Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover in NYC

A “Mommy Makeover” is a set of procedures designed to restore a woman after her body has undergone the strain of childbearing. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steinbrech, is an expert in mommy makeover procedures in NYC including breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck surgery, as well as liposuction. Mommy makeovers are performed to restore and rejuvenate post-baby bodies and help women regain their sense of self-confidence.

A mommy makeover is the perfect solution for women who have recently given birth and want to restore their body to the way it was before pregnancy.

It’s a combination of procedures, meant to tackle the usual problems that may occur after pregnancy – sagging breasts, less definition in the waist, pockets of fat in the abdomen area, stretch marks and other similar changes of the body. These can often be diminished with just a few procedures – the breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction. These are absolutely safe and minimally invasive, helping women restore their youthful looks quickly after giving birth.

Breast Lift

One of the more common effects of pregnancy are sagging breasts, along with drooping nipples. This can be easily solved with a breast life, otherwise called a mastopexy, which is performed by trimming the excess skin and tightening the supporting tissues, which helps to attain a youthful, firmer look. The breasts become firmer and are higher on the chest.

Breast Reduction

Although usually breasts return to their normal size after being enlarged during pregnancy, in some cases the breasts remain larger than they would desire. This is where a breast reduction surgery can be of help – they can help return the breasts to their natural, smaller size, along with helping return the breasts to proper shape and form.

Tummy Tuck

The abdomen area is one of the places that take the most damage during pregnancy, and thus requires the most attention. Stretching and weakening of the skin and surrounding muscles around the waist and tummy is the main problem – the loose skin and stretch marks might become permanent, if not for a surgical procedure, called a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

It helps to shape the abdomen and waist by removing the droopy skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. This results in a firm tummy and a defined waistline.


Sometimes pregnancy can result in pockets of fat that are very hard to get rid of naturally, because they might not respond to exercise and diet. This may lead to an undefined waistline, and then the only real solution is a liposuction. This procedure removes undesirable, resistant fat from the abdomen area, along with the waist, hips, thighs and other surrounding areas, if needed. This can help to fix areas of the body that don’t naturally return to the shape they were in before the pregnancy.

Liposuction can be performed using a few different methods, like an ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (UAL) and suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL). In both cases, fluid is injected into the area that needs to be treated, then an incision is made in the most indistinct area possible, and a small tube (cannula) is used to suck the fat out of the area.

Cost of Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover is a combination of several procedures and the price will varies depending on the needs of each patient. Breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, and liposuction may be required. Mommy makeover prices in NYC area could vary from $15,000 to $25,000 depending on the surgeon and surgeries being performed.
