Mommy Makeover Surgical Procedure


The aim of a mommy makeover procedure is restoring the shape of a woman’s body post pregnancy. Most women experience changes in their bodies after childbirth. Changes are seen in areas like the breasts, abdomen, waist, and buttocks.

A mommy makeover involves many techniques to address issues with different parts of the body. There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration:

  • Amount of restoration required
  • Area where the incisions are to be made
  • Type of implant to be used

Personalized Mommy Makeover by Dr. Peter Kay

The mommy makeover is one of our top-requested plastic surgeries. However, it isn’t actually one specific surgery. Rather, it refers to a customized suite of cosmetic enhancements that can help women reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies. Each makeover is personalized to fit the needs, lifestyle, and preferences of each individual patient. At Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, Dr. Kay works closely with each patient to ensure she is fully satisfied with the results of her mommy makeover.

Procedures Included in Mommy Makeover

Since the breasts and abdomen are common areas affected by pregnancy, a mommy makeover generally focuses on surgical procedures of the breast and abdomen. Pregnancy and breast-feeding results in enlargement of the breasts. Once the mother stops breastfeeding and the breasts return back to the ‘normal’ size, it could lead to a significant loss in overall breast volume, resulting in noticeable sagging. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues stretch to accommodate the growing baby. Unfortunately, post-delivery, these stretched tissues and skin may not bounce back to their pre-pregnancy shape, resulting in sagging skin and stretch marks.

During your consultation with Dr. Kay, you will be encouraged to share your aesthetic concerns and goals. Based on this information, Dr. Kay may recommend any of the following procedures for body contouring purposes:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast reduction or augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction

Good Candidates for Surgery

Many women who have given birth are good candidates for surgery. However, at Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, we hold a one-on-one session between the surgeon and the patient where the doctor evaluates each patient individually for safety reasons. You may be a good candidate if:

  • You’re in good overall health.
  • You’re a non-smoker.
  • You have realistic expectations.
  • You’ve achieved your ideal body weight or are within that range.

Dr. Kay will need your full medical history in order to make sure it’s safe for you to undergo a mommy makeover.

When to Schedule a Mommy Makeover

When a woman makes the decision to have a mommy makeover, it’s not unusual to want to do it as soon as possible. However, it’s important to carefully schedule these procedures. In some cases, it’s possible to combine all of the desired procedures into one surgical appointment. If you’re planning to have many surgeries performed, however, it may be safer to stagger them. Dr. Kay will provide personalized guidance for your particular situation.

It’s generally best to schedule a mommy makeover surgery after you’ve reached your desired weight range by following a good diet and exercise. This can allow Dr. Kay to remove excess skin post weight loss, giving you a tighter silhouette and a more youthful body. You will also need to wait until after you’re done breastfeeding. If you’re planning on having more children, you might consider delaying a mommy makeover until you’re done growing your family.

The recovery time for a mommy makeover procedure can take from one to two weeks, depending on the types of surgeries included in the mommy makeover.
