Mommy Makeover Can Correct:

Breast Sagging

Many different breast concerns can arise after pregnancy, including sagging or loose skin, lost volume, asymmetry, stretch marks, and stretched or enlarged nipples. Each Mommy Makeover is fully customized and can include various breast procedures to achieve your specific aesthetic desires.

Stretched Abdominal Muscles

The skin and muscles of the abdomen can be compromised after carrying a baby, resulting in stretched skin, muscle laxity, and excess fat in the stomach region. A Mommy Makeover can include techniques to tighten the skin and muscles for an enhanced, chiseled stomach appearance.

Lack Of Confidence

After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts may appear deflated and the stomach region may have excess fat and loose skin. Diet and exercise are not able to address these concerns, which can lower self-confidence. By enhancing the breasts and improving the stomach, your self-esteem can be restored.

Mommy Makeover Options

A Mommy Makeover is customized based on the needs of the patient, but it is generally one of the following combinations:

  • Tummy tuck + breast augmentation
  • Tummy tuck + breast lift
  • Tummy tuck + augmentation mastopexy (breast lift with implants)
  • Tummy tuck + breast reduction

Explore the options below to see which procedure combination might be right for you.

*Model

Enhanced Breasts And Cleavage

Patients seeking to add volume to their bust can undergo breast augmentation to increase the size and improve the shape, texture, and symmetry of their breasts. A breast lift is designed to reposition the breasts to a higher position on the chest, which can be completed either as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with a breast augmentation depending on the needs of each patient. Concerns with nipple size and placement can also be addressed during a Mommy Makeover.

Reduced Breast Size

In some cases, the breasts retain excess fatty tissue, which can weigh down the chest and become uncomfortable. Patients who feel their breasts are disproportionately large for their body can opt for a breast reduction to reshape and resize the breasts. This procedure can also include a breast lift to place the breasts in a higher position on the chest.

Tighter, Smoother Abs

The tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin from the stomach area and tightens the muscles for a more defined contour. Stretched muscles are sutured together, fat is excised, skin is pulled taut, and extra skin is removed. This results in a smoother, tighter torso.

Concerns

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Patients who identify with some of the concerns addressed by a Mommy Makeover can benefit from this procedure. It is best to finish having children before undergoing a Mommy Makeover, as childbearing can undo the results of the surgery. It is recommended that all patients wait until after they have stopped breastfeeding and their bodies have fully recovered from pregnancy to undergo a Mommy Makeover.

  • Mommy Makeovers are designed to simultaneously perform multiple procedures to provide a transformation to rejuvenate the body. With only one surgery, the cost is reduced because the surgical fees are only needed for one operation. The recovery time is also reduced and only needs to occur once.

  • Pockets of excess fat can be removed using liposuction as an add-on procedure to a Mommy Makeover. Tiny incisions are made in the desired locations, and a thin suctioning device (cannula) is inserted to gently remove fat cells. The most common areas addressed by liposuction include the arms, thighs, stomach, flanks, and hips.

  • Results from a Mommy Makeover are meant to be long lasting, especially if there are no weight fluctuations or additional pregnancies. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help prolong your results.

  • Any patient with multiple areas of concern that can be addressed by a Mommy Makeover may benefit from this procedure.
