Mommy Makeover costs in Toronto will depend upon the combination of procedures and techniques used. In general, most Mommy Makeovers, which combine one or more of the following; breast augmentation, (or breast lift surgery), tummy tuck surgery, multiple-site body liposuction treatments, and cellulite reduction treatments start at $17,999.
Most patients require approximately 1-4 weeks’ worth of recovery time, especially if the combination of procedures includes breast implants and breast augmentation surgery combined with high tech modern liposuction treatments such as Bodytite™ and/or Smartlipo™. Those who undergo a tummy tuck may need a little more time to recover.
Because a Mommy Makeover is not a single procedure, its total duration will depend on which surgeries you are opting for. Expect your makeover to take anywhere between 3 – 6 hours.
Procedures may be performed on the breasts, tummy, and other areas where you wish to remove unwanted fat and skin. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical and nonsurgical treatments that lead to the restoration and rejuvenation of a more youthful, tighter, shapely and flattering female figure.
The surgical treatments included in a Mommy Makeover at SpaMedica in Toronto generally include the following:
Depending on the postpartum degenerative changes that have occurred, such as advanced cellulite of the buttocks, posterior, outer and/or anterior thighs, nonsurgical cellulite reduction treatments and surgical cellulite treatments may also be deployed. These include Cellulaze™ and CelluTite™.
The nonsurgical components of a Mommy Makeover are part of your program, in that they are added after your procedure at no additional cost and can completely improve your results. These include:
With modern anesthetic techniques, most Mommy Makeovers in Canada can be performed under IV sedation and even less invasive anesthetic techniques. Most Mommy Makeovers last 3-4 hours or less, and your recovery time will generally last 1 – 2 weeks.
Good candidates for Mommy Makeovers in Toronto are patients who want to achieve a significant improvement in their figure, shape, and form after bearing children and breastfeeding.
Individuals who are or may be pregnant at the time of the procedure, have unrealistic expectations, are medically unwell, or have inflammatory, infectious lesions or skin cancers in the areas of intended treatment are not well-suited to the Mommy Makeover procedure.
Better Shape and Tighter, More Youthful Skin
Increased breast projection, volume and lifting are combined with tummy and thigh contouring to greatly improve shape contour and tighten skin.
Removal of Stretch Marks
When you become pregnant, your skin stretches quickly to accommodate your growing baby. Mothers often can often become critical of these stretch marks on their postpartum tummy skin. Though with the proper procedure within your Mommy Makeover plan, we can minimize stretch marks and get your bikini body ready in no time.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, breasts tend to droop. With a breast lift or augmentation, your cohesive gel implants feel much more natural than older saline-filled breast implants and come with a lifetime warranty.
A More Dramatic Effect
Rather than drawing out your transformation through several months or years, a Mommy Makeover allows you to do everything at once, meaning you’ll see significant changes in a short amount of time.

When preparing for a Mommy Makeover in Canada, you should ideally be around your goal weight, as most procedures involve the removal of excess skin and reshaping. Aim for a 10-15 lb range of your goal weight before booking your appointment.
If you are breastfeeding, it’s smart to wait to book your appointment up to 6 months after you finish. This will help assure that your breasts have reached their final post-breastfeeding shape and size. You may also be asked to:
Patients are generally extremely pleased with their resulting aesthetic contours, shape and form post Mommy Makeover. Dr. Mulholland, SpaMedica’s former Lead Surgeon, has performed many Mommy Makeovers on television shows such as Cityline, Global’s Entertainment Tonight, and CTV’s eTalk, and the results of these treatments can be viewed right here on our website.
If you’re considering a Mommy Makeover, you likely understand that diet and exercise can only accomplish so much and do not help with skin laxity, stretch marks, breast volume loss, droopiness, and muscle weakness. Many moms enjoy restoring their pre-pregnancy body and regaining her confidence.
Most patients require approximately 1-2 weeks’ worth of recovery time, especially if the combination of procedures includes breast implants and breast augmentation surgery combined with high tech modern liposuction treatments such as Bodytite™ and/or Smartlipo™. Those who undergo a tummy tuck may need a little more time to recover.
Mommy makeovers involving a combined full tummy tuck surgery with muscle tummy tightening and repair, and a breast augmentation performed under the muscle, all in combination with liposuction surgery, will usually require 2-3 weeks before being able to return to the low-impact activities of daily living such as work, routine childcare, and housework.
However, 1-3 weeks of recovery following a Mommy Makeover does not mean that patients are immobile. At SpaMedica in Toronto, we believe in early ambulation and movement, even on the first day. Most patients are kept overnight for a safe first night of observation. During this time, our highly trained staff will help mobilize patients and get them moving early.
During your two or so-week recovery period, you will be seen approximately 3-4 more times at SpaMedica, where your dressings will be changed, the progress of your surgical healing assessed, and recommendations made.
During your recovery period, you will also wear a soft, supportive bra to keep your breast augmentation and implants in place, and a liposuction body contouring garment for your tummy tuck and liposuction procedures. This garment will effectively “shrinkwrap” your skin, ensuring the best possible skin contours and shapes result.
There may additionally be small drains deployed under your skin following your abdominal skin tightening treatment, whether you underwent BodyTite™, SmartLipo™, advanced liposuction surgery, a mini tummy tuck, or a standard tummy tuck surgery. These drains are placed under the skin in the operative pocket to help facilitate the removal of lymphatic fluid until your lymphatic system can take over.
Generally, after 10-14 days, all tummy drains are removed. Small drains may also be used in your breast augmentation surgery to reduce significantly any initial swelling and turgid distension that is sometimes associated with breast augmentation surgery. Typically, these are removed after 3 days.
The SpaMedica “After Mommy Makeover” Program
Starting about 12 weeks after your Liposuction procedure, SpaMedica Mommy Makeover patients begin the second phase of their Body Contouring journey. During this phase, all Mommy Makeover patients undergo additional non-surgical skin tightening, localized fat reduction and muscle toning procedures that come with your Mommy Makeover (at no additional cost).
The addition of the non-surgical treatments is another reason SpaMedica is renowned for its excellent body contouring results.
The amount of pain and discomfort you experience will largely depend on the type of tummy correction you require, whether muscle tightening is necessary or not, and the type of breast augmentation and breast implant or lift technique deployed (under the muscle or above). In general, however, women who have undergone childbirth find Mommy Makeover surgery far less painful and just as pleasing, since it is a lifelong, rewarding adventure!
Most Mommy Makeover advice will warn against having this procedure if you are thinking about having more children. But can you have more kids after Mommy Makeover surgery? Of course! It’s safe for both you and your child. Though your pregnancy following a Mommy Makeover will affect the longevity of your results. Abdominal skin will re-stretch, some localized fat collections re-deposit, and any breast enhancements may change as well.
The results of your Mommy Makeover procedure should last the rest of your life. Modern liposuction techniques will permanently remove any unwanted post-baby fat that you are unable to shed through diet and exercise, typically in the hip, flank, and outer/inner thigh areas and sometimes the inner knees and arms as well.
As long as you exhibit self-control, and engage in moderate exercise and weight maintenance, the improvements you see will be lifelong. The results of your breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery will also be lifelong, as modern cohesive gel breast implants are warrantied for life.
