MOMMY MAKEOVER 
Specials Miami

Pregnancy causes the abdomen and breasts to swell. After childbirth, the abdomen deflates, but sometimes mom is left with an abdominal bulge – called diastasis recti – or loose and sagging abdominal skin. And after breastfeeding ends, breasts can lose volume and sag.

For these reasons, many local mothers seek out mommy makeover surgery.

WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

This surgery is actually a combination of 2 or 3 surgeries designed to bring a mother’s body back to its pre-pregnancy state:

  • A tummy tuck to cut out loose and sagging abdominal skin and, if present, stitch up separated abdominal muscles that can cause a bulge in the tummy that won’t go away with diet and exercise.
  • Breast augmentation with silicone or saline breast implants to renew the lost breast volume.
  • In some cases, a breast lift to reposition the breasts to a more youthful appearance after breastfeeding has taken its toll on them.

Your specific mommy makeover procedure will be customized to your unique presentation and surgical goals.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

Our plastic surgeons recommend that women are certain they are done having children before undergoing this procedure. Future pregnancies are entirely safe, but they may negate your surgical results.

Additionally, our surgeons want candidates to:

  • Be in good overall health.
  • Be in good psychological health.
  • Be at or very near their goal weight and have a history of having maintained this weight for at least 6 months.
  • Be a non-smoker, as smoking can complicate surgery and delay your recovery process.

MOMMY MAKEOVER RECOVERY

Moms will need to take two weeks off work or their day to day activities, during which time they won’t be able to push anything (including strollers) or lift anything (including small children). If you have young kids at home, we recommend you have family or friends help you with childcare during your recovery period.

You’ll need to refrain from exercise for 4 to 6 weeks, after which time our doctors recommend you resume your fitness routine to help maintain your weight and results.
