Although children are a blessing, they sometimes “bless” our bodies with saggy breasts, lax abdominal muscles, and an overall body shape that can make us feel less than, which is why mommy makeovers have become so popular. They can help you restore your body to its pre-baby days by lifting one’s breasts, shrinking one’s waistline, and much more.

During your consultation, we will be sure to outline each procedure and what they entail. We will answer your question and concerns about any of the procedures you are interested in getting done.
It is also important to ask yourself a few important questions before you decide you are ready or want a mommy makeover procedure. The top questions to ask are:
- Am I done having children?
- Am I done breastfeeding?
Usually, mommy makeover surgeries include breast lifts and tummy tucks which can complicate breastfeeding and/or pregnancy.
