Mommy Makeover



For most women, childbirth and becoming a mother are two of the most beautiful and transforming experiences in life. However, childbirth can affect the body in many ways. Some patients are lucky enough that with proper diet and exercise, they can return to their pre-baby body. For others, even with the strictest of diets and exercise, the pre-baby body is still unattainable. This could be due to genetics, hormones, breastfeeding, or simply an excess of skin from body growth during pregnancy, which typically no amount of diet or exercise can reduce.

If you have noticed excess skin and an inability to bounce back to your pre-pregnancy state, we encourage you to read further and see if a Mommy Makeover might be a suitable option for you.


Q: What is a Mommy Makeover?

A: A Mommy Makeover combines multiple procedures designed to help restore the body after childbirth and pregnancy. This can include any combination of abdominal procedures (abdominoplasty, lower body lift), breast procedures (breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction), liposuction, or fat grafting.
We will tailor a Mommy Makeover to your unique anatomic needs and expressed goals.

Q:How do I determine what procedures are appropriate for my Mommy Makeover?

A:The first step is to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Behmand. Upon meeting with you, Dr. Behmand will perform an exam and discuss your concerns. Then he will recommend a combination of procedures that offer the best opportunity to achieve your desired results.

Q: How much will my Mommy Makeover cost?

A: Because a Mommy makeover can involve several different procedures and is different for each patient, we will not be able to determine this until after your consultation. After meeting with Dr. Behmand, you will meet with his coordinator to receive a detailed quote including the surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and operating room fees.

Q: Do I need to have any tests or lab work done before having my Mommy Makeover?

A: Yes. You will need to have lab work done within 30 days of your procedure. Dr. Behmand’s surgery coordinator will provide you with a lab requisition form during a pre-operative appointment. During your initial consultation, we will determine if you need an EKG. If necessary, Dr. Behmand’s coordinator will provide you with the requisition form at the pre-operative appointment.

Q: Will my procedure be painful?

A: Experiencing discomfort in the first week after surgery is normal. We’ll prescribe pain medication to make it more comfortable and manage your pain. We may use long-acting anesthetics during your procedure to enhance comfort in the initial 3–4 days post-surgery. Dr. Behmand will discuss this during your consultation to determine your suitability for a long-acting anesthetic.

Q: How long after childbirth should I wait to have my Mommy Makeover?

A: You should wait at least 3 months after you finish breastfeeding and be close to your goal weight.

Q: Should I complete having children before undergoing my Mommy Makeover?

A: Ideally, you’d prefer to finish having children. However, some patients may seek quicker results, especially if they plan to delay having children for several years. They might consider a procedure to enhance their body during the interval between children. This won’t complicate future pregnancies, but it may require a revision after having more children.

Q: If I get pregnant again following my Mommy Makeover, can I still breastfeed?

A: Most women who were able to breastfeed before having surgery can still do so after surgery. Some types of breast lift or reduction procedures may decrease the ability to breastfeed.  If future breastfeeding concerns you, Dr. Behmand will recommend options to optimize breastfeeding after Mommy Makeover surgery while still achieving your desired aesthetic results.

Q: Will insurance cover my procedure?

A: Most procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover are elective and considered cosmetic; therefore, they are not covered by insurance.
