What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can result in a number of changes to the body—particularly to the tissues of the breast and abdomen.
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic breast surgery and body contouring designed to restore the look and feel of the body after pregnancy. We emphasize refined and customized procedures that produce natural-looking, long-lasting results.

Mommy Makeover Services
Most mommy makeovers involve a combination of breast surgeries (including breast augmentation and breast lifts), tummy tuck procedures, and liposuction.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that changes the size or shape of the breasts using techniques such as implant placement or fat transfer.
For patients who have experienced a change in breast size or shape, breast augmentation can restore or increase the fullness and volume of pre-pregnancy breasts.
Implants can be composed of saline solution or a silicone gel and come in a range of shapes, profiles, and volumes.
Breast lift surgeries remove excess skin, tighten breast tissue, and reshape breast skin through a series of incisions. Your personal goals and anatomy will determine which type of incision is used. Breast lifts, or mastopexies, are performed to:
- Elevate drooping breasts
- Remove sagging skin
- Reduce and reposition the nipples and areolas
Breast lifts can be performed alone or with either a breast augmentation or a breast reduction.

Pregnancy-related hormonal changes and weight gain can put tremendous stress on the skin, muscles, and connective tissues of the abdomen. This stress can result in physical changes that are resistant to changes in diet and fitness, including:
- Localized fat packets
- Diastasis recti, a condition that happens when the thin connective tissue that connects your two vertical abdominal six-pack muscles is stretched or torn
- Excess abdominal skin
- Changes to belly button shape
- Stretch marks
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgery that removes excess skin and fat while reshaping the contours of the abdominal musculature.
“They were not pushy and did not try to sell me things, only listened to what my concerns were and made intelligent recommendations.”
Liposuction creates toned and slim contours through the removal of stubborn, localized fat packets.
Depending on your goals, liposuction can be combined with other mommy makeover procedures to achieve your desired results.
Note: While some physicians include a Brazilian butt lift in a mommy makeover, our practice does not perform any butt lift procedures due to their higher-than-average complication rate.
We make sure you have the information you need to feel informed about your decision, from your inquiry about our practice through the consultation and recovery.
The first step is a thorough, collaborative consultation. Before surgery, we provide:
- 60- to 90-minute in-depth initial consultations with a complete medical history review and physical assessment by Dr. Maman
- Multiple pre-op visits to answer all your questions
- Specialized surgery coordinators to help you navigate scheduling, financial, and insurance processes
Once you have decided to move forward with surgery, we emphasize convenience, comfort, and a smooth recovery. This includes:
- Convenient NYC operating facilities
- Luxury recovery room options at NYC hotels
- Complimentary, custom post-operative support garments and scar treatment regimens
- Attentive and routine aftercare visits
Personalized, Holistic Patient-Centered Approach
Understanding each patient’s personal and clinical needs is central to our practice. We customize treatment plans for each patient, and each patient receives Dr. Maman’s personal contact information along with direct round-the-clock access to our nurse and surgical coordinator.
“Dr. Maman and his staff are very patient and they took the time to answer all of my questions and provide honest feedback. My results are natural-looking and fresh, which is exactly what I was hoping for.”
Results & Recovery
Our priority is to provide the highest degree of comfort for our patients throughout their breast augmentation procedure and recovery.
We schedule multiple pre-op appointments to make sure that our patients are fully informed and know exactly what to expect from the procedure. We also stay in close contact during the pre-op period in order to ensure that each patient receives prompt and personalized care.
Once surgery is complete, local patients have the option to recover at home in NYC or in one of our luxury recovery rooms located in select hotels in the city. Recovery timelines vary depending on procedure, and our thorough aftercare options ensure optimized recovery and results.

Basic Mommy Makeover FAQs
How much do you charge for a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover treatment plan is carefully individualized to each patient based on their goals, anatomy, and medical history. Because we customize treatment for each patient, pricing can vary. During your initial consultation, Dr. Maman will conduct a detailed assessment of your goals. Afterward, you will receive an itemized price quote to help you make your decision.
Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
You are a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you are generally healthy, are done with childbearing, and have:
- Sagging and/or deflated breasts with enlarged and/or asymmetrical areolas
- Excess fat and loose skin around your abdomen
- Diastasis recti (separated stomach muscles)
- Stretch marks and/or misshapen belly button
Where will my surgery be performed? How long will it take?
Dr. Maman usually performs breast augmentation surgeries at an in-office, AAAASF-certified facility, or an outpatient ambulatory surgery center (ASC). He also has operating privileges at Mount Sinai Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York Eye & Ear Infirmary, and Englewood Hospital. We work with you to select the best facility for your needs.
Because a mommy makeover is designed to address multiple concerns at once, you should expect to be in the operating room for between four and six hours.
How soon can I receive a mommy makeover after giving birth?
Pregnancy and childbirth put immense strain on the body, and having a mommy makeover surgery too soon after giving birth can slow the recovery process. You should wait at least six months postpartum before having your surgery, but any surgery requires in-depth discussion and planning across several appointments. You can begin planning your surgery as soon as you feel ready to start gathering information and making decisions.
Should I consider a mommy makeover if I plan to have more children?
It is generally advised to wait until you are done having children before you undergo a mommy makeover. While there are no health risks to becoming pregnant after having this series of procedures done, a mommy makeover is a significant investment. Pregnancy can easily reverse the changes that come from this investment.
If you simply cannot wait and are planning a minimum of one year post-surgery before becoming pregnant, and if you understand that pregnancy will affect your results, Dr. Maman will work with you to determine viable options.
Is it safe to have multiple procedures at once?
Under certain conditions, yes. We consider a mommy makeover safe for medically healthy patients whose entire combination of procedures will take only four to six hours of surgical time. Dr. Maman will carefully evaluate your medical history to ensure your surgery happens with the least amount of risk possible.
If Dr. Maman determines that combining procedures is safe for you, a mommy makeover can minimize your overall recovery time and reduce costs.
How hard is recovery and how long will it take?
Because a mommy makeover combines multiple procedures into one surgery, it requires a more prolonged recovery period than a single procedure alone. You will likely require caregiving assistance for the first 24-48 hours, and it may take up to two weeks before you feel well enough to return to your daily routines.
During these fourteen days, we encourage patients to walk and participate in simple daily activities as they are able, but you should expect some level of discomfort, including bruising, swelling, and generalized tenderness over the first few weeks after your surgery.
Full recovery is typically achieved around four to six weeks.
When can I workout after a mommy makeover?
Your timeline for returning to the gym will depend on which procedures you have performed, but generally, patients can begin walking and other light-impact, easy exercise in four weeks.
Even if you feel strong, it is important to allow your body adequate time to heal. This means you should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting (anything over 10 lbs) for a minimum of six weeks.
Remember that by combining your procedures into one operation instead of spreading them out, you have actually reduced your overall recovery time. Allowing yourself those few extra weeks to recuperate will reduce your risk of complications.
When can I go home?
If a tummy tuck is part of your mommy makeover, Dr. Maman requires you to stay in the immediate New York City area for the first 24-48 hours after your surgery. If you do not live nearby or are uncomfortable recovering at home, our office will arrange for you to stay nearby at The Carlyle, The Mark, or The Surrey hotels, and we may also arrange for specialized nursing care during your stay.
Will I need special clothes after my surgery?
We will provide compression garments and bandaging that will help reduce swelling and fluid retention around your surgical sites. Most patients prefer to wear loose-fitting, button-down tops and soft pants with an elastic waist for at least the first week in order to avoid irritating incisions and allow for the drains that will be present for approximately seven days.
Will I have to pay for follow-up visits after my surgery?
Because we value our patients’ health and satisfaction above everything else, we do not charge for post-operative visits during the first year after your surgery or for annual procedure checkups if you choose to schedule them.
