What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Rejuvenating your body with a mommy makeover can do wonders for renewing your energy and confidence. This personalized combination of cosmetic procedures can help you regain the appearance of youth and vitality that a beautiful figure represents to the world. Prior to surgery, you and your surgeon will discuss your individual goals, and your mommy makeover will be designed to address your needs, enhancing and restoring your body in the areas where it needs it most.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in the Bay Area?
Due to the highly customizable nature of mommy makeover procedures, it’s impossible to provide an accurate quote over the internet. In San Jose, the cost of a mommy makeover varies with a number of factors, including:
- Surgeries performed
- Surgical approach required
- Type of breast implants, if used
- Other fees, such as an anesthesia fee
During your consultation, your surgeon will create a written quote just for you that accurately reflects your aesthetic goals.
Mommy Makeover Candidates
The typical candidate for a mommy makeover is a woman who has experienced the weight fluctuation, skin and muscle stretching, and breast changes that come with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Mommy makeover candidates should be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations about what cosmetic surgery can do.

What Is Usually Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Your surgeon can customize your mommy makeover to fit your individual needs. He evaluates any concerns you have about your body’s appearance, and together you discuss your options and determine which procedures would produce the most complete, balanced, and beautiful results.
Although your mommy makeover can be fully customized, most women undergoing the procedure have at least 2 of the following to reshape the areas of the body that are most affected by pregnancy:
- Tummy tuck is especially popular with women who have been pregnant because it improves multiple layers of the abdomen. During this procedure, your surgeon expertly tightens loose, weakened, or displaced abdominal muscles before removing localized fat deposits and sagging, excess skin. He can even remove stretch marks and C-section scars in some cases. The result is a smoother, tighter, stronger abdomen that improves how you look and feel in your favorite outfits.
- Breast augmentation with or without a breast lift can improve the breasts’ size, position, or both. Pregnancy and breastfeeding typically cause the breasts to swell, and after weaning, they lose volume once again. This often leaves the breasts with a saggy, “deflated” appearance – and they may even be smaller than they were pre-baby. Breast augmentation adds soft, natural-looking volume to the breasts, while a lift raises and repositions them to sit higher on the chest. The two procedures can be performed at once for a more dramatic improvement.
- Liposuction often puts the “finishing touches” on a mommy makeover, touching up and refining areas such as the thighs, waist, upper arms, and even below the chin. Because it uses such small incisions, liposuction leaves behind very discreet scars. It’s an excellent solution for areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Some women also choose to include labiaplasty or facial rejuvenation surgery in their mommy makeovers. The choices are really up to you and what you want to achieve.

Mommy Makeover Recovery
Although the details of your recuperation will vary based on the specifics of your surgery, our surgeons use careful techniques during each procedure to minimize bruising, swelling, and overall recovery time. The typical mommy makeover patient in San Jose can usually return to work and other social activities after about 2 weeks. However, our surgeons typically instruct patients to avoid vigorous activity such as exercise for several more weeks. During your consultation and subsequent preoperative appointments, your surgeon will give you a better understanding of what you can anticipate during your recuperation.
Your New Look
Your ultimate results will also vary depending on the specific procedures your mommy makeover includes. With a typical mommy makeover, you will enjoy significant improvement in the shape and firmness of your breasts, your new, trim shape can be maintained through reasonable diet and exercise, and you will likely feel more confident and refreshed.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
What are the benefits of combining procedures?
A mommy makeover combines multiple cosmetic procedures into a single surgical experience to provide a variety of benefits over having them performed separately, including:
- Preventing repeated exposure to anesthesia
- Reducing recovery time
- Requiring less time away from work and your active life as a mom
- Saving on the cost of anesthesia, surgical center, and other fees
Instead of enhancing your physical appearance one step at a time, the renewal of your body is completed all at once.
Can I get a mommy makeover if I’ve never been pregnant?
Despite its name, the mommy makeover is not just for mothers. It’s also appropriate for people who wish to simultaneously tighten and lift their breasts, abdomen, and other parts of their bodies that have sagged due to substantial weight loss, aging, and other factors. During your consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your concerns to determine whether a mommy makeover is right for you.
Is it safe to combine procedures?
Yes. Mommy makeovers are popular procedures that have been successfully performed on thousands of women across the country. Prior to surgery, your surgeon asks you many questions about your lifestyle and medical history to determine whether the procedure is a good match for you. Although many women are physically able to undergo several surgeries all at once, others may be better served by a staged approach. Your surgeon will help you decide which option will provide you with the safest and most effective results.
How soon after having children can I undergo a mommy makeover?
Although it’s exciting to plan a mommy makeover, it’s important to give your body plenty of time to recover following childbirth. Prior to undergoing surgery, you should be at or near a healthy weight and have completed breastfeeding. Patients should also be able to care for themselves properly during recuperation. For most, this means enlisting extra help with chores and childcare. Our surgeons advise prospective patients to wait at least 6 months after childbirth before undergoing the surgery.
Can I have children after a mommy makeover?
Although it’s possible and safe to become pregnant after a mommy makeover, our surgeons generally advise against it in order to preserve your surgical results. If you’re considering a mommy makeover but aren’t sure whether you’d like to have more children in the future, share your concerns with your surgeon during the consultation. He may recommend alternative procedures to safely give you the results you want.
Can a mommy makeover remove a C-section scar or stretch marks?
If a mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, it is likely that a C-section scar and stretch marks below the belly button can be improved or removed completely. Keep in mind, however, that the abdominoplasty will create a scar of its own. Our plastic surgeons are careful to place the abdominoplasty incision as low as possible where it will be effectively concealed by clothing and most swimwear.
