Mommy Makeovers by Anthony Terrasse, MD of Lake Forest and Chicago
The term, Mommy Makeover, is used to describe a set of procedures commonly performed to rejuvenate a woman’s body after having children. Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can all cause changes in the skin and muscles of the body in ways that simple diet and exercise may not be able to reverse. The two vertically positioned abdominal muscles can be stretched apart from one another and the overlying skin can become loose and sagging. An abdominoplasty can tighten the stomach muscles and remove excess skin to create a more smoother, tighter, and more youthful looking mid-section with incisions hidden down low. Liposuction can remove stubborn pockets of fat and breast lifting procedures can elevate and reshape the breasts that have become deflated and less attractive. The breast lift, or mastopexy, is sometimes paired with a breast augmentation to also enhance breast size as well as lift them.
