Mommy Makeover – Your Chance At A Better “You” in 2020

Becoming a mother is one of the greatest joys a woman can ever experience in her life. It is a beautiful feeling and an exhilarating adventure which lasts a lifetime. Motherhood is a new chapter where a woman shoulders new responsibilities along with her existing ones. She already was a wife and a daughter in law but now she is also a mother. All of these heavy-duty roles take a toll on the body of the woman.  

Doctors and scientists have concluded that a woman’s body undergoes a lot of stress post-pregnancy. This alters the structure of the woman’s body in such a manner that she is unable to regain her original pre-pregnancy body. Many women have tried crazy diets and intense workouts but the results have been nowhere close to what they want. 

If you too are one of those women who is feeling frustrated with the way your body seems to have changed permanently after pregnancy, then this blog about Mommy Makeover is for you. 

What Is A Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is one of the fastest growing set of cosmetic procedures that mothers of all ages opt for to restore their body to its original shape. As a plastic surgeon in Lucknow, I have seen many women opt for this course of treatment with fantastic results. 

A Mommy Makeover essentially covers the most affected areas of the body such as the breasts, the stomach and the vagina. Pregnancy causes volume loss of the breast, laxity of anterior abdominal wall muscles, lax abdominal wall and alteration in the private parts. Breastfeeding affects the shape of the breasts and the muscles end up sagging after this phase. The abdominal muscles become enlarged during pregnancy as the child grows in the womb. After the child is born, the abdominal muscles, the skin and tissue located there become loose. These are the main causes of concern on which a mommy makeover focuses. 

What Are The Treatments Covered Under Mommy Makeover?

The following surgical procedures are covered under a Mommy Makeover:
Breast Lift 
This treatment is a breast lift surgery which raises the sagging breasts by removing the excess tissue in the breast and tightening the core muscles. A breast lift surgery helps in restoring a woman’s breasts to its pre-pregnancy shape. 

Breast Augmentation
As discussed above, a woman’s breasts may reach a point where there is a volume loss due to breastfeeding. Many women have observed that they come down a full cup size by the time breastfeeding ends. Breast augmentation surgery is performed to increase the volume of the breasts. A plastic surgeon can perform a breast augmentation surgery in India by adding silicon implants to the breasts or by transferring fat from another part of the body to the breasts. The end result is natural-looking, full breasts. 

Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure wherein the patient’s breast size is reduced by removing the excess breast fat and glandular tissue. A breast reduction surgery lets a woman retain the correct size of breasts which is in proportion to the rest of her body. 

Tummy Tuck
Our tummy tuck procedure is one of the most popular ones in the mommy makeover category. Loose abdominal muscles and skin is an issue faced by almost all women after pregnancy. The skin on the stomach refuses to go back to its original shape even after a lot of concentrated efforts. A tummy tuck is a simple surgical procedure where the surgeon removes the excess fat and skin on the abdomen giving the stomach a firm and sharp look. 

 Liposuction is an advanced and safe surgery which removes excess fat anywhere in the body, to give the body a sculpted look. 

This is a procedure for restoring the patient’s private parts to their original pre-pregnancy shape. This a 100% safe medical procedure and is known to have wonderful results. It eliminates any discomfort a woman may feel due to the changes that occur after a pregnancy. 

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Mommy Makeover?

Any healthy woman whose body has undergone major changes due to pregnancy is eligible for a Mommy Makeover. 

Please note that women who are still breastfeeding their babies and women who smoke are not eligible for this treatment. 

Who Is The Right Doctor For A Mommy Makeover?

1. According to Indian laws, only a doctor who is an M.Ch/DNB in Plastic Surgery is permitted to perform the above discussed procedures.

2. Talk to some of his past patients and read online reviews of his clinic to understand what his past patients have to say about him.

3. Review your own level of comfort when you are with him. Ask yourself whether you trust him or not before making a decision.

4. Check his clinic, the technology and infrastructure he uses to perform surgeries.

What happens during the consultation?

A sit-down consultation with your doctor is very important before opting for a Mommy Makeover. You can discuss your expectations from the treatment with the doctor and create a plan of action for the same. The doctor will help you in visualizing the end results realistically. Do not feel shy to ask any questions to your doctor. A Mommy Makeover is a life-changing surgery, so it is better to get all your doubts cleared well in advance. 
Depending on the number of procedures you are choosing to undergo, a schedule will be set up for your surgeries. Talk to the doctor in detail about what needs to be done before and after the treatment. 

What is the post-operative care and recovery time?

The recovery time for a Mommy Makeover varies from patient to patient. Since all the surgeries are tailormade and packaged together depending on your needs. Generally, the recovery time is estimated to be 2-3 weeks. 

The doctor will prescribe medication for reducing pain, swelling and inflammation. Take your medication on time every day for minimizing health issues. The doctor will advise you to avoid heavy lifting and intense workouts while you recover from the makeover. Please follow this advise 100% for your own well being. 

Apart from this, there may be some special instructions given to you for your speedy recovery and best possible results. 

What Is The Cost Of Mommy Makeover?

It is very difficult to answer this question because a Mommy Makeover is a bouquet of surgeries that are performed to restore your body. The total cost of a Mommy Makeover will vary from patient to patient based on the number of surgeries they undergo. It is better to get a realistic estimate from your doctor since it will be personalized for you. 

Does Medical Insurance Cover A Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic procedure and therefore by definition is eliminated from the purview of a medical insurance policy. 

What Are The Risks Associated With  A Mommy Makeover?

Some of the risks associated with a mommy makeover are:

1. Susceptible to infections
2. Bleeding
3. Numbness or loss of sensation in areas where the surgery is performed
4. Asymmetry or disproportionate breasts
5. Persistent pain
6. Permanent and visible scarring
7. Implant leak
8. Unfavourable results

There are very low chances of these risks becoming reality, but it is important that you are aware of all the risks before you undergo the treatment.


Undergoing a Mommy Makeover is a personal choice made by many women these days to restore their bodies to the perfect pre-pregnancy shape. A good body instills confidence in one’s mind allowing you to face the challenges of life, head-on. Being a mother is a huge responsibility, but that doesn’t mean you put yourself off your own priority list. With a Mommy Makeover, you are prioritizing your own physical and mental well being, which in turn helps you become a better mother and a better wife!
