Mommy Makeover

Has your post-pregnancy body made you lose confidence in your appearance?

A mommy makeover is a combination of treatments that can help restore your figure after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Plastic surgeons Elizabeth Grasee and Debra Bergman in Carmel, IN, can create a custom mommy makeover plan to restore your confidence.

What Is a Mommy Makeover? A Group of Treatments Tailored To Fit Your Needs

A mommy makeover is a group of customized treatments that aim to restore your pre-pregnancy figure. It typically targets the areas most affected by pregnancy, such as the stomach and breasts. It can combine several treatments like liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lift, and a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat and enhance your form.

Dr. Bergman is an amazing surgeon- I consulted with other surgeons before making a decision and from the moment I met her, I felt extremely comfortable and knew immediately that she was the best choice. She truly listened to me, her bedside manner is excellent and without a doubt can say that she performs her best work! I couldn’t be happier with the results. Highly recommended.

Dr. Grasee was amazing. I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Initial consultation she took over an hour to explain everything to me patiently and answered all my questions and concerns. Then after surgery she was always available for concerns. And I couldn’t be happier with my results!! Tummy Tuck and brachioplasty

Incredible Results From a Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck at our Carmel, IN, practice can effectively tighten a sagging abdomen and hide stretch marks created during pregnancy.


The Plastic Surgery Options Of a Mommy Makeover

For many women, tissues that were stretched during pregnancy don't "bounce back" after the baby arrives, leaving behind excess skin and stretch marks that do not respond to diet and exercise. A customized mommy makeover treatment plan will combine the best procedures to meet your aesthetic goals. Patients should note that our Carmel, IN, practice has a maximum six and one half hours surgery limit to ensure your safety and health.

A mommy makeover plan could include:

Tummy Tuck

This procedure removes excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal wall musculature. A tummy tuck can remove several pounds of excess fat and is often the best way to address post-pregnancy concerns throughout the abdomen. For women who only need a small area corrected, our Indianapolis-area practice also offers mini tummy tucks.

More About Tummy Tucks


This is a less-invasive cosmetic procedure recommended for moms with small amounts of excess fat. Liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits anywhere on the body, but it cannot address sagging skin. We recommend combining liposuction with a tummy tuck for moms who have a substantial amount of localized fatty deposits and excess abdominal skin that needs to be removed.

More About Liposuction

Breast Augmentation

Changes in the breasts caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding can result in volume loss . Breast augmentation with implants can restore your breast volume and improve tsymmetry. Your plastic surgeon will review the types of implants we offer and which ones would help you best achieve your aesthetic goals.

More About Breast Augmentation

Breast Lift

Breastfeeding and the sudden fluctuation of weight during and after pregnancy can cause your breasts to sag. A mastopexy at our Carmel, IN, practice will reposition the breast tissue lifting the breasts to achieve a perkier appearance. This procedure works best for mothers who want to change the shape of their breasts, but do not want an increase in size.

More About Breast Lifts

Thigh Lift

The thighs are the hardest area to target with just diet and exercise alone. The skilled plastic surgeons at our Indianapolis-area practice can perform a thigh lift to remove excess skin and create a more toned appearance of the thighs. This procedure can also be combined with liposuction to remove the excess fat of the inner and outer thighs that creates displeasing contours.

Am I a Good Candidate For a Mommy Makeover Procedure?

Most mothers looking to regain their pre-pregnancy body are good candidates for a mommy makeover. However, there are some factors that can affect your candidacy. The best way to know for sure which treatment options are right for you is to call our Indianapolis-area practice to request a consultation.

Factors that can affect your candidacy:


A combination of treatments can dramatically enhance your figure; however, it is important to manage your expectations before undergoing any procedure. Patients expecting immediate, perfect results may be disappointed.


Mommy makeover procedures are not intended for weight loss. Before having a mommy makeover, it is important for you to be at a healthy weight, within 20 pounds of your ideal weight, and close to what you were before giving birth. 


Some mommy makeover treatments require more extensive surgery. Health concerns such as heart conditions, uncontrolled diabetes, and autoimmune disorders can put you at a higher risk of complications. 


We recommend that you be finished with breastfeeding and having children before pursuing a mommy makeover. Future pregnancies certainly can alter your breast size and shape and can re-stretch the skin and abdominal muscles, undoing many of the effects of your mommy makeover.

"I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Highly recommended."

Going into Dr. Bergman’s office for the first time I was extremely self conscious and uncomfortable seeing my own reflection in the mirror. My goals were to always have a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck done as a reward for all of the hard work put into reaching my fitness goals. The first time meeting Dr. Bergman was the best experience I have ever had meeting a medical professional. During the consultation we talked about everything I wanted done and how we would achieve the desired look I wanted for so long. After surgery I looked in the mirror for the first time and was overwhelmed with emotions because I absolutely loved the woman I saw in the mirror after years of not loving the way I looked. I would highly recommend Dr. Bergman and her team to anyone seeking plastic surgery.
