The most popular combination plastic surgery procedure is the Mommy Makeover. It was designed for women who want to address issues with their body post-pregnancy and after breastfeeding. The surgical technique became popular among celebrities and found its way into mainstream society. The “Mommy Makeover” is a phrase that refers to a specialized combination of body contouring procedures, performed together to improve the physical changes that women are discouraged by after pregnancy. There is no set procedure for a Mommy Makeover; each procedure is custom-tailored to fit the individual patient’s unique needs.
Breasts and abdomen are common areas that change during motherhood. Therefore, Mommy Makeover procedures frequently focus on the breast and abdomen area. Please discuss with Dr. Bennett if there are any other issues you would like to address.
Mommy makeovers may include:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
- Circumferential Abdominoplasty
