What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a restorative surgical procedure that helps mothers regain their pre-pregnancy body and look and feel youthful. It’s a way of proactively making changes to help you achieve the body you desire.
A mommy makeover combines surgical and non-surgical approaches to empower new mothers to regain their previous body shape. It is a group of tailored procedures which plastic surgeon in Dubai suggest only after examining the mother’s body on an individual basis. It includes major procedures like tummy tuck, breast augmentation, buttock augmentation and labiaplasty, and more minor procedures such as face contouring and mini liposuction to remove localised fat pockets.
Why choose a mommy makeover?
Every woman’s reasons for opting for a mommy makeover are unique. Typically, you might go for a mommy makeover if:
- You have had multiple pregnancies and want to regain your pre-baby body.
- You have significant post-pregnancy issues, for example an oversized tummy, fat gain, enlarged breasts, back pain due to heavy breasts, separated diastasis recti muscles, loose or excess skin or changed waistline contours.
- Despite having a healthy diet and exercise you aren’t able to lose stubborn fat and get back to your pre-pregnancy body shape.
- You have no future pregnancy plans and have completed breastfeeding.
Which procedures can be included in a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover plan is tailored according to each mother’s individual needs. A typical plan might include a combination of surgical procedures to remove excess fat deposits, tighten the skin and reshape contours. A mommy makeover may involve the following parts of the body:
- Abdomen – For removal of upper and lower fat, reduction of bulging, excess skin removal and tightening core muscle walls
- Arms – To remove sagging skin on the underside of the arms
- Breasts – Breast augmentation with or without implants, breast reduction or uplift
- Face – For rectifying double chin or to reduce a bulky appearance of the face
- Inner thigh area- To remove localised fat in the inner thigh area
- Lower back
- Outer thigh area
- Upper and mid-back
- Waistline or top of hips
- Genital rejuvenation – including labiaplasty and fat grafting to labia majora
What are the essential treatments offered with a mommy makeover in Dubai?
Breast augmentation, also known as “boob-job” and “augmentation mammoplasty”, gives volume to breasts, which can be lost after pregnancy. It is done by an implant insertion or autologous fat transfer to create the desired volume, rounded shape and symmetry in the breasts.
Breast augmentation can also be done as part of breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery. Dr Adnan uses highly advanced Motiva implants that are lighter, durable and ergonomic, fitting in the breast pocket and mimicking the feel of natural breasts.
Dr Adnan may also choose to augment your breast with “autologous fat transfer”, in which the body’s own muscles, fat, and tissues are used as a natural filler to create breast volume, adapting to fit in the breast pocket soon after surgery. Recovery takes two to four weeks.
Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, removes excessive or saggy breast skin and tightens breast tissue, muscles and skin to achieve more appealing breast contours. Sometimes it is done at the same time as breast augmentation.
A woman’s breasts undergo massive changes after pregnancy, sometimes leaving them saggy, drooping or out of shape. Breast lift makes them firmer, more supported and gives them an enhanced shape. If saggy skin extends to the areolar region, this can also be corrected during breast lift surgery.
Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, improves the buttocks’ contour, size and shape with implants, fat grafting or both.
What are buttock implants?
Buttock implants are silicone gel-filled devices placed in the buttocks to give them a well-rounded look.
The same results can also be achieved with autologous fat transfer and grafting. Here Dr Adnan creates buttock volume by using the body’s own tissue and fats.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess abdominal fat, strengthens weakened abdominal muscle walls and tightens skin to create a smooth and toned abdomen.
A tummy tuck surgery is full or partial, recommended according to the individual’s needs once they have been assessed by Dr Adnan. Partial abdominoplasty is a customisable, small tummy tuck procedure in which below-navel fat is removed and the area is then toned. In a full abdominoplasty, the entire abdomen undergoes surgery. Multiple incisions are made above and below the navel to remove excess fat deposits. Abdominoplasty may be accompanied by liposuction.
A tummy tuck is a highly skilled procedure in a mommy makeover. For the best results, choose a surgeon with the experience and expertise to create a beautiful shape skilfully and competently. Anything less may result in visible scars, results that don’t last long or just don’t look right. Rest assured that Dr Adnan is one of the best plastic surgeons in Dubai, with extensive experience in complicated cosmetic surgeries, including complete mommy makeover surgery.
Liposuction, also referred to as” lipo”, “lipoplasty” and “body contouring“, is a surgical technique using suction to remove excess fat deposits and reshape the affected areas. It is recommended for areas of stubborn body fat that won’t shift after conventional weight management practice (exercise +diet). It can be done alone or in conjunction with a breast lift, face lift or tummy tuck. It can be performed on the thighs, abdomen, face, arms, chin, cheeks and many other areas where fat deposits.
Liposuction can be done post-pregnancy to aid weight loss and reshape problem areas, especially the abdomen. Although liposuction improves body contours, it does not guarantee sustainable weight management and the candidate must be willing to adopt an active lifestyle and healthy diet.
Although the skin naturally loses its firmness due to ageing, liposuction results can be long-lasting alongside an effective weight management programme. Unfortunately, if you gain weight after liposuction, the fat will re-accumulate in existing fat pockets and your body shape will change once again.
Mothers’ experience of mommy makeover

During your initial consultation with Dr Adnan, you can decide how many and what kind of individual procedures will be included in your personal “mommy makeover plan”.

What is the total cost of mommy makeover surgery in Dubai?
As discussed, mommy makeover surgery is based on each individual mother’s needs and so the cost varies from patient to patient. However, the following factors influence the total cost of the procedure.
Number of procedures required
Mommy makeover comprises multiple procedures, including major surgery tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Dr Adnan identifies each mother’s individual needs and expectations and tailor-makes a programme according to recommended surgical procedures. This means that the cost will vary depending on how many procedures you have and their complexity.
Target areas and volume of work for individual procedures
The amount of work required during surgery may vary according to each mother’s individual case. For example, a tummy tuck in an obese woman requires more work than one in a slim woman, which may increase the surgery’s complexity and therefore its cost.
Be assured that Dr Adnan quotes fairly for the work involved in each individual case and offer a package optimised for each mum seeking a beautiful new body. This means that you receive the best possible outcome that offers the results you expect and value for money too.
Complexity of procedures
Complexity varies from mum to mum and procedure to procedure. For example, a breast augmentation with flap reconstruction may cost more than a breast augmentation with implants. The cost will also depend on the types of implant usage and other surgical procedures performed at the same time, for example breast augmentation with breast lift; tummy tuck with liposuction.
Is mommy makeover worth it?
Dr Adnan’s wealth of experience and expertise means high definition results for mums undergoing mommy makeover surgery in Dubai. Investing in a mommy makeover will reward you long-term with enhanced self-esteem, body satisfaction and long-lasting results.
What are the risks associated with mommy makeover?
Dr Adnan will explain each procedure’s details and possible risks associated with the mommy makeover surgery in Dubai. For example, risks include implant leakage, bleeding and delayed healing. However, a surgeon as experienced as Dr Adnan will always ensure the lowest chance of risks and the best possible results.
Know that for breast augmentation, Dr Adnan uses Motiva implants, highly advanced, ergonomic implants that cause the least discomfort, are leak-proof, sustainable, and do not distort or flatten the shape of the breasts with movement and changes in posture.
How long does it take to recover from mommy makeover surgery?
The recovery period and downtime required will vary from patient to patient depending on how the surgery incisions heal and how the body’s tissues respond to procedures. Tummy tuck may require two to four weeks to recover and resume work; however, full recovery can take several months.
Dr Adnan can advise on a case-by-case basis.
Are the results of mommy makeover permanent?
The results are sustainable as long as you put effort in to maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise. Know that a mommy makeover is not a “quick fix” to lose weight and shed excess fat. Without your own input, fat will simply re-accumulate in areas like the hips, thighs, abdomen and breasts and the results of your makeover will be short-lived.
