As many women know, pregnancies can have a significant effect on the body, causing abdominal skin looseness, stretching of the abdominal muscles, droopiness and emptiness of the breasts, and stubborn pockets of fat on the hips and thighs. Dr. Breitbart performs Mommy Makeover surgery, which is designed to treat all these conditions, restoring a more youthful, pre-pregnancy body. Mommy Makeover surgery can typically involve an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation and/or breast lift, and liposuction. These surgeries can often be combined in a single operation, or can also be performed as separate procedures.
In general, women should wait at least 4-6 months after pregnancy before having a Mommy Makeover. If you are planning on additional pregnancies in the near future, you should delay the Mommy Makeover until after these pregnancies.
For most Mommy Makeover patients, a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and/or breast lift can be performed in a single surgery. Dr. Breitbart can decide which procedures can safely be done together at the same time.
For most patients, the Mommy Makeover is performed as an ambulatory surgery procedure and the recovery time is 1-2 weeks.
