What is Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures to correct the breasts and abdomen from signs of pregnancy and breast feeding. As pregnancy affects each woman differently, a mommy makeover is an all-encompassing term with the exact combination of surgeries determined by the individual woman’s particular needs. For the breasts, an augmentation, lift or augmentation lift may be required in combination with a no-drain tummy tuck. Occasionally, other procedures can be performed simultaneously, such as fat transfer (FTP), eyelid surgery, and even a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). Mommy makeover surgery is a unique way to describe rejuvenation of breasts and abdomen, some of the most common physical changes that occur following pregnancy.
