Mommy Makeover: A Procedure Customized Just for You

As a mother of five children, Dr. Hutchinson understands the changes a woman’s body undergoes with pregnancy. She also understands that each pregnancy is different and that each patient is unique. When you come into our office for a consultation, she will discuss all the different surgical options available and will design a unique solution tailored specifically for you. She will guide you to a well-informed decision on how to proceed in order to get the best and most natural results possible for you.

What Can a Mommy Makeover Improve?

  • Loose, flabby, or sagging skin on the abdomen
  • Separated or weak abdominal muscles
  • Hard-to-lose fat left over from pregnancy
  • Drooping breasts that have lost volume
  • Changes in body shape and contour due to prior pregnancy

A Mother’s Perspective

“Having a baby is one of the most wonderful experiences a woman can have. As a mother myself, I can attest to the many joys of having children, but also to some of its less desirable effects on the body. With pregnancy, your body undergoes many changes and often these cannot be reversed no matter how much you exercise and diet. Many parts of your body are affected by pregnancy, especially your breasts, belly, flanks, hips, and skin. Your breasts may droop and sometimes become smaller or larger, or the nipple position may change. The shape is usually not the same as it was before the baby.

Your abdominal muscles may become lax and stretched out, or the skin may sag because of stretch marks. Your belly and thighs may also accumulate fat that wasn’t there before the pregnancy. These post-maternity changes can be subtle or quite dramatic and can evolve over time. Whether you are a new mom or have grown children, if some of these changes bother you, we can improve them and bring you closer to your pre-baby self. Often it is possible to combine these procedures in one operative session, which minimizes the downtime you need to get your body back to how it was before the baby. Having had children myself, I have personally experienced the physical and psychological changes that accompany childbearing, and I am best able to design an individualized treatment plan for you.”

Breast Beauty After Baby

Pregnancy and breastfeeding combine to change the shape and size of your breasts, and often these changes are not reversible. Surgery of the breasts, including breast lift (mastopexy), breast augmentation, and breast reduction can greatly improve the appearance of your post baby breasts. Sometimes the breast lift and augmentation need to be performed together in order to achieve optimal results.

If the nipple position is too low, this too can be improved with either a breast lift or reduction, as necessary. Dr. Hutchinson will spend time discussing all of these procedures and which ones are right for you. She specializes in short scar or minimal incision types of procedures, which often significantly reduce the number and length of scars. This will give you the least noticeable and most well hidden scars.

I had a mommy makeover (breast lift with implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction) with Dr. Hutchinson, and the results exceeded all my expectations. I love my new body, I can’t believe she made me look this great. She’s an extremely talented, caring, and knowledgeable plastic surgeon. She is an outstanding doctor and I have already recommended her to my family and friends.


Belly Beauty After Baby

The abdominal muscles and skin are significantly affected by pregnancy because they are stretched out by the baby as well as by the additional weight you gain while pregnant and nursing. After delivery, regardless of how much you diet and exercise, there may be residual changes in your tummy. You may notice excess skin or stretch marks, extra fat in the abdomen or thighs, or a loss of your shape with widening of your waistline.

There are numerous surgical options available to correct these changes, including iposuction, abdominoplasty, and modified or mini abdominoplasty. Dr. Hutchinson will take the time to discuss which of these procedures are right for your specific needs. She will use the smallest incisions necessary to achieve an optimal result and will formulate an operative plan that best suits your body and your wishes.
