Many women notice changes in their bodies after having children. A “Mommy Makeover” is a term used for any operation that combines procedures to restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s post-pregnancy body. A Mommy Makeover is designed to fit each woman’s individual needs and the look she desires.
Possible Procedures in a Mommy Makeover:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Buttock augmentation
- Tummy tuck
Post-pregnancy, the breast and abdomen undergo the most changes. With pregnancy and breast feeding, the breasts enlarge but later, the breasts may deflate, leaving smaller, sagging breasts. The muscles and skin of the abdomen expand during pregnancy to make room for the developing baby. Afterwards, the skin and muscle may be stretched and loose.
Breast implants can restore the shape and volume loss of the breasts. Sometimes, a breast lift may also be recommended to remove excess skin and repair the surrounding tissues for support. A tummy tuck is done to repair the abdominal muscles and remove any excess skin. Liposuction may be done at the same time.
There are many procedure options for a Mommy Makeover. During a consultation Dr. Morgan develops an individualized plan for the patient considering personal goals, medical history and life style.
Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover surgery should be in good medical condition, at a healthy body weight and be finished with childbearing.
