What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a group of procedures that are frequently offered together which address areas typically affected as a result of childbirth. Although childbirth is a wonderful experience, many women are less than enthused about the changes to their body that go with it. As the baby grows larger the abdominal muscles stretch and separate. This is called diastasis recti. The skin of the lower abdomen also stretches resulting in stretch marks and damaged skin. The breast tissue enlarges during pregnancy and as a result the skin stretches to accommodate for this added tissue. Unfortunately after breastfeeding, the milk producing tissue of the breast resorbs leaving stretched skin and a saggy, deflated appearance to the breast. It is also common for women to notice isolated areas of fatty tissue that were not there prior to pregnancy and are resistant to diet and exercise.
Several cosmetic surgical procedures have been developed to address each of these concerns and they include:
The mommy makeover combines some or all of these procedures at one time to address all of the areas of concern. The benefit is that the patient has only one recovery period and needs to pay for only one hospital/anesthesia charge.
