A mommy makeover in New York City with Dr. Alizadeh can beautifully restore your physique and restore your self-confidence. He carefully tailors your surgical plan to address your unique concerns and resolve the cosmetic issues preventing you from looking and feeling your absolute best.

What is a mommy makeover?

Pregnancy can weaken and separate the stomach muscles while compromising the breasts' appearance. Stretched-out skin and excess fatty tissue are also inevitable after childbirth. Many moms try to combat these unwanted changes with diligent dieting and exercise regimens, but these measures are rarely sufficient for the dramatic improvements they seek.

A mommy makeover is a solution to this problem. The term refers to a customized series of surgical and cosmetic procedures rather than one set plan to restore your figure, expand your wardrobe choices, and help you feel like yourself again.

Dr. Alizadeh takes great pride in customizing your procedure to meet your needs. He will curate a personalized treatment plan to include any areas of your body that have been negatively affected by motherhood.

ALIZADEH’S PROVEN, MODERN TECHNIQUES FOR OUTSTANDING, LONG-LASTING RESULTS

When creating a custom surgical plan, Dr. Alizadeh often combines two of his most performed and popular procedures, the NaturaBra™ breast lift and the NaturaTuck™ tummy tuck.

The NaturaBra breast lift has been proven to have the most impactful, long-lasting outcome of any breast lift procedure. The NaturaTuck’s innovative technique results in minimal pain and a minimal drain approach for quick recovery and mobilization back to your daily life. 

Dr. Alizadeh combines the NaturaBra breast lift and NaturaTuck tummy tuck in a proprietary approach to produce a more athletic posture. The figure's aesthetics are improved, and scars are well concealed for an incredible ten-year follow-up satisfaction rate.

What procedures are included in a mommy makeover?

Breast augmentation/lift

Mommy makeover patients frequently choose breast augmentation with implants to restore the shape and size of their breasts. There are several considerations, such as:

  • Type, shape, size, and texture of the implants chosen
  • Location of the incision
  • Placement of the implant

Alternatively, if your primary concern is drooping breasts, a breast lift or Dr. Alizadeh's NaturaBra™ technique may be the right choice. The technique involves:

  • Removing excess skin
  • Tightening other tissues in the breast
  • Creating an internal bra from existing skin

This creates a natural perkiness scientifically shown to last more than ten years. Dr. Alizadeh can also perform a breast augmentation with a lift to deliver the exceptional benefits of both procedures.

Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty creates a flatter and leaner abdomen while also strengthening the walls of the abdominal muscles. Dr. Alizadeh's NaturaTuck™ tummy tuck technique removes unwanted fat and loose skin and uses progressive-tension sutures to minimize recovery. A mommy makeover most commonly includes a tummy tuck to repair damaged stomach tissue associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

Dr. Alizadeh uses innovative plication techniques to define the abdominal muscles and, in certain patients, can perform the “no pain/no drain” procedure.

The procedure uses Exparel anesthetic to numb the abdomen for up to 72 hours post-procedure paired with progressive tension techniques, eliminating the need for drains and maximizing fast recovery.

Buttock lift

A "butt lift" improves the appearance of flattened or sagging buttocks by augmenting them with fat harvested from other body sites. Dr. Alizadeh uses his NaturaCurve™ butt lift technique to create a rounder look that addresses laxity while providing roundness and projection.

A buttock lift is an ideal mommy makeover inclusion because it can correct issues caused by weight gain and skin stretching from pregnancy.

Liposuction

Liposuction loosens and removes subcutaneous fat deposits with a thin device known as a cannula. The procedure is frequently combined with other surgeries, such as a mommy makeover, to optimize the results of a lift or similar contouring procedure. Dr. Alizadeh can apply it all over the body, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Chest area
  • Back
  • Upper arms

Other options

Because pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing uniquely impact each woman's body, patients can discuss their ideal mommy makeover in NYC with Dr. Alizadeh during an initial consultation. They may include facial contouring, labiaplasty, and non-surgical treatments such as laser skin rejuvenation.

What can I expect from the treatment process?

You can expect the following three phases from the mommy makeover treatment process:

  1. Consultation – Dr. Alizadeh conducts an initial in-depth consultation to determine your aesthetic concerns and curate the best solution-based treatment plan. Additionally, he will perform a physical exam and a thorough review of your medical history to give you the information needed to move forward confidently.
  2. Anesthesia – Our board-certified anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia to ensure you are perfectly relaxed and comfortable throughout your treatment. You will feel no pain, and when you wake up with your improved physique, you’ll be more youthful, energized, and rejuvenated.
  3. Procedure – Dr. Alizadeh carries out your treatment plan by carefully performing strategic body sculpting to transform your appearance. He will create minimal post-operative scarring and reduce your risk of complications. Once your sutures have been closed, you will recover in our state-of-the-art suites to be monitored before returning home.

Dear Dr. Alizadeh,

For two years, I had considered doing a “Mommy Makeover,” a combined tummy tuck and breast augmentation surgery that I hoped would restore my pre-pregnancy body. Diet and exercise couldn’t help me any longer; my breasts were deflated and my stomach was plagued by excess wrinkled skin from losing and gaining weight during two back-to-back pregnancies. I was frightened by what I heard would be a long recovery fraught with pain, but I was more frightened that I would never be able to wear a bikini with confidence ever again. After months of research and several consultations with other surgeons, I knew upon meeting Dr. Alizadeh that he would be the one I’d entrust my body to.

Now, five weeks after surgery with Dr. Alizadeh, I can happily say that I am thrilled I decided to go for it. The results are phenomenal! I’m not sure my body ever looked this good—even before I had children. My breasts are firm and full, and my stomach is flatter than ever. I am so thankful to Dr. Alizadeh and the excellent care I received from the entire staff.

What happens after my mommy makeover?

After surgery, you will need a friend or family member to accompany you home and assist you for the first 24 hours. Dr. Alizadeh will provide pain medications and antibiotics to ward off infection. Additionally, you will receive compression garments to minimize swelling and keep your newly contoured physique in peak condition. Drains may be placed to help excess fluids out of the body.

During recovery, you should expect swelling and bruising for several days, which will subside over the next several weeks. Dr. Alizadeh recommends avoiding strenuous exercise for up to six weeks, but you should take light walks to help improve your circulation and mental health. Most patients can resume work within three weeks if their job is not physically demanding.

Mommy Makeover FAQs

What are the risks associated with a mommy makeover?

Risks from this procedure include infection, bleeding, anesthesia risks, hematoma, temporary numbness, scarring, poor wound healing, and poor cosmetic results. Breast surgery carries with it the risk of capsular contracture and implant rupture.

Can I have more children after a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover does not affect your ability to birth additional children. However, another pregnancy can compromise your aesthetic results, so Dr. Alizadeh strongly suggests you postpone your procedure if you expect to get pregnant within the next few years. If you have a mommy makeover and then get pregnant in the future, Dr. Alizadeh can perform revision procedures to help you maintain your figure.

Will I lose sensation in my nipples after the breast lift?

If you are concerned about losing sensation in your nipples, discuss it with Dr. Alizadeh at your consultation. He can adjust his technique to conform with your wishes, choosing incisions that do not disturb the nipple-areolar complex.

What is the cost of a mommy makeover in NYC?

Because a mommy makeover is highly personalized in terms of complexity and procedure combinations, the price varies considerably. Once Dr. Alizadeh has designed your surgical plan, it will include your exact cost.
