Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can take major tolls on a woman’s body, and sometimes lead to pockets of loose, sagging skin that won’t go away or improve with diet and exercise. Your tummy may seem rounder and less taut, while your breasts may have lost volume and appear deflated. No matter the physical changes you’ve been through in becoming a mom, you can restore your shape and figure through a cosmetic procedure known as a mommy makeover.

A mommy makeover is a combination of two or more cosmetic surgery procedures that can enhance your natural look and have you feeling great about your body again. Here are common cosmetic procedures most women consider when having a mommy makeover.
Breast lift can restore breast volume
Throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding your breasts can fluctuate in size due to hormonal changes and milk supply. Some women may find that their breasts become flatter and more deflated in the years after breastfeeding. Breast lift surgery can help restore breast volume and firmness, and reshape breasts so they appear rounder, perkier, and more youthful-looking.
Breast augmentation can help you get your curves back
When breasts reduce in size following pregnancy and breastfeeding, some women find that they miss having larger, voluminous breasts, and opt for breast augmentation. Breast augmentation helps increase or enhance the size of your breasts, and allows you to feel more confident about your overall appearance. Consider combining breast lift surgery with breast augmentation to give your chest a well-deserved makeover.
Liposuction can help shape your body
Pregnancy can sometimes leave small pockets of fat on various areas of your body that stays put no matter how much you exercise. Liposuction targets and removes these small pockets of fat to enhance your natural contours and shape. For instance, if you’re battling pockets of excess fat on your abdomen and hips following childbirth, liposuction can help improve these areas.
Tummy tuck can smooth your abdominal region
If your abdominal region contains excess skin and fat following pregnancy, consider making tummy tuck surgery part of your mommy makeover. This procedure involves the removal of excess fat and skin from your tummy region, combined with the tightening of your abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck surgery can also benefit moms who suffer from diastasis recti, which is the separation of abdominal muscles during pregnancy and childbirth.
Arm reduction can remove loose skin
Women who gain excess weight during pregnancy and lose most of it after childbirth may find that they have loose, excess skin in their upper arms. The skin on your upper arms can sometimes appear flabby if you gain and lose weight rapidly within a short period of time. Arm reduction surgery is when this excess skin and fat is removed, and the underlying muscles are tightened to produce a more toned, svelte look.
Thigh lift can address excess skin in your upper legs
Just like with arm reduction surgery, thigh lift surgery addresses excess, sagging skin in your upper legs that can’t be corrected through regular exercise and good nutrition. Thigh lift surgery involves removing small pockets of fat in your upper legs and reshaping your thighs to achieve a better-proportioned lower body and contours.
If you’re done having children and feel that your confidence and physical appearance need a boost and makeover, consider mommy makeover surgery. At the time of your initial consultation, discuss your goals with your cosmetic surgeon and choose two or more procedures that will benefit you the most. If you’re not sure which cosmetic procedures can help enhance your look, your plastic surgeon will make professional, educated recommendations based on what you hope to achieve.
