Motherhood demands a lot from women. During pregnancy, women have to give everything to each of their children and thereafter continue to put their children before themselves. By nature, mothers are caring and nurturing. Following pregnancy and childbirth as well as breastfeeding, there are many permanent physical changes that female bodies have to experience.

The different surgeries that can reverse the signs of postpartum changes include liposuction, breast lift, tummy tuck, and others. However, a holistic transformation of the mother’s body is only possible by performing a combination of all of these.

This blog talks about different cosmetic surgeries that fall under mommy makeovers performed at Eternelle Aesthetics and how they help make physical and mental changes in mothers.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover refers to the collection of plastic surgeries done for women after having children. It includes a combination of procedures that are either done all at once or in separate sessions as per the mother's needs and desires.

What’s Included In The Standard Mommy Makeover Package?


Liposuction is a minimally invasive technique that is used to eliminate undesirable stubborn fat from any part of the body. It is not a weight loss but a fat loss procedure that uses suction technology to remove fat. The removal of unwanted fat in the target area results in improved contours.

Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)

At the time of pregnancy and in postpartum women, diastasis takes place. To accommodate the baby in the mother’s womb, the abdominal skin, tissues, and muscles get stretched and even result in loose abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck surgery helps mothers achieve an hourglass figure that enhances the results of other surgeries and improves overall body contours. The surgery involves the excision of extra abdominal skin, removal of surplus belly fat by liposuction, and tightening of fascia using sutures.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

After pregnancy and especially following breastfeeding, the chest of mothers undergoes some irreversible changes. This includes loosening the skin of the breasts and even volume loss after their milk supply gets dried. As a result, breasts get deflated and smaller, positioned against the chest wall, rather than extending outwards. A breast lift can help a mother achieve perkier breasts. It can to some extent alter the breast's shape and projection. This surgery involves excision of the extra breast skin and reshaping of the breast tissues to raise the sagging breasts. During the operation, the downward-pointed nipples are shifted to a higher position on the breasts.

Breast Augmentation (Augmentation mammoplasty)

This surgery focuses on restoring lost breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. It even helps change the breast’s shape and projection. Together with breast lift, mothers can improve their looks. The surgery helps adjust for the reduction in the size of women's breasts after pregnancy by placing breast implants under the chest muscles or breast tissues.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Surgery

Vaginal rejuvenation surgery entails multiple surgeries to improve the shape, size, and function of the vaginal area. These surgical procedures are used to restore soft tissue structures that may have been causing discomfort and embarrassment for mothers. In addition, vaginal childbirth leads to the widening of the vaginal canal. The vaginal canal can get narrow again and tighter to have pleasurable sex with vaginal rejuvenation surgery. Different surgeries that can rejuvenate the vagina include vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, monsplasty, and labia majoraplasty.

Benefits of Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover surgery involves the integration of two or more aesthetic plastic surgeries to give mothers a chance to regain their youthful beauty. It delivers transformative results and mothers can achieve physical and mental relief; including:

  • Reduced expenses- Mothers who opt for mommy makeovers along with other related cosmetic surgeries just have to pay for relevant costs. The expenses cover the fees of anaesthesiologists and surgeons and surgical facility expenses.
  • Customized combination of surgeries- Mothers can choose mommy makeover packages that include relevant cosmetic surgeries that are needed by them. A tummy tuck surgery can allow mothers to have a flatter, more stable core. With breast augmentation, they can get back fuller, perkier breasts.
  • Boost in mother’s confidence and esteem- Mommy makeover surgical outcomes are lifelong. The procedures can address issues that can’t be corrected by other non-surgical alternatives or lifestyle changes. With improved body image after a mommy makeover, mothers can feel good about themselves again. This increases their self-esteem and confidence.

Recovery After Mommy Makeover

The recovery period of a Mommy Makeover Surgery in Hyderabad widely varies, depending on which procedures are chosen and any side effects/risks being experienced. Most mothers can resume work in about a month.

After mommy makeovers, mothers are likely to experience common side effects of surgeries. These include swelling, bruising, pain, tenderness, and scarring. For the recovery to go smoothly and to enjoy mommy makeover benefits, there is a need to follow some aftercare instructions provided by the surgeon. These include:

  • Get adequate rest and sleep
  • Do not expose surgical scars to sunlight or heat
  • Consistently wear compression garments, as advised by the surgeon
  • Keep your body well-hydrated and have nutritious meals
  • Avoid heavy weight lifting, even for kids, for 4-6 weeks
  • Walk to improve blood circulation for quick healing of surgical sites
  • Take proper care of surgical wounds.

Am I a candidate?

A mommy makeover may be considered if mothers are in good general health. It is meant for newly made mothers who wish to restore certain aspects of their physical appearance as before they stepped into motherhood.

It is typically recommended to avoid mommy makeover, if:

  • Planning for future pregnancies
  • Wanting to lose a significant amount of weight
  • Wanting to please someone else
  • Having postpartum depression
  • A smoker
  • Having diabetes
  • Clinically obese.
