Mommy Makeover Bellevue

Having children is a wonderful experience. However, going through pregnancy and childbirth may leave you with excess skin, a loose midsection, and a loss in breast volume. The good news is you can resolve these concerns through a safe, effective procedure known as a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover combines a tummy tuck and breast surgery for a total body lift and tightening. With a mommy makeover from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kris Day in Bellevue, you can increase your self-confidence and feel good in your post baby body.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover pairs multiple surgeries into one, allowing you to achieve a slimmer, more toned appearance after you’ve had children. Some of the procedures that may be involved in a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation. Your unique aesthetic concerns and goals will determine the right combination of surgeries.

While results vary, most patients treated with a mommy makeover will often enjoy a toned figure, flatter midsection, less abdominal fat, and perkier breasts. Dr. Kris Day is happy to show you before and after pictures of our patients so you can get a realistic idea of the results.

Good Candidates for a Mommy Makeover

If you’ve given birth and would like to improve your post baby body, you may benefit from a mommy makeover. This is particularly true if you’re bothered by loose skin, fat bulges, excess fat deposits, and sagging or low-hanging breasts. If these issues bother you and you would like to regain your confidence, a mommy makeover should be of interest to you.

In order to be a good candidate for a mommy makeover, you should be done having children and have given birth and stopped breastfeeding at least six months ago. It’s also important that you commit to a healthy lifestyle after the surgery and have realistic expectations about the results. Maintaining a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine ensures that the results of your mommy makeover stick and you do not gain excessive weight following the procedure.

Many women have trouble losing stubborn fat and getting rid of loose skin in the abdomen area. A tummy tuck can lead to a flatter midsection by removing excess tissues and tightening the internal strength layer at the level of the abdominal muscles.

Pregnancy often leads to excess skin fullness in the thighs, hips, and buttocks. That’s where liposuction comes in. It can tighten and tone these areas and allow for greater confidence in the lower body area.
