Looking to get your body back to what it used to be before having children, but can’t seem to tighten up certain areas? Then a mommy makeover procedure may be just want you need!
After having a baby, a woman’s body can sometimes have a hard time going back to the way it used to be. With the added baby weight, as well as stretch marks that come with the expanding skin, sometimes just working out and eating right isn’t enough to get back to what you desire.
A mommy makeover procedure actually consists of a number of different procedures rolled into one. Think of it as a package deal that is designed to help new moms take that last leap that a fitness regimen just can’t help with.
Your surgeon will be able to talk to you about which procedures your body is best suited for, so there’s no need to have all of these done, but these are the procedures that can help tighten up loose skin, repair stretch marks, and help with other areas of the body that may have been affected during pregnancy.
Surgical Mommy Makeover Procedures
These procedures will require semi-invasive surgery in order to help restore the body. Unlike non-surgical procedures, which consist of things like injectables, fat cooling techniques, and other treatments that do not require incisions in the skin.
Tummy Tuck / Liposuction
As we all know, having a baby does a number of incredible things to a woman’s body. The organs adjust to add the space needed to allow the baby to thrive and grow, while the outer skin stretches to accommodate the growing baby inside. This skin stretching and growth can cause unwanted side effects after the baby is born.
Skin is naturally elastic, but only to a certain point. Once your skin stretches beyond it’s capacity, it’s hard to get it back to where it once was without a little outside help, and that’s where a Tummy Tuck and/or liposuction can come into play.
A tummy tuck can help tighten up the muscles in the abdomen, while also helping to remove excess skin that may be loose from where it wasn’t able to fully bounce back to it’s original state.
Liposuction can help eliminate stubborn pockets of fat around the belly area that diet and exercise just don’t seem to be helping with.
Breast Lift, Augmentation, Reduction
In addition to changes in the abdomen area, female breasts undergo a massive change during pregnancy. Breast become larger and, in most cases, become the primary food source for a newborn baby. Between the weight gain and hormone changes that occur during pregnancy, and milk production and breast feeding after the baby is born, breasts can lose their firmness and begin to droop or sag once the bottom begins to return to pre-pregnancy state.
As part of a mommy makeover, the breasts can be reshaped, adjusted, and lifted to create a more natural, pre-pregnancy, look and feel. Implants can also be added to adjust size and shape as well.
Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures for women post pregnancy and is a specialty here at Dr. Adams Plastic Surgery.
Augmentation is truly the only way to restore your breasts to what they previously were, and can do wonders for your self-esteem.
If you’re looking to for something a little less invasive than the procedures mentioned above, then injectables or tightening solutions are a great way to boost your confidence and help restore your body without having to go under the knife.
Injectables and Facial Fillers
Injectable fillers are a great way to help alleviate wrinkles, aging lines, and other facial imperfections without having to undergo surgery. They can also be used to help enhance your lips, reduce noticeable scars, and give you an overall more youthful appearance.
As technology continues to advance, new methods for tightening up loose skin have emerged. Whether you’re looking to tighten up your loose underarms, thighs, or belly, there are a variety of options out there now that can help.

A mommy makeover doesn’t just consist of a single procedure or treatment to help you get back to your pre-pregnancy self, it incorporates a variety of procedures and techniques to help you to feel your best.
Getting your body back the way you want it, post-pregnancy, is something that a lot of women strive for, but sometimes it’s not as easy as expected, especially towards the end. The body changes once you have a baby and things that may have worked in the past, like exercise and proper diet, may not get you across the finish line.
