If pregnancy and breastfeeding have left you wishing for the figure you once had, you might be a candidate for a mommy makeover. This customized procedure addresses all your biggest areas of concern in one surgery. After a mommy makeover, you may find that your clothes fit like they did pre-baby and that your confidence is restored.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Physical changes are a natural part of pregnancy, but you can undo the damage with a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover combines several procedures that restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape. By combining multiple procedures, a mommy makeover lets you save money over having each one separately. It also allows you to recover from all of them simultaneously for less overall recovery time.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
A mommy makeover can include almost any procedure you want. However, these procedures are the most common components of a mommy makeover:
- Breast augmentation to replace lost breast volume
- Breast lift to correct sagging and nipple position
- Tummy tuck to remove loose skin and repair abdominal muscles
- Liposuction to target problem areas
You may also choose to combine your mommy makeover with non-surgical procedures to enhance your benefits. Laser vaginal rejuvenation, for example, helps undo some effects of pregnancy on the vaginal area.
How Long is a Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Each mommy makeover includes different procedures, so the length of the surgery can vary widely. The average mommy makeover may last two to four hours. Dr. Brenman will discuss the details of your procedure and how long you can expect it to take. A mommy makeover is performed under general anesthesia, and you can go home the same day.

What is the Average Cost of a Mommy Makeover?
Since each mommy makeover is a unique process, costs will vary widely. A typical mommy makeover might cost anywhere between $9,000 and $20,000. Factors affecting this cost include:
- The number of procedures included
- Your surgeon’s skill and experience
- Your location
- Other fees and expenses
We recommend scheduling a consultation for an accurate estimate that includes all your expected costs. While expensive, mommy makeovers have an extremely high satisfaction rate, and most women feel that the results are more than worth it.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Good candidates for a mommy makeover are healthy adult women who want to reverse pregnancy-related changes to their bodies. Ideal candidates are finished growing their families since another pregnancy will undo the results of your mommy makeover. You should plan to wait six months to a year after your pregnancy before having the procedure.
