Is a “Mommy Makeover” Right For You?

Mommy Makeover in Philadelphia, PAAlthough giving birth is a tremendously rewarding experience for women, due to the dramatic physiological changes pregnancy causes, women sometimes lose self-confidence after delivery.  Changes to the body include drooping breasts, stretch marks, pockets of abdominal fat and a sagging tummy.  These changes can still be present years after pregnancy no matter the attention paid to diet and exercise.  I often recommend a post-pregnancy rejuvenation, or “Mommy Makeover” to help women feel like themselves again.  Mommy Makeovers have been extremely popular in the last several years. Even mothers with college-age children are opting for the procedures.

What Exactly is a Mommy Makeover?

The Mommy Makeover typically includes three surgical procedures: breast surgery (enlargement, reduction or lift), liposuction and a tummy tuck.  When performed together, these procedures help patients quickly regain their feelings of confidence and beauty.  But because pregnancy affects each woman differently, with age and genetics playing a role, I spend time with each patient to consider what procedures will be most beneficial for them, they may not need or want the “full package”.

Post-pregnancy changes in breast size or shape can be addressed with augmentation alone or in conjunction with breast lift. Breast lifts help those with enlarged or drooping breasts and is sometimes combined with liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue. Some women undergo a breast reduction to reshape the breast to a smaller size.  These procedures result in a natural, more sculpted shape.

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck tightens the abdominal wall, removes excess skin and eliminates redundant fat. Hernia repairs should be done at the same time as the abdominoplasty. Patients who undergo abdominoplasty gain a slimmer, tighter and flatter silhouette.

Liposuction offers additional help for women seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. It can be done alone or in conjunction with abdominoplasty. By removing excess fatty tissue, I can reshape patient’s bodies to be more smooth and streamlined.

My post-pregnancy rejuvenation patients are always pleased with the results, looking and feeling better with their renewed confidence and poise.
