What Is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding all go together to create a beautiful and happy experience enjoyed by mothers. You wouldn’t change anything about your experience of motherhood – except for one thing: what it has done to your body.

Unfortunately, women everywhere are often dismayed by how pregnancy, the birthing process, and nursing have affected their bodies and self-confidence. When a healthy diet and rigorous exercise cannot address these issues, board-certified plastic surgeons in Fredericksburg, VA, are happy to offer their patients a mommy makeover.

Before pregnancy, you had a very different body; you were healthy and in great shape, felt confident, and even attracted admiring glances from passersby. You’ve made a lot of sacrifices for your children, which is normal and perfectly okay – but you would love to feel proud of your body again. You would love to look in that mirror and feel confident again. You want to be able to go into your closet again and fit into your best and favorite clothes.

Well, you can get that feeling again with a mommy makeover!

As offered by Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, a mommy makeover is a perfect solution to reversing the changes that take place in a mothers’ physique during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. With professional advice and guidance, you can restore your appearance and get back that toned and sexy physique.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of body contouring procedures specifically customized for each patient and generally performed together in a single session. The results can drastically reverse the physical effects that pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing have on a woman’s body.

As no two women experience pregnancy the same way, the doctor will ensure that each patient receives the custom-tailored treatment most appropriate for her. With the breasts and abdomen being most affected by motherhood, a mommy makeover will often center on a combination of breast and abdomen contouring, with additional procedures being added as needed.

What Could My Mommy Makeover Look Like?

A combination of breast surgery procedures and body contouring making up a mommy makeover is what many mothers seek to help reverse the effects of motherhood, and these are outlined below.

Breast Augmentation

With the help of breast implants, breast augmentation can restore breast volume lost after pregnancy, achieving fuller, more rounded breasts with improved symmetry, helping women regain their pre-pregnancy appearance.

Breast Lift

Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift restores the breasts to a firm, full appearance by removing excess skin, reshaping, and tightening the surrounding tissue to support the breasts’ new contours.

Breast Reduction

Reduction mammoplasty is a breast reduction procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin, providing breasts that are better shaped and more in proportion to the rest of the body.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin, offering immediate results and dramatically reducing the appearance of a protruding abdomen. In many cases, a tummy tuck restores muscles that have become weakened, separated, or stretched during pregnancy, giving the patient a smoother and firmer abdominal profile. The treatment provides long-lasting benefits for patients who stay fit and maintain their weight.


By slimming and reshaping targeted areas of the body, liposuction removes stubborn pockets of fat and improves body contours and proportions, permanently creating more balanced proportions and eliminating unsightly bulges.


Labiaplasty, also known as labia reduction surgery, reduces the protrusion of the labia and, if present, corrects asymmetry and makes the labia more aesthetically pleasing while reducing the irritation caused by clothing.

Thigh Lift

thigh lift procedure eliminates excess skin and pockets of fat from the buttocks, hips, and inner/outer thighs resulting from massive weight loss, particularly in women. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining tissue is lifted. Liposuction is sometimes employed to eliminate fatty deposits and create slimmer contours.

Buttock Lift

Also known as a “Brazilian Butt Lift,” a buttock lift uses fat from other parts of the body to enhance the buttocks. A buttock lift creates larger, enhanced buttocks while shaping and contouring the other areas of the body from where the fat is harvested through liposuction. The procedure is especially popular in those wanting to correct flat or sagging buttocks or after weight loss to reshape and enhance the buttocks.
