The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeovers use multiple procedures performed during a single operation to address the areas hardest hit by pregnancy. Here are some of the reasons women choose this option:

  • To correct drooping or sagging breasts
  • To restore or add volume to the breasts
  • To improve the look of a lax, protruding abdomen
  • To reduce a "muffin top" or other areas of excess fat

Having separate procedures means paying operating room costs more than once, getting multiple courses of anesthesia, and recovering each time surgery is performed. When Dr. Chaffoo combines procedures, you can avoid that extra expense, inconvenience and discomfort with a streamlined treatment plan.

A Customized Combination

When you meet with Dr. Chaffoo, he will ask which areas of your body you would like to improve, as well as discuss your medical history and any plans you might have for expanding your family in the future. Each mommy makeover is as different as each patient. Here are some of the cosmetic options Dr. Chaffoo commonly performs on his mommy makeover patients:

  • Breast lift: One of the most common concerns for mothers, especially those who have breastfed their children, is drooping or sagging breasts. A breast lift can reposition and reshape breast tissue for a more youthful look.
  • Breast augmentation: Some mothers also lose volume as their breasts change in size during and after pregnancy. To restore volume, or for women who simply want to boost size, Dr. Chaffoo can perform augmentation with implants.
  • Tummy tuck: Another of the most popular mommy makeover options is this body contouring procedure, which tightens excess skin and reduces fat on the abdomen, and repairs separated muscles for a slimmer, flatter tummy.
  • Liposuction: Although liposuction is often performed with a tummy tuck to target bra fat or a "muffin top," it is also a popular mommy makeover option to address excess fat in the thighs, upper arms, or even the neck.
  • Medical spa procedures: Dr. Chaffoo can refresh your face during your mommy makeover with BOTOX®, dermal fillers, or other facial treatments.

Each patient's procedural details and recovery process will be different depending which mommy makeover options are performed. Dr. Chaffoo and his team will make sure to provide you with detailed information on what to expect, and instructions for before and after your surgery.
