Makeovers and tummy tucks have great benefits, but maybe you are not sure about the one to make you feel and look your best. Read on to learn more about each procedure to know how it improves appearance.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

This surgical procedure also called abdominoplasty removes excess skin, fat, and tissue between pubic hair and the belly button. A plastic surgeon trims and sculpts the midsection to restore the abdomen to youthful sleekness. Tummy tucks can improve the appearance of women, especially after pregnancy or after losing much weight.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover combines two or more plastic surgery procedures. These procedures often include a breast lift or augmentation. A tummy tuck may also include liposuction that removes pockets of stubborn fat and other procedures.

A mommy makeover helps restore a woman’s body after post-pregnancy changes because they loosen the skin, stretches the stomach, and breasts sag. All these can affect the way a woman feels about her body. Exercise and dieting can improve some areas but cannot change everything caused by pregnancy.

Dr. Berman customizes mommy makeovers to suit your appearance goals. A mommy makeover helps you to feel yourself again. The procedure restores the body to a pre-pregnancy appearance for clothes to fit better and improve confidence.

Difference Between a Mommy Makeover and Tummy Tuck

Both serve the same purpose, but they have differences.

First is the number of procedures. Mommy makeover comprises at least two procedures, but a tummy tuck is just one procedure.

The second difference is the area a procedure focuses on. A tummy tuck takes place on the abdomen. It is a choice for women interested in removing excess skin and tissue on the midsection. A mommy makeover repairs more body parts depending on the plastic surgery procedures. It suits women who want body reshaping to be more comprehensive. The stomach, breasts, lower body, and face are some of the parts that a mommy makeover can reshape.
