Fortunately, there are many treatments available to correct or improve these common post-pregnancy changes. Many of these procedures are non-surgical or relatively simple outpatient surgeries. Some treatments are possible because of new technology such as lasers and liposuction developed in just the last few years. These surgeries are commonly known as the “mommy makeover”.
Far more important than deciding if a tummy tuck or a mommy makeover is for you is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let him explain why one technique may be better than another and if you need a tummy tuck. Many board certified plastic surgeons provide a free first time consult and you should take advantage of that!
See the below link on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for you!
I have also attached a video for a possible Mommy Makeover Candidate.

- You will probably need a lower body lift and an extended breast lift with implants.
- Find a plastic surgeon near you who does bariatric plastic surgeon and see what is involved.
- Most surgeons offer some form of financing to help our their patients.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Mommy Makeover After Significant Weight Loss
Many female weight loss patients would benefit from procedures similar to a Mommy Makeover, including:
- breast lift +/- implants
- tummy tuck vs. body lift
- possible arm lift
- possible thigh lift
- possible liposuction
To be sure what may benefit you, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
