The mommy makeover procedure is more popular than ever these days. Moms are tending to have children later in life and often times are having more than one child at a time. The typical weight gain for a single baby is anywhere between 25 and 35 lbs. This is only magnified if the moms end up having twins. These major weight fluctuations can cause permanent skin changes as well as permanent changes in the abdominal wall.

Often, the connective tissue that attaches the abdominal wall muscles spreads apart. This separation is a permanent change without surgery and results in moms having the dreaded “pooch” on the lower portion of their abdomen.

The mommy makeover serves to flatten the mother’s abdomen and redevelop her curves. This is usually coupled with liposuction and breast surgery of some kind to further restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure.
