Postpartum plastic surgery, colloquially known as a mommy makeover, is a combination of procedures that target those areas of the body most affected by pregnancy and nursing. In some instances a mommy makeover will also include facial procedures. This varies from woman to woman and will depend on both your desires and the unique ways pregnancy has altered your body.
During your mommy makeover consultation Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña will assess your areas of concern and help you determine which procedures will best help you reach your goals.

Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover
The body accumulates excess fat during pregnancy. This fat is necessary for the health of your baby, but often fails to fully respond to diet and exercise after childbirth. To address this, Dr. Peña may suggest body contouring procedures including:
- Tummy tuck surgery
- Thigh lift
- Buttock surgery
Tummy tuck surgery is also used to tighten abdominal muscles that separate during pregnancy, making it a one of the most common parts of mommy makeover surgery.
Both pregnancy and nursing can have a profound impact on your breasts. To address the issues caused by fluctuating breast volume and weight during pregnancy, Dr. Peña may recommend breast surgery options such as:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift surgery
- Breast reduction
Dr. Peña may also recommend combining some of these procedures to produce ideal shape and symmetry.
Additional treatments such as facelift, neck liposuction, and other facial rejuvenation procedures may be included in your mommy makeover as well. Nonsurgical options that can address skin imperfections brought about by hormonal changes may also be recommended. As with all aspects of your mommy makeover, the addition of these treatments depends entirely on your specific needs and personal desires.
