Mommy Makeover Overview

During pregnancy, women gain an average of 30 pounds. This weight is stored in the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, love handles and lower back as fatty tissue. Nursing also affects weight gain. A Mommy Makeover can help you look your best after pregnancy.

After childbirth and nursing, the weakened and separated abdominal muscles, caused by the stretching of the abdomen as the baby grows, become more apparent. The stretching results in stretch marks because of the breakage of the skin collagen, leaving unwanted colored marks around the belly button and abdomen.
