What Happens During the Mommy Makeover Surgery?Dr Rajat Gupta
The Mommy Makeover surgery entails a combination of different surgeries, each tailored to the patient’s preferences. A mommy makeover can include any combination of the following: Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Liposuction, and Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery. Traditionally, the standard Mommy Makeover entails a Tummy tuck and breast augmentation.
What happens during the Mommy makeover surgery?
A Mommy Makeover is tailored to each patient’s goals for her “makeover.” There are no hard and fast rules! And believe it or not, pregnancy is not even required to do these procedures – some women have body changes similar to pregnancy with significant weight loss or ageing.
If you have a mommy makeover, it will be personalised during your consultation to reflect your needs during your consultation. Not all women need to have all of the procedures that potentially make up a mommy makeover; some only need to have one or two of them. The only way to determine how many procedures you require is to talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon.

A Breast Lift and (optionally) Augmentation
Most women, especially women who are in their 30s or 40s, need to have a breast lift after giving birth. This is because the breasts expand and contract so dramatically during milk production. It’s not uncommon for a woman to go up several cup sizes, only to drop back down again once her baby is done breastfeeding. Because the skin must stretch to accommodate all of this milk, many women are eventually left with flatter, saggier breasts that require surgical lifting. Some women also notice that their breasts are smaller than they once were after breastfeeding is complete, making combined lift and augmentation surgery preferable.
If your nipples point “south” rather than “north,” then it’s almost certain that you need a breast lift. If they do not, but your breasts look less full than they used to, you may only need to have your breasts augmented. Inserting gel or saline implants into the breast pocket can restore the lost volume after milk production has ceased.
Liposuction (removing fat via a minimally-invasive tube instrument) is sometimes administered before tummy tuck surgery to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction can also be used to remove fat deposits in other body areas, not just the abdomen. If you have developed extra fat on your hips or thighs, it can be removed with liposuction, as some women do during pregnancy.
During tummy tuck surgery, a plastic surgeon will make a long incision along your bikini line, allowing them to “pull down” and tighten your skin and muscles. Sometimes, if upper abdominal tightening is needed as well, a second incision will be made near your belly button. In either case, your loose skin will be removed, and any muscle damage you have will be repaired. Additionally, if you suffer from stress urinary incontinence, you can ask your surgeon also to place a small mound of tissue near your bladder. This will help to regulate urine flow.
Ultimately, each Mommy Makeover performed is tailored to a woman’s body and her specific wishes for surgery, anatomy, and the realistically available downtime she has for recovery. When we meet new patients during the consultation, we detail their goals for their Mommy Makeover.
