Having a baby changes your life completely. Late-night cocktails become late-night feedings. Clutches and heels are swapped out for diaper bags and shoes with enough traction to chase a toddler. Motherhood brings a new set of challenges and a whole new reason to love your amazing body. It brought your baby into this world and it’s given you the strength to care for your new little one.
But your body isn’t all about baby. Your body is your own, and sometimes after pregnancy it can feel a little foreign. Your tummy might feel bigger, your breasts might not have the perky look they used to and you may notice pockets of fat that even hours of cardio can’t touch. If you’re ready to declare your independence from your post-baby body, here are four post-pregnancy plastic surgery options that can help you look and feel your best.
1. Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover can be a wonderful option to help you reclaim your post-baby body and feel your best. It’s right there in the name of the procedure: a mommy makeover can help you transform your body after pregnancy through an array of surgical procedures tailored to your specific concerns.
With the help of your plastic surgeon, you’ll determine which areas of your body you want to improve and how to achieve the results you want through a combination of tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction. These procedures, in a mix determined by you and your surgeon, can help you achieve independence from your post-baby body.
2. Breast Enhancement
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, you may feel as though your bust looks and feels different. Breast feeding in particular can cause a change in the shape and density of your breasts. If you’re feeling self-conscious about changes in your chest, breast enhancement can boost your spirits again.
- A breast lift can raise and reshape fallen or droopy breasts
- Breast implants can restore lost volume
- Breast reduction surgery can restore a proportionate look to your figure
A breast lift can also be combined with implants for more comprehensive results, helping you look and feel as good as, if not better than, you did before baby.

3. Tummy Tuck
The region most mommies are concerned with after pregnancy is their midsection. Having a baby can drastically change the landscape of your tummy in a way that even returning to your healthy diet and exercise regimen might not be able to fix. A drain-free tummy tuck can help to remove any excess skin and fat deposits without the need for post-surgical drains. The procedure can be customized by your plastic surgeon to tackle your specific areas of concern, leaving you with the smooth, post-pregnancy belly you desire.
Another post-pregnancy plastic surgery option to handle those love handles and smooth out any leftover lumps and bumps from baby is liposuction. If there are specific areas of stubborn fat you want to take care of, the precision and efficacy of liposuction could be your solution. Liposuction’s targeted effects can help to contour and reshape your body, spot reducing stubborn fat deposits that never seem to respond to exercise. It’s not just for your post-baby tummy, either. Liposuction can be used to reshape arms, thighs, bra bulge and chin areas as well.
