Do I Have To Be a Mom To Have a Mommy Makeover?

When you hear the term “mommy makeover,” it’s easy to think the procedure is only for moms wanting to get their pre-baby bodies back. But you don’t have to be a mom to benefit from this amazing procedure.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?

So, what exactly is a mommy makeover? It’s a customizable set of procedures designed to rejuvenate your body. Typically, it includes one or more of the following:

The great thing is it’s not one-size-fits-all. We tailor your makeover to meet your specific needs, whether you’ve had kids or not.

The Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures

One of the best things about a mommy makeover is that you’re combining multiple procedures into one surgery. This means you only have to go under anesthesia once and have one recovery period. That’s a huge advantage for anyone with a busy life (and isn’t that just about everyone?).

When you combine procedures, your transformation is more harmonious. Your body will look balanced and proportionate because we’re addressing multiple areas at the same time. Plus, it’s typically more cost-effective than having each procedure done separately. Win-win!

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?

You might be wondering, “Is a mommy makeover right for me?” If you’re looking for a major body transformation, the answer is likely yes. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and want to improve multiple areas of their body.

Don’t let the name fool you, though. Many women can benefit from these procedures. Whether you’re a young professional looking to enhance your curves or someone wanting to reverse the effects of aging and gravity, a mommy makeover is tailored just for you. The key is to have a clear vision of your goals and talk openly with us during your consultation.

Customizing Your Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover offers incredible potential for anyone looking to enhance their body contours. Some women choose a combination of procedures to address the effects of aging, while others use it to sculpt their bodies after significant weight loss. Still others simply want to achieve their ideal figure. Whatever your reason for choosing a mommy makeover, combining plastic surgery procedures delivers comprehensive and dramatic results!

In addition to tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, and breast augmentation, some women include vaginal rejuvenation procedures, arm lifts, or thigh lifts in their mommy makeovers. At LJC, we’re here to help you explore your options and create a plan customized to your needs and goals.

Common Mommy Makeover Questions

We know you might have a few questions about what to expect from a mommy makeover, so we’ve got you covered with answers to some of the most common concerns:

How much weight do you lose with a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover isn’t really a weight loss procedure, but you can expect to lose some weight due to the removal of excess skin and fat. The focus is more on sculpting and contouring your body. Procedures such as liposuction target those stubborn fat pockets, giving you a more streamlined look. And we can even reinject the fat to create beautiful contours you’ve never had. Remember, the goal is to enhance your body’s natural shape rather than hitting a specific number on the scale.

How many sizes can I expect to drop after a mommy makeover?

Many patients notice a significant drop in dress size (about 1 to 3 sizes, in general), particularly around the waist and hips after a tummy tuck and liposuction. However, the change in clothing size varies from person to person, depending on the extent of the procedures performed. Check out our before and after photos to get a realistic idea of potential results. These images show you the results we’ve achieved for other patients and give you a good sense of what to expect for yourself.

What about scarring?

Scarring is a natural part of any surgical procedure, but our skilled surgeons take every measure to minimize and conceal scars. They strategically place incisions to be as discreet as possible, often hidden in natural body creases.

Modern techniques and proper postoperative care significantly reduce the appearance of scars. Your surgeon will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your incisions to promote optimal healing. Listen to our mommy makeover podcast with Dr. Diana Breister Ghosh to learn more about scarring and mommy makeover surgery.
