The Mommy Makeover is a way for women to "repair the damage that pregnancy has given them in the breast area and also in the abdominal region," states Dr. David Broadway, a plastic surgeon who performs the Mommy Makeover in Denver.
This procedure typically consists of receiving a breast augmentation, a breast lift, traditional liposuction or laser lipolysis, a tummy tuck, or some combination of these procedures. The Mommy Makeover is an ideal procedure for women because several procedures are performed at once, therefore minimizing overall downtime and restoring women back to their old, sexy selves in less time.
After pregnancy, many women lose volume in their breasts. A breast augmentation, in the form of a breast lift or breast implants can restore, or simply add volume and create fuller and uplifted breasts.
Women often experience diastasis recti, a condition when the abdominal muscles have separated from the stomach's wall creating unwanted, loose skin on the tummy. This can be taken care of with a tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck.
Dr. David Broadway describes the typical patient as a younger woman that has finished having a family and has started to notice the unfortunate changes in her body, breast and abdomen.
