What is a “Mommy Makeover”?

There is no exact definition of what a “Mommy Makeover” entails. For most women, having a child or several children, definitely takes a toll on their body. For most women, it means loose skin on their belly. In addition, the fascia, which is the thin leather like structure over the abdominal musculature, stretches. Think of a nice leather suitcase which is stuffed full of clothes for months and does not regain its tight original tone. This most likely requires a Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty.

For some women, their breast volume decreases, leaving their breasts looking more like deflated balloons. Sometimes the shape is good but they just need volume and a breast implant will do a great job. Other times, the breast become ptotic (droopy) and they will require a breast lift at the same time. There are different types of lifts but basically it comes down to a circum-areolar incision or a circum-areolar incision plus they a vertical incision. This vertical scar fades very nicely with time and allows me to actually tuck up the breast tissue, which is necessary for those women with a more serious degree of droopiness or who have more substantial breast tissue hanging down.

Sometimes after having babies, there is a shift in a woman’s fat distribution and they may find that it is very difficult to get rid of stubborn fat in the love handles or on their saddle bags or sometimes the abdomen. Occasionally fat accumulates under the chin and in the neck area. These areas are usually very nicely treated by Smart lipo or tummy tuck.

The Mommy Makeover can treat all of these concerns in one sitting and for other women it makes more sense to stage these procedures over different sittings. i would encourage you to come in for a free cosmetic consult.
