I'm glad to be able to offer what we call a Mommy Makeover. Basically what it is is to try to regain some of the shapes mothers had before pregnancy. Mothers after delivering their babies, they forget about taking care of their body and one day they wake up, and they find that their breasts are droopy, the abdomen has gained some volume, the thighs are different. And they come and ask the plastic surgeons to make some changes in their body. Most women will lose some volume of their breasts after having the baby and breast feeding. So we talk about breast augmentation, or breast lift, depending on the situation. I exam carefully the patient, and we discuss what they're looking for. The most important thing is that the patient needs to do this to become convinced that this is necessary for herself. After that we talk about the abdomen. I check the skin laxity. I check if she needs some liposuction. And most of the time we try to find a balance, and do the minimal of things so that they don't have to run out of budget, especially that they have a family now. The consultation will determine what women want and what they need, and I will be more than happy to sit down with you and talk about the Mommy Makeover.
