Very few experiences in life can match the rewards—or the hard work—associated with motherhood. Raising children requires a constant sacrifice where you place their needs in front of yours. Often, these sacrifices include important things such as sleep, exercise, and nutrition. While these efforts are often worth it, they nevertheless can take their toll on your body.

The rigors of motherhood, along with the impact on your body caused by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, can result in changes to your appearance over time. In many instances, it can be difficult to find the time and energy to regain the figure you enjoyed before having children. If you have been having trouble restoring your post-pregnancy body to its pre-pregnancy shape, then a mommy makeover may be right for you.

Why Choose a Mommy Makeover?

The term “mommy makeover” refers to a customizable combination of breast surgery and body contouring procedures that are performed to reverse the unwanted effects of pregnancy, childbirth, aging, and the sacrifices made as a part of motherhood.

It is common for the abdominal muscles to become stretched during pregnancy, making it difficult to maintain strength and a toned, flat stomach. In addition, you may find that it is difficult to lose weight gained during pregnancy, even with a diligent diet and exercise routine. Breastfeeding can also impact your body, causing breasts that were once perky to start sagging prematurely. A mommy makeover can correct these individual areas with one surgical procedure, reducing the amount of downtime required.

Am I a Good Candidate?

In order to be considered a good mommy makeover candidate, you should be fully recovered from childbirth and finished with breast feeding. For the best results, you should also be close to your ideal body weight.

If you are planning on having more children, you should consider postponing your procedure since future pregnancies can have an adverse impact on your results. For this reason, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir only recommend mommy makeover surgery for women who have completed this phase of their lives. The board-certified surgeons at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery can recommend non-surgical options if you are between children or think you might change your mind in the future.

Dr. Ali Mosharrafa came highly recommended from a close friend and I’m have been extremely impressed with the level of professionalism, honesty and genuine care that I’ve received. I had surgery for breast reduction/lift and a 360 thighplasty the first week of December. I’m in good health and fit for 55, gravity caught up with me. Didn’t matter how hard I worked out or watched my diet, the sagging skin wasn’t going away. Dr. Mosharrafa listened closely, answered any questions or concerns and told me what I could expect from the outcome. Realistic expectations. All of the staff, were exceptional. When talking with the staff, every single one stated how much the love their job and how well they are treated by the Mosharrafa’s. I believe that is also reflected in the care provided to the patients. Coming out of surgery, I was so pleased and it continues to improve each day. I would definitely recommend to anyone contemplating surgery and would return if and when the need arises. Thank you to Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and his entire team. You are all amazing!

Your Customized Mommy Makeover Procedure

Each patient considering a mommy makeover procedure will have different goals and different conditions. This is why mommy makeovers are personalized to the patient, rather than a pre-determined plastic surgery technique. Your customized mommy makeover Phoenix can address your unique concern areas. The following are some common problem areas that can be addressed during your mommy makeover.


The breasts experience rapid change during pregnancy and postpartum, and can become enlarged, smaller, or deflated. In each case, many women opt for a breast lift, either with the addition of breast augmentation or by itself. For women whose breasts become enlarged post pregnancy, a breast reduction can help reduce discomfort along with a breast lift.


The tummy tuck is a staple of the mommy makeover because it can tighten skin and muscles that become stretched and loose during pregnancy. Tummy tuck surgery is the most effective solution for excess skin, which non-surgical plastic surgery procedures cannot address.

Additionally, many patients opt for liposuction to reduce stubborn fatty deposits unaffected by diet and exercise in areas like the hips or thighs. Targeted procedures like the arm lift or thigh lift can also restore the body where fat accumulates during pregnancy, or excess skin develops from sudden weight loss. Finally, many women find feminine rejuvenation procedures like labiaplasty or non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation to be an important part of their mommy makeover.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

A mommy makeover comes with some of the most extensive recovery periods of any plastic surgery procedure, and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali or Dr. Tamir will ensure you have detailed instructions to follow in between your follow-up appointments.

It can take a few months before you begin to see your final results emerge as the swelling goes down and your new contours continue to refine. Plan on taking two or more weeks off work and/or social engagements to recover, as well as ensuring you have help with childcare during your initial recovery.

Although this cosmetic surgery can’t prevent the future effects of aging on the body, it is highly effective at toning, shaping, and restoring a youthful form for patients. To maintain the benefits of a mommy makeover, keep a healthy diet and exercise routine and protect skin from harmful UV damage by using sunscreen when outside for extended periods of time.
