What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover refers to an operation that treats the changes associated with pregnancy. Therefore, your mommy makeover addresses the changes you want to reverse post pregnancies. For many women, a mommy makeover involves aesthetic breast surgery, a breast lift and/or breast implants, and a tummy tuck, usually with some liposuction. However, your mommy makeover is whatever you want it to be.
Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?

Recovery and results
The recovery varies depending on the procedures chosen. However, a mommy makeover is generally performed as a day surgery procedure; although some patients spend one night after surgery in the surgery center or hospital. Patients are up and walking the evening of surgery. Most patients will need assistance around the house for one to two weeks after the procedure; mothers who also work outside of the home, typically return to work two to three weeks after the procedure. Patients are asked to avoid strenuous activities and exercise for up to six weeks after the procedure.
