Customized Mommy Makeover Procedures
A mommy makeover performed by our plastic surgeons is customized to suit each woman’s unique condition and goals. Read on to learn more about some of the procedures most frequently performed as part of a mommy makeover.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
A very common and especially troublesome side effect of pregnancy is a condition called diastasis recti, where the midline abdominal muscles separate. This, combined with stretched skin and stubborn fat pockets on the abdomen, can be corrected with abdominoplasty. During a tummy tuck, excess skin and fat are removed and separated abdominal muscles are reconnected, resulting in an abdomen that is flatter, firmer, and more shapely.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to fluctuate in size, frequently resulting in a pronounced loss of volume. Breast augmentation using silicone or saline implants can endow women with a fuller, perkier bust.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Frequently combined with breast augmentation, a breast lift can combat the effects of breastfeeding by repositioning the breasts so they sit higher on the chest. This results in a more voluptuous, youthful appearance.
Even if busy mothers can find the time to eat well and exercise, there are certain areas of the body where stubborn fat just seems to persist after pregnancy. Our plastic surgeons can employ liposuction to eliminate excess fat on the abdomen, bra line, buttocks, hips, thighs, and other areas of the body.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift makes it possible for women to achieve a more lifted, shapely, and full derriere—with the added benefit of eliminating excess body fat. During this procedure, liposuction is used to remove fat from the abdomen or another part of the body. This fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks or hips, resulting in a natural-looking enhancement.
