A One-Stop Solution

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeovers are multiple procedures done at once that reverse the adverse effects of post-childbirth. Giving birth can cause loose, flabby stomach skin, weight gain, sagging breasts, overly enlarged breasts, and the tearing or enlargement of the labia minora. Mommy Makeover procedures differ for each patient’s needs. Procedures can include:

Most patients are able to get two or three of these procedures done at once, making it the Mommy Makeover. Dr. Santosa can help you determine the best course of action for your Mommy Makeover during your consultation.

Reversing and Restoring

What can a Mommy Makeover do?

Mommy Makeovers can restore youth and bring life back to parts of the body that have been made less flattering after childbirth. Candidates for Mommy Makeovers include individuals who have had children and suffered from unflattering effects on the body, including drastic changes to the breasts, stomach, and labia minora. In addition, you should be in good health with no underlying medical conditions that could cause complications during or after your procedure. Good candidates are also not planning on having more children after their Mommy Makeover, as having another child can reverse the results of the Mommy Makeover. Even though Mommy Makeovers are aimed at mothers, you should not get one while pregnant. You are advised to wait until after you are completely healed from birth before you decide to get a Mommy Makeover. This ensures that you are healthy and your body is in stable condition to undergo another procedure.
