Although having children can be one of life’s greatest gifts, pregnancy and child-raising take a toll on one’s physical appearance. Changes to the shape and size of the breasts, excess skin in the abdomen, and deposits of fat in a variety of body areas can be very hard to improve without some help. A Mommy Makeover procedure is specifically designed to correct several aesthetic concerns associated with your post-pregnancy figure. Mommy Makeovers can include a combination of procedures to help you meet your needs, including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Okamoto, can address any concerns you may have and develop a customized Mommy Makeover treatment plan to help you attain your goals.

Mommy Makeover surgery can enhance your appearance and boost your self-confidence after having children. Through a combination of customized procedures, a Mommy Makeover can:
- Eliminate excess fat deposits virtually anywhere on the body
- Restore volume, firmness and balance to the breasts
- Minimize the appearance of stretch marks in the abdomen area
- Reduce excess skin in the abdomen and give the area a firmer, flatter appearance
During your initial consultation, Dr. Okamoto will discuss your goals with you and determine the best combination of procedures for your needs.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
A Mommy Makeover can rejuvenate your body after pregnancy through a number of individually-tailored procedures. Some of these procedures include:
It’s very common for the breasts to accumulate excess skin after pregnancy, taking on a sagging appearance. Breast lift surgery tightens the skin and gives the breasts a firmer, more youthful look.

After having children, the breasts can become larger and develop excess skin and fat, which can be associated with issues such as back pain and other physical problems. A breast reduction can relieve these issues by removing excess fat or skin to make the breasts more proportionate with your body frame.

Breast Augmentation can be an ideal solution if you would like to restore or add volume to your breasts after pregnancy. Dr. Okamoto will discuss options for breast implants with you during your consultation to determine the best treatment plan.

Liposuction targets and removes excess fat that has accumulated during and after pregnancy. Liposuction can be performed on several areas of your body including the thighs, hips, love handles, arms, and abdomen.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck is designed to tighten abdominal muscles and eliminate excess, inelastic skin. The remaining skin is pulled taut for a smoother, firmer appearance.

Mommy Makeover Recovery
The amount of time it takes to recover from a Mommy Makeover depends on each patient and the types of procedures involved. Generally, patients should expect some temporary swelling and bruising within the treated areas following a Mommy Makeover. The recovery time can take anywhere from one to four weeks, depending on the extent of treatment. During your initial consultation with Dr. Eric Okamoto, he will discuss all aspects of your Mommy Makeover procedure, including what you can expect during the recovery process.
