Mommy Makeover

The “Mommy Makeover” can help St. Louis moms regain their pre-pregnancy shape and self-confidence. During pregnancy, skin and muscles of the abdomen expand with weight gain, and breasts enlarge in preparation for breastfeeding. After childbirth and nursing, some mothers feel self-conscious about their sagging abdomen, excess fatty deposits, or breasts that lack volume and contour. Many discover that diet and exercise do not adequately address these post-pregnancy concerns.

At West County Plastic Surgeons, board-certified plastic surgeons Marissa Tenenbaum, MD, and Terry Myckatyn, MD, have the training and experience to help women regain their pre-pregnancy shape through the use of a select group of procedures commonly referred to as the “Mommy Makeover.” It typically combines one or more of the following surgical procedures to help women achieve their unique goals:

Breast Enlargement (Augmentation) 

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast Reduction

Laser Bra (Laser-Assisted Breast Reduction) 

Liposuction

Labia Reduction (Labiaplasty) 

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Why Choose Us?

Although the typical Mommy Makeover procedures are intended to address the needs of women who have had one or more pregnancy, women without children may benefit as well, particularly if they have lost a significant amount of weight. It is important to remember that a Mommy Makeover differs from bariatric surgery or other weight-loss procedures; instead of helping women lose weight, it can improve their overall shape and contour.

St. Louis cosmetic surgeons Dr. Tenenbaum and Dr. Myckatyn are trained in all areas of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. They offer patients the expertise of Washington University Physicians and access to the latest technological advances, while providing a comfortable, personalized experience in a spa-like setting.
