The mommy makeover can significantly impact a woman's figure – and her life overall. For women who wish to reverse many unwanted side effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding, mommy makeover surgery can be a suitable option. However, that is not to say that women who are not mothers can't also benefit from a mommy makeover. The mommy makeover can be customized entirely to include skin excision, muscle repair, skin tightening, and body contouring procedures.

Dr. Katzen will curate the most appropriate surgical plan based on the patient's specific concerns, needs, goals, dreams, lifestyle, and other personal factors.

How can a mommy makeover help a woman who has never had kids?

Despite its name, the mommy makeover can be highly beneficial for women without children. Not only can mommy makeover surgery address many of the natural side effects of aging, but it can also be used to correct the cosmetic and functional consequences of extreme weight loss. Some of the most common concerns that lead patients – and non-mothers, in particular – to consider mommy makeover surgery include:

  • Loose skin after weight loss
  • Stretch marks
  • Droopy breasts
  • Lost breast volume
  • Deflated breasts
  • Crepey skin
  • Saggy buttocks
  • Stubborn fat

Can I still have kids after mommy makeover surgery?

Whether they have already had children or not, it is perfectly safe (and possible) to have children after a mommy makeover. However, patients must understand that getting pregnant after mommy makeover surgery may significantly compromise or even reverse the procedure's outcome, leading to the need for a second or subsequent surgery to restore their desired look. For this reason, patients uncertain about their plans for building a family are encouraged to wait until they know they are done having children before undergoing mommy makeover surgery. By deferring mommy makeover surgery until you are done building your family and maintaining a stable weight through diet and exercise, the results of mommy makeover surgery can last for many years. Think you're not a candidate for mommy makeover surgery because you don't have kids?
