Mommy makeovers: Everything you need to know about it

Motherhood is a delight. Accompanying its joys, moms pay a cost with their bodies. It’s inevitable. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding create significant permanent changes to a mother’s appearance: sagging breasts with lost volume, stubborn pockets of fat, stretched tummy skin and loose abdominal muscles. No worries. Cosmetic plastic surgery can help you correct all of these. Let’s talk about the mommy makeover. It’s a transformative procedure that delivers positive impact on a mom’s self-esteem and confidence.


A mommy makeover is a patient specific customized combination of surgery which addresses each mom’s unique concerns. Typically, it includes a breast lift or augmentation, tummy tuck (with muscle repair) and liposuction (where a mom thinks she needs it). The goal of a mommy makeover is not to conform to societal beauty standards but rather to help mothers regain confidence in their bodies. It allows them to embrace their new role as a mother while feeling comfortable and happy in their own skin.


Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause breasts to sag, lose volume and look “deflated”. Breast lifting and augmentation restore fullness, reshape the breasts and elevate them to a youthful position. As well, fullness at the top of the breasts can be created. Breasts will look more like they did before pregnancy.


Tummy skin is stretched by a growing baby. As well, abdominal wall muscles are stretched outwards and can separate. This can create the stubborn “pooch” that’s difficult to get rid of, despite exercising and eating right. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) removes excess skin and fat and tightens abdominal wall muscles. This restores a flatter, more toned midsection. Mothers are provided an opportunity to reclaim their pre-pregnancy waistline and improve their overall body contour.


(Restoring the silhouette) Many women find certain areas of fat persist, despite their best efforts to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction targets these stubborn pockets of fat on the abdomen, hips, thighs and arms. It removes them permanently. Sculpting a body’s contour with liposuction creates a balanced and proportionate figure. That can enhance self-confidence and body image.


Recovery time varies according to which procedures the mom had done. Dr. Niessen will be with you every step of your recovery journey. Mothers who’ve had a mommy makeover report increased self-esteem, improved body image, and enhanced quality of life. By restoring their pre-pregnancy bodies or even enhancing them beyond their previous state, they feel empowered and ready to take on the challenges of motherhood with renewed vigour.

Motherhood is a transformative journey, and a mommy makeover can provide an equally transformative experience for mothers. It provides an opportunity to address the physical changes that pregnancy and childbirth create. It offers an opportunity for mothers to regain their confidence feel comfortable in their own skin. Dr. Niessen has been providing moms with these procedures for over 25 years. Come have a consultation with him and see what’s right for you. (..and please have a look at our GALLERY).
