- Yes, a mommy make-over will make a huge difference for you!
- You will need a tummy tuck and a breast lift and implants as well if you want to be larger.
- Even though you are overweight, you have lost your stomach support -
- Your BMI is 30, making you within a very good range for surgery.
- Having surgery may help you lose more weight - by making it easier to be active and to feel good about yourself.
Mommy Makeover for a Slimmer, More Youthful Appearance
From the information you have provided, it appears that you would be a great candidate for a combined procedure. I would recommend a tummy-tuck with liposuction. A "Mommy Makeover" is not a single procedure, but a combination of procedures to restore and enhance the appearance of a woman's body following her pregnancies. The result is smoother skin texture as well as a more youthful, slimmer appearance. A Mommy Makeover involves a combination of procedures:
1.Breast augmentation, lift , augmentation with a lift, or reduction
2. Liposuction of the abdomen or abdominoplasty (mini or full)
3. Liposuction of the hips, thigh, or buttocksThe choice of procedures depends on your aesthetic goals-each treatment is individualized. I would recommend consulting with a Plastic Surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery well versed in all of the procedures available for the Mommy Makeover.

Mommy Makeover Combined Procedures and Cost
Combined operations are often performed with our Gynecology colleagues. Tubal ligation is a common post pregnancy procedure which is done at the time of many of the surgeries noted above. If you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your doctor. Combining these procedures decreases anesthetics, costs, and recovery time.

Multiple procedures, some advices:
Therefore, you must be a healthy person, within an appropriate BMI and no history of diseases that increase the surgical / anesthetic risk degree.
Finally, I recommend you a skilled certified plastic surgeon in body contouring surgery and experienced in cases like yours where the planned operating time is less than five hours. Respectfully,
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Best wishes and good luck.

Based on your photographs, it is likely that you will be a good candidate for tummy tuck and breast augmentation surgery at some point. The quality of the photographs are not such that I can determine whether breast lifting may be necessary as well.
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.
When it comes to cost of surgery, there may be many “variables” involved. The specific surgeon's credentials/experience level (or lack thereof), the specific geographic area you are looking at, the different operations available, the location of the procedure ( quality of surgery facility), type/quality of anesthesia provider, type of breast implants… are some of the potential variables involved. You will find average costs of surgery listed on this website, and on individual plastic surgeon's websites as well.
In regards to outcome of the planned procedure, more important than costs of the procedures will be careful selection of your plastic surgeon. I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery.
***Ask to SEE lots of examples of their work AND preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done. Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
