Rediscover Your Pre-Pregnancy Confidence: Experience the Life-Changing Mommy Makeover


Motherhood is a beautiful journey, but it can also take a toll on your body. If you’re ready to reclaim your pre-pregnancy figure and enhance your overall appearance, a Mommy Makeover (MMO) may be right for you. Zion Plastic Surgery’s world-renown team of surgeons understands the unique challenges faced by mothers and specializes in tailored body contouring procedures that inspires confidence and revitalizes your self-image.

A Mommy Makeover rejuvenates the body to its previous shape, size, and appearance after pregnancy, weight gain, etc. The most common Mommy Makeover procedures include:

  • Breast Augmentation or Reduction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Reduction
  • Buttock Augmentation (BBL)
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation

The recovery period following this type of surgery is different for every patient. It ranges from one to 12 weeks, with an average of six weeks. MMO operations conducted at our state-of-the-art facility will make you feel even more comfortable in your skin!


A Mommy Makeover surgery at Zion Plastic Surgery can restore your youthful curves and reduce the effects of pregnancy on the body. Individual treatments exist to address many of these concerns, but combining them into a MMO package can be highly effective. Benefits of a Mommy Makeover include:

  • Removal of excess fat and skin from the abdomen area.
  • Smoother and firmer tummy.
  • Stronger abdominal muscles.
  • Increased or reduced breast size.

We encourage patients to be at or close to their ideal weight before undergoing the Mommy Makeover procedure.

Since Mommy Makeover procedures can vary, the answer depends on the type of procedure, your recovery, and the operated area.
