Regaining your body after pregnancy can feel like an impossible task. Pregnancy causes dramatic changes to your body, and some can only be corrected with surgery. A mommy makeover combines several procedures to help you achieve your post-baby goals

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Your concerns about your post-pregnancy body may include changes to your abdomen, breasts, and stubborn fat pockets. A mommy makeover is a tailored procedure that restores your pre-baby body. While most mommy makeovers have a few core procedures in common, your LPS surgeon will create a treatment plan that addresses your unique concerns.

What is the Average Cost of a Mommy Makeover?

Estimating the cost of a mommy makeover is a challenge. Every mommy makeover is different. The national average cost of the procedure is about $12,800. This estimate may not include fees and expenses such as anesthesia and medications. The cost of a mommy makeover differs between providers and locations. We recommend a consultation to determine how to achieve your desired results best. 

What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

The main components of a mommy makeover work on the areas most noticeably affected by pregnancy. Your mommy makeover will usually include:

Tummy Tuck

This procedure uses an incision on the lower abdomen to remove loose, sagging skin and fat. The remaining skin is tightened, and your surgeon repositions your belly button. They will also repair abdominal muscles that often become separated during pregnancy, restoring a flatter stomach. 

Breast Enhancement 

Many women experience volume loss and sagging breasts after pregnancy. A mommy makeover addresses this with breast enhancement. A breast augmentation can add shape and volume. If you have a significant amount of sagging, you may also benefit from a breast lift. 


Your surgeon uses liposuction to sculpt and shape your body while removing stubborn fat pockets. While you can expect liposuction as part of a tummy tuck, you can have the procedure almost anywhere on your body that has accumulated areas of fat.

How Long is Recovery From a Mommy Makeover?

You will need someone to take you home after your surgery and assist you for at least a day or two. We recommend at least two to three weeks of rest and healing before you resume your usual activities. You will need to wait at least six weeks before exercising or lifting things. Residual swelling can take several months to subside as your body adjusts. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Good candidates for a mommy makeover are in overall good health and have waited at least six months since their pregnancy. Ideal candidates have finished building their families and have reasonable expectations. Whether you had a baby a year ago or decades ago, you may be a good candidate. 

I was recommended to Dr. Morris through my doctor at BID-Needham. Due to prior surgeries, I had some issues and Dr. Morris is the best. He has done a fantastic job with my abdomen core and I feel and look fantastic.
