Get your body and confidence back after childbirth
Having children can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a woman’s life, however, pregnancy and breastfeeding can have a major impact on the body. These unwanted changes can affect many areas including the abdomen and breasts and it can be difficult to bounce back with diet and exercise alone. With a mommy makeover, patients can restore their pre-pregnancy figure in one procedure.
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that the patient chooses and customizes to restore their body after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover can include virtually any procedure the patient wants, but typically involves those that address the abdomen and breasts including:
- Tummy tuck – to tighten stretched tissue, reposition the belly button, and remove excess skin.
- Breast augmentation – to restore volume loss after breastfeeding.
- Breast reduction – to resize breasts that became enlarged after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Breast lift – to address sagging from volume loss after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Liposuction – to remove stubborn fat and optimize contouring procedures.
Candidates for the mommy makeover are those who experience unwanted changes due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Patients can choose the mommy makeover for full-body recontouring, saving on money and recovery time when having the procedures performed at once. Successful candidates are those who are done having children, as a future pregnancy could reverse the results of the mommy makeover. Patients should also be in good physical and mental health in order to undergo the procedure.
Like the procedure itself, the recovery process will differ from patient to patient depending on the chosen procedures and techniques. Patients can expect about 2-3 weeks of recovery time. This will involve time off work to rest and recover as well as activity and exercise restrictions. Swelling and discomfort can be expected for the first several days and can be managed with a prescription pain medication from Dr. Berman.
Once swelling has diminished and the healing process is complete, patients can enjoy the result of their mommy makeover with restored breast size, a toned abdominal, and more. The results are long lasting as long as patients avoid a future pregnancy or dramatic weight gain.

The cost of a mommy makeover varies by factors including the specific procedures you choose or the geographic location where you have your surgery.
A mommy makeover can include a breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck,) liposuction, labiaplasty, and more. You can choose as many or as few of these separate procedures as you wish, depending on the areas of the body you wish to address.
A mommy makeover will not affect your ability to conceive or give birth. However, it’s best to wait until you are done having children before choosing a mommy makeover procedure.
