While having a child can be one of life’s most precious gifts, the physical toll that pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on your body may be difficult to reverse on your own. Here at Miller Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Scott Miller developed and offered a Mommy Makeover procedure years before the name was popularized. It consists of a combination of treatments custom-designed to improve your appearance and restore your pre-pregnancy figure. With a Mommy Makeover, Dr. Miller can renew the breasts, recontour the body, eliminate excess fat pockets, and rejuvenate your skin for a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
If you would like more information on Mommy Makeover options, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with our San Diego plastic surgeon, please contact Miller Cosmetic Surgery.
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
A Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that is uniquely tailored to each patient’s needs. Focusing on specific areas that you would like to improve, Mommy Makeover procedures can provide a number of benefits, including:
- Reduction of excess fat deposits that have proven resistant to traditional diet and exercise regimens
- Elimination of loose extra skin in the abdomen and tightening of the abdominal muscles for a flatter, more toned appearance
- Tightening breast skin and lifting the breasts to reduce the appearance of sagginess
- Reducing signs of facial aging as well as stress and fatigue
Dr. Miller will meet with you in an initial consultation and speak with you about all aspects of treatment. At this meeting, you can talk with Dr. Miller about your ultimate goals. Together, you and Dr. Miller will decide on the treatment plan that can give you the best results for your needs.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
An array of cosmetic enhancement procedures can be combined for a total Mommy Makeover, giving you comprehensive improvement of areas of the body and skin that have been affected by pregnancy. Mommy Makeover treatments can be combined into one procedure, or spread out over a number of sessions. Options include:
One of the most common effects of recent pregnancy and/or breastfeeding is looseness, or an excess of skin, due to stretching and/or loss of breast tissue density, giving your breasts a sagging appearance. Breast lift surgery, medically referred to as mastopexy, eliminates extra skin and tightens the remainder for firmer, “perkier,” younger-looking breasts.
Breast lift surgery can also be performed in combination with breast augmentation to rejuvenate the breasts by adding breast volume. These are two things you can do about loose breast skin: tighten it or add volume. Often, the best answer is a combination of the two.

Breast Augmentation with Implants
Breast augmentation with implants, often referred to as breast enlargement, adds fullness and volume to the breasts for a more contoured, aesthetic appearance. Breast implants, available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and types, can improve the appearance of breasts that have lost volume or fullness after pregnancy or breastfeeding.

After pregnancy and or weight gain, excess pockets of fat can appear in a variety of body areas that can be very difficult to get rid of. Liposuction is designed to eliminate fat deposits in the abdomen, back, hips, love handles, arms, thighs, neck, and other areas. These “first on – last off” areas are ideal spots for liposuction.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) addresses the most obvious area of physical change after pregnancy: the stomach region. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are often stretched and pulled apart, and loose skin can accumulate in the midsection. A tummy tuck pulls the abdominal muscles taut and together, eliminates excess skin and fat, and tightens the remaining skin for a smoother, flatter appearance.

Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
Many new moms experience premature signs of aging in the face due to stress, fatigue, and sleep deprivation, as well as other factors. Injectable facial rejuvenation treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvéderm®, can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and augment facial features for a more youthful, refreshed look.
