Mommy Makeover Surgery
What is a "Mommy Makeover"?
For most patients, a mommy makeover involves a tummy tuck surgery combined with breast augmentation surgery. Additionally, liposuction may be performed. Throughout the consultation process Belmont Plastic Surgery’s renowned Dr. Feledy will work with you to create a personalized surgical plan to fit your specific needs and goals.
Am I an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover?
If you're a mom who is bothered by the changes brought on by pregnancy, then a mommy makeover may be right for you. The surgery is designed to address problems such as a protruding tummy, persistent areas of body fat, or sagging or deflated breasts. Patients are typically advised to wait at least six months after childbirth before considering a mommy makeover.
What will happen during the consultation process?
During your consultation with leading Washington DC plastic surgeon, Dr. Feledy, he will determine which procedures will help you regain a more youthful body shape. He will also be available to answer any questions you have, as well as discuss the procedures in detail, so you can create a customized treatment plan. You’ll be confident that Belmont Plastic Surgery provides the safest mommy makeover Washington DC has to offer.
As part of the process, Dr. Feledy will examine the following to establish what physically occurred with your body as a result of motherhood and what your goals are for the mommy makeover. Before considering this surgery, one should also consider:
- Being finished with breast feeding is essential.
- It is recommended that you get a mommy makeover once you have decided no further child births are in your future.
- Setup enough help and time to recover from the surgery as it will effect your normal schedule for several weeks.
“Helping a mother who feels she's lost some of her beauty as a result of motherhood is a rewarding part of my job. I'm a father and greatly respect the dedication and physical stress a mother's body goes through in pregnancy. The fact that, with a mommy makeover we can restore a mother back to feeling beautiful and more confident after such a stress is something all mothers should know.Dr. Jules Feledy

Is breast augmentation part of a "mommy makeover"?
Commonly a part of a mommy makeover, breast augmentation surgery can help new mothers achieve fuller, more symmetrical breasts. Breast Augmentation involves using breast implants, saline or silicone, or fat (referred to as fat transfer breast augmentation) to increase the size of your breasts or restore breast volume that has been lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. The surgery can improve your body proportion, feminine appearance and self-confidence.
Is a tummy tuck part of a "mommy makeover"?
At the core of a mommy makeover is the tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty. This surgery removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. This is typically a must as a mother's body will have changed after giving birth. A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control.
It is fairly common for a separation of the stomach muscles to occur during pregnancy, known as rectus diastases. This can result in a bulge in the lower abdominal area that no amount of exercise or dieting will resolve. What has happened is the actual stomach muscles are no longer attached properly in the center of your stomach. A properly done tummy tuck surgery is the only way to address this physical change that can occur as a result of pregnancy. One way to tell if you have rectus diastesus is to attempt a sit-up. If your stomach area bulges abnormally when doing so there is a chance this you could need this surgery to address it.
How often is liposuction part of a mommy makeover"?
Used less often than a breast augmentation and tummy tuck, liposuction can be an essential procedure in restoring the beautiful look a mother wants to achieve. Liposuction targets fat deposits that are particularly resistant to exercise and dietary changes, and is frequently used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. If needed, the doctor can perform liposuction during your mommy makeover to help slim down specific areas of your body.
