Typically after pregnancy women will see changes to their tummy and breasts; so those are typically two areas we focus on. For the breast, it may be as simple as an augmentation or we can go all the way to a formal lift. Likewise, with the tummy, they may just need spot liposuction or they may need a full abdominoplasty or just a modified or mini tummy tuck. Also, the muscles are often stretched with pregnancy and no diet or exercise will bring those back together. We have to reattach those muscles that have been spread apart. A combination of any of those procedures would entail a mommy makeover.
Q: What does a “mommy makeover” accomplish?
What our experts say:
A mommy makeover clearly involves anything you can do to get a woman’s body back after she has had babies. It can be liposuction alone, to a breast lift and a tummy tuck. It rejuvenates the breasts and tummy to what they had before they were pregnant.
