Tummy Tuck vs. Mommy Makeover


A tummy tuck is a procedure in which excess skin and fat is removed from your midsection. During tummy tuck surgery, Phoenix plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey will also tighten abdominal muscles, helping produce both a stronger core and a sleeker, more toned physique. Weakened stomach muscles along with excess fat and skin are common following pregnancy, and if these issues alone are impacting your appearance, a tummy tuck may be the ideal solution. However, if pregnancy has impacted more than your stomach area, a full mommy makeover may be best.

Tummy tuck surgery is often a part of a mommy makeover, but this procedure focuses on all areas of the body impacted by pregnancy and nursing. In addition to a tummy tuck, a mommy makeover may include:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction
  • Buttock augmentation

A mommy makeover allows Dr. Corey to address several areas at once, providing you with the added convenience of achieving all your aesthetic goals in one procedure. What is best for your body will be determined during your initial consultation.
