Giving birth can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life. Unfortunately, pregnancy and breast-feeding often result in unwanted changes in a woman’s body, such as drooping breasts, enlarged areolas, a straighter waist, pockets of fat in the abdomen, stretch marks, and a sagging tummy that no amount of exercise and dieting seems to fix. Through a Mommy Makeover, Dr. Orseck has designed procedures specifically for new mothers who would like to restore their pre-pregnancy figures.
What issues does a mommy makeover procedure fix?
Mommy makeover procedures usually involve a number of procedures, either performed together in one operation, or over a series of appointments. Mommy Makeover candidates typically include mothers who are experiencing:
- Extra skin and fat in the breasts causing a sagging or drooping appearance
- Excess fat and skin in the abdominal region
- Stubborn fat deposits in virtually any area of the body
- Areas of stretch marks

What procedures are involved in a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is actually a term that represents three or four different surgical procedures whose goal is to reverse the effects on the body caused by pregnancy and childbirth. The procedures involved are dictated by the conditions of each individual patient. Dr. Orseck will discuss each procedure with you at your initial consultation and determine if your individual needs can best be met with a combination of procedures at one time, or spread out over a series of appointments. Procedures that can be part of a Mommy Makeover include:
Everyone has stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away no matter how much you exercise. This can be especially true after the weight gain and loss of pregnancy. Dr. Orseck uses advanced liposuction techniques, including Smart Lipo that have proven safe and effective at getting rid of excess fat and restoring your natural curves. Learn More
Pregnancy and breastfeeding stretch the skin and muscles in the breasts. Breastfeeding can reduce volume. The result is sagging breasts, sometimes with the nipples pointing downward. A breast lift brings the breasts back up to their former, higher position. Learn More
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Volume loss is a major complaint of women after childbirth and breastfeeding. While a breast lift can bring the breasts back up, augmentation can replace lost volume. Breast Augmentation is a popular plastic surgery procedure as a part of a Mommy Makeover for women who would like to restore lost volume in the breasts for a more curvaceous, sensual appearance.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
A stomach pooch is pretty standard after childbirth. The muscles and skin have been stretched to such a degree that they often cannot return to their former degree of tautness. A tummy tuck tightens this area back up. Learn More
Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
Many times after childbirth mothers appear exhausted, Magnolia Plastic Surgery offer a number of injectable facial rejuvenation options can do wonders for eliminating the appearance of exhaustion and aging.

Mommy Makeover Recovery
Patients need to understand a mommy makeover involves various surgeries, so recovery is not easy or immediate. This needs to be considered because you’ll have at least one child to attend to during your recovery. For the first week or two, you’ll need to plan on doing little, so plan on having somebody who is able to assist through this time.
