What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

As a mother of two and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Tenley Lawton offers mommy makeovers to help reverse some of the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s body. However, what can be included in a mommy makeover?

What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover? 

While a mommy makeover can include many procedures, there are a few procedures that Dr. Lawton most commonly performs as part of her mommy makeover package. 

Breast Lift 

Volume loss and stretched skin on the breasts are common occurrences of breastfeeding. With a breast lift, Dr. Lawton removes the excess breast skin, and the rest is reshaped to position the breasts where they were pre-baby. A breast lift enhances the overall look of the breasts and makes them appear younger. 


Even if you have exercised and dieted regularly, stubborn areas of fat after pregnancy can still remain. Liposuction removes fat cells through a cannula, a small tube inserted into a tiny incision Dr. Lawton makes. This procedure can help get rid of fat that has been tough to get rid of. 

Tummy Tuck 

Pregnancy often stretches the abdominal muscles, and the appearance of the stomach can appear lax. Dr. Lawton can repair the abdominal muscles and sculpt the stomach’s appearance with a tummy tuck


The first step is to schedule an in-person consultation with Dr. Lawton or one of our trusted providers at Tenley K Lawton M.D. in Neport Beach, CA. Simply fill out the form on this page and we will reach out to you promptly to schedule your appointment.

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover? 

A good candidate for a mommy makeover should have areas of concern they want to address, such as sagging breasts, areas of stubborn fat, and more. Ideal candidates should be within 20% of their body weight goals and be non-smokers because smoking can delay healing.
