What Is a “Full Mommy Makeover?”

Enjoy the Benefits of Comprehensive and Customized Body Sculpting in Nashville


Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, age, and hormone shifts are all factors that can lead to changes in body contours. A healthy diet and gradually resuming regular exercise can help to return a body to its pre-pregnancy shape, but the reality is that many physical changes linger long after having a baby.


Unfortunately, there are some things that diet and exercise alone can’t do, such as addressing loose skin or stretched muscles on the abdomen, new pockets of resistant fat in isolated areas, and a loss of volume or other changes in the breasts. Happily, what some patients would consider to be a “full Mommy Makeover” at Nashville Plastic Surgery Institute—including procedures for the breasts, abdomen, and other areas—provides comprehensive rejuvenation for patients who want to address the physical changes associated with pregnancy and more.

What Is a Full Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is designed to rejuvenate the areas that are most heavily impacted by pregnancy. This plastic surgery (sometimes called “mommy surgery” or a “mom body makeover“) offers a full body makeover to restore a post-baby body to its pre-pregnancy state as closely as possible.

There is no standard full Mommy Makeover after pregnancy, since the procedure is customized to fit each patient’s needs and goals. That said, many patients seeking a “full Mommy Makeover” treatment will include some combination of the following procedures: tummy tuck (also called a “mommy tuck”), breast lift or breast augmentation (“mommy breast surgery“), liposuction, and vaginal rejuvenation. Since the abdominal area is a problem for so many people, most full Mommy Makeover patients will need a full tummy tuck, which targets laxity both above and below the navel.

Liposuction 360 can be an especially important element for beautifully natural-looking Mommy Makeover results, since the procedure removes fat from not just the abdomen, but all around the midsection. By slimming the flanks and lower back, Dr. Jacob Unger allows the new curves and contours to blend seamlessly.

There are numerous benefits associated with what could be considered a full Mommy Makeover, including the fact that multiple problem areas can be improved in a single operation. In most cases, the surgery will include a combination of breast surgery techniques—whether augmentation, a lift, or a reduction—and a tummy tuck. The Nashville Plastic Surgery Institute team can help you choose the right timing and combination of procedures for your specific problem areas to achieve the best possible results from a complete Mommy Makeover.

Our team can explain more details about the preparation, recovery, and cost of a full body makeover with plastic surgery. As an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jacob Unger can show you full body makeover surgery before-and-after photos to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Who Is a Candidate for a Full Mommy Makeover?

Wondering whether you should search for a “Mommy Makeover near me?” The best candidates for a total Mommy Makeover include those who are in good overall health, are at a healthy weight, and—while it is not strictly necessary—should ideally be done having children. This is because pregnancy and childbirth can negatively impact areas that have been tightened, slimmed, lifted, and otherwise addressed by the surgery.

What Are the Full Mommy Makeover Procedure and Results?

A full Mommy Makeover is a single stage procedure that can involve any of a number of advanced techniques. Our team will provide guidelines on how to care for your surgical sites, medications that can be taken, any specific concerns to look for, and when to follow up after a full Mommy Makeover.

Wondering what to expect in terms of side effects after a Mommy Makeover? The recovery timeline will depend on the specific types of procedures that were included in your full Mommy Makeover. Swelling will subside gradually in the following weeks as you heal and the shape of the breasts, abdomen, or other areas improves. Any soreness will also resolve on its own over time.

What Other Cosmetic Surgery Options Are Available?

The procedures that are commonly included in a full Mommy Makeover—such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction—can also be performed separately. In addition to a total Mommy Makeover and these individual surgeries, Nashville Plastic Surgery Institute also offers cosmetic surgeries to rejuvenate other areas, such as Brazilian butt lift (BBL), body lift, arm lift, and thigh lift. Some patients decide to combine their full Mommy Makeover with facial cosmetic surgery such as a mini-facelift or eyelid lift, or with non-surgical injectable treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic to rejuvenate the face and create a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
