The figure you love, restored.

Pregnancy and childbirth are among the most physically taxing experiences a woman experiences. Muscles and skin stretch dramatically, leaving behind stretch marks and lax muscles that are no longer able to contract the way they did in the past. To restore their bodies, new mothers often seek a Mommy Makeover. We offer this procedure at Florida Plastic Surgery Group, which could help you regain a sleek, youthful physique.

Choosing to have surgery performed is a big decision, and at Florida Plastic Surgery Group, our team can guide you in this process.

You can rely on our knowledgeable and friendly staff to provide the care you deserve, whether your goals are reconstructive or aesthetic in nature.

The effects of pregnancy on the body

The rapid, dramatic growth of the uterus during pregnancy stretches not only the skin, creating stretch marks but also affects the abdominal muscles beneath. Even when new mothers exercise after childbirth, the abdomen could remain lax, unable to regain strength. Weight loss does not necessarily improve abdominal tone because the laxness is not caused by fat or lack of muscle tone. Instead, this laxity occurs because the connective tissue that surrounds the abdominal muscles has also been stretched.

A pregnant woman’s breasts also grow rapidly and dramatically during pregnancy, with similar cosmetic consequences. Even after childbirth and nursing is complete, breasts may remain loose and saggy, despite returning to their original size.

How a mommy makeover works

A Mommy Makeover combines a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures to restore firmness to both the breasts and abdomen. A breast lift, possibly combined with a breast augmentation, lifts the breasts and restores their original shape, size, and tone. A tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck removes excess skin, repairs stretched or torn muscles and connective tissue, and removes lingering fat from the abdominal area. 

Some women also choose to have thigh lifts or buttock lifts as part of a Mommy Makeover. Discussing your goals with our doctors will help you determine what combination of procedures will be best for you.

Are all mommy makeovers the same?

Each Mommy Makeover is different. Your Mommy Makeover will be based on procedures that best address your specific objectives and concerns. If you are not concerned about the size, shape, and tone of your breasts, for example, you will not need to have a breast lift performed.

Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?

Any woman who is in overall good health and unhappy with her post-childbirth body could be a candidate for a Mommy Makeover. It is highly recommended that you wait until you have no other plans to bear children again before having a Mommy Makeover. If you plan on having more children, a Mommy Makeover might not be the best choice at this time. If you become pregnant after having these procedures done, many of the results of the surgery could be undone.

Dr. Desai and his team took outstanding care of me at a time when I had to make very difficult decisions. Three surgeries later, I’m very pleased with the results. Every step of the way his team was helpful, quick to answer my questions, and worked with me on my follow-up visits to the office.

How long does it take to recover from a mommy makeover?

Recovery time after a Mommy Makeover depends on the type and number of procedures you have chosen, as well as your own overall physical health. If you only have one or two procedures, such as a breast lift and a tummy tuck, your recovery period may likely last two to three weeks. If you have a full tummy tuck, breast lift, and augmentation, and thigh lift, your complete recovery may take four to six weeks. The length of your recovery period may be shorter if you are in overall good health and if you are not a smoker.
