What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The combination of procedures included in a mommy makeover typically focuses on the tummy and the breasts. Lax abdominal skin, a tummy bulge, sagging breasts, and pockets of stubborn fat are all physical changes that no amount of exercising or dieting can improve. During your consultation, Dr. Andrew Rosenthal or Dr. Michael Plastini will describe your options after listening to you talk about your concerns and aesthetic goals.
Usually, a mommy makeover includes a breast enhancement procedure, a tummy tuck, and often liposuction. Options include:
Tummy tuck—Also called abdominoplasty, tummy tuck surgery creates a firmer, flatter stomach by removing excess skin and tightening and repairing abdominal muscles stretched during pregnancy (a condition called diastasis recti).
Liposuction—Removing excess fat helps ensure that your midsection appears smooth and contoured.
Breast augmentation—If you’re self-conscious about having small breasts, augmentation with breast implants restores a fuller appearance.
Breast lift—A breast lift removes excess skin and lifts and reshapes sagging breasts so they appear more youthful.
Breast lift with implants—It’s quite common that moms who want breast augmentation also need a breast lift because the breast skin has lost its elasticity.
Breast reduction— Lifting and reducing large, heavy breasts can make women feel more confident and make exercising more comfortable
Labiaplasty—This surgical procedure can address concerns you may have about the appearance of your labia after having children.
