After pregnancy and childbirth, not only is your routine forever changed, but so is your body. Many women long to reclaim their pre-baby physique and decide to consult with us about mommy makeover surgery. But a procedure of this transformative nature often evokes many questions before surgery—beginning with, what is included in a mommy makeover?
To empower you to make the best decisions for yourself, we address some of the top mommy makeover questions and concerns we hear from our patients.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a “combination surgery” that allows women to address multiple concerns, such as sagging breasts, loose skin, and separated abdominal muscles, in a single procedure. Every mommy makeover is customized, but a typical mommy makeover surgery may include procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and vaginal rejuvenation.
Despite the name, a mommy makeover isn’t just for moms, either! Many women who feel that that aging or genetics isn’t helping them put their best foot forward often pursue this procedure to transform their physiques.
How Much Is a Mommy Makeover?
There’s never a one-size-fits-all approach to mommy makeover surgery, so your surgical cost will vary depending on your specific needs and chosen procedures. During your consultation, we’ll thoroughly discuss your goals, develop a customized treatment plan, and share detailed pricing so you know exactly what to expect.
Remember, we offer various financing options to help you pay for your mommy makeover. You can use our Build My Bod™ estimator and learn more about factors that affect mommy makeover pricing in this related blog post.
How Long Is a Mommy Makeover Surgery?
On average, mommy makeover surgery can take 3 to 6 hours, depending on the complexities of your chosen procedures and the techniques we use. For example, a tummy tuck alone can take up to 4 hours, depending on the amount of correction required. For your safety, we never exceed a 6-hour surgical window. In most cases, your surgery is performed on an outpatient basis so you can go home after your procedure.
Is Mommy Makeover Surgery Dangerous?
When you’re in the hands of an experienced surgical team, mommy makeover surgery is safe and ideal for women who want to transform their physique within only one surgery and recovery window. However, any surgery carries some level of risk. That’s why choosing a plastic surgeon with a proven track record is essential. They should be able to demonstrate the real results of their mommy makeover patients.
How Long Is a Mommy Makeover Recovery?
Understanding your recovery timeline before surgery can empower you to have a smoother recovery window. Most women should expect at least 2 weeks of rest and downtime before returning to work or revisiting other non-strenuous activities. You can resume exercise within 3 to 6 weeks. While most patients notice significant improvement about a month post-op, achieving your final mommy makeover results can take 6 to 12 months.
