Mommy Makeover

Print This Page

It's not uncommon for a woman to have sagging breasts and a protruding tummy after having children. Pregnancy and breastfeeding alter the structure of your body's tissues, resulting in changes to your breasts and midsection. But you can regain your pre-pregnancy body with a mommy makeover that includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, or other options. In Vineland, New Jersey, at American Surgical Arts, Dr. Sean Bidic combines certain procedures to target pregnancy-related cosmetic issues.

If you want to regain your youthful, pre-pregnancy figure through a mommy makeover and you live in South Jersey or along the Shore, choose a surgeon with experience and abilities that exceed your expectations. Request your consultation online or call (856) 362-8898 to schedule your appointment.

A Consultation That's All About You

Even if you're in great shape, only surgery can correct some of the changes caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Depending on the extent of stretched abdominal tissue, the volume of your breasts, the degree of breast ptosis (sagging), the amount and location of excess fat, and your aesthetic and lifestyle desires, Dr. Bidic will create a custom plan to rejuvenate your breasts and midsection.

 

Your Mommy Makeover Procedure

At American Surgical Arts, a mommy makeover typically includes:

  • Abdominoplasty: Dr. Bidic performs a tummy tuck procedure to remove excess skin and stretch marks from the abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall corset. The treatment gives the abdomen a flatter, firmer appearance.
  • Breast enhancement: With cosmetic breast surgery, Dr. Bidic can restore and enhance breast volume, position, and shape. Breast enhancement involves either a breast augmentation with silicone "gummy bear" or saline implants, a breast lift (mastopexy), or both. Some women desire a breast reduction.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction enables Dr. Bidic to reshape your figure by removing excess fat from typical trouble areas such as the back and flanks. He may also sculpt the hips and thighs.

The Cost of a Mommy Makeover

Because the surgical plans for mommy makeovers vary from patient to patient, determining the price depends on several factors. One of the benefits of combining procedures is a lower cost than if a patient undergoes operations separately. Cosmetic surgery costs also vary from region to region and depend on the plastic surgeon's training and experience. At American Surgical Arts, patients can expect the following prices:

Tummy tuck with breast augmentation - silicone implants: $14,000
Tummy tuck with breast augmentation - saline implants: $13,000
Tummy tuck with breast lift: $13,600
Tummy tuck with breast reduction: $15,800

Dr. Bidic strives to keep his prices competitive within the region, and he offers financing options to help his patients achieve the results they desire.

What to Expect After Treatment

Recovery will vary depending on which procedures are involved. Two weeks off of work is the norm. The patient should not expect to stand up straight for 4 to 10 days and must wear an abdominal binder for a month. For a month, you'll need to avoid lifting greater than 10 pounds and cardio workouts in which the heart rate exceeds 100. The combination of enhanced breast shape and a slimmer, firmer midsection produces striking results. Patients, and their partners, are equally ecstatic with the final outcome, and results are long-lasting.

Advanced 3D imaging lets you see the possibilities.

We use VECTRA to help evaluate your needs and better assess the expectations that are possible with surgery. You and Dr. Bidic will be able to review the 3D outcomes for the same procedure you seek.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during recovery after a mommy makeover?

One of the benefits of combining procedures is having only a single recovery period. Recovering from the tummy tuck is usually the most challenging part because it restricts movement. You'll have prescription medications and need someone to help you around the house for the first few days. Most of my New Jersey mommy makeover patients return to work and other regular activities after about 2 to 3 weeks. Dr. Bidic provides patients with detailed postoperative instructions that, when followed diligently, help the healing process and limit recovery time.

Can I have a facial rejuvenation procedure performed as part of a mommy makeover?

Although combining surgical procedures is a common practice, ensuring patient safety is our top priority. Non-surgical facial enhancement techniques such as dermal filler injections are particularly popular to include in a mommy makeover for an overall transformation. If you are interested in anti-aging facial treatments in addition to body procedures, ask Dr. Bidic whether adding them to your mommy makeover is possible and safe.

Are mommy makeovers only for moms?

Not at all. The procedures that are usually included in mommy makeovers – tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast enhancement surgeries – are all operations that help mothers restore their pre-pregnancy figures, lending the combination procedure its name. However, they are also treatments that many women who haven't had children consider getting as they get older. Anyone who is in generally good health may be a candidate.

How long after having children should I wait before a mommy makeover?

There is no specific time that a woman should wait after giving birth before getting a mommy makeover. In general, 6 months to a year is a reasonable time to wait, but each person's circumstances are different. You should be finished breastfeeding, and it's also advisable to be at or near a stable weight. Remember, also, that recovery following a mommy makeover will limit your ability to care for small children for at a week or 2, as you are advised against heavy lifting and so on. Some women wait until their youngest child is a toddler or even older before surgery. It's also very common for mothers whose children are fully grown to choose this transformative procedure.
