The Mommy Makeover: Not Just for Mommies

A woman holds a finger in front of her mouth to signal that she has a secret about the benefits of a mommy makeover.

Even though the word “mommy” is in the name, Mommy Makeovers aren’t just for women with kids. This combination of procedures is great for any patient who has undergone significant weight loss or other significant changes to their body.

If you’re interested in lifting and contouring your body with a single surgery, a mommy makeover at our Baltimore practice can create transformative results. With customizable procedures and high patient satisfaction ratings, it can help bring back a toned, more youthful version of your body.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of popular procedures that are used to slim, lift, and contour the body. A handful of procedures are commonly included, such as:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift

Together with your doctor, you can pick and choose which procedures will best help you achieve your body goals. Treatments like tummy tuck and liposuction can help tone your stomach and remove excess skin. Breast augmentation and a breast lift can add volume elevate the breasts to a more youthful position.

Mommy makeovers are also popular because combining multiple procedures creates a more dramatic result. You have to go under general anesthesia only once and plan for only a single recovery.

Who Is a Mommy Makeover Candidate?

Like most surgeries, you will want to be in good overall health before heading into the operating room. You should be at a stable weight and avoid habits such as smoking. Women who have never had children choose to get Mommy Makeover surgery because they have lost significant weight or because aging has taken a toll on their abdomens and breasts. Women who have had children should not be planning to get pregnant in the future. Having additional children after the procedure can undo surgery results.

It is important to remember that a Mommy Makeover isn’t a substitute for weight loss. Leading a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and watching what you eat is the best way to maintain the results of your surgery.

What Is Recovery Like?

A major perk of the Mommy Makeover is that, by combining multiple procedures into a single operation, you only have to experience one recovery time. The length of your recovery will depend on which procedures you select and how extensive they are. In general, you’ll need 2 to 4 weeks of downtime and up to 3 months to fully recover.

A good support system is necessary with a mommy makeover, as after surgery you will have limited movement and range of motion. Organizing chores, childcare, and transportation ahead of time will help your healing process go as smoothly as possible.

Mommy makeovers are very transformative and are excellent for a wide variety of people. As 97% of people on RealSelf.com agree, it can help you regain your old body and feel more confident.
