What Procedures Can Be Included In A Mommy Makeover?

Being a mom and bringing children into the world is a wonderful title and joyous experience. Unfortunately, along with bearing children, new mothers often feel discouraged about the effects pregnancy and nursing have on their bodies. When diet and exercise aren’t enough to address excess fat, extra skin, or sagging breasts, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Zochowski can perform mommy makeover surgery.


Dr. Zochowski and his teams at Zochowski Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery take pride in these procedures’ remarkable results, both individually and when grouped together, for total body rejuvenation. Learn more about what cosmetic procedures are included in a mommy makeover by reading this article or scheduling a consultation at Zochowski Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift

Most breasts tend to drop naturally due to aging and gravity. When pregnancy and nursing are added into the equation, this can have a negative impact on the look and feel of the breasts. The breasts not only begin to sag but lose much of their volume and firmness. As part of a mommy makeover, Dr. Zochowski may recommend a breast lift procedure. A breast lift can take away excess skin and lift the breasts back into a high position on the chest. Dr. Zochowski may also recommend breast implants as part of the augmentation procedure for patients who would like to enhance their breast size and shape.

Tummy Tuck

Many mothers want to reclaim their pre-baby bodies, and tummy tucks are a popular choice to help do just that. As the abdomen grows to accommodate the baby, the skin and underlying muscles become stretched out. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure that addresses the excess skin and, in some cases, the separated abdominal muscles. Tummy tucks often result in flatter stomachs that look more proportionate with a patient’s body type and figure.


While some women are lucky enough to be able to drop their pregnancy weight without any problems, the reality is that most areas of stubborn fat cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone. Fortunately, liposuction is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that can eliminate fat deposits from areas such as the abdomen, love handles, hips, back, arms, thighs, and buttocks. Dr. Zochowski offers liposuction to sculpt your body back into a slimmer, more comfortable shape that closely resembles the one you had before you were pregnant.
