Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover Introduction

Few experiences in your life are as fulfilling and celebrated as when you become a mother. Your children mean the world to you, and you bestow all your love and attention upon them. But in doing so, you’ve come to neglect another important person in your life – yourself. The changes your body experienced when you became a mother, such as stretch marks, loose skin, saggy breasts, and growing bulges around your midsection, might have made you feel unattractive and less desirable. The positive self-image and happiness you deserve can be achieved with a mommy makeover. You can better enjoy your role not just as a mother but also as a beautiful woman — with your dream aesthetic. 

According to a study conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2011, approximately two out of three mothers would consider a mommy makeover, and with the surge of plastic surgery since COVID, these numbers continue to go up every year. 

At Edelstein Cosmetic, we’re proud of our patients who have experienced motherhood. As a practice, we’ve performed thousands of mommy makeover procedures on our Toronto patients, helping them achieve the figure they lost during pregnancy or, in some cases, never had.

Mommy Makeover- what

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A “Mommy Makeover” surgery involves treatments that can enhance your body contour, including your breasts, midsection, and buttocks, to restore what you lost or make you look even better than before.

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures and treatments performed to restore a woman’s pre-childbirth body. Giving birth is beautiful, but it does create immense changes in the body. Understandably, many women feel self-conscious or less desirable when their bodies have changed beyond their control, and they cannot regain their former figure through diet and exercise.

At Edelstein Cosmetic in Toronto, ON, we specialize in several procedures to restore your sense of self.

Common Mommy Makeover Procedures

The most common combination of procedures is a breast procedure (Augmentation, Lift, and/or Reduction) and a Tummy Tuck.

  • Arm Lift: Also known as brachioplasty, this procedure reshapes the upper arm to reduce or eliminate excess skin and fat.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift: A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic surgical option designed to enhance your buttock contour to get firmer, fuller, rounder buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat to contour your posterior.
  • Breast Augmentation: A procedure to replace lost volume or perkiness from breastfeeding or enhance your bust line to become the size you’ve always wanted.
  • Breast Lift: A procedure to eliminate sagging and create a more youthful contour.
  • Breast Reduction: A procedure designed to reduce breasts that have become overly large after childbirth, to reclaim the size you were before pregnancy, and to reduce the strain overly large breasts have on your health.
  • Body Lift: A circumferential body lift, both back and front, to eliminate your excess skin and reveal your true body contours.


  • Liposuction: to remove the fat you developed during and following pregnancy that won’t go away.
  • Labiaplasty: A genital surgery to reduce the size of the labia or to reshape the labia and restore it to its state before damage caused by the trauma of childbirth.
  • Thigh Lift: A procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the thighs.
  • Tummy Tuck: This procedure banishes saggy skin and bulging fat and recontours your waistline for a sleeker figure. Some stretch marks may also be removed.

A combination of facial med-spa treatments may also be performed to achieve a rejuvenated result, such as the following:

  • Neuromodulators to eliminate wrinkles.
  • Dermal Fillers to smooth away wrinkles, improve facial contours, and plump up your lips.
  • Laser Treatments to remove lines, creases, and wrinkles.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

​​A combination of surgeries and procedures can rejuvenate the body and improve and minimize changes such as loose skin, sagging breasts, wrinkles, and stretch marks. You may even look and feel better than ever before.

Patients in Toronto, ON, and the surrounding Ontario area have sought out Edelstein Cosmetic for the following benefits of a Mommy Makeover:

  • Elimination of stubborn fat deposits present before or created by pregnancy
  • Reduce or remove excess skin tissue to reveal a tighter, leaner figure
  • Enhance or lift breasts and buttocks
  • A more defined waist post-childbirth
  • A restored sense of self

Who Are the Best Candidates for a Mommy Makeover?

The best candidates for a Mommy Makeover are women who have stopped breastfeeding, are healthy and have quit smoking within four weeks of the procedure (not smoking is most important for breast lifts, breast reductions, and tummy tucks).

A Mommy Makeover significantly increases self-esteem and improves the overall quality of life for many women, but realistic expectations are also imperative to the overall satisfaction of your results. During a consultation to determine if you are a candidate, your surgeon will explain the risks and projected outcomes and discuss the best combination of treatments and procedures to help you regain the desired look.

Talking to your children about surgery:

Many women with young children choose to tell their kids they are having surgery and simply explain they are doing so to feel better about themselves. Mothers and parents also choose to talk about the procedures to prepare their children for the recovery period when healing. 

Some women are concerned about the message they are sending to their children, particularly their daughters, but most find their children are understanding and realize that what their mother is doing is a personal choice, and they do not have to have plastic surgery in the future if they choose not to do so.

What to Expect on the Day of Mommy Makeover Surgery

Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to prepare before your surgeries. These usually include stopping smoking and certain medications and/or supplements.

You should also arrange for a friend or family member to pick you up from your appointment and help you around the house for the first day or two of recovery. 

Many, if not most, surgical procedures are performed under general anesthesia and usually take two or more hours each to complete. We want our patients to achieve their aesthetic goals quickly and safely. There is a limit to how many procedures can be performed at the same time. Your surgeon will plan the most logical sequence of surgeries to achieve the results you would like. 

Most of the time, the surgeon will be able to propose a plan that offers your ideal results with one surgery, but in some cases, some of these procedures may need to be spaced out with time to recuperate in between treatments.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

The benefit of having multiple procedures performed at one time is that there is only one recovery period, but it is still important to ensure you have a good support network behind you to assist while you are relaxing and recovering. Being able to relax, lie down, and not lift is very important to the healing process, and many mothers are used to being very busy and active with their children. Some women may find it difficult to have their family and friends help with some responsibility for a few weeks.

Depending on the procedure(s) performed, our Mommy Makeover patients can leave the clinic the day of their surgery or the following morning accompanied by a friend or family member who can stay with them for the following 24 hours.

The recovery period will depend on the type of procedures and the number of surgeries performed on the same day.

Typically, most bandages come off within the first few days after surgery, and compression bandages are worn for a few weeks to keep swelling to a minimum. There may also be small tubes to collect drainage. Most procedures will result in swelling and bruising. 

Depending on the procedures performed, the surgeon will provide detailed aftercare instructions to manage pain, bruising, and swelling throughout recovery.

Postoperative appointments will also be scheduled a few days, two weeks, two months, and six months after surgery. Before-and-after pictures will be taken for the patient and surgeon to review and compare the results, as the final results often take 4 to 6 months.

You will likely need downtime for two weeks. Four to six weeks for full recovery is not uncommon.
