Mommy Makeover Facts and Figures
Getting Your Pre-Baby Body Back
The term “Mommy Makeover” was coined in 2005 and has increased in popularity ever since. To restore your body to pre-pregnancy condition, a Mommy Makeover combines two or more plastic surgery procedures into one, lowering the cost and recovery time.
Doctors are often asked, “Am I too old for a mommy makeover?” The truth is that a majority of plastic surgery patients are over 34! According to the ASAPS, 43% of all 2012 cosmetic procedures were performed on patients ages 35 - 50.
Pregnancy is beautiful, but also takes a toll on your body. You’re not alone -- it happens to all moms! Many effects of pregnancy don’t just go away with time:
Loose or separated abdominal muscles
Loose Skin - Skin does not always regain elasticity
Weight gain due to hormones, lifestyle, and unbalanced diets
Loss of volume in breasts
Your hormones are changing as you age! 40-something women are experiencing a decrease in “nurturing” hormones estrogen and oxytocin, while testosterone levels are on the rise, increasing sex drive. Sounds great, right? The only problem is many 40-something women are also feeling self-conscious about their post-pregnancy bodies.
86% of moms say they feel less attractive post-pregnancy.
About 15% of married couples have not had sex with their spouse in the last 6 months to 1 year.
62% of moms say they would consider a mommy makeover if cost were not an issue.
With constant innovations to procedures, prosthetics, and instruments, cosmetic surgery is becoming more attainable than ever. In fact, 7 out of 10 cosmetic surgery patients make less than $60,000 a year.

Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are finished growing their families, and do not plan on having any more children.

Recovery time varies based on the elected procedures, but generally most patients will need at least two weeks off of work to recover before returning to normal activities.
