Today is a great time to get your pre-pregnancy body back!
Now that we’ve finally turned the page on 2020 and are into a new year, what better time to make some changes that will give you the toned, slim, curvy figure you’ve been wanting. No matter what kind of shape you were in before having children, it’s likely that pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding have all taken a toll on your body. Have your breasts drooped, are they smaller than before, have your thighs developed saddlebags, has your tummy become soft and flabby? Good news: a Mommy Makeover can fix all that!
Whether you decide to have one body contouring procedure or a combination at the same time, a Mommy Makeover helps women of all ages and body types regain their pre-pregnancy shape, or better yet, achieve a slimmer, tighter, more toned body than they had before.

When asked if a Mommy Makeover is safe, my answer is yes
In over 20 years of performing Mommy Makeovers in my plastic surgery practice, I have encountered very few complications in my patients as a result. In fact, what I have observed is that for women who have had this procedure, it has been a wonderful turning point in their lives, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to feel confident about their bodies, sometimes for the first time.
I perform all of my plastic surgery procedures at The Surgical Specialty Center of Westchester, a state-of-the-art 4-operating-room, 11-recovery-bed ambulatory surgery center that meets the New York Department of Health standards for Hospitals. In addition, I use the most advanced, state-of-the-art techniques to minimize my patients’ pain and recovery time so they can quickly return to their families and their lives.
For your Mommy Makeover, combine any of these 7 procedures
Whether performed under local, “twilight” or general anesthesia, a Mommy Makeover consists of a customized combination of body sculpting plastic surgery procedures. Choosing to have several procedures at the same time is actually highly beneficial because it limits your total recovery downtime so you are inconvenienced as little as possible. Here are the procedures that can be included in a Mommy Makeover:
Breast augmentation surgery is performed to enlarge small breasts, underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have decreased in size after a woman has had children. It can also make breasts more symmetrical if one is significantly larger or smaller than the other. There are three types of breast implants available in the U.S.: saline (sterile saltwater), silicone gel, the Ideal Implant (a structured, saline-filled implant) and the Natrelle® Gummy Breast Implant.
Breast lift surgery restores the shape and contour of breasts that have sagged as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, age, gravity, heredity and other factors. This procedure re-positions the nipple and areola (the pink skin surrounding the nipple) to a higher position, moves the breast tissue to a higher level, removes excess skin from the lower portion of the breast, and reshapes the remaining breast skin.Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. As long as you maintain your weight, liposuction is a permanent solution for fat removal. The most commonly-requested areas of the body for liposuction are: waist, hips, flanks, arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks and lower legs.
A Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to take pockets of excess fat from unwanted areas such as your belly, waist or thighs and transfer it to the buttocks area, increasing the size, shape, position and fullness of your butt. The benefits of a Brazilian butt lift are two-fold: it slims and trims those areas where you have too much fat, while giving you a higher, fuller, firmer butt. Plus, since a Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat, there is very little risk of rejection.
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is a highly effective way to reduce excess fat and skin and tighten abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck removes loose, flabby skin that has lost its shape and elasticity, strengthens weakened stomach muscles, improves the look and shape of the belly button, defines the waist, removes stretch marks, and creates a smoother, tighter midsection.
Lower body lift surgery, often done in conjunction with liposuction, reduces excess fat and loose, hanging skin. It is also very effective at tightening and sculpting the buttocks, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips and abdomen. This surgery may also help minimize the appearance of cellulite.
Are you a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
It’s important to realize that a Mommy Makeover is major surgery with a certain amount of recovery time. For that reason, I want to emphasize that you should undertake a Mommy Makeover for yourself, not to fit some ideal image (airbrushed fashion models, singers or movie stars) or to fulfill someone else’s idea of what your body should look like.
Ideal candidates for Mommy Makeover surgery should:
- be in good medical health
- be at or near their ideal body weight
- have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
- be finished with childbearing
- not smoke or drink excessively
Considering a Mommy Makeover?
I understand that choosing any of the Mommy Makeover procedures is an important decision for a woman. I also know how much it means to each and every one of my patients to achieve the results she wants.
