Mommy Makeover

After the birth of their children, many women experience weight gain, lost breast volume, and noticeable sagging. Mommy makeovers, typically a combination of breast surgery, tummy tuck, and sometimes liposuction are used to get the body back into pre-baby shape.

During  pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues stretch to safely accommodate the growing baby. After childbirth, despite dieting and exercising, these layers can fail to bounce back. Similarly, lactation and breast feeding swell and stretch breast tissues. Once lactation comes to an end, breasts tissues can become distended, and sag.

Each mommy makeover procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique needs. Most mommy makeovers include a breast and abdomen contouring procedure, then adding additional elements as needed. They may comprise of one or more of these surgical procedures:

Breast implants can restore fullness and lost volume, while a breast lift helps to enhance drooping breasts. Breast surgery may also improve size and position of the nipples. A tummy tuck tightens the muscles that were stretched during the pregnancy, and liposuction can reshape abdomen, hips, butt, and legs.

A mommy makeover may be right for you if you:

  • Are healthy and have a stable weight
  • Are dissatisfied with post-pregnancy changes to your body
  • Have realistic goals and expectations
  • Are not planning on having additional children

A mommy makeover can restore youthfulness, reduce excess fat, and enhance breast volume and perkiness. With this often comes improved self-confidence and physical and emotional wellness. Mommy makeovers can be performed during one single visit, or spread out over multiple surgical sessions. The final results of your mommy makeover become gradually apparent over several weeks and months after surgery.
