Although pregnancy can be one of life’s greatest gifts, many women find that after their children are born it can be difficult to get their bodies back into shape. Stretch marks, breast sag, and excess fat left in many body areas are common problems after pregnancy – and they can often be addressed with a Mommy Makeover. Dr. Charles Perry, our board-certified plastic surgeon, offers a variety of body contouring procedures that can help create a beautiful, natural-looking result.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover can address a variety of issues at once, restoring a number of body areas to their pre-pregnancy appearance. Some of the benefits of a Mommy Makeover include:
- Reduction or sagginess in the breasts
- Reduction of fat in virtually any area of the body
- Reduction of loose, hanging skin in the midsection
- Tightened abdominal muscles for a more toned-looking stomach
Mommy Makeover Procedures
One of the most requested procedures at Chrysalis Cosmetics, a Mommy Makeover encompasses a number of plastic surgery options for a more complete rejuvenation. Areas with the most stretch marks and excess skin are typically the ones patients like to target first. Mommy Makeover procedures include:
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) addresses the midsection. During pregnancy, the uterus presses onto the muscles of the abdominal wall, pulling them apart and often permanently separating them. A tummy tuck will tighten the abdominal muscles and eliminate excess skin for a flatter stomach.

Liposuction can remove excess fat that has gathered in virtually any area of the body, including the thighs, love handles, hips, buttocks, arms, breasts, and back. Dr. Charles Perry can use liposuction to reduce these stubborn areas of fat that are often resistant to diet and exercise.

One of the most common problems women face after pregnancy is sagginess and loose skin in the breasts. A breast lift will eliminate the excess skin and tighten the breast area, giving them a “perkier,” more youthful appearance. For an even greater rejuvenation of the breasts, Dr. Charles Perry also offers breast augmentation with implants, providing you with a larger breast size and a bustline more proportionate to your body frame.
