Tummy Tuck or Mommy Makeover: Which One’s Right for You?

Mommy Makeover

Many women find that their bodies change over time, particularly after pregnancy. The stomach is often the epicenter for these changes, where skin can become stretched and loose and stubborn deposits of fat can linger. Some women also experience diastasis recti, a separation of the abdominal muscles which can result in a permanent paunch.

A tummy tuck can address these concerns to improve abdominal contours and repair muscles, but some women may benefit from a more comprehensive set of plastic surgery procedures. So how can you choose whether a tummy tuck or a mommy makeover is the right procedure for you?

The Difference between a Tummy Tuck and Mommy Makeover

A tummy tuck is a popular plastic surgery procedure that focuses on improving the stomach’s appearance. During a tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon will remove any loosen stomach skin, tighten abdominal muscle and target fat using liposuction. The end result is a flatter, more toned tummy.

A mommy makeover is a customizable combination of procedures designed to correct the physical changes that can occur as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

A mommy makeover typically includes a tummy tuck, but can also include breast augmentation and/or breast lift as well as liposuction.

Discuss Your Goals with Dr. Wooten

You likely have a clear idea of what you’d like your figure to look like after surgery. By sharing your goals with Dr. Wooten during your initial consultation, she will be able to ascertain which procedures will best help you to rejuvenate your appearance and attain the look you desire.

Women who are primarily concerned with their abdominal appearance may be good candidates for a tummy tuck while others who’d like to enhance breast shape or volume and target trouble spots of fat on the body may opt for a mommy makeover.
