Having a child is one of life’s most precious gifts. However, pregnancy and childbearing can often leave you with a body you don’t recognize. If you’re a mom who looks in the mirror and wonders what happened to her once-fit figure, you’re not alone. Women just like you who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth are often left with excess fat, excess stretched-out skin, stretchmarks, sagging breasts and even extra stubborn weight in other areas like the arms and legs.

The good news is there’s a safe and effective way to put things back where they should be with a mommy makeover. Keep reading to learn more about this highly popular cosmetic surgery procedure that offers women the body confidence they desire.

What does a mommy makeover entail?

A mommy makeover by Dr. Andrew Lofman is customized to each patient’s unique needs and body type and includes a variety of procedures.

Typically, a mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck to remove excess fat and sagging skin in the abdominal area. During this portion of the procedure, your abdominal muscles are also tightened. Next, for women who have excess fat in other areas like the hips, buttocks or even arms, liposuction is used to remove the unwanted fat and sculpt the areas.

For those who are unsatisfied with breasts that are sagging or have lost volume, Dr. Lofman can perform a breast augmentation or a breast lift, or a combination of the two to offer you breasts that are perky and voluminous once again.

Some women also option for additional treatments during this time, like facial injectables or even an arm lift. The beauty of a mommy makeover (other than the self-confidence that comes with it) is that because everything is done in one setting, your recovery time is reduced.

Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?

Candidates for a mommy makeover are women who are in good health and are having trouble with diet and exercise getting back to their pre-pregnancy body. You must have stopped breastfeeding and you should be done having children.
