What is a Mommy Makeover? Dr. James Chappell Describes the Process

Mommy Makeover After having kids, achieving your pre-pregnancy body can be extremely difficult. This is because the muscles in your midsection and breasts become loose and cause the skin to lose elasticity during pregnancy. Dieting and exercising are not always enough to get your body back to its desired state, which is why many mothers chose to get a Mommy Makeover after pregnancy. What is a Mommy Makeover? A Mommy Makeover is the process of enhancing and restoring a woman’s body post-pregnancy, or simply after significant weight loss. It typically includes the choice to combine a mix of the following procedures:

  • Breast Lift- Due to breastfeeding, breasts can sag and lose elasticity after childbirth, causing the desire for women to undergo a breast lift. A breast lift can correct the volume in your breasts, making them perkier and firmer, restoring their youthful feminine
  • Breast Augmentation- This procedure is done to increase the size and change the shape, of a woman’s breasts using implants. Implants are available in a variety of different sizes and materials to give the client the look they
  • Tummy Tuck- A tummy tuck corrects the loose, sagging skin and muscles of your abdomen. Sutures are used to tighten and firm the muscles of the abdominal wall. The excess fat of the abdomen is removed for a more youthful look.
  • Liposuction- A technique in cosmetic surgery used to remove excess fat under the skin with suction. Liposuction is perfect to target those stubborn areas of fat that remain after pregnancy.
  • Coolsculpting- Coolsculpting is a non-surgical and natural solution to remove unwanted fat using fat freezing technology that aims at trouble spots. Dr. Chappell is one of the few plastic surgeons in Annapolis to offer this procedure.
