What’s a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic Surgery for New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Motherhood can be difficult on the body. Many women feel physically different after pregnancy. Pregnancy can also be coupled with significantly less time and resources to get back in ideal shape. The impact of carrying a baby and breast feeding can also wreak havoc on the body. The cumulation of these events can be very difficult on the self esteem. Fortunately, with improved surgical techniques, mommy makeovers are safer and produce better results than ever. As a result, mommy makeovers are becoming one of the most popular surgical procedures in New York and throughout the country. Mommy makeovers are a combination of surgeries to address a new mother’s concerns, usually involving two or three different areas, such as:

  • Arm lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Butt lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Skin tightening

The most common mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck and breast surgery. Tummy tucks tighten the skin around the abdomen and remove fat so that the tummy appears tighter and more toned. Breast surgeries often involve augmentation or a lift, with or without implants. Some women’s breasts simply droop after pregnancy, while some others experience deflating of breasts. Depending on the woman, a lift or implants may address these issues. In addition, more and more women have also been including the Brazilian Butt Lift with their mommy makeover. Other alternatives focus on different parts of the body - occasionally, the procedure may also include a thigh or arm lift.

Mommy makeovers are entirely customizable. The purpose of getting a mommy makeover is to help you reshape your contours and tighten your muscles, and repair any loose skin. Combining multiple surgeries in a single procedure also leads to a quicker overall recovery than if each procedure is performed individually, giving you more time with your family. Your improved appearance can lead to increased confidence, which can dramatically impact your emotional wellbeing.
