Many women experience changes in their body after pregnancy. This includes changes to the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks. A mommy makeover can help you dial down on the changes post childbirth.
What is a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeover is a procedure to restore a woman’s shape and appearance, to that before childbearing. It is a combination of procedures on different parts of the body:
These procedures are customisable as per the needs of each patient.
The logic of the mommy makeover is that multiple areas of the body are affected by ageing and the childbearing process and these can be treated together at the same surgical sitting. The advantages are:
- Lesser recovery time as you are recovering from the different procedures together
- Lower costs as you are saving on OR time and anesthesia costs
- Better body image from a dramatic change in your appearance.
Who is a good candidate?
- Women who have finished childbearing
- Good medical health
- Positive outlook

Following your mommy makeover surgery, gauze or bandages will be applied to your incisions. An elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts. A compression garment may also be used to control swelling in the abdomen, waist and buttocks.
In general you should plan for 2-4 weeks off work after the procedure, depending on what your makeover consisted of.
The final results of mommy makeover surgery may not be apparent for several months after surgery.
Over time, the implants will settle and the scar lines will improve, although they’ll never disappear completely. There are trade-offs, but most women feel these are small compared to the large improvement in their self-confidence after surgery.
Dr Aniketh has trained in the mommy makeover procedure with some of the world experts, such as Dr. Simeon Wall in USA
