Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful experiences a woman can have, but it also makes significant changes to the body. Many women struggle with excess weight, loose skin, and changes in their breast tissue after giving birth.
While some of these changes can be addressed through diet and exercise, others may need cosmetic treatment to be resolved.
Galanis Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills has designed our “mommy makeover” to help women get their pre-pregnancy body back. The mommy makeover is a customized combination of surgical treatments that target the stubborn fat, loose skin, and sagging breasts that often develop after giving birth and breastfeeding.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover is a plastic surgical procedure that combines a series of cosmetic treatments to resolve pregnancy-related changes.
Women often see major changes to their figure after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. These changes may be due to weight fluctuations, stretched skin, and changes in breast volume. Many new mothers find that they have excess weight, loose skin around their midsections, and sagging breasts.
While diet and exercise can help with weight loss, many women find themselves stuck with stubborn fat around the abdomen. Dieting and exercise also won’t resolve loose skin or changes in breast tissue. This is where a treatment like the mommy makeover can make a huge difference.
What Can Be Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover includes a combination of various cosmetic procedures to help women address their post-pregnancy aesthetic concerns. Your mommy makeover may include a combination of any of the following:
One of the biggest struggles post-childbirth is losing the weight you gained while pregnant. Many women struggle to drop these excess pounds through diet and exercise alone. It can also be hard to exercise or follow a specific diet when caring for a young child.
Liposuction uses advanced technology to break down fat and remove it from your body, creating a slimmer figure. It targets localized areas of your body that may have developed fat deposits during your pregnancy.
With the weight fluctuations that occur during and after pregnancy, you may end up with excess loose skin around the midsection. This may be the case if you gained a large amount of weight during your pregnancy and then lost it rapidly after giving birth.
A tummy tuck procedure will remove this excess loose skin and tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. This procedure will restore a flat, more defined appearance to your abdomen.
Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, you will see a significant change in your breast tissue. Your breasts will grow in size and then lose volume, causing them to droop and sag.
A breast augmentation will add volume to your breasts with silicone or saline implants. In addition, a breast lift will reposition your breasts, lifting them higher on your chest and resolving drooping or sagging.
Who Should Try the Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover is intended for any woman who has experienced changes in her figure after pregnancy and childbirth. If you have been left with excess weight, loose skin, or sagging breasts after giving birth, you may benefit from a mommy makeover.
You can find out whether this is the best treatment for you by scheduling a consultation with our certified medical professionals. We can assess your aesthetic concerns and discuss your desired outcome to determine whether a mommy makeover is the right procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions About the Mommy Makeover
It’s understandable to have some questions and concerns prior to seeking a new cosmetic procedure. The following are a few of the most frequently asked questions about the mommy makeover:
Can Other Procedures Be Added to A Mommy Makeover?
While the standard mommy makeover includes some liposuction, a tummy tuck, and breast augmentation, we can include other procedures to meet your needs.
Some of our patients desire an arm lift or thigh lift. Either of these can be included in your customized mommy makeover plan. We will discuss these treatment options with you during your initial consultation.
Is There Any Preparation Necessary for a Mommy Makeover?
Prior to your mommy makeover, you must be in good health. You will need to receive full medical clearance from your regular physician to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo general anesthesia.
Our medical team will discuss other necessary preparations with you, such as abstaining from food and drink the night before your surgery. This is a precaution taken before all procedures involving general anesthesia.
Are Mommy Makeover Results Permanent?
You will see the results of your mommy makeover soon after your procedure. To maintain your results, we recommend following a healthy diet and getting regular exercise. If you lead an unhealthy lifestyle after your treatment, you may regain weight or see a change in your surgical outcome.
