What is a Mommy Makeover?
At Forma Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, our team of plastic surgeons regularly meet with women who want to get their pre-pregnancy body back. While childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it can significantly change the shape of various body parts and cause frustration. The great news is that you can reclaim a slim and taut appearance, thanks to the assistance of the mommy makeover. The mommy makeover uses a blend of liposuction, skin removal, and skin tightening to reshape the breasts, tummy, and lower body. Basically, we can treat any part of the body affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding.

What to Expect with a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover works well for women who have gone through childbearing and have tried to attain a toned, slimmer body with a healthy lifestyle but have had little success. Many new moms often need surgery to reclaim their pre-pregnancy shape. If you have completed childbearing, but you feel displeased with the effects remaining on your body, the mommy makeover can help address:
- Deflated, sagging breasts
- Wrinkled skin in the abdominal area
- Unwanted fat tissue in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks
A mommy makeover is a custom treatment that our board-certified plastic surgeons tailor for each woman. Based on the areas of concern, we can combine many procedures, like a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or liposuction. No matter the combination of treatments, patients receive general anesthesia, and the surgery can last 3 – 7 hours. The time increases based on how many procedures we complete during your surgery. In some cases, patients may need an overnight stay at the hospital for careful monitoring.
Once leaving the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with plenty of rest. The overall recovery period is a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight is difficult for the first couple of weeks. Most patients find the healing process can last about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients may resume their regular routine within several weeks. However, exercise should wait for about two months.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
In your consultation with Dr. Yao, he will understand your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can make recommendations on what to include in your mommy makeover. Typically, women select a breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) together with liposuction and a body lift.
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary greatly depending on which procedures are part of your surgery. In your consultation, Dr. Yao will develop your treatment plan, and then he can estimate your costs. A mommy makeover is about reclaiming your body after pregnancy and childbirth, so it is important to focus on getting the results you want rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Forma Plastic Surgery accepts many payment options, and we give you information on finding low-interest medical financing so your mommy makeover is easy to afford.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover offers a rejuvenated shape, it does leave some scarring. Dr. Yao will make clean, small incisions. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. When reviewing your recovery care instructions, Dr. Yao or a member of his team will go over scar care so your sutures heal and fade.
