Mommy Makeover

Helping you take your figure back, the “mommy makeover” is a combination of multiple treatments designed to help regain your youthful, pre-baby body. It is a fairly standard combination of cosmetic surgery procedures performed together during one operation: a breast lift, a tummy tuck (extended or circular), and liposuction (normally of the tummy and lower body).

Benefits and Risks

The primary benefit of a mommy makeover is that it can help to restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy state. This procedure can help to address a number of common issues that women experience after childbirth, including sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, and excess fat deposits. Additionally, a mommy makeover can help to improve a woman’s self-esteem and confidence, which can have a positive impact on her overall quality of life.

As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with a mommy makeover. These risks can include bleeding, infection, scarring, nerve damage, and IV sedation complications. It is important to discuss these risks with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure to ensure that you are fully informed of the potential risks and complications.

Safety and Recovery

When performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon, a mommy makeover is generally a safe procedure. However, it is important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing mommy makeovers to ensure that the procedure is performed safely and effectively.

The recovery time for a mommy makeover can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and the individual’s overall health. In general, most individuals can expect to take about two to three weeks off from work or other activities to allow for proper healing. During this time, it is important to avoid strenuous activities and to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure optimal healing.

Cost and Price Differences

The cost of a mommy makeover can vary depending on a number of factors, including the extent of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, and the geographic location of the practice. On average, a mommy makeover in the United States can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $40,000.

However, the cost of a mommy makeover in Mexico is typically much lower, with prices ranging from 40% to 60% less than USA prices.

The Best Candidates

Women considering this set of procedures ideally should be done having children and must have made a full recovery from childbirth. On the other hand, recent mothers should also finish breastfeeding. Although body-sculpting techniques like tummy tuck and/or liposuction, along with breast augmentation, breast lift, and/or breast reduction, are generally part of a mommy makeover. In short, every woman is different, so each procedure is highly personalized, keeping in mind its natural proportions.

Comparison to similar procedures and procedure details

Mommy Makeover

There are a number of procedures that are similar to a mommy makeover, including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or lift, and liposuction. However, a mommy makeover is unique in that it combines these procedures into a single surgical session, which can help to minimize downtime and recovery time. Each of these procedures is designed to address specific areas of the body and may be more appropriate for certain individuals depending on their individual needs.

A mommy makeover typically involves a combination of surgical procedures, including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or lift, and liposuction. The procedure typically takes several hours to complete and is performed under general IV sedation. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions in strategic locations to allow for the removal of excess skin and fat and the repositioning of the breasts. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be closed and the individual will be given post-operative instructions to follow.
