Mommy Makeover

A "Mommy Makeover" is a combination of procedures that restore a woman's body to its natural, pre-pregnancy state. The goal is to bring back to form what was stretched-out during the growing and nurturing of a child. For many women, this may start with an abdominoplasty, which tightens the excess skin of the lower abdomen, leaving a scar that can be hidden low in the bikini line. Often, many of the stretch marks of the abdomen can be removed with this procedure. The muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened to improve the "tone" of the abdomen. Liposuction is often performed to additionally contour the abdomen. The changes in a woman's breasts are the next area to be addressed, many times during the same operative procedure as abdominal contouring. Often, women complain that they are "empty" or "deflated" and "droopy" or "low." Breast implants can be used to replace the volume of the breasts, and a breast lift might be recommended to tighten the skin of the breasts to a more natural, youthful position.
