Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is used to remove loose and sagging skin from the midsection. Depending on the needs of the individual, tummy tuck surgery may also be used to remove stubborn fat deposits and tighten abdominal muscles that have become separated.
Abdominoplasty is commonly included in mommy makeover surgeries as it addresses several issues related to pregnancy. Loose skin around the abdomen, diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits, stretch marks, and similar cosmetic concerns can be corrected through tummy tuck surgery. So too can diastasis recti, the medical name for separated abdominal muscles, which is a fairly common result of pregnancy.
Each mommy makeover procedure is unique and not all will include abdominoplasty. During your consultation, Dr. Chatson will listen to your goals, carefully assess the areas of your body you are most concerned with, and help you determine which procedures could best be combined to produce the look you desire.
Procedures That May be Included in a Mommy Makeover
In addition to abdominoplasty, procedures that are commonly part of mommy makeover surgery include:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Thigh Lift
- Butt Lift
During some mommy makeover procedures, several body and breast techniques are incorporated to address multiple areas of concern. Others may require only one or two procedures to achieve optimal results. Dr. Chatson honors the unique needs and desires of each patient and will work directly with you to determine which options are right for your procedure.
