Mommy Makeover
Latham, NY

Women who are looking to improve their body after childbirth can often benefit from a mommy makeover. Ideal candidates will be in good health, at their ideal body weight, and be finished having children, as future pregnancy can undo mommy makeover results. The best way to determine if a mommy makeover is right for you is through a consultation with Dr. Chao.

Who is a candidate?

A mommy makeover is done to restore the appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. Many women notice changes in their post-pregnancy bodies and wish to address these areas, including the breasts, abdomen, and waist. A mommy makeover can include a number of plastic surgery procedures to meet the individual’s aesthetic goals.


The Mommy Makeover Procedure

A mommy makeover is highly individualized and will include the plastic surgery procedures that will address your individual problem areas. By combining the procedures into a single operation, this approach is both safe and cost-effective. These procedures may include:

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation can help to enlarge the breasts or correct asymmetrical breasts using breast implants. Patients can choose from silicone or saline breast implants, as well as a number of incision options to meet their aesthetic goals. Autologous fat transfer is also an option for certain patients.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck can address excess skin and fat on the abdomen, which is stretched during pregnancy. During this procedure, a separated or weakened abdominal wall can also be corrected for a flatter, smoother abdominal appearance.


Liposuction is often done to contour the body and remove any stubborn fat deposits that stick around after pregnancy.

Results and Recovery

Because a mommy makeover is a single stage procedure, there is a single recovery period. The length of recovery will depend on the procedures that have been done, which will vary for each patient. However, full recovery following a tummy tuck combined with a breast augmentation can take up to several months. Be sure to follow Dr. Chao’s specific post-op instructions to ensure optimal results.
