Mommy Makeover

Mommy MakeoverPregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding can create different problems for each woman, and so the “Mommy Makeover” will be unique for each patient. Often, the core of the makeover involves a breast lift and or augmentation, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty and liposuction to refine both the breast and abdominal area.

Why you want a Mommy Makeover

You need some help to get back in shape. Let's face it: child bearing is probably the most difficult thing that any woman's body will have to go through. Your body balloons in weight, and your skin expands to cover the extra girth–a girth that after the baby arrives is just no longer there. Breast feeding a child can cause your breasts to inflate and then deflate, often leaving them flat or out of shape.

Whatever your issues, a Mommy Makeover can leave you feeling restored, refreshed and looking your best. Liposuction can get rid of those last pockets of fat that were easy to add and impossible to make go away. A tummy tuck will remove all of the extra skin on the front of your abdomen, and leave you a smooth, lean exterior to match your reduced body mass. And a breast lift or augmentation will restore your breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape. There are other procedures such as a thigh lift or upper arm lift that can be performed in concert with the core procedures when necessary.
