What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Your LPS surgeon will advise you on which procedures will work best for you based on your goals. The general core of a mommy makeover includes:
- Tummy tuck (also known as abdominoplasty)
- Breast enhancements (e.g. mastopexy, breast augmentation)
Your mommy makeover can also include a labioplasty or facial enhancement procedures. While a mommy makeover usually includes breast enhancements, this can consist of a breast lift (mastopexy), augmentation, or even a reduction.
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
The most common part of a mommy makeover is a tummy tuck. Pregnancy stretches the abdominal skin, loosens or separates abdominal muscles, and causes sagging. During a tummy tuck, your LPS surgeon will typically use an incision hidden below the bikini line to repair the abdominal muscles and tighten the skin.
If your breasts lost volume or started to sag after pregnancy, your surgeon may recommend breast lift with or without a breast augmentation. Your surgeon will perform liposuction on any areas that need it, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and upper arms. Other procedures will depend on your treatment plan.
