What does a body makeover really mean?

A body makeover is a catchall term in cosmetic surgery that can refer to several different
surgical and non-surgical procedures combined into one total body makeover often performed in women after childbearing. Most commonly, the mommy makeover involves some type of breast rejuvenation procedure and an abdominal or tummy rejuvenation procedure. Commonly, the breasts after childbearing, and particularly with breastfeeding, may need breast augmentation to restore pre-pregnancy volume and/or a breast lift to give a more shapely or perky appearance.

Concerning the tummy, the most common operation I perform for women after childbearing is an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck to remove excess belly fat. However, some women with more minimal changes may be candidates for a mini tummy tuck, liposuction or even CoolSculpting in their mommy makeovers. Depending on the patient’s health and the amount of excess fat, patients may be able to undergo all operations at once or may need separate procedures to avoid more complications. If all procedures happen at once, patients can have an extensive recovery time as a part of their treatment plan. After their operation, patients can enjoy reduced stretch marks, improved breast volume, a flat stomach, and a reduction in loose skin.
