Why is a Tummy Tuck Often Part of a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


As we’ve discussed before, a mommy makeover is a series of procedures designed to help Denver-area women who have recently given birth and find themselves dissatisfied with the changes pregnancy can cause.

While every mommy makeover is unique and customized to your specific needs, the tummy tuck is often included.

A tummy tuck is designed to tone, tighten and flatten your mid-section while removing excess skin; it’s often combined with liposuction, which removes stubborn deposits of fat from the area. The tummy tuck does its work in large part by tightening the abdominal muscles.

And this is often a good idea after a pregnancy. Child-bearing places a significant strain on your mid-section and especially the muscles. These become loose and stretched after nine months of pregnancy, often leaving women feeling as if their stomachs lack definition and attractiveness.

A tummy tuck can address these concerns. And when combined with other cosmetic procedures as part of a mommy makeover, it can play a huge role in effecting a dramatic change in your overall appearance.
