“Mommy Makeover Surgery” is a popular term used to describe a combination of procedures that can help rejuvenate the female body after childbearing.
After pregnancy, breasts change in shape and volume, and the abdomen can be left with stretch marks and excess skin. These are natural changes that can occur in all women. Breast lifts (mastopexy) with or without breast augmentation and tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) can effectively address both areas of concern.
At the time of your consultation, Dr. Li will analyze your body in detail and discuss whether Mommy Makeover Surgery is a good option for you.
