Plastic surgery — while often performed for aesthetic reasons—can have a profound effect on patients and their well-being. The results of a mommy makeover, for example, can make exercise easier, boost a woman’s confidence after having children, and repair damage done to the body during pregnancy and giving birth. However, when a mommy makeover goes wrong, even in relatively minor ways, it has lasting negative effects. While rare, revision mommy makeover surgeries do occur. Dr. Javad Sajan of Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery provides the best revision mommy makeover Seattle offers.

Why Do Mommy Makeover Revisions Happen?

Mommy makeover revision surgeries happen for many reasons. Firstly, it is important to understand that the initial surgery is complex and highly customized. Therefore, each mommy makeover surgery will look slightly different from another, even if performed by the same surgeon. This leads to high amounts of variation in results too. While usually, this does not equate to patient dissatisfaction, it does mean choosing the surgeon whose techniques, previous results, and vision align with your own is important for getting the initial mommy makeover results desired.

Some reasons that patients undergo mommy makeover revisions in Seattle include:

  • Unexpected pregnancy occurs sometime after surgery and compromises the original results
  • Significant weight gain post-surgery affects the final results
  • Poor scar healing and/or the development of keloid or hypertrophic scars
  • Failure of diastasis recti repair
  • Capsular contracture
  • Original procedure was too conservative and/or did not address all concerns
  • Further weight loss or aging causes more extra skin to form
  • Patient desires to make changes for personal reasons (larger implants, additional liposuction, etc.)
  • Unsatisfactory belly button appearance
  • Surgery was performed when the patient was in the process of losing weight and they had not yet reached a range ideal for a mommy makeover

Revisions to any plastic surgery—especially mommy makeovers—can happen for a variety of reasons that may be uncontrollable. However, patients should know if they are at a higher risk of potentially needing revision surgery and should follow post-operative instructions that help prevent the need for revision.

Also, depending on when a woman undergoes a mommy makeover, the natural course of aging can affect her results over time. This cannot be fully avoided, and patients should have realistic expectations about their mommy makeover results and how they will age.

When To Consider A Revision Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover Revision

In most cases, patients should wait at least one year after their surgery before seeking a revision. One of the few exceptions to this would be if a breast implant exhibits severe signs of capsular contracture or rupture before then. However, most of the time, surgeons will tell patients to wait for residual swelling to go away and for results to settle. This usually takes between one and two years.

After one year, if the visible results are unsatisfactory, scarring shows signs of poor healing, or there are major inconsistencies, a patient may want to consider a mommy makeover revision surgery.

Procedures Common During Revision Mommy Makeovers

Mommy makeover Seattle can involve a combination of several procedures. A mommy makeover revision can also include multiple procedures, but it is more likely to address one portion of the original surgery. Each revision mommy makeover is unique though, and Dr. Sajan will evaluate you and your case holistically to determine the best course of action. Sometimes, he may recommend non-surgical treatments first, especially when treating scars. During a consultation, Dr. Sajan will help you determine the right treatment. Below are some of the more common procedures performed during a mommy makeover revision in Seattle.

Breast Lift

A breast lift surgery removes extra skin from the breasts and restores a perky appearance. Many patients are hesitant to undergo the procedure due to more extensive scarring than breast augmentation. However, sometimes, once implants are added, sagging becomes worse and a breast lift becomes necessary.

Tummy Tuck

While frequently performed during mommy makeover surgery, sometimes a patient may lose additional weight or experience changes that cause more extra skin to appear on their stomach. A tummy tuck can help remove this extra skin and maintain a flatter tummy. Also, sometimes diastasis recti repair was either not performed or failed. This can be repaired through a revisional tummy tuck but does not always require a full tummy tuck.


Liposuction removes excess fat pockets from targeted areas of the body. During a mommy makeover, liposuction can help enhance and smooth the overall body contours. Some surgeons are hesitant to perform liposuction with a tummy tuck and other times additional liposuction becomes necessary due to other factors. Liposuction may also be used to harvest fat to address other aspects of the mommy makeover such as breast volume or scarring.

Breast Implant Exchange

A breast implant exchange is common during mommy makeover surgery. Sometimes the exchange is simply due to patient preference to go bigger or smaller, and not with a complication. Other times, a patient may experience a complication such as capsular contracture and require implant exchange.

Scar Revision

Many factors impact scar healing, some of which are completely out of the patient’s or surgeon’s control. Scar revision—whether through surgery or non-surgical means—is common during a mommy makeover revision.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Should I Wait Before Seeking A Revision For Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Patients should wait at least one year before seeking a mommy makeover surgery unless experiencing symptoms of complications.

Should I Return To My Original Surgeon?

If possible and you want to, yes. Most surgeons will tell patients to return to their original surgeon whenever possible because they will have your records and understand the nuances of your surgery. However, if this is not possible because you moved, the surgeon retired, or you as a patient want a second opinion or lost trust in your surgeon, you may choose to seek out the opinion of other surgeons.

How Many Times Can You Do A Mommy Makeover?

It depends on the patient’s skin quality, age, and health. Technically, there is no limit to the number of times a patient can undergo a mommy makeover but it is rare for an individual patient to undergo more than two full mommy makeovers in their lifetime.

What Does A Revision Mommy Makeover Cost?

Revisional surgeries of all kinds vary widely in their scope, technique, and needs. Therefore, estimating the cost is nearly impossible. However, patients who know what they may be looking for out of a revision can view our price list or Price Simulator to get an idea of what a revision may cost.

Patients will receive a personalized price quote at their consultation appointment based on their particular needs. Allure Esthetic does accept outside financing including Care Credit, United Medical Credit, and Alphaeon.

Does Getting Pregnant Mean I Will Need A Mommy Makeover Revision?

Not necessarily, but it increases the likelihood of a revision significantly. Any pregnancies after a mommy makeover surgery may reverse or damage the results of the procedure.

Will I Need A Full Mommy Makeover Again?

Maybe, but it is common for patients to be overall happy with their results but want to address one area or concern. In these cases, a full mommy makeover surgery is rarely needed. However, sometimes, a patient may require a full mommy makeover again depending on the circumstances. Dr. Sajan can help patients determine the extent of their revision mommy makeover during a consultation.
