Happy Mother’s Day from SurgiSpa!
Women’s bodies often change during and after pregnancy. Many of our patients seeking a mommy makeover experience stubborn pockets of fat, loss in the size and contour of the breast, and loose skin and abdominal muscles. Moms become frustrated when diet and exercise don’t seem to be enough.
The “Mommy Makeover” can help moms get back to their pre-baby body. It’s not one specific procedure, but a combination of treatments performed at one time to target areas most affected by pregnancy. Patients at my Las Vegas plastic surgery practice usually choose a combination of the following procedures:
Breast Enhancement: Breast enhancement includes breast augmentation, lift, reduction, and reconstruction. Pregnancy and breastfeeding often lead to the loss of breast tissue and change in natural contour. Augmentation can restore a natural size and shape.

Liposuction: The best candidates for liposuction are people who are of normal weight with pockets of excess fat in certain areas. Smartlipo TriPlex is one of the most cutting-edge liposuction technologies available today, and it’s perfect for moms who want to get rid of stubborn fat.
Tummy tuck: Sometimes liposuction alone won’t create the firmer, slimmer shape patients desire. The abdominoplasty procedure, often called a tummy tuck, is ideal for removing loose skin and stretch marks, and repairing weak, stretched abdominal muscles post-pregnancy.
