Preparing Your Body for a Mommy Makeover

Preparing Your Body for a Mommy Makeover

As a new mother, it’s no secret that your body undergoes drastic changes. You may notice fat deposits accumulating in places like the stomach and hips, and even your breasts may lose firmness and start to sag. These changes often prove persistent and challenging to address through diet and exercise alone. 


This is where a mommy makeover comes in. This customizable set of cosmetic procedures is specifically designed to target the physical changes brought on by pregnancy and childbirth, allowing mothers to regain their pre-baby bodies. From tummy tucks to breast lifts, a mommy makeover offers an effective solution for those looking to feel confident in their postpartum bodies.


At Galanis Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, CA, we can customize the perfect mommy makeover for each patient to address their unique concerns and goals. From consulting with you about your desired results to providing superior surgical care and postoperative support, we are dedicated to helping you feel confident and happy in your own skin once again.


What Is a Mommy Makeover? 


A mommy makeover is a term used to refer to a combination of plastic surgery procedures to restore and enhance a woman’s body after pregnancy. The procedures can vary, but they often include tummy tucks, breast lifts or augmentation, and liposuction. 


What Is Included in a Mommy Makeover


A mommy makeover combines plastic surgery procedures to restore the body after pregnancy and childbirth. The specific surgeries included in a mommy makeover can vary, but standard options include the following: 


Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a procedure that involves placing implants in the breasts to increase their size. This procedure can be performed using either silicone or saline implants.


Breast Lift

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that involves lifting the breasts to make them appear firmer and fuller. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.


Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen. This procedure can also repair abdominal muscles that have been stretched or torn.



Liposuction is a surgical procedure involving suctioning excess fat from specific body areas, such as the thighs, hips, or abdomen. This procedure can be performed using either traditional or laser-assisted techniques.


These procedures address the changes often occurring during pregnancy and childbirth, including breasts that may have lost volume or become saggy, stretched abdominal muscles, and excess fat deposits. However, many women feel happier and more confident after undergoing a successful mommy makeover. Overall, a mommy makeover can help mothers feel like themselves again after experiencing the physical effects of motherhood.


Why Do Women Seek Mommy Makeovers?


Women may choose to get a mommy makeover for various reasons, including feeling their body has changed in ways they do not like after having children. These changes may cause discomfort or dissatisfaction with their appearance, leading them to seek a mommy makeover to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. Additionally, the physical challenges of pregnancy and childbirth can result in functional changes such as weakened abdominal muscles or reduced breast elasticity. A mommy makeover can also correct these issues. Ultimately, getting a mommy makeover is a personal decision based on each individual’s desires and goals for their body post-childbirth.


Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover? 


It is important to note that every woman’s body is unique and what one person may want or need from a mommy makeover may differ from another. Generally, good candidates for a mommy makeover are women who are done with childbearing, at a stable weight and have realistic expectations for their results. Ultimately, it is best to speak with a doctor to determine if a mommy makeover is right for you. Ultimately, what truly makes someone a good candidate for a mommy makeover is what they desire for themselves and what will help them feel confident in their own skin.


How Do You Prepare for a Mommy Makeover? 


While a mommy makeover can yield excellent results, it’s essential to follow all pre-procedure instructions to ensure the best outcomes. This may include stopping food and drink consumption by a certain time before your appointment, having someone drive you home afterward, and scheduling time off from work for recovery. It’s also helpful to have a support person who can assist with childcare, household tasks, and meal preparation during the initial stages of recovery. Following these guidelines can allow for a smoother recovery and, ultimately, better results from your mommy makeover.


How Do You Get Started? 


Many women seek a mommy makeover after experiencing changes in their bodies due to pregnancy and childbirth. The first step in getting a mommy makeover is to schedule a consultation with us. During this appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and any concerns you may have about the procedure. We can also assess your overall health and determine the combination of surgeries most suitable for your desired outcome.
