A pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. can cause several types of changes in a woman's body: the breasts lose their firmness, the abdominal area becomes stretched, stubborn fatty deposits and stretch marks appear. Not all women face those effects; for some, they will disappear gradually, but for others, they will be more resistant and annoying. The mommy makeover combines several cosmetic surgery techniques that help correct these pregnancy effects. These post-pregnancy surgeries generally include breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

How Does it Work?
The techniques associated with a mommy makeover vary depending on the patient’s anatomy, her desire and how her body has evolved after one or more pregnancies. Mommy makeover is generally the combination of breast surgery (breast lifting and / or breast augmentation) and silhouette surgery (liposuction, tummy tuck) procedures. In some cases, the procedures performed also include buttock surgery or genital cosmetic surgery.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Surgery Involve?
1. Consultation for Mommy Makeover
After you submit your request for information, you will take an online consultation to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for the mommy makeover surgery. During this consultation, your complaints will be learned in detail and you will be asked if you have had any current health condition or any surgery that you have experienced before. Any information that affects the evaluation process will be useful at this stage, for us to define your case and prepare a customized treatment plan for you.
2. Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

3. Final Consultation with Your Surgeon
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon who performs your mommy makeover surgery. Everything about your surgery will be discussed and decided by you and your surgeon during this consultation. The surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and goals better and also make you understand what you should expect from your surgery and the potential risks or complications of the procedure. You will also plan an individualized surgical and recovery plan that can be followed, especially during the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. At this stage, you need to find the answers to all the questions you have in mind. The surgeon will explain the whole process clearly and try to simulate the results as much as possible, in order you to feel comfortable and ready.
4. Medical Examinations
Before the surgery begins, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for this combined surgery. The surgeon will determine all the measurements and body drawings with the help of computer-based tools. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery and if any risk detected, surgeons try to eliminate them first.
Mommy makeover is not a procedure, it is a combination of different cosmetic procedures. The first step is to get in touch with your surgeon and decide on the procedures to follow. There are some options that you can consider in this regard:
What Should I Expect from Mommy Makeover?
Since Mommy makeover is not a single procedure, you should follow the recovery and aftercare instructions of the procedures to be performed according to your needs.
Whether you wear a special garment, how long you take a break from sportive activities, or in what position you can sleep depends entirely on which procedure you will enter. Don't worry, your doctor and clinic will inform you in the most detailed way about postoperative care and what to expect.
Things You Should Consider Before Mommy Makeover Surgery
Is Mommy Makeover Procedure Painful?
Due to the general anesthesia, you will not feel any pain during the procedure but, to relieve possible postoperative pain, your doctor will prescribe you pain medication.
How Soon After Childbirth Can I Undergo Mommy Makeover?
First of all, this should not be considered an emergency. Rest time is essential after childbirth to allow the tissues to return to normal. The skin, mammary gland, perineum, and muscles need to recover. A minimum of 6 months waiting period before considering a mommy makeover is a good decision. It should be longer if you are breastfeeding your child. And it should be much longer if you consider another pregnancy.
Can I Get Pregnant Again After Mommy Makeover?
The answer is yes; however, it is wise to plan your future pregnancies well. It is not recommended to be pregnant too quickly after a tummy tuck or breast augmentation surgery.
