Mommy Makeover

What is Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover is a unique and individualized combination of procedures designed to tighten the abdominal muscles and enhance the body.
The body goes through a number of physical changes during pregnancy. While some of these changes are temporary, others can remain long after childbirth. Some women struggle to lose all the excess weight they may have gained during pregnancy using traditional methods of weight loss like dieting and exercise. Areas of the body like the upper arms, stomach, thighs, and breast can become saggy as a result of breastfeeding.

Some women may also develop a condition known as diastasis recti as a result of pregnancy. Diastasis recti occurs when the abdominal muscles become stretched and strained during pregnancy, causing them to separate and forming a permanent gap between them. This gap in the abdominal muscles can cause a permanent pooch to form on the stomach that won’t go away no matter how much you exercise and diet. The only way to properly correct the issue is to surgically tighten the abdominal muscles. This surgery is called Mommy makeover.
