Mommy Makeover Before & Afters
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Understanding Your Options
The most popular surgical procedures associated with a Mommy Makeover are the tummy tuck or abdominoplasty and the breast lift or mastopexy.
Abdominoplasty “The Tummy Tuck”
“The tummy tuck” or abdominoplasty is a safe, effective procedure for dealing with stubborn fat and sagging skin in the abdomen. This is a popular method for moms experiencing stretch marks, loose or sagging skin, stubborn fat areas, and weakened abdominal muscles after pregnancy. During the procedure, excess skin and fat are removed and the underlying muscles are tightened, leading to a flatter, better-contoured tummy.
WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
The Mommy Makeover procedure refers to a surgical way to restore the shape, contour, and appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbearing. Most women experience a noticeable change in their bodies after pregnancy. The most affected areas are the breasts and abdomen. Mommy makeovers typically consist of an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation (breast implants), and mastopexy (breast lift).
Other treatments popular among moms are liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, and anti-aging procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift).

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TUMMY TUCKS
There are different types of abdominoplasty techniques, and the specific method is based on your individual needs. During your consultation, our surgeons will determine the best option for your specific body and concerns.
The traditional abdominoplasty, or full tummy tuck, is the most common type. It is often paired with liposuction for optimal results. This tummy tuck method is best suited for patients concerned about loose and sagging skin or weakened abdominal muscles above and below the navel.
A mini tummy tuck or mini abdominoplasty is a smaller incision that rests along the bikini line. This technique is ideal for patients with small areas of loose skin or stubborn fat below the belly button but is otherwise happy with their upper abdomen.
Mastopexy “Breast Lift”
A breast lift, known as a mastopexy, is another procedure commonly performed during a Mommy Makeover. Many women notice a change in the appearance of their breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Sagging breasts is a common complaint. The sagging occurs when breast ligaments become stretched out due to increased breast volume. The breast lift surgery reduces sagging, resizes the areolas, and lifts the nipples into a more youthful position.
YOUR MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURE
Mastopexy is an outpatient (same-day) procedure. After arriving at the surgical center, you will be put to sleep using general anesthesia. An incision is made to access the underlying breast tissue. The tissue is lifted and reshaped to enhance the projection and contour of the breast. Once this is completed, the areola and nipple are also raised. Excess, loose breast skin is removed and enlarged areolas are reduced (if necessary). Once finished, the incision is closed, and the dressings are placed.
MOMMY MAKEOVER RESULTS
Mommy Makeover recovery varies for each individual. Because it involves so many different operations, discussing recovery time with your physician before undergoing surgery is essential. After liposuction or breast augmentation, you can often return to light exercise in about two weeks and full exercise in about six weeks. Generally, a breast lift requires more time to heal and is not recommended for women still breastfeeding, as it can interfere with milk production if performed too soon. Keep in mind that these are only broad suggestions; discuss your specific needs with Dr. Fiorillo during your individual visit.
MOMMY MAKEOVER RECOVERY AND AFTERCARE
After your Pearl River Mommy Makeover, the breasts are bandaged. You will experience some swelling and bruising, which may be persistent for several weeks afterward. Get plenty of rest and relax for at least a week, and follow all post-operative care instructions provided. While the breasts continue to “settle” over the following months, you will notice a change in your breast shape. You must wear a support bra.
Swelling subsides by around three months, and incision lines fade over six to 12 months. You will need help with childcare and household duties while you recuperate, so arrange for this before your procedure. Avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise until you are cleared to resume these activities. On average, patients can return to work and light activities after one to four weeks, depending on how they feel and what is recommended by the surgeon.
