A Mommy Makeover is the popular name for a combination of cosmetic surgeries that may change your post-pregnancy body back to its pre-pregnancy state. Once you are done childbearing, your abdomen, breasts and skin may be stretched and flabby. You may also have pockets of fat that refuse to budge after months of diet and exercise. These and other issues can be corrected with a Mommy Makeover.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. That’s because each procedure is customized based on the patient’s wants and needs. With that being said, many Mommy Makeovers tend to include:
Tummy Tuck – The shape and size of your abdomen changes during pregnancy. Even after just one pregnancy, it can be difficult to achieve a flat abdomen. A tummy tuck can help with this. During this procedure, our surgeon can tighten muscles and remove excess fat and skin. The remaining skin can also be tightened.
Breast Enhancement – You may have once had breasts of a certain size and shape, but pregnancy and breastfeeding changed all of that. There are two very popular possibilities for breast enhancement, including a breast lift and breast augmentation. Sometimes, both may be used in order to provide the best benefits.
Liposuction – Along with a tummy tuck, liposuction may be used, especially if you have other areas with excess fat. During this procedure, fat is skillfully removed using specialized processes.
