A Mommy Makeover is designed to reverse the changes that a woman’s body might experience during pregnancy. After having children, the breast can become smaller and not as firm. Sometimes one breast is noticeably smaller that the other. The breast can start to sag as a result of the tissue expanding and shrinking. Another result of pregnancy is loose skin and stretched abdominal muscles that do not respond to diet and exercise.
A Mommy Makeover consists of three different procedures: abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, and breast augmentation and/or breast lift. With the Mommy Makeover, the breast augmentation and/or breast lift is intended to correct the excess skin in the breast that developed during pregnancy. Removal of the excess skin, allows for a firming up and lifting of the breasts. This will create a look and feel to the breasts that is comparable to their look and feel before pregnancy.
The Mommy Makeover does two things to the tummy to help it look similar to the way it did before the pregnancy. First, the muscles of the stomach are tightened. This helps hold the contents of the abdomen in tighter, creating a flatter appearing stomach. Next the extra skin that developed in pregnancy is removed so that tummy area has a much smoother feel.
