Your Mommy Makeover
As a breast and body specialist, Dr. Diaz is particularly skilled and experienced in personalizing his technique to achieve each of his patient's goals. Women visiting him for a Mommy Makeover have many different reasons for their decision to consult a plastic surgeon in Melbourne, FL, and Dr. Diaz takes the time to listen to each woman's motivations and guide her through the process of customizing an approach that's just right for her.
A Mommy Makeover typically combines two or more procedures. Dr. Diaz customizes each Mommy Makeover based on your consultation and discussion with him about your cosmetic goals. For example, a Mommy Makeover may combine a breast enhancement procedure such as augmentation with a body contouring procedure like a tummy tuck or liposuction. The combination of these procedures helps restore a woman's pre-pregnancy appearance, allowing her to once again enjoy a youthful figure with perkier breasts and a flatter tummy.
A Mommy Makeover may combine procedures to lift and enhance droopy breasts, remove belly fat and tighten loose skin - all in one surgery. Dr. Diaz designs these procedures to occur in a single session because he recognizes that busy moms don't have the time for multiple recovery periods. By combining procedures, he also provides his patients with a way to cut down on the cost involved in multiple surgeries.

I will forever be grateful to him – he truly changed my life!!!!"
