Becoming a mother is an incredibly rewarding experience, but it also leads to some unwanted changes in the body. The combined effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding often lead to loss of volume from the breasts, loss of abdominal tone, and redundant skin. Dr. Vial provides a highly personalized mommy makeover in Bend to ease these effects and reintroduce you to your pre-pregnancy shape.

What is a mommy makeover?

Mommy makeover is the name given to a combination of post-pregnancy cosmetic procedures performed as a single operation. The procedures often include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift), and/or augmentation mastopexy (lifting the breasts and making them larger). The primary goal is to mitigate the effects of pregnancy in one procedure, allowing you to undergo a single recovery process. As such, a mommy makeover is more cost- and time-effective than individual surgeries.
