A mommy makeover is also extremely popular. I do a lot of that in my practice. So it's basically bringing the sexy back to our moms, bringing back the body that they used to have before the babies messed it up. Typically that's a combination procedure with the breast augmentation or a breast lift with an augmentation, and either just liposuction of the abdomen with a Brazilian butt lift, or a tummy tuck.

The amount of time before going back to exercise depends on the procedure that was performed. Typically if somebody has a tummy tuck, they usually can go back to the gym about four to six weeks because we really do tighten the muscles internally to flatten it out an repair what was damaged by the pregnancy.

That's very dependent on the patient, number one, how healthy they are and how much they exercised before the surgery. Typically at about four weeks the patients are able to do cardio exercises such as running, swimming. I don't recommend doing any sit-ups until about six to eight weeks, but they could work on their arms and their legs.
