This 30 year old patient came to see Dr. Medalie at his Beachwood, Ohio clinic to discuss mommy makeover surgery. She elected to have a full abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck) with liposuction of the abdomen, flanks and sides as well as a full breast lift (also known as a mastopexy). She also had excess tissue in the armpit region (axillary ectopic breast tissue) which she wanted to be removed. The surgery was performed as an outpatient and the patient is shown 9 months after her body contouring procedure. She is extremely happy with her new abdominal contour and her rounder and perkier breasts. Her armpit region is also much smoother with minimal bulging.

The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks. A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:

  • Desired amount of restoration
  • Placement of the incisions
  • Type of implant used
