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.
