Who Should Consider a Mommy Makeover?
Dr. Kim performs mommy makeover surgery for women who want an improved figure after having children. The best candidates are women who are in good overall health and have completed their families. While a mommy makeover won’t affect your ability to become pregnant, a future pregnancy could reverse some of your results. It’s recommended that women wait at least 6 months after giving birth and weaning before planning cosmetic surgery.
Women who benefit the most from a mommy makeover usually notice changes in their abdomen and breasts after pregnancy that make them feel less confident or affect the fit of their clothes. Areas of persistent fat may be present in other parts of the body as well. Many women take this opportunity to improve upon additional appearance con cerns so they can feel sexy and confident as they move forward in this new life stage.
Each mommy makeover is custom-tailored to the individual’s needs and specific body concerns. However, most women benefit from some form of breast enhancement and abdominoplasty. Some of the most common concerns after pregnancy include:
- The breasts may have lost their shape, firmness or volume.
- The midsection may appear bulging and saggy with excess skin and fatty tissue.
- The thighs, waist or other areas may still be storing excess fat that does not respond to diet or exercise.
- The breasts may be too large for comfort.

Mommy Makeover Techniques
Because every mommy makeover is different, there is no single approach that fits each woman’s needs. The most common procedures that women include in their mommy makeovers are listed below:
- Breast augmentation can restore lost volume in the breasts or fill out breasts that never developed as fully as you would have liked.
- A breast lift, or mastopexy, lifts the breasts to a more youthful position, reshapes the breasts and tightens breast skin.
- A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, creates a flatter and more youthful midsection by tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin and fat.
- Liposuction permanently removes fat cells in problem areas of the body, such as the love handles, thighs, waist, upper arms and more.
- Breast reduction can create lighter, more proportionate breasts.
In addition to the above procedures, many women have nonsurgical medical spa treatments to brighten and rejuvenate their look. During your initial consultation with Dr. Kim, you can explain your most prominent appearance concerns so she can make suitable recommendations. She will also explain what you can expect during your recovery and when you can see your final results.
