What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgical procedures that can help someone reclaim their bodies after they have finished having children. The particular combination of procedures you receive will depend on your unique aesthetic goals, and can address multiple areas of the body, even the face!

What to expect for your mommy makeover procedure

Your first visit

At CAPS, the satisfaction of our patients is our priority. That’s why we place a great deal of importance on your consultation. The goal of the consultation is to determine if a tummy tuck is right for you. During your consultation, your doctor will ask you several questions including:

  • Why do you want a mommy makeover?

  • What are your expectations for the procedure?

  • What is your desired outcome?

  • Do you have any drug allergies?

  • What previous medical treatments have you received?

  • Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?

  • Do you plan to become pregnant in the future?

  • Are you currently at a stable weight?

In addition to asking these questions, your plastic surgeon will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your mommy makeover options, take photographs for your medical record, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of the procedures you will receive and any risks or potential complications, and answer any questions you may have.

The procedure

Before your mommy makeover, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.

We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.

At the time of your procedure, you will be administered anesthesia. Then, your skilled plastic surgeon and well-trained staff perform the procedure. The exact procedures will vary depending on your unique needs and desired outcomes. Your doctor can walk you through every step of the procedure during your consultation.

After the procedure

Your doctor will give you instructions regarding your post-operative care. Following these instructions is absolutely vital for the success of your surgery. These instructions will include ensuring that your surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during your recovery. Your doctor will also instruct you regarding the proper care of the surgical site, the use of medications to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, and your overall follow-up care.

Frequently asked questions


Do you lose weight after a mommy makeover?
  • While a mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure, you may lose weight since excess fat may be removed during liposuction and/or a tummy tuck. Your doctor will be able to answer all your questions tailored to you and your body. You can get more information by scheduling a consultation today.

How do you sleep after a mommy makeover?

This will be determined by the procedures that are done for your mommy makeover. Your surgeon and their team will give you unique instructions for your sleeping after your procedures.

How long is a mommy makeover surgery?

The length of your surgery depends on the surgical procedures that have been decided on by you and your doctor. Most mommy makeover procedures last 2 to 5 hours.

How much does the mommy makeover cost?

The cost of a mommy makeover is determined by the combination of procedures you’re interested in. If you come in for a consultation, one of our plastic surgeons will be happy to discuss your needs, provide a recommendation, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with an exact quote!

What does the mommy makeover consist of?

Mommy makeovers are a combination of at least two surgical procedures designed specifically for you. The most common procedures that can be part of a mommy makeover include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

What is the recovery time for mommy makeover?

Typically, your CAPS plastic surgeon can perform multiple procedures at the same time, which consolidates your downtime and recovery. Recovery from a mommy makeover can require anywhere from two days to three weeks of downtime after the surgery. You may also need to avoid heavy lifting depending on what procedures are being performed.

When is the best time to get a mommy makeover

The best time to get a mommy makeover is once you are certain you’re done having kids and, ideally, after you’re done breastfeeding. Ideal candidates are at a healthy, stable weight, have realistic expectations about their outcomes, and can take two days to three weeks off to recover, keeping in mind that it might be several months before you’ll see final results.
