Mommy makeover has become a popular term to describe various plastic surgery procedures done to reverse the damaging effects to a woman’s body after childbirth. Both pregnancy and nursing can lead to stretching of the lower tummy, development of multiple stretch marks, localize deposits of fat in the hips and stretching and sagging of the breasts. Once most women lose their prepregnancy weight and have decided that they are no longer planning any additional children I most typically offer them either a mini abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with liposuction, breast augmentation or breast lift. Frequently, a combination of these plastic surgery procedures can be done under the same anesthetic. I commonly perform tummy tuck and breast surgery simultaneously in Pasadena since this saves the patient a second operation therefore saving them money and allowing them to return to normal activities much quicker . Other procedures that can be offered to women who have gained significant weight during pregnancy might also include arm lift (brachioplasty) and thigh lift. These operations should only be performed once all the excess weight has been lost.
