At Advanced Aesthetic Associates, we often consult with women who have sacrificed a lot for their families and are ready to do something for themselves. Although the process of becoming a mom is a wonderful event, it often permanently affects the body, leaving many women struggling in vain to get back to their pre-pregnancy shapes. A Mommy Makeover at our Scottsdale and Phoenix practice is a personalized set of cosmetic procedures that can help restore your pre-pregnancy figure.

Why Choose a Mommy Makeover
Even though you may have lost all of your pregnancy weight, you may be left with body changes that prevent you from buttoning your favorite jeans or feeling confident in a bathing suit. These changes often include:
- Stretched, sagging skin
- A protruding abdomen
- Drooping, diminished breasts
The changes that occur during pregnancy cause the breast and abdominal skin to develop stretch marks, which are small internal tears that do not go away without surgery. The breast position, shape, and contour change from youthful and perky to flat and sagging. The flat tummy that was once there develops a roundness or "pooch," as many women describe it, that does not go away despite diet and exercise.
While each Mommy Makeover is personalized to the patient's unique goals, most include a combination of the following procedures:
- Breast lift for a perky, youthful breast shape
- Breast augmentation to return the breasts to their original size or provide the fullness you've always wanted
- Tummy tuck for a smooth, flat tummy
- Liposuction of the abdomen, hips, and flanks
Other procedures are also available for the mom who wants to look her best. Some women choose to undergo facial rejuvenation procedures as part of their Mommy Makeovers. It is not uncommon for women to get injectable treatments to enhance their results. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will help you decide on a treatment plan that best meets your goals and expectations and helps you to look and feel your best.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The cost for a Mommy Makeover varies with the specific procedures you choose but ranges from about $15,000 to $24,000. While price is a consideration, it's important to choose a surgeon who is appropriately trained and has sufficient experience performing these complex combination procedures. Visit our Choosing a Plastic Surgeon page for more information.
What to Expect During Recovery
A significant advantage of a Mommy Makeover is that you need to take time out for recovery only once because all your procedures are done simultaneously. The length of this recovery period depends on the procedures you choose. In general, Mommy Makeover patients are ready to return to work in about 2 weeks.
