What does a mommy makeover include? It’s a question I hear often from Richmond women interested in a mommy makeover. This all-in-one procedure is famous for providing many of the corrections women desire after pregnancy or other major body changes. But what actually happens to your body during the procedure?
Mommy makeovers are highly customizable procedures, so they look a little different for each person. However, there are some common threads between most of the makeovers I perform. In this blog post, I’ll discuss 5 of the most popularly included mommy makeover procedures.
Adding implants to the breasts replaces lost fullness and corrects asymmetry common after breastfeeding. (Learn more about correcting breast asymmetry in this blog post.) Breast augmentation results can be subtle, simply restoring the breasts to their pre-baby size. Or, if you have always wanted a bit of a size increase, this can help you achieve that.
Cost: At my Richmond practice, breast augmentation prices start at $5,700 for saline implants or $6,000 for silicone implants.

If you are experiencing stretched skin, a deflated look to the breasts, and drooping or sagging, you will likely benefit from a breast lift. This procedure rejuvenates the breasts by lifting them to a higher position, raising down-pointing nipples, and creating a firmer, more youthful shape.
Cost: Breast lift pricing starts at $6,295.

Pregnancy can be a beautiful and rewarding experience, but it can also leave behind stretched skin, weakened or separated abdominal muscles, and a “pooch” that resists even the best diet and exercise efforts. A tummy tuck (or “abdominoplasty”) resolves all of these issues by removing excess skin, repairing the abdominal muscles, and creating a flatter, firmer look that more closely resembles a pre-pregnancy tummy.
Cost: The price of a tummy tuck at my Richmond practice starts at $6,950.

Stubborn fat is often an unwelcome side effect of having children. Areas such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs are naturally predisposed to store fat, and weight gain during pregnancy often exacerbates this. While liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, it does reduce fat in these stubborn areas to help you reclaim a silhouette you love.
Cost: Liposuction pricing starts at $4,300.

Brazilian Butt Lift
Have you ever wished you could take the fat out of your abdomen and move it into your buttocks? It’s possible with a Brazilian butt lift. This body contouring procedure removes excess fat in unwanted spots via liposuction and transfers it to an area where it can provide a natural volume boost.
Cost: The price of a Brazilian butt lift starts at $8,950.
