Has pregnancy left you with dramatic changes to your abdomen? After having children, many women feel like they cannot regain their pre-baby figure no matter how hard they try. A mommy makeover, including a tummy tuck, can restore a flatter abdomen. If you feel unhappy with the belly you see after pregnancy, a tummy tuck can help. 

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The body changes in many ways during and after pregnancy. You may find that your breasts have lost volume, you have new accumulations of stubborn fat, and your abdominal area sags and looks shapeless. A mommy makeover is a customized procedure to address all your post-pregnancy concerns. It can include several procedures, including a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty.

Is a Tummy Tuck Part of a Mommy Makeover?

The abdominal area experiences some of the most dramatic changes during pregnancy. This often results in loose skin and pockets of belly fat. It can also cause the abdominal muscles to separate, a problem that can only be repaired with surgery. A mommy makeover will usually include a tummy tuck to restore this problematic area to a flatter, tighter appearance. 

How Does a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Work?

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty uses an incision hidden below the bikini line to remove and tighten the skin. Dr. Stile will remove excess skin and fat. He may use liposuction to sculpt and shape the entire Flank and Bra areas. He will repair the abdominal muscles, restoring a tighter core and giving you a flatter, firmer belly. As part of a mommy makeover, a tummy tuck is vital in reclaiming your pre-baby shape. 

What is Recovery Like After a Tummy Tuck?

You will have a compression garment to reduce swelling after the procedure. You will usually need someone to help you with basic tasks for a day or two. Most people need about two weeks before returning to work and other activities. You should wait six weeks or more before resuming more strenuous activities. 


Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you want to improve the appearance of your abdomen after pregnancy or weight loss. Ideal candidates are in good health with reasonable expectations. You may not be a good candidate if you plan to become pregnant again in the future since this will undo many of your results. 

How Much Does A Tummy Tuck Cost?

The average cost of a tummy tuck will vary according to several factors:

  • Your provider
  • Your location
  • The complexity of your procedure
  • Whether your tummy tuck is part of a mommy makeover. 

On average, abdominoplasty can cost between $3,000 and $12,000. Prices listed in various locations may not include surgical fees, anesthesia, or other expenses.
