The mommy makeover procedure is an increasingly popular option for moms who want to reclaim their pre-baby body when diet and exercise have failed them. Pregnancy can be hard on the body and leave behind loose stomach skin, asymmetrical or deflated breasts, and an overall loss in confidence in your appearance. Many moms come to us having tried diets and exercise regimens with results they are less than pleased with. Being a mom is a demanding enough job, if you’re ready to do something for yourself and reclaim your body when diet and exercise haven’t been enough, a mommy makeover may be the answer for you.
It can be tailored to your specific needs– Not all bodies are created equal. Some moms experience loose skin and deflated breasts whereas others are left with extra fat in the midsection and larger breasts than they would like. Whether you need a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast reduction, breast implants or any combination of procedures, we’ll tailor your mommy makeover today.
Typical recover time is 2-3 weeks– As a mom, you may be worried about downtime due to your procedure and being able to do your normal family activities.

Also, depending on your procedures, many patients are back to normal in 2-3 weeks.
We recommend patients be close to their ideal body weight– While the procedure can help remove some additional fat on your body that you’re unhappy with, we highly recommend that you be close to your ideal body weight to maintain your mommy makeover results.

Chances are, you know someone who has gotten or considered a tummy tuck at one point or another. The tummy tuck procedure is incredibly popular and can help a variety of patients achieve their body goals as well as boost their confidence in their appearance. The procedure can benefit those with excess skin, excess fat, and those who wish to achieve a slimmer appearance which they’ve been unable to achieve through diet and exercise. While the procedure is widely known and widely popular, there are a few things you need to know before going under the knife.
Tummy tucks aren’t just for one specific group of people– A common misconception about tummy tucks is that they’re just for people who have been overweight and have excess skin, but that’s not the case. Tummy tucks can help patients achieve a slimmer, more toned midsection after weight loss or pregnancy, and can help patients of all ages.
Not all tummy tucks are the same– You may think of a tummy tuck as the typical hip to hip incision but that’s not what every patient needs. Some patients can benefit from a mini tummy tuck, which is sometimes completed by liposuction, and others may need more skin removal through an extended procedure that can target back fat/excess skin as well. The procedure is made to be catered to your specific needs.
The procedure can be combined with others– We often have patients who wish to target more than just their midsection when they come in for surgery. We have also performed breast procedures, arm or thigh lifts, along with other procedures. This is a great option for some patients who wish to combine their recovery time for all procedures and are looking to make major changes in their appearance.
During your consultation, we’ll discuss your specific goals for your procedure, your lifestyle, and procedure options that may benefit you. We’ll go through what you can expect during recovery and once you are fully healed. Our doctors are highly trained and aim for the best possible result for patients using technically advanced procedures. If you’re curious about a tummy tuck, give us a call today.

Hundreds of thousands of women opt to undergo breast augmentation surgery each year. Breast augmentation can help women achieve a variety of breast goals through different types of procedures. While some women opt into the surgery simply to increase their breast size, others hope to achieve more symmetry or restore volume they’ve lost over time. If you’re curious about undergoing a breast augmentation but you’re unsure if implants a right for you, a breast augmentation achieved through fat grafting may be the way to go.
In this procedure, fat is transferred from another area of your body, such as the stomach, into your breast pocket to enlarge and reshape your breasts. This is a great alternative to implants and even allows you to target stubborn pockets of fat in other areas of your body. The benefits of this procedure can include:

We’ll discuss your goals and make suggestions as to the type of procedure that will help you achieve them. Our doctors are highly trained and perform technically advanced procedures to achieve the best possible result for patients. We’ll explain what the procedure involves and what you can expect for your recovery. On average, patients who undergo the fat grafting breast augmentation experience a recovery time of 1-2 days so you can be back to normal in a flash.
As a mom, you work hard enough to keep yourself and your entire family happy and healthy. When you do find time for yourself it can be difficult to eat properly and go to the gym, and even then you may not be seeing the results you want.

Pregnancy can cause major changes to your body. You may be left with loose skin, less full or saggy breasts, and stretch marks. While these are all entirely normal effects of pregnancy, many women feel uncomfortable in their own skin and long for the body they had before the baby. The mommy makeover procedure is designed to help you target specific areas of your body you’re uncomfortable with in ways that can’t be achieved through diet and exercise alone. Benefits can include:
A trimmer midsection
Removal of loose skin
Improved breast size or shape
Reduction in fat in the stomach, thighs, arms, and/or back
Not all mommy makeovers are the same and the procedure is meant to be tailored to each individual. While some patients only want to target a singular area, such as the stomach, others wish to cover several areas, such as the breasts, stomach, and back. During your consultation with the doctors at Bruno | Brown, we’ll discuss the areas you want to see change and how you want them to change.
