Pregnancy and breast feeding can cause dramatic changes to a woman’s body, and some find that they may need a little extra assistance to help them get back to their pre-pregnancy appearance. A Mommy Makeover is a plastic surgery procedure designed to address these changes with a combination of breast and body contouring techniques, which may include:
- Tummy Tuck (or abdominoplasty) to retighten stretched abdominal muscles and remove the lower belly “pooch”
- Breast Lift (or mastopexy) to restore sagging breasts to a more lifted and youthful position
- Liposuction to remove isolated pockets of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise and create a more smoothly sculpted appearance
Because every woman is unique, and each woman’s body responds to pregnancy differently, additional procedures, like breast reduction or augmentation, spider vein treatment, arm lifts, or thigh lifts, can also be included, as necessary, to address individual areas of concern. Having these procedures completed during a single surgical session means that patients ultimately require less post-surgery recovery time and get back to their lives faster.
