If you are a new mom and have given birth recently, you have likely noticed many changes in your body that make you feel uncomfortable. You may have gained weight, developed sagging skin, and experienced changes in breast shape and size.

New mothers in this situation deserve a mommy makeover. This is a comprehensive treatment specifically meant to fix all these new changes and help moms look and feel better.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Involve?

A mommy makeover is a bouquet of cosmetic methods meant for a woman who has been through pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding and now wants to restore her body. It addresses the issues of deflated breasts, sagging skin, excess fat in several areas, loose skin on the abdomen, sagging abdominal muscles, and thin lips.

A number of procedures can be included in a mommy makeover.

Breast Augmentation

After breastfeeding, patients may notice that their breasts have a deflated appearance due to the loss of volume. Breast augmentation is a procedure used to increase the size of the breasts, restoring them to their former appearance (or even larger if requested). Breasts that look smaller and have lost volume can be made to appear fuller through this process.

To increase the size of the breasts, breast implants can be used or fat can be transferred from another part of the patient’s body. In the case of fat transfer, liposuction is first used to harvest this fat, which is then purified and injected into the breasts in key regions.

Tummy Tuck

The most common problem new moms face is an abdomen that is completely out of shape. After nine months of pregnancy, delivery results in sagging skin, which is not improved in the months after. The end result can be stubborn fat and loose skin on the abdomen. Additionally, diastasis recti can occur, a condition in which the abdominal muscles separate and sag.

The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a helpful procedure that can be used to remove excess fat and skin, rejoin and tighten the abdominal muscles, and remove stretch marks. It helps mothers get a flat abdomen like the one they had before becoming pregnant.


Hormonal changes and the need to eat for two can lead to the accumulation of fat on various parts of the body, including the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. A mommy makeover utilizes liposuction to remove this excess fat.

Liposuction makes use of small incisions, into which a cannula is inserted. The excess fatty tissue is loosened and then suctioned out through the cannula. This helps to create a more toned and sculpted body.

Lip Augmentation

The body isn’t the only thing affected by pregnancy. The entire process can be extremely stressful, and this stress can show in a person’s skin and face. Perioral lines may form around the lips, and the lines may look thinner, drooping, and poorly defined.

To correct these issues, lip augmentation can be used. Volbella from Juvederm is a minimally invasive dermal filler that is injected to add volume to the lips, create better definition, and smooth away perioral lines.
