The Mommy Makeover

After pregnancy, the primary area of concern for women looking to reshape their bodies is the stomach/abdomen, which often times does not “bounce back” after childbirth, especially after multiple pregnancies, even with proper diet and a hearty exercise routine. Pregnancy also often causes unwelcome changes to the shape and position of the breasts. Theterm “mommy makeover” has been used to describe the common surgical procedures used to improve the changes that women see with their bodies after pregnancy. It usually includes a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure, with or without body contouring with liposuction along with some type of breast procedure (breast augmentation, breast lift, or both, or breast reduction). Please refer to each specific procedure on this website to get further instruction.

Combination surgeries must be performed with a high degree of skill, precision, and care. The benefit to the patient is that she is able to enjoy one recovery period and quickly return to her normal activities. Also, there is a financial benefit to combining procedures as the second procedure is usually discounted by the surgeon and the hospital.
