Mommy Makeover


What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Motherhood changes the body in ways that may be resistant to diet and exercise. Pregnancy and nursing can also alter breast shape, symmetry, and volume, further contributing to an overall loose, saggy, and undefined appearance. If you have found your body altered in ways you are uncomfortable with after having children, Chandler plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey can help. Call us at 480-767-7700 to schedule a consultation and learn more.

Tummy Tuck and Mommy Makeover Surgery

Pregnancy can have a tremendous impact on the strength and tone of abdominal muscles. Even women who are athletic and continue to exercise throughout pregnancy may experience a separation of abdominal muscles as the uterus expands. In fact nearly 70% of women experience abdominal separation during pregnancy – and no amount of core strengthening exercises will be fully effective at reconnecting these muscles after the baby is born.

How Pregnancy Impacts Abdominal Strength

During pregnancy, abdominal muscles will stretch in order to accommodate the growing baby. For some women, these muscles will retract over a period of time following childbirth. Many others can develop diastasis recti, a condition in which abdominal muscles separate, creating a loose and unflattering appearance and increasing medical risks for hernias and lower back pain.

Breast Augmentation and Breastfeeding

Breast augmentation does not always interfere with breastfeeding, but certain breast enhancement options can increase your risk of complications. During your initial consultation with breast augmentation surgeon Dr. John Corey, be sure to honestly discuss your future plans for children, even if those plans are undecided. This will allow Dr. Corey to customize your breast augmentation procedure to help guard against breastfeeding complications.

Liposuction and Mommy Makeover

During pregnancy, it is not uncommon for your body to accumulate fat in the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. Depending on weight gain during your pregnancy, you may also accumulate fat in the back, arms, neck and face.

Following pregnancy, much of this weight can be removed through a regular exercise routine and a healthy diet, but many women find that stubborn deposits of fat will not respond to these methods.

Breast Augmentation and Other Procedures

For many women in and around Mesa, breast augmentation alone can produce the desired results. However, every woman has different needs, and no single procedure is ideal to address each of these concerns, which is why board-certified breast surgeon Dr. John Corey may discuss other procedures in addition to breast augmentation during your initial consultation.
