What is a Mommy Makeover?
For most women, giving birth can be a beautiful (albeit exerting) experience. However, it is an almost unspoken truth that the physical results of childbirth can lead to a significant loss of confidence, as the body is noticeably affected by the pregnancy process.
Fortunately, mommy makeovers exist to address all the parts of the body that are most affected by pregnancy. In essence, a mommy makeover refers to a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures that result in the rejuvenation of a more youthful, tighter, and flattering female figure.
Typically, a mommy makeover will include breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction procedures. Other components might also include the removal of fat grafting to the buttock, laser removal of unwanted hair, stretch mark reduction, and cellulite treatment. By the end of a mommy makeover, patients can expect a welcome return to stunning body shape and contour!
Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, proper physical health, and realistic expectations can make the recovery process more seamless. Fundamentally, a candidate for a mommy makeover is someone who wants to achieve significant improvement in figure, shape, and form after bearing children.
However, please note that mommy makeovers are not recommended for patients with illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension. We invite all those interested in this procedure to reach out to Toronto Plastic Surgeons for a consultation

Risks of a Mommy Makeover
Like every surgery, a mommy makeover comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted surgeon. The team at Toronto Plastic Surgeons has years of experience performing mommy makeovers. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.
- Infections: Even though infections are rare, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons still take every precaution to ensure that the procedure is a smooth, seamless experience. Preventative antibiotics are provided.
- Adverse Anesthesia Effects: In some cases, the anesthesia used in the surgery can have an adverse effect on the patient. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons carefully review the medical history of every single patient that walks through their doors and ensure, where necessary, a board-certified anesthesiologist is also caring for you during the surgery.
- Contour Irregularities: In cases where patients do not obtain the results they were looking for, a follow-up procedure can be scheduled to ensure adequate body contour.
- Bruising: Bruising is typically very moderate, but can occasionally be visible after the surgery.

How to Prepare for a Mommy Makeover
To ensure a successful surgery, the doctor will advise that you follow certain preparations in the weeks leading up to your procedure date:
- Smoking should be discontinued two weeks leading up to the procedure and two weeks after. Those who continue to smoke will have a longer recovery period and a greater likelihood of complications.
- Two weeks before your procedure, patients must cease taking Aspirin or any medication that contains Aspirin.
- Six hours prior to surgery, patients must stop consuming any food or drink. Small sips of water are permitted, however.
- Avoid sun damage two weeks before surgery. This can be achieved by wearing sunscreen.
- To ensure that your breasts have reached their final shape and size at the time of surgery, it is recommended that patients book their surgery up to six months after they stop breastfeeding.
What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover
Following your mommy makeover, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will give you detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a seamless recovery. Please keep in mind that you will be required to wear a tight-fitting compression garment around the breasts and abdomen for several weeks, as its presence will reduce swelling and tighten the skin. Throughout the recovery period, patients will be evaluated by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons to ensure that the healing process is smooth and seamless.
Mommy Makeover Recovery & Timeline
Week 1: There is a notable reduction in swelling and bruising.
Week 3: Patients are allowed to return to work and resume non-strenuous activities. At this point, patients may also stop wearing their compression garments.
Week 6: Strenuous activities can be resumed, including those that involve the pectoral muscles.
Week 12: Patients begin the second phase of their mommy makeover journey. During this phase, patients undergo non-surgical skin tightening and muscle toning procedures, at no additional cost.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How painful is it to get a Mommy Makeover?
Due to the anesthesia administered during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. While it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. In fact, the post-op discomfort is more external (muscle) than typical internal organ surgical pain, and can be easily controlled with oral medication prescribed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons.
Can someone get a Mommy Makeover if they’ve never had children?
Absolutely. The surgeries and procedures involved in a mommy tummy tuck are not exclusive to women who have experienced childbirth. Weight loss, without children, can also result in skin laxity and loss of breast volume, with persistent, stubborn areas of fat.
Can I have a Mommy Makeover if I will have more children?
If you’re planning on having more children within 2-5 years you should probably wait, as pregnancy may reverse the effects of a mommy makeover.
