The Mommy Makeover is one of many cosmetic procedures intended to restore a woman’s figure after her childbearing years. Typically, a Mommy Makeover may include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and/or breast lift, and liposuction.
During pregnancy, women experience normal weight gain. In some instances, weight gain is significant. After pregnancy, most weight gain dissipates over time. However, the overlying skin can become loose and require tightening. Some women also experience looseness of the breast skin envelope, resulting in a deflated, sagging, or flattened appearance that can feel unattractive. The abdomen might also be stretched from the underlying uterus expansion, causing in a separation of the abdominal muscles in the midline, resulting in a disconcerting bulge in the abdomen (especially with flexing).
The most effective approach to typical post-pregnancy body changes is to perform surgery for both the breast and the body — together.
With the goal of restoring a patient’s pre-pregnancy figure, a Mommy Makeover is typically comprised of several procedures that, together, improve body contours by tightening your underlying tissues and removing excess skin, which may require large incisions that Dr. Cimino can usually place in areas easily hidden by clothing.
