Mommy Makeover

Motherhood is a time of life when many women take pride and happiness in watching their child grow. However, the aftermath of pregnancy can result in a combination of cosmetic imperfections like stretch marks, deflated breasts, excess abdominal tissue, and stubborn fat deposits. These issues can affect a woman’s self-confidence. A Mommy Makeover combines several surgical procedures at once to help women restore the body they once had or have always desired. Every mother deserves a treat, give Dr. Scott Aaronson a call to schedule a consultation in Palm Springs and find out which procedure is best for you.

What Areas Can a Mommy Makeover Correct?

Mommy Makeover Options

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, can correct changes to the abdomen caused by pregnancy, heredity, aging, or weight fluctuations. This procedure can tighten and firm the abdominal muscles and remove lax tissue to restore definition and contour the tummy.

Standard Tummy Tuck Surgery

  • Removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower abdomen
  • Tightens separated or weakened abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
  • Beneficial after multiple pregnancies

Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery

  • Removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen
  • Tightens separated or weakened abdominal muscles below the navel
  • Beneficial for patients with minimal excess skin whose abdominal laxity is confined to the lower abdomen


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can remove localized fat deposits using a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) to create a more youthful and slender body contour. This procedure can be used on the following trouble areas:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Thighs

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses saline or silicone breast implants to restore volume and fullness to the breasts. It can also improve symmetry and shape to help women who have deflated breasts achieve a more balanced and feminine figure.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery can restore the breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning remaining tissue for a firmer, more youthful aesthetic. The type of incision required for breast lift surgery will depend on the severity of your condition.

Your recovery period will depend on the number of procedures performed during your Mommy Makeover. Drainage tubes will be placed under your skin, and compression garments will be applied to the treated areas to support your new body contours. Make sure to avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. However, you should get up and walk around during the first few days to encourage circulation. You will be able to return to normal activities about three to six weeks after your surgery.
The type of incisions made during your Mommy Makeover procedure will depend on the extent of correction necessary to achieve your goals. Most incisions will be placed in concealable locations, and any resulting scars will fade over time.
The cost of your Mommy Makeover will depend on a number of factors including the techniques used, the extent of correction needed, surgical fees, and anesthesia fees. A price quote based on your personal needs will be provided to you during your consultation.
You will be prescribed oral medications to help reduce any pain or discomfort you may experience during recovery.
