What is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover

This is the surgery that can reverse some of the cosmetic changes that arise following pregnancy. Fundamentally there is surgery on both the breasts and the abdomen. The breast surgery addresses the loss of skin tone and volume from pregnancy/lactation. This typically involves a lift as well as possibly augmentation with an implant. The abdominal surgery is typically a tummy tuck including fascial repair and/or liposuction. This surgery is not covered by insurance, although I suspect it might be if it were men who carried and nursed babies!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    Fees for this surgery (breast and abdomen) range from $9000 to $18000, depending on extent of surgery, implants, etc. A consultation is the only way to get a precise quote.

    I had my first baby just over a year ago. After an emergency c section I became sepsis and had my wound burst open. My scar went from nice and clean to what looks like a crater. Can this be fixed. I still haven lost all my baby weight, I think I’m at 140. I don’t want full liposuction or tummy tuck I just want the scar to look clean at least.
