It’s important to understand that a Mommy Makeover is not a specific set of operative procedures. It refers to the surgery one might undergo after having a baby. Most commonly, it involves having a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation with or without a breast lift. However, it could refer to just one of these procedures or could include SmartLipo, a mini Tummy Tuck or a breast lift.
There is no way I can help you determine via a blog post whether or not a specific surgery is right for you. You really need to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon for a personal consultation (note: a “cosmetic surgeon” is NOT a plastic surgeon – there is no Board certification for this).
Having said that, there are some considerations you can take into account to determine if a Mommy Makeover might be right for you:
If you are thinking of a Tummy Tuck:
If you are thinking of a Breast Augmentation:
What about doing the Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck in the same surgical procedure?
