Summary: Contrary to what some people might think, a mommy makeover isn’t a single surgery. Instead, it’s a combination of procedures that can bring out the best features in each woman’s body, while addressing any concerns she may have. Here are four ways to customize your mommy makeover in order to enjoy the most beautiful, flattering results.

Include Breast Lift with Augmentation

Changes in breast shape or overall volume loss are common reasons for women to consider getting breast implants as part of a mommy makeover. However, sometimes boosting cup size isn’t enough to restore that high, perky look that’s so often the goal of breast enhancement. Including a breast lift along with implants is a popular way to correct droopiness during breast augmentation. A breast lift reshapes existing tissue for a prettier profile and firmer feel. When implants are added at the same time, the result is a fuller, more youthful-looking figure.

Combine Liposuction with Tummy Tuck

Liposuction and tummy tucks can both redefine your midsection for a slimmer, smoother silhouette. However, liposuction only removes fat, so any concerns over separated abdominal muscles (which are common after pregnancy or significant weight loss) or excess skin need to be resolved with a tummy tuck instead. Combining procedures delivers the best of both worlds: the tummy tuck creates a toned, trim belly again, while liposuction fine-tunes your abdomen and surrounding areas for very natural-looking contours. In short, the best tummy tuck results are seen when lipo is included at the same time.

Combine Breast Procedures with Body Procedures

Pregnancy and childbirth affect many different areas of the body, which is exactly why the mommy makeover is custom-tailored to the individual. Choosing one procedure or another only addresses a single concern, which is why it’s much more common (and more effective) to combine breast and body treatments for a total transformation. This could mean getting liposuction at the waistline along with breast implants to enhance a natural hourglass. Or, you could combine a tummy tuck plus a breast lift for a figure that looks shapelier, slimmer and more youthful from head to toe without implants.

Refresh Your Appearance for a Finishing Touch

Finally, don’t forget that the evidence of facial aging can be just as much of a concern as changes throughout the body. Facial rejuvenation treatments can help you look refreshed and revitalized in a way that perfectly complements your other mommy makeover procedures:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic injections temporarily relax facial muscles in the target area, allowing existing lines to fade and soften while simultaneously slowing the development of new dynamic wrinkles.
  • Injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM® or RADIESSE® can diminish the appearance of laugh lines, or give your lips a sexy, subtle boost.
  • Medical-grade skin care allows you to adopt a nourishing routine that gives maturing skin all the support needed to age gracefully, while helping to slow and repair many of the visible signs of facial aging.

What’s Right for You?

There’s no one right answer when developing a plan for your mommy makeover. For some women, even a quick BOTOX® treatment can be enough to put a new bounce in their step, while others benefit from breast implants, a tummy tuck or both. The number one goal should be to take steps that help you feel radiant and self-confident with your appearance, and combining procedures in the right way is a great way to help you achieve that goal.
