These procedures, when put together, are called the Mommy Makeover.

A Mommy Makeover is several cosmetic procedures that help a woman regain her prepregnancy body shape.
Pregnancy is hard on a woman’s body. It can cause sagging breasts, stretch marks, excess skin around the stomach, and difficulty toning specific parts of the body. Because of this, many women seek ways to restore their physical appearance and reclaim their confidence.
At Pearce Plastic Surgery, Dr. Pearce and the team specialize in cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgery. Using a comprehensive approach, Dr. Pearce meets with you to discuss your cosmetic goals and find the treatment that will provide you with the outcome you’re looking for.
The Mommy Makeover includes several procedures to address cosmetic issues. The Mommy Makeover typically includes:
This procedure uses implants to enhance the size of your breasts. It not only restores your breast volume but also allows your breasts to be reshaped to meet your aesthetic desires.
Typically, Dr. Pearce completes a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation, but not always. This changes the position of the breast on the chest by raising and restoring them to a perkier position, emulating the appearance of younger breasts.
Your abdominal muscles often can’t come back together on their own after pregnancy. Dr. Pearce provides tummy tucks to tighten your abdominal muscles that have loosened. This procedure also tightens the skin over your abdomen to reduce sagging skin and stretch marks.
Liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits from any part of your body that exercise can’t. Dr. Pearce uses liposuction as a body contouring procedure, stressing that it isn’t a weight-loss procedure.
In some cases, Dr. Pearce takes the fat from your liposuction procedure to improve the volume of your breasts or buttocks. This is called a fat transfer.
To qualify for a Mommy Makeover and most other cosmetic procedures, you should be in good health and within 15 pounds of your desired weight. Dr. Pearce might ask you to stop taking certain medications before your procedures. You might not qualify for a Mommy Makeover if you have medical conditions that could complicate the surgery or your recovery.
Additionally, you must be intent on having no more children. This ensures long-lasting results and avoids complications during the surgery.
