Mommy Makeover in Tacoma, WA

A mommy makeover is a combination of different plastic surgery procedures with the goal of restoring a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy state. Pregnancy can have very significant changes on a woman’s body. Some of these changes include:
  • loose skin in the abdomen after childbirth or post-pregnancy weight loss,
  • sagging or asymmetrical breasts,
  • stretch marks on the abdomen or other areas,
  • and, loss of firmness in the abdomen.
These changes from pregnancy and raising children can have a negative effective cosmetically and can in some instances affect a woman’s self esteem. For many moms, diets, exercise, and non-surgical methods will not restore their bodies to a pre-baby state.

What Plastic Surgery Procedures Does a Mommy Makeover Involve?

Because the “mommy makeover” involves one or more cosmetic plastic surgery procedures designed to treat specific conditions for individual patients, the procedure is not the same for every patient. The cosmetic surgery procedures work together to achieve the effect of restoring a woman’s body to the state it was in prior to having children. Treatment may involve one or more of the following procedures:
  • Breast lift to reduce sagging breasts caused by pregnancy.
  • Breast augmentation to increase breast volume. For some pregnancies, cup sizes can change significantly after breastfeeding or pregnancy.
  • A tummy tuck procedure to eliminate the sagging skin in the abdomen, which is a common pregnancy side effect.
  • A lower body lift may be advisable for certain patients.
  • Liposuction to reduce an pockets of stubborn fat, often in the abdomen, hips and thighs.
  • Breast reduction for excessively large breasts after having children.
