Many mothers find the effects of childbirth and breastfeeding changes the shape and size of their breasts and abdomen. After women are finished having children, many opt to restore their natural look by having the "Mommy Makeover" which is typically a breast augmentation, lift, tummy tuck and occasionally liposuction.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
Mommy Makeover procedures typically consist of:
A breast lift is designed to address sagginess and excess skin in the breasts that can often occur after having children. One of our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. David Buchanan or Dr. Wesley Schooler, can tighten the skin of the breasts, eliminating the excess to form a "perkier," more youthful-looking bustline.

Breast augmentation with implants can give you larger breasts that are more proportionate to your body frame. Silicone or saline breast implants can provide you with more fullness and volume to the bustline with results that look natural and beautiful.

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) addresses the abdominal region, which becomes stretched and lax after pregnancy. The procedure tightens the abdominal muscles and pulls the surrounding skin taut, giving it a firmer, flatter appearance.

Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. This Mommy Makeover option can eliminate excess pockets of fat virtually anywhere on the body, providing a more contoured appearance.

Mommy Makeover procedures can be performed in combination, or over a number of appointments with Dr. Buchanan or Dr. Schooler. In addition to the procedures listed above, our plastic surgeons can also help renew your skin with a number of options such as BOTOX® and other skin rejuvenation treatments to give you a full body and skin makeover.
