What is a Mommy Makeover and is it Right for Me?

Women’s bodies are nothing short of a miracle when it comes to having children. All of the changes your body is able to make to allow your baby to grow inside of you are remarkable. But after giving birth, the changes may have lasting effects on your self esteem.

The idea behind a Mommy Makeover is to get your confidence back so you can focus on what’s important: being a mother. Dr. Brown and the rest of us here at our Scottsdale and Sun City plastic surgery offices want to help you get back to a body you can be proud of. Who doesn’t want to be a hot mom!

Here’s what a Mommy Makeover consists of…


We can perform liposuction on multiple parts of your body. Some women will carry extra weight in these areas after having a child:

  • Thighs
  • Lower back
  • Stomach
  • Upper arms

Liposuction is a relatively easy procedure that can help reduce the amount of that stubborn baby weight.

Tummy Tuck

One of the most common problem areas after having a child is the stomach area. The effects of growing a child inside your body are nothing to be ashamed of, but some mothers miss the tight, toned tummy they had before.

Having a tummy tuck is the best way to get rid of the loose skin and stretch marks that liposuction simply can’t eliminate.

Breast Augmentation and/or Breast Lift

Next to the tummy area, breasts are the second area most affected by child birth. Whether you breastfeed or not, the tissue and skin of your breasts will most likely change. Some mothers can simply go for a lift or an augmentation, but sometimes, in order to achieve the best results, both are necessary.
