What is a mommy makeover?

Mommy makeover surgery is a custom combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures performed at the same time. Although the procedure corrects the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding on a woman’s body, you don’t have to be a mom to have a mommy makeover. By having procedures performed together, you can improve multiple areas with a single surgery and recovery period.

What is typically included in a mommy makeover?

Your mommy makeover is customized to your physical characteristics and cosmetic goals. Here are some of the more popular components of a mommy makeover:

  • Tummy tuck tightens lax abdominal skin and repairs separated muscles (diastasis recti).
  • Liposuction removes pockets of fat from the belly, waist, hips, thighs, and more.
  • Breast enhancement surgeries such as breast augmentation, a breast lift, and breast reduction improve breast and areola size and shape.
  • Labiaplasty reduces and reshapes enlarged inner labia (labia minora) that can cause physical and emotional discomfort.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Pham will meet with you to discuss the changes you have in mind, perform a physical exam, and customize a surgical plan to your needs. He will ensure the combination of procedures you want is safe for a single surgery. You will have plenty of time to ask questions and address your concerns.

What happens during mommy makeover surgery?

Dr. Pham performs mommy makeover procedures using a general anesthetic. Depending on the combination of procedures and your preference, you can go home on the day of surgery or stay overnight in a nearby hospital. The length of surgery typically ranges from 3 to 6 hours, depending on the specifics of your mommy makeover. After surgery, Dr. Pham will place you in a supportive surgical bra and apply compression wraps to treated areas.

How long does it take to heal from a mommy makeover?

Depending on your procedures and individual factors, you will need about 2 to 4 weeks of downtime after mommy makeover surgery. Tummy tuck surgery has the most significant recovery; however, Dr. Pham administers a pain medication called EXPAREL® during surgery that controls pain for the first few days when it’s needed most.

Recovery Timeline

Here is a general timeline of mommy makeover recovery milestones:

  • Sutures removed: 7 to 10 days
  • Bruising fades: 2 to 3 weeks
  • Walking upright becomes easier: 2+ weeks
  • Return to work and nonstrenuous activities: 2 to 4 weeks
  • Allowed to stop wearing compression garments: 4 weeks
  • OK to resume sleeping on your stomach: 4 to 6 weeks
  • Swelling dissipates: 2 months
  • Resume strenuous activities: 6 to 8 weeks
  • Results become visible: 3 months
  • Final results: 6 months

Your actual recovery timeline will vary with the procedures you have performed, your pain tolerance, and other personal considerations.
