After pregnancy and childbirth, many women in New York City find themselves unhappy with changes to their bodies. Sagging breasts, excess skin on the abdomen, and stubborn fat deposits can leave moms feeling self-conscious about their figures. This is where a Mommy Makeover can help.

Understanding the Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of body contouring procedures and cosmetic surgeries designed to reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding on a woman’s body. These effects may include:

  • Weight fluctuations and inability to lose pockets of fat
  • Loose, sagging skin on the breasts and abdomen
  • Loss of breast volume and breast tissue deflation
  • Stretch marks and excess skin on the breasts, abdomen, hips, and thighs
  • Muscle separation and loose abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
  • Aging, stretching, or scarring of the vaginal area

The specific procedures included in a Mommy Makeover depend on each patient’s aesthetic goals and problem areas, but the most common surgeries include breast enhancement, body contouring, and vaginal rejuvenation.

In some cases, a Mommy Makeover may also incorporate other procedures like thigh lift, arm lift, facial treatments, and scar revision. The goal is to comprehensively address all of the patient’s aesthetic concerns in one coordinated combination treatment plan.

Procedures Involved in a Mommy Makeover

The procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover are tailored to each patient but commonly include a combination of the following:

Breast Procedures

  • Breast Augmentation: Breast augmentation is a procedure that enlarges breast size and restores shape and fullness in the breasts. Saline or silicone breast implants can be used to increase volume, lift sagging breasts, improve symmetry, and achieve a more youthful breast contour.
  • Breast Lift: Also called mastopexy, a breast lift reshapes and lifts sagging, drooping breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to raise the breasts. The nipple is repositioned higher on the breast to create a perkier, more lifted breast profile.
  • Breast Reduction: Breast reduction removes excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin from enlarged, heavy breasts to reduce their overall size and create better proportion. This procedure relieves physical discomfort from overly large breasts while resulting in a smaller, lifted breast contour.

Body Contouring Procedures

  • Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal muscles to create a flatter, smoother, and more toned stomach profile. The belly button is repositioned higher for a more youthful look.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction slims and contours the body by suctioning out stubborn fat deposits from targeted areas like the hips, thighs, flanks, and arms. When combined with excision techniques like tummy tuck, liposuction comprehensively refines body shape.
  • Buttock Lift: A buttock lift reshapes and lifts sagging, drooping buttocks by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to restore a perkier, firmer, and more lifted contour. Implants or fat grafting can sometimes augment volume.

Additional Procedures

  • Vaginal Rejuvenation: Vaginal rejuvenation includes procedures like labiaplasty which aim to tighten loose vaginal tissue, reduce excess skin, and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the vaginal area. This restores a more youthful look and feel.
  • Scar Revision: Scar revision techniques including laser therapy, skin excision, dermabrasion and steroid injections help reduce and improve the appearance of scars from procedures like C-sections. This creates smoother, less visible scarring.

Mommy Makeover costs in New York City generally range from $17,000 to $30,000 on average. Here is a breakdown of estimated average fees for individual procedures:

ProcedureAverage Cost
Breast augmentation$12,000 – $18,000

Buttock lift$15,000 – $20,000

Other Factors Influencing the Cost of a Mommy Makeover

Several important factors impact the overall cost of a Mommy Makeover:

Extent of CorrectionProcedures like a breast lift to correct significant drooping and sagging will cost more than a minor breast lift. The more extensive the correction needed, the higher the surgical fees.
Geographic LocationPrices are generally higher in major metropolitan areas like New York City or Los Angeles compared to smaller cities or rural areas where cost of living is lower. More competition in big cities can also raise prices.
Surgeon’s ExpertiseHighly skilled board-certified plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic procedures tend to charge higher fees than less experienced surgeons. Their attention to detail and technique impacts results.
Surgical Facility ChargesOperating room fees, equipment costs, and overnight hospital stays if needed add to the total costs. Cosmetic surgery centers are often more expensive than hospitals.
Anesthesia FeesThe complexity of the procedure and the total length of surgery impact anesthesia costs, which can range from $1,000 for something simple up to $1,500+ for longer, multi-procedure surgeries.
MedicationsPrescription pain medications, antibiotics, other meds needed for recovery average $100-$300 overall.
Post-surgical GarmentsSpecialty bras, binders, compression garments are needed during recovery, averaging $100-$300 total.
Combination of ProceduresDoing multiple procedures in one surgery, like a tummy tuck combined with breast lift and liposuction, costs more than just doing one procedure. The surgery is longer and more complex.

Financing and Payment Options

Since a Mommy Makeover is a significant investment, most practices offer flexible financing options and payment plans. Common financing options include:

  • Credit cards
  • Cosmetic surgery financing

Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover

1. Importance of a healthy diet and maintaining a stable weight

Achieving your ideal weight prior to surgery and maintaining a stable weight post-surgery are important for optimal Mommy Makeover results. Fluctuating weight can impact your contours and cause stretching of the skin and tissues. Patients should commit to a healthy diet and exercise routine.

2. Physical Examination and Medical History review

During your initial consultation, your plastic surgeon will conduct a complete medical history review and physical exam. This helps identify any pre-existing conditions, risk factors, or medications that could impact your procedure or recovery. Medical clearance from your primary doctor is often required.

3. Setting aesthetic goals and discussing cosmetic goals

The initial consultation allows you to discuss your aesthetic goals with your surgeon. Together you will decide which combination of procedures can best help you achieve the look you desire. Your concerns and problem areas will be evaluated and measured. The surgeon will explain your options and make recommendations to customize your surgical plan.

4. Addressing common concerns

If you do plan to have more children in the future, your surgeon can adapt the Mommy Makeover plan accordingly. Additional pregnancies may impact results, so some women opt to wait until family completion. Maintaining a stable weight after surgery is ideal, as significant weight fluctuations can stretch and compromise surgical results.
