A mommy makeover can help you reverse those post-pregnancy changes so you can get your body back. This Mother’s Day celebrate yourself with a better body. You can have kids and a great body too!

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a complete transformation for a post-pregnancy body. It is a carefully chosen combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to reverse and correct changes to your body after pregnancy. It is completely customized to your needs and focuses on your problem areas. When you’ve finished bearing children, come see us for your mommy makeover.
Although your mommy makeover is customized to you, it commonly includes breast surgery and a tummy tuck. Learn a bit more about each of these options below.

Tummy Tuck- Restore a Tight, Flat Abdominal Appearance

We almost always include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with a mommy makeover. After pregnancy, especially multiple pregnancies, many women have stretched out, loose abdominal skin. Pregnancy can also weaken the abdominal muscles and cause them to separate. A tummy tuck addresses these issues and helps restore a flatter, tighter abdominal appearance.
Dr. Fasching starts each tummy tuck with liposuction to remove unwanted fat in the area. Then he makes a long incision across the lower abdomen, extending from hip to hip. He removes excess skin. Then he tightens and supports the abdominal muscles by positioning permanent, internal sutures in the muscle fascia. This acts as an internal corset, holding and support the muscles for years after surgery. He redrapes the abdominal skin, pulling it tight, and closes the abdominal incision. The belly button is the repositioned. Many women find their abdomen is better after a tummy tuck than it ever was before baby.

Breast Surgery- Get Youthful, Perky Breasts Back

Breast surgery is a must for most women thinking about a mommy makeover. Breastfeeding takes its toll on the breasts leaving mothers with saggy breasts and downward pointing nipples. Many women have a smaller cup-size after pregnancy than did before their first baby.
Breast lift surgery and breast augmentation can correct these changes and restore a youthful appearance to the breasts. Dr. Fasching can also adjust nipple position and resize as needed.
