What Should I Know About a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a term for multiple procedures that might be done all at once or in stages to help you achieve your personalized results. These procedures all focus on the removal of excess skin and fat that have accumulated after pregnancy or pregnancies. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your skin, so if you are in good health and are at a comfortable weight, a mommy makeover can be a great step on your journey to looking and feeling like yourself again.
A mommy makeover requires multiple incisions across several areas to remove excess skin and fat. This process allows for tightening and re-positioning tissue for a more smooth, lifted, and natural appearance. The incisions are dependent on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed.
