What are the core ingredients of a Mommy Makeover?
I finally had my last child and got my tubes tied and will be treating myself to a mommy makeover. Although, I do not really understand everything that comes in a standard “Mommy Makeover”. Can I pick and choose and still get what people refer to as a Mommy Makeover. Not sure what the etiquette here is.
Standard for mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck and some type of breast lift or augmentation. However, it is always tailored to the individual needs of the patient. So yours will include whatever areas you want to treat. Meet with a board certified plastic surgeon with a good reputation for doing mommy makeovers so you can learn more about the options for your specific situation. Best of luck!

The term mommy makeover was probably coined by the press not surgeons. The concept is good. Restore the things that are damaged or altered by having children. At a minimum it would include breast and abdomen modifications. That could be simple implants or lifting procedures. The abdomen could be liposuction or abdominoplasty. Included sometimes would be modification of the labia if they have been changed by childbirth. Discuss this with a board certified surgeon in your area. Make certain you know all the options and alternatives.
