Dr. Christopher Killingsworth from Atlanta Aesthetics answers a reader’s question about mommy makeovers.
Q: What makes a woman a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
A: Women experience a number of changes to their bodies after childbirth. They may notice a loss of fullness to their breasts and a change in shape. Also, the stomach may develop loose skin and an abdominal bulge that exercise just will not help. A good candidate for a “mommy makeover” experiences these changes and wants to restore her breasts and abdomen to their pre-baby condition. She needs to be relatively close to her goal weight, in good health and ready to put herself first for a short time after the procedure.
