Mommy Makeover in Hamburg
Being a mother is the most beautiful and natural thing in the world. But pregnancies and breastfeeding periods also take their toll, especially with large babies, multiple pregnancies and multiple pregnancies in quick succession. Changes after pregnancy are completely natural, but can also lead to dissatisfaction with one’s own body.
Within the framework of a so-called “mommy makeover” it is possible to restore this lost satisfaction. Certain procedures on different parts of the body can be considered for this purpose. Find out more about a mommy makeover in Hamburg here!
What are the Reasons for a Mommy Makeover?
Due to mechanical stress, weight fluctuations, but also due to hormonal changes, the breasts often appear “empty” after pregnancy or breastfeeding. In addition, excess skin, stretch marks and unruly fat pads remain on the body. The abdominal muscles may also separate, the vagina may be overstretched, or the labia may be enlarged and pigmented.
These pregnancy effects are usually not reversible by dieting and exercise alone. However, there are plastic surgery treatments that can help you regain a slim body, full breasts and a youthful intimate area. In this way, the usual body feeling can also be restored. A mommy makeover addresses several problem areas that have been particularly affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding in just one procedure.
Dr. med. Thorsten Sattler, a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery, tailors the combination of procedures required in each case to your specific needs. Because just as not every pregnancy is the same, physical changes can vary from patient to patient.
Well advised and in the best hands
After childbirth, the woman’s body inevitably changes. If you are no longer satisfied and want a pre-baby aesthetic again, a mommy makeover may be the right choice.

1. What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of various aesthetic plastic procedures that address different problem areas after pregnancy. When multiple surgeries are bundled into just one procedure, it has many advantages. This way you only need one general anesthetic. Also, with a one-time operation, you will accordingly only fall out once, which plays a major role for many mothers, especially when their children are still small. But a shortened downtime is also a great advantage for mothers who want to get back to work after pregnancy. Most importantly, you can enjoy a great overall result after your mommy makeover.
The mommy makeover usually consists of two or three procedures, which can often be performed within a single surgery. Thus, this method of treatment can save both time and money. Therefore, it is no wonder that many of our patients now prefer to opt for a combination of different aesthetic plastic surgeries. When many procedures are bundled into just one surgery, it is also referred to as a “total mommy makeover.”
The combination of procedures depends on each patient’s individual desired outcome, so the composition of each surgery may vary. The goal of a mommy makeover is to get your body back in shape after pregnancy and give you back your confidence. To this purpose, Dr. Sattler will consult you in detail in order to discuss your goals, wishes and expectations in detail
Frequently chosen Operations within the Context of Mommy Makeover
a. Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
A beautiful full breast belongs to the ideal of beauty for many women. A well-formed female breast not only looks good, but also boosts self-confidence and represents youthfulness. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can adversely affect the appearance of your breasts. Often the breasts appear “empty” and lose volume, especially in the upper area towards the décolleté. Every year, therefore, more than two million women worldwide decide to have breast augmentation. This can be done with breast implants or with autologous fat transfer. A combination of both methods is also possible.
Due to weight fluctuations, pregnancies and breastfeeding, the skin, connective tissue and mammary gland tissue are stretched and often cannot fully retract due to the loss of elasticity. Erschlaffte Brüste beeinträchtigen viele Frauen erheblich, da modische Kleidung mit tiefem Ausschnitt oder BHs und Bikinis ohne Push-up nicht getragen werden können. Even in the sauna or in the shower at the fitness center, sagging breasts can lead to the negative impact on self-esteem. In these cases, a breast lift can be used to remove excess skin from the breasts and reshape the remaining mammary gland tissue.
A combination of breast lift and breast augmentation is also possible and is then called “augmentation mastopexy”.

Pregnancy stretches the skin and abdominal muscles, which often cannot fully retract due to loss of elasticity. In this case, excess skin and fat can be removed with an abdominoplasty. An existing caesarean section scar can be removed directly in the course of the abdominoplasty. If the abdominal muscles have moved apart in the midline, e.g. as part of a twin birth, the abdominal muscles are also tightened and fixed back in the midline. This procedure is called “rectus diastasis” – it is used to stabilize the trunk. In the course of abdominoplasty, not only the front parts of the abdomen are tightened, but also the lateral flanks, so that the waist is additionally modeled.
The result of a tummy tuck is a beautiful, flat stomach without wrinkles or dents.
In addition to the abdomen, other areas of the body can be tightened, such as the thighs and upper arms.
Lifting operations can be combined very well with liposuction. This allows precise contouring and shaping of the body silhouette. You will learn more about this in the next section.

c. Liposuction and Autologous Fat Transfer
Sometimes fat deposits are very stubborn, despite regular exercise and a balanced diet. If unwanted fat deposits remain in individual areas of the body after pregnancy, liposuction is an excellent way to achieve your desired figure.
By means of liposuction, excess fat can be removed very specifically and safely, e.g. on the abdomen, waist, thighs and riding breeches. The liposuctioned fat can then be used for an autologous fat transfer, e.g. to the breasts or buttocks. In this way, the female contours can be brought out even better.

d. Intimate Surgery
Especially the reduction of the labia minora is very popular nowadays after pregnancy, because the labia minora can be enlarged and darkly pigmented after childbirth. Even after several births, intimate surgery can be used to give the female genitalia a youthful and appealing appearance.
Any existing caesarean section scars or scars after episiotomy can also be corrected. If the labia minora have suffered a loss of volume, they can be revitalized with an autologous fat transfer.

e. Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
Weight fluctuations and hormonal changes during pregnancy often also stretch the skin and connective tissue on the buttocks. These often can no longer fully retract due to the loss of elasticity. Sagging skin on the buttocks significantly affects many women, as fashionable short skirts, dresses or leggings and narrow pants can no longer be worn. In these cases, autologous fat transfer to the buttocks can be performed to achieve the desired tightening effect and give the buttocks a feminine rounded appearance. This procedure is called a “Brazilian Butt Lift“. Liposuction to extract fat for autologous fat transfer can be performed on riding breeches, thighs, waist or abdomen, for example, to optimize these areas of the body as well.

Minor liposuction and intimate surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis, usually even under local anesthesia. Breast operations, autologous fat transfers and lifting surgery are usually performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the extent of the operations, as an outpatient procedure or with a one-night hospital stay. An abdominoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and a hospital stay of at least one night must be expected. The specific post treatment planning depends on the choice of surgical procedures and may vary from patient to patient.
Dr. Sattler will inform you during your initial consultation how to best prepare for your procedure and a personalized treatment plan will be created. This will help you feel safe and comfortable before and after your surgery. Also, this way a very nice result can be realized with a fast recovery period.
5. Mommy Makeover Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The combination of procedures depends on the individual desired result of each patient. Therefore, the composition of each operation may vary from person to person. For many mothers, the sagging abdominal wall, “empty” breasts and excess fat deposits on the body are initially in the foreground. Therefore, a abdominoplasty, breast lift and liposuction are at the top of the wish list for these patients. In the course of time, changes in the genital area, buttocks and breeches may disturb the patient and are addressed surgically.
In principle, almost all operations can be combined with each other. However, the operation time should not exceed six hours and critical blood loss must be avoided. For example, a tummy tuck and liposuction can be combined well, or a breast procedure with liposuction, especially if an autologous fat transfer is to be performed. The goal of a mommy makeover is to get your body back in shape after pregnancy and give you back your confidence.
Brusteingriffe sollten grundsätzlich erst dann erfolgen, wenn Sie abgestillt haben. It is also important to remember that pregnancy and childbirth are exhausting for your body. They should first recover and regenerate before major interventions are planned.
A mommy makeover does not affect the occurrence of another pregnancy. However, wound healing should be complete before you plan any further pregnancies. The results achieved by a abdominoplasty or breast lift can be compromised by another pregnancy. Especially with large babies and multiple pregnancies, the skin can be overstretched again. Weight fluctuations and hormonal changes can also have negative effects on body contour, but in principle, another pregnancy is possible after a mommy makeover.
It is impossible to give a generalized cost of a mommy makeover because the makeover is made up of different procedures. Depending on the chosen procedure as well as the number of procedures, the price varies. Also, individual procedures do not always cost the same, as each patient is unique. Of course, Dr. Sattler will discuss the cost of your mommy makeover with you in detail in advance.
