A mommy makeover is a highly customized combination of procedures and surgeries dedicated to helping Moms improve their figure and reverse the toll childbearing takes on the body.
Many women opt for a mommy makeover because it is overall less expensive and more convenient to have several surgeries at once instead of having them separately. Giving birth to children brings about many changes in your life, but one that you might not anticipate is the permanent change to your body. Having a child is a very rewarding experience, but that’s not to say it’s not without its challenges and surprises. When you get pregnant and eventually give birth, your body needs to change to adapt to carrying a growing child.
The processes of pregnancy and childbearing often result in several changes, some of which include flatter breasts, saggier breasts, larger breasts and hips, more fat in certain areas, stretch marks, and excessive skin on your abdomen, leaving you feeling like a stranger in your own body. These changes can come as an unwelcome or unforeseen surprise, especially if your body has remained slim, small, or tight for most of your life. Such drastic body changes can result in lower self-esteem and confidence. A mommy makeover can help you regain control over your body image.
Your surgeon at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center sits down with you during a consultation to examine your body and discuss specific goals for your surgery. Then, they help you choose from a menu of specific surgeries to add to your mommy makeover and customize it specifically for you. As a result, they can perform multiple procedures in a single surgical session for reduced healing time and dramatic results. Your mommy makeover can include the following.
Breast surgeries like breast augmentation or a breast lift can make your breasts perkier, fuller, or firmer. You can also make your breasts more symmetrical if one loses more volume than the other after breastfeeding. If you choose breast augmentation, your surgeon helps you select implants that look and feel natural.Learn More
Liposuction is a fat removal surgery you can get on your chin and neck, thighs, hips, abdomen, and other areas that accumulate fat. You can use the fat removed during your liposuction procedure to enhance your buttocks with a Brazilian butt lift or to improve your facial contours.Learn More
A tummy tuck tightens the skin and muscles on your belly, which often stretch beyond repair during a pregnancy. Your surgeon can strategically remove or conceal lower abdominal stretch marks during your tummy tuck.Learn More
While planning your mommy makeover, your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center surgeon uses the VECTRA® 3D imaging system which is a simulator to help you visualize your results before they become reality.
Using the system, you can test different implant sizes and view the possible results of various procedures to make informed decisions for your surgery. To use the VECTRA 3D system, your surgeon takes pictures of you at many different angles for a complete view of your body. They then convert the images into a digital 3D model that they can manipulate and use to make precise measurements. With this system, you can feel confident in the decisions you make regarding your mommy makeover.
Since your Mommy Makeover is curated just for you, procedures can happen in a variety of ways. Oftentimes, patients decide to have their abdomen and breast surgeries done first before bringing in other procedures.
Because there’s a combination of procedures, the length of time for your surgery can last several hours, so be prepared to spend the entire day at our in-house, state-of-the-art surgery center. While this is generally considered outpatient surgery, it’s possible you may need to stay overnight if you’re in need of extra assistance. When your surgery begins, your doctor will place you under sedation or general anesthesia. Once you are completely sedated, the doctor will then complete each of the surgeries you elected to have. Once they are complete, the incisions will be stitched closed and dressed.
After the surgery is finished, our expert nursing staff will monitor you in our in-house, private recovery room to give you time to come out of sedation. At the same time, you will be monitored to ensure that there is no excessive bleeding or any other complications, such as excessive swelling.
Although some results will be immediately noticeable, such as breast augmentation, your final results can take several months to become fully visible.
This is partly from swelling, which can take a while to heal, and redness from scars. Results can also vary depending on your level of activity and care after your procedure. It’s important to carefully follow all doctor instructions to ensure the most successful results possible. More than anything, patients report feeling a boost of confidence and self-esteem after their mommy makeover and find the recovery time worth the results.

If you’ve been through childbirth and breastfeeding or had another lifestyle change that’s significantly affected your body, you may want to combine a series of cosmetic procedures such as a tummy tuck and breast reconstruction in order to boost your self-confidence and pride in your appearance. A Mommy Makeover at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center can restore your confidence and give you the body you’ve been missing.
Once you wake up, you will likely be in some discomfort, from swelling, bruising, and/or your new implants. For the following few days, there will be mild levels of pain which can generally be managed through over-the-counter medication. If you feel you need something stronger, the doctor can prescribe pain medication for you.
If you’re Mommy Makeover includes a tummy tuck - which many do - then you will need to avoid heavy lifting. This includes any child, pet, work equipment, or household items over ten pounds. You will also need to avoid strenuous exercise, as you will feel quite tender. It’s important to make sure you have help with work responsibilities, housework, chores, or childcare as well so as to ensure your stitches continue to heal successfully.
Depending on which procedure(s) you have done, some scarring is possible. Any time there is an incision, a scar will result. However, the expert plastic surgeons at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center will carefully place any incision to minimize its visibility or hide it completely, such as in a breast crease or underarm. Scars will also fade over time.
Because a Mommy Makeover is a general term for several different customized surgical procedures, the cost will vary from person to person. Many women opt for a mommy makeover because it is less expensive and more convenient to have several surgeries at once instead of having them separately. As this is typically an elective surgery, you will likely have to pay out of pocket. There are financing and payment options available through Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center. Be sure to ask our Patient Coordinator for details during your consultation.
If you’re interested in undergoing any or all of the procedures in a Mommy Makeover, the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center requires that you first meet for a consultation with our Patient Coordinator to establish your eligibility and build a customized plan for your body.
