Mommy Makeover Overview
A woman’s body undergoes many changes during pregnancy and childbirth, and some of them aren’t things that you may want to hold on to. Exercise and a healthy diet can help to restore your body to the way it once was, but some areas may need a little more help. A Mommy Makeover is a group of surgical procedures designed to help you address some of the most common concerns that you may now have with your body.
- Do your breasts now sag thanks to breastfeeding?
- Do you have a tummy pooch that you just can’t shift?
- Are you carrying a little extra fat that you are struggling to get rid of?
Then a Mommy Makeover at The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery could be the procedure for you.
A Mommy Makeover is a highly customizable procedure and can be tailored to your specific body concerns. A typical Mommy Makeover may include procedures such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, a breast lift, and breast augmentation, but these can be adjusted depending on the areas that you want to work on.
Here at The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Scott A. Brenman, our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, will perform your Mommy Makeover as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you will get to go home the same day as your surgery. Your recovery time will vary depending on the specific procedures that you have opted for, but, in general, most patients choose to take between one and two weeks off work unless they work in jobs that involve a lot of manual labor.
Average Cost of a Mommy Makeover
It’s very difficult to give an average cost for a Mommy Makeover because every Mommy Makeover is slightly different. Whereas one mommy may only want a breast lift, another may also want a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction, which will add to the cost. As a ballpark figure, most women can expect to pay between $9,000 and $20,000, depending on the procedures they opt for and the surgeon they choose. With this in mind, it is best to book a consultation with Dr. Brenman as soon as possible to discuss your procedure preferences so that you can receive a more accurate estimation.

Am I a Candidate for Mommy Makeover?
If you’re a mom who is no longer happy with her body, then you could be the perfect candidate for a Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover can help to restore damaged abdominal muscles, address loose skin, correct drooping breasts, and, if you choose, increase the volume and fullness of your breasts with implants. Candidates should also have finished breastfeeding for at least six months and have no plans to have additional children as this could undo the hard work put in during the procedure. Of course, although a Mommy Makeover is generally targeted at moms whose bodies have been changed during pregnancy and childbirth, anyone who is unhappy with their body can benefit from the procedures usually conducted during a Mommy Makeover.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
