Women Go Under The Knife For Mommy Makeovers

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

35 year old Jessica Williams has 2 small children Mila, 2, and Phillip, just one-year old.

They are the lights of her life, but she's covering up an embarrassing problem. According to her, breast feeding has knocked her figure completely out of whack so much so she says she can hardly find a bra or other camouflaging garment to conceal saggy, lopsided breasts.

"I do a push-up," she said.

Jess is a growing number of moms who want to have their kids and curvy figure too.

"I feel like I can be this again," she said.

And what about societal backlash? Those who say a changing figure is expected and part of the beauty of being a mom?

"Just because you're a mom I don't think you should let yourself go." said Jessica.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Steven Davis says there are basically 3 options.

“A lift cutting away excess, repositioning and stitching it up, implants to fill the void or a combination of the two,” he said.

"I probably don't want to get like too much done," Jessica told FOX 29.

But returning to her pre-baby B-Cup through a breast lift is not the best option for Jessica.

"We can take these new silicone gel implants that have these higher projecting qualities and literally give a breast lift simultaneously with giving more fullness," said Dr. Davis.

She wasn't expecting to hear implants.

"I am overwhelmed," Jessica said but still willing, because she'll have fewer scars.

So she is sized up and marked up for the doctor figures. It'll take about a 500 CC implant to fill the bill.

"You could really see the size difference once one implant was placed and compared it to the other side," Dr. Davis told FOX 29 in the operating room.

The trick he says is to keep it looking real.

"We used a sizing device to show what would fit perfectly. 500cc implant, that's the size," Davis recalled.

It’s a size that makes her like a full C or a small D cup.

One week after the procedure Jessica is visibly happy with the procedure.

“I'm very happy, you can see that they basically restored her shape," she said.

"Where's the scar? I'm telling you, go find it," said Dr. Davis. It’s hidden inside a natural crease.

Jessica says she hasn't missed a beat not with these two, but she is taking it easy on the heavy lifting and tight snuggling.

A mommy breast makeover can run anywhere from $6,000 to $12,000 Jessica’s cost $6500.

Important to note: the procedure, the cost, and scarring depend on what needs to be fixed and your insurance probably won't cover it.
