What is a Mommy Makeover and can I possibly get my flat pre-baby tummy and perky breasts back? The answer is yes. You’ve had your baby(ies), you’ve lost as much weight as you can, but you now have saggy scooped breasts and tummy skin with all sorts of stretch marks, and a wicked alien looking belly button…HELP.

A St. Louis Mommy Makeover can consist of a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation or any combination of the above. You decide what bothers you the most or what you want to achieve. The breasts and tummy can be fixed all in one surgery.

A tummy tuck will repair your split abdominal muscles, remove all the stretch marks below and just above your belly button and can even give your upper thighs a lifted slimmer look. The breast lift will remove the excess skin and reposition your nipples so they look out from your chest and NOT DOWN at your toes. If you want to regain fullness and firmness, you will need a breast implant at the same time as the breast lift.

Take home message: do not despair! First, eat healthy and make time for at least 15 minutes of walking or exercise at least twice a week. Try to cut down on the carbs and portions and then consult a plastic surgeon of your choice who will really hear what you want. Someone who GETS IT.

Don’t be discouraged by your body. Stop your unhealthy eating habits now, before you gain more weight and are even more frustrated with your appearance. That extra skin and lax belly can all be fixed safely.
