Am I a candidate for Mommy Makeover/Weight Loss Makeover?

July 25th, 2023

Tummy Tuck surgery

The cornerstone of the Mommy Makeover is an abdominoplasty, or more commonly called a Tummy Tuck. Pregnancy is not the only cause for women seeking a tummy tightening surgery and breast restoration surgery combo. General weight fluctuations also contribute to excess belly fat/skin, which is commonly accompanied by stretched or laxity of the skin and muscles. In addition, Augmentation for fuller breasts or Breast Lift Surgery is often requested due to weight loss following pregnancy/nursing or as a simple result of a weight-loss program.

In both cases, an office consultation is complimentary and is a good first step to discuss all your options. Best results are obtained when ideal weight is reached before cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Bashioum’s Patient Loves Tummy Tuck

June 17th, 2013

 Teri writes:  I am now 6 months from my abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery procedure. After  losing 112 pounds,  I had quite a bit of extra skin and wanted a change. Dr. Bashioum and his staff took care of this for me. He tightened up the ‘lazy’ muscles and tightened up the skin.  It looks great!  I would recommend Dr. Bashioum to everyone. He and all of the staff did a great job!

Dr. Bashioum replies:  Thank you for your kind comments, Teri. Approximately 110,000 women choose to have tummy nipntucks in the US each year, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).  

Many of those patients opt for this surgery as part of the mommy make-over following pregnancy, while others have lost a significant amount of weight like Teri has done before considering surgery. Abdominoplasty is an effective procedure to flatten the tummy and reduce any excess sagging skin (frequently called muffin top) to give the abdomen a more trim appearance. I find that patient satisfaction is extremely high following this kind of surgery.
