Mommy Makeover

The phrase “Mommy Makeover” is usually used to refer to a procedure that includes a breast enhancement and a tummy tuck. It is commonly requested after having had children. Breastfeeding history makes the breast enhancement more likely to be needed. Multiple pregnancies or history of large babies and c-sections makes the tummy tuck more likely to be needed.

However, many women undergo this combination of surgeries even if they’ve never had children. In fact, men sometimes do as well (gynecomastia breast reduction and tummy tuck). Dr. Chen will meet with you to discuss the specific procedure needed to reach your desired outcome based on your anatomy and medical history.
