What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a custom surgical package that addresses multiple areas of the body in a single procedure. Combining procedures has many benefits, including one recovery period, one set of anesthesia and facility costs, and a more extensive aesthetic enhancement.

The procedure has gained widespread popularity among women who have experienced changes in their bodies following pregnancy and individuals who have never been pregnant but desire a more contoured mid-section, enhanced breasts, or other cosmetic improvements.

What Procedures Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers frequently combine breast and body procedures, including:

How Much Does Mommy Makeover Surgery Cost in Idaho?

Because the combination of procedures is customized to your needs, the cost of a mommy makeover cannot be established until after your consultation. At that time, we will determine which procedures and techniques will be used and provide a price estimate. In general, however, we base our procedure prices on the national average (as released each year by The Aesthetic Society) and offer various financing options.

Pregnancy-Related Changes

With pregnancy, a multitude of changes can occur within the body. From the outward displacement of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) causing weakness (or a “pooch”) in the lower abdomen to the loss of fullness or sagging of the breasts, mothers can experience an entire spectrum of postpartum changes. Fortunately, these pregnancy-related changes don’t happen to every woman and some may only occur after multiple pregnancies. Other women begin to notice drastic changes after only one child. The troubling issue for a large number of women coming to my practice for a consultation is that some of these postpartum issues cannot be corrected with diet or exercise alone.

Fixing Abdominal Muscle Separation (Diastasis Recti)

I meet women every day who are sincerely frustrated by the fact that their weakened abdominal muscles seem to only get worse with frequent core exercise. Unfortunately, until the core abdominal muscles are brought back into proper alignment surgically with a tummy tuck, those core exercises often don’t lead to the desired result. In some instance,s strengthening the separated abdominal muscles leads to increased weakness between them or more of a lower “pooch.”

Focusing a Little on Yourself

Mothers devote so much of their time and energy to their children that they often neglect themselves in the process. Mothers considering plastic surgery also seem to be the first to feel self-conscious about focusing on themselves. While this is an individual decision, think about how important a strong sense of self is to strengthening bonds with family and friends. Numerous patients who have gone through the procedure tell us that they wish they would have had it done sooner as it has made them feel so much more confident about their appearance and about themselves in general. For mothers returning to the workplace, there is a lot to be said about an improved sense of self in today’s work environment.

Keep in mind that Mommy Makeovers are not for everyone. You must be in good physical and mental condition to undergo several procedures at one time. It is also important that your goals and expectations are in alignment with what we can accomplish surgically. There are a wide range of breast surgery and body contouring procedures that can be tailored just for you depending on your needs and your time available for recovery.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

Is mommy makeover surgery safe?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon at an accredited surgical facility, mommy makeover surgery is generally safe. We will carefully plan your surgery to minimize the amount of time you spend under anesthesia and take other important safety precautions.

How should I prepare for recovery?

The mommy makeover recovery process will vary depending on which procedures you choose. However, here are some general tips to help you prepare for a smooth recovery:

  • Arrange for someone to assist you during the initial days after surgery.
  • Set up a comfortable recovery “nest” at home with necessities in easy reach.
  • Stock up on healthy foods and fluids to aid in healing.
  • Familiarize yourself with all pre- and postoperative instructions.
  • Raise questions early if you need clarification or advice.

Is it worth it?

Although no surgery can guarantee perfection, mommy makeover patients are among the most highly satisfied with their results. Whether or not it is “worth it” to you will depend on the skill and expertise of your surgeon, your expectations, and your personal reasons for pursuing the surgery.

How many dress sizes could I lose?

The procedures in a mommy makeover can lead to improvements in body contour and size, but it’s important to note that the goal is more about enhancing your body’s shape rather than focusing solely on dress size reduction. That being said, patients can usually lose 2 to 4 dress sizes depending on the extent of contouring. Your surgeon can provide a better idea of the potential changes you can expect based on your body type and the procedures you’re considering.

What happens if I get pregnant after a mommy makeover?

If you become pregnant following a mommy makeover, the changes to your body could potentially affect the results of your procedures. Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can impact the appearance of the breasts, the abdomen, and other treated areas. We generally recommend waiting to get a mommy makeover until after you’ve completed your family. However, if you do become pregnant after the procedure, your pregnancy should not be affected by your previous surgery.
