Mommy makeover surgery focuses on the parts of the body that are impacted most by pregnancy. Common treatment areas include the legs, hips, buttocks, waist, abdomen, low back, and breasts. Some mommy makeover procedures also include treatments for the arms, neck, and face.

What will be included in your procedure is entirely dependent on your goals and your anatomy, and can best be determined during a one-on-one consultation at or Los Altos office.

Which Procedures Are Included?

Procedures that are often part of the mommy makeover procedure include:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Breast Enhancement
  • Buttock Lift
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation

Alone, these procedures could only correct a single treatment area. Combined, they can create a profound impact, improving clothing options and range of motion while helping women look and feel their absolute best.

During your initial consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will listen to your concerns and assess your problem areas to help you determine which procedures will best meet your needs.

Will Insurance Pay for My Mommy Makeover?

Nearly all of the procedures combined for mommy makeover surgery are elective. Insurance is unlikely to cover the cost. You are always free to check with your provider and make sure, but it is probable that your procedure will be an out-of-pocket expense.

Financing Mommy Makeover Surgery

Am I a Good Mommy Makeover Candidate?

Pregnancy and nursing cause physical changes. Some of these changes will respond to diet and exercise. Some will not. If you are unhappy with the way your body has changed, you may be a good mommy makeover candidate.

The best candidates for mommy makeover are:

  • Nonsmokers
  • In generally good health
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Able to take time to recover

The best way to learn if you are an ideal mommy makeover candidate is through a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon. Please call (650) 934-7020 to schedule your consultation today.
