What Is Mommy Makeover?

The cosmetic surgery which aims at enhancing the body of a female, disfigured after pregnancy is known as a mommy make over. Areas of disfigurement include breasts, abdomen, buttocks and vagina. The mommy makeover has the prime goal of restoring the shape of these parts and bringing them back to the normal shape.

Causes of disfigurement:

  • The primary cause for a disfigurement involving such a large scale of the body in females is pregnancy.
  • It causes unusual fat distribution mainly at sites such breasts, buttocks and abdomen.
  • Scars may also be seen in the abdomen following a C section.
  • Widening of the birth canal during labour may cause loosening of the cervix and vagina

Treatment Procedure for Mommy Makeover:

Breast augmentation: These are cosmetic approaches for enhancing, uplifting and reconstructing the breast parts.  Most commonly employed method is the breast reduction surgery. The extra fat and adipose tissues which add to the bulk of the mammary glands are removed in this approach. In breast reconstruction method, skin texture over the breasts and sagging is taken care of. Mastopexy is the surgical approach for the upliftment of breasts. Loose areola and skin over the chest gives an improper shape to the breasts making them look saggy. This procedure tightens the fascia and muscles around the breasts and gives them an uplifted appearance.


Buttock augmentation: Also known as gluteal augmentation, it is used to improve the size, colour and contour of the buttocks. This can be done with the help of implants fat grafting or many a times by the combination of the two. Implants are placed surgically, into the deeper tissues of the butt. Fatty tissue can also be grafted around the butt irrespective of an implant. This procedure is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift.


Vaginal rejuvenation: It is also known by the names of female genital plastic surgery, female genital rejuvenation therapy, female genital cosmetic surgery. It can be done in a variety of methods for all the parts constituting the female gentiles. These surgeries are as follows:

  • Labiaplasty: It refers to reduction in the length of the labia minora. One of the most common types of cosmetic genital surgery done in females, it can relieve symptoms women face due to twisting and tugging of the labia.
  • Clitoral hood reduction: It aims at removing the excess folds, fats and mass at the head of clitoris.
  • Labia majoraplasty: It is a method to reduce the size and contour of the hair bearing labia majora of the female genital part.
  • Monsplasty: Bulging of the mons pubis is reduced with the help of this.
  • Vaginoplasty: It is also known as colporrhaphy. It is done to tighten the vagina. Radiofrequency waves and lasers are used to generate heat for the same. Loose and laxed vagina which is due to widening of the birth canal is ideally treated by this method.


Tummy tuck surgery: It is the procedure of abdominoplasty which aims at improving the overall appearance of the abdomen and waist. It results in removal of excess fats and tightening of muscles and fascia of the abdominal wall. In a complete type of tummy tuck approach, two incisions are made. One in the naval region and one in the waist from left to the right side. Due to this the skin from the wall of the abdomen can be detached and the muscles and fascia are exposed. Suturing is then done to tighten the muscles and the excess fat is removed with the help of liposuction. In a partial type of approach, a relatively smaller incision is made. Excess skin and fats are removed in a very precise manner. Suturing is done after stretching the skin.


Liposuction: It is a branch of cosmetic surgery which intends to remove the excess fat from the various parts of the body. For a mommy makeover, liposuction can be done for abdomen, buttocks and thighs. In a tumescent liposuction method, a sterile solution is injected into the area from where fats are needed to be removed. An incision is then made and a tube called as a cannula is placed below the skin which sucks the fat into a vaccum connected to it. In an ultrasound assisted liposuction, a metal rod is inserted into the area which emits ultrasonic energy. As a result of this, the fat walls disintegrate and the quantity is sucked into the vaccum. In a similar fashion, a laser technique can also be used to liquefy fats and remove them via suction.

Complications And Risk Factors Associated With Mommy Makeover:

  • Hematoma generally occurs at the site of infection due to a blot clot that fails to resolve.
  • Tenderness and pain may persist for a longer duration of time.
  • Scarring of the skin may occur around the sutures.
  • Wound infection and bleeding may occur if proper care is not taken.
