What is Mommy Makeover

What is Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover is a combination of different plastic surgeries aimed at restoring the pre-pregnancy body. Since every woman is unique and differently affected by pregnancy, Mommy Makeover surgery is tailored to each patient's individual needs and desires.

The surgery can be done in one session or spread in several sessions, according to the preferences of the patient and the complexity of the surgeries.

Surgeries that are often involved in Mommy Makeover procedure are:

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

1. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that combines liposuction of the abdomen with removal of excess loose skin. At the same time, abdominal muscles are tightened. As a result, patients have a flatter and firmer abdomen.

2. Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is used to remove fat with the help of the suction technique from one targeted area, such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks or legs.

3. Breast Surgery

Many patients decide to include a breast lift or/and a breast augmentation surgery. Some women choose a breast reduction.

4. Vaginal Plastic Surgery

One of the most preferred vaginal plastic surgeries is the vaginoplasty, a procedure to tighten and repair the floor of the vagina. Others are  Labiaplasty and Perineoplasty.

Things you should know before your Mommy Makeover in Turkey:

  • The option of having multiple surgical procedures performed in a single combined surgery has the advantage of going only one time under anesthesia, as well as shortening the overall recovery time.
  • Important: If you want to have children in the future, you should wait to undergo Mommy Makeover procedure.
  • If you have recently given birth, the childbirth must have occurred at least 6 months ago and breastfeeding should have been discontinued at least 6 months prior to the procedure.
  • Please note that you can only undergo Mommy Makeover if you are overall healthy.
  • Since the Mommy Makeover combines multiple surgeries, the procedure carries more risks and complications, such as infection, bleeding, hematomas, poor incision healing, asymmetry, cardiac and pulmonary complications, inability to breastfeed, deep vein thrombosis, persistent pain, contour deformation and fat embolization.
  • Swelling, soreness, redness, irregularities and bumps are common occurrences after surgery.
  • We highly recommend to only considering board-certified plastic surgeons and trustworthy clinics for your Mommy Makeover.
  • Istanbul has a particularly large number of renowned clinics and highly qualified plastic surgeons with expertise in the field.
  • Plan at least 8 days for your Mommy Makeover surgery in Istanbul.
  • It is necessary to avoid alcohol and smoking at least 4 weeks before and after the surgery.
  • Since multiple procedures are involved, the recovery takes several months. It is important to follow the aftercare instructions recommended by your doctor.
  • You will have to wear compression garments for 4-6 weeks and compression stockings for at least 5 days. That’s why it can be a good idea to avoid the summer to go undergo a Mommy Makeover.
  • Please note that some procedures (like Tummy Tuck) will leave a scar.
  • Stitches are removed within 7 to 14 days. Afterwards, scar care is recommended. After removal of the stitches, patients are allowed to shower again. Taking baths should be postponed for 1.5 months.
  • Sauna and solarium visits as well as physical activity and full-scale sports are not allowed for at least 6 months.
  • Make sure that the operated area is not exposed to sunlight, as it can negatively affect the healing process.
  • It will take about 6 months to see final results.
  • Results are permanent or long-lasting depending on the surgery, but procedures like tummy tuck and liposuction are subject to weight changes.
Procedure of Mommy Makeover in Turkey

Procedure of Mommy Makeover in Turkey/ Istanbul:

The first step for your Mommy Makeover in Turkey is to send in your medical history and pictures of your body. During an online consultation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure and determine if you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover. You will also talk about your expectations and desired shape, and decide what surgeries are needed to achieve them (Liposuction, Breast augmentation/lift, Tummy Tuck, Labiaplasty, Lipofilling, Vaginoplasty etc.).

Once you arrive in Istanbul, you will be asked to the clinic for a consultation and an examination of your body. The Mommy Makeover surgery is typically scheduled for the next day. Since the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, you must come on an empty stomach. Before you are prepared for the surgery, a blood test will be performed.

The duration of a mommy makeover depends on how many surgeries are combined, but is usually between 3 and 8 hours. In most cases, you will spend 2 nights in the clinic under medical supervision. Before you are discharged from the clinic, your attending physician will check the operated areas, remove drains and inform you about aftercare.

In the days that follow, you will be asked to see your surgeon for another examination, during which your doctor may remove stitches. Before you leave for your home country, you will come to the clinic for a final check-up.

How much is Mommy Makeover in Turkey?

Prices for a regular mommy makeover in Istanbul depend on the combined procedures desired, but in many cases range from 8.000 € to 10.000 €
