“Following one of the most magical and joyful times in your life, the birth of your children, women are often distressed about the changes that occur with their shape. Breasts may sag, the areolas enlarge, the abdomen expands, causing the muscles to separate and the skin to tear and create stretch marks. Hips can widen, which can affect a woman’s self confidence. Being able to restore, or even improve upon a woman’s pre-pregnancy shape is one of the most rewarding procedures I do.”

The ideal “Mommy Makeover” involves a combination of procedures to improve the contour of the breasts as well as the body, consisting of the waist, hips, abdomen, and thighs. Dr. Yager waits at least three months after new mothers have finished breast feeding to perform a “Mommy Makeover” to accurately measure the final size of the breast.
If you are happy with your breast size but feel that your breasts are sagging, a breast lift is the best option. If your breasts are sagging and smaller than you would like, breast augmentation using an implant can correct minor sagging. If your breasts are very saggy and deflated, additional volume is needed in addition to skin removal. In this case, a breast lift with an implant (or APEX) may be done at the same time.
Some women notice a significant increase in breast size after having children, or have always felt that their breasts were too large. A breast reduction can be performed to lift and reposition breast tissue into a more aesthetically pleasing shape and size. The nipple areolar complex will also be reduced during this operation.
For the abdomen, if your muscles are taut and your skin has retained elasticity, liposuction may be the best option to reduce fat deposits in the upper and lower abdomen. If the problem is loose, saggy skin with stretchmarks and/or muscle laxity, a tummy tuck may be more appropriate. The “Mommy Makeover” is one of the most popular procedures we offer. Dr. Yager is a highly trained and efficient surgeon, which allows him to decrease the amount of time and anesthesia needed, which in turn, lowers your risk from surgery. Combining multiple procedures also allows us to offer even more affordable customized packages.
