What is a Mommy Makeover?

While babies are a blessing, the effects pregnancy can have on the body are not. Diet and exercise do not always produce the results new mothers desire.

For those who struggle in the gym but long for the body they once had, a mommy makeover can help you return your body to pre-baby shape, boosting your confidence and improving your self-esteem.

A mommy makeover combines popular cosmetic procedures designed to reshape and contour the body, and virtually any procedure can be included. The combination of surgeries to be used in a mommy makeover depend on your individual needs, but commonly includes a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, and breast augmentation. Some other procedures you may consider including in your mommy makeover are a breast lift (mastopexy), breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty), scar revision for those who had a C-section, and a thigh lift. Dr. Kayastha’s mommy makeover for you consists of procedures custom-tailored to your individual needs to improve not only your appearance but your self-confidence, so you can concentrate on being the best mother possible.

Mommy Makeover FAQs

What is all included in a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover most commonly refers to body contouring procedures used to improve the appearance of one’s abdomen and breasts. This usually means some form of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift. If additional breast volume is required, an augmentation can be added to your breast lift. Other areas can also be addressed with a thigh lift, upper arm lift, liposuction, or scar revision.

How do you prepare for a mommy makeover?

Prior to your mommy makeover procedure, you should have everything you need for a successful recovery at home. This includes picking up any prescriptions and supplies you need for a comfortable recovery process. If you have pets or small children, you will want to arrange for a friend or family member to help with their care. You should also arrange for someone to drive you home from your procedure and stay with you for a minimum of 24 hours.

How long should I wait to have a mommy makeover?

Your body should be completely recovered from pregnancy and childbirth before considering a mommy makeover surgery. This usually means at least six months since your delivery or since you finished breastfeeding. This ensures that your body is strong enough to recover successfully from your procedures. If you plan to have more children in the near future, you should hold off on having your procedure.

Can I have a mommy makeover if I want more kids?

If you plan on having more children, it is best to delay your mommy makeover. If you have surgery and have kids afterward, the normal changes associated with pregnancy may cause dropping of your breasts or loosening of your midsection. This may mean additional surgery to regain the best results.

Are Mommy Makeovers dangerous?

Because a mommy makeover is a surgical procedure, there is some risk involved. During your consultation with Dr. Kayastha, youll discuss the risks.

Can a tummy tuck be considered medically necessary?

A tummy tuck is most often considered an elective cosmetic procedure, even when it has medical benefits. A panniculectomy is more often considered medically necessary after massive weight loss.

Do you lose weight after a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover should not be considered a weight loss procedure - rather, it can improve the bodys contour and figure instead of reducing your weight.

What does a mommy makeover cost?

A mommy makeover can be much more costly than other plastic surgery options because it includes multiple procedures. On average, mommy makeover procedures cost anywhere between $10,000 and $20,000, but this can depend on your unique goals and surgical plan.

What is included in the mommy makeover?

How many plastic surgeries can be done at once?

Dr. Kayastha will tell you how many procedures you can undergo based on your health and the procedures desired. Mommy makeovers frequently consist of two or three procedures.

How much fat can be removed during liposuction?

Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, but rather a way to contour specific areas of the body that have a little excess fat. Up to five liters is recommended to be safely removed during a liposuction procedure.

How much did you pay for your mommy makeover?

The cost of mommy makeovers varies substantially by the type of procedures performed, such as abdominoplasty and liposuction.
