From poopy diapers to sticky fingers, being a mom isn’t always the most glamorous job in the world. Motherhood can take its toll on your body as well. From sagging breasts brought on by breastfeeding, varicose veins from pregnancy and of course stretch marks and loose tummy skin, a new mommy body can be a hit to your self-esteem. If you’re feeling down in the mommy dumps (or if you just want to look and feel your best) come in for a “Mommy Makeover”. We will help you transform your body from tired and sagging to empowered and uplifted.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

O-B_shutterstock_115408207Pregnancy and childbirth forever leaves it mark on a mother’s body. Breasts that were once full and firm may become smaller and saggier. Stomachs are never quite as toned or as flat as they once were, even with regular trips to the gym. And don’t forget the changes to your lady parts; pregnancy can cause labial swelling and discomfort long after baby is delivered. A mommy makeover is exactly what you need it to be. We help you pinpoint problem areas caused by pregnancy and childbirth and discuss what can be done to restore your body, if not to its pre pregnancy glory, then maybe to a new you! No two mommies are alike and your makeover will be custom tailored to your body and needs.

Common Mommy Makeover Treatments

While every treatment plan is different, several procedures offered in our Nashville offices are commonly requested as a part of a mommy makeover:

  • Liposuction– Hormonal changes during pregnancy can cause stubborn fat deposits. The process of pregnancy can change curves, sometimes not for the best. Liposuction can provide excellent results when used for contouring. We can use liposuction to refine and reshape your new curves helping your post-baby body to look its best.
  • Tummy Tuck– Accommodating a growing baby can put a great deal of stress on the abdominal wall causing the muscles to stretch and separate. Tightening the abdominal muscles and/or skin can help to correct some of the stretching that occurs during pregnancy. While there is no quick fix for stretch marks, tightening the abdominal skin may make a difference in their appearance.  Do you need a tummy tuck as a part of your mommy makeover?
  • Labiaplasty– Congestion caused by pregnancy can cause permanent changes to the labia. Some women find their labia minora hang below their labia majora causing discomfort and embarrassment. We can shorten and reshape the labia using a simple procedure known as labiaplasty.
  • Breast Augmentation– Pregnancy can cause a lot of changes to the breasts. From changing nipple size and placement to loss of breast volume, many women choose to include some type of breast augmentation or reshaping in their mommy makeover. We can add implants, reshape your breast tissue or make changes to your current implants so you can have the breasts of your dreams once again.
