Mommy Makeover

While motherhood is one of life’s most rewarding experiences, it also leads to undesirable physical changes such as skin stretch marks, loss of breast volume and shape, the separation of your abdominal muscles, and the accumulation of fat deposits around the belly. These changes usually have a negative impact on a new mother’s sense of self-esteem and happiness. Luckily, plastic surgeons can help restore the youthful physique that you enjoyed before the pregnancy.

A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures that aim to address a new mother’s aesthetic concerns and deliver a youthful and proportional look. This treatment is specifically tailored to each patient’s needs, and most women who undergo it enjoy increased levels of self-esteem and self-confidence.

The surgeon understands that the needs of different women are unique and works to create a highly customized treatment plan to suit the needs of each mommy makeover patient.

Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a combination of different body contouring procedures that are performed together in order to improve undesirable physical changes that linger after a pregnancy. You may be a good candidate for this cosmetic treatment if:

  • You are in excellent physical and emotional health
  • You are at your ideal body weight
  • You are concerned about sagging breasts, a loose tummy, or other undesirable changes that stay on after a pregnancy
  • You have completed childbearing
  • You comprehend and understand the risks and rewards of this treatment

Dr. Harish Ghildiyal will reserve your first visit at his Medicraft Clinic to understand your needs and goals. The surgeon will listen to your concerns, ask questions, and learn about your medical history before letting you know whether this treatment is best for you. Since a mommy makeover is a highly individualized procedure, Dr. Harish Ghildiyal emphasize that each patient ensures they are having this surgery out of their own volition, not because someone else asked them to.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

In addition to rebuilding a new mother’s sense of self-worth, a mommy makeover has many other benefits:

Simultaneous Procedures

Often in a mommy makeover, plastic surgeons perform many different treatments at the same time. You may undergo a tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction all at the same time. This means there will be less hassles regarded to scheduling and billing, plus the reduced cost of the procedure. The combination of procedures means you will only need to undergo anesthesia once to achieve multiple goals. More so, there is less overall downtime as the patient can combine the recuperation time for all the different treatments.

Dramatic improvements

Because a mommy makeover involves many different procedures performed at the same time, patients experience a dramatic improvement in their body contour. You can knock out a flatter abdomen with a tummy tuck, perkier, more attractive breast appearance with a breast lift and/or augmentation, and improved contouring in any part of the body with liposuction.

Removal of Stretch marks

It goes without saying that pregnancy leads to stretch marks. This is due to the stretching of your skin that occurs as the baby is growing. If these become an embarrassment especially when you are at the beach or outdoors, Dr. Harish Ghildiyal can address this concern during the mommy makeover.

More Choice of Clothing

Following a pregnancy and childbearing, many women realize that finding the right clothing becomes more difficult. But once you undergo a mommy makeover, you suddenly can wear nearly anything you want to – from jeans that are tighter in the thighs and tops that suit your liking. This leads to improved confidence particularly when out in social situations.

Potential Core Strength Improvement

Because the muscles are repositioned to their optimal operating position, patients may potentially achieve a functional improvement of their core strength.

Bloating Decrease

Most surgery patients have a tummy tuck included in their list of procedures to be included in their mommy makeover. From a tummy tuck, patients may benefit from reduced bloating from the restoration of their abdominal muscle cylinder that counteracts intra-abdominal pressure.

Dr. Harish Ghildiyal bring a keen sense of professionalism to the operating table, finding a treatment regimen that will deliver the best possible outcome for each patient. The surgeon is also committed to patient experience and safety.

What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover

Depending on each patient’s problem areas, a mommy makeover can integrate any combination of the following procedures:

Breast Procedures

Many women choose to have a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction in order to address post-pregnancy changes. Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that increases the size and volume of breasts either using artificial implants or fat grafts. A breast lift – also referred to as mastopexy – addresses sagging and drooping breasts in order to achieve a perkier, more youthful appearance. Some women have macromastia (enlargement in the breast size) following pregnancy and breastfeeding. These women can benefit from breast reduction surgery, which addresses cosmetic and physical symptoms associated with overly large and heavy breasts.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty is often included in mommy makeover treatment regimen. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal removes excess fat from the abdominal area, as well as gets rid of excess skin and tightens the underlying musculature. This procedure helps create a firmer and flatter belly contour while also addressing stretch marks in this area.


Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to remove stubborn fat that doesn’t seem to respond to exercise and diet. This procedure can target nearly any part of the body and is usually combined with a tummy tuck or lower body lift in order to create a sleek and better-sculpted contour.

Lower Body Lift

This procedure aims to address sagging skin on the lower torso that tends to lead to a shapeless figure. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal will work to remove excess loose skin from the back, abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks. This mommy makeover procedure restores a slimmer and more attractive lower body physique.

Facial Procedures

Facial concerns such as wrinkles and lines can be easily addressed with injectables or fillers such as BOTOX, Juvederm, or Restylane. These are non-invasive treatments that can be completed within less than an hour, and often do not involve any downtime. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal typically recommends performing facial cosmetic treatments as a touch-up after the patient has recovered from the more extensive mommy makeover surgery.


During childbirth, some women may experience a labia tear leading to cosmetic differences and size of their labia. Labiaplasty is the surgical procedure to reduce elongated, enlarged, misshaped, and unequal labia sizes.

Dr. Harish Ghildiyal understand that new mothers are faced with a unique set of cosmetic concerns. While some women only need a breast lift and tummy tuck to restore a youthful contour, others will require a more expansive combination of procedures and techniques. Upon examining you, the surgeon will help select the best treatments to include in your mommy makeover.

Regardless of the different types of procedures that are required, the surgeon uses advanced surgical techniques in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
