The Mommy Makeover has become a popularized term in recent years. It refers to the combination of surgical procedures that are designed to re-contour the body and breasts that change as a result of pregnancy and nursing.
Common areas of concern include sagging breast skin, loss of breast volume, loose abdominal skin, separation of the abdominal muscles, and fat bulges in the flanks or muffin top. These are issues that cannot be improved through weight loss or exercise alone. The most common surgical procedures characterized as a “Mommy Makeover” include tummy tuck and breast lift with or without a breast augmentation.
While these procedures are often combined very safely and effectively, all factors should be carefully considered, including the convenience of a single anesthetic, recovery time, cost and personal medical issues. All of these important aspects will be discussed in your detailed consultation, and then a plan will be developed that is most suitable for you.
