What is a Mommy Makeover?

August 1, 2022

The mommy makeover has become a popular cosmetic surgery option for women who have recently given birth, gained or lost weight, or are going through menopause. It has grown in popularity because it addresses multiple areas of a woman’s body all at once. In a mommy makeover, your plastic surgeon is doing multiple procedures over the course of one surgical session. It’s a series of procedures all rolled into one. 

It is important to note that at Advanced Aesthetics we deeply understand the effects of having children and aging. We focus on individuality. That is why each patient receives a procedure customized to their specific needs. In fact, a mommy makeover begins with a thorough consultation with your plastic surgeon about what is best for you. While most patients will not receive the same exact procedures during a mommy makeover, there are a few that have proven to be very common.


The most common procedure is the abdominoplasty, which is commonly known as the “tummy tuck.” If pregnancy or change in weight has left excess skin around your belly, a tummy tuck is an effective procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen, tightens connective tissue, and restructures the remaining skin to return your belly to its former shape. It also removes any visible stretch marks from the lower abdomen. The downside to the tummy tuck is that it will usually leave an hip-to-hip scar that will be noticeable for up to one year, though it will generally fade into a white line. At Advanced Aesthetics, we can offer you scar fading creams and recommend laser resurfacing treatments. 


Liposuction can be done in place of or in conjunction with an abdominoplasty, depending on the patient’s goals. Liposuction is a procedure that removes pockets of fat from the abdomen or other areas through a suction device, but unlike the tummy tuck, it does nothing to correct the shape of a sagging abdomen. 

Breast augmentation

Motherhood is a treasure that looks different for each woman. At Advanced Aesthetics, we want to celebrate the joy of motherhood by helping women feel confident in their new role. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause women’s breasts to deflate, reduce in size, or become asymmetrical. Breast augmentation is a breast implant procedure that restores the firmness and shape of the breast pre-pregnancy. The most common type are silicone implants, which are filled with silicone gel. The other type of implants are saline implants, which are filled with sterile salt water. Soreness, swelling, and bruising are all possible side effects, and scarring will fade but not fully go away. 

Breast lift

While some women experience deflation of the breasts, others will experience sagging or stretched breasts due to breastfeeding or weight loss. This problem is not solved by implants. This is where a breast lift becomes the preferred option. The procedure repositions the nipple higher on the chest wall while removing excess skin and tightening any excess tissue. The procedure can be done in conjunction with breast augmentation, and just like augmentation, it can be done in one day with no overnight hospital stay.

Other types of procedures such as buttock augmentation, arm lift, and thigh lift can be included in a mommy makeover. You can get a mommy makeover in Fayetteville, Ga. by calling our office today. Our staff and team of surgeons at Advanced Aesthetics will work with you to develop a customized plan to ensure how you feel on the inside matches how you look on the outside.

Could not say enough great things about Dr. Raniere and his staff at Advanced Aesthetics! They are wonderful in every way and provide exceptional care. I am very pleased with my results of my surgery, as is several of my family members that he has also treated. The whole process from the first consult to the last post-op visit was so painless. Highly recommend Dr. Raniere and his practice for all your plastic surgery needs!

When searching for a surgeon, I took YEARS to make up my mind. After meeting with several other doctors, I met with Dr. Raniere.... I knew right away, he was it! He’s a true artist who’s a total perfectionist! He listens very well and is very knowledgeable and most of all PASSIONATE about what he does. His staff is just out right phenomenal! You feel as if your going through the whole process with you best friends! Mrs. Cheryl is perfect is guiding you through everything before, during and after your procedure. I would highly recommend planning your surgery with this team of artist!
