Congratulations on your weight loss. Based on your photos alone, you could be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. First, the 3 model wish pics are of women who have not had kids or weight fluctuations. So its not realistic to think you will look exactly like them. That said, your mommy makeover will be transformation for you. For your breasts, if you are seeking more volume, I would likely suggest a breast augmentation and a lift. For your tummy, you may want to consider a tummy tuck with liposuction of your waist and flanks to achieve that hour-glass shape you are seeking. Of course, a physical exam is needed to make any formal recommendations. Please visit with a board certified PS to learn more about your options. Best wishes,
1. you aren't breastfeeding and stopped at least 6 months ago
2. if your weight has stabilized at 168 (even though you aren’t at your pre-pregnancy weight)
You would probably consider a tummy tuck, breast augmentation/lift and brazilian butt lift to improve your mid-section, breast contour and buttocks. This would be extensive and may require 2 or 3 surgeries (depending on the advice of your surgeon). However, please note that it’s important to have realistic expectations. You may not achieve the same shape of the models in your wish pics. You should look at your body and see how it can be improved proportionally for a natural-looking result.
Are you ready for a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy and motherhood are wonderful and exciting times in a woman’s life. Many women, however, will experience unwanted permanent physical changes that are not always desirable. All too often, women find it emotionally and physically difficult to adjust to these new changes in their bodies affecting their self-esteem and personal self-image. These changes vary greatly and range from stretch marks and varicose veins to the more significant changes such as, smaller and sagging breasts, enlarged waist with redundant skin and larger hips.
Fortunately, there are many treatments available to correct or improve these common post-pregnancy changes. Many of these procedures are non-surgical or relatively simple outpatient surgeries. Some treatments are possible because of new technology such as lasers and liposuction developed in just the last few years. These surgeries are commonly known as the “mommy makeover”. Follow the links to more detailed information on each procedure. #mommymakeover

You are likely very close to being ready for mommy makeover surgery. Generally speaking, the “ideal” patient for mommy makeover surgery is one who has completed pregnancies, is psycho socially/emotionally/financially stable, has an excellent social support system surrounding him/her, is capable of arranging enough recovery time, does not smoke and who has reached a long-term stable weight.
Based on your photographs, I think you will likely benefit from breast augmentation/lifting surgery as well as tummy tuck surgery. My best suggestion: select your plastic surgeon carefully. Make sure that he/she has a significant/demonstrable experience achieving the types of outcomes you will be pleased with. Then, communicate your goals very carefully, as you have done here.
Learn about the pros/cons/risks/complications associated with surgery and make sure that you have a good sense of realistic expectations as well.
I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to mommy makeover surgery concerns) helps. Best wishes.

May your current weight you would have great results with lipoabdominoplasty and fat grafting to your buttocks. I doubt however that you would be able to get to the measurements you listed especially the waist measurement. So you have to be realistic about what surgery can do for you as well.
Find a surgeon you trust and is honest with you. Hopefully they can guide you in your decision making process. Best of luck!
