What Does a Mommy Makeover Consist of?

A mother with a young girl in her arms laughs and smiles Motherhood is wonderful! But as mothers, we know that our bodies change after carrying a baby. If you have more than one child, these changes may be significant. Know that your body is beautiful no matter what, and that a mommy makeover is possible if you want a bit of extra confidence and swagger.

A mommy makeover addresses physical changes that often  accompany pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and raising children. If you are a mom, you may have noticed some of these physical changes:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Breasts that have lost their shape, fullness, and perkiness
  • Nipples that have fallen lower on the breasts
  • Stretched areolas
  • Excess, stubborn fat on your abdomen, thighs, and elsewhere
  • Protruding, bulging skin around your abdomen that has lost firmness and elasticity

Because every woman’s body is different, and pregnancy affects our bodies in different ways, a mommy makeover is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Instead, Dr. Sean Bidic, Dr. Vinay Gundlapalli and Dr. Casey Gene Sheck tailor their recommendations to individual goals.

So what does a mommy makeover consist of? It is a custom set of two or more cosmetic procedures. The approach typically includes one or more of the following:

Sometimes the procedures can be combined into one surgical appointment, which means you have the advantage of a single recovery for multiple procedures.

Pregnancy most often affects the breasts and abdomen, so a mommy makeover often focuses on these areas. Stretching, excess fat accumulation, and loss of firmness are common. A tummy tuck is usually included to remove the puffy skin and fat over the abdomen. A tummy tuck includes repair of stretched and separated muscles of the abdominal wall, which is a condition known as diastasis recti. All in all, a mommy makeover consists of treatments you choose!
