Giving birth is one of the most challenging things to do in life. It’s an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling experience, giving you a child you will love forever. Unfortunately, being pregnant takes its toll on your body. Lots of physical changes happen, and most women put on weight as a result. This is perfectly natural, but the problem is your skin stretches, so you end up with loose skin around your stomach, usually accompanied by stubborn belly fat. A Mommy Makeover can help you get your pre-pregnancy body back when diet and exercise just won’t cut it.
Mommy Makeover Overview
What is a Mommy Makeover? For all intents and purposes, it’s a procedure aimed at new moms who are struggling with their appearance after giving birth. You may have sagging breasts, excess fat/skin, and a stomach pooch. As a result, your confidence may decline and you no longer feel like the same woman you were before being pregnant.
Contrary to what some may think, Mommy Makeovers don’t consist of any singular particular surgery. Instead, it brings together a combination of procedures to treat these different problems. Typically, Dr. Brenman will provide:
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction
- Arm lift
- Body lift
- Thigh lift
- Non-surgical treatments
You may undergo any combination of these procedures – it depends on each candidate. This is a personal thing, so each Mommy Makeover is designed for the candidate. It’s all about helping you feel more confident by dealing with any lingering issues post-pregnancy.
Benefits of Mommy Makeover
A Mommy Makeover can change your life. After giving birth, it’s common for new moms to feel depressed and anxious. You’ve put on weight, and all of your efforts at being healthy are failing. Or, you’ve lost a lot of weight, but certain things just aren’t improving. With a Mommy Makeover, you can target these problem areas and let yourself see impressive results. You’ll feel a lot younger and look more like your old self. The impact this has on your mental health & well-being is astronomical!
Furthermore, the effects of a Mommy Makeover are designed to be long-lasting. Breast lifts and augmentations leave you with permanently altered breasts that defy gravity. Any procedure involving body sculpting and fat removal will last for as long as you let it. By this we mean, as long as you continue to be healthy, you won’t see a reversal of the procedures.

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The best candidates are healthy mothers that have already tried to lose weight and seen some results. You should also have finished breastfeeding for six months and have no plans of expanding your family in the future. It’s an extensive procedure, so it might not suit everyone. If you fall under this description, then you will be a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover – particularly if you’re suffering from confidence issues as a result of your post-pregnancy body.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
