If you're thinking about reclaiming your pre-baby shape, you're not alone. Many mothers like you are choosing to embark on a transformative journey after childbirth. Here at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Atlanta, GA, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang understands the changes your body has gone through. With a mommy makeover, he offers a tailored approach to help restore your figure and rejuvenate the areas most impacted by pregnancy and breastfeeding. A frequent question we hear is: "Can a mommy makeover improve the appearance of my stretch marks?" Dr. Mang is here to guide you through the possibilities.

What causes stretch marks, and how does pregnancy affect your skin?

Stretch marks, those lines that can appear on your belly, hips, and breasts during pregnancy, result from rapid stretching of the skin. Hormones during pregnancy also affect your skin's elasticity and make it more prone to stretch marks. While they are a natural part of the pregnancy journey for many, they can also be a source of self-consciousness for new mothers.

What is a mommy makeover, and what procedures are typically involved?

A mommy makeover is a tailor-made solution that targets the areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth. Dr. Mang at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Atlanta, GA, carefully assesses each patient's unique needs to recommend the best combination of procedures. These often include:

  • A tummy tuck to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles
  • A breast lift or augmentation to restore the breasts' shape and volume
  • Liposuction to help reduce stubborn fat deposits

The goal is to help mothers feel confident and comfortable in their skin once again.

Can a mommy makeover reduce my stretch marks?

A mommy makeover typically includes a combination of procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction. While it's primarily designed to tighten loose skin and remove excess fat, removing skin during a tummy tuck can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the excised skin. However, it's essential to have realistic expectations about what the surgery can achieve regarding stretch marks treatment. A mommy makeover typically works to:

  • Remove loose, saggy skin that may contain stretch marks
  • Improve the overall appearance of your skin
  • Enhance your body contour

Remember, while a mommy makeover can offer significant improvements, not all stretch marks may be addressed through these procedures.
