Life can bring about beautiful moments like childbirth or the richness of experiences that come with achievements like weight loss; however, both of these can negatively affect the attractiveness and youthful allure of the female body.

Unwanted alterations can even make wearing certain clothes that once flattered your body a nightmarish experience filled with self-doubt. Luckily, the Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive surgery that combines multiple cosmetic procedures to address various aesthetic concerns. 

Dr. Linder can perform a Mommy Makeover to help restore the lean and sculpted look of your physique.

Why Would I Consider Combination Plastic Surgery?

After having children (or undergoing significant weight loss), many women experience a change in their physique, and this change is often not limited to one area of the body. Usually, women experience drooping breasts (that have also lost volume) as well as loose skin and excess fat deposits in their abdomens. 

One surgical technique is not enough to address all of these concerns; however, all of these concerns can be treated at one time with a Mommy Makeover. 

This comprehensive plastic surgery technique is tailored to the patient and often combines breast augmentation surgery, breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and liposuction.

How Is Mommy Makeover Performed?

Since a Mommy Makeover will likely include the steps of breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, and body contouring surgeries, Dr. Linder and his team will provide an in-depth evaluation of your needs. 

From there, Dr. Linder will help patients choose their implant type, incision techniques, and implant placements. Tummy tucks typically include highly precise incisions around the bikini line so that excess skin may be removed, and the abdominal wall can be tightened. 

Dr. Linder will walk you through the process of any additional procedures during the consultation.

What Areas Can You Treat With a Mommy Makeover?

Lower Body (Abdomen, Hips, Thighs)

Abdominoplasty, in combination with liposuction, can eliminate undesired ‘love handles,’ the dreaded ‘muffin top,’ or hard-to-treat ‘lower belly pooch.’ This will create a leaner, slimmer, and more toned appearance in the abdomen. 

Overall a Mommy Makeover can make dramatic improvements to the sensuality and youthfulness of the lower body.  

Upper Body (Breasts)

Between deflation and sagging, the breasts take a beating with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Linder can perform a breast lift for patients who experience significant sagging in the breast (or significant heaviness and weight with a breast reduction) and breast augmentation for women desiring greater breast volume and symmetry.
