As women grow older, telltale signs of aging appear all over their bodies. This causes them to believe they look unattractive, which in turn negatively affects their self-esteem. More and more women are coming in for plastic surgery to improve their appearance.

Many mothers are displeased with their post-pregnancy bodies. They are unhappy with their sagging breasts, loose tummies, and the weight they gained during their pregnancies. One popular option for mothers is a Mommy Makeover package.

What Is a Mommy Makeover Package?

The term “Mommy Makeover” is more of a marketing moniker than an actual procedure itself. It’s more of a package of procedures. Mommy Makeovers consist of multiple plastic surgery procedures that help improve or restore a woman’s body after childbirth. The trend is gaining popularity as more ladies are seeking solutions to restore their aging bodies and look more youthful.

What Can a Mommy Makeover Package Contain?

A Mommy Makeover can contain a mix of procedures like the breast lift, augmentation mastopexy (a breast lift with implants), the tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Breast Lift

Women’s breasts change as they age. Women notice a decrease in skin elasticity, which normally results from pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity, aging, weight fluctuations, and even heredity reasons.

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, involves removing excess skin in order to tighten the tissues. This helps reshape and raise the breasts for a more youthful and attractive look. This procedure addresses issues like uneven or sagging breasts, drooping nipples, and stretched areolae.

Augmentation Mastopexy

Also known as a breast lift with implants, this procedure combines the breast lift with breast implants that help restore and enhance the volume of the breasts and make them firmer. It involves the insertion of implants into the breasts. These implants are normally made of silicone gel or saline that is encased in a silicone envelope.

Tummy Tuck

This cosmetic procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, is conducted to make the patient’s abdomen taut and slim. It involves removing excess fat and skin and tightening loose muscles in the midriff region and abdomen.

The procedure results in an overall tightening of the muscles and tissue around the abdominal wall. Most patients who seek this procedure are women who have sagging tummies due to pregnancy or after a drastic weight loss.

The procedure comes in two forms: complete abdominoplasty and partial, or mini, abdominoplasty. A mini abdominoplasty is ideal for the lower abdomen specifically and is less invasive than the full surgery.


This is a type of cosmetic surgery that focuses on the removal of excess fat from different parts of the body. It is a surgical procedure that helps improve the contours of the body. Excess fat can be removed from areas like the stomach, thighs, hips, abdomen, and love handles.

Set Up a Consultation

Ladies who are considering a Mommy Makeover package are advised to discuss the procedures involved with their doctor before they begin. Like all cosmetic procedures, these also include some risks and complications, so the patient must be fully aware of them before they continue.
