The experience of pregnancy and childbirth is both life-altering and physically taxing. Though some women recover completely after having their first child, many sustain damage to one or more areas of their body. This damage, which often includes separated abdominal muscles, stretched skin and changes in the breast and vaginal tissue, is often compounded by subsequent pregnancies. By the time a woman is done having children, she may be shocked to see just how much her body has changed.
While a healthy diet and regular exercise are an important part of any woman’s pregnancy recovery plan, they can’t address the issues mentioned above. Instead, a series of plastic surgery procedures collectively known as a “mommy makeover” are available to repair internal damage and correct aesthetic problems. Typically, a mommy makeover includes several procedures performed at once and is focused on corrective enhancements to restore a woman’s body to a pre-pregnancy figure.
When you come in for a consultation with our all-female team, we start by listening to you. You can tell us which areas of your body you feel have been negatively impacted by pregnancy and childbirth and we will examine those areas in order to determine your surgical requirements. There is no standard set of procedures. Each and every mommy makeover we conduct is completely personalized to meet the patient’s needs and aesthetic goals.
