What is a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic surgery is often the only way to restore your body.

There’s no doubt that pregnancy is hard on your body. The muscle and skin tissues expand to accommodate the baby, especially in areas like the abdomen, hips, and breasts. The breasts lose volume and firmness as they shrink back down to their original size. Although diet and exercise may help you lose post-pregnancy weight, plastic surgery is often the only way to restore a tight, shapely figure.

The Mommy Makeover at Clevens Face and Body Specialists in Melbourne, Florida combines several techniques — often breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and Liponique Body Contouring — tailored to your goals. Some patients even choose to add an arm lift or thigh lift, too. Watch the video to learn more about Mommy Makeover.

Do I Need a Mommy Makeover?

Regain your confidence along with your body.

A Mommy Makeover can give you the toned abdomen and lifted, firm breasts that will help you look as good as you feel. While you can still have children after the Mommy Makeover, our breast and body plastic surgery experts recommend waiting to have a Mommy Makeover until you’re finished having children to maximize the benefits of surgery. 

The best way to know what you can achieve with a Mommy Makeover is to meet in consultation with our team. Our practice is one of the country’s leading body contouring centers, and our specialists can guide you as you explore treatments that will help you feel more confident in your body and that can safely achieve your goals. Together, we’ll determine the exact combination of procedures and develop a custom treatment plan.

Mommy Makeover Benefits

The benefits of multiple procedures all at once. 

Since your Mommy Makeover is customized to your needs, you can realize numerous benefits in one procedure, allowing you to minimize downtime and address all your areas of concern for optimal results.

For many patients, that means adding lift and restoring fullness and volume with a breast augmentation and breast lift, as well as removing loose skin and tightening up abdominal muscles with a tummy tuck. You may also add Liponique, our signature approach to liposuction that safely removes excess fat deposits and, in turn, reveals beautiful body contours. Arm and thigh lifts can help you further tighten up your body and remove loose, sagging skin. Talk with the breast and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists about your goals to see what a Mommy Makeover can do for you.

Listen as we explain why this popular combination of procedures is known as a Mommy Makeover.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Begin recovery the same day as your procedure. 

Most women are home recovering from their Mommy Makeover the same day. The entire recovery process will take 10 days to six weeks, depending on the treatments you choose. To aid in the most comfortable recovery possible, we offer a game-changing local analgesic medicine, Exparel, used while you’re still asleep during your procedure. Exparel minimizes pain post-surgery and reduces the need for any narcotic pain medications and the nausea they cause.

Exparel is often combined with TXA (tranexamic acid) and your body’s own natural healing cells to reduce bruising, minimize pain, and speed healing. During your consultation, we can discuss whether this option is right for you so you can get back to your daily routine more quickly. 

Most patients return to work about 10 to 14 days after surgery, though we recommend waiting six weeks before resuming heavy exercise. As your body fully heals over three to four months, you'll see the benefits of your Mommy Makeover continue to reveal themselves.

Mommy Makeover Procedure FAQs

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The Mommy Makeover is a rejuvenating set of cosmetic surgical procedures designed to restore your pre-pregnancy figure. Normally, the procedure will include breast augmentation and/or breast lift and a tummy tuck. Depending on the patient, some women will also add a corrective surgery, such as liposuction, for a more sculpted, youthful result.

Who is a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

A woman who notices her figure change with age, following childbirth, or after a dramatic weight loss may make an excellent candidate for the Mommy Makeover. The ideal patient will be in good health, understand the surgical procedures, and hold realistic expectations for their final results.

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

Recovering from a Mommy Makeover will normally take from 10 days to six weeks. 

When can I return to work after my Mommy Makeover?

Most patients can return to work and other non-strenuous activities in less than one week.

Is the Mommy Makeover a good method for weight loss?

The Mommy Makeover procedure is not a means of weight loss. While liposuction can help remove excess fat, the tummy tuck and breast enhancement are purely sculpting procedures. In fact, the ideal candidate for the Mommy Makeover will be someone close to an ideal, stable weight. However, some patients may have a Mommy Makeover as part of their ongoing weight loss efforts.

How long do Mommy Makeover results last?

While the results from a Mommy Makeover can be long lasting, it is important to continue with a healthy lifestyle and consistent exercise routine. Significant weight gain or additional pregnancies can undo the surgical results. The longest-lasting results are found in women who maintain a stable weight.

Will there be scarring after my Mommy Makeover?

Visible scarring will occur after a Mommy Makeover at the locations of the incisions; however, the scars typically fade over time. Incisions are carefully placed and meticulously closed with expert plastic surgical technique so they can easily be concealed under clothing or swimwear.

What are the potential complications of a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover is considered a safe procedure. Any surgical technique will carry some risk of complications. Although rare, potential problems following a Mommy Makeover can include excessive bleeding, infection, and scarring.

How much does a Mommy Makeover cost?

Like other plastic surgery procedures, the price of a Mommy Makeover will vary based on a number of factors including the training, education, and experience of your plastic surgeon, as well as where the procedure is performed. In addition, because a Mommy Makeover typically includes a combination of procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction, or a tummy tuck, the cost of your Mommy Makeover will depend on exactly which procedures you choose. At our practice in Central Florida, Mommy Makeovers are performed by experienced board certified plastic surgeons who specialize in breast surgery and body contouring. Our Mommy Makeover procedures cost $12,000 and up. The best way to learn more is to meet with your plastic surgeon in consultation. 

What does a Mommy Makeover consist of?

A Mommy Makeover is typically a combination of plastic surgery procedures that may include a breast surgery such as breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction, as well as body contouring. The most popular body contouring options include liposuction and tummy tuck. For optimal results, a patient may add on other procedures at the same time such as arm lift or thigh lift.
