Mommy makeover is a popular term that has become very popular in the cosmetic plastic surgery world. The term evolved because many women who have finished having children are seeking plastic surgery to regain their pre-pregnancy body shape.

Before and After Mommy Makeover

This is a 35-year-old resident of Marin County, California. She was seen for an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast reduction and liposuction of the flanks. She lost a lot of weight by diet and exercise.

The mommy makeover procedure is a combination of cosmetic procedures that includes a tummy tuck, breast surgery; breast augmentation, breast lift (or both) and in some cases perhaps a breast reduction, and usually will include some liposuction of the waist or thighs.


Mommy makeover is not a specific procedure; it is tailored to the individual woman. However, it is not recommended if a woman plans to have more children. The tummy tuck procedure which tightens the abdominal muscles would be compromised should the woman become pregnant and therefore will be advised against it. Breast surgery might need to be redone if the woman has more children, however this is on an individual basis and a personal consultation is advised for consideration.


Dr. Delgado is considered an expert cosmetic plastic surgeon for Mommy Makeovers; in fact he was approached by the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) to film the journey of one of his patients who opted for a Mommy Makeover. The episode was hosted by super star Louise Redknapp who explores the process of women wanting to get their pre pregnancy bodies back. The video can be seen on You Tube.

The Mommy Makeover has proved to be one of the most pleasing cosmetic surgery procedures with a very high satisfaction rate. It is believed that it is so popular because busy Moms want to have all the procedures at once so that they have just one recovery period.

According to 2013 statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast augmentation surgery is up 37% and tummy tuck surgery is up 79% since the year 2000.


However, Dr. Delgado warns patients who are considering the Mommy Makeover procedure to do their homework in finding a surgeon. Due to the extensive amount of surgery you want to be sure you find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with expertise in these procedures. He advises that you ask to see many before and after pictures of the surgeon’s actual patients, and ask how long he/she has been doing the procedures. It is not unusual to ask to speak to a patient that has had a Mommy Makeover and find out what her experience was.

Dr. Delgado has been performing Mommy Makeover’s for many years and invites you to call (415 898-4161) or email (info@dr-delgado.com)if this is a procedure you are interested in. He will be happy to explain the procedure to you in detail and give you his professional opinion as to if you may be a candidate. He will show you many before and after pictures of his patients which you can also view on his website.
