Mommy Makeover: Cost, What It Is, & Best Treatments

February 18, 2024

Mothers make the world go round! Becoming a mother is one of the most meaningful life experiences, but it can also bring with it unwelcome physical changes. 

Stretch marks, loss of tone, and even facial changes are all common after pregnancy. Thankfully, there are plenty of “mommy makeover” treatments that can help you reverse many of those changes. 

In this post, we’ll explain what is a mommy makeover, let you know about our best mommy makeover treatments, and even touch on how much a mommy makeover costs. 


What Is a Mommy Makeover? 

The term “mommy makeover” can apply to any aesthetic treatment that’ll help you feel more confident after you’ve given birth. After all, going through pregnancy and becoming a parent can change your relationship with your body. 

On the physical front, it’s common to develop stretch marks or loose skin over the abdomen after pregnancy. The hormonal changes that come with pregnancy can also lead to issues like acne and melasma. Then, the sleepless nights that follow the birth of a baby can take a significant toll on the skin, often contributing to signs of aging like loss of tone and new wrinkles. 

Many women experience lower self-esteem after childbirth, so a mommy makeover can offer a major confidence boost. It can address any specific aesthetic concerns you have while also serving as an important reminder that you deserve to feel beautiful even now that you’re a mother. 

There are no rules about what your mommy makeover should look like. While the term is often used to refer to surgical interventions like tummy tucks or breast lifts, you don’t have to resort to extreme measures. There are a lot of minimally invasive treatments that can help target any skin or body concerns you might have, so you can feel more like yourself


Best Mommy Makeover Treatments 

Here are the best non-surgical treatments for new moms. They’ll target any skin or body concerns you might have, so you can feel more confidence in your body. 


1. Body Contouring With Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) with magnetic pulses to create a technology called (MP)². It targets fat tissue, cellulite, and collagen to reduce circumference and tone the body. It’s perfect for firming the abdomen postpartum!


2. Get Toned and Trim With TriLipo 

TriLipo is a body-shaping system that helps tone you up on every level, from the skin to fat to muscles. It features both radiofrequency and dynamic muscle activation, to target fat, tighten the skin, reduce cellulite, and stimulate muscles. This is a complete approach to body shaping!  


3. Reduce Stretch Marks With RF Microneedling 

Stretch marks and loose skin are very common after pregnancy, especially on the abdomen. Radiofrequency microneedling is one of the best solutions, thanks to tiny microneedles that disrupt and reduce scars, followed by radiofrequency that promotes tissue coagulation and new collagen production. The result is skin that looks firmer with significantly less noticeable stretch marks. 

RF microneedling is also highly effective at treating facial signs of aging and fatigue, like wrinkles and loss of tone! 


4. Target Stubborn Fat Using Ultrashape

Ultrashape is our strongest fat-targeting treatment that uses ultrasound to vaporize fat. If you’ve been struggling to drop inches or have stubborn post-pregnancy fat pockets, it’s one of the most effective non-surgical solutions. The stimulation from the ultrasound targets adipose tissue directly, and can result in up to 32% fat layer reduction in the treatment area. 


5. Feel Younger With Injectables 

If you feel like you look tired or like you’ve aged suddenly after childbirth, injectables are the quickest beauty pick-me-ups, helping you to immediately feel rejuvenated. Derma fillers like Juvederm help restore youthful volume while neuromodulators like Botox erase wrinkles. 


6. Keep it Light With a Facial 

Your mommy makeover doesn’t have to be intense. If you want a small confidence boost, a gentle facial like JetPeel or a Hydrafacial can help you relax while enhancing your glow. These treatments exfoliate and nourish gently, with products selected specifically for your skin’s unique post-pregnancy needs, such as hyperpigmentation or acne.  


How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

Since a mommy makeover can include a lot of different treatments, there’s also a lot of variation in how much a mommy makeover costs. 

A small treatment like an injectable or a facial can cost just $100-$500. If you decide to undergo several transformative body contouring or anti-aging facials or to try more invasive treatments, expect to pay as much as several thousands of dollars. A surgical mommy makeover will cost a lot more, with some procedures reaching five or six digits.
