Before You Decide…

Mommy makeover is a pretty delicate procedure and should be thought and revised carefully before deciding to have it. For this, you need to know every single procedure that can be or will be applied and why you do or don’t need it.

 Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as a boob job, is a surgical operation that aims to increase the size of the breasts. It is basically placing implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. These implants can vary in size and shape, as well as the material they are made of. Breast augmentation is not a solution for sagged breasts. This procedure can only be used to increase the volume of the breasts.

Breast Lift

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical operation that aims to make the breasts look more raised. This operation actually does not affect the size of the breasts, but it pretty much helps for a way better look. Breast lift is performed by removing loosened and excess skin, and tightening the tissues and the muscles around the breasts.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical operation that aims to remove excess breast fat, along with excess/loosened skin and glandular tissue. It is basically a combination of liposuction and breast lift, except for the methods used can differ in a number of ways.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical operation that aims to remove the excess skin and tighten the loosened muscles. around the abdomen. The operation is usually carried out under general anesthesia. The procedure basically contains opening an incision injunction line between the abdomen and thighs, stretching the skin by pulling it down, trimming the skin, and closing the incisions. There are two types of tummy tuck; full tummy tuck, and mini tummy tuck. While a full tummy tuck refers to both upper and lower parts of the belly button, a mini tummy tuck refers to only the lower part of the belly button.

Buttock Augmentation

Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, is the insertion of implants into the buttocks, or grafting fat into the buttocks, or sometimes a combination of these two procedures. The fat grafting procedure is also referred to as Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). Buttock augmentation is performed in order to increase the volume, roundness, and projection of the butt or correcting the unevenness between the buttocks.


Liposuction is a surgical operation that aims to remove fat from specific areas of the body.

Liposuction can be applied to areas such as hips, thighs, buttocks, love handles, etc. Liposuction is performed in a variety of methods and techniques. The most common of these techniques are vaser, laser, and tumescent liposuction.

Arm and Thigh Lift

Arm lift and thigh lift are two separate surgeries, but since the procedure is almost the same, these two operations can be examined under one title. The arm or thigh lift operation is carried out by opening incision lines, stretching and trimming the excess skin, removing the excess fat if needed, tightening the muscles, and closing the incisions.

How to Decide

Even after you decide on having a mommy makeover operation, it does not end there. You need to know which operations to prefer and the process after the operation. The most important thing while having a mommy makeover operation is to choose which procedures will be carried out. For this, you need to know some important things about procedures.

Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift

This might be the most important thing while deciding. Because if the right choice is not made, it will be a real pain in the future. First of all, you need to know the fundamentals of these two operations. As mentioned before, a breast augmentation aims to increase the volume of the breasts, while a breast lift aims for uplifted breasts. It is actually pretty easy to understand whether you need a breast augmentation or a breast lift. If your nipples face forward, it probably means that a breast lift is not necessary. If your nipples face down, then it means you may want to have a breast lift. If a patient with sagged breasts decides to have a breast augmentation, it usually results in more sagged breasts. You can also have both of these operations, a combination called breast augmentation with lift. 

You Probably Need a Full Tummy Tuck

While most people prefer mini tummy tuck, a big part of them decides on the wrong operation. An ideal candidate for a mini tummy tuck has excess skin on the only lower part of the abdomen whereas an ideal candidate for a full tummy tuck has excess skin on the whole abdomen. So if you decide wrong, you will probably need another operation to fix it.
