About the Mommy Makeover

After pregnancy and childbirth, it can be difficult and even impossible for patients to attain the body that they desire through diet and exercise alone. That's why our plastic surgeon, board-certified Dr. Lawrence Bass, offers mommy makeovers to women who are wishing to restore their cosmetic appearance postpartum. A mommy makeover can include a number of procedures such as breast augmentation and lifting, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, skin tightening, liposuction, and more. All of these procedures can be performed onsite at one of our Bass Plastic Surgery offices in either Great Neck or Manhattan, NY. Each patient will privately discuss their needs and concerns with Dr. Bass, so he can develop a fully custom treatment plan to help each woman get her body back. 

best Candidates

During a private consultation, our plastic surgeon will listen to all the concerns each patient has about her body to see if she is a good candidate for these procedures. Many women seeking these treatments and surgeries have:

  • Breasts that sag and droop from multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding
  • A tummy with bulges of fat that didn’t go away with after-pregnancy weight loss
  • Extra skin on the arms, buttock, and thighs that didn’t bounce back after pregnancy weight
  • A less-than-desirable shape to their breasts or buttocks that needs enhancement to fill in the lost volume after baby
  • Multiple areas of the body with visible, unattractive stretch marks

The best candidates for the mommy makeover are women who are finished having children. We strongly encourage women considering the mommy makeover to not plan on having more children once the surgeries have taken place as it will damage the skin by stretching and will require more plastic surgeries in the future.

What to Expect

Pregnancy changes many areas of the body — a mommy makeover will require careful planning and may be implemented in stages. Our plastic surgeon has years of experience performing these surgeries in one setting; however, sometimes the health of the patient requires more than one surgery date. The end result is still the same, just expect that some women will have more surgeries than other women and will endure a longer recovery time.

Some of the mommy makeover procedures may include a combination of:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift (with or without implants)
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Labiaplasty/female wellness treatments
  • Skin rejuvenation (laser treatments, wrinkle relaxers, fillers)

Our plastic surgeon will require an overnight stay for observation in the hospital after patients have multiple surgeries and are under anesthesia for 3 or more hours. This is to ensure our patient's safety and to limit the risk of infection post-op. We will also ensure our mommy makeover patients have the best in recovery care and pain management after the procedure.

Anticipated Results

New moms love the fact that once the extra skin has been removed and tightened, their stretch marks are drastically reduced. Our practice can minimize the remaining stretch marks with nonsurgical treatments such as lasers, microdermabrasion, and/or chemical peels. This does not mean there will not be surgery scars. As with all plastic surgeries, our highly skilled plastic surgeon will do his best to minimize scarring with careful incision techniques and placement. While the recovery time does take several months, patients are able to return to a normal routine in about 4 – 6 weeks and should wait for clearance from Dr. Bass before starting to exercise again. The entire mommy makeover transformation could take up to a year for recovery. The results are life changing for many women.
