mother playing with childAll women experience changes to their body as a result of pregnancy. Along with weight gain in atypical places, new mothers often have stretch marks and sagging in their midsection as well as deflated breasts after nursing. There are a variety of cosmetic procedures that address these concerns, but many women choose only one due to financial limitations or time restraints. The Mommy Makeover is one of Dr. Hiatt’s favorite procedures because it can improve all the areas of the body that mothers find troublesome. Since it is a customized combination of procedures, the Mommy Makeover is more cost-effective and time-efficient than if the patient were to get all the procedures done separately.

The Mommy Makeover consists of two or more of the following procedures:

  • Breast Augmentation

  • Breast Lift/Breast Reduction

  • Tummy Tuck

  • Liposuction

Which procedures do I need?

Dr. Hiatt will help you determine which combination of procedures will best meet your particular needs during a consultation at his practice. Each procedure will accomplish the following:

Breast Augmentation:

  • Increases the size of the breasts

  • Improves the shape of the breasts

Breast Lift:

  • Corrects sagging breasts

  • Improves breast shape

  • Reduces the size of the areolas, if needed

Full Tummy Tuck:

  • Tightens abdominal muscles

  • Repairs diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation caused by pregnancy)

  • Removes excess skin above and below the navel

  • Reduces excess fat above and below the navel

  • Removes stretch marks if they are located on the skin that is removed

Mini Tummy Tuck:

  • Reduces excess skin in the lower abdomen

  • Removes excess fat in the lower abdomen


  • Removes excess fat from many troublesome areas of the body

  • (Will not remove excess skin)

The Mommy Makeover is performed on an outpatient basis and involves general anesthesia. Recovery time will vary among patients, but most patients feel comfortable resuming their typical activities after four to six weeks. The results of this procedure are permanent unless the patient gains a significant amount of weight or becomes pregnant again.
