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 body contouring procedures that are customized to your needs. They aim to restore your pre-pregnancy figure. A mommy makeover 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, breast reduction, and a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat and enhance your form.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Most mothers looking to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies 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 include your:

We tailor your care throughout every stage of treatment, from your initial consultation to your follow-up appointment.

A combination of treatments can dramatically enhance your figure, but it is important to manage your expectations before undergoing surgical procedures. Patients shouldn't expect immediate, perfect results.


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 will alter your breast size and shape and can re-stretch the skin and abdominal muscles, undoing many of the effects of your mommy makeover.

The Plastic Surgery Options in 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 body contouring procedures to meet your aesthetic goals. Patients should note that our Carmel, IN, office has a surgery limit of six and a half hours 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.

This less invasive cosmetic procedure is 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.

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 symmetry. Your plastic surgeon will review the types of implants we offer and which ones would help you best achieve your aesthetic goals.

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.

Breast Reduction

While many women experience smaller breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding, others do not. Overly large breasts can be uncomfortable and cause chafing, among other concerns. Breast reduction surgery with our plastic surgeons can remove excess fat, skin, and tissue to create smaller, more proportionate breasts.

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. This procedure can also be combined with liposuction to remove excess fat from the inner and outer thighs to create better contours.
