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. In addition to discussing your aesthetic goals, you and Dr. Bidic will also review your medical history, lifestyle, and other factors that can affect your experience. It's important to be candid during this conversation to ensure that you get the best results for your body.
In addition to providing an in-person conversation and a physical examination, we can also use our VECTRA software to capture an image of your body. This advanced 3D imaging system creates an interactive rendering of your body. Together, you and Dr. Bidic use the software to plan your procedure.

Your Mommy Makeover Procedure
At American Surgical Arts, a mommy makeover typically includes:
- Tummy tuck: Dr. Bidic performs this procedure to remove excess skin and stretch marks from the abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall corset. The goal is to give 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, 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.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
Because the surgical plans for mommy makeovers vary from patient to patient, determining the price depends on multiple 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.
Dr. Bidic strives to keep his prices competitive within the region. He offers financing options to help his patients achieve the results they desire.
What to Expect After Treatment
After the procedure, patients can conveniently spend the night in the practiceâ€™s new surgical facility. Staff members will ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable during your stay. Upon returning home, recovery will vary depending on which procedures were 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.
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.
