What is a mommy makeover?

Many of the changes that can come along with the childbearing process have an adverse impact on that tighter, tone look you might have enjoyed in your youth. Sagging or drooping breasts, a loose abdomen, excess pockets of stubborn fat—these issues can all remain long after the childbearing process is complete.

A mommy makeover in Maryland offers you a highly customizable method by which you can address these issues in a single procedure, avoiding the need for multiple surgeries and lengthy recovery periods. To learn more about what the mommy makeover can do for you, reach out to Dr. Guy Cappuccino at his Mount Airy, Maryland location and set up your consultation today.

Who is a Candidate For Mommy Makeover Surgery?

A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to address changes in a woman's body after childbirth or significant weight loss. It typically includes a combination of procedures such as breast augmentation or lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. While the specific recommendations may vary based on individual needs, some general characteristics of candidates for a mommy makeover procedure include:

  • Post-Pregnancy ChangesStable Weight
  • Healthy Lifestyle
  • Realistic Expectations
  • Completed Childbearing
  • Good Emotional Health
  • Consultation with a Plastic Surgeon

What Areas Can the Mommy Makeover Address?

Given that no two bodies respond to childbirth in the exact same ways, no two Mommy Makeover procedures are ever exactly the same. Dr. Cappuccino will work closely with you to learn about your particular cosmetic goals and the problematic areas that are keeping you from reaching them.

A mommy makeover can help you by addressing:

  • Sagging, flat, or deflated breasts
  • Stretched or enlarged nipples
  • Stretch marks and sagging skin
  • Loose skin or excess fat
  • Abdominal laxity
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

What Are The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover surgery can offer various physical and emotional benefits for women who have experienced changes in their bodies due to pregnancy, childbirth, or significant weight loss. Here are some potential benefits:

Restoration of Pre-Pregnancy Body: Mommy makeover procedures, such as tummy tucks and breast surgeries, can help restore a woman's body to a more youthful and pre-pregnancy appearance.

Improved Breast Appearance: Breast augmentation, lift, or reduction can enhance the size, shape, and position of the breasts, addressing issues like sagging or volume loss after breastfeeding.

Tightening of Abdominal Muscles: A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can tighten stretched abdominal muscles, remove excess skin, and create a flatter, more toned abdomen.

Removal of Excess Skin and Fat: Liposuction and other contouring procedures can target stubborn pockets of fat in various areas of the body, providing a more sculpted and balanced physique.

Enhanced Confidence and Self-Esteem: Many women experience a boost in self-confidence and self-esteem after a mommy makeover, as they feel more comfortable and satisfied with their physical appearance.

Makeover Options?

Dr. Cappuccino possesses a high level of surgical training and a vast amount of experience, enabling him to offer a number of procedures that can help you enjoy the body of your dreams. During your consultation, you’ll work with him to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific cosmetic goals. Here are some of the procedures Dr. Cappuccino incorporates into a mommy makeover in Maryland.


When childbirth leaves behind frustrating pockets of fat on the stomach, abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, liposuction can help to address these problem areas and restore a toned and contoured appearance.

Breast Enhancement

Breast augmentation or a breast lift procedure (or a combination of the two) can be a great way to restore breasts that may look deflated, saggy, or that appear to have lost significant volume after breastfeeding.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Some women experience a loss of muscle control and internal tightness as a result of childbearing. Vaginal rejuvenation can restore the appearance and function of the genital region after childbirth.

Skin Resurfacing

If you’re feeling frustrated with the appearance of stretch marks on the surface of your skin, we offer skin resurfacing techniques such as CoolSculpting that can effectively restore your youthful skin and leave you looking healthy.

Tummy Tuck

Some women experience abdominal wall laxity and loose skin after childbearing.  Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) combined with liposuction can correct these issues as part of a mommy makeover procedure.
