Mommy Makeover
Newport News & Williamsburg

Home » Mommy Makeover

Being a mom is a miracle and can be incredibly rewarding for mothers everywhere. Even pregnancy has its magical moments, as many mothers know, though the toll it takes on your body can be extensive and far less welcome than the beautiful baby you’re bringing into the world. As your body works to accommodate a growing baby and prepare for breastfeeding, you will likely notice a series of obvious changes in your body, namely the enlargement and swelling of the breasts, expansion of the lower abdomen, reallocation of fat storage, and skin blemishes.

While these changes may be temporary, they can often have a permanent impact on your body. For mothers who wish to reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies after having children, our specialized Mommy Makeover in Newport News and Williamsburg could be a perfect option for you.

What Is A
Mommy Makeover?

The term “Mommy Makeover” refers to a highly customized set of cosmetic procedures designed to address your personal breast and body concerns after pregnancy and childbirth. Each Mommy Makeover is highly personalized, built, and customized just for you, though many mothers have a series of concerns that are most frequently addressed. These concerns include the appearance of sagging breasts, loss of volume in the breasts, loose skin or excess fat on the lower abdomen, and pockets of fat elsewhere on the body resistant to diet and exercise.

Mommy Makeover Treats:

  • Sagging or deflated breasts
  • Excess abdominal skin and fat
  • Stubborn pockets of fat
  • Stretch marks
  • Muscle separation in the abdomen
  • Loss of abdominal muscle tone
  • Changes in nipple appearance
  • Changes in breast volume and shape
  • Unwanted cesarean section scars
  • Other aesthetic concerns occurring after childbirth

Mommy Makeover Procedures Often Include:

Breast Lift and/or Breast Augmentation

During pregnancy, the breasts swell and enlarge to prepare the body for breastfeeding. While breasts do often return to their normal size after breastfeeding, the breast’s skin may not return to normal so easily. The added weight of the extra volume during pregnancy and breastfeeding can impact the elasticity and integrity of the breast skin, resulting in loose, excess skin and a droopy or sagging appearance.

To rectify this issue, many mothers include a mastopexy, otherwise known as a breast lift, as a part of their mommy makeover surgery. In this procedure, your surgeon will remove excess skin and lift the breast into a perkier, more youthful position. A breast lift with augmentation may be a worthwhile choice for those who have also experienced a loss in volume in their breasts or simply wish to enhance their natural size. While breast lifts alone do not add volume, breast lifts with augmentation include breast implants to improve the shape and add fullness to the breasts.

Tummy Tuck

For many mothers, the lower abdomen does not return to its original shape after pregnancy. You may find stubborn fat deposits in and around your abdomen, punctuated by loose, hanging skin that has lost elasticity during your pregnancy. Some mothers may even experience pain or weakness in the abdomen because the vertical muscles of the abdominal wall have separated during pregnancy.

Because of this, many mothers choose to include an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, as part of their mommy makeover surgery. In this procedure, your surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin. In addition, your surgeon will also be able to repair and strengthen the underlying abdominal muscles, mitigating any discomfort and providing you with a smoother, more toned abdominal area.


Many mothers retain additional pockets of excess fat after losing associated baby weight after pregnancy. The reason for this is that fat cells, once gained, will not go away naturally. Instead, they simply grow or shrink in size depending on biological factors. For many women and mothers, these fat deposits form around the abdomen, hips, and thighs, refusing to go away even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. In these cases, liposuction may be a perfect addition to your mommy makeover procedure.

Using small incisions in the skin and a specialized tool called a cannula, liposuction surgically and permanently removes subcutaneous fat deposits, helping sculpt and contour the body. A liposuction is a great option for women who plan to have both this procedure and a tummy tuck done in tandem, removing fat and resulting excess skin for the best results.

Patient Testimonial

I had an awesome experience with Dr. Vonu as well as his staff. I had lost a substantial amount of weight that left me with loose skin that exercise alone couldn’t get rid of. After my consultation it was determined that the Mommy Makeover is what I needed. Although I was very nervous, Dr Vonu and his staff were reassuring. Any questions or concerns I had after surgery they were quick to answer. I will definitely be going back to have my arms done. Thank you so much for helping restore my confidence!
