Charlotte NC’s Top Spot For A “Mommy Makeover”
Having a baby is simultaneously one of the most miraculous and one of the most physically demanding experiences a woman can go through. This amazing event results in the precious gift of a child. Unfortunately, for many women it also results in unwanted after-affects to the body, including stretch marks, changes to the figure, loss of tautness in the skin and more.
By virtue of heredity and genetic factors, some women naturally regain their prior appearance and shape. Others are able to diet and exercise their way back. For a significant number of women, however, the changes of pregnancy aren’t reversed by healthy eating, cardio or yoga. The only option these moms have to restore their appearance is cosmetic treatment.
If you’ve been trying to get your pre-baby body back and nothing seems to help, it’s time to stop lamenting the way you feel in your clothes and look in your swimsuit. Dr. Hope Sherie and her skilled team at The Cosmetic Concierge can give you back what you thought was gone for good with a Mommy Makeover.

What is a mommy makeover?
The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks. A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:
- Desired amount of restoration
- Placement of the incisions
- Type of implant used
Possible procedures in a mommy makeover
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Buttock augmentation
- Tummy tuck
- Vaginal rejuvenation

Regain Your Looks, Regain Your Confidence
Many women are struggling with starvation diets and exhausting levels of exercise to regain their shape when the fact is many of the issues they’re targeting simply can’t be changed this way. Problems like sagging skin and loose abdominals require surgical intervention to obtain lasting results. In fact, one of the most common complaints moms express combines these issues — and the surgical solution is abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck.
Abdominoplasty has helped multitudes of moms get back the flat, tight stomach they had before pregnancy — and given countless others a firm, sexy belly for the first time. A tummy tuck is not a one-size-fits-all procedure, though. Here are more details about the types of abdominoplasty you can discuss with the experienced and caring staff of The Cosmetic Concierge:
Types of Tummy Tucks
No two patients start with identical concerns, nor will any two patients share the exact same goals. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the type of tummy tuck that will achieve your desired outcome and create natural-appearing results with the least scarring possible.
Mini-Tummy Tuck: Improves the Lower Belly with Less Extensive Surgery
Are you mainly bothered by a “pooch” or loose skin and stretch marks below the belly button? A mini-tummy tuck may be a good option for you. This technique involves a single incision made just above the pubic mound, through which your cosmetic surgeon will tighten loose muscles (flattening the “pooch”) and remove excess skin to restore a smooth, flat abdominal wall.
The resulting scar from a mini-tummy tuck is a thin, horizontal line that is typically just a few inches long. Benefits of a mini-tummy tuck include a shorter, less involved procedure, a quicker recovery, and a flatter, slimmer lower abdomen that looks better in swimsuits and fitted clothing.
Classic or “Full” Tummy Tuck: Improves the Upper & Lower Abdomen
Are you bothered by roundness and/or excess skin folds above and below your belly button? A full tummy tuck, which addresses the full length of the abdominal wall, may yield the best results. Through a horizontal or U-shaped incision, made above the pubic mound, your cosmetic surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. In some cases, a second incision is made around the navel to address excess skin above the belly button and achieve the most natural looking results.
The resulting scar from a full tummy tuck looks similar to that for a mini-tummy tuck, but will typically be longer, running from hip bone to hip bone. Even so, a full tummy tuck scar can usually be hidden beneath a swimsuit bottom. Benefits of a full tummy tuck include a much flatter, smoother abdomen, reduced appearance of stretch marks, and enhanced comfort in pants and skirts. You will also find that form-fitting dresses and swimsuits have a more flattering fit.
Extended Tummy Tuck: Improves the Upper & Lower Abdomen and Flanks
Have you lost a lot of weight and now have excess, sagging skin hanging around the front half of your body? Or, have you noticed significant laxity in your abdominal muscles following multiple pregnancies? An extended tummy tuck may be the best option to address your concerns. Although it involves a longer incision, an extended tummy tuck removes excess, hanging skin from the front (upper and lower abdomen) and the flanks, as well as tightens the abdominal wall.
The resulting scar from an extended tummy tuck can often be hidden by clothing, including many swimsuits, but it may not be entirely covered for some patients. Even so, many patients consider some visible scarring a worthwhile price for a much improved body shape.
