it’s recommended that you just are at a stable weight and haven’t experienced significant weight fluctuations for a minimum of 6 months before undergoing an abdominoplasty. There are two types of Tummy Tuck depending on the scar size: mini Tummy Tuck and full Tummy Tuck.

Breast Augmentation

Due to fluctuating hormone levels and changes in your weight during pregnancy and infant feeding the baby, your breast skin may stretch leading to breasts that appear slightly more dilated than before pregnancy. Within the breast augmentation operation, patients could get more full breasts and the asymmetry in the breast can be fixed. The procedure is usually performed with the insertion of silicone implants or fat transfer. In order to get a more natural look and not to use foreign products in their bodies our patients prefer to enlarge their breasts with implants, they require to do this procedure with their own fat. So our doctors can do Liposuction as a part of the Mommy Makeover operation and can use the collected fat for injecting the breasts for making them symmetric and to gain their previous appearance. Also, our doctors can use patient collected fat during the Breast Augmentation with the implants. They can use the fat to inject the different parts of the breast near the implants to make the breasts look more natural and aesthetic.

Breast Lift

A breast lift, or mastopexy, could be a surgical operation that lifts the excessive breast skin and repositions the areola and nipple to a more naturally anatomical place. It doesn’t involve any removal of breast tissue and should be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation. Our doctors can lift patients’ breasts and at the same session, they can replace the breast implants to enlarge the size of the breast. We get more required from our patients to get Breast Lift operation within the combination of Fat Transfer. But our doctors do not recommend it most of the time. The best option to do a breast lift and enlarge the breast at the same session is to do a Breast Lift with Implants. 

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is plastic surgery to reduce the breast size by removing excess skin, glandular tissue and adipose tissue. Thanks to this surgical intervention, you can minimize the load on the spine associated with a large bust, and literally, make your life easier. This type of intervention is classified as serious. The operation is performed under general anesthesia and usually lasts no more than 3 hours. The first stage is to determine the locations of the cuts. This is important so that the stitches are not visible after healing. Cuts can be performed in several locations: Along the edge of the areola to the chest. This method is suitable for minimal intervention. Along the edge of the areola to the chest, where another incision is made. The technique is used when removing a significant amount of tissue.

The specialist then performs a cosmetic suture. A drainage tube is located in the chest, a tight bandage is applied to it, which is responsible for supporting and protecting the mammary glands from mechanical stress. Reduction mammoplasty is often combined with a lift.


Liposuction could also be a minimally invasive operation that permanently removes unwanted fat in stubborn areas. The fat is removed through suction technology and could be superb due to achieving a tailored silhouette that’s impossible to urge through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction isn’t a weight-loss procedure. As a component of Mommy Makeover, our doctors can treat the abdomen, belly, back, inner and outer thigh, arms and legs with Liposuction. It’s also possible to use the fat collected with Liposuction for augmentation of the breast and other parts of the body at the same session counting on patients’ requirements. Our doctor can use the output of Liposuction as a material for doing BBL for shaping the patient’s buttocks.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Operations

As vaginal rejuvenation operations, our doctors can do several different surgeries to boost the shape, size, and appearance of the vaginal area. These operations assist to bring back the soft tissue structures which was the reason for your discomfort and embarrassment. Additionally, normal births may cause widening of the vaginal canal which can be narrowed with vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

Vaginal rejuvenation operations can include clitoral hood reduction, labiaplasty, labia majoraplasty, mentoplasty, and vaginoplasty itself.

Vaginoplasty is performed in several ways, depending on the severity of the damage. For minor deformations, a decrease in tissue elasticity or dryness of the mucous membrane, vaginal contouring is used. At the same time, fillers based on hyaluronic acid are injected into certain areas. When the vagina is stretched or the bladder prolapses, suturing the anterior vaginal wall helps. The back wall is sutured in case of prolapse of the uterus or severe urinary incontinence. After Vaginoplasty surgery, abstinence from sexual activity for 2-3 weeks is recommended. And complete healing of stitches after operations occurs within up to 2 months.

As a part of  Vaginal Rejuvenation Operations, Labiaplasty is performed for both medical and aesthetic reasons. After all, the labia become enlarged not only as a result of a jump in the level of the hormone testosterone but also due to injuries, childbirth, age-related changes. Simultaneously with labiaplasty, you can correct the clitoris pocket – remove excess folds in this area. Plastic surgery of the labia does not affect the ability to have children and the course of future pregnancy, and also preserves the woman’s sexual temperament. Laser labiaplasty does not deprive women of sensitivity in the intimate area, does not leave stitches, and is not too painful.

How much time does the patient need for Recovery?

After the surgery the patient will stay in the clinic for a night one or two under the doctor and nurse control. Our doctors will control the patient’s stitches and wounds if everything is good the patient can be discharged. For the following days you may need a caregiver to help you with your daily life activities, for preparing your meal and taking showers.

If you had Tummy Tuck for the first 3-5 days you will have a pain peak and you may have drains for a few days after surgery and it will be removed the first week.

You must wear a special bra and compression garments to decrease the swelling after the surgery. You can replace a special bra with a regular bra without an underwire or a sportive bra after the breast incision healing, you can protect the healing process and shape your breasts. It also helps to form the breast implants and to be located in breast pockets. Most of the patients prefer to use sportive bras because it is more comfortable and looks good with other clothes. Patients need to sleep on their sides for the first week not to pressure the treated areas. It also helps patients to get up easier.
