What is Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover or Mommy Makeover can be defined as the set of procedures performed to correct the changes that occur in a woman's body after childbirth and restore the body to its prenatal appearance. The application process usually includes several different surgical procedures. Thanks to mommy makeover, sagging breasts, fat in the abdominal or hip area, swelling or stretch marks on the body can be corrected.

At the end of the childbirth and breastfeeding period, a specialised plastic surgeon makes the necessary assessments and eliminates the problems occurring in the body with a holistic surgery. Before mommy makeover, the patient's expectations and needs should be determined and the treatment process planned accordingly.

The question "What is mommy makeover?" can be briefly answered as follows: in mommy makeover, the negative effects of the birth process on the body are eliminated. In this way, psychological effects should be eliminated. Mommy makeover is recommended especially for mothers who cannot eliminate the problems of their postpartum body through sports or diet programs. Before the surgery can be performed, postpartum recovery and breastfeeding must be completed.

Operations Performed within the Scope of Mommy Makeover

Breast aesthetics, which includes breast reductions, breast augmentations and breast lifts, abdominoplasty, also called abdominoplasty, and liposuction with liposuction can be performed as part of mommy makeover. If needed, procedures such as labiaplasty to correct vaginal deformities, vaginoplasty to tighten vaginal muscles, or hip augmentation and hip lift can also be performed.

Breast Aesthetics

During breastfeeding, changes such as growth and shrinkage of breast tissue may occur. This causes the breast skin to lose elasticity. For example, when breastfeeding is completely over, sagging and loss of volume of the breast skin becomes visible. This situation can be corrected with a breast lift.

Breast lift can be performed with or without prosthesis. In breast lift without prosthesis, the nipple and the brown areola are moved upwards, the nipple is reduced in size if necessary and the sagging skin is tightened. In case of excessive volume loss, breast lift with prosthesis is used. The breasts are brought into an upright position with the help of prostheses inserted into the breast tissue. If breast augmentation is also sought during the surgery, larger prostheses or implants may be considered. Procedures such as breast augmentation do not have a negative impact on breastfeeding.

If the breasts have increased in volume during pregnancy and breastfeeding and were large before pregnancy, breast reduction can also be performed according to the patient's expectations. Although the milk ducts are not damaged during these procedures, it is necessary to wait until the breastfeeding process is complete before performing the operations. Since the uncertainty about the aesthetics of maternity discourages many women, it is of great importance to consult a plastic surgeon for all the details.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles open up as the baby grows in the womb. This leads to a slackening of the lower abdomen. This operation is divided into two variants: mini tummy tuck and full tummy tuck. In the mini tummy tuck, which is performed as part of the Mommy Makeover, the sagging and loose skin below the belly button is restored and the abdominal muscles are repaired if necessary. During a full tummy tuck, the abdomen is opened from the inside and the belly button is exposed. In this procedure, the sagging and looseness of the lower abdomen is removed, the belly button is realigned and the abdominal muscles are restored.

Abdominoplasty is one of the most commonly performed maternity aesthetic procedures. The deformity of the abdomen is eliminated and a taut appearance is created. Removal of excess fat from the abdominal area is also possible as part of mommy makeover. To see the results of the procedure, you can watch the before and after mommy makeover videos and photos.


After pregnancy, fat may accumulate in various areas of the body. Liposuction is usually performed on the arms, legs, hips and abdomen to clarify the body lines. If a tummy tuck is planned for aesthetic reasons, liposuction should be performed before this procedure. Liposuction is usually performed with cannulas. Contour correction can be performed mainly in the area of the flanks, which are located on the side of the abdomen. In addition, the recovery time after the procedure is extremely fast.

The labia dilate during childbirth. While the inner lips relax and lengthen, the outer lips become much more prominent. This leads to a disturbing appearance after childbirth. This disturbing image can lead to a loss of self-confidence and various psychological problems. During labiaplasty, which is performed as part of pregnancy aesthetics, the excess skin of the labia minora is removed and the vagina is given an aesthetic appearance. The recovery process after labiaplasty is fast.


Vaginoplasty, an aesthetic procedure in the genital area, is also called vaginal tightening. In this procedure, the back wall of the vagina, also called rectocele, can be repaired, and cystocele can also be included in this procedure if the urinary bladder is lowered. In addition to vaginoplasty, perineal scar correction, perineoplasty and urinary incontinence surgery can also be performed as part of genital mommy makeover if needed. It usually does not take long for the patient to return to her normal life after the procedures.

What Should Be Considered Before Mommy Makeover?

Although mommy makeover is a procedure performed after pregnancy, it is important to wait for certain conditions. Also, patients should know that mommy makeover procedures are performed to shape the body and not for weight loss. Other important points to know before maternity aesthetic procedures are:

  • It is recommended not to smoke for 4 weeks before mommy makeover, as it negatively affects the healing process.
  • If patients regain their pre-surgery weight or lose a large amount of the weight they gained during pregnancy, the success of the surgery increases.
  • Hormonally induced swelling of the breasts or milk ducts recedes after approximately 1 year; therefore, for breast-related surgery, 1 year must have passed after completion of breastfeeding.
  • Hormones must have returned to pre-birth levels.
  • There should be no health problems that affect the success of the surgeries.

Aesthetic applications in pregnancy usually involve more than one procedure in a single session. Therefore, patients must have a sufficient amount of blood. In cases where there is not enough blood, the surgeries are performed in 2 sessions 6 months apart.

Those who have undergone aesthetic maternity in Turkey comment positively on the success of the surgeries. Thanks to advanced health technologies, all procedures are performed risk-free and successfully, and women can achieve the desired pre-pregnancy appearance thanks to mommy makeover.

Healing Process After Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover includes procedures that are specifically tailored to the individual. Therefore, the healing process may vary from person to person. However, in order to speed up the healing process after mommy makeover, it is necessary to follow some important points. These points can be listed as follows:

  • After mommy makeover, patients should avoid physical activities that make them tired for 4 to 6 weeks. However, simple desk activities that do not cause fatigue can be performed.
  • Full recovery from mommy makeover usually takes 3 months. Therefore, heavy sports or exercise programs should not be started before this period.
  • Healthy diet is important to maintain the new look. Certain diet programs can even be followed. It is recommended that the diet after maternity aesthetic treatments should be based on protein, grains and vegetables.

Is lymphatic massage recommended after aesthetic maternity treatment and what are its benefits? Lymphatic massage can help make the waist and abdominal area much smoother, especially for patients who have undergone liposuction. After pregnancy aesthetics, 10 sessions of lymphatic massage are sufficient. Adherence to the exercise programs recommended by the plastic surgeon accelerates the recovery process after aesthetic surgery in the womb.

Things to Know About Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover applications that facilitate mothers to achieve their desired prenatal appearance raise many questions for many women. These questions are usually not limited to “What is a Mommy Makeover?” For example, there are many interesting questions, including the use of corsets, whether or not the remaining scars are permanent, whether or not bandages are required, and what situations may arise if you become pregnant again. The answers to all your questions about aesthetics in pregnancy can be summarised as follows:

Especially women who have undergone abdominoplasty or liposuction may need to wear a corset for a while. This is because the corset prevents blood or fluid accumulation by exerting pressure on the skin in the surgical area. Therefore, it is recommended to wear the corset for 6 weeks. If a breast lift, augmentation or reduction has been performed, a sports bra or breast band should be worn for a period of time.

Postoperative incision scars are covered with special bands that remain in place for 3 weeks. A bandage is not necessary in this case.

Incision scars after aesthetic maternity surgery are usually permanent.However, silicone gel or silicone covers are used to fade these scars and make them less visible. If you wear these covers for 3 months, the scars will fade.

It is possible to become pregnant again after an aesthetic maternity treatment. However, in this case, the aesthetic applications in the womb may be interrupted and revision procedures will need to be performed after the birth. This should be considered before becoming pregnant again.

For women, postpartum aesthetics is generally not a difficult decision. This is because the inconvenience caused by the shape of the body is much more disturbing. Successful completion of aesthetic applications after maternity has a positive effect on the psyche of the whole family, including the baby.

What are the Advantages of Mommy Makeover?

The explanations we have made above give enough idea about the advantages of maternity aesthetic applications. But generally speaking, mommy makeover brings the following advantages:

  • The changes of the body after pregnancy lead to a loss of self-confidence. Mommy makeover, on the other hand, helps women love their bodies more and regain their lost self-confidence.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding change both the abdominal muscles and the breast tissue. The aesthetics of motherhood make the breasts look younger.
  • Emotional difficulties that occur during childbirth can be overcome along with the physical changes.
  • The body lines that are distorted after pregnancy are balanced. In this way, a much more harmonious body structure is created.

The applications of mommy makeover are permanent. However, situations such as excessive weight gain or loss, new pregnancy, unhealthy eating habits, or the abandonment of sports and exercise programs shorten the life of these applications. Therefore, to achieve a longer-lasting effect, it is recommended to eat healthy and exercise regularly. This can be done through your own efforts or with professional support.

Mommy Makeover Prices

Prices for aesthetic treatments after childbirth depend on many factors. The most important of these factors is how many different treatments are to be performed together. For example, in some cases, a breast lift alone is sufficient, while in others, a holistic approach with tummy tuck and liposuction is required. In other words, it is not possible to directly quantify prices for mommy makeover.

Since each procedure depends on the health condition and physical structure of the person, the price of a single application may vary from person to person. Therefore, in order to know the prices for mommy makeover, you must first make an appointment with a plastic surgeon who is an expert in his field. After the examinations, it will be decided which operations should be performed, and after this decision, the cost of the operations can be determined.

Considering the gain after aesthetic maternity surgery, the price is secondary for most women. This is because the aesthetic result and increased self-confidence are priceless for many women. However, since the choice of plastic surgeon directly affects the success of the operations, it is important to make the right decision in this matter. This way you will be satisfied with the result and will not need revision surgeries. If you want to find out more about mommy makeover and plan the procedure, you can make an appointment right now.
