A mommy makeover is a series of personalized cosmetic procedures usually performed in one appointment. Since every mommy makeover is unique and based on the woman, her body, and her goals, there is no standard mommy makeover. However, some of the most common surgeries in a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction. A patient doesn’t have to be a parent in order to get a mommy makeover, and many women who have lost a large amount of weight or experienced weight fluctuations in their life may choose to undergo a mommy makeover.
A tummy tuck is a procedure that removes excess skin from the abdomen while strengthening the abdominal muscles. This can be particularly helpful for post-partum women suffering from torn muscles caused by pregnancy. A mini tummy tuck exclusively addresses the skin below the navel. Many tummy tucks also include bellybutton reconstruction and liposuction in the abdomen to remove fatty deposits.
Breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of the breasts with breast implants. It is one of the most commonly requested breast procedures alongside a tummy tuck. However, some women prefer a breast lift, which removes excess breast skin for a more youthful appearance without increasing size via implants.
Liposuction can also be used around the breast area to further enhance shape and reduce “bra bulge.” No matter which procedures you choose to include in your mommy makeover, each makeover is customized for the best possible outcomes.
