At Athenix, we work to help women to restore the body and breasts after pregnancy with a custom mommy makeover. If you are one of the many women that dream of having a firm, youthful figure once again, we are here to help you achieve what you envision.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a term used for a set of procedures. Each is chosen to address the individual concerns of the woman, and could involve several, or just one of the following:
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
- Liposuction or other body sculpting procedure
- Stretch mark removal
What procedures will you need to restore your pre-baby body? Only a personal consultation will reveal exactly what will be needed in your case. We are confident that at Athenix, our surgeons can perform every necessary procedure in a mommy makeover, with skill and an eye for creating the most beautiful, natural result.

At Athenix, we are very proud of the quality and precision of our board certified plastic surgeons, and for the stunning results we achieve in our mommy makeover procedures.

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you are at a healthy weight and struggle with a damaged body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, you are probably a candidate for our mommy makeover. It is important that you are in good general health and can safely undergo surgery. Your entire medical history will be evaluated – we always focus on patient health and safety, whether performing extensive surgery, or a non-surgical procedure.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
As each mommy makeover is customized to treat all of the body areas of the individual damaged by pregnancy, the cost will vary. We do offer some affordable payment options, so you can take advantage of the procedure as soon as you can. Our friendly, supportive administrative staff will guide you through the process. Everything we do is centered around you, the patient, including working out the financial issues with you, with care and friendly service.
How Long Will It Take For Me To Recover From a Mommy Makeover?
It is advised that you plan three to four weeks off to recover following your mommy makeover, particularly if you are undergoing several procedures. The body requires time to heal, but it varies person to person. Some women may feel well enough to return to work or other activities within ten days or two weeks, while others require longer. Your healing time (which is individual), along with the number of procedures you had, will affect the length of time you need to recover following your mommy makeover. The results are well worth the short wait – you will once again have a body that you are proud to show off!
Mommy Makeover: Frequently Asked Questions
If you struggle with a saggy tummy zone, excess skin, or droopy, deflated breasts, something can be done about it. We are always available to answer your individual questions but have answered some of the common questions we hear about the treatment.
Will I Look Like I Did Before I Had Children?
The idea of a mommy makeover is to fully restore the pre-baby figure. Your breasts will once again be full, rounded, and firm, with nipple facing forward in a youthful manner, with tummy no longer marred by sagging skin and tissue. Many of our patients think they look better than they did before having children! The results of the procedure are geared to restore a firm, trim, youthful figure, free of sagging skin, tissue, and excess fat, with breasts that look fresh and firm.
Can I have a Mommy Makeover Without Surgery?
At Athenix, our board-certified plastic surgeons we offer a full range of treatments, from surgical to non-surgical for your mommy makeover. If a non-surgical treatment will achieve your goals, we will be glad to inform you. Skin tightening, skin firming, and body sculpting treatments are all available at our clinic. For some women, surgery is the only way to achieve the breast and body restoration envisioned. With a personal consultation and an evaluation of your individual body issues, we can inform you of the procedures we believe would be the best way to restore your body to a pre-baby condition during your mommy makeover procedure.
What Happens on the Day of Surgery?
You will be scheduled for surgery at clinic, and arrive in the early morning, free from makeup or other products, wearing loose, comfortable clothing, with a front opening on your top. Most mommy makeovers are performed with general anesthesia, for your own comfort, and because several procedures will be performed. After surgery, you will awaken from anesthesia, but will be groggy. Once you feel well enough, you can return home, driven by a friend or family member. Ensure you have filled your prescriptions before your appointment – you will want to return home to sleep and recover.
Can I Have More Children After a Mommy Makeover?
You could, but it is advised that you do not undergo this procedure until you are done having children. Your body could once again suffer damage if you have children after you have completed a mommy makeover, requiring another surgery, so we advise waiting.
How Long Before I can Engage in Sex After a Mommy Makeover?
Following your mommy makeover, you will be restricted from any vigorous activity for two weeks at least, including sexual activity. As the procedure often includes an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), your incisions need time to heal and settle. You will need to be gentle on your body for at least a month or longer.
Will My Body Look Like It Did Before Having Children?
Your body goes through many changes during life, including massive changes in pregnancy. The goal of a mommy makeover is to achieve a look that is firm, taut, and youthful. Many of our patients say they look even better than they did before having children. Talk to us about what you hope to achieve. We listen, we hear you, and we are known for achieving exceptional results at Athenix.
