Who Are the Best Candidates for Mommy Makeover Surgery?

mommy makeover (25) After experiencing significant weight loss, a mommy makeover surgery can help reshape your body, remove excess fat and skin tissue, and provide you with a more contoured and youthful look. Determining if you are a good candidate for this procedure is vital. 

Who Are the Best Candidates for Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Before considering a mommy makeover, you want to be within 10% of your ideal weight. If you continue to lose weight after the procedures, the excessive skin may ruin your final look, so wait until the right moment when you have a stable weight near your ideal weight. It is also important that you are in good overall health and do not have plans to have any more children. A future pregnancy could reverse the results you receive from the mommy makeover. If you want to have more children in the future, it is best to hold off on surgery. 

What Is Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Mommy makeover surgery is a combination of procedures, which, depending on your specific needs, may include:

  • Mastopexy: A mastopexy is a breast lift.
  • Augmentation mammoplasty: This is the insertion of breast implants.
  • Abdominoplasty: This is commonly called a “tummy tuck.”
  • Liposuction: This procedure removes stubborn pockets of fat.


Breasts usually get larger from weight gain during pregnancy. Stretched skin may make your breasts sag and flatten. The breast lift procedure removes the excess skin and places the breast higher on the chest, and perhaps the nipples are adjusted and relocated.

Augmentation Mammoplasty

Breastfeeding usually decreases breast volume. You may want to bring your breasts back to the pre-pregnancy size or make them larger by using implants. If you have a mastopexy, you can also have an augmentation mammoplasty using the same small cuts to place the implants.


A tummy tuck removes sagging skin and repositions your stomach muscles to create a flat stomach.


This procedure gets rid of stubborn fat that can show up after pregnancy. These pockets of fat do not decrease even when you exercise. Liposuction removes this fat from your thighs (inner and outer areas), abdomen, and hips.
