What is a mommy makeover?

Pregnancy can leave the stomach muscles weak and separated while compromising the appearance of the chest. Stretched out, redundant skin and accumulated fatty tissue are also inevitable after childbirth. Moms may try to combat these changes through diligent dieting and exercise regimens, but it is rarely enough to affect the dramatic improvements they seek. 

Dr. Alizadeh's performs custom mommy makeovers in NYC - each mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic procedures that can help restore your figure, optimize your wardrobe choices, and allow you to feel like yourself once more.

The lineup typically includes breast surgery, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and facial rejuvenation, but Dr. Alizadeh takes great pride in customizing your mommy makeover to meet your needs. He will curate a personalized treatment plan that can include any and all areas of your body that have been affected by motherhood.

Mommy Makeover Patient Reviews

What procedures are included in a mommy makeover?

Breast augmentation/lift

Mommy Makeover patients may choose breast augmentation with implants to restore the shape and size of their breasts. There are a number of considerations, such as the type, shape, size, and texture of the implants chosen, as well as the location of the incision and the placement of the implant.

Alternatively, if a mommy makeover patient's main concern is drooping breasts, a breast lift or Dr. Alizadeh's NaturaBra™ technique involves removing excess skin, tightening other tissues in the breast, and creating an internal bra from existing skin to create a natural perkiness that has been scientifically shown to last more than 10 years. Dr. Alizadeh can also perform a breast augmentation with a lift, delivering the benefits of both procedures.

Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty is used in a mommy makeover to create a flatter and leaner abdomen while at the same time strengthening the walls of the abdominal muscles. Dr. Alizadeh's NaturaTuck™ tummy tuck technique removes unwanted fat and loose skin, using progressive-tension sutures to minimize recovery.

Dr. Alizadeh uses innovative plication techniques to define the abdominal musculature and, in certain patients, can perform the “no pain/no drain” procedure using Exparel anesthetic that numbs the abdomen for up to 72 hours post-procedure while using progressive tension techniques to obviate the need for drains and maximize fast recovery.

Buttock lift

A "butt lift" is included in a mommy makeover for patients who want to improve the appearance of flattened or sagging buttocks by augmenting them with their own fat. Dr. Alizadeh uses his NaturaCurve™ technique to create a rounder look that addresses laxity while providing roundness and projection.

Liposuction

Liposuction, which involves loosening and suctioning out subcutaneous fat deposits with a thin device known as a cannula, is often used on its own but is frequently combined with other surgeries to optimize the results of a lift or similar contouring procedure. It can be applied all over the face, neck, and body – from the thighs and hips to the chest area, back, and upper arms – as part of a mommy makeover.

Other options

Because pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing impact each woman's body in a unique way, patients can discuss their own ideal mommy makeover with Dr. Alizadeh during an initial consultation. The procedure can also include facial contouring, labiaplasty, and non-surgical treatments.

What can I expect from the treatment process?

  1. Consultation – Dr. Alizadeh conducts an in-depth initial consultation to learn about your aesthetic concerns and craft the best solution-based treatment plan for your needs. He will perform a physical exam and a thorough review of your medical history, presenting you with all the information you need to move forward with confidence.
  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, you’ll be a new version of yourself that is more youthful, energized, and rejuvenated.
  3. Procedure – Dr. Alizadeh carries out your treatment plan, carefully performing strategic body sculpting to maximize your physique. He will create incisions conservatively so as to minimize post-operative scarring and reduce your risk of complications. Once your sutures have been closed, you will be placed in our state-of-the-art recovery suites to be monitored before you are allowed to return home.

What happens after my mommy makeover?

After surgery, you will need a friend or family member to accompany you home and assist you with chores for the first 24 hours. Dr. Alizadeh will provide you with pain medications as well as antibiotics to ward off infection.

You will receive compression garments that help minimize your swelling and keep your newly contoured physique in peak condition. Drains may be placed to help escort excess fluids out of the body.

 As with any surgery, you can expect ample swelling and bruising. These side effects typically reach their zenith several days after surgery and then begin to diminish slowly over the course of several weeks.

Strenuous physical activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks or as recommended by Dr. Alizadeh. However, you can engage in light walks, which help improve circulation and boost your mental health. Most patients can resume work in 2-3 weeks, provided their job is not physically demanding.

Mommy Makeover FAQs

What are the risks associated with a mommy makeover?

Risks of a mommy makeover 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, which is why Dr. Alizadeh strongly suggests that you postpone your mommy makeover if you expect to get pregnant again within the next few years. If you do have a mommy makeover and then get pregnant in the future, revision procedures can be performed 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, be sure to 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.
