Mommy Makeovers remain one of the most popular body shaping combinations for women. The combination of Breast Enhancement and Belly Embellishment is often performed after childbirth and/or weight loss, with the goal of reestablishing more shapely and youthful proportions. While Breast Augmentation with a Tummy Tuck is the most common combination, it is important to pick the procedures most appropriate to your needs. Below, I discuss the options for rejuvenation of the breasts and the belly.

Breast Enhancement

Breasts often change with pregnancy and breast feeding. Variations are common, but typically breasts increase with pregnancy and then end up smaller after lactation ceases. The problems come when the postpartum breasts are too small, too saggy or remain too large (less common but, can be just as annoying).

Breast atrophy after pregnancy is very common. Breast Implants can restore lost volume and restore the proportions that enhance the breasts' shape both in and out of clothing.

It is best to wait at least three months after lactation ceases before having any breast procedure. This allows the breasts to settle down to a consistent shape, providing more predictable and safer surgery. Depending on your experience and goals, options for Breast Enhancement include:

Belly Embellishment

Bellies, too, get stretched out during pregnancy. Subsequent pregnancies tend to increase injury, especially if close together. Working out and abdominal exercises help, especially if you are in good shape before pregnancy and maintain a healthy weight during pregnancy. Even under the best circumstances, a big healthy baby can trump a flat healthy belly. The options for tummy rejuvenation include:

After pregnancy, or weight loss, the abdominal muscles, skin and fat can all be compromised. Fortunately, the Tummy Tuck can repair all three areas. Be certain to find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience for your belly rejuvenation.

Liposuction can also be used in combination with either of the Tummy Tucks, and the fat removed with Liposuction can be repurposed to enhance other curves, like the buttocks when combined with a Brazilian Butt Lift. If you are wondering which procedure is best for you, an in-person consultation is the best way to find out. I have a page on my main website that explains some of the decision points when trying to decide: Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?
