Frustrated with Your Mom Bod? Give Yourself a Mommy Makeover

Becoming a mom is a beautiful experience, but it’s not without costs. Your pregnancy probably left you with a few body shape changes that you’d rather reverse. Despite your best efforts to shed the baby weight, diet and exercise can’t fix a “mom bod” on their own. Fortunately, a Mommy Makeover can restore attractive, youthful, and toned contours and get rid of your mom bod for good.

Is “Mom Bod” a Thing?

Anyone who has ever been pregnant and born a child knows firsthand that a “mom bod” is real. Many changes occur in the body during pregnancy. Internal organs shift out of the way to make room for the baby. As the baby grows, the abdominal muscles and skin stretch. The abdominal muscle wall can even separate during this time. Stretch marks form on the skin of the stomach due to the speed at which the skin stretches. To protect mother and baby, the body creates more natural insulation, leading to fat accumulation on the abdomen and other areas. In preparation for nursing, the breasts enlarge and swell.


Unfortunately, after childbirth and nursing, many of these changes can’t simply go back to the way things were. Even with a strict diet and exercise regimen, it’s impossible to target and eliminate localized abdominal fat. The breasts may shrink again after birth, but because of their formerly swollen and heavy weight, they may be deflated and saggy. Separated abdominal muscles can’t mend on their own, which means the abdomen may constantly pooch outward. Overstretched skin will likely only partially contract, which means there will still be some sagging skin. Stretch marks are permanent scars.

How Can a Mommy Makeover Help?

A Mommy Makeover directly addresses all these problems with a one-time surgery that is safe, yet thorough, and customized to meet your needs. In just one day, a surgeon can correct the damage done by pregnancy and recreate beautiful, feminine body contours. Most Mommy Makeovers include a combination of the following:

  • Breast Augmentation: Uses breast implants to restore volume loss when breasts become deflated after pregnancy and nursing.
  • Breast Lift: Lifts the breasts to a more youthful position when they have become saggy after nursing.
  • Tummy Tuck: Flattens the stomach by removing excess skin (including many stretch marks) and tightening the stomach muscle wall to correct muscle separation.
  • Liposuction: Removes stubborn fat from target areas such as the abdomen, hips, and virtually any area of the body. 

Whether your mom bod needs serious help in your breast area, your protruding abdomen, your stubborn fat, or all of the above, a Mommy Makeover is the only solution that can provide lasting results. With this procedure, tailored to your individual needs, you can reclaim the figure you used to have – or even achieve the body contours you have always wanted. A Mommy Makeover can clear away your frustrations, restore attractive and youthful contours, and inspire the confidence that every strong mother needs to thrive and enjoy life.
