will a mommy makeover take care of all the loose skin from pregnancy?

A: Mommy Makeover

If you have loose skin of your breasts and/or abdomen after pregnancy, a mommy makeover can help remove the excess skin. The term “mommy makeover” typically applies to a combination of a breast procedure (implants +/- breast lift) and an abdominal procedure (tummy tuck vs. mini-tummy tuck) performed at the same time.

The type of procedure(s) depends on the amount and location of excess skin. It’s common for women to experience a decrease in size and fullness of their breasts after pregnancy with a change in their nipple position. Sometimes a breast implant is all that is required to restore the breast’s contour, while some women require removal of excess skin to achieve a nice shape (breast lift).

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine which surgery or combination of procedures is best for you.
