Should I Include a Tummy Tuck in My Mommy Makeover?

Restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance (or better!) with a Mommy Makeover. A custom set of plastic surgery procedures, a Mommy Makeover is designed to reverse some of the common changes that women experience during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Who says you can’t look beautiful after baby?

If you’re thinking about a Mommy Makeover, you’re probably thinking about a tummy tuck. This question and answer guide will help you determine if a tummy tuck is right for you. Call and schedule your consultation with Dr. Sajjadian for personalized advice and information. One of the best plastic surgeons in the area, he can give you the advice you need for a better post-baby body.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Do you have a “mommy tummy”? Pregnancy can stretch out the abdominal skin and muscles, leaving the belly with a slightly pregnant appearance, even when you’re not. A tummy tuck can reverse these changes by removing excess skin and fat, tightening abdominal muscles, and restoring a flattened appearance to your mid-section. Results are lasting, as long as you don’t have future pregnancies or gain a significant amount of weight after surgery.

Do I Need a Tummy Tuck?

Many women need a tummy tuck after pregnancy. Diet and exercise alone often aren’t enough to reverse the changes to the abdominal area that pregnancy can bring. You might need a tummy tuck if:

  • You have stretched out skin on the abdomen.
  • You have stretch marks below the belly button.
  • The abdominal muscles separated during pregnancy.
  • You are unable to achieve a flattened abdominal appearance with diet and exercise.

If you’re thinking about a tummy tuck, come see Dr. Sajjadian. After an examination, he can determine if a tummy tuck is the right procedure to restore a flattened appearance to your mid-section.

Am I Ready for a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck provides dramatic results, but it isn’t the right choice for every patient. Dr. Sajjadian recommends that you wait until you’ve finished having children before scheduling your tummy tuck. Future pregnancies can reverse the dramatic effect of this popular procedure. Most tummy tuck patients are close to their ideal weight, but still have excess fat and skin in the abdominal area. In some cases, a tummy tuck is paired with liposuction to shape and sculpt the area.

What Other Procedures Should I Consider for My Mommy Makeover?

tummy tuck is an excellent addition to a Mommy Makeover, but it isn’t the only procedure to consider. Many Mommy Makeover patients also get breast surgery (breast augmentation and/or breast lift) and liposuction. What changes did you experience during pregnancy? A Mommy Makeover can help you reverse them.
