Which Procedures Make Up A Mommy Makeover?

, , , , ,

Are you unhappy with your post-pregnancy body?  If you are, a mommy makeover can restore your pre-baby body for you.   A mommy makeover consists of multiple procedures that can be customized to meet the specific aesthetic goals of each patient.  So let’s take a look at the procedures that make up a mommy makeover.

A mommy makeover typically includes the following:

Tummy tuck

Moms often have loose skin, stretch marks, and weak or separated abdominal muscles after pregnancy.  These are all issues that can be corrected with a tummy tuck.

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is designed to firm and tone the tummy by removing sagging, excess skin and fatty tissue, and tightening the abdominal muscles.

Breast augmentation/Breast Lift

The breasts undergo significant shifts during pregnancy, and they often become fuller and then deflate. Consequently, many women also choose to have a breast lift and/or breast augmentation to combat these changes.  

Breast augmentation typically uses breast implants to restore lost volume, making the breasts fuller and larger.    Breast lift surgery lifts and firms droopy, sagging breasts and restores them to a perkier, more youthful position on the chest wall.

Breast Reduction

The breast tissue often swells during pregnancy causing the breasts to increase in size.  After childbirth, the breasts generally revert to their original shape, but sometimes they remain excessively large resulting in a lot of physical discomfort.  A breast reduction is therefore the best solution.

Breast reduction surgery removes excess skin and fat, and some tissue, so as to  restore the breasts to a size that is proportionate to the rest of the body.


Liposuction assists with body contouring, as it gets rid of unwanted pockets of fat that are often difficult to remove with diet and exercise.   Popular areas for liposuction include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and hips.
