Have you heard of the Mommy Makeover? This combination of surgical procedures is getting more popular every day. Each patient’s Mommy Makeover package is different and customized to restore her post-pregnancy body to its previous state. Many packages include the tummy tuck.
As a baby grows in a woman’s uterus, the uterus also grows to compensate. This has the unfortunate side effect of stretching the abdominal muscles apart and weakening the abdominal wall. Muscle tissue sags and bulges, the skin of the stomach stretches, and excess fatty tissue forms in the region.
This makes the abdomen look out of shape by creating a “pooch” of flab, along with stretch marks in the skin. To restore the abdominal wall, trim away excess skin, remove stretch marks, and suction out excess fatty tissue, we offer the tummy tuck as an option for your Mommy Makeover package.
During a consultation at our office, you’ll learn more about the tummy tuck and customize your Mommy Makeover package. Set up a consultation – contact our office today. Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin, two board-certified Richmond, VA plastic surgeons, have a wealth of experience with post-pregnancy procedures.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a method of recontouring the abdomen to make it look fit, toned, and tight. This procedure is quite effective and is followed by a period of tummy tuck recovery.
Tummy tuck surgery, like the majority of plastic surgery procedures, features tissue alteration. The body’s natural response to this type of tissue alteration is swelling and bruising, and patients may also feel a measure of post-surgical discomfort. In order to deal with these issues during your tummy tuck recovery, your doctor will provide various solutions, including prescriptions for medication.

Excess belly fat accumulates over the years. Often, we’re not conscious of this change until it has become a problem. Buying a gym membership and jumping onto the latest diet trend may sound promising, but sometimes a flabby stomach just won’t go away, no matter how hard you try to get rid of it. To achieve real, effective change, consider an abdominoplasty.
The main incision for your abdominoplasty surgery is made horizontally across the abdomen, from one hipbone to the other, typically at the pubic hairline. Once this incision is created, the plastic surgeon will be free to alter the underlying tissues of the area, including fat and muscle.
