What is a Mommy Makeover?

Following pregnancy, many women experience changes to their bodies. A mommy makeover consists of a combination of procedures to restore the shape of a woman’s body after childbirth. These procedures are completely tailored to you; mommy makeovers are a fully customized procedure. A mommy makeover is usually performed as a single-stage procedure, which saves patients time and money.

Who is a Candidate?

Women who wish to restore their pre-baby figures can often benefit from a mommy makeover procedure. Ideal candidates will be in good health mentally and physically, be at their ideal body weight, and be finished with childbearing. While pregnancy is possible after a mommy makeover in Sacramento is completed, the resulting changes to a woman’s body from an additional pregnancy will likely undo the surgical results. A consultation with Dr. Sweat can help to decide if this procedure is right for you.

“As a mom of four I needed to feel like myself again. Dr. Sweat is amazing, my surgery was flawless, and everything was explained so well. The office staff were wonderful.”


Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Jeffrey Sweat, originally from Kansas, graduated from Kansas State University and completed medical training at the University of Kansas. He then pursued Plastic Surgery training at UC-Davis before founding J. Sweat Plastic Surgery in Sacramento in 2015. As a board-certified surgeon and member of prestigious plastic surgery organizations, he specializes in both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, offering personalized care to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals.


The Procedure

A mommy makeover surgery is a highly individualized one, and might consist of combinations of the following plastic surgery procedures or perhaps other body contouring procedures:

Breast Augmentation: After breastfeeding, the breasts can decrease in size and may even decrease to a volume that is less than what they were pre-pregnancy. Breast augmentation can help to increase or restore the size of the breasts using breast implants or occasionally fat transfer.

Breast Lift: When breasts enlarge with breastfeeding, the skin and support tissues of the breast can be stretched, resulting in droopy or sagging breasts. A breast lift surgery (mastopexy) can remove excess breast tissue and raise drooping breasts due to childbirth and breastfeeding to a perkier position.

Buttock Augmentation: Commonly known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, fat transfer to the buttocks can increase the size of the buttocks as well as create a more proportionate and feminine body contour.

Liposuction: Despite weight loss and exercise, unwanted fat deposits may remain. If the skin is not lax in those areas, liposuction is used to contour the body by removing excess stubborn fat deposits.

Tummy Tuck: When the abdomen is stretched during pregnancy, the abdominal muscles can be weakened or separated and the skin of the abdomen can be left with unsightly stretch marks. A tummy tuck can repair the muscles as well as eliminate excess belly fat and excess skin for a slimmer abdominal profile.

The Results

Recovery from mommy makeover procedures will differ for each patient, as no two mommy makeovers are the same. Compression garments and bandages will be placed on your procedure site, and swelling, bruising, redness, and pain may occur. Pain medication will help with discomfort. It is important to follow Dr. Sweat’s post-op mommy makeover recovery instructions to ensure a quick and safe recovery. Expected recovery time can be discussed during your mommy makeover consultation, and more information about each procedure can be found on the individual procedure pages.
