At Shafer Plastic Surgery in New York City, the Mommy Makeover is a highly sought out procedure. Dr. Shafer performs Mommy Makeovers using a unique and individualized combination of procedures designed to counteract the physical effects of childbearing and breastfeeding to restore and enhance one’s body.
Body Changes Following Pregnancy
The body goes through a number of physical changes during pregnancy. While some of these changes are temporary, others can remain long after childbirth. Some women struggle to lose all the excess weight they may have gained during pregnancy using traditional methods of weight loss like dieting and exercise. Areas of the body like the upper arms, stomach, thighs, and breast can become saggy as a result of breastfeeding.
Some women may also develop a condition known as diastasis recti as a result of pregnancy. Diastasis recti occurs when the abdominal muscles become stretched and strained during pregnancy, causing them to separate and forming a permanent gap between them. This gap in the abdominal muscles can cause a permanent pooch to form on the stomach that won’t go away no matter how much you exercise and diet. The only way to properly correct the issue is to surgically tighten the abdominal muscles.
What Is a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is actually a combination of different body procedures designed to restore the pre-pregnancy appearance of the body. Multiple procedures are performed on the body at once as opposed to performing them separately over the course of several months. The procedural plan will be designed specific to our New Mom in consultation with Dr. Shafer to address their specific wishes.
These may include but are not exclusive to:

Mommy Makeover Recovery
The exact length of the recovery period for a mommy makeover varies based on a number of different factors, including the amount of procedure being performed during the mommy makeover, the extent of the work being performed, and each individual patient’s healing rate. Dr. Shafer will provide you with a list of post-operative instructions to help make the process as easy as possible.
It is important to note that since multiple procedures are being performed during one surgery, the recovery period for a mommy makeover can be more challenging. However, the advantage to having a mommy makeover is that there is only one recovery period required as opposed to having to spend months recovering after each individual procedure. Patients are also able to attain their ideal final results in a much shorter amount of time.
The Cost of a Mommy Makeover
The cost of a mommy makeover varies based on the amount of procedures being performed and the extent of the work required. Dr. Shafer will discuss the cost and your payment options during the consultation process.
