What is A Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover procedure is designed to reverse the two most common changes seen with childbearing – a loose protruding belly
and empty sagging shapeless breasts. The belly can be corrected by either liposuction alone or more commonly a Tummy Tuck while the breasts are restored via breast implants and / or a breast lift. Dr. Shienbaum frequently combines and individually customizes these procedures according to your precise needs. This affords the convenience of a single surgery and recovery for patients in the greater Tampa, Florida area.
