How Much Smaller Can the Tummy Get With Mommy Makeover Surgery?
There’s no question that pregnancy and childbirth affect almost every aspect of a woman’s body, but few features change as much as the midsection. Not only that, but regaining a flat stomach after pregnancy is notoriously challenging, thanks in part to the accumulation of resistant fat cells, extra skin, abdominal muscle separation, and other side effects of pregnancy and childbirth.
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Atlanta, GA board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang understands the frustration women experience in feeling like someone they don’t recognize after having children and is dedicated to helping patients regain a figure they can feel confident about with mommy makeover surgery. Here, you’ll find more information about how a mommy makeover may help to transform your body and, more specifically, help to reverse pregnancy-related changes to your midsection.
What does a mommy makeover do for your stomach?
Mommy makeover surgery often includes treatments and procedures to enhance the breasts, thighs, and other features in addition to the midsection. For the tummy specifically, a mommy makeover may include abdominoplasty surgery (tummy tuck) and liposuction. With this combination, patients have the opportunity to address and correct a long list of pregnancy- and age-related concerns, including:
- Stubborn pockets or bulges of fat
- Muffin top
- Belly pooch or pouch (“mommy pooch”)
- Abdominal muscle separation (diastasis recti)
- Loose skin
- Wrinkled stomach skin
- Abdominal stretch marks
- Stretched-out belly button
Even functional issues, like a ventral hernia, poor posture, and stress urinary incontinence, may be improved with the enhancements made during a tummy tuck as part of a mommy makeover surgery.
After healing and recovery are complete, patients may enjoy a dramatically smoother, slimmer, firmer, and more attractive midsection overall. In fact, many women report their post-mommy makeover tummy looking even better than it did before having children.
How many inches can I lose from my waist with a mommy makeover?
Each mommy makeover — and its results — will be unique to the individual patient and will depend on how much excess skin and fat are present. For example, patients with a great deal of loose skin and stubborn fat will likely lose more inches and/or pounds compared with women who have just a moderate or small amount of skin and fat that needs to be removed. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will assess your areas of concern and determine what results may be possible for you.
Regardless of how much extra skin and unwanted fat are present, it is important to remember that mommy makeover surgery — including its individual components like tummy tuck and liposuction — should not be thought of as a substitute for traditional diet and exercise. Instead, patients should consider the mommy makeover a solution for addressing aesthetic issues that are not responding to diet and exercise in the expected way or at the expected rate. As a complement to a healthy lifestyle, mommy makeover surgery can help patients achieve and maintain a stunning new look that lasts for many years.
