A mommy makeover combines multiple surgical, and sometimes non-surgical, procedures to expertly restore your pre-pregnancy figure with only one recovery. While the procedure is highly customizable, the most common areas addressed are those directly affected by pregnancy and nursing; the breasts, abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
At the time of your initial consultation, Dr. Mark Craig will assess your personal situation and speak with you about your ultimate goals. Using his skill and expertise as a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Craig will work with you to create a treatment plan that will get you the results you want with the least amount of downtime possible. You may be better suited for one or more of the following treatment options depending on your individual concerns.
*Individual Results May Vary*
Breast Enhancement Procedures
The breasts are often affected during pregnancy, childbearing, and nursing. Some women might be unhappy with sagging breasts, while others are more concerned with volume loss. It is not uncommon to see some type of breast enhancement procedure in a mommy makeover. These may include a Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, or a combination of both procedures.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
After pregnancy, having excess fat or skin around the abdomen and flanks can cause women to feel self-conscious. A tummy tuck can help eliminate both of these concerns in a single surgery. The procedure can also visibly reduce the appearance of stretch marks found below the belly button.
Liposuction is commonly added to a mommy makeover for women who want more defined contours. This procedure is ideal for areas of the body that aren’t responding well to traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise. Liposuction can treat excess fat in any of the following areas:
- Abdomen and waist
- Hips and buttocks
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Cheeks, jowls, and neck
Other Mommy Makeover Procedures
What goes into your mommy makeover is completely individual. If you’ve found that you have unwanted fat or excess skin in the upper arms, for example, Dr. Craig may suggest adding an arm lift to your procedure. It is important to be open and honest during the initial consultation phase. Doing so will allow Dr. Craig to provide you with more in-depth information regarding your options so you can get the results that you want.
