In order to bring new life into this world, a woman’s body must go through some significant changes. Unfortunately, some women have trouble recapturing their pre-pregnancy body shape and physical characteristics once these changes occur, even when they stick to a strict diet and exercise regimen. These are the women who visit Strax Aesthetics in Lauderhill, Florida, near Miami, to have a mommy makeover.

What Body Changes Occur During Pregnancy and How Are They Addressed with a Mommy Makeover?

Throughout pregnancy, the breasts and abdomen stretch. A mommy makeover has several contouring procedures that are specifically designed to tackle the issues related to physical changes following pregnancy. Some of the cosmetic and surgical procedures frequently requested include tummy lifts, thigh lifts, breast lifts, hair removal, skin restoration, and vaginal rejuvenation procedures.

Typical body changes experienced during pregnancy and childbirth include:

  • Excess abdominal skin.
  • Weight gain.
  • An enlarged abdomen due to overstretched abdominal muscles.
  • Smaller breasts or larger breasts.
  • Breasts that feel less firm.
  • Saggy Breast
  • Vaginal looseness, due to the expansion that occurred during childbirth.

Stretch marks: The permanently damaged skin caused by ruptured dermal elastic fibers as the skin is stretched by pregnancy or significant weight fluctuation results in depressed streaks on the skin surface. In many instances, these marks can be partially, and in some instances completely removed during breast and abdominoplasty surgeries.

Typically, this type of makeover consists of procedures focusing on the abdomen and the breasts; however, additional procedures can be added as requested

If your breasts sag and your nipples point towards the floor, you should consider a breast lift. Also, if your breasts are not as firm as they used to be, you may consider breast augmentation.

Makeover procedure options include:

  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).


  • Labiaplasty (vaginal rejuvenation).
  • Rhytidectomy (face lift).
  • Breast augmentation (breast implant surgery).
  • Reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction).
  • Mastopexy (breast lift).
  • Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift)
  • Thighplasty (thigh lift).
  • Laser skin rejuvenation.

Noninvasive facial rejuvenation techniques.

Some women may experience a hormone imbalance after childbirth, which can lead to excessive hair growth on the face or the body. At Strax Aesthetics, the doctors also perform professional laser hair removal procedures.
