Mommy Makeovers are becoming more prevalent than ever.  In general, Mommy Makeovers can be defined in many ways.  Dr. Linder performs Mommy Makeovers on many patients throughout the months of the year.  Mommy Makeovers may include breast augmentation (with or without breast lifts) as well as abdominoplasties with liposuctioning of the iliac crest rolls and liposuctioning and sculpting of the thighs.  Dr. Linder’s definition of a Mini Mommy Makeover includes breast augmentation, with or without a lift, and a mini abdominoplasty with liposuctioning of the hips.  This may or may not also include contouring of the inner and outer thighs with liposculpturing.

Women who have had children and/or breastfed, often what is called involutional upper pole atrophy or loss of fullness of their breasts.  Adding an implant as well as lifting the breast if there is significant skin looseness, leads to a beautiful reshaped breast.  The lower abdominal wall, when there is skin redundancy below the umbilicus but not above, may do well with a mini abdominoplasty.  A similar C-section like scar is made and extended toward the hips bilaterally and the tightening of the lower abdominal muscles from the umbilicus to the suprapubic region can be done at the same time.  The example of a mini Mommy Makeover above is showing breast enhancement surgery with a mini abdominoplasty.
