Oftentimes, after having children, a woman’s body is significantly changed. The breasts can lengthen and droop and breast volume can be significantly reduced. Additionally, the abdominal skin is frequently stretched and loose, and there is laxity of the abdominal muscle tone. When diet and exercise fail to restore the pre-pregnancy physique, it is time to consider having a “Mommy Makeover”. Not all women require every procedure performed and it is up to the patient and her Plastic Surgeon to decide which combination of surgical procedures are optimal in each case.
REASONS FOR CONSIDERING A "MOMMY MAKEOVER"
- Enhance the shape of drooping breasts and increase breast volume.
- Enhance the abdominal contour and shape.
- Remove excess abdominal skin and tighten abdominal muscle tone.
General Mommy Makeover Procedure
A “Mommy Makeover” combines breast and abdominal surgery to improve a woman’s appearance post-pregnancy. A Breast Augmentation restores volume to the breast and is frequently combined with a Breast Lift to restore the breast into a higher and “perkier” position.
General Tummy Tuck Procedure
Abdominoplasty surgery lasts anywhere from one to five hours, depending on the desired look and the patient’s unique physiology. To begin the procedure, an incision is made just above the pubic bone area. This incision goes horizontally across the lower abdomen and sometimes around to the back.

Sometimes simply dieting and exercising are not enough to take care of waistline problems. In such cases, a patient may wish to consider a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty). A tummy tuck is the surgical removal of excess skin or fatty deposits from the abdomen, along with the repositioning of abdomen muscles into a tighter formation. This bodily enhancement procedure is designed for those who wish to have a flatter and tighter stomach. It is also helpful in remedying the vertical separation of abdomen muscles known as diastasis, which can occur following pregnancy.
REASONS FOR CONSIDERING A TUMMY TUCK:
- Inability of dieting and exercise to improve the abdomen area.
- Excessive accumulation of skin following weight loss.
- Loss of skin elasticity or diastases (loose abdomen muscles) due to pregnancy.
- The removal of unsightly skin and fat deposits as well as the proper alignment of the abdomen muscles to produce a more flattering look.
