Body Shaping: Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive set of cosmetic procedures tailored to address the physical changes experienced by women after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. This transformative combination of surgeries aims to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy physique, boost self-assurance, and rejuvenate overall appearance.

The Basics

Breast Enhancement: Pregnancy and nursing often lead to breast changes like volume loss, sagging, and shape alteration. Breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination of both can restore fullness, lift, and symmetry, creating a more youthful and balanced breast appearance.

Abdominal Contouring: Pregnancy can stretch abdominal muscles and skin, resulting in excess skin, stretch marks, and a persistent abdominal bulge. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) tightens abdominal muscles, removes excess skin and fat, and sculpts a firmer, flatter abdomen.

Body Contouring: Mommy Makeovers may include liposuction to target stubborn fat pockets in areas like the hips, thighs, or buttocks, enhancing overall body contours and achieving a more sculpted silhouette.

Who is a good candidate?

Ideal candidates are women who have completed pregnancies, are in good health, and hold realistic expectations about the outcomes. Good candidates typically:

  • Maintain Stable Weight: Candidates should be close to their desired weight and maintain it for several months before surgery.
  • Embrace Healthy Habits: A healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and balanced nutrition enhances surgical outcomes and supports long-term results.
  • Finished Childbearing: Though possible to undergo a Mommy Makeover before having all desired children, candidates should recognize that future pregnancies may impact results.
