While pregnancy is beautiful, it is by no means easy on the woman’s body. Even with steps to control your weight gain and stay in shape, it’s not uncommon for women to emerge from childbirth with a very different-looking body. Mommy makeover is a collection of highly personalized surgical procedures that reverse the effects of childbirth, nursing, and aging on your body. Brand Surgical Institute performs highly personalized mommy makeovers to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
What does a mommy makeover include?
Brand Surgical Institute provides a comprehensive suite of surgical techniques. The specific procedures involved in your mommy makeover depend on your goals and conditions. Our surgeons will carefully examine your anatomy, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to recommend the ideal procedures. Since the breasts and abdomen are the common problem areas that dramatically change during pregnancy and breastfeeding, a mommy makeover usually includes breast surgeries and tummy tucks. Below, we describe some of the possible mommy makeover procedures.
Breast augmentation enhances the shape, size, and contours of your breasts. The surgeon places saline or silicone implants above or under your chest muscles to enhance the projection of your breasts, making them look fuller and more curvaceous.
A breast lift makes your breast look perkier and more youthful. The surgeon makes strategic incisions to trim away excess skin tissues, reposition the nipples, and make the breasts look uplifted. This procedure is suitable for patients with sagging/ drooping breasts.
Breast reduction involves the surgical extraction of excess glandular tissues from the breasts to decrease breast volume. You can undergo breast reduction if you experience significant back pain and shoulder pain because of heavy breasts or if you want more proportional breasts.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that helps you achieve a firm and contoured abdomen. The surgeon makes strategic incisions on the hip line to remove excess skin tissues and tighten the underlying muscles, making your abdomen look firm.
Liposuction involves the physical extraction of excess fat cells from targeted areas of the body. If you have pockets of excess fat cells in specific parts of your body, such as the tummy and back, you are a suitable candidate. This procedure significantly improves your body’s contours.
Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure for women with sagging/ drooping skin tissues under the upper arms. The surgeon makes an incision from the underarms to the elbows to trim excess skin tissues and make your arms look firm.
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure for patients with excess skin tissues or fat deposits in the thighs. The surgeon makes a strategic incision on the inner thighs, following which they remove excess skin tissues and fat deposits, making the thighs look smooth and youthful.

What is recovery like after a mommy makeover?
The recovery period after a mommy makeover can last for up to 2 weeks, depending on the procedures included in your mommy makeover package. During that time, expect to experience soreness, swelling, and bruising. Your surgeon will provide you with instructions to follow after the procedure. There are recovery aids, such as compression garments, pain medication, and muscle relaxants to assist in the recovery process. You should avoid strenuous workouts for at least 6 to 8 weeks after a mommy makeover.
