At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, we understand that children can “bless” your body with saggy breasts, lax abdominal muscles, and an overall body shape that feels less than desirable. That’s why we offer mommy makeovers! A mommy makeover can restore your body to its pre-baby glory by lifting your breasts, shrinking your waistline, and much more.
What Are The Benefits Of A DC Mommy Makeover?
Each mommy makeover procedure will be unique. The procedure will differ depending on what a patient is looking for. Typically, mommy makeovers involve a tummy tuck, breast enhancements, liposuction, and/or a breast lift. All of these various procedures can be done at once, that way you are back to your everyday life quicker!
You can schedule a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown, and go over any and all questions you may have regarding your plastic surgery journey.
A combination of DC mommy makeover procedures may include:
- Removal of excess skin
- Removal of loose skin
- Removal of hanging skin
- Lifting the breasts
- Enhancing the breasts
- Contouring the waist
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks, particularly stretch marks after pregnancy

What Is The Recovery Period Like For A Mommy Makeover In DC?
Our expert surgeons at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery have decades of experience performing safe and effective procedures.
Risks associated with surgery are greatly minimized when you choose a qualified plastic surgeon whose number one priority is your safety and satisfaction.
You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Bruno or Dr. Brown to discuss your mommy makeover surgery, your treatment plan, the recovery time, and more.
Our practice understands that being a mom is a full-time job! We know that putting your life on pause is nearly impossible, which is why many people chose to do multiple procedures at once with a mommy makeover. The mommy makeover has a relatively short recovery time of 2-3 weeks. We try to get you back on your feet as soon as possible following the procedure.
Am I A Candidate For A Mommy Makeover?
Are you wondering if you are a candidate for a mommy makeover? Our Washington DC plastic surgery team can help you decide whether or not you qualify.
You may be a good candidate if:
- You are not breastfeeding
- You are at least four to six months post-childbirth
- You are close to your ideal body weight
Before deciding if you’re ready for a mommy makeover, ask yourself if you’re done having children and if you’re still breastfeeding. This procedure usually includes a breast lift and tummy tuck, which could complicate future pregnancies or breastfeeding.
If you are more than 10-15 pounds from your goal weight, you might want to wait to have surgery as any additional weight loss can cause sagging. Most patients have their surgery 6-12 months after the birth of a child.
DC Mommy Makeover Reviews
We interviewed a former patient of ours regarding their mommy makeover experience:
Results were amazing. They exceeded my expectations. There was no way I could diet and exercise and get the body back that I wanted.
You can’t do anything about excess skin, folded skin, and I had twins! So I had a lot of extra skin.
