After losing 100+ pounds in my early twenties through diet and exercise, I dreamed of having all the loose skin removed but instead just did my best to keep it hidden. Then after three back-to- back pregnancies in my mid-thirties, the loose skin was unbearable, and I couldn’t stand it any longer. So with the support of my family, I decided to undergo plastic surgery and met with a couple of different doctors. Dr. Wendel was the only surgeon I met with that was open to doing all of my procedures in one surgical session. I was hoping to get a body lift, a thigh lift, an arm lift, and a breast lift (without implants), and I really wanted to do it all in one go. He told me he had been trained to work quickly and efficiently, and he assured me that it was entirely possible to do all of the procedures in a day. Dr. Wendel’s staff was so kind and encouraging, making me feel less nervous about my decision, and a few days after my consultation, I booked my surgery. The surgery took about eight hours, and the recovery was NOT easy. That being said, I am overjoyed with my results. I would do it again in a heartbeat as for the first time in years, I am happy in my own skin…now that there is a lot less of it. Dr. Wendel and his staff were wonderful and answered all my questions pre and post-surgery, and whenever I had a problem (random swelling, etc), they always squeezed me in even when extremely busy. I would highly recommend Dr. J. J. Wendel to anyone considering any sort of plastic surgery.

Many mothers aren’t satisfied with the changes in their body after childbirth. These women are concerned with the extra weight around their tummy and thighs. Their breast size, shape and perkiness may have changes. There may even be changes to the birth canal, such as tenderness or tearing of the vagina. These women come to Dr. Wendel with concerns about getting their bodies back into pre-pregnancy state.
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures performed for a woman who wants her pre-baby body back. The procedures can involve: breast lift or breast augmentation, tummy tuck, possibly liposuction and any of the other procedures listed below, including labiaplasty.
Giving birth can drastically change your breasts in many ways. Typically, they become larger to store the breast milk, and then turn smaller and less firm when there is no longer breast milk. Many women come to Dr. Wendel with mommy makeover questions about how they can get their breasts back to the pre-pregnancy state. One way is to enhance the breasts with breast implants (breast augmentation).
Following childbirth, you may notice your breasts are sagging and are no longer as perky as they once were. This is very common after breastfeeding or pregnancy. Gravity takes its toll on a mother, but a breast lift might be a solution for you. A breast lift can help you restore your breasts to their original position.
Following childbirth, some women notice their breasts are smaller and deflated and at times have nipples that point downward. What was once a full “C” cup is now a “B” or maybe even an “A”. If you are looking for more volume, in addition to a lift, a breast lift with implants is a good option to consider. This procedure has an added benefit since most women would rather have one operation instead of two, undergoing a breast lift and breast augmentation at the same time.
Sometimes we see drastic changes in our breasts after childbirth. In some cases, a woman’s breasts become bigger. It’s natural to have larger breasts while you are pregnant, since your body is creating milk and storing it in your breasts. But sometimes women notice their breasts remain larger even after they have stopped breast feeding. If you feel your breasts are too large and not proportioned to your body size you might want to consider breast reduction surgery.
Following childbirth, many mothers have extra fat, saggy skin and muscle weakness in the tummy area. If you have minimal fat and minimal sagging in the skin, you are a candidate for a mini tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck removes a small amount of skin and is best for someone who has a small pouch in their tummy area. Another advantage of the mini tummy tuck is the use of one incision, versus two. A full tummy tuck leaves you with a scar below your bikini line and one around the belly button. A mini tummy tuck does not involve a scar around the belly button.
Following childbirth, you may realize the pregnancy significantly stretched your abdomen. Your tummy area might feel heavy, and has sagging skin and excess fat. If the pouch in your belly area does not respond to exercise or diet and is larger than you would like, you might be a good candidate for a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
Following childbirth, many women begin to diet and exercise to get their bodies back into pre-pregnancy shape. You may find however, your body has changed significantly. It is no longer responding to diet and exercise as it once did. You now have fat deposits around your body and can’t seem to get rid of them. If this is you, consider the benefits of liposuction. Liposuction candidates should be healthy and close to their ideal weight.
If you had a vaginal birth, you may have noticed your labia minora or labia majora look and feel different. The area might be stretched, prone to infections and might even be causing discomfort with clothing. In addition, you may notice the symmetry in the vaginal area is off, following the childbirth. While this is a very private issue for many women, the reality is this surgery is becoming increasingly popular for women who seek improvement in the area.
