In a mommy makeover, Dr. Karan Mehta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan, combines liposuction, skin excision, and lifting techniques to address post-pregnancy concerns. This personalized body contouring plan aims to enhance the shape and proportions of the hips, waist, buttocks, and thighs, helping mothers reclaim a sculpted physique and confidence.

Reclaim Your Pre-Pregnancy Body

Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive cosmetic procedure designed to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. It involves a combination of body contouring techniques tailored to address common concerns, such as sagging breasts, excess abdominal skin, stubborn fat deposits, and weakened abdominal muscles. Mommy Makeover aims to lift, tighten, and reshape the body, restoring a youthful and proportionate appearance. With this transformative experience, women can regain their confidence and feel rejuvenated after the physical changes brought on by pregnancy and childbirth.

Mommy Makeover Corrects:

  • Sagging or deflated breasts
  • Excess abdominal skin and stretch marks
  • Weakened abdominal muscles
  • Stubborn pockets of fat in various body areas
  • Loss of waistline definition
  • Uneven or disproportionate body contours
  • Changes in breast shape and volume
  • Sagging buttocks or thighs
  • Overall body shape and proportion post-pregnancy

Common Mommy Makeover Procedure:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a common procedure in Mommy Makeover, aimed at enhancing breast size and shape. It involves the placement of implants to increase breast volume and improve overall symmetry. This procedure is suitable for women who have experienced loss of breast fullness or size due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Mehta offers personalized breast augmentation options, such as implants or fat grafting, to help patients achieve their desired aesthetic goals and restore a more balanced breast appearance.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, addresses the changes in the abdominal area caused by pregnancy and childbirth. This surgical technique involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightening the abdominal muscles, resulting in a flatter and more toned midsection. By restoring a more contoured abdominal profile, a tummy tuck helps women regain their pre-pregnancy shape and boost their self-confidence. Dr. Mehta can also use a tummy tuck to remove stretch marks on the midsection.

Breast Lift

A breast lift is a popular procedure that addresses sagging or drooping breasts caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the natural aging process. This surgical technique reshapes and lifts the breasts, repositioning the nipple and areola to a more youthful position. A breast lift restores a firmer and more lifted breast contour by removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue. Dr. Mehta offers personalized breast lift procedures to help women achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated breast appearance.


Liposuction addresses stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Using power-assisted liposuction techniques, Dr. Mehta can effectively remove excess fat from specific areas of the body. In addition to traditional liposuction, Dr. Mehta also provides high-definition liposuction and 360 Lipo, which allow for more refined body sculpting and contouring. These advanced techniques can help women achieve a more toned and proportionate figure, enhancing the overall results of their Mommy Makeover.

Candidates for Mommy Makeover:

  • Women who have experienced changes in their bodies due to pregnancy and childbirth
  • Those who have completed their childbearing and are not planning for future pregnancies
  • Individuals with good overall health and a stable weight
  • Women with realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure
  • Individuals who are bothered by post-pregnancy body changes
  • Those who have tried exercise and diet but have been unable to achieve desired results
  • Women seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy body and enhance their self-confidence

The Recovery Process

During the initial days, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Pain medication and compression garments can help manage these symptoms. It is important to follow a proper care routine, including keeping your incisions clean and dry and avoiding strenuous activities and heavy lifting. You will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Mehta to monitor your progress and ensure your recovery is on track. Gradually, you will notice the results of your Mommy Makeover taking shape, with a more toned, rejuvenated appearance.

Every patient’s recovery experience is unique, and the duration of your healing process may vary. It is crucial to listen to your body and give yourself ample rest and self-care during this time. By following Dr. Mehta’s guidance and allowing your body to heal properly, you can optimize the results of your Mommy Makeover and enjoy the transformation you have worked towards. Remember to be patient and kind to yourself as you embark on this exciting journey toward reclaiming your pre-pregnancy body.
