It is a combination of plastic surgery procedures created to help moms regain their pre-pregnancy bodies, including Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Liposuction Body Sculpting and Brazilian Butt Lift (Augmentation).
Pregnancy and breast feeding can result in a volume loss in breasts, stretched abdominal muscles, loose skin, stubborn fat deposits and flattened buttocks, even after baby weight is lost. And although diet and exercise are important for good health, the combination is not always enough to get a post-pregnancy body back to the shape it was in before having babies.
In Dr. Bray’s practice, the most common “Mommy Makeover” combination is a Breast Lift and/or augmentation, Tummy Tuck and liposuction body sculpting which can all be performed in the same surgery.
A good candidate is someone who, even with diet or exercise, is not able to achieve the physique they had before pregnancy or after losing a large amount of weight. Dr. Bray’s patients routinely comment on how much better clothes fit with improved proportions and they feel more confident with their slimmer and sleek new contours.
Scarless Breast reduction is a procedure in which excess fat is removed from the breast using BodyTITE liposuction rather than a full breast reduction surgery. Bodytite uses a small cannula so only a miniscule incision on each breast is necessary. And because Bodytite liposuction shrinks the skin while removing the fat it can achieve a lifting effect in addition to reducing weight.
For recovery a tight bra is recommended to offer support, reduce swelling and help shrink the skin. You should be able to return to work within a week or so.
A good candidate is someone who is in good health is close to their ideal weight and has realistic expectations. It is for someone whose breasts are too heavy causing discomfort and/or looking disproportionate compared to the rest of their body.
A tummy tuck and further liposuction body sculpting procedures can be done in the same surgery.
The abdomen is an area known to accumulate excess fat and experience reduced skin tone after pregnancy or major weight loss. The advantage of BodyTITE Liposuction is that it can offer patients, for the first time, an opportunity to provide some of the tightening effect of a tummy tuck without the long scar.
Someone who leads an active lifestyle, has done all they can to minimize abdominal fat, is close to their ideal weight and is realistic about their goals and expectations is a good candidate. They may be a candidate for a traditional tummy tuck but unwilling to accept the long scar and recovery process.
*After pregnancy or major weight loss the muscles of the abdomen are often stretched and the skin lax and droopy. In these cases the best option is usually a mini or full abdominoplasty (surgical tummy tuck). A Full Tummy Tuck is a procedure for the upper and lower abdomen where the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened and the excess skin and fat are removed. The Mini Tummy Tuck (minor abdominoplasty) is where only the lower abdomen is tightened and excess skin and fat is removed.
A consultation with Dr. Bray will determine which procedure would provide the best result for your unique body shape and needs.
This procedure targets the fat deposits from the top of the buttocks to the upper hip and lower waist areas that cause the “Muffin Top” appearance. They are usually the first and most common areas to accumulation excess fat deposits, which can make the rest of the body appear out of proportion. BodyTite Liposuction can gently melt and remove the stubborn fatty tissues from these areas while simultaneously tightening the skin for a smooth final contour. The procedure results in a more slenderized and tapered looking body profile. This is a very popular procedure in Dr. Bray’s office for both men and women. Patients frequently say how much better their clothes fit without that pesky roll hanging over their waistband.
Breast augmentation and/or lift, further body sculpting to back, thighs and tummy tuck may be procedures performed at the same time.
A good candidate is someone in good health who, despite exercise and diet, is unable to reduce the excess fat in the hip and flank area. Common patients include moms who want their pre-pregnancy bodies back, weight loss surgery patients, or those who are genetically pre-disposed to having fatty deposits in the hip and lower flank area.
It is a procedure to remove excessive fatty deposits that accumulate on the hip and outer thigh area causing what is commonly referred to as Saddlebags. This problem can be very frustrating for women who are in great shape but are still unable to get rid of the stubborn fatty bulges that make the lower body appear disproportionate and bulky. BodyTite liposuction is able to melt the resistant fatty tissue while tightening the skin for a smoother final contour. The procedure can dramatically improve the shape and proportions of the lower body.
The procedure only requires very small incisions to remove the fat and sculpt the thigh and hip area. These incision marks fade with time leaving no tell-tale signs of surgery. A garment is worn during the recovery period to reduce swelling, offer support and keep the shape firm.
This is a very popular procedure in Dr. Brays practice. Patients routinely comment on how much better clothes fit and they feel more confident with their new improved contours.

Banana Roll Liposuction Toronto (bulge below buttocks and back of upper thigh) – eliminating the banana shaped roll is a challenging problem because it’s usually a combination of loose, sagging skin not just excess fat. If you just remove the fat with liposuction you can aggravate drooping of the buttocks making it worse. BodyTITE liposuction may work in some cases but it’s very patient-dependent. In most cases it is better to treat the banana roll in context of an overall buttock shaping and/or lifting procedure, combined with fat grafting and sculpting. READ MORE

BodyTITE liposuction works well at removing small amounts of fat from each of these areas. By removing fat from the ankles and knees while tightening the skin simultaneously it creates a more proportionate and defined calf area for a more appealing lower leg shape. These procedures can be done separately or in combination.

Dubbed the “bat wing”, the loose, floppy skin found on the upper arm has traditionally been best treated with a brachioplasty (arm lift). BodyTITE Liposuction, however, offers the potential to tighten loose skin while also avoiding a long scar on the inner side of the upper arm. Only one tiny incision is required on the inside of each arm for this procedure.
Someone who is in good health and close to their ideal weight and has realistic expectations of what the treatment can offer. It is for someone who doesn’t have a large amount of sagging skin.

It is a new rejuvenation treatment for those who don’t need or want a full surgical face and/or neck lift, FaceTITE and NeckTITE treatments are usually performed under light sedation. Though the procedures don’t offer the dramatic result experienced with a full face or neck lift, both deliver a significant improvement over laser or other surface treatments.
The procedure is performed by placing a tiny incision inconspicuously under the chin, where a small amount of fat can be removed.
Dr. Bray can also do this procedure without removing any fat but just to tighten the skin for a more lifted and refreshed appearance.
With a short recovery period, Dr. Bray has found these treatments to be an excellent new option for improving face and neck appearance and reducing the signs of aging.
Someone in good health, with realistic expectations and who isn’t interested in a full surgical face or neck lift is ideal for this procedure.
