Having children is one of the most joyful experiences of our lives. However, the rigors of pregnancy, childbirth and breast feeding can take a significant toll on your body. Most of the bodily changes that accompany motherhood manifest in the breasts and abdomen. The process of breastfeeding can lead to a sagging, deflated and possibly asymmetrical breast appearance. The physical stretching of abdominal walls caused by pregnancy can lead to a lax tummy area without its youthful tone. Muscles may separate and form stretch marks. Excess fat and skin may persist in the midsection.
These concerns are very common among women who have had children. Fortunately, these issues can be addressed by a combination of surgical procedures performed together in what is called a mommy makeover.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers are comprehensive solutions that combine multiple plastic surgery procedures to restore a woman’s pre-baby figure. A mommy makeover is a highly-customized combination-procedure that is unique to every patient. Depending on your needs and goals, a mommy makeover can address a number of issues, such as:
- Loose abdominal wall without tone despite exercise
- Stretch marks on the abdomen
- Loose abdominal skin
- Sagging or droopy breasts
- Deflated breasts lacking their pre-pregnancy volume
Common Procedures in a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy affects women differently, so your mommy makeover must be tailored specifically to address your unique needs and goals. During your free initial consultation with Dr. Hyman, he will take time to understand your concerns and desired outcomes.
Mommy makeovers often involve some combination of the following procedures:
Although each of these procedures can be effectively performed individually, combing multiple procedures in a single visit offers a variety of benefits, such as reducing certain surgical costs and your overall recovery time.
Good Candidates for Mommy Makeover Surgery
During your initial consultation with Dr. Hyman, he will ensure that the procedures you are considering for your mommy makeover are right for you. Ensuring your candidacy for each procedure is crucial to ensuring your mommy makeover is safe and able to deliver your desired outcomes.
Typically, good mommy makeover candidates:
- Are in good health
- Don’t smoke
- Are at or near their ideal weight
- Are willing and able to follow Dr. Hyman’s pre and postoperative instructions closely
There isn’t a perfect age for a mommy make over. The best time for you is when you are physically ready and prepared to invest in your appearance, confidence and overall well-being.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to alter and improve the appearance of your labia. Whether for strictly cosmetic purposes or to help relieve pain and discomfort caused by enlarged labia, this procedure can:
- Improve the appearance of your vagina and vulva
- Improve sexual satisfaction that is hampered by large labia
- Reduce self consciousness during sexual intercourse
- Eliminate pain during sexual intercourse
- Relieve discomfort caused by clothes rubbing against the labia
- Boost self confidence
Dr. Hyman understands that the decision to undergo labiaplasty is a very personal and private one. As with every procedure, we fully respect your privacy. You will be treated in a respectful, professional manner, and your information is always strictly confidential.
