What is a Mommy Makeover?

The mommy makeover combines body contouring procedures such as arm lift, thigh lift, and liposuction surgeries with cosmetic breast surgery to create an improved overall physical appearance — all at the same time. A mommy makeover can address:

  • Loose or sagging skin on the abdomen
  • Stubborn love handles and fat left over from pregnancy
  • Drooping breasts that have lost volume
  • Abdominal bulge
  • Separated or weak abdominal muscles
  • Stretch marks

Mommy Makeover Procedure Details

All mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. Depending on how many techniques are combined, the surgery could last multiple hours. It is common for patients to have a short hospital stay with this surgery. Most women will require a full month to recover, but many will be able to return to work within two weeks.

Before & After

The Mommy Makeover: Customized to Meet Your Needs

One of the best things about the mommy makeover procedure is that it can be uniquely tailored to your specific needs and goals, depending on what body parts you want to improve. In most cases, surgery for the breasts and tummy are performed together (though not always). The conditions addressed during surgery and the surgical technique used will vary.



  • Conditions caused by pregnancy: Excess fat and/or persistent bulge in the abdomen; sagging and loose skin; stretch marks, and other unsightly skin irregularities
  • Surgeries to consider: Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction of the abdomen

Lower Body

  • Conditions caused by pregnancy: Sagging skin and excess fat in the buttocks, hips, and thighs
  • Surgeries to consider: Lower body lift including liposuction and skin tightening of the buttocks, hips, and thighs

“So happy I chose Dr. Hickman! After having my 4th child, I was eager to have a mommy makeover to fix what multiple pregnancies had left me with. Dr. Hollie Hickman was my second consultation. After meeting with her, I immediately knew she was the one, and booked my surgery that same day. She is a true professional and I felt very comfortable in her care. ”

Is a mommy makeover safe?

There are always risks to consider when thinking about surgery. When different procedures are combined, those risks can increase; therefore, it’s important to find an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in performing multiple procedures in one setting. Ultimately, a combination procedure can have numerous benefits, including only having to undergo surgery once — which means only one recovery and one fee.

What happens if I get pregnant?

In a perfect world, women would wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur.


Results from a mommy makeover will reveal themselves in multiple stages as the breast implants settle into their natural placement and the incisions begin to heal. It generally takes a full year for all of the changes from a mommy makeover to become finalized.  

If stretch marks exist on an area of your body (i.e. breast, tummy, etc.) that’s going to be lifted and tightened, these marks may be removed when the excess skin is trimmed away.

For any stretch marks left behind — as well as any other skin irregularities that may exist — there are skin rejuvenating techniques that can help fade and remove these imperfections.

Scarring will occur with almost any cosmetic procedure. However, every effort is made to place and close the incisions carefully so that scarring is minimized. Scarring eventually fades into faint lines and can be concealed by undergarments and bathing suits. Most patients feel that the physical results following a mommy makeover far outweigh the scarring that is left behind.
