Whether you have recently had a baby, or it’s been years since you gave birth, the perfect time for a Mommy Makeover is when you decide you want to restore your pre-pregnancy body or improve your appearance.

A Mommy Makeover can lift, tighten, and enhance areas that have undergone changes due to pregnancy and nursing with dramatic results.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of two or more surgical cosmetic procedures used to restore or enhance a woman’s body after childbirth. Popular procedures often involve those that address tummy fat or breast issues but can include almost any cosmetic surgery.

Customizing Your Mommy Makeover

  • Breast implants – Breast augmentation can restore volume that has been lost due to pregnancy or breastfeeding. This can be performed with or without a breast lift.
  • Breast lift surgery – A lift can perk up breasts that have begun to droop after pregnancy by removing excess skin and tightening glandular tissue.
  • Body lift procedure – A body lift addresses several areas of the body that have excess skin after pregnancy.
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) – A tummy tuck removes excess fat and loose skin after pregnancy and corrects abdominal muscle separation.
  • Liposuction procedure – Liposuction removes excess fat that is difficult to address with exercise and dieting alone.
  • Panniculectomy surgery – A panniculectomy removes the troublesome band of fat and excess skin that hangs from the lower stomach, just above the hips
  • Feminine wellness procedure – A labiaplasty can rejuvenate the vulva for a more appealing and discreet appearance.

You Are More Than a Mommy

After giving birth, your priorities shift, and rightly so! However, you are still a woman, a sensual being who doesn’t have to give up her looks to be a good mom. 

You deserve to feel good about yourself, and when you think about it, your body has already done its part to make you a mother — hasn’t it earned a nice reward?

Having it All

If you are a working mom, you may be thinking, when will I have the time? That’s a valid point and something to think about. Some people say, “you can’t have it all.” Do you believe that?

There is no hard and fast rule about how fast you should get your body back after having a baby. The timing has to be right, and your child may even be in preschool or older by the time you feel comfortable making the changes to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape (or even enhance it).

The point is, it’s your decision. It’s your body, and it’s your life. If you feel uncomfortable about your body after giving birth, you can do something about it. It’s up to you.
