Many women are happy to have children but aren’t as comfortable with what happens to their bodies after childbirth. Even after losing weight, many women struggle with abdominal bulge or areas of her body she is not entirely pleased with. In Mexico, there are mommy makeovers offered by certified plastic surgeons that provide a discount for the surgeries and include multiple procedures in one operation.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Entail?
The Mommy MakeOver (MMO) includes different types of procedures in one plastic surgery package. It helps with everything from getting rid of the last few inches, to giving the breasts a boost or improving the contour of your body. Different makeovers include various procedures through which some standard ones to choose from are liposuction, breast augmentation, vaginal rejuvenation, arm lift, Brazilian butt lift, and tummy tuck.
These are the areas of the body where most moms want to improve after having children. Women can usually pick and choose which procedures they need in their mommy makeover, and that will, of course, change the cost of it. Some women want a tummy tuck after losing baby weight and having loose abdominal skin while others want breast augmentation due to lack of volume following breastfeeding.
What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Many plastic and cosmetic surgeons are performing the Mommy Makeover to help moms get new-found confidence back in their bodies. The mommy makeover includes a few different plastic surgery procedures into one. It typically includes a Tummy Tuck, Breast Enhancement (a lift or augmentation).
- Tummy Tuck performed with diastasis recti repair, to tighten the belly and muscles
- Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation with or without implants
- Removing Excess Fat with Liposuction to Recontour the Body
One of the most common methods listed in the mommy makeover is abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck. This removes excess fat and loose skin from the abdomen, tightening it and allowing the abdominal muscles to be tightened and visible.
It also includes a breast lift, which lifts breasts that have lost their elasticity, or a breast augmentation for larger and fuller breasts. You may also want to get a vaginal rejuvenation procedure to improve the appearance of your genitals after having children.
Additional Procedures Sometimes Included in the Mommy Makeover
- Tightening of Skin
- Improve or remove Stretch Marks
- Treating Cellulite

Why Choose Mommy Makeover?
Because of the procedures included, women should ask themselves a series of questions before deciding if this would be a good option. This includes whether or not she wants more children in the future if she is done breastfeeding if she is finished losing weight, and which parts of her body have changed the most since having children.
If you are done having kids and aren’t breastfeeding anymore, it is a good time to consider having your makeover. You should also consider the scars caused by incisions, like breast lift/reduction, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, etc. Scars heal after a year or two, however, the degree of healing depends on factors such as nutrition, heredity, race, and smoking.
Mommy Makeover after Weight Loss Surgery
A mommy makeover after a major weight loss, such as weight loss surgery in Mexico, is a viable option for many patients. Bariatric surgery patients get loose skin after losing a massive amount of weight as well as undesirable fat pockets in the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms.
Mexico Bariatric Center patients choose trusted Mexico Cosmetic Center to receive their mommy makeover after they successfully lose the excess weight to restore their body and gain self-esteem.
What is the recovery time after mommy makeover?
Because multiple procedures are done for the mommy makeover, you should be prepared for several months of recovery time. Most of your recovery occurs within the first month after having surgery, but it may take 3-4 months to heal completely. You should follow all of your doctor’s aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing. You want to avoid heavy lifting, physical exercise, contact sports and sexual intercourse for up to six weeks after the surgery.
Look for signs of complications like redness, swelling, drainage, bleeding, or pain when it is much more severe than it was previously. Contact your doctor if these signs seem out of the ordinary. If you have younger children, it is also recommended that you have helped with lifting and caring for your kids for the first few weeks at least.
Wearing compression garments is a must right after Mommy Makeover surgery for at least 6 weeks. Compression garments reduce swelling and prevent lumps & bumps from forming during the recovery period. Also, lymphatic massage is advised to eradicate swelling and improve the feeling of tightness.
