Am I A Candidate For Mommy Makeover Surgery?



Mommy makeover procedures typically involve a combination of a number of procedures, either performed together in one operation, or over a series of appointments. Mommy Makeover candidates typically include mothers who are experiencing:

• Extra skin and fat in the breasts causing a sagging or drooping appearance
• Excess fat and skin in the abdominal region
• Stubborn fat deposits in virtually any area of the body
• Areas of stretch marks

A Mommy Makeover is designed to address a number of aesthetic issues you may be having after childbirth. Procedures that can be part of a Mommy Makeover include:

• Breast Augmentation: to add volume to deflated breasts after pregnancy and breasfeeding
• Breast Lift: to raise the breast mound of sagging or drooping breasts post pregnancy
• Breast Reduction: to decrease overly large breasts
• Abdominoplasty: to eliminate excess skin and possibly correct abdominal muscle separation post pregnancy
• Liposuction: to eliminate stubborn pads of fat in the abdomen post pregnancy

Mommy Makeover Surgery in Detail



Each of the procedures below can be included in Mommy Makeover Surgery. Dr. Zuckerman will help you decide which procedures are a best fit for you at your consultation. Each of these procedures also has a standalone page linked below with more comprehensive and specific information about that type of cosmetic surgery.

Liposuction

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. Dr. Zuckerman uses advanced liposuction techniques that have proven safe and effective at getting rid of excess fat and restoring your natural curves.

Learn more about liposuction.

Breast Lift

One of the most noticeable effects of pregnancy is droopiness and extra skin in the breasts. This can also become more pronounced after breast-feeding. A breast lift as part of a Mommy Makeover procedure addresses sagginess in the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the skin of the breast area, lifting the breasts to a higher position for a more youthful, “perky” appearance.

Learn more about breast lift.

Breast Augmentation with Implants

After pregnancy, the breasts can lose volume and appear smaller. Along with a breast lift, Dr. Zuckerman can also place silicone or saline breast implants to give you a fuller bustline 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 for a more curvaceous, sensual appearance.

Learn more about breast augmentation with implants.

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).

Injectable Facial Rejuvenation

Dr. Zuckerman also performs a number of injectable facial rejuvenation options that can do wonders for eliminating the appearance of exhaustion and aging that can afflict new mothers. Botox® Cosmetic can significantly reduce wrinkling and creases in the forehead and other areas of the face, and dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm® can fill in lines and wrinkles as well as plump up the lips and cheeks for a more youthful aesthetic.

Learn more about injectable facial rejuvenation.

Some procedures in a Mommy Makeover can be combined into one operation. Dr. Zuckerman 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 at one time, or spread out over a series of appointments.

A Mommy Makeover can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s state-of-the-art private operating room inside his office in midtown Manhattan. This operatory is fully equipped and has 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, and this private facility guarantees the maximum amount of discretion and confidentiality.

Mommy Makeover Surgery Recovery



Recovery from Mommy Makeover procedures will depend on the type and extent of the procedures undergone, as well as whether they were performed in tandem or over a period of months. Patients can typically expect anywhere from one to three weeks or more of recovery from the most invasive procedures, and a much shorter period for procedures such as injectable treatment.

On the day of surgery, Dr. Zuckerman applies a long-acting local anesthetic called EXPAREL® for all cosmetic breast and body patients. Whereas most pain traditional pain medicines last up to a maximum of twelve hours, EXPAREL® gradually releases medication to a particular region for up to three days. This approach is a significant departure from previous techniques and minimizes postoperative pain and discomfort.

Dr. Zuckerman will discuss any and all questions and concerns about your recovery at your cosmetic surgery consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mommy Makeover Surgery



Below are the answers to some questions Dr. Zuckerman most frequently receives from prospective patients. If you don’t see your question below, feel free to contact Dr. Zuckerman’s office, and a member of his staff will be glad to reach out to you.

What is a mommy makeover technically?
Mommy Makeover Surgery is not a medical term but is an informal name for a collection of cosmetic breast and body surgery procedures. The most common modality of the surgery is an abdominoplasty combined with a breast augmentation performed on the same day. However, I have also performed abdominoplasty plus breast lift or breast reduction and liposuction only plus a breast procedure without an abdominoplasty. I will help you decide which combination of procedures is right for you.

Does having two procedures add to the recovery time?
The combination of two cosmetic surgery procedures only add marginally to a patient’s recovery time. While you may have some discomfort in more than one area (for example if you were to undergo a breast procedure combined with an abdominoplasty), the length of the recovery period will not be much longer nor much more intense. Done separately, the recovery period would be twice as long in total. In addition, combining procedures will save you money on facility, anesthesia and operating room feeds.

Can I undergo tummy tuck and liposuction at the same time?
Yes, my tummy tucks almost all involve liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and lower back as part of the procedure. The goal is to remove excess fat via liposuction and excess skin via the tummy tuck procedure to reshape your abdominal contour.

Must I have surgical postoperative drains put in during surgery?
Yes, I place drains in the abdomen for all abdominoplasty patients. They typically remain in place for one to two weeks and are not painful to remove. They help prevent collections of fluid called seromas and are quite important. You can shower with them in place, and they require minimal maintenance.
