When people consider the term “Mommy Makeover”, many are unsure of what it’s exact meaning is. The answer is that a Mommy Makeover is a variety of operations tailored to the specific needs of my patient. I think of it this way, women’s bodies change with life, whether it is due to pregnancies, weight gains and losses, or just aging of skin and gravity. In general, Mommy Makeovers encompass a woman’s post-pregnancy or aging body issues in a single-session surgery and typically combines some of the following procedures: Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Breast Enhancement – Lift, Augmentation, or Reduction.
Before & After Images
I find that after Mommy Makeover operations, that my patients really do well in the recovery process and very few need more than 2 weeks of time off work and are back to all aspects of life in 3-4 weeks. Women feel transformed in their own bodies and more confident as a result.
Not all women benefit from the same operations, so the best way to find out what the components of a Mommy Makeover mean to you is to come in and meet with myself or Dr. Kathleen Waldorf at The Waldorf Center to discuss what your priorities are and what operations would benefit you most. Our goal is to help you feel great in your skin!
