Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva is highly experienced in providing a wide array of procedures for the body, most notably for her Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) and Mommy Makeover procedures. Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten muscles of the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty is not a surgical treatment for being overweight. Instead, it helps treat excess skin hanging off the belly caused by pregnancy or weight change. It can help restore a firmer look and feel and eliminate excess stretched-out skin due to loss of elasticity caused in pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss.
A Mommy Makeover is the combination of body contouring and breast enhancement procedures designed to address the effects of pregnancy on the female body. Sagging breasts, loss of volume, loose abdominal skin and stubborn fat are changes that cannot be resolved by diet and exercise alone. Women experience pregnancy differently, and a mommy makeover procedure can deliver life-changing results and address the different problems specific to the patient. Typically, a mommy makeover will include a combination of a body contouring procedure such as a tummy tuck and/or liposuction, as well as breast enhancement procedures such as breast augmentation or breast lift.
