How do I know if I am good candidate for mommy makeover?

This combination of procedures is the perfect option for women that have experienced significant changes in their bodies after pregnancy. The most common areas of these changes are the breasts, abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

The breasts enlarge during pregnancy given to an increase of the size of the mammary glands. So it is normal to see a difference in this area before and after giving birth.

The abdomen also presents radical changes while a woman is pregnant, the belly increases in size so the skin stretches, and it’s not easy to return it to the same size and shape after pregnancy.

As for the buttocks, some women notice a change on its volume and firmness.

So this procedure is for those mommies that seek to recover their original figure after having their child.
