what does mommy makeover include?
The following surgeries are performed as needed:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Buttock augmentation

Here is a simplified detail of all operations:
The expansion of the stomach during pregnancy to accommodate the growth of the child leads to the emergence of the abdomen and the rupture of the tissues that connect the muscles of the woman’s abdomen permanently.
Abdominoplasty is the only way to treat the problems of the damaged abdominal muscles, which will not work with any type of exercise, where the surgeon links the abdominal muscles together correctly.
There are two types of a tummy tuck , the mini tummy tuck, which is to tighten the loose skin just below the navel, the incision be shorter, and the full tummy tuck is when there is excess fat and loose skin above the navel and the incision be a little longer.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding cause weight gain, which means an increase in fat cells in a woman’s body, which is often intractable to diet and sports.
Liposuction is the perfect solution for slimming and reshaping the women’s body proportion.
The surgeon determines the areas from which fat must be removed and the technique that will be used.
either vaser or Hi-Def liposuction by making small incisions in the targeted areas where a special cannula is inserted and then surgically sealing the incisions.
During milk production, the breasts expand and contract dramatically.
The breast augmentation procedure helps to correct the breast and restore the full tight breasts shape by either using breast implants or fat transfer.
In breast augmentation using implants, the surgeon makes an incision in the bottom line of each breast, creates a pocket inside them, and places the implant either underneath or the top of the pectoral muscle.
After breastfeeding, many women have eventually left with flatter, saggier breasts due to the stretching of the skin as a result of the breasts being filled with milk.
During a breast lift procedure, the surgeon removes the excess skin and reshapes the breast tissue to raise the breasts.
There are several techniques for performing breast lift surgery, either an incision is made around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease, or an incision around the areola is made, and vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease.
Then the excess breast skin is removed, the underlying tissue is lifted and the breast is reshaped, in addition to repositioning the nipple and areola to the appropriate height, which gives the breast a natural and more youthful appearance.
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, women are exposed to hormonal changes that lead to an increase in the size of their breasts. In addition, obesity is also an important factor in increasing their size.
In breast reduction surgery , the surgeon removes the excess fat and skin from the breasts using liposuction by making a small incision in the skin and inserting a thin tube to suction the fat from the breast.
Then the doctor makes an incision around the areola and down the middle of each breast to remove the excess skin. After that, the breasts are reshaped and the doctor makes sure of the proportions of symmetry between them, then the incisions are sutured.
Weight gain and loss during pregnancy and postpartum lead to changes in the buttocks area, and the prominent, full, and round butt is preferred by women because it enhances their self-image and self-confidence.
Buttock augmentation surgery improves the shape and size of the buttocks either by using buttock implants, which are silicone implants that are placed in the buttocks, or by injecting fat that has been removed from other areas of the body and then re-injecting again in the buttock after treatment and purification, and this is called a Brazilian butt lift.
Repeated childbirth causes stretching of the labia minora in women, which leads to their protrusion outside the labia majora, and this causes a feeling of embarrassment and discomfort, especially in sports and sexual activity.
In the labiaplasty procedure, the surgeon corrects this problem by carefully removing the excess skin from the labia minora and then stitching the area back together.
The occurrence of sagging in the arm area is annoying for women, especially after weight gain and loss due to pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, which generates a feeling of dissatisfaction and satisfaction.
Arm lift surgery addresses this problem, as the surgeon makes an “L” cut starting from the armpit and descending to the elbow to remove excess skin and then use stitches to close the incision.
After women gain and lose weight during pregnancy and breastfeeding, sagging skin in the thighs area is another problem that she faces.
The thigh lift is the best solution to get tighter thighs and a smoother feel, as this procedure involves removing excess skin from the inner and outer thighs.
The plastic surgeon may see a need to perform some facial surgeries such as eyelid lift, eyebrow lift, forehead reduction, or fat injection for fuller cheeks and a more fresh and youthful face without wrinkles.
