What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a custom-tailored set of cosmetic procedures designed to address the physical changes women may experience following pregnancy and childbirth. This personalized approach typically focuses on the abdomen and breasts, areas most impacted by motherhood. Dr. LaBrasca's experience and dedication ensure that each mommy makeover plan aligns with each woman's needs and goals, aiming to rejuvenate each patient's body while enhancing their natural contours.

What does a mommy makeover include?

At LaBrasca Plastic Surgery, Dr. LaBrasca crafts each mommy makeover to match the individual needs and aesthetic goals of his patients. Here are some of the more common procedures included in a mommy makeover at our practice:

  • Breast lift or augmentation: To restore or enhance the breast shape and size after breastfeeding.
  • Tummy tuck surgery: Specifically targets the abdomen to tighten muscles and remove excess skin.
  • Liposuction: Helps refine body contours by removing stubborn fat deposits.
  • Other procedures: Depending on your goals and your body's shape, additional procedures, such as a Brazilian butt lift, might be included to achieve a harmonious overall look.

How can tummy tuck surgery address loose stomach skin?

Tummy tuck surgery is a key element of almost any mommy makeover. This body contouring procedure is specifically aimed at addressing the issue of loose stomach skin — a common complaint after pregnancy. In this procedure, Dr. LaBrasca meticulously removes excess skin that has lost its elasticity and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles to restore the abdomen's original contour. This not only results in a smoother and firmer abdominal profile but also helps correct the abdominal separation that often occurs during pregnancy, leading to a more toned and defined midsection.

When is the best time to consider a mommy makeover?

The optimal time to have a mommy makeover is after you've recovered from childbirth and when you are close to your ideal weight. If you are considering having children in the future, Dr. LaBrasca recommends waiting to ensure your results aren't affected by another pregnancy. You should also have finished breastfeeding, as this can affect the shape of the breasts.
