Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of procedures that improve a woman’s body after pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. The female is specially prepared for reproduction, but her anatomy is often changed by the experience. We commonly treat “the five B’s:” Breasts (augmentation, lift), Belly (tummy tuck, abdominoplasty), Bulges (liposuction), Baby Weight (ten to one weight loss), and Birth Canal (ThermiVA tightening, labiaplasty).
Serial pregnancies and multiple births impose demands upon the woman’s natural resources. Under hormonal influence, breast volume engorges with life giving sustenance, breast surface area expands, and energy storage (fat) compartment enlarges. Abdominal skin and soft tissue stretch to accommodate the growing baby. The abdominal wall, uterus, pelvis, and vagina all relax and expand for the growing neonate. Changes of pregnancy usually don’t completely revert after childbirth and nursing. Fat that accumulated may stubbornly persist, abdominal wall bulging remains, breasts diminish in volume but relaxed excess skin may not shrink, causing a deflated or sagging maternal breast shape. Pelvic floor relaxation, vaginal canal stretching, and labial changes may result after one or several deliveries. Maternal metabolism may be permanently changed.
