The “mommy makeover” is a relatively hot term in plastic surgery, particularly in Utah. Some of this attention is due to Hollywood. Young celebrities are having babies and want their bodies back. Demi Moore has admitted to having help with plastic surgery after her pregnancy. Many other celebrities, including Britney Spears, are also rumored to have had a mommy makeover.
Mommy makeovers are also very popular here in Salt Lake City and Utah. Women in Utah often get married early and have many children at a fairly young age. They are in their 20?s and 30?s, done having children, and desire to get their pre-pregnancy bodies back. Dr. Yates has vast experience with the mommy makeover as this is a very large part of his practice.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is not a specific operation, but is tailored to the needs of each patient. The issues that are generally addressed with a mommy makeover are saggy breasts, loss of breast fullness and size, stretch marks on the tummy, loose skin on the tummy, and flabby abdominal muscles. This involves a combination of a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast enhancement surgery (often a breast lift and breast augmentation with breast implants).
Can a mommy makeover be done in a single operation?
Oftentimes, some or all of these procedures can be done in combination. For example, breast augmentation and a mini-tummy tuck are often combined. A mini tummy-tuck and liposuction are often combined.
For larger procedures such as a full tummy tuck or breast lift, we will often separate the procedures by a few days or weeks. This is for both cost and safety. You will hear about people who get multiple procedures in one setting. Generally, Dr. Yates feels that the risks involved with combining large procedures are too high.
How soon after having a baby can I consider a mommy makeover?
Generally, one should wait until at least 6 months after delivery or breast feeding to proceed with a mommy makeover. Dr Yates is very experienced in the complete mommy makeover process, providing service to the Salt Lake City area in Utah.
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The fees associated with a tummy tuck and breast rejuvenation include 1) surgeon’s fees, 2) anesthesia fees, and 3) facility fees. As Dr Yates has an in-office operating suite, there is minimal facility fee. This is a cost savings directly to the patient.

Before & After
Mother of three desired mommy makeover consisting of breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. Her breasts had significant droop and a tear drop shaped implant above the muscle was chosen to help maximally lift and support the breasts without a formal lift. These were 330 cc oval base moderate projection Sientra implants. Had she chosen a standard round implant placed beneath the muscle she would have been left with a fairly droopy postoperative result. She is shown at 3 months and reports she went from a B cup to a D cup. Her abdomen scar is still quite red but we would expect significant fading over time View More.
