A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to restore your body after childbirth. Breasts change dramatically during a pregnancy, and for many women, there is often loss of volume, which can accentuate sagging, or ptosis, of the breasts. A post-pregnancy body can also suffer from loose skin, lower belly “pooch,” and areas of unwanted fat – and no amount of diet or exercise can improve this.
The procedures Dr. Rockmore typically combines for his patients include breast enhancement – with some combination of a breast lift, reduction, or augmentation with implants – tummy tuck, and liposuction. Dr. Rockmore can also add facial surgery or skin procedures to your customized mommy makeover for an overall transformation.
The advantages of combining the procedures are that the recovery times are combined, the cost is less, and the entire area of the body affected by your pregnancy is improved at once. No two bodies are the same and mommy makeovers are highly personalized for each patient. Working together with Dr. Rockmore, a custom treatment plan that achieves your goals can be achieved.

Dr. Rockmore can place breast implants as part of a mommy makeover, or use your own tissue, to restore the volume of the breasts and to enhance their shape. This can bring back the superior volume, or fullness above the bra line, that you used to have. A lift can also be added, if necessary, to treat any sagging. If there is excess breast fat or sagging, a breast reduction surgery will help achieve a more proportional shape. Fat grafting can also be used to maintain superior fullness.
A tummy tuck tightens the underlying muscles to create a flat foundation, then tightens the overlying skin to remove the lower stretch marks and laxity. There are several kinds of tummy tucks, including mini-tummy tucks, full tummy tucks, and extended tummy tucks. Dr. Rockmore will discuss the best treatment options to fit your individual needs.
It is very common for patients to combine a brazillian butt lift with their mommy makeover. Pregnancy can impact the buttocks in a way that no amount of exercise can reverse. As a component of your MMO, a buttocks augmentation can create drastic improvements to your overall appearance.
During pregnancy, unwanted areas of fat develop around the torso that don't seem to respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove this fat and combine with the tummy tuck to bring back your curves.
A mommy makeover is done as an outpatient procedure. The amount of time for the procedure depends on the extent of the surgical options, ranging from 2 to 4 hours. It is done using general anesthesia provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Even though it is an outpatient procedure, there is some recovery time, which can range from 10 to 14 days before you are back at work.
Over time, your scars will fade and your new shape will become apparent. A mommy makeover will allow you to fit in the clothes that you used to and feel comfortable with your body again. – possibly looking the best it ever has.
