The Mommy Makeover Procedure

The mommy makeover can consist of a number of procedures and is highly personalized to address your individual problem areas. Common procedures include:

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck removes lax skin and excess fat in the abdominal area and tightens loose or separated abdominal muscles. This is one of the most common procedures included in a mommy makeover.

Liposuction

Liposuction removes stubborn areas of fat on almost any area of the body for a more contoured appearance.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is often paired with a mommy makeover to increase the size of the breasts using breast implants for a more balanced silhouette.

Breast Lift

A breast lift treats sagging and uneven breasts by lifting them to a more youthful position.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction reduces the size of overly-large breasts for a more balanced silhouette and improvement in quality of life.
