What exactly is a mommy makeover? This term is used to describe one or more procedures available to help restore a woman’s body to her pre-pregnancy appearance.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body is subject to sudden weight gain and rapid stretching of the skin. These changes typically lead to loss of skin elasticity resulting in unflattering stretch marks of the breast and abdomen, decrease in breast size and loss of breast fullness, sagging of the breasts, looseness of the lower abdominal skin, weakness of the abdominal wall and increase in fat pockets in unwanted areas. Despite continuing with a proper diet and regular exercise, many women find that these undesirable changes are permanent without surgery.
Mommy makeover procedures can include any of the following procedures or combination of procedures: breast lift, breast augmentation, breast lift with augmentation, tummy tuck with muscle tightening, mini-tummy tuck and body contouring with liposuction. For the best and longest lasting results, we recommend that patients lose as much of their pregnancy weight as possible and have no plans for future pregnancies.
