I know bikini season is a long way away, but to get that sexy, curvy, younger-looking body that a Mommy Makeover can deliver, you need to book your surgery now in January.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Mommy Makeover has become incredibly popular over the last decade. The main reason, and I’ve seen this in my own practice, is because it allows plastic surgeons to address multiple problem areas in a single surgery. Especially these days, time is a valuable commodity, and women patients appreciate any plastic surgery procedure that can safely and effectively trim, tighten and rejuvenate their bodies all at once. This means less recovery time so they can get back to their lives sooner.
A Mommy Makeover is actually a combination of procedures: you choose which ones
Personalized for each individual patient, a Mommy Makeover can help correct a wide array of body issues with a combination of body sculpting procedures. Whether you decide to have one surgery or several, a Mommy Makeover helps women of all ages and body types regain the body they had earlier in their lives, or an even better one than they had before.
Whether performed under local, “twilight” or general anesthesia, a Mommy Makeover can include any or all of these six surgical procedures:
- Breast augmentation/breast implants
Breast augmentation surgery is performed to enlarge small breasts, underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have decreased in size after a woman has had children. I can also make breasts more symmetrical if one is significantly larger or smaller than the other. I offer four types of breast implants, all of them safe: saline (sterile saltwater), silicone, the IDEAL Implant and Natrelle® gummy.
- Breast lift
Breast lift surgery restores the shape and contour of breasts that have sagged as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, age, gravity, heredity and other factors. This procedure re-positions the nipple and areola (the pink skin surrounding the nipple) to a higher position, moves the breast tissue to a higher level, removes excess skin from the lower portion of the breast, and reshapes the remaining breast skin.
Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. As long as you maintain your weight, liposuction is a permanent solution for fat removal. The most commonly-requested areas of the body for liposuction are: waist, hips, flanks, arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks and lower legs.
- Brazilian butt lift
A Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to take pockets of excess fat from unwanted areas such as your belly, waist or thighs and transfer it to the buttocks area, increasing the size, shape, position and fullness of your butt. The benefits of a Brazilian butt lift are two-fold: it slims and trims those areas where you have too much fat, while giving you a higher, fuller, firmer butt. Plus, since a Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat, there is very little risk of rejection.
- Tummy tuck
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is a highly effective way to reduce excess fat and skin and tighten abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck removes loose, flabby skin that has lost its shape and elasticity, strengthens weakened stomach muscles, improves the look and shape of the belly button, defines the waist, removes stretch marks, and creates a smoother, tighter midsection.
- Lower body lift
Lower body lift surgery, often done in conjunction with liposuction, reduces excess fat and loose, hanging skin. It is also very effective at tightening and sculpting the buttocks, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips and abdomen. This surgery may also help minimize the appearance of cellulite.

Is a Mommy Makeover right for you?
Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover should:
- be in good medical health
- be at or near their ideal body weight
- be finished with childbearing
- not smoke or drink excessively
- be realistic about the results they are expecting to see after surgery
Do you need to lose weight before a Mommy Makeover?
While it is true that some fat will be removed during your Mommy Makeover, you will need to have lost the bulk of your “baby weight” before the surgery. This is necessary for optimal skin resection. I recommend being no more than 25 pounds over your goal weight before the procedure(s).
Is this surgery covered by insurance?
Generally speaking, Mommy Makeover surgery is considered to be an elective cosmetic procedure, meaning that it is not covered by insurance.
