Mommy Makeover

Building respect and trust with you is our first priority

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

Mommy Makeovers are chiefly meant to address the effects of pregnancy that cannot be reversed through diet and exercise.

It usually involves the plastic surgery trifecta: a breast lift with or without breast implants, a tummy tuck and liposuction. Some women also request a buttock lift as part of their mommy makeover.

During pregnancy the breasts are stretched resulting in significant sagging.

Breasts tissue often atrophies, leaving the breasts deflated. The abdominal skin and muscles are stretched, leaving stretch marks and permanent skin excess.

Fat deposits in the stomach, love handles and hips can remain even after weight from pregnancy has been lost.

Anyone who has experience these physical changes is a candidate for a Mommy Makeover. It can restore your self-confidence by restoring and improving your post-pregnancy body!

Many of our patients realize that how you feel as a mom can be partially related to the contentment of your family.

It is okay to take care of yourself and to want to feel young and self-confident. Having a positive self image not only benefits you as a mom, but it can also positively benefit your relationships and interactions with your husband, children, and other family members.

Breast Lift and Augmentation Options

Options to rejuvenate post-pregnancy breasts include breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination. Procedure surgical time ranges from 1-1/2 hours to approximately 3 hours.

Liposuction Options

Liposuction can be effective in spot removal of fat from the abdomen, thighs, and love handles. This surgical procedure involves small cannulas or tubes which are passed through the fat layer and an attached suction device is used to remove the fat. Very small incisions, measuring about 3/8 of an inch, prevent excessive scarring. Most patients return to basic home and work activities in about five days.

Tummy Tuck Options

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes the excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The procedure also helps to flatten the abdomen by tightening the surrounding muscles. In addition to the tummy tuck, liposuction is often performed to remove excess fat at the love handles and pubic area.

Lower Body Lift & Buttock Lift Options

An outer thigh and buttock lift is an option for patients with excess and saggy skin along the outer thighs and upper buttocks. The patients who have lost marked amount of weight are often candidates for this procedure.

Recovery time varies by individual. It’s imperative to give your body ample time to heal.
