Post-Pregnancy Body Reshaping: What You Need to Know

Welcoming a new life into the world is an incredible experience filled with joy and anticipation. But it also comes with many significant physical changes. From stretch marks to stubborn fat pockets, the post-pregnancy body can feel like unfamiliar territory. The good news is that you’re certainly not alone, and there are ways to embrace and reshape your body after childbirth. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the different “mommy makeover in Atlanta” options available for restoring your body shape after pregnancy, because every mama deserves to feel confident and comfortable in her own skin.

How Pregnancy Changes Your Body

Pregnancy is a miraculous process, but it can also leave its mark — literally. Your body goes through a whirlwind of changes, both inside and out. Your abdomen stretches to accommodate a growing baby, leaving behind loose skin and weakened muscles. The size and shape of your breasts may fluctuate dramatically, and shedding those extra pounds gained during pregnancy can feel like an uphill battle. 

These changes are entirely natural, but it’s okay to want to restore your body’s shape and feel like yourself again. With Perimeter Plastic Surgery’s body-shaping procedures, you can reclaim your confidence and embrace your post-pregnancy body with pride.

Different Procedures for Post-Pregnancy Reshaping

Body Conturing Procedure

Fortunately, there are several body contouring procedures available to help women regain confidence and restore their pre-pregnancy silhouette. At Perimeter Plastic Surgery, we offer a range of options tailored to your specific needs:

Breast Lift

If pregnancy and breastfeeding have left your breasts feeling less perky, a breast lift might be just what you need. Also known as mastopexy, this procedure involves removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue to enhance your overall silhouette and bring that youthful bounce back. For women experiencing a loss of volume in addition to sagging, a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation to restore fullness and achieve natural-looking results.

Breast Augmentation 

Whether you’re looking to restore lost volume or enhance what you’ve got, breast augmentation can help you achieve the bust of your dreams. This procedure restores fullness and improves symmetry either through implants or fat transfer. With a wide range of implant options available, including saline and silicone implants in various shapes and sizes, you can achieve a customized look that complements your body and aesthetic goals.

Tummy Tuck 

Say goodbye to that stubborn belly pooch with a tummy tuck! Also called abdominoplasty, this popular body sculpting procedure targets excess abdominal skin and tightens weakened muscles to create a flatter, more toned midsection. A tummy tuck can also provide functional benefits by restoring core strength and alleviating issues such as back pain and urinary incontinence.


Sometimes, diet and exercise just aren’t enough to get rid of the excess weight that you gain during pregnancy. Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes unwanted fat from areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to help you achieve a slimmer, more toned look. 

With advancements in techniques such as laser-assisted and ultrasound-assisted liposuction, this procedure offers improved precision, faster recovery times, and reduced risk of complications.

Candidates for Post-Pregnancy Body Sculpting

While these procedures offer transformative results, they are not suitable for everyone. In general, you are a good candidate for body contouring after pregnancy if:

  • You are in good overall health.
  • You don’t smoke.
  • Your current weight is within the ideal range for your age and height.
  • You have completed your family planning.
  • You have realistic expectations about the procedure.

During your consultation at Perimeter Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mark Deutsch will assess your medical history to determine your candidacy and create a personalized treatment plan that fits your goals.

I highly recommend Dr. Deutsch to anyone looking for a mommy makeover. After having 3 c-sections and living with a horrible scar from my surgeries, Dr. Deutsch did an amazing job of reversing the damage pregnancy did to my body. My results are way better than I could’ve imagined!! Dr. Deutsch performed a tummy tuck with lipo to flanks and fat transfer to breasts with a lift. His nurses are amazing and the staff has always been so nice and accommodating!

Dr. Deutsch did such an amazing job with my breast reduction and abdominoplasty. After 4 children, I was Size E/F and am now a full C. Removed Right 500 cc and Left 600cc with the inverted T (anchor). The breast shape, nipple size, and placement are so spot on!! I am extremely happy with the results, and I came back to finish the mommy makeover with a hip lift and lipo on the flanks.

Dr Deutsch was attentive, answered all of my questions, and provided helpful discussion and advice for different procedures. Such a wonderful staff as well! It is well worth your time to have a consultation.
