A #mommymakeover is a combination of many of the procedures you had listed above. Most commonly some variation of a #TummyTuck and #BeastSurgery are performed. Additional procedures can include #liposuction, umbilical hernia repair. The most common #breastprocedures include #mastopexy (#breastlift), #breastaugmentation, or #breastreduction.
Consult a #boardcertified plastic surgeon in person to determine which procedures are best for you.

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”.
Far more important than deciding if a tummy tuck or a mommy makeover is for you is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let him explain why one technique may be better than another and if you need a tummy tuck. Many board certified plastic surgeons provide a free first time consult and you should take advantage of that!

I understand it is extremely difficult to loose weight, but in your case, it would help so you can enjoy better results and less complications associated with being overweight. That said, a full TT with mesh reinforcement and The Horndeski Method breast lift will improve your shape dramatically. The Horndeski Method does not require breast implants to create upper pole fullness so you are not plagued with the risks/complications and maintenance associated with them in the future. There is less scarring and improved long term results that vertical incision lifts cannot offer. A TT with mesh reinforcement re-establishes internal support lost by pregnancy or massive weight gain. Attached is a link that explains both techniques in detail.
I hope this helps.
Best wishes and kind regards,
As always, it is best to have an in-person assessment with a Plastic Surgeon who can go over all of your options.
Mommy Makeover Surgery
Tummy tuck, body lift or liposuction?
- I understand your confusion.
- In general, if one is over-weight and has not had children - liposuction is needed.
- If one has had children - a tummy tuck.
- If one has lost a lot of weight - a lower body lift.
- If one wants a tummy tuck and breast surgery - then we call it a mommy make-over.
- It isn't clear from the photos if you need a breast enlargement or a breast lift as well.
- If you have had children - then a tummy tuck + breast surgery = your mommy make-over!
- But every person is different.
- I think for you, a consultation will be more helpful than an on-line opinion.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
