Combining Procedures for the Best Mommy Makeover For Your Body

When you hear the words “mommy makeover,” it’s easy to imagine a single miraculous procedure that can restore your youthful, pre-baby body. But this cosmetic treatment actually refers to a combination of aesthetic or surgical cosmetic techniques that address the individual changes pregnancy can cause.

Whether you’re looking for solutions to drooping breasts, excess body fat, a sagging tummy, or vaginal changes, Jack Hensel, Jr., MD, at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center in Charleston and Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, can help you combine the best cosmetic procedures available to create the perfect mommy makeover.

The effects of childbirth on the body

Pregnancy and childbirth cause physical changes in your body that make your muscles separate and your skin stretch so you can carry a growing baby and prepare for delivery. On top of these physical changes, your hormones are also affected. These hormonal changes last throughout your pregnancy and continue after childbirth, directly impacting your skin’s elasticity.

If you’ve had a baby, you know firsthand that these changes can affect your abdominal muscle tone and leave you with pockets of unwanted fat that are impossible to lose. Pregnancy also causes many women to experience significant nipple changes, sagginess, and a loss in breast volume. It’s even common to have changes in the shape of your genitals.

Unfortunately, your skin, muscles, and tissue never completely return to normal after you have a baby. But, a mommy makeover with Dr. Hensel can help you love your body again.

Creating the perfect mommy makeover

Dr. Hensel understands the importance of looking and feeling your best, especially when you’re a mother. His solution is to combine multiple cosmetic treatments to restore your appearance during a single mommy makeover procedure. That way, you can get better overall results, save more, and have one recovery period instead of several. Some of Dr. Hensel’s most popular treatments after pregnancy include:

Tummy tuck

This procedure removes excess fat, eliminates stretch marks, and brings your abdominal muscles back together.

Lower body lift

This procedure focuses on reshaping your thighs, hips, buttocks, and lower abdomen.


This procedure removes unwanted fat from various areas of your body, like your tummy and thighs.

Breast lift

This procedure restores perkiness by firming up breast tissue, removing excess skin, and repositioning your nipples.

Breast augmentation

This procedure adds volume and enhances their shape with saline or silicone implants.

Body fat transfers

This procedure restores volume to saggy or flat spots, such as your buttocks, using fat harvested from other areas of your body.


This procedure reshapes the labia minora portion of your genitals.

Dr. Hensel also offers nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, such as SmartLipo® and Venus Freeze™ for body contouring.

During your consultation, Dr. Hensel will discuss what you’d like to change about your appearance, the options available to help you reach your goals, and which combination of treatments will offer the best results.
