Mommy Makover

Children bring so much joy to our lives. However, they can also bring unwanted permanent changes to a woman’s body that cannot be reversed with diet and exercise alone. The Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of surgeries that are frequently performed in combination to reverse the otherwise irreversible changes in the body after pregnancy.

Frequently the following combination of surgeries is used by Dr. Mussman to perform a “Mommy Makeover”:

1. Breast augmentation – to address the deflation or postpartum involution of the breasts after breast feeding has ceased

2. Breast lift (Mastopexy) – to address the droop of the breasts after breast feeding has ceased

3. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – to remove the excess skin and tighten the underlying musculature that has been irreversibly stretched from pregnancy.

4. Liposuction – to allow for fine tuning of the fat deposits of the abdomen, flanks, and thighs.
