A Mommy Makeover is one of the most rewarding procedures we perform at Specialists in Plastic Surgery. “Why?” you ask. For many women, a Mommy Makeover is the only method to help them achieve their pre-baby body.

Traditionally, a Mommy Makeover is a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring. Targeting common post-baby trouble areas, a Mommy Makeover can consist of one or more of the following:

Breast Enhancement

Breast Augmentation: Many women find that their breasts have suffered a substantial loss of both volume and shape. Using implants, our expert surgeons, like Dr. Daluvoy, are able to give the bosom a voluptuous fullness.

Breast Lift: Similarly, a woman’s breasts may stretch and become elongated. Just as the breasts’ sag, so do the nipples—breasts’ lost their perky position and nipples are likely to point downwards instead of straight ahead. During a breast lift, excess skin is carefully trimmed away and the supporting breast tissues are tightened allowing for the breast to be seamlessly “lifted” to a more youthful and lively position.

Body Contouring

Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck is a great procedure as it works to repair both the internal and external changes that a woman’s body may experience throughout her pregnancy. While the aesthetic benefits are commonly touted, many do not know that a tummy tuck also involves tightening the abdominal muscles that may have stretched during pregnancy. Known as diastasis recti, about two-thirds of pregnant woman will experience some muscle displacement. After retightening the abdominal muscles, your surgeon will carefully trim away excess skin—giving you a once-again, taut tummy.

Liposuction: Mom or not, women love the slimming ways of liposuction. During liposuction, fat cells are gently removed from often hard-to-target areas such as love handles, the buttocks, and the thighs.

Understanding the numerous benefits of a Mommy Makeover are often encouraging to mothers who have struggled to re-gain their feminine physique after childbirth. Along with Dr. Daluvoy, our surgeons at Specialists in Plastic Surgery look forward to working with you throughout this exciting process.
