Becoming a mom can cause several unwanted changes in your body shape. Fortunately, there are ways to address these aesthetic concerns and restore your ideal figure. If you’re concerned with sagging, stretched-out skin and stubborn fat after childbirth, a Mommy Makeover with board-certified plastic surgeon Neal Goldberg, MD may be right for you.
A Mommy Makeover is a series of surgical procedures that primarily work to restore a youthful appearance in the body and breasts. Some patients aim to recreate their pre-pregnancy body, while others simply wish to address multiple aesthetic concerns in one treatment plan. The results can be very transformative, with some women remarking that they look and feel more attractive after surgery than they did before childbirth. The customized treatment plan is developed based on an open discussion of what you hope to achieve, which allows Dr. Goldberg to personalize a Mommy Makeover according to each patient’s goals.
A Mommy Makeover can benefit any patient who would like to improve the unfavorable changes caused by aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuation, which typically include depleted breast volume, a loss of shape in the breasts, fat accumulation, the development of excess skin, and lax abdominal musculature. General requirements for any cosmetic surgery include:
Although the treatment plan is called a “Mommy Makeover,” this surgical option can be a solution for any patient who wishes to aesthetically enhance more than one region of the body — even if they do not necessarily have children. Dr. Goldberg can further advise you on the best procedures to achieve your goals after evaluating your concerns in person.
Since every woman’s body is uniquely affected by pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, a Mommy Makeover is tailored for your needs and desires. During a consultation with Dr. Goldberg, you both can create a plan for surgery that addresses your individual concerns.

The procedures above treat the regions most affected by pregnancy and nursing, such as the breasts and the body contours.

In fact, minimally invasive treatments and med spa services are often the perfect non-surgical complements to reduce wrinkles and minimize facial aging.
