What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures chosen specifically to help patients who have had children and wish to get closer to their pre-pregnancy body where exercise alone can not accomplish.

Common procedures include:

  • Breast augmentation – The most popular procedure in 2019, implants are inserted into the breasts to increase size and shape. A similar enhancement can be achieved using fat transfer to the breast.
  • Breast lift – Breast tissue is altered to provide natural shape and a higher position for a youthful look.
  • Tummy tuck – The abdominal area is flattened and firmed by removing excess skin and tightening muscles.
  • Mini tummy tuck – Only the loose tissue and muscle below the navel is altered in a mini version of the tummy tuck.
  • Liposuction – Also often called the gold standard in body contouring – fat is removed from certain parts of the body using a variety of techniques.
  • Brazilian butt lift – Unwanted fat is removed from other parts of the body, treated, and redeployed into certain areas of the buttocks for a rounder, more pleasing and natural shape.

Popular combinations include a tuck and lift, lipo and augmentation, a mini-tuck and augmentation, and a lift paired with a Brazilian butt lift, which adds volume to a sagging backside to make it shapelier.


Practically any woman of a healthy and managed weight can have a Mommy Makeover. We recommend that the patient has completed her childbearing before proceeding with a Mommy Makeover and has waited at least six months after giving birth or finishing breastfeeding.

Is There an Advantage to Getting Several Procedures at Once?

During consultations for a Mommy Makeover, Los Angeles women often inquire about the safety of having multiple procedures done in one surgery. There have been a number of studies that indicate there is not a significant increase in the number of complications after combination procedures compared with single-procedure surgeries. There is also a benefit to a single period of recovery after surgery instead of several single-procedure surgeries.

Also, consider the significant savings in doing several procedures at once, since you’ll only incur a single charge for overhead costs like anesthesia and operating room expenses. Overall Mommy Makeover cost will depend on the full scope of the surgeries performed.

The single most important factor when considering a Mommy Makeover in the Los Angeles area is the surgeon. Choose a surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery and highly experienced in multi-procedure surgery. Then give your body the tune-up it deserves.

    How much does a mommy makeover cost in Beverly Hills?

    Every surgery is different, and therefore this influences pricing. We offer several payment options, and the ability to finance your treatment with a full range of extended payment plans through CareCredit®.

    Can a mommy makeover be performed in a single operation?

    A Mommy Makeover can be done in one or two stages, depending on the procedures chosen. They may be done in one surgery together, or at two separate times.

    How long do I need to recover?

    Depending on your procedures, you can typically return to performing non-physical jobs and activities in two to three weeks. Most patients can return to full activity levels within one to two months after their Mommy Makeover.

    When is the best time to get a Mommy Makeover?

    This is mainly a personal choice. If you are planning on having more children within the next year or so, we would recommend not pursuing an aggressive Mommy Makeover procedure at this time. If you are not sure about having more children, then this would be discussed on a case by case basis. Most women get great satisfaction from a Mommy Makeover procedure and may want to pursue this sooner.
