The Mommy makeover is gaining popularity, thanks to celebrity transitions after becoming mothers, and to the advancement in medical technology. The use of invasive plastic surgery is not a new concept after pregnancy, but it has improved over the years and therefore giving mothers a chance to regain their body and confidence.

What is a mommy makeover

Professionals believe that mommy makeover is an all-inclusive process, whereby one starts preparing for the makeover during the pregnancy period and after the pregnancy. Celebrities are keen on hiring personal trainers during and after pregnancy to get their body back in shape, however, there are some concerns that can’t be improved despite diet and exercise. That’s where the mommy makeover procedure comes in.

Mommy makeover ideas

The following are some of the best procedures to include in the mommy makeover:

Breast Lift

After pregnancy and breastfeeding period, most mothers, especially those aged over 30 years, have enlarged breasts. Unlike other types of makeovers, there are no alternative makeover options apart from plastic surgeries. After the above process, many women have different views about their breasts — some find them smaller while others think they are saggy. Regardless of one’s perception, there are different surgical options available to re-correct the breasts size and look.

Breast Augmentation

Volume loss is a common concern after pregnancy and breastfeeding. With a breast augmentation with implants, this volume can be restored to achieve fuller, rounder, more symmetrical breasts. Breast implants alone can address some sagging, but for more severe sagging, talk with Dr. Shienbaum about combining the breast lift with your procedure.

Breast Reduction

For some women, the breasts never return to their natural size after pregnancy and breastfeeding. With a breast reduction, the breasts are made smaller, rounder, and more symmetrical. A lift is often performed at the same time to remove any excess skin.

Tummy Tuck

The abdomen is highly affected by pregnancy, stretching to make room for your baby. After childbirth, it can be nearly impossible to remove excess skin and tissue with exercise along. The tummy tuck can address this area to tighten the underlying tissue and remove excess skin to create a flat, toned abdomen.


Did you know that the fat around the body is removable through liposuction techniques? The process is a game-changer for removing love handles, especially where traditional methods — such as diet and exercising — are not applicable. Although the process is synonymous with reducing tummy fats, it is also applicable in other parts of the body such as hips and thighs. Before this procedure, it is advisable to work with a professional on the best liposuction approach, and which part of the body to start with, as opposed to starting with any part of the body.
