Which Procedures do a Mommy Makeover Typically Include?

mommymakeoverAfter pregnancy women may experience dramatic body changes. When exercise and diet do not remove excess weight, women may consider a cosmetic alternative. During a consultation, these women can opt for a mommy makeover in our Maryland locations. A mommy makeover, performed at our Maryland facilities, offers women a package of surgical options. What can a mommy makeover do? Read below for more information:


An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a staple to the mommy makeover package in our Maryland Locations. After pregnancy stretched stomach skin may remain. This excess skin can pose a problem for many women; they may feel uncomfortable in a swimsuit or feel insecure about their post-baby body. A tummy tuck can not only trim away excess skin, but also tighten muscles. Women may experience a more toned look to their stomach; sometimes the procedure is also effective at minimizing stretch mark visibility as well.

Breast Lift

Once the stomach has been enhanced, Dr. Birely can also make alterations to the breasts. In Baltimore, many women choose breast augmentations or lifts in combination with their tummy tuck. After pregnancy and breast feeding, the breasts may rest lower on the body. Women may feel their post-baby body figure is less feminine. Dr. Birely may insert implants, or lift the tissue to recreate a women’s figure. The “girls” have been through a lot during the pregnancy phase; a boost can help women feel better in their skin once again.


Finally, liposuction can make the final touches during a mommy makeover. Residual pockets of baby fat can see improvement. These diet and exercise resistant pockets can be suctioned away during the mommy makeover procedure. Fat around the thighs and stomach can give way to slimmer contours. The mommy makeover procedure can slim the body to a pre-pregnancy state.

These procedures, combined, create the final mommy make over package. Baltimore moms can return to their lives with a deeper appreciation for their bodies. Women opting for a procedure have decided to not have more children and have finished breastfeeding; their new look is there to stay. With maintaining a healthy lifestyle, these women can experience the results for many years after their procedure. Interested in a Mommy Makeover?
