What is a “Mommy Makeover” surgery?

A Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic surgical procedure or set of procedures designed to address the physical changes that many women experience after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. These changes often include sagging breasts, stretched abdominal muscles, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn pockets of fat.

The Mommy Makeover is not a single procedure but a customized combination of surgeries and treatments to help women regain their pre-pregnancy body or enhance their overall appearance. ‘Mommy Makeover’ surgeries include tummy tuck, breast augmentation and lift, and liposuction.

Braun’s Special ‘Mommy Makeover’

The goal of a Mommy Makeover is to improve a woman's self-esteem and body confidence by addressing the physical changes that can occur due to pregnancy and childbirth. We evaluate each patient's individual features and create a personalized treatment plan that combines different surgeries to address their specific needs.

Because Mommy Makeover surgery covers a significant area, our skilled surgeons at Braun take into account the patient's overall body shape. They collaborate closely with anesthesiologists to ensure a safe and well-coordinated surgical process.

Types of ‘Mommy Makeover’ surgeries – Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a procedure that helps tighten abdominal muscles that may have stretched or sagged due to factors like rapid weight loss, pregnancy, or childbirth. Often, it's combined with liposuction.

At Braun, our abdominoplasty aims to restore a lovely waistline by eliminating loose abdominal skin and excess fat through liposuction and surgical skin removal.



Candidates for Tummy tuck

Through tummy tuck, we can create an ideal body line that is tailored to each individual's body shape.

  • 체크아이콘 If you have severe abdominal sagging caused by a loss of skin elasticity
  • 체크아이콘 If you have a lot of stretch marks from pregnancy and childbirth, and your skin and abdominal muscles have stretched
  • 체크아이콘 If your skin’s elasticity is not restored as a result of rapid weight loss
  • 체크아이콘 If you have a bumpy stomach despite regular exercise and diet
  • 체크아이콘 If you want to improve your sagging abdomen after liposuction

Types of ‘Mommy Makeover’ surgeries – Abdomen, Arm, Thigh Liposuction

Our goal is to achieve a seamless body contour by addressing stubborn fat deposits that resist traditional weight loss methods and by addressing uneven accumulations of excess skin and fat. Depending on the specific needs, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may be combined with liposuction to ensure the best results..

Types of Liposuction

In order to address various body complexes, Braun subdivides the liposuction site and performs surgery only on the areas that are essential to the patient.

Types of ‘Mommy Makeover’ surgeries
Breast lift and augmentation

A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate breasts that have sagged due to factors like aging or childbirth. It aims to restore firmness and elasticity to the breasts. In cases where there has also been a loss of breast volume, a breast augmentation may be combined with nipple surgery to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. This combination of procedures can help achieve a more youthful and balanced breast appearance.



Types of Breast Surgery at Braun

Each person possesses a distinct chest shape, which significantly influences the results of breast surgery. Additionally, achieving optimal outcomes involves considering factors like skin thickness and elasticity.

To address diverse breast concerns, Braun categorizes breast surgeries into breast augmentation, breast reduction, sagging breast lift, and nipple surgery. These procedures are tailored to the individual patient, focusing only on the specific areas necessary for a personalized chest enhancement.

Candidates for Braun’s Breast Augmentation

  • 체크아이콘 If you require surgery as a result of sagging breasts and nipple deformation after childbirth.
  • 체크아이콘 If you want a breast augmentation with natural-looking results
  • 체크아이콘 If you want to improve drooping, non-elastic breasts caused by aging or yo-yo dieting
  • 체크아이콘 If you want breast augmentation with minimal scarring
  • 체크아이콘 If you have uneven or asymmetric breasts



Surgery can be performed 1 year after childbirth. 

All surgeries carry the risk of swelling, scarring, infection, and bleeding, but if you proceed after consulting with an experienced specialist, you should be fine. 

The intensity of pain varies by individual, but the majority of patients experience minor discomfort, such as a foreign body sensation, rather than severe pain. However, pain medication is prescribed separately, and it is also part of the natural recovery process, so you should not be concerned. If you continue to experience severe pain and discomfort, you must contact a hospital and consult with a specialist. 

Although it depends on the specific surgical plan, breast surgery and liposuction typically require a 10-day recovery period, and abdominoplasty may cause discomfort in movement for up to 2 to 3 weeks. Exercise is possible after at least 2 months. 

It depends on the patient's skin type and condition, but scars usually start to clear up after 3 to 4 months and fade after 6 to 12 months. Scar ointment can be used during the first month after surgery, and scar laser treatment is allowed at 6 months. Furthermore, the incision is usually made inside the bikini line, so there are no visible scars.
