Mommy Makeover


Pregnancy and nursing can greatly change a woman’s body to the point where it doesn’t even feel like hers anymore. To make room for a growing baby, the body stores fat and stretches the skin and muscles. There is a limit to how much the body will naturally revert to normal after pregnancy, even with the help of diet and exercise. Many women find that they are left with sagging breasts that lack volume and shape or abdominal regions that are loose and soft. Oftentimes, women experience both breast and abdominal issues, leaving them feeling flabby and unattractive. The Mommy Makeover combines multiple body contouring procedures to help return a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy appearance, sometimes leaving it even better than before.

Thinking About Getting the Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover can restore the pre-pregnancy body in many ways. Here are just a few benefits of this procedure:

Lift Sagging Breasts

Sagging breasts are a common side effect of nursing. They can leave women feeling unattractive out of their bras, which can affect their confidence in the bedroom. As part of the Mommy Makeover, a breast lift can give you youthful breasts with a more attractive shape and position.

Enhance Your Cleavage

Some women experience breast volume loss after pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover can help return your ample cleavage and have you feeling more attractive in your bras, T-shirts, and swimsuits.

Fit Into Your Pre-Baby “Skinny” Jeans

Every woman has that pair of jeans, that idolized pair, from when they were at their skinniest. Abdominal contouring and liposuction can not only allow you to fit back into those jeans and look great in them, but all your jeans can become your “skinny” jeans.

Increase Your Confidence

Regaining control of your body and feeling alluring in it once again will help restore your confidence. When you feel beautiful, you won’t be able to help feeling secure in your new body.

Renew the Passion in Your Relationship

The chores that come along with a new baby can take some the excitement out of your relationship. Mix that with not feeling attractive about yourself and you have a recipe for a lackluster love life. Women who feel more confident in their bodies are more likely to carry that excitement over into their personal relationship.

Your Mommy Makeover Options

There are various body contouring techniques that can be used to sculpt your ideal body. Dr. Wald will evaluate your body type and your enhancement goals to develop a plan that is perfectly tailored to your needs.

You’ve just had a Mommy Makeover! Now what?

After the Mommy Makeover procedure, the recovery process will be as follows:

Immediately After

Breast Procedures

Your breasts will likely be sensitive to touch because of the stretched tissue, and they may feel tight. Bruising and swelling are both common post-surgery. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication to help alleviate discomfort.

Abdominal Procedures

You will most likely be able to return home the same day as the surgery. You will experience redness, bruising, and swelling. Expect moderate discomfort for which your doctor will prescribe pain medication.

1 to 2 Weeks After

Breast Procedures

For the first week, you will still feel stiff and sore in your chest region. You should refrain from lifting, pulling, pushing, or twisting the upper body.

Abdominal Procedures

During the first two weeks post-surgery, you should rest and perform very little physical activity. You should not do any heavy lifting, including picking up your children. You will still experience swelling, and you may feel sore.

4 to 6 Weeks After

Breast Procedures

You should minimize excessive physical activity for the first month. Be gentle with your breasts, as they may still be sensitive.

Abdominal Procedures

You will begin to regain your full mobility and may slowly begin to return to your normal routine.

Several Months After

Breast Procedures

After several months, you should be close to full recovery. Most of the major swelling and bruising should have subsided.

Abdominal Procedures

It can take several months to achieve full recovery after surgery. By this point, most swelling should have subsided, and pain should be nonexistent.
