At our world-class facility in Ottawa, mommy makeover is a common procedure for women after childbirth. This surgery varies from patient to patient. Your surgeon will guide you through the options during your consultation and settle on a surgical plan that works for you.
Dr. Silverman and Dr. Boyd strive to deliver the best mommy makeover in Ottawa while placing patient saftey as a top priority. Below, we’ve included information about the procedure, but if you have any other questions, or would like to book a consultation, please contact us today!
What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
Undergoing several procedures at once rather than spacing them apart can save you time and money, make recovery less physically taxing, and allow you to experience multiple transformations from just a single procedure.
Dr. Silverman and Dr. Boyd are careful to plan all mommy makeover surgeries so that the procedures can be completed efficiently and safely. If your surgeon determines a staged procedure would better benefit your overall health, he or she will recommend accomplishing your goals with more than one surgery and allowing time to heal in between.
Who are the Best Candidates for a Mommy Makeover?
At our practice, we have the joys of seeing many different candidates for this surgery. Since we’re grouping a few procedures together, we get a multitude of different candidates. Typically, on a day-to-day basis, our Ottawa mommy makeover patients include:
- New moms who want to get back their pre-pregnancy body
- Women looking in receive multiple surgeries at once
*We do ask that our candidates have realistic expectations of the procedures and do not smoke, as smoking can lead to complications.
What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Common mommy makeovers include procedures that target the areas most affected by a pregnancy, like a breast lift or breast augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty; however, you may also choose to include a thigh, buttock, arm lift, Brazilian butt lift, or facial enhancements, dermal fillers, skincare, or BOTOX.
Patient safety is always our most important concern, and there are limitations as to which surgeries may be combined in one procedure. Dr. Silverman and Dr. Boyd will ensure that a safe, realistic, and predictable surgical plan is crafted to ensure a worry-free recovery and outcome.
The length and scope of your mommy makeover will differ based on the procedures you’ve chosen, and your surgeon will walk you through what to expect from your specific surgery during consultation and subsequent preoperative appointments.
What’s the First Step?
The first step to getting a mommy makeover in Ottawa with our esteemed plastic surgeons is to schedule a consultation. During your appointment, you’ll be able to discuss your surgical and aesthetic desires with your surgeon. After understanding your goals, the surgeon will provide a thorough assessment of the treatment area, provide their expert recommendations, and discuss the pricing.
If you’re happy with our insight, surgery will be booked and we’ll provide you with pre and postoperative instructions. Because we’ll be combining multiple procedures, it’s vital that you pay close attention to these instructions, as they are designed to help reduce risk and complications.
Your surgeon will have some specific questions about your health, diet, past surgeries, and any medications you are currently taking. Please be as upfront and honest with your answers, as well as your goals. Remember, great communication leads to optimal results for your mommy makeover.
It is also important that you have recovered fully from your pregnancy. This means that you should be close to your goal weight, and that you have stooped breastfeeding for about 4-6 months. Typically, a mommy makeover can be done after a minimum of 6 months after pregnancy, once your weight and body changes have stabilized.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
After surgery, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home and stay with you for a couple of days as you begin to recover. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast procedures typically require you to wear special compression undergarments to support your body after surgery.
Although different procedures require different post-surgical restrictions, you can expect to avoid heavy lifting and most activity for 4-6 weeks. You may manage your discomfort with prescribed medications or over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol or anti-inflammatories. We encourage resuming light activity, such as brief walks, as soon as possible to promote blood flow and speed your recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How long after giving birth do I need to wait before surgery?
We recommend that you wait at least 6 months before having elective surgery. For mothers who currently breastfeed, we suggest deferring surgery until you’ve finished breastfeeding.
- How long will my results last?
Depending on the procedures performed, the surgery can last a lifetime. While breast augmentation surgery won’t last forever, you will be able to enjoy your new breasts for 10+ years. Other surgeries like a tummy tuck or liposuction are permanent, and you’ll be able to enjoy the results forever as long as you practice a healthy lifestyle. Your new flatter midsection, larger or perkier breasts, and beautiful new contours can help you achieve greater confidence that touches every aspect of your life.
