What’s Included in a Mommy Makeover?

The beauty of a mommy makeover is the ability to address a woman’s individual concerns. The general term is a combination of procedures designed to safely and effectively get you the results you want. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the most popular combinations requested by mothers just like yourself.

Breast Enhancement

Breast enhancement comes in a variety of forms and is one of the most often performed procedures within a mommy makeover. If pregnancy and nursing have left you with an undesirable shape or size bust, or you’d like to achieve a younger, perkier-looking appearance, you might be able to benefit from breast enhancement.

Breast enhancement might include one or more of the following;

While a breast lift is most common for new moms, many also opt for augmentation or reduction at the same time. Dr. Lawton will help determine what’s right for you depending on your individual needs and goals.


Liposuction is a great treatment option when added to a mommy makeover. The procedure can help sculpt and contour almost anywhere unwanted fat on the body exists. Liposuction may be worth considering if you’ve experienced significant weight gain after having children.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is almost always performed during a mommy makeover. Some women may benefit from a full tuck, while others can achieve the results they want with a mini tuck. This procedure may be right for you if you’re bothered by excess skin or localized fat that isn’t responding well to diet and exercise.

Other Mommy Makeover Procedures

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to restoring your ideal pre-pregnancy appearance. A mommy makeover can include a range of treatments to address facial volume loss, excess skin or fat throughout the body, and even vaginal rejuvenation. Your options are virtually limitless. At Tenley K. Lawton M.D., we’ll help you make an informed decision about what’s right for you.

Dr. Lawton did my mommy makeover 1 year ago after I lost over 60 pounds. My breasts needed a lift and implants and free nipple graft. I needed a tummy tuck as well. I was worried because of my dark skin and propensity for scarring but her attention to detail in measurements, closure and in everything prevented that. She was an excellent choice. She saw me through it all. I have had minimal scarring and I look amazing. And I say that as a fellow MD. I did have some areolar pigment loss as a result of the free nipple graft, what we consider one of the common sequelae, but overall I am so pleased with my results and her care and that of her office staff, that I have recommended her repeatedly although she is further out than most of my friends live! A friend went to her and had a medical complication after her surgery and told me Dr. Lawton was amazing throughout her issue as well and she is overwhelmingly pleased with her care too. She is a wonderful surgeon and she is a woman who understands what we are going through and she wants to make us beautiful again but not into unrealistic Barbie dolls. I have a lot of respect for her technique and attention to her craft. Thank you, Dr. Lawton.

CS, Happy Patient
