Mommy Makeover Procedures

Mommy makeover procedures can involve several procedures performed at one time or over a series of surgeries and appointments. A mommy makeover is designed to address a number of aesthetic issues you may be having after childbirth. Procedures that are often included in a mommy makeover are:

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) targets the most obvious area of physical change in a new mom: the stomach region. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are often pushed apart and stretched, making it extremely difficult to restore the mid-section to its pre-pregnancy appearance. A tummy tuck tightens the stomach muscles and pulls the remaining skin taut for a flatter, firmer appearance. Learn more about abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) here.

Breast Augmentation with Implants

After pregnancy, the breasts can lose volume and appear smaller. Along with a breast lift, our plastic surgeons can also place silicone or saline breast implants to give you a fuller bust line that’s more proportionate to your body frame. This popular plastic surgery procedure is an ideal part of a mommy makeover for women who would like to restore lost volume in the breasts. Learn more about breast augmentation implants here.

Breast Lift

One of the most common effects of pregnancy and breast-feeding is a sagging appearance in the breasts. A breast lift can address drooping and deflation by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin of the breasts. By lifting the breasts—and sometimes the nipple—to a higher position our experts can create a perkier, more youthful appearance. Learn more about breast lift surgery here.

Buttock Augmentation

Butt augmentation can enhance the size and shape of the buttocks while also improving the contour. As we age, and after the changes, the body undergoes during pregnancy, the butt can become flat or sag with excess skin. Buttock augmentation can either lift the butt, add volume to the butt, or both. Learn more about buttock augmentation here.

Injectable Facial Rejuvenation

At New York Plastic Surgical Group, we offer a number of injectable facial rejuvenation options. Injectables are popular, minimally-invasive modalities that help to smooth and plump the skin.

Neurotoxins like BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport can be used to dramatically reduce wrinkles, while dermal fillers are typically employed to fill lines, plump the lips, and add contour to the face. Learn more about cosmetic injectables here.


Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat pockets that have accumulated during or after pregnancy. These fat pockets can be removed from virtually anywhere on the body for a more contoured, fit aesthetic. New York Plastic Surgical Group uses advanced liposuction techniques that have proven safe and effective at eliminating excess fat and restoring your natural curves. Learn more about liposuction here.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

There are several procedures used by the surgeons at New York Plastic Surgical Group for vaginal rejuvenation. Included are labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, labia majoraplasty, monsplasty, and vaginoplasty. Learn more about vaginal rejuvenation procedures here.

Some procedures in a mommy makeover can be combined into one operation. Your plastic surgeon will discuss each procedure with you at your initial consultation and determine if your individual needs can best be met with a combination of procedures performed at one time, or spread out over a series of appointments.

A mommy makeover can be performed at one of our state-of-the-art operating rooms in our Garden City or Manhattan locations. The  operatories are fully equipped and have been certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). This certification signifies that facilities adhere to the highest standards of care.

Benefits of Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a customized combination of body contouring procedures tailored to address a number of cosmetic concerns women face after childbirth. The benefits of a mommy makeover procedure include:

  • A smoother and flatter stomach
  • A more toned midsection and abdominal muscles
  • An overall more youthful appearance
  • Fuller, perkier breasts
  • Slimmer arms, back, flanks, and thighs
  • Increased confidence
  • Clothes fit better
  • Removal of stretch marks on the lower abdomen

Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover

As with any surgery, it’s important that you are in good general health and follow your surgeon’s instructions.1 When preparing for your mommy makeover procedure, it’s also important that you:

  • Quit smoking2
  • Fill the prescriptions provided by your surgeon before surgery
  • Avoid any blood-thinning medications such as anti-inflammatories and aspirin
  • Find transportation to and from your surgery
  • Arrange to have someone stay with you for the first night after surgery

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Recovery from a mommy makeover depends upon how many procedures a patient undergoes at a time. For the most invasive procedures, patients can generally expect one to three weeks or more of recovery. Final results will be visible after several months, once all swelling has dissipated.3

Mommy Makeover Results

Depending on the procedures included in mommy makeover surgery, results typically show a flatter, firmer stomach, fuller, perkier breasts, and a slimmer appearance. While some of the mommy makeover procedures do result in a scar, the majority of women feel that these tradeoffs are well worth the improvement in self-confidence following mommy makeover surgery.4 We invite you to view real patient results here.
