Mommy Makeover


A Mommy makeover is a procedure or combination of procedures intended to restore the appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy. Many women notice changes in their bodies after pregnancy and nursing as a result of fluctuations in body size leading to stretching of soft tissue and skin as well as the inability to get rid of unwanted fat deposits. The areas of a woman’s body that may be affected after childbearing include the abdomen, waist, breasts, buttocks, and genitalia.

A Mommy makeover procedure is usually performed as a single-stage procedure and would consist of one specific procedure or a combination of procedures that should be discussed at the time of your consultation. A typical mommy makeover procedure would be a single-stage procedure combining a tummy tuck with a breast lift with or without implants since the most visible areas to a woman are her breasts and abdomen. The goal of getting back her pre-baby body would be perkier fuller breasts and a flatter, smoother and firmer abdomen.

Even though the recovery would be longer, combination procedures in a mommy makeover avoid another procedure, another general anesthesia, and more cost-effective in the long run.
