What Is a Mommy Makeover?

For those who do not know what a “Mommy Makeover” is, here is a breakdown of everything it entails. It is essentially very simple plastic surgery to address certain issues that many women feel uncomfortable with after giving birth. It entails a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and liposuction.

Tummy Tuck

This procedure is meant to get rid of any unwanted or “loose” skin which can be left over after pregnancy. It permanently firms the skin on the stomach. This is done by creating an incision at the pubic bone, after which the surgeon will tighten the muscles in the area. Once the muscles are tightened to the satisfaction of the surgeon performing the procedure, the excess skin will be removed. Women who have had a caesarean birth will be able to use that same scar for the tummy tuck operation, therefore only having one scar instead of two.

Breast Enhancement

Seeing a Dr in Miami for a mommy makeover will require this as the second step if the mother breast fed the baby. Breastfeeding, while very good for the baby, is also very hard on the breasts of the woman. The feeding method can leave the breasts very saggy and droopy and many women find this hard to accept, especially if they felt they had “nice” breasts before they gave birth. This is easily corrected by simply putting an implant into the breast by either inserting it into an incision made under the armpit or by an incision by the nipple. The insertion point will be up to the surgeon who is performing the mommy makeover in Miami.


This is usually performed in conjunction with the tummy tuck as the two procedures work synergistically to enhance the benefits of both. The liposuction will help to accentuate the woman’s waist and also help to define the abdomen.

The recovery time for a mommy makeover is usually about two to three weeks with no heavy lifting during that time. The vast majority of women who undergo the procedure are very happy when comparing the mommy makeover before and after pictures that are shown to them after surgery is complete. The cost of the procedure will vary by facility, so make sure you call ahead to check what the clinic is charging.
