Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that many women consult about with a plastic surgeon post-pregnancy. Pregnancy and childbirth, as well as breastfeeding, can take its toll on a woman's body. A skillfully executed mommy makeover can address many issues women have with their post pregnancy body, particularly those issues affecting the abdomen and breasts. A tummy tuck and breast surgery (such as a lift, augmentation or combination lift/augmentation with saline or silicone implants) are often conducted as part of the mommy makeover. Stubborn fat deposits can also be removed by surgeons using liposuction during the lift and tuck procedures.

Breast Surgery Options
Dissatisfaction with the size and shape of the breasts after childbearing is a common complaint of many mothers. Mommy makeovers often include one or more surgical procedures to the breast, including mastopexy (breast lift) and breast augmentation or breast reduction. Post pregnancy sagging, or ptosis, can be effectively addressed with a breast lift. Breast sag is one of the most common complaints heard by cosmetic surgeons, and can be successfully treated with mastopexy surgery, with or without the use of implants, as many plastic surgeons use a patient’s own tissue to restore lost volume in the breasts.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The extreme stretching of the skin and muscles of the abdomen during pregnancy can create a loose, bulging, and soft belly when compared with a woman's pre-pregnancy shape. As part of a mommy makeover, tummy tuck surgery, referred to by cosmetic surgeons as abdominoplasty, is executed to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying abdominal muscles, which results in a more shapely, firmer and flatter abdomen.
