Choosing the Right Procedures for Your Mommy Makeover –A Step-by-Step Guide

In Melbourne, FL

Every woman’s journey through motherhood is unique and beautiful, but it often leaves lasting changes to the body. While these natural changes can be symbols of love and life, they can also negatively impact a woman’s confidence and comfort. It doesn’t have to be that way with the help of a mommy makeover! Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Novo and Dr. Gasgarth, can help restore your pre-pregnancy body with a combination of different procedures to ensure you can achieve your aesthetic goals.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures done to help you return your body back to its pre-pregnancy state. It can include a number of different procedures depending on your needs. Some of the most common surgeries included in a mommy makeover include tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is commonly included in a mommy makeover to address sagging breasts and volume loss. This cosmetic procedure can provide you with firmer, higher, and fuller breasts with the help of silicone or saline implants. The recovery time can vary, but most women are back to work within 1 to 2 weeks.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, can address loose abdominal skin, excess fat, and weakened abdominal muscles. This procedure can restore the taut, flat tummy you had pre-pregnancy and enhance your overall physique. Post-surgery downtime typically ranges from 2 to 3 weeks.


Liposuction can address any areas where you’re experiencing unwanted pockets of fat. If you’ve been dieting and exercising and not seeing results, liposuction can be the perfect solution. Whether you’re looking to remove fat from under your chin, around your waist, or along your hips and thighs, Dr. Novo and Dr. Gasgarth can give you the results you’re looking for.

Identify Your Concerns and Goals

The first step in the mommy makeover journey is identifying your personal concerns and goals. Pregnancy can impact almost every part of the body, but some areas are often more affected than others. The breasts may sag or lose volume, the abdomen often develops loose, excess skin and stubborn fat deposits, and the waistline can lose its curve. Each woman has their unique concerns, and that’s why an individualized treatment plan is essential.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Most people who come in looking to get back their pre-baby body are good candidates for a mommy makeover, but there are some criteria we look for to determine if a patient is right for the combination procedure or not. The criteria include:

  • In good overall health
  • Done having children and finished breastfeeding
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Nonsmokers
  • Don’t have any medical conditions that could negatively affect the healing process
