What Is a Mommy Makeover?
This customized procedure combination can provide you with the breast and body contours you desire.
Several unwanted changes may develop as the body adjusts to no longer carrying additional weight:
- Excess, sagging skin may develop on the abdomen
- Abdominal muscles may separate and weaken
- Breasts may sag once they no longer hold milk or excess fat
- Stubborn fat deposits may remain throughout the body
Mommy Makeover surgery addresses these aesthetic concerns through a series or combination of cosmetic surgery procedures. It can restore your pre-pregnancy (or pre-weight gain) body, and it can even provide further aesthetic improvements.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Ideal Mommy Makeover candidates are mothers who have healed from the delivery of their child and women who have lost significant weight. Candidates should be in good health and have maintained their ideal weight for three to six months.
Mommy Makeover patients should be finished having children, as a subsequent pregnancy can reverse the surgical results.
When considering a Mommy Makeover procedure, ideal candidates should want to address one or more of the following concerns:
- Sagging breasts
- Deflated breasts/breast volume loss
- Unwanted fat deposits anywhere on the body
- Sagging or excess skin on the abdomen
- Diastasis recti (abdominal wall muscle separation)
