Mommy Makeover Surgeon Helps You Get Back the Body You Deserve
Pregnancy can take a toll on our bodies and affect our breasts, stomach, legs and more. Sometimes, these changes don’t go away even with a healthy diet and exercise. Do you look in the mirror and long for your pre-baby body? You might also consider a Mommy Makeover to get back in shape.
What does a Mommy Makeover entail? Some of our most popular Mommy Makeover packages typically combine the following procedures:
Your Mommy Makeover can be tailored to your specific wishes and needs. During your consultation, New Orleans plastic surgeon Dr. Sadeghi will help you choose the right procedures for achieving your goals.
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
A breast augmentation involves making an incision either around the areola (the dark part of your nipple), under the breast, or under the arm. Then, sacs filled either with saline water or silicone gel are inserted into the breast. The sacs can be inserted either above or below the pectoral muscle. Dr. Sadeghi can recommend which types of procedures will be best for your body and desired outcome.
Typically, a breast lift will be performed by making a cut around the areola, along with removing with some small areas of tissue in order to tighten the breast.
In a tummy tuck, Dr. Sadeghi will make an incision below the navel, remove excess skin, and pull the skin tight over the abdomen. A tummy tuck also involves a tightening of abdominal muscles to give your stomach a toned look.
Finally, if you opt in for liposuction, Dr. Sadeghi will work with you to decide how much stubborn body fat you want removed and from where.
The procedures are usually done at the same time to minimize the time spent under anesthesia, so the surgery usually takes about three hours, which is reasonable according to many surgeons.
How Much Will a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The average cost of a Mommy Makeover can vary widely. Using statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the cost of a Mommy Makeover ranges between $9,000 and $20,000. Since your Mommy Makeover will be tailored to your body specifically, contact the Sadeghi Center for Plastic Surgery to get a personalized consultation with Dr. Sadeghi.

What Can I Improve with a Mommy Makeover?
Sometimes women feel insecure about their bodies after pregnancy, and this can affect their self esteem, social interactions, and even mental health. Below are three major physical benefits of a Mommy Makeover ao you can go back to feeling great about the way you look:
1. Firmer and Fuller Breast Appearance
Pregnancy often results in sagging, deflated, or flatter breasts, which can affect the contour of your body shape and leave you feeling insecure. By lifting and augmenting the breast tissue, Dr. Sadeghi can make your breasts appear dramatically more supple, more attractive, and younger.
2. Flatter and More Toned Abdomen
By tightening muscles and removing loose skin and fat from your abdomen, a tummy tuck can make your stomach look flat and toned, improve your posture, and help you feel more confident.
3. More Contoured Body Shape
Fat removal from the most stubborn places—the waist, buttocks, thighs, and arms—can make you look healthier and younger and give you a boost of self-confidence that you deserve.
Is a Mommy Makeover Right For Me?
You may want to consider a Mommy Makeover if:
- Your breasts sag, are smaller, or have gotten longer and flatter
- Your nipples sag below the bottom of your breast line
- You have stubborn belly fat (or other fat) that doesn’t go away with diet and exercise
- The skin around your abdomen sags
- You have stretch marks that don’t go away
How Long Does It Take to Recover After a Mommy Makeover?
After your Mommy Makeover procedure, your body will need extra support around your surgery sites to help in the healing process. You’ll need to wear a support bra and compression garment to keep down swelling and reducing pain. You might wear these garments between six weeks and a few months. To help drain excess fluids from your surgery sites, Dr. Sadeghi might place a small, thin tube under your skin.
Dr. Sadeghi wants to make sure you have the most comfortable recovery process possible and will make sure to give you instructions including:
- How to take care of your surgery incisions
- Medications you will take afterwards
- Health signs to watch for
- When to schedule a followup appointment
Make sure to follow the instructions from Dr. Sadeghi very carefully. For some parts of your procedure, such as the breast lift, results will be apparent right away and swelling will take about a week to go away. For other parts, such as the tummy tuck or liposuction, it might take a few months to see results and for swelling to go down. The marks from the surgery incisions will fade over time.
Although it might take a while for swelling and bruising to go down, you should be able to resume your daily activities relatively soon. Most patients will be able to return to work anywhere from two days to four weeks after the procedure.
Will My Mommy Makeover Leave Scars?
Because the surgeon will need to make incisions in the skin for your Mommy Makeover, there is a risk that the surgery will leave scars. There are, however, ways to help decrease scarring.
One way is by working with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Sadeghi. He knows ways to reduce your risk of complications that may cause scarring before and after surgery.
Keep in mind that not everyone scars the same after surgery. Dr. Sadeghi can help you decide the best surgery options for you. As a general rule, the fewer operations you have performed, the fewer scars you will have after surgery.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Below are a few of the most commonly asked questions about getting a Mommy Makeover:
How painful is a Mommy Makeover?
You should experience only mild pain after the Mommy Makeover procedures. Many patients experience some discomfort and soreness, but only the pain associated with getting a bruise. This pain can be lessened with pain medications. Severe pain is unusual and may be a sign something is wrong–if you are feeling significant pain, please contact Dr. Sadeghi’s staff.
Removing your support bandages, compression garment, or bra after surgery can lead to more pronounced pain. You may also interfere with the results by not wearing a bra soon after your breast lift. It is highly recommended that you wear a bra for most of the day and evening.
Will I still be able to breastfeed after my surgeries?
Yes, most patients can still breastfeed after a breast lift or breast augmentation because these surgeries do not involve removing the nipple. Also, the inserted implant sacs do not affect the breast ducts. Because the ducts are left intact, the breasts can maintain their normal function.
Will a breast lift or augmentation make my areola smaller?
This is up to the patient. Some choose to make the areola smaller during the breast lift procedure to get the desired appearance. However, this change isn’t necessary. Dr. Sadeghi can help you know how to best achieve the results you want and help you know what to expect after surgery.
Other treatments that patients often add to their Mommy Makeover include:
- Skin tighteners
- Cellulite treatments
- Stretch mark improvement
