• What is a Mommy Makeover?

    A Mommy Makeover is when the breast and tummy areas are addressed with surgery.

    Typically with childbirth, your breasts may sag, or not be as full, as before having kids. Also, as you get older, some of your breast tissue is replaced with fat or simply thins out, resulting in some natural sag. There are several options to correct this, including

    breast lift

    breast augmentation

    breast augmentation with breast lift

    Also with being pregnant, your tummy may have some excess fat, excess loose skin, or both. You may need a tummy tuck, liposuction, or both, to get the most aesthetically pleasing results.

    Before considering surgery, make sure that you’re in good health, and that your weight has been stable for 6 months. I usually like to see patients at least 6 months after childbirth, and preferably longer than that. Working out to lose as much fat as possible, and have loose skin, also helps to get better results after surgery.

    It is usually safe to get all of these procedures done at the same time, but you will pre-surgical clearance from your family doctor before surgery.

    You will also need to make arrangements to have extra help at home to take care of your children for about 2 weeks after surgery. It may be difficult to have the normal flexibility and energy level right after your procedure.

    A typical makeover might include a tummy tuck, a breast procedure such as an augmentation, lift or reduction and liposuction of the legs, arms or trunk.
