Many women in Tampa choose to have a combination of cosmetic procedures performed during one surgical session, commonly referred to as a mommy makeover, once they’re done having children. A mommy makeover can restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape and boost your self-confidence.
Benefits of Mommy Makeover
While a mommy makeover is most often performed on women who have had one or more pregnancies, it can also be beneficial for women who have lost a significant amount of weight or who merely want to correct signs of aging on their body.
Some of the most notable benefits of this combination procedure are:
1.It Saves Time and Money
When you choose to have a mommy makeover at Moraitis Plastic Surgery in Tampa, you will save both time and money.

Procedures that Can Be Included in a Mommy Makeover
When patients hear the term “mommy makeover,” they often wonder what type of procedures they can include during this procedure. The following are the most common types of procedures performed by Dr. Moraitis during a mommy makeover, as the breasts and abdomen are the most affected by pregnancy:
- A breast augmentation to increase the size of the breasts in a natural-looking way.
- A breast lift to improve sagging breasts and raise them to a more youthful position.
- A breast reduction to reduce the size of breasts that are so large they cause daily pain in the back, neck, or head.
- Liposuction to further improve the contour of the targeted areas.
- Tummy tuck to improve the tone and shape of the abdomen by removing lax skin and excess fat, and by tightening separated abdominal muscles.
While the above procedures are most common during a mommy makeover, some Tampa women choose to include other surgical and non-surgical procedures as well, such as:
Is Mommy Makeover Right for You?
In order to find out if the mommy makeover procedure is right for you, the best thing you can do is make an appointment to see Dr. Moraitis himself. During this initial visit, you will have the chance to tell Dr. Moraitis about the areas of your body you would like to address and the changes you would like to see. He will then help you understand how you may benefit from a mommy makeover or give you recommendations for other procedures if he believes the mommy makeover isn’t the right choice for you.
What Is the Recovery From Mommy Makeover Like?
The recovery time from the mommy makeover surgery varies from person to person and depends on the type and number of procedures performed. However, most Tampa women will see their final results and be able to fully engage in their normal daily activities after about 6 weeks post-op.
Mommy makeover patients should expect some swelling and tightness with both tummy tuck and breast-related procedures. Be sure to keep your post-op appointments with Dr. Moraitis during your recovery so he can remove sutures and drains if necessary, and ensure you are healing well.
In order to minimize the appearance of scarring, Dr. Moraitis recommends using a scar maintenance regime involving massage and topical ointment. However, some women may find they benefit most from laser treatment if their scars remain prominent after a few months.
Pricing for Mommy Makeover
Because the mommy makeover procedure is so individualized, it’s cost can vary greatly from one woman to another. This is evident in the national average cost of a mommy makeover provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website, which states that the final cost can range from $9,000 to $20,000.
Factors that affect the final cost of your mommy makeover will depend on:
- Moraitis’ fees as related to your combination of procedures
- Hospital or surgical facility fees
- Surgery related expenses such as anesthesia fees, post-surgery fees, and cost of implants if applicable
