What Type Of Mommy Makeover Procedures Do I Need?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Looking into the mommy makeover. I am 35 years old and I have five kids. Exercise is not gonna get it done, I can see that now. I wanna be ready for this summer. I have attached some pictures of my body so you can determine what needs to be done.

A: Thank you for sending your pictures. They give me a clear idea as to the exact Mommy Makeover procedures you need. From an abdominal standpoint, you need a full tummy tuck with flank liposuction. You have excess abdominal skin that is loose and hanging over your waistline. Full ness from fat extends around your waistline into your back. From a breast standpoint, you need implants with a vertical breast lift. Your breasts have lost substantial volume and are saggy (ptois) with the nipples hanging below the lower breast crease.

Both breast and abdominal reshaping procedures can be done during the same surgery, hence the derivation of the Mommy Makeover name. In a single operation, often lasting 3 to 5 hours depending on what is being exactly done, a women’s body can be very positively changed.
