What are my alternatives to a Mommy Makeover? Mommy makeover surgery can be expensive. Most patients seek out surgery only after they have tried multiple diet regimens and medications. Exercise, even with a personal trainer, has been equally disappointing. Many have lost significant weight and toned flabby muscles to no avail. While they are healthier and have attained an improved quality of life, their problems persist. The empty, sagging breasts drained by childbirth and breastfeeding still need the additional volume of implants. The hanging tummy skin and distended abdominal wall still require surgical tightening. While dedicated core exercise can achieve significant abdominal tightening, it cannot remove stretch marks, flatten muscular separations, or shrink excessive drooping skin. Unfortunately, nothing else can achieve the dramatic results seen with a well-performed mommy makeover surgery.
