Oftentimes, having a baby can cause your body to undergo some unwanted changes, and since these changes fluctuate from person to person, knowing the right options for you may be tough. The good news is, you can feel confident and sexy in your body again with a Mommy Makeover—customized to fit your desired results!

Is a Mommy Makeover right for me? Here are some questions to consider:

  • Are you back to your normal routine, eating healthy and regularly exercising?
  • Despite your healthy lifestyle, are you still unhappy with your post-baby body?
  • Have you had multiple pregnancies?
  • Have you completed your childbearing years?
  • Are you within range of your normal weight?
  • Do you experience sagging, excess fat and other bodily concerns that you are unhappy with due to former pregnancies and childbearing?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, now may be the time to look at how a Mommy Makeover can boost your confidence and help you feel like your younger, vibrant self.

Generally, there are 3 areas of focus concerning a Mommy Makeover.  You can pick and choose which procedures are right for you, depending on your specific goals and desires.  These include:

  1. Breast Surgery:  Pregnancy, as well as breastfeeding, can change the breasts dramatically, which may result in sagging and loss of volume. For sagging breasts that have lost their youthful appearance, a breast lift may be the right procedure for you.  A breast lift repositions and restores shape to your breasts without adding volume.  A common Mommy Makeover often includes both a breast lift and breast augmentation, which adds volume and symmetry to breasts.  Some mothers may also choose breast reduction surgery if their breasts become too enlarged or asymmetrical.
  2. Tummy Tuck: Childbirth and pregnancy can cause stretch marks and excess fat/skin in the abdominal region. A tummy tuck flattens the stomach, eliminates stretch marks and tightens the skin of the abdomen so that your stomach area can look like it did before you became pregnant.
  3. Liposuction: It is common for women who have recently had a baby to carry excess fat in their abdomen, thighs, back and buttocks. Liposuction can eliminate this excess fat effectively through the insertion of a cannula that suctions out and removes liquefied fat.  A popular Mommy Makeover that many women choose to combine is a tummy tuck with liposuction to restore their former slim and youthful figures.

Depending on your goals and desires, Mommy Makeover procedures can sometimes be done together, during one operation.  Of course, many factors influence this decision including your overall health and post-operative plan.
