Most Popular Mommy Makeover Combinations

Are you a supermom who has devoted all your time and energy to your little ones? Balancing the demands of motherhood is no easy feat, so it’s natural to put your own needs on the back burner. But now, it’s time to focus on yourself and regain your confidence. 

If you’re struggling to get back in shape, the Gillian Institute can help you reclaim your pre-baby body with a Mommy Makeover, a personalized combination of procedures designed to address your exact concerns. Keep reading to learn more about the Mommy Makeover and the most popular treatment combinations for restoring your youthful contours. 

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Motherhood is an incredible journey, but it can leave its mark on your body. The Mommy Makeover is a tailored surgical approach designed to help you restore your pre-pregnancy physique. When it comes to your Mommy Makeover, you’re in charge — this versatile procedure is customized to address your unique concerns, whether you’re bothered by sagging breasts, stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, stretch marks or a flattened backside. By targeting multiple treatment areas at once, you can achieve comprehensive results and minimize your downtime with just one surgery and one recovery.

Benefits of Combining Procedures 

Your Mommy Makeover provides you with the opportunity to rejuvenate your body after the changes brought about by pregnancy, childbirth and nursing. However, one of the key advantages of this procedure is the ability to combine multiple surgeries into one comprehensive treatment plan. This provides you with several benefits, such as:

  • Comprehensive transformation — Pregnancy affects various areas of your body, and combining multiple procedures allows you to address all of these concerns at once. Whether it’s restoring breast volume, tightening abdominal muscles, removing excess skin, or contouring other trouble spots, a Mommy Makeover tackles multiple aesthetic issues in a single surgery. This comprehensive approach provides you with a whole-body transformation rather than focusing on isolated areas. 
  • One surgery, one recovery — With a Mommy Makeover, you undergo a single surgical session that combines multiple procedures tailored to your specific needs. Instead of separate surgeries with individual recovery periods, you have the advantage of recovering just once. This means less time spent away from your family, work and daily responsibilities, allowing you to get back to your busy life more quickly.
  • Synergistic results — Combining procedures in a Mommy Makeover can enhance your overall results. When multiple areas of the body are addressed simultaneously, the outcomes can be more harmonious and balanced. For example, pairing a tummy tuck with liposuction ensures a smoother and more contoured midsection. Combining a breast lift with implants can provide not only a lifted appearance but also increased volume and improved symmetry. These synergistic outcomes can create a more cohesive transformation and maximize the aesthetic benefits of each procedure.
  • Cost-effective solution — Opting for a Mommy Makeover that combines multiple surgeries can be a cost-effective solution compared to undergoing each procedure separately. By consolidating surgeries, you can potentially save on anesthesia and facility costs. Combining procedures into one surgical session also reduces the need for additional consultations and other pre-operative preparations.

A Mommy Makeover can provide you with comprehensive results while minimizing the downtime, recovery and costs associated with surgery. However, the key to getting the most out of your Mommy Makeover is to select a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Kimberly Short to perform the procedure. As an experienced surgeon and a mother of four herself, Dr. Short understands your concerns and can provide you with peace of mind knowing that you are in capable hands, allowing you to embrace the remarkable transformation that awaits you. 

Popular Mommy Makeover Combinations

Most Mommy Makeovers involve a combination of breast and abdominal procedures designed to restore your figure. However, your Mommy Makeover can include a number of different surgeries to help you reach your aesthetic goals, including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, liposuction, breast lift and more. Some of the most popular combinations that we’ve performed include the following procedures.

Restore a Perkier Bust: Breast Augmentation + Breast Lift

Following pregnancy, the breasts, in particular, undergo significant changes due to factors such as hormonal fluctuations, weight gain and nursing. Together, these effects can cause a loss of volume, sagging and a lack of firmness, leaving your breasts feeling flat and deflated. If you’re a mom who desires to restore your youthful bust and regain your self-confidence, the combination of breast augmentation and lift could be the perfect solution for you.

Breast augmentation is a procedure that uses implants to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. By adding volume, breast augmentation can restore the fullness that may have been lost due to pregnancy. Whether you prefer a subtle enhancement or a more noticeable change, breast augmentation allows you to achieve your desired breast size and contour, helping you feel more comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Similarly, a breast lift can address the issue of sagging breasts. This procedure involves removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue to lift and elevate sagging breasts to a more youthful position, restoring a firmer, rounder and perkier appearance.

When combined in a mommy makeover, breast augmentation and lift can work synergistically to reshape your bustline. These procedures not only restore lost volume but also address sagging, creating breasts that are fuller, more lifted and beautifully contoured. This popular mommy makeover combination allows you to regain your pre-pregnancy silhouette.

Sculpt a Flatter Midsection: Tummy Tuck + Liposuction

Pregnancy and childbirth can lead to stubborn fat in key problem areas such as the stomach, hips and thighs. It can also stretch the abdominal muscles and create the appearance of an unflattering belly “pouch” that you can’t seem to get rid of. In most cases, these concerns don’t respond well to diet or exercise, but they can be effectively addressed by one of the mommy makeover’s most popular treatment combinations: liposuction and a tummy tuck.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that targets localized deposits of fat to help you achieve a more contoured and sculpted figure. It is most commonly performed on the hips, thighs, abdomen, arms or back and permanently removes unwanted fat in treated areas as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. In addition to using traditional techniques, Dr. Short also utilizes ultrasound-assisted liposuction to aid in skin contraction for the most flattering results.

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, eliminates excess skin and tightens weakened abdominal muscles to create a smoother, firmer and more toned midsection. By combining a tummy tuck with liposuction, your surgeon can improve the appearance of a sagging belly while sculpting slimmer contours to help you regain a flatter, firmer midsection.

Enhance Your Curves: Brazilian Butt Lift + Thigh Lift

Pregnancy can also bring about changes to your thighs and buttocks. If you’re looking to enhance your curves and regain a shapelier figure, including a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) and thigh lift as part of your Mommy Makeover can help re-sculpt your lower body.

After having children, your buttocks may lose their youthful shape and fullness, resulting in a flatter or less defined appearance. A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that uses excess fat from other areas of the body to create a rounder and more lifted backside. Using this natural fat transfer technique, a BBL can restore a more curvaceous figure. 

In addition to the Brazilian butt lift, a thigh lift can address loose, sagging skin and excess fat in the thigh area to improve the overall shape and tone of your legs. When combined with a BBL as part of your Mommy Makeover, these procedures can restore your confidence and help you regain a more proportionate and balanced lower body contour.

Nonsurgical Alternatives: CoolSculpting + BodyTone

In addition to popular procedures like breast augmentation or liposuction, your Mommy Makeover can also incorporate nonsurgical alternatives like CoolSculpting and BodyTone to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. These treatment options offer a noninvasive way to further contour your body with little to no downtime or recovery.

CoolSculpting is a popular nonsurgical treatment that uses advanced cooling technology to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat cells. This innovative procedure targets specific areas of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, flanks or arms, to help reduce unwanted bulges and contour your silhouette. CoolSculpting is particularly beneficial for moms with localized areas of excess fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

BodyTone is an innovative treatment that utilizes advanced electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions, helping to tone, strengthen and sculpt your muscles in treated areas. BodyTone is a highly customizable procedure and can help you achieve enhanced muscle tone and definition in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs or arms.

By including CoolSculpting or BodyTone as part of your Mommy Makeover, you can further refine and sculpt your body without the need for surgery or downtime. These procedures are performed in a comfortable office setting, with most patients returning to their normal activities immediately after treatment. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, both CoolSculpting and BodyTone can provide you with the long-lasting results you desire.
