Mommy Makeover – Miami Abdominoplasty Post-Pregnancy

Posted July 11, 2014 in Plastic Surgery

When a patient receives an abdominoplasty after pregnancy, it’s called a Mommy Makeover. This procedure is designed to help a woman’s abdominal area look the way it did before pregnancy.

What happens to the abdomen during pregnancy? As a child grows in a woman’s uterus, the uterus expands. This has the unfortunate side effect of pushing against the abdominal muscles, causing a stretching and separation of the abdominal wall. The stretched muscles hang, which creates the look of belly flab.

A Mommy Makeover can tighten the ab muscles and give you a firm abdominal wall once again.

To find out more about the Mommy Makeover procedure, contact the office of Dr. Daniel Careaga. An experienced medical professional, Dr. Careaga will be happy to tell you more about the operation. Call or email today to make an appointment.
