3 Popular Procedures to Choose From for Your Mommy Makeover

Nearly 3.7 million babies are born each year in the United States, which means millions of women are undergoing serious changes in their lives — and in their bodies. For your part, you love the family you’ve built, but you’re not as thrilled with the results in your body. And you wouldn’t mind hitting the reset button.

If this is the case, it might be time to explore a mommy makeover, which is designed to get you back to your pre-baby body, maybe even with a few upgrades.

At McHugh Plastic Surgery. Dr. Thomas McHugh has performed scores of mommy makeovers and, while these procedures can vary, many women choose the following three options.

1. Lifting those breasts back up

One of the most common side effects of having children are changes in the breasts, especially if you breastfed. During pregnancy, you gained weight which may have stretched out your breasts. Then, when you breastfeed, your breasts swelled with milk over and over, which can further stretch the support tissues.

As a result, many women find that their breasts droop and sag after having children.

If this is what happened to you, we can move your breasts back up on your chest with a breast lift. This procedure is so effective that it ranks number 4 in cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States.

2. Tightening that tummy

The effect that pregnancy can have on your abdomen is pretty obvious — in just nine short months, your stomach stretches to accommodate a baby. And if your tummy went through this process more than once, the skin in this area may not be as taut as it once was.


To address this common issue, we can perform a tummy tuck to remove excess tissue around your abdomen and reconnect separated abdominal muscles (if applicable).

3. Removing leftover fat

When you gain weight during pregnancy, it doesn't always come off afterward. Even if your weight gets back to within pre-pregnancy ranges, your fat may have redistributed itself, leaving you with more lumps and bumps around certain areas, such as your belly, buttocks, and/or thighs.

To tackle these unwelcome post-pregnancy deposits of fat that stubbornly resist diet and exercise, we can turn to body-shaping techniques like liposuction. This fat-reduction technique is the number one cosmetic surgery performed in the US, which means it delivers great results.

Ultimately, what you want to include in your mommy makeover is up to you — just be sure that you’re done with family building before we get started. Whether you choose one procedure or a combination, we’re confident that we can help you meet your goals.

To figure out which mommy makeover services are right for your goals and lifestyle, we invite you to contact our office in The Woodlands, Texas, to schedule a consultation.
