Best Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Many women find even the most diligent diet and exercise program cannot correct post-pregnancy concerns such as sagging breasts, excess skin and fat deposits in areas such as the hips.
Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are women who are healthy, at a stable weight and want to correct post-pregnancy concerns such as excess fat, sagging skin, muscle laxity and lost breast volume.
This procedure also can be ideal for busy moms who want to achieve their cosmetic goals without the downtime required for separate staged procedures. Women should wait to have surgery until they are finished having children. Pregnancy and breastfeeding after your mommy makeover can undo your overall results and may require revision surgery.
It’s important to have realistic goals about which procedures can be combined, and your surgeon can help you understand which treatments are appropriate for your needs.

Mommy Makeover Options
- Remove excess fat and tighten sagging skin and lax muscles with a tummy tuck or body lift
- Improve the shape and volume of the breasts through breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a breast lift
- Sculpt the waist, hips or thighs with liposuction
- Enhance the curves of your buttocks with a Brazilian butt lift
Prior to your procedure, you will schedule a consultation at The Natural Result / Center for Aesthetic Artistry. This consultation is designed as a forum for you and your surgeon to discuss your specific areas of concern and cosmetic goals. In addition, you will learn about your options. For example, if you are interested in liposuction and breast augmentation, your doctor will explain the different types of liposuction and also discuss options such as breast implant type.
During your consultation, you and your surgeon will determine together which procedures should be used to achieve the results you desire.
Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover
The time required for your mommy makeover depends on which procedures you’ll have performed. After your consultation and before your surgery, your doctor can give you a more specific timeline to help you best prepare. Mommy makeovers are performed as outpatient procedures, so you can plan on heading home later the same day as your surgery.
