Is a tummy tuck part of a mommy makeover

Yes, a tummy tuck is one of the procedures that is traditionally included in a mommy makeover. Breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction are also popular mommy makeover procedures.

The tummy is a problem area for most moms after childbirth, because they often have loose skin as well as a protruding tummy that diet and exercise can’t fix. If the abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy, doing crunches won’t close the gap, only a tummy tuck can help. A tummy tuck also reduces stretch marks below the belly button.
