What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover is an umbrella term given to various breast and body rejuvenation procedures designed to enhance women’s appearance and self-confidence. Despite the nickname, you don’t have to be a mother to get this customizable procedure done. Any woman who has cosmetic concerns related to aging, hormonal changes, and weight fluctuations can benefit from this transformative surgery. 

Typically, a mommy makeover can address:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Loss of volume
  • Extra weight around the abdomen
  • Redistributed weight 
  • Overall shape and tone
  • Stretch marks

Other procedures you might choose to include as part of your mommy makeover for full body rejuvenation can include: 

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

Motherhood is a tough job that often goes unappreciated. Don’t let the changes of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging affect your body and make your life more challenging. Enhance your figure with a mommy makeover to lessen the impact of those bodily changes, restoring your self-image and self-confidence. 

A mommy makeover concentrates on enhancing your appearance with the following improvements:

  • Correcting sagging breasts and restoring breast volume
  • Eliminating extra weight around the abdomen or redistributed weight 
  • Enhancing overall shape and tone
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Correcting abdominal diastasis
  • Providing a more proportioned body contour

Am I an Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Typically, mommy makeover candidates in Louisiana are women who are in relatively good mental and physical health and looking to enhance the appearance of their post-pregnancy bodies. While mommy makeover procedures will not remove excess weight, they do enhance body contours and definition. Dr. Daugherty recommends that you are close to your ideal, stable weight for at least six months before your procedure.

Mommy makeover candidates in Baton Rouge should: 

  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Be non-smokers or willing to quit before surgery
  • Be finished with childbearing and breastfeeding
  • Have realistic expectations 
  • Understand the surgical risks

Patients who are not candidates for a mommy makeover are:

  • People with excess weight, or with visceral fat (fat below the abdominal wall around the organs) 
  • People actively losing weight
  • People who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • People who wish to become pregnant again

The cost of your mommy makeover will depend on your specific needs and the procedures required to achieve your desired goals. Following your consultation, Dr. Daugherty’s team will provide you with a breakdown of the costs.

Pricing can range from 16,000 to 24,000

A mommy makeover can be any number of a combination of procedures to contour the post baby body.  Most often, when people refer to a mommy makeover, they are talking about a tummy tuck and some sort of  breast surgery. Breast surgery can be either augmentation, breast lift, breast lift with augmentation, or breast reduction.  Any of these can be combined with fat grafting to the breasts. 

Typically around 6 hours.  Depending which procedures are needed for your body type, it could be shorter or longer. 

You should be at a goal, healthy and stable weight prior to surgery.  You should have a healthy lifestyle with good eating and exercise habits so that you are able to maintain your results.  You should be in a healthy and happy frame of mind. 

It is recommended that patients are done having children prior to investing time, money and energy into this transformative surgery.  Subsequent pregnancies may negatively impact your results.

Most people take 2 weeks away from a desk job.  Those who do not have desk jobs may resume light duty after 2 weeks.  There is no heavy lifting or straining for 6 weeks post operatively. 

You should be at a healthy, goal weight prior to surgery.  It is not recommended to have surgery at your highest weight or lowest weight for that matter if to achieve that weight you are doing unsustainable and unhealthy crash dieting.  Your weight should be stable for at least 3-6 months prior to surgery.

You should immediately begin walking and performing your own activities of daily lifting.  For hardcore or heavy exercise, we recommend waiting at least 6 weeks.

Dr. Daugherty safely performs multiple of these procedures each week.  She is very thorough, and would not agree to do your surgery if it were not safe.

You will be in an abdominoplasty garment and a surgical bra for 6 weeks post-operatively.  While you are recovering at home, loose fitting clothing that will go over your garments are best.  Think like an early post-partum uniform. 



 Initially you will sleep propped up like in a recliner or in a reclined position in bed. 

 Dr. Daugherty recommends waiting at least 6 months for the abdominoplasty portion to allow your uterus to fully contract and your body to return to as normal as possible prior to surgery.
