Mommy Makeover

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Congratulations on being a mommy! Being a mother or father is one of the most rewarding experiences in life and cannot be replaced by anything.

Unfortunately, the process by which these joyous little creatures come into our lives is not without sacrifice, particularly with regards to the effects on the mother’s body. During pregnancy and the breast feeding time period, the breasts change size rapidly and stretch the skin, only to decrease in size and lose volume following the cessation of breast feeding. This takes a toll on the appearance of the breasts, leaving many women with a flattened, stretched out appearance to their breasts that does not resemble the youthful contour that they remember from the pre-pregnancy period.

Changes in abdominal contour also occur as a result of pregnancy. Enlargement of the uterus during pregnancy stretches the muscles of the abdominal wall, and weight gain during pregnancy stretches the skin. Fat distribution can be less than ideal. After these stresses to the abdominal wall have occurred, a woman can be left with a “pooch” that will not respond to diet and exercise.

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures that will address the changes that have taken place in a woman’s body as a result of previous pregnancy. Although the changes that occur following pregnancy are natural and expected consequences of pregnancy, it often leaves a mother unhappy with the appearance of her body. Techniques used to address these concerns may include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift with or without implant placement, liposuction, thigh lift or buttocks reshaping. Your individual anatomy and goals with surgery will dictate what procedures we will need to include to address your concerns and give you back the body you desire.
