The Ultimate Guide to a Mommy Makeover

*model-not an actual patient

The term mommy makeover was originally coined to designate a combination of procedures designed to address aesthetic concerns in the areas impacted by pregnancy and childbirth. However, this surgery is ideal for anyone interested in multiple cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate their figure.

Most mommy makeovers combine liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast procedure, but there are a variety of combinations to choose from. When deciding on the right one for you, your surgeon will consider your goals and create a unique plan for you.

If you’re interested in a mommy makeover, keep reading to learn more about this procedure.


A mommy makeover can include breast surgery (reduction, lift, augmentation, implants), tummy tuck, contouring, butt lift, or arm lift. However, the treatments will be based on the patient’s individual preferences and overall health. It’s important to work with a team that can help you determine which procedures are right for you so you can feel as confident as possible before you take the first step of your journey.


After childbirth, we recommend women wait at least a year before having a procedure. Furthermore, candidates for a mommy makeover should be in generally good health. Those with pre-existing health conditions may not be eligible as they could pose risks during the procedure and impair recovery. We also recommend that you wait until after your final child, as pregnancy could impact your results.


Recovery from a mommy makeover typically lasts six to eight weeks but may vary from person to person. At the practice of Eric S. Schaffer, M.D., F.A.C.S., our team will work to reduce the recovery time by combining procedures. Developing a comprehensive plan at the beginning makes it easier to streamline the makeover and soften the impact on the patient’s body.
