There’s no way around it: pregnancy and childbirth take a major toll on the body. While you have your beautiful children that you would do anything for, the reality is that you have sacrificed the physique that you once had.
Instead of a toned and contoured body, you may have pockets of stubborn fat and loose, sagging skin, which can really make you feel self-conscious about the way other people see you.
The good news is that plastic surgery procedures can help return your body to its pre-baby state, and no procedure is as effective for a total body transformation as a Mommy Makeover.
While you may have heard about Mommy Makeover surgery, you may have some questions about it, including what it entails, how it’s performed, and how much it costs.
In this blog, we will answer these questions to help you better understand this cosmetic procedure so that you can decide if a Mommy Makeover might be right for you.
How Much Is a Mommy Makeover in New York?
As with any cosmetic surgical procedure, the cost of your Mommy Makeover varies with each patient and procedure and is often based on the extent of correction needed.
This is especially true with Mommy Makeover surgery, since it is a customizable combination procedure.
In short, more procedures performed means a higher overall cost, while fewer procedures equal a lower overall cost. Because of this, there is no set price for a Mommy Makeover; however, many Mommy Makeover procedures in New York cost between $7,500 and $20,000.
At your Mommy Makeover consultation, Dr. Koch will be able to provide you with an accurate cost estimate for your specific procedure.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Rather than many cosmetic surgical procedures, which are performed by themselves, a Mommy Makeover is a combination of various plastic surgery procedures that each target a different area of the body.
Because this is a personalized combination procedure, your procedure cost will fluctuate significantly.
Mommy Makeover surgery targets specific concerns caused by the body’s natural changes due to childbearing. During your Mommy Makeover consultation, Dr. Koch will listen to your aesthetic frustrations, and he will examine your body to help you decide which specific procedures will best help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Only then will he be able to provide you with an accurate cost estimate.
Below is a break down of the procedures that can be combined into a Mommy Makeover:
One of the most common concerns that women experience after childbirth is excess fat in different areas of the body. And while some fat can be eliminated by natural means (diet and exercise), pockets of stubborn fat are resistant to anything except plastic surgery.
With liposuction surgery, excess fat can be completely removed from your body (whether it be the midsection, legs, arms, and/or backside), and what’s even better is that the fat is removed permanently.
One of the most troublesome cosmetic areas of the body for moms is the belly. That’s because so many changes happen in this area during pregnancy. Because of the stretching belly skin, many women find themselves left with sagging skin and pockets of fat after their babies are born.
Tummy tuck surgery removes excess fat, tightens underlying muscles, and removes sagging skin in the midsection to help give you that slender and toned abdomen you want!
Along with sagging skin in the midsection, many women find that their breasts are no longer the shape and size they once had (or that they want), which can cause women to feel frustrated and self-conscious. The changes in the breast happen because they expand to allow room for milk to come in, but once that milk is gone, the breasts are left deflated.
Luckily, there are cosmetic breast procedures that can give you the appearance you once had, or the breasts you’ve always wanted.
Breast augmentation surgery improves the size and shape of the breasts with the use of breast implants. At your consultation, you will have the chance to decide which type, size, shape, and texture implant you want so that your results are exactly what you desire.
While augmentation surgery only corrects the size and shape of the breasts, it doesn’t help to correct sagging breasts, which often happens after childbirth and breastfeeding. To correct sagging breasts, breast lift surgery (mastopexy) can be performed, either as a standalone surgery or combined with a breast augmentation. For this procedure, breast tissue will be removed and/or repositioned, and excess skin will be excised to give you a lifted and more youthful appearance to your breasts.
