The phrase “mommy makeover” refers to a specific type of cosmetic surgery that aims at addressing the common postpartum complaints such as deflated breasts after breastfeeding and excess skin, or fat in the abdomen area. This particular procedure usually includes tightening up loose areas through abdominoplasty (tummy tuck Baltimore) or breast implants with lift/mastopexy and is often performed during one surgical session.
Mommy makeovers have never been more popular. The procedures are not only cost-effective, but they also allow for the recovery of a mom’s body after childbirth to be sped up as well. Baltimore mommy makeover specialist Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber assures that with his affordable services and board certified anesthesiologists by your side during surgery, you can feel safe knowing everything will go smoothly while taking care of all necessary aspects before and following the procedure: “I work collaboratively with my patients from consultation through post op visits.”
Combining both surgical options in one session has many benefits – time saved on anesthesia exposure and reduced hospital stay times resulting in faster recovery rates than other surgeries alone would provide; it is no wonder why so many mothers are considering these types of procedures.
Reasons for Considering a Mommy Makeover
- Lack of fullness of the breasts after breast feeding
- Sagginess of the breasts after breast feeding
- Desire for an improved shape to your breasts
- Excess skin of the abdomen after childbirth
- Laxity of the muscles of your abdomen after childbirth
Mommy Makeover – General Procedure
During a mommy makeover, Dr. Schreiber will perform a breast lift with our without breast implants to increase the volume of the breasts and to lift the areola and nipple to the best aesthetic position. As far as the decision to undergo placement of implants or not, this will be decided between you and Dr. Schreiber prior to the procedure. A breast lift can be done via several different ways, depending on the extent of the sagginess of your breasts. The incision can only be around the areola to a more involved anchor-type of incision.
For the tummy tuck, Dr. Schreiber will perform this next. This usually involves removing the excess skin of the lower abdomen as well as tightening the abdominal wall muscles. Any stretch marks below your belly button are usually removed as well.

Mommy Makeover – Recovery Process
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Bandages are applied right after surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts and abdomen. Once the bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the surgery. This pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. Dr. Schreiber will also provide you with an abdominal binder after surgery to help with healing and comfort.
