Mommy Makeover Q & A

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy and childbirth can cause unwanted changes to your body that don’t improve on their own, even with proper diet and exercise. Mommy Makeovers are a collection of cosmetic surgical procedures that enhance or correct areas of your body that have changed appearance, shape, or alignment during pregnancy.

These procedures can help restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance, or in some cases even make your body look better than it did before you became pregnant. Mommy Makeover procedures primarily focus on restoring the appearance of your breasts, buttocks, waist, and abdomen. The procedures can:

  • Eliminate stubborn fat
  • Improve breast symmetry
  • Lift and add volume to your breasts
  • Repair stretched or large nipples and areolas
  • Tighten or remove sagging abdominal skin
  • Tighten and repair stretched or separated abdominal muscles

A Mommy Makeover may be right for you if you’re in good health, have reached your ideal weight, are not breastfeeding, and don’t plan on having more children in the future.

What procedures are included in a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers include a variety of procedures that can lift, reshape, and tighten specific areas of your body. Surgical procedures can provide permanent results and nonsurgical techniques offer a noninvasive alternative that enhances your body’s appearance for a shorter period with less dramatic results.

Multiple surgical and nonsurgical procedures can be performed. The procedures included in your Mommy Makeover may be different than what’s included in someone else’s. Dr. Ditto works closely with you to determine which cosmetic procedures can best address your specific problem areas.

Procedures that may typically be part of a Mommy Makeover include, but are not limited to:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Injectables, such as Botox® and dermal fillers
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Skin tightening and resurfacing treatments

What results can be expected from a Mommy Makeover?

Recovery time may vary depending on the procedures. You can expect swelling and soreness, and Dr. Ditto may suggest that you restrict your movement while you heal.

Most often, Mommy Makeover results begin to show immediately and will continue to improve for several months after the procedures are over. Scarring that has occurred as a result of the procedure will fade over time, and your body will take on a more contoured shape.
