Why NYC Patients Choose a Mommy Makeover

What the Mommy Makeover Entails

Your mommy makeover will be customized to your particular goals and your unique physical characteristics. During your consultation with Dr. Albert, he’ll get to know your cosmetic aspirations. With this information in mind, he’ll help you explore the various treatment options that can help you reach your goals. In addition to a number of surgical procedures, we also offer a full range of non-surgical treatments that can be utilized alongside invasive procedures. Some of the most common surgical procedures that are a part of the mommy makeover include:


Dr. Albert will remove excess skin and unwanted fat, re-contouring your abdomen with a tummy tuck. With a full tummy tuck, he will also bring together the abdominal muscles that have widened during pregnancy to give you a tighter, firmer figure.

Breast Lift

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause changes in the size, shape, and fullness of your breasts. A breast lift will help you address sagging and drooping, restoring your youthful look and repositioning your nipple in an attractive and symmetrical way.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation helps you restore the presence of breasts that appear deflated or that have diminished in size by placing implants that will enhance their size, shape, and projection. You’ll enjoy a more perky and curvy bust that improves your overall silhouette.


Dr. Albert frequently uses liposuction in combination with other aesthetic procedures to give patients an overall fitter appearance. The technique helps him create smooth contours and naturalistic transitions between areas of the body by eliminating excess fat.

Dr. Albert can include these and other procedures in your treatment plan based on the results in which you’re most interested. The design of the mommy makeover is your own, as this is your opportunity to achieve your personal aesthetic vision.

Your Mommy Makeover Experience  at Albert Plastic Surgery in NYC

Your mommy makeover surgery will be performed while you are placed under general anesthesia. Because a mommy makeover can address several areas of the body and include multiple procedures, it can take several hours to complete. For the abdominoplasty, Dr. Albert will remove excess skin and fat and tighten the abdominal muscles. He will utilize a long-acting local anesthetic in the surgical area, which can significantly improve your comfort for several days after surgery. During the breast augmentation and lift, Dr. Albert will raise and center the nipples and add natural-looking fullness to the breasts.

Patients may opt to have only a breast lift if they are happy with the size of their breasts already, though Dr. Albert typically recommends adding an implant or your own fat to maintain fullness over time.

The method of liposuction that Dr. Albert performs will depend on your needs and preferences. He has experience in a variety of techniques and will focus on placing incisions where scars will remain hidden by natural folds in the skin. Patients may also benefit from RF-assisted lipolysis, which can both eliminate areas of fat and tighten loose skin.

The Recovery Process

After your mommy makeover, you can expect to experience some moderate discomfort. Dr. Albert will work to ensure that you have a comfortable experience by taking care to utilize long-lasting local anesthesia and by recommending medication for pain management. It will be important to walk around after your mommy makeover to encourage healing and proper circulation. Dr. Albert will ensure that you’re given detailed aftercare instructions, so you’ll know exactly what to expect after your mommy makeover. Swelling is also common after breast-related procedures. Following a breast augmentation and lift, a unique two-part dressing system is used to cover your incisions and promote healing with minimal scarring. With both abdominoplasty and breast procedures, scar care is integral to minimizing signs of surgery. Based on your skin type, Dr. Albert may recommend silicone sheeting, silicone tape, or laser treatments to soften and flatten scars. Our team will be available to you at all times during your recovery process to address any questions or concerns.

Enjoying Your Final Results

Your recovery period will vary according to the procedures you have had performed, as well as the rate at which your body tends to heal. For most people, this means returning to light exercise about three weeks post-op. Many patients are back to normal exercise about six weeks after surgery. Once you have fully healed, you can enjoy the full results of your treatment: a rejuvenated appearance that returns your body to its pre-baby state. In advance of your surgery, we’ll be sure to provide you with a detailed recovery timeline that fully explains the process to you.
