Body Shaping: Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive set of cosmetic procedures designed to address the physical changes that occur in a woman’s body following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. This transformative combination of surgeries aims to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure, boost confidence, and rejuvenate her overall appearance.

If you’re ready to reclaim your confidence and restore your pre-pregnancy figure, a Mommy Makeover may be the solution you’ve been seeking. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Sara R. Dickie to discuss your goals, concerns, and personalized treatment plan. With her expertise and compassionate care, you can achieve the beautiful, rejuvenated appearance you deserve.

The Basics

Breast Enhancement: Pregnancy and breastfeeding often result in changes to the breasts, including loss of volume, sagging, and changes in shape. Breast enhancement procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination of both can restore fullness, lift, and symmetry to the breasts, helping to achieve a more youthful and proportionate appearance.

Abdominal Contouring: Pregnancy can stretch the abdominal muscles and skin, leading to excess skin, stretch marks, and a persistent pooch that may not respond to diet and exercise alone. Abdominal contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can tighten the abdominal muscles, remove excess skin and fat, and sculpt a firmer, flatter abdomen.

Body Contouring: In addition to addressing the abdomen, Mommy Makeovers may also include body contouring procedures such as liposuction to target stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the hips, thighs, or buttocks. This helps to enhance overall body contours and achieve a more sculpted silhouette.

Who is a good candidate?

Ideal candidates for Mommy Makeovers are women who have completed their pregnancies, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedures. Common characteristics of good candidates include:

  • Stable Weight: Candidates should be at or near their ideal weight and have maintained a stable weight for several months before undergoing surgery.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Adopting a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can optimize surgical outcomes and promote long-term results.
  • Completed Childbearing: While it’s possible to undergo a Mommy Makeover before having all desired children, candidates should understand that future pregnancies may affect the results of the procedures.
