A mommy makeover is a customizable package of procedures designed to return your body to its pre-pregnancy state. Childbirth, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can lead to loose abdominal skin and loss of breast volume, neither of which always respond to changes in diet and exercise.

A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to help you get the body you want after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. These wonderful times of your life can leave your abdomen loose, your breasts smaller or with less volume, and perhaps with stubborn fat on your hips.

The mommy makeover is an excellent surgical solution to dissatisfaction with your body after pregnancy, childbirth, and/or breastfeeding. It is actually a combination of procedures designed to let you customize your treatment to meet your specific needs. The most common elements of a mommy makeover are a tummy tuck (or mini tummy tuck), breast augmentation or lift, or liposuction of the hips.
The patient can pick which procedures will give her the body she wants after having children. Having babies and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to lose volume, can loosen the skin and muscles of the abdomen, and cause the hips to widen. These changes don’t always respond to diet and exercise, which can be frustrating! Your surgeon will work with you to select the combination of procedures that will help do what diet and exercise cannot.
Mother’s Day is this weekend, and what better what is there to spend it then by giving yourself the gift of a trim, full, firm figure?

The mommy makeover lets you pick what procedures would help you look your best, with the help of a qualified plastic surgeon.

Becoming a mother changes your whole life- including your body! Women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth can develop loose, sagging skin in their abdomen, as well as breasts that have lost volume (especially after breastfeeding).
Exercise and diet can do a little to return the abdomen to its pre-pregnancy state, but no amount of lifestyle changes can reverse loosened skin or change the volume or position of the breasts. If you are unhappy with your post-pregnancy body and want to go back to how you looked pre-baby, you need a “mommy makeover.”
