Becoming a mother is one of life’s greatest gifts. However, getting back your pre-pregnancy body can be challenging. A mommy makeover helps new mothers rejuvenate their breasts and bodies after the physical challenges of pregnancy. Depending on your unique physical needs and aesthetic goals, your mommy makeover might include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, buttock augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and/or breast augmentation.
Dr. DelMauro spends time getting to know each patient’s aesthetic goals and develops a personalized plan for each patient’s mommy makeover surgery.
