How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

Mommy Makeover costs in Toronto start at $19,999. The price you end up paying will depend on which procedures and techniques are used in the process.

Most Mommy Makeovers combine one or more types of treatments that range in cost, including but not limited to breast augmentation (or breast lift surgery), tummy tuck surgery, multiple-site body liposuction treatments, and cellulite reduction treatments. Patients who opt for more procedures can expect a higher final bill than those who stick with a few specific treatments.

It’s worth noting that Mommy Makeover costs in Canada can also range significantly from location to location and from doctor to doctor. Every mom’s body is unique, as well; we recommend booking a consultation with the talented SpaMedica team today to get an accurate estimate.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From a Mommy Makeover?

Most patients require approximately 1-4 weeks’ worth of recovery time, mainly 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.

How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take?

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.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to address multiple areas of the body that are affected by pregnancy. The goal is to bring back the pre-pregnancy figure, restore breast volume and size, enhance abdominal walls, and remove unwanted fat. A combination of procedures can be customized to meet the specific needs and goals of individual patients.
The surgical treatments included in a Mommy Makeover at SpaMedica in Toronto generally include the following:

  • Breast Augmentation. Also known as a boob job, a breast augmentation in Toronto involves using breast implants or a fat transfer to increase the fullness and shape of the breasts while also lifting them to improve their asymmetry.
  • Breast Lift. A breast lift makes the breasts perkier by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to give you a more youthful appearance.
  • Breast Reduction. A breast reduction involves removing excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts to alleviate discomfort and provide the patient with youthful-looking, perkier breasts.
  • Tummy Tuck. A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin in the abdominal area to create a more firm, sculpted stomach.
  • Circumferential Abdominoplasty. This procedure involves removing excess sagging skin and fat and then “lifting the body” – shaping and toning the underlying tissue for a sculpted, firm appearance.
  • Liposuction. Liposuction slims areas of the body by removing excess fat and making the body more proportionate.

Depending on the postpartum degenerative changes that have occurred, such as advanced cellulite of the buttocks, posterior, outer and/or anterior thighs, non-surgical cellulite reduction treatments and surgical cellulite treatments may also be deployed. These include Cellulaze™ and CelluTite™.

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.

Who is a Mommy Makeover Candidate?

Good candidates for Mommy Makeovers in Toronto are patients who want to significantly improve their figure, shape, and form after bearing children and breastfeeding.

You are a great candidate for a mommy makeover if:

  • You are in good health
  • You are at a stable body weight
  • You are finished with childbearing
  • You have no infections at the time of the procedure

Common Mommy Makeover Treatment Areas

A Mommy Makeover typically involves improving the appearance of the abdomen and breasts after pregnancy and childbirth or when the aging process starts a bit earlier than you’d like. A top specialist in Mommy Makeover in Toronto, SpaMedica aims to restore a youthful appearance by lifting areas of your body, removing excess skin and fat, and increasing breast lift and volume.

Most commonly, a Mommy Makeover involves a form of breast surgery and tummy tuck – the main areas affected during motherhood. However, a Mommy Makeover can also involve a combination of procedures, including:

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

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 pre-pregnancy bikini body ready in no time.

Enhanced Cleavage

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.

Mommy Makeover Risks

You should not seek out a Mommy Makeover if you are pregnant, intend to be pregnant, have any infections at the time of your procedure(s), are in poor health, or experience rapid fluctuations in your weight – getting surgery when going through any of these things can be a considerable risk to your health.

Risks pertaining to the procedures themselves and aftercare include but are not limited to:

Bleeding

Operations that involve incisions into the skin can sometimes lead to excessive bleeding and, in extreme cases, blood clots.

Infection

Infection of the incision sites or other treated areas is a possible risk that comes with any type of surgery.

Inability to Breastfeed

While breastfeeding is often possible after a Mommy Makeover, this may not always be the case.

Scarring

All surgery involves the creation of scars, and while Mommy Makeovers are done surgically, great care is taken to place incisions in locations that will be as discreet as possible.

Recurrent Loose Skin

In some cases, the skin may not contract as tightly as desired or lose its elasticity over time.

Pain

Any permanent changes to the body, regardless of how positively life-changing they may be, are bound to cause some degree of pain. SpaMedica takes great care to ensure that you have access to the proper pain relief medications.

Fat Embolization

Fat embolization is a rare, but serious risk that can occur during liposuction. This occurs when fat cells are released into the bloodstream and cause blockages in the lungs or other vital organs.

Anesthesia

Anesthesia is an essential part of ensuring patients’ comfort both in the lead-up to and after Mommy Makeover surgery. It comes with potential side effects, however, including nausea and vomiting.

How to Prepare for a Mommy Makeover

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 ensure that your breasts have reached their final post-breastfeeding shape and size. You may also be asked to:

  • Receive a full medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements

What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover

The very talented Dr. Bell took over for him after working with him for many years and learning his award-winning ways, and Dr. Bell will be taking great care of you during your procedure(s)!

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 their confidence.

Mommy Makeover Recovery & Timeline

  1. Initial Recovery. Most Mommy Makeovers last 3-4 hours or less, and have a recovery timeline that lasts 1 – 2 weeks. More time will be needed to recover from advanced procedures, especially 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 also need a little more time to recover.
  2. Low-Impact Activities. 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.
  3. Get Moving Early. 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. Our highly trained staff will help mobilize patients and get them moving early during this time.
  4. Healing. 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.
  5. Garments for Optimal Results. 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.
  6. Draining. Small drains may be 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.
  7. Removing the Drains. 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 Toronto 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 non-surgical treatments is another reason SpaMedica is renowned for its excellent body contouring results.

Best Procedures Paired with Mommy Makeover

Fat grafting for the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift) and fat grafting for breasts are commonly paired with Mommy Makeover procedures to provide a fully proportionate physique and remove excess fat in unwanted areas to provide volume in desired areas. Additionally, many clients opt for Cellulite Reduction as dimpling in areas like the stomach, thighs, and buttocks is quite common after pregnancy and childbirth.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

How Painful is it to Get a Mommy Makeover?

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!

Should I Have the Procedure If I Plan to Have More Children?

Most specialists would advise a candidate for a Mommy Makeover against the procedure if they plan on having more children. But can you have more kids after Mommy Makeover surgery? Of course! It’s safe for both you and your child. However, your pregnancy following a Mommy Makeover will affect the longevity of your results. Abdominal skin will re-stretch like it did pre-pregnancy, some localized fat collections re-deposit, and any breast enhancements may also change.

How Long Will the Results of My Mommy Makeover Last?

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 you cannot shed through diet and exercise, typically in the hip, flank, and outer/inner thigh areas and sometimes the inner knees and arms.

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 warranted for life.

How Much Weight Do You Lose with a Mommy Makeover?

The weight you can lose during a mommy makeover varies. If you’re getting a breast reduction or tummy tuck, you will lose weight by removing excess skin and fat. However, you will not lose weight through a cellulite reduction procedure. Most Mommy Makeover patients report losing their post-baby weight, usually between 5 and 25 pounds.

How is a Mommy Makeover Performed by Dr. Tom Bell?

SpaMedica’s Mommy Makeover treatments are performed by our leading physician, Dr. Tom Bell. Revered as Canada’s Most Reputable and Experienced Plastic Surgeon, he boasts over 25 years of success stories in the areas of both cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Bell’s approach to a Mommy Makeover is the same as any other procedure. It starts off with a comprehensive consultation with the mother herself to understand what goals, concerns, and results she’s looking for.

Once a plan has been decided upon, the doctor schedules an operation date. The procedure is done in-office and typically takes between two to four hours depending on the work that needs to be done. In most cases, everything is handled within the same visit.

What Should I Wear Home from the Hospital After a Mommy Makeover?

After a tummy tuck or breast lift, augmentation, or reduction, you will want to wear compression garments suggested by your surgeon. Try to keep your clothing loose and baggy (think stretchy sweatpants and a big hoodie) both on your way to your surgery and during the weeks afterwards. You’ll want to wear your compression garment at all times for 6 weeks after your procedure (you can take it off when bathing).

After 6-8 weeks, you can start easing into jeans and tighter tops, but take precautions, talk to your doctor about any concerns, and listen to your body if you feel uncomfortable.

What Supplies Do I Need After a Mommy Makeover?

If you have received a tummy tuck, lower body lift, back lift, arm lift, thigh lift, or liposuction, you will want to have:

  • Gauze for dressing wounds
  • Tape for dressings
  • Disposable gloves
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Alcohol pads
  • Band-Aids
  • If approved by your surgeon, over-the-counter pain medication like Advil
  • Mild soap

It’s time to achieve the body you’ve been dreaming of! Contact the SpaMedica team and book a consultation with Dr. Bell today for the best Mommy Makeover in Toronto.
