Breast + Tummy (times 30s - 40s) = Mommy Make-0ver: That's the formula By Dr. Sutton Graham on October 19, 2009

Families cherish their children. Their birth brings us innumerable joys. Pregnancy also effects women's bodies in many ways. Sometimes there are minimal visible after-effects, however women with more pronounced changes consult Dr. Graham to improve their situation.

Breast size, shape and firmness can change. For some women, breasts become much larger and uncomfortable; breast reduction is in order. For others, breasts sag, become much smaller, and loose their firm texture. In these situations clothes don't fit well. It becomes harder to find dresses, summer tops, and bathing suits that flatter the figure. Breast lift (mastopexy) or breast augmentation (implants) can help these situations. The two may be combined, known as augmentation mastopexy. Some of our patients tell us they look better than they did before children! http://www.expertplasticsurgeon.com/html/breast-lift-reduction.html#breast-lift

We are impressed by how trim, toned and fit some celebrities look after bearing children, but we know they have the best help and perhaps PhotoShop enhancement. Normal women's abdomens become stretched by pregnancies, some with prominent stretch marks (known as striae). Metabolism changes and body fat accumulates in different places such as the central / lower tummy and the "love handles" or flanks and iliac regions.

Liposuction addresses localised fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. It can produce great improvement when skin elasticity is good. http://www.expertplasticsurgeon.com/html/body.html#liposuction

Tummy tuck is also known as abdominoplasty - reshaping the abdomen. It is capable of removing stretch marks, removing loose (even overhanging) skin, tightening lax muscle tone, improving posture, and excising fat from the lower abdomen. There are modifications of the tummy tuck in which the incision is smaller and the skin and fat removal are less, for selected patients. http://www.expertplasticsurgeon.com/html/tummy-tuck.html

In conclusion, breast plus tummy (in your thirties or forties) equals mommy make-over. Therefore symbolically, B + T (30 - 40) = MMO
