What Are My Mommy Makeover Options?

A Mommy Makeover refers to multiple breast/body procedures performed in a coordinated fashion to restore your pre-pregnancy figure or to simply reverse the anatomical changes resulting from pregnancy. This treatment plan is completely personalized to your unique needs and goals, and procedural options may include:

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty can repair musculature stretched out or weakened by the childbearing process, which often results in a belly “pooch” or an appearance of overhanging tissue. By tightening the underlying muscles and removing loose, excess skin, a tummy tuck can restore a slimmer, firmer, and smoother abdominal contour.

Breast Augmentation

A loss of volume, shape, and elasticity usually predominates the breasts after having children, leading to increased breast sag and/or deflated contours. Breast augmentation with implants is a popular way to resolve these concerns and reintroduce a rounder, fuller, and more youthful breast shape. SVIA offers a comprehensive array of different breast implant options to achieve your desired look.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery is frequently incorporated into a Mommy Makeover due to the breasts’ tendency to become pendulous, or “droop,” after pregnancy and breastfeeding. With mastopexy, the breasts are lifted and reshaped to minimize sag and restore younger-looking contours. Depending on your goals, the ultimate breast rejuvenation is often achieved by placing implants at the same time as breast lift surgery.


The accumulation of excess fat is also a common effect of pregnancy that can be notoriously difficult to eliminate with dieting and exercise alone. Liposuction is a minimally invasive option designed to gently suction out localized fat and smooth bulges such as “love handles,” “bra rolls,” “muffin tops,” and more. This fat removal technique can be performed under the chin or on virtually any region of the body.

How Is A Mommy Makeover Performed?

A Mommy Makeover is usually an outpatient procedure. Each procedure takes approximately 1.5 to 3 hours to complete, so multiple treatments can often be performed in the same surgery. General anesthesia will be administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist, requiring you to enlist a friend or loved one to drive you to and from the surgical facility. We also recommend having a nurse or aftercare provider available if your Mommy Makeover is extensive. Before your procedures, Dr. Tom Liu or Jerome Liu will demonstrate where your incisions will be placed so you can get an idea of potential scarring. All incisions are made as discreetly as possible to help ensure natural-looking results.


No two Mommy Makeovers are ever completely the same, therefore the nature of your recovery period will be similarly unique to your treatment plan. Your plastic surgeon will fully inform you of what you can expect with regard to aftercare and activity restrictions in person. While plenty of rest is essential to proper healing, Dr. Tom Liu and Dr. Jerome Liu encourage walking around as soon as you feel well enough to improve blood circulation and prevent blood clots. Patients generally require three to ten days of downtime depending on the procedures incorporated into their Mommy Makeover.

Your progress will be monitored in postoperative follow-up appointments. We also recommend enlisting help for childcare and household responsibilities so you can solely focus on healing. Strenuous activity and heavy lifting are prohibited for at least three to four weeks.A Mommy Makeover can be a powerful way to restore your pre-pregnancy body, resulting in enhanced contours and self-confidence.
