Why Breast Augmentation Is a Perfect Match for the Mommy Makeover

The mommy makeover is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries every year. One of its biggest perks is that a mommy makeover lets you combine multiple procedures into one surgery. That means one anesthesia, one recovery and one waiting period before being able to enjoy your complete results. While this benefit might have drawn you to choose a mommy makeover vs. a single body contouring procedure, you might be a bit stuck on what to include.

So what does a mommy makeover consist of, anyway? That’s the beauty of it — you can pick and choose which procedures are best for you. Here, we outline a few of the most common.

Breast Augmentation/Breast Lift

Following pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, a lot of changes happen to a woman’s body. Unfortunately, some of those changes include not-so-welcome things like drooping, deflated breasts. This is one of the top reasons why so many women choose to include breast enhancement in their mommy makeover.

Depending on your goals, you may want to add both breast implants and a breast lift to your mommy makeover, or choose one or the other. Breast augmentation will give you a fuller look and feel, while a breast lift will help to restore a perkier and more youthful breast position.

Tummy Tuck

Some women include breast implants with their mommy makeover to correct asymmetry.

A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, might be one of the first procedures that come to mind when you think of a mommy makeover. Many women have trouble tightening and toning their stomach area after pregnancy, whether that’s due to muscle separation called diastasis recti or loose skin that’s impossible to get rid through exercise.

A skilled cosmetic surgeon can both repair separated muscles and remove excess skin during a tummy tuck, leaving you with a sleeker and more toned physique.


Most women who include a tummy tuck in their mommy makeover also choose to add liposuction. While a tummy tuck can very nicely address weakened abdominal muscles and skin laxity, liposuction can enhance those results by also removing stubborn fat that doesn’t seem to respond to exercise. For this reason, abdominoplasty and liposuction often go hand in hand.

But liposuction doesn’t have to be limited to just your belly area. Your cosmetic surgeon may also be able to remove unwanted fat in other areas as well, such as your hips, thighs, back and upper arms.

Other Mommy Makeover Add-Ons

Breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction are the three biggies when it comes to what a mommy makeover consists of. But those are by no means the only procedures you can include. Some women also want to add these procedures:

  • Brazilian butt lift. This procedure uses unwanted fat from another area of your body to add volume and shape to your butt.
  • Arm/thigh lift. If loose skin on your arms or thighs is a concern for you, talk to your cosmetic surgeon about including an arm or thigh lift as part of your mommy makeover.
  • Nonsurgical treatments. Some nonsurgical treatments like Zerona® fat reduction, the Silhouette Instalift™ and others can complement your mommy makeover results.

There is a limit to how long your mommy makeover surgery can be and how many treatments you can safely and effectively wrap into one. During your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your needs and goals with your cosmetic surgeon to figure out an appropriate surgical plan and timeline for your completely customized mommy makeover.
