Giving birth and holding your bundle of joy is a beautiful thing. However, you may notice changes in your body, curves, and breasts. These changes can lower your self-esteem and confidence. Working out combined with a proper diet can mitigate these changes for some, but not always. This is where a Mommy Makeover procedure comes in handy to restore your body goals.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of various surgeries tailored to your preferences. It can be highly customized to meet your individual body goals, and may include a mixture of procedures to help you look and feel your best.

Common Reasons for a Mommy Makeover

The childbearing process leaves many women struggling with different changes in their bodies. These changes can hurt your self-esteem and lose your confidence over time. Women go for Mommy Makeover for the following reasons:

• Flatten the tummy

• To get perky, firm breasts

• To enlarge breasts

• To boost self-confidence

• To look sexy and shapely

What Procedures Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?

The Mommy Makeover process involves the following procedures.

Breast Augmentation

With changes in hormone levels and weight changes during pregnancy, the breast skin may enlarge, making your breast slightly deflated. Breast augmentation by Dr. Rivela is meant to increase your breasts’ symmetry, size, and fullness. Different sizes and types of implants and incisional techniques exist, but your doctor will choose what’s best for you.


This minimally invasive procedure is designed to remove fat in stubborn places. With liposuction, you can achieve a customized silhouette that’s hard to accomplish with workouts and diets. However, this is not a weight loss surgery, but the fat removed can improve your contours.

Breast Lift

Breasts change shape, especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding. The aging process also contributes to the skin losing elasticity, making your breasts succumb to gravitational pull. A breast lift will reduce the skin envelope and reposition the nipple and areola to a natural anatomical position. Usually, this procedure is executed in conjunction with breast augmentation or reduction.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

This procedure focuses on improving the size, function, and shape of your vaginal area. It will restore the soft tissue structures that make you feel embarrassed and uncomfortable. Labiaplasty is performed to reduce and improve the size of the labia minora which can become enlarged and lax from childbirth.

Tummy Tuck

Pregnancy can permanently change your body, especially your abdomen. Weight fluctuation over a short period can leave your tummy tissues and skin overstretched, and can also cause separated abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can tighten the abdominal area for a smoother, firmer tummy.

Am I a Candidate for Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a highly tailored surgery. It means you should do it to fulfill your desires, not anyone else’s. You’re a candidate for a mommy makeover if:

  • You’ve finished having children.
  • You’re at or close to an ideal body weight.
  • You’re not a heavy drinker or smoker.
  • You have realistic expectations for the results.
