What is a Mommy Makeover, and is it right for me?

What is a Mommy Makeover, and is it right for me?

Have you been struggling with the changes to your body after pregnancy and childbirth? If so, you’re not alone. Many, if not most, women experience significant body changes after having children. Getting back in shape can be really challenging. If you find that you need a little boost beyond diet and exercise, a mommy makeover may be what you are looking for.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a cosmetic surgery that combines several different procedures to address changes in a woman’s body after childbirth. The procedures typically include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or reduction, and liposuction. However, a personal consultation can give you a better idea of your needs.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles. The result is a flatter and firmer stomach. This procedure is especially helpful for women who have developed a “pooch” or sagging abdominal skin after pregnancy.

Breast Augmentation or Reduction

Breast augmentation or reduction surgery enhances or reduces the size and shape of the breasts. Breast augmentation involves the placement of silicone or saline implants, while breast reduction surgery involves removing excess breast tissue and reshaping the breasts.


Liposuction is a procedure that involves the removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the hips, thighs, and abdomen. Liposuction benefits women who have gained weight during pregnancy and have been unable to lose it through diet and exercise.

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?

If you’re considering a mommy makeover, you must understand that it is not trivial and will require significant recovery. You’ll want to be in overall good health. Realistic expectations are a must.

However, it’s important to note that a mommy makeover is a process that supports and is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. While these procedures can help you achieve your desired results, you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to maintain your new shape.

If you’re considering a mommy makeover, the most crucial part of the decision-making process is choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon specializing in the procedure. The doctors at Associates in Plastic Surgery will be able to evaluate your individual needs and goals and recommend the best combination of procedures to help you achieve your desired results.

Overall, a mommy makeover can be an excellent way for moms to regain confidence and achieve their desired body. Contact Associates in Plastic Surgery today to get started.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???
