Mommy Makeover

Childbirth can take a large toll on a woman’s body. After pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, many women find it difficult or impossible to get back to their pre-baby body, which can cause self-esteem or intimacy issues. Unfortunately, there’s only so much that exercise and diet alone can do for you when your abdominal muscles are loose or your breasts have deflated.

A mommy makeover is tailored to each individual patient to help correct issues that exercise and diet alone can’t resolve. To create your personalized mommy makeover plan, please contact Dr. Gregory Brucato today at 203-431-7644 to schedule your complimentary consultation. We welcome patients from across Connecticut, including Ridgefield, Wilton, and Danbury.

What Procedures Are in a Mommy Makeover?

Some of the most popular procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover are:

  • Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck helps to flatten the abdominal area, tighten the skin, and stitch together loose, separated abdominal muscles for a more toned, flatter stomach.
  • Breast Augmentation: Breast implants can replace lost volume from pregnancy and breastfeeding. You don’t need to have large implants; smaller implants can help you achieve a very natural look.
  • Breast Lift: If your breasts have started to sag after childbirth, a breast lift is a good option. Breast lifts can be combined with breast augmentation for improvement in size, shape, and lift.
  • Labiaplasty: If childbirth has resulted in loose, stretched labia, you may want to consider a labiaplasty. This procedure helps to improve the appearance of the labia.

During your consultation, let Dr. Brucato know your goals. He will work with you to create a mommy makeover plan that addresses all of your concerns.

Candidates for a Mommy Makeover

You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you:

  • Are concerned with the appearance of your body after childbirth
  • Have reached a healthy and stable weight post-childbirth
  • Are not planning to have any more children
  • Have realistic expectations

A mommy makeover isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle following childbirth, and you’ll get the best results if you’re already at or near a healthy, stable weight. It’s important to wait at least six months to a year following childbirth to undergo any cosmetic surgery, because it can take that long for your hormones to get back to normal and for you to shed your baby weight.

While a mommy makeover will not negatively impact your ability to have children or breastfeed in the future, we recommend waiting until you’re finished having children. This is because having another child can undo the effects of your surgery and require revision surgery.

Recovery After a Mommy Makeover

Recovery after a mommy makeover will vary depending on which procedures you had. Typically, a tummy tuck requires the longest recovery time, as it is the most extensive and complex procedure.

Most patients find that they can return to work after around a week. You should be sure to have help around the house immediately after your mommy makeover, as you won’t be able to perform household chores or lift your child for the first day or so.

Dr. Brucato will give you detailed post-operative instructions that you should follow closely.

Mommy Makeover Cost

The cost of a mommy makeover will depend on how many procedures you decide to undergo, and the complexity of each. Dr. Brucato will let you know the exact cost after you have decided on a plan during your consultation.

We are happy to work with you to help you afford your procedure, and we offer plastic surgery financing through CareCredit in addition to other payment options. CareCredit offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Get your procedure sooner, without having to wait
  • 0% and low APR plans

We’ll be happy to walk you through your options during your consultation, so don’t hesitate to ask.
