Mommy Makeover Q&A
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is not just one treatment, but a customized combination of procedures that restore your physique following childbirth.
Dr. Li can enhance your breasts, smooth your tummy, and contour your lower body to restore your shape following pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding.
Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?
Prior to your mommy makeover, you’ll meet with Dr. Li for a comprehensive physical exam and discussion of your body concerns and goals. A mommy makeover may be right for you if you have:
- Drooping breasts
- Stubborn, diet-resistant pockets of fat on your abdomen and thighs
- Excess skin or skin laxity
What procedures are included as part of a mommy makeover?
Your mommy makeover is customized to you. Dr. Li may recommend any of the following as part of your personal plan:
Pregnancy can change your breasts, causing sagging, loss in volume, or too great an increase in volume. Dr. Li can help with breast augmentation, breast lifts, or breast reduction.
During pregnancy, you may experience a separation or stretch of your abdominal muscles, making a flat stomach impossible. Pockets of fat and excess skin in the abdominal area can also be bothersome. A tummy tuck removes the extra skin and fat and tightens slack muscles to give you a firmer belly.
Liposuction helps reduce stubborn pockets of fat from specific areas of your body, including your abdomen, back, thighs, arms, or chin.
