If becoming a mom has transformed your body in ways you would like to reverse, a mommy makeover might be right for you. This customized procedure addresses all your post-pregnancy concerns, from stretched skin to facial rejuvenation. You can reclaim the confidence you had in your body before pregnancy,  letting you return to the activities you love. 

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a surgery that combines multiple procedures to correct changes resulting from pregnancy. Concerns often treated with a mommy makeover include sagging abdominal skin, stubborn fat accumulation, and breast changes such as volume loss. Your Longwood Plastic Surgery team will develop a treatment plan that addresses your unique concerns.

What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover can include almost anything that will help you achieve your goals. However, these three procedures are usually included:

Some people choose to include a procedure such as labiaplasty to rejuvenate the vaginal area. You can also take this opportunity to have facial rejuvenation procedures. Combining more procedures into a mommy makeover does not generally increase your recovery time, and it costs less than having them separately. 

How Long Does it Take to Recover From a Mommy Makeover?

Recovery from a mommy makeover depends on the procedures included and the details of your procedure. A tummy tuck has the longest recovery time of the mommy makeover procedures, so your overall recovery time will be similar. Most people experience swelling, bruising, and soreness after their mommy makeover, and you will be limited to light activities with no lifting for at least a week

Most people can return to low-activity jobs within one to three weeks. You may be able to resume your exercise routine after four to six weeks with your surgeon’s approval. Your surgeon will discuss what you can expect from your recovery and your aftercare plan.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

You may benefit from a mommy makeover if you are a healthy adult who wants to address the aesthetic effects of pregnancy on the body. Candidates for a mommy makeover should have achievable goals and understand the benefits and risks of the procedure. You should wait until you are not planning future pregnancies to have a mommy makeover since this will affect your results. 

What Results Will I See After a Mommy Makeover?

You will see changes in your body immediately after your mommy makeover. Most of your swelling will resolve within the first few months, but your full results can continue to evolve for up to a year. You can expect your results to last for many years, although you will continue to see signs of aging over time.
