Mommy Makeover


A Mommy Makeover is a wonderful option for restoring your body after pregnancy, to the way that it once was. Pregnancy, childbirth, weight gain and significant weight loss all can cause many physical changes to your body. The first step in your Mommy Makeover surgery is knowing what you want to change. Typically, a Mommy Makeover, which is a combination of several procedures, such as a breast surgery and abdominal contouring can help to achieve the desired results.

Mommy Makeover – Combining Procedures

If you’re like many mom patients, you are probably interested in improving more than one area of your body. By combining multiple procedures like breast augmentation and a tummy tuck in one operation, you can get the results you want with only one recovery period. It also saves you money since you pay only once for anesthesia, medications, and facility fees.

Breast Rejuvenation

A breast rejuvenation procedure such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a breast reduction, will bring your breasts back to the life they once had. Many women like the enlarged breasts that come with pregnancy and breastfeeding, however, once they no longer produce milk, the breast may decrease and can also deflate. Combining a breast lift and augmentation will allow your breasts to look rejuvenated and full once again.

Many mothers just like you have made the choice to get back their beautiful, perky pre-baby breasts. It’s easier than ever – and can help you look better than ever

Abdominal Contouring

Abdominal contouring can be done through either Liposuction, Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) or a combination of the two. As a result of childbirth or significant weight loss, fat distribution is no longer harmonious, stretch marks can occur, as well as excessive loose skin that is not responding to diet and exercise. Additionally, the fascia (a thin sheath of tissue that encloses a muscle or other organ) overlying the abdominal muscle begins to separate which leads to something called, a rectus diastasis (large separation of the abdominal muscles) and can only be repaired via surgery.


Some patients may choose to undergo a circumferential abdominoplasty (body lift) which has the added benefit of lifting the lateral thighs and buttock at the same time.
