After pregnancy, a woman can start to feel like a full-length mirror has become her worst enemy. The many physical changes that childbirth and breastfeeding enact on the body may be demoralizing and hard on one’s self-esteem. For these women, we offer the Mommy Makeover package, a combination of cosmetic procedures. One option for inclusion in this package is the tummy tuck.

As a pregnant woman’s abdomen grows, the skin of the abdomen will grow with it, and the muscles of the abdomen will stretch and separate. Once the baby has been delivered, the skin often stays in this enlarged state, and the muscles continue to be loose and stretched.

During a tummy tuck as part of a Mommy Makeover package, these issues are corrected, and the stomach becomes tight and smooth once again.

Board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely is available to discuss and plan out your Mommy Makeover package during a consultation. To arrange a consultation, contact us today.
