Overview of the Mommy Makeover Experience
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. The most commonly requested procedures include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift (Mastopexy), and breast augmentation. Additional procedures may be recommended and performed depending on each individual’s goals and concerns.’
‘Most Mommy Makeover patients are in their late 30s to early 50s, have completed their family, and are done breastfeeding. Having realistic expectations is important for any cosmetic surgery procedure, and this is especially true for the Mommy Makeover. It is important to remember that the Mommy Makeover is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a set of procedures meant to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state.’
‘The best candidates for a Mommy Makeover are non-smokers in good physical health with loose skin and deformities resulting from pregnancy and breastfeeding. Patients should also have finished having children before undergoing surgery.’
‘A typical Mommy Makeover procedure takes two to three hours to complete, though this will vary depending on the number and type of procedures being performed. Recovery times vary as well, but are typically short; most patients take one week off from work and normal activity, with additional time needed if more than one surgery is performed.’

Your body has changed over the past year, and it will continue to change. Your body is adapting to the new changes and continuing to heal. The incisions from your surgery are healed, but they may still be tender to the touch. Your scars will continue to fade over time.
You may have some residual swelling in your abdomen and breasts, but this should resolve itself over time. If you had liposuction as part of your Mommy Makeover, you may notice that your skin feels tighter in the treated area.
Your breast implants will settle into place over the next few months. You may also notice that your nipples are more sensitive than before. This is normal and should improve over time.
If you had a tummy tuck as part of your Mommy Makeover, you will have a scar that runs along the lower half of your stomach. The scar will fade over time, but it will never completely disappear.
You should avoid strenuous activity for at least six weeks after your surgery to allow your body to heal properly. After this time, you can gradually increase your activity level, but make sure to listen to your body and take it easy when you need to.
Your emotions may still be up and down a year after your Mommy Makeover surgery. You may be feeling pressure to get back into shape quickly or anxious about the outcome of your surgery. It’s important to practice self-care during this time and give yourself space to process. Don’t forget to talk with your doctor if you feel overwhelmed or depressed.
Remember that it took nine months for your body to recover from pregnancy and childbirth, so it will also take some time for it to recover from a Mommy Makeover. Don’t expect too much too soon, as it can take a full year for your body and mind to recover from the changes brought about by your surgery.
Common Postoperative Complications 1 Year After a Mommy Makeover
It is not uncommon for patients to experience some postoperative complications after a mommy makeover. The most common complications include infection, seroma, and hematoma. Infection can usually be treated with antibiotics. Seroma is a collection of fluid that can form under the skin and will usually resolve on its own. Hematoma is a collection of blood that can occur under the skin and may require drainage.
Other less common complications include wound healing problems, nipple/areola changes, and scarring. Wound healing problems can sometimes be treated with topical ointments or oral medications. Nipple/areola changes can occur in some patients, but typically resolve on their own over time. Scarring can vary from patient to patient depending on their individual healing process.
If you experience any of these complications, it is important to contact your doctor so they can develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.
