What You Should Know About Mommy Makeovers


Following pregnancy and childbirth, it’s common for mothers to experience bodily changes, including loose skin, breast ptosis, and excess fat. That’s where the procedure known as the “mommy makeover” began. If you’re interested in a mommy makeover, here are a few things you should know. 

It’s Not Just One Procedure

A mommy makeover, while named as one procedure, is actually the name for a combination of procedures commonly used to address common concerns affected by motherhood. Common surgical procedures used in mommy makeovers include: 

When you schedule a consultation to discuss your interest in a mommy makeover, Dr. John J. Corey will help you decide which combination of procedures is ideal for you. 

They’re Not Just for Mothers

The term mommy makeover was coined to describe the combination of procedures commonly sought out by mothers–tummy tucks, liposuction, and a breast procedure. However, they are not just for women who have experienced pregnancy and childbirth. 

They can also be beneficial for addressing certain bothesome areas that may have always existed unrealted to childbirth and due more to genetic factors. In both of these cases, it’s common to experience many of the same aesthetic concerns mothers experience, such as loose skin, excess fat, breast ptosis, and stretched abdominal muscles. 

They’re Not “One-Size-Fits-All”

While there are procedures that are common to a mommy makeover, it is not a one-size-fits-all surgery. During your initial consultation with Dr. Corey, you can discuss your goals, preferences, and concerns, and he will tailor a procedure to your needs. 

They Save Recovery and Downtime

As with many other cosmetic procedures, mommy makeovers require recovery and downtime. Since it’s more extensive, recovery time can be longer than a standard procedure. However, by combining multiple surgeries into one longer procedure, you are reducing the time you spend in recovery overall. If you don’t opt for a mommy makeover, you would have to undergo each of the procedures you want separately, which means more time spent in recovery and in surgery.
