So What’s a Mommy Makeover All About?

After gifting the world with a young human being, a new mother has to deal with the effects of pregnancy and nursing. A mother's own physical appearance changes substantially during and after pregnancy and with multiple births, the effects can be very significant.

While these issues are of little consequence during or right after pregnancy, they can have an effect on a women's psyche as tries to rebound to her pre-body form. Even after careful diet and exercise it can be impossible to get rid of the extra tummy skin and sagging breasts. A Mommy Makeover procedure, however, can help restore your body and can be customized to your needs.

So what is a makeover for mommies all about?

A Mommy Makeover is typically a combination of surgical procedures with the ultimate goal of helping mothers get their pre-pregnancy body back. A mother, after pregnancy, may have stretched or sagging breasts, a bulging tummy, and extra fat pockets in several isolated body areas. Consequently, a Mommy Makeover typically includes breast augmentation, a breast lift, or a breast lift with implants, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and liposuction of the abdomen, hips, thighs and back.

However, it is very possible that a makeover may consist of completely different combinations than the typical makeover combo mentioned.
