Pregnancy and childbirth place a great deal of anatomic strain on a woman’s body. Many areas, such as the breasts, hips, and abdomen may not return to their pre-pregnancy shape even with a healthy diet and exercise. To correct many pregnancy-related cosmetic concerns, I offer a popular option called a Mommy Makeover. This procedure combines surgeries such as breast enhancement and tummy tuck for Downer’s Grove, IL, women who want to restore their bodies after childbearing.
In this blog post, I’ll review what a Mommy Makeover entails, who the best candidates are, and what you need to know as you move forward.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover generally involves some combination of breast enhancement, liposuction, and tummy tuck. Depending on the patient, a Mommy Makeover may include additional procedures. At my practice, I will personalize the surgical treatment plan to also include facial sculpting procedures such as facelift or brow lift should the patient desire them. Some women also take advantage of our non-surgical skin care options like BOTOX® Cosmetic or injectable fillers as part of their total rejuvenation.

Mommy Makeover: Not Just for Moms
Although the procedure is called a Mommy Makeover, it can truly benefit women of all ages. This includes women in need of more comprehensive aesthetic enhancements, such as those who have experienced significant weight fluctuations or women who would simply benefit from consolidating procedures.
A major benefit of combining multiple procedures into one surgery is that you can experience the recovery periods all at once, rather than going through additional weeks of recovery after each separate procedure. You may also save money by only paying one round of associated fees rather than a new set with each visit to the surgical suite.
Choosing a Mommy Makeover Surgeon
A combination surgery such as a Mommy Makeover requires the experience and skill of a board-certified plastic surgeon. They should be able to demonstrate their expertise in customizing Mommy Makeover surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck, using safe and advanced surgical techniques. It’s a good idea to view your surgeon’s results before making your final decision. To see my real patient Mommy Makeover results, please visit our before-and-after photo gallery.
