Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover – Full-Body Rejuvenation for Moms in Paramus at Art Plastic Surgery

Motherhood is as physically challenging as it is emotionally rewarding. If you have children, then you know that pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can take a toll on your body. At Art Plastic Surgery, we offer a comprehensive suite of procedures designed to help your body heal from the stress of childbearing. These procedures, commonly referred to as a mommy makeover, can give you renewed confidence in your appearance.

Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Luis A. ZapiachDr. John T. Cozzone, and Dr. Pedro Vieira provide a calm, welcoming environment at their Paramus plastic surgery practice. If you’re interested in cosmetic rejuvenation, we’re here to help. We offer a range of both surgical and non-invasive procedures so that we can customize your mommy makeover to fit into your busy schedule.

What’s Included in a Mommy Makeover?

The exact procedures incorporated into your mommy makeover will depend on your individual needs. Some moms choose to target just one or two specific areas of their body, while others decide to pursue a complete makeover. A mommy makeover can be used to correct any of the following cosmetic issues:

  • Loss of breast volume
  • Breast sagging
  • Loose abdominal skin
  • Stubborn belly fat
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose labial tissue
  • Excess fat on the flanks, hips, and thighs
  • Signs of facial aging and skin discoloration

To learn more about the procedures used to treat these issues, you can read the guide below, or reach out to us directly by phone or email.

Body Contouring

Pregnancy tends to change the way fat is distributed on the body. That’s why so many moms are frustrated to discover that even after they lose all their “baby weight,” they retain a small pouch of belly fat. Pregnancy can also lead to the development of diet-resistant fat on the hips, thighs, and flanks. Making matters worse, many moms struggle with loose abdominal skin and damaged abdominal muscles. Folds of loose skin can accentuate a muffin top, while weakened abdominal muscles allow the lower belly to protrude.

When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Zapiach, Dr. Cozzone, and Dr. Pedro Vieira will examine your abdomen in order to determine whether you need liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, or both procedures (they can easily be combined into one operation).

Breast Enhancement

Many mothers are surprised to discover how dramatically breast size fluctuates during pregnancy. Extra breast volume tends to disappear after breastfeeding, however, leaving the breasts looking deflated. Breast enhancement can restore your pre-pregnancy shape or give you permanently fuller breasts.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Delivering a baby causes the tissue of the vagina to stretch significantly. Sometimes, this tissue becomes so lax that it can’t revert to its original shape. The presence of an extended labia minora then leads to chafing, irritation, and feelings of self-consciousness. To treat this issue, patients have the option of using a surgical procedure (labiaplasty) or a non-surgical treatment (ThermiVa™).

Facial Rejuvenation

Melasma (dark patches of skin) is a common side-effect of dramatic hormonal shifts. To treat melasma, Dr. Zapiach, Dr. Cozzone, and Dr. Vieira use laser skin resurfacing to gently exfoliate away highly pigmented skin cells.

If you would like to incorporate anti-aging therapies into your mommy makeover, just let us know. We can use injectable treatments like Dysport® and dermal fillers to smooth away wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. You may also be interested in trying the Silhouette Instalift, a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Whatever your personal objectives are, we’ll be happy to include them in your customized treatment plan.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

Your recovery period will vary depending on which procedures you have. Recovery from tummy tuck surgery takes the longest, requiring about two weeks of rest and two months of observing certain activity restrictions. Liposuction, breast augmentation, and breast lift surgery usually only require seven to fourteen days of rest. Non-surgical procedures require no downtime at all, making them the preferred starting point for most moms with young children at home. Visit our various procedure pages to get a more complete idea of what you can expect during recovery.

Before having non-surgical therapies (like injectables and skin resurfacing), you’ll need to be done breastfeeding your baby. For surgical patients, we recommend being at least six months postpartum. You should also be done having children before you have surgery, simply because future pregnancies might compromise your results. Having surgery won’t affect your ability to safely have children, however.

The ideal mommy makeover candidate is a woman who is in good health, has lost most of her baby weight, and doesn’t smoke. When you come in for a consultation, our doctors will review your medical history, including any medications or supplements you take, to make sure you’re ready for surgery.
