Many of us have heard the term “mommy makeover” on television or in a magazine, but many do not know what that actually means.  Does that involve surgery? Is it non-surgical and non-invasive? What is done and am I candidate?

A “mommy makeover” generally refers to a combination of procedure to improve the appearance of the breasts and abdominal regions.  For the abdomen, this would be referred to as an abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck.   For the breasts, this may refer to a breast lift with or without implants.  These procedures may also be combined with liposuction for further body contouring.

These procedures are performed for women who want an improved figure after having children. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can take a serious toll on a woman’s body, and many moms find that no amount of diet and exercise can restore their pre-baby figures.  Following childbirth, many women notice their breasts sagging as they had been stretched during pregnancy and now they have lost volume and have descended.  Also, these patients have noticed an abdominal bulge from weakening of the abdominal muscles and excess abdominal skin from this skin being stretched during pregnancy.  A mommy makeover aims to correct these conditions and help restore your pre-pregnancy figure.

Thanks for your question.  The price varies from surgeon to surgeon and among different regions of the country.  So it is hard to give you a price here.  However, when you combine more than one operation you will usually receive a savings on the whole package and operating room costs.
The best way to get a price and to see if that will fit into your budget is to make an appointment to see a plastic surgeon to discuss what may be best for you.
