A mommy makeover combines multiple surgical treatments to address the body issues many women wish to correct after pregnancy, helping to improve both confidence and mental health. 

Plastic surgeon Gregory T. Mesna works closely with patients to create a customized mommy makeover treatment plan at his Minneapolis, MN, practice. For more information about mommy makeovers, or to find out if it’s right for you, we welcome you to schedule a consultation. 

Pregnancy and Body Changes

During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many changes to nourish and grow their baby. For those who choose to breastfeed, changes continue. Many of these changes are permanent and can’t be improved with diet and exercise alone. This can leave many women struggling to accept their new bodies, which commonly affects confidence and mental health. 

The good news is mommy makeovers can address many of the body issues women face after having children and breastfeeding, such as: 

  • Loose abdominal skin
  • Sagging breasts
  • C-section shelf or abdominal pooch

A Mommy Makeover Can Boost Confidence and Self-Image

It’s important that mothers feel confident and comfortable in their bodies not just for themselves but also for their children. When a mother has poor body image, she’s more likely to speak negatively about her body around her children. For young girls especially, this can significantly impact their own body image.  

Mommy makeovers can help women feel more confident and happy in their skin by addressing the unique concerns of each woman. Not only can this help boost confidence, it can help mothers speak kindly about themselves and set a healthy example of confidence for their children. 

Mommy Makeovers and Mental Health 

Mental health affects how people think, feel, and act so when a mother feels depressed or insecure about her post-baby body, it can affect all aspects of her life. 

Mommy makeovers at our Minneapolis practice address body issues that can’t be changed with diet or exercise, like sagging breasts or a C-section pooch, helping women reclaim their bodies. As a result, many women find they have a more positive outlook on life after a mommy makeover. 

Popular Mommy Makeover Procedures 

Mommy makeovers combine any number of plastic surgery procedures to address body issues women have after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Combining procedures helps enhance results and restore the appearance to a pre-baby look.

Every mommy makeover is tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient. With this in mind, some popular mommy makeover procedures include:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Thigh lift
  • Brazilian butt lift
