Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging can cause bothersome changes for many women, including abdominal skin laxity, fat accumulation, and deflated breasts. Although some women can regain the appearance of their pre-pregnancy bodies, for others, regular exercise and a proper diet are not enough to reverse these changes. Dr. Hadeed offers a combination of surgical procedures known as the Mommy Makeover that can improve your body and help you regain the youthful figure you once had.
Many women struggle with separated abdominal muscles and excess tissue along their midsection after giving birth. A Mommy Makeover can correct these issues by repairing the muscles, removing excess skin, and tightening the remaining tissues.
Fat can accumulate on many areas of a woman’s body, including the back, hips, and abdomen. This can alter a woman’s natural silhouette, making her body look saggy and deflated. A Mommy Makeover can slim and enhance the natural contours of a woman’s body for a smooth and youthful look.
Some women may feel self-conscious about their body following pregnancy and long to look they way they did before. Not only can a Mommy Makeover restore several areas of the body, but it can also help women regain a sense of confidence. They may even feel better than they did before their pregnancy.
Dr. Hadeed understands the physical and emotional demands placed on mothers and takes all necessary steps to maximize their aesthetic results. Each Mommy Makeover is highly customized based on the needs and aesthetic goals of the patient and generally includes two or more of the following procedures:
Your recovery will depend on the number of procedures performed during your Mommy Makeover. Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve after a few weeks. Drainage tubes may also be placed under your skin, and compression garments will be applied to the treated areas to support your new contours. Make sure to avoid any strenuous activities for at least six weeks. It is recommended that you take light walks during the first few days to encourage circulation and prevent blood clots from developing. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities three weeks after their surgery.
You may experience some discomfort following your Mommy Makeover. Dr. Hadeed can prescribe pain medication to help with this.
Mommy Makeover surgery will result in some scarring, but it can be easily hidden with clothing. Most scars will fade over time.
The cost of your Mommy Makeover will vary based on multiple factors, including the combination of procedures, technique, anesthesia, facility fees, and surgical fees. Dr. Hadeed will provide you with an accurate quote during your consultation.

Each Mommy Makeover is different. The procedure can be performed in one single surgery or spread out in stages depending on the patient’s needs and aesthetic goals.
Mommy Makeover patients can expect long-lasting results that will boost their self-confidence. However, the natural aging process will continue, and it is important that patients maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
As with most surgical procedures, there are some risks involved with a Mommy Makeover. These include:
