Mommy Makeover
Conveniently located to serve Chicago and IL

A mommy makeover is a broad term used to describe plastic surgery procedures designed to improve the aesthetics and appearance of a woman’s body after having children, while also boosting one’s confidence. After children, many mothers yearn for the bodies they had pre-pregnancy and mommy makeover procedures are a great way to achieve those goals. The constellation of procedures referred to as a mommy makeover include facial rejuvenation, a breast lift with or without breast implants, liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, and vaginal rejuvenation.

Based upon your aesthetic goals and anatomy, a mommy makeover procedure will be tailored to your specific needs based on what was most affected by your pregnancy. After an evaluation with a board certified plastic surgeon, a treatment plan will be determined. Depending upon which procedures are recommended, they can be performed together in one surgery or staged into several different surgeries. Your treatment options can include the following:

Breast Surgery

During and after pregnancy, breasts can become deflated and sag. A breast lift with implants is a great option to restore the size and shape of a woman’s breast to pre-pregnancy aesthetics. A saline or gel implant is placed underneath the breast during the breast augmentation procedure and a simultaneous mastopexy or breast lift is performed to lift the nipples and breast to a more youthful position on your chest. Alternatively, a woman’s breast can increase in size after pregnancy causing neck and back pain. In this situation, a breast reduction procedure may be your best option to relieve the neck and back pain associated with large breasts.

Tummy Tuck

During pregnancy, the abdominal skin and muscles can become stretched and loose, resulting in lax abdominal muscles and excess abdominal skin and fat. Stretch marks of the abdominal skin can also occur during pregnancy. A tummy tuck with liposuction is a procedure plastic surgeons perform to tighten the abdominal muscles and remove unwanted skin and fat. The goal of a tummy tuck is a smoother, flatter, well-defined abdomen and, in some cases, to restore weakened muscles in the abdomen.

Facial Rejuvenation

As we age, our skin of the face deflates and sags resulting in the signs of aging. Weight fluctuation during pregnancy can exacerbate the aging process. Most women in their 20’s and 30’s are good candidates for non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures such as, dermal fillers, botox, laser treatments, and skin care regimens. Some women in their 40’s and 50’s can be good candidates for non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures but also surgical procedures such as a facelift, neck lift, facial fat grafting, brow lift, and eyelid lift. Refer to our individual procedure pages for more information on these surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

After pregnancy, the vagina can change drastically in appearance and function. Specific aesthetic considerations can be addressed by your plastic surgeon, such as the size of the vaginal canal and the size/shape of the labia majora and labia minora. Labiaplasty, for example, is a popular procedure that is performed in order to decrease the size and improve the shape of the labial minora. Be sure to speak with your plastic surgeon to determine if one or more of the procedures associated with a mommy makeover are right for you.
