Mommy Makeover procedures have become one of the most popular rejuvenation treatments for young women today. While having a child brings happiness to you and those around you, the changes in your body may not be as welcomed. Mommy makeovers are performed by Dr. Potter for women from Hays, Salnia, Dodge City, Wichita Colby and throughout the Mid West so they can now reclaim their pre-baby figure. Dr. Potter performs this combination of procedures known as the Mommy Makeover for women who feel they too have lost their youthful appearance and request the Mommy Makeover procedures to simply feel better about themselves.
The Mommy Makeover procedures
Liposuction is a good option for removing pockets of pregnancy fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Cosmetically speaking, successful liposuction is measured in inches rather than pounds. The weight removed is not as important as the improvement in your body’s contour. There are many new liposuction techniques available that help reduce surgery time, pain and bruising.
Tummy Tuck is a surgical procedure designed to flatten a protruding abdomen by tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall and removing excess fatty tissue and skin. If your laxity and excess skin are below your navel, a mini tummy tuck may be right for you. For those with severe laxity of their abdominal muscle or excessive skin, a full tummy tuck may be the solution.
Breast Surgery can dramatically improve the appearance, size and shape of a woman’s breasts after childbirth. Breasts that sag, or have increased or decreased in size can be treated with several types of breast surgery. To restore pre-baby breasts there are several options: breast augmentation with implants, breast lifts, and breast reduction.
Cellulite Treatment is a nonsurgical procedure that provides a marked improvement in skin tone and the actual reduction in the appearance of ripply skin. Cellulite treatments do not involve breaking the skin in any way.
Scar and Stretch Improvement with our advanced laser technology has been shown to improve or eliminate red or raised scars and stimulate the production of collagen to improve or eliminate the appearance of stretch marks.
Who Should Have a Mommy Makeover?
Many young women are self-conscious about their new body image after childbirth and would like to look their best when returning to their careers and hectic lifestyles. For many of these young mothers, cosmetic surgery may be the answer. It is also important to note that some mothers may not be ready for surgery immediately after childbirth; often times they choose to wait until their children are older.
What areas of the body are treated in a Mommy Makeover?
The most common areas of treatment are the stomach and breasts, while cellulite treatments and scar and stretch mark improvement are increasingly popular.

Women of all ages deserve to look and feel their very best. By combining cosmetic procedures with a healthy lifestyle, diet, exercise, and a good skin care regimen women of all ages can make feeling better about themselves a reality.
