Your children have brought great joy into your life. For many women, childbirth is the most precious moment in their lives.
Some areas of a mother’s body, such as the abdomen and breasts, may be affected by childbearing and breastfeeding. These areas may refuse to return to their pre-childbearing shape. Some of the physical changes that happen following pregnancy, such as stretched skin, stubborn fat deposits, and separated abdominal muscles, may only be treated with surgery. No matter how much diet and exercise you endure, your body just does not want to cooperate. You want your body back.

How do you get your body back?

One way is through surgical procedures that have been designed to enhance the bodies of mommies. These procedures are commonly called “Mommy Makeovers”, “Mommie Makeovers”, “Mommy Lifts”, “Mommy Makovers” or “Mommy Tucks”.
and may be tailored to the specific needs of YOUR body, making it as good as or even more appealing than the day you walked down the aisle!

What IS a Mommy Makeover?

Today, more and more women are turning to surgery as a means of restoring their bodies’ youthful appearance, rejuvenating the breasts and abdomen. Mommy Makeovers are a combination of procedures which will restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. They generally feature one or a combination of the following procedures:

“Tummy Tuck” or “Mini Tummy Tuck”,

is the commonly-used term for Abdominoplasty; it is designed to remove extra skin around the midsection. An incision is made well below the navel, where it is least likely to show. Along with removal of excess skin, liposuction and a tightening of separated abdominal muscles may also be done, returning this area of your body to near-prechildbearing appearance. In your case, a “mini-tummy-tuck” may all that is required.

“Breast Lift”,

Otherwise known as Mastopexy, may be used to return sagging or deflated breasts to their youthful shape and contour.
“Breast augmentation”,
also known as Augmentation Mammoplasty, may be used to increase or simply restore breast size. Saline or silicone implants may be used.

“Breast Reduction”,

may be required when the breasts do not return to pre-nursing size or have an unbalanced appearance.


may also be used to remove excess fat from hips and thighs, restoring that youthful appearance.

Today, more and more women are turning to “Mommy Makeover” cosmetic surgery to regain their pre-childbirth figure and to enhance their self-confidence.
Our Mommy Makeovers are designed to help you get your body back after childbirth. While some women have bodies that bounce back after having children, others need a little extra help regaining that youthful bust and flat tummy.

That’s where our skilled and compassionate staff come in. They will help improve your appearance, self-confidence and quality of life.
