The Mommy Makeover is a combination surgical procedure that addresses changes that occur following pregnancy. The procedure varies from patient to patient and depends upon how pregnancy has impacted a woman’s body. It’s not unusual for the procedure to include abdominoplasty, liposuction of the hips and thighs, breast augmentation and breast lift surgery.
The vast majority of patients require some type of liposuction during this procedure.In the majority of Mommy Makeover cases, tumescent liposuction is utilized but, in rare cases, smart liposuction is occasionally performed.
It’s essential that patients consult a board certified plastic surgeon before proceeding with Mommy Makeover surgery.This surgeon should be able to perform an evaluation and formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.In most cases, tumescent liposuction will be indicated.This procedure still represents the gold standard for treating localized fat collections.

The Mommy Makeover is an operation, or set of operations designed to improve the post baby body.  It usually consists of a breast lift (with or without implants), to address the changes that occur in the breast.  It also usually consists of a tummy tuck, (abdominoplasty).  Liposuction can be used on the abdomen area or other areas to address excess fat.  There are variations on the standard liposuction.  Some of these include the use of a different technology, (smartlipo, ultrasound lipo, vaser lipo).


Best to discuss your Mommy Makover with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  He/She will sit down and go over your goals with you.  Toghether you will make a proper decision as to what operation to do and what tools to do it with.

Thank you for your question.

Liposuction is a tool that is sometimes used during the mommy makeover procedure.  The exact procedures performed will depend on the patient and her goals.  The most important thing is to find a surgeon that you are comfortable with and who has extensive experience with the mommy makeover procedures.

SmartLipo is one of many different variations on liposuction.  Thus to answer your question... anyone who has a SmartLipo machine can do a mommy makeover using a smart lipo.  However, I strongly recommend that you look for a board certified plastic surgeon with a lot of experience in mommy makeovers, not one that happens to have a smartlipo machine.  Studies have shown that the many different variations on Liposuction all end up with similar final results.

A Mommy Makeover involves the enhancement of your breasts and tummy to correct the the effects of pregnancy. Breasts may be lifted or augmented, or both. Tummy tucks, either mini or full, may be combined with liposuction to eliminate stretch marks, reduce fat pockets, and tighten skin. Tumescent liposuction or laser-assisted liposuction, such as SmartLipo may be added to improve your waistline.

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures post child birth. If the fat deposits to be eliminated are isolated and minimal then smartlipo may be a component. However, tradtonal liposuction and/or tummy tuck are more oftten the body contouring procedures for the mommy makeover.
