To Tuck, Or Not To Tuck in NYC?


Tummy tucks are, without a doubt, one of the most popular procedures that new mothers request, and for good reason. New moms are often shocked at how their skin sags, how the shape of their bodies changed after a baby, and it can be overwhelming to see the drastic, often unsightly changes that take place during and after baby. In many cases, new moms are thrilled with their baby, but can’t stand to look in the mirror because of the flabbiness of their once-toned tummy.

The emotional impact of seeing those dramatic body changes can be great, and it’s one of the reasons why so many new moms scramble for gym passes and request information on special diets that are tailored to their needs. While diet and exercise can provide results for most moms, the truth of the matter is that many new moms still end up being frustrated by their tummies. It’s not uncommon for diet and exercise to be somewhat useless against stubborn fat from life as a new mom, nor is it uncommon for moms to have excess skin. When this happens, a tummy tuck is often the best way to get your pre-baby body back.

Though many new moms want a tummy tuck as soon as possible, tummy tucks are often most effective to women who have these characteristics.

  • They are close to their ideal weight. Tummy tucks can be done on women who are overweight, but that doesn’t mean it will look good. Being close to your ideal weight means that you will get a more natural and also more striking look.
  • You’re done having kids. This isn’t mandatory, but generally, if you have a tummy tuck then have yet another child, you’ll end up having to get a 2nd This in itself is not a bad thing as much as it is an inconvenience to the mom.
  • You have already tried “old school” weight loss techniques. Plastic surgery is still expensive and a risky endeavor. Make sure that you have tried to lose weight the old fashioned way. A tummy tuck is still no replacement for exercise.

A quick consultation with a good doctor and the right surgeon will be able to tell you whether or not a tummy tuck will be the best choice for you. If you are a good candidate for a tuck, you’ll then have to see whether an invasive tummy tuck or a body contouring procedure would be better. Either way, having the right procedure done will result in you being able to flaunt a taut tummy without having to feel embarrassed or afraid anymore.

Unsurprisingly, spring is the most common season when tummy tuck consultations are scheduled – and understandably so. With summer and the warmer months of spring just around the corner, it’s absolutely crucial to ensure that you get your tummy tuck before it’s time to bare your midriff. Most tummy tucks need to be scheduled weeks or even months in advance, which is why it’s so important to call a licensed plastic surgeon as soon as possible.

Dr. Douglas Steinbrech has recently released an infographic on mommy makeover. Dr. Steinbrech is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, under the American Board of Medical Specialties. Mommy Makeover was built on the philosophy to perform minimally invasive techniques on all patients in both surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Dr. Steinbrech received top-notch training over an eight-year period at New York University in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. Due to his extensive training and work in the field, the Consumers’ Research Council has dubbed him as one of America’s Top Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Steinbrech breaks down the full Mommy Makeover Package, the benefits, recovery and the individual cost of each procedure in this recently release infographic.

Mommy Makeovers may include:

  • Liposuction
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Feminine Rejuvenation


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech specializes in female liposuction for a mommy makeover. Moms who get a mommy makeover take advantage of liposuction to remove fat from their areas of the body including the waist, hips, thighs and back. Liposuction makes it easy to sculpt a wide range of areas to help your restore your pre-pregnancy figure back.

Breast Augmentation:

Breast augmentation is a procedure that can help restore and/or improve the shape, size and beauty of breasts, helping women feel more confident about their looks and achieve a better quality of life. It is the most commonly requested procedure among women and the most uniquely customized through pre-operative consultations. Through the various concerns revolving around implant material, size, shape, etc, Dr. Steinbrech will provide all of the options, treatments, and techniques to make sure you are electing the right procedure to meet your needs, expectations, and lifestyle.

Patients undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons, including balancing breast size, compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy or surgery, and correcting a congenital breast defect.They can be beneficial to anyone whose breasts have lost their shape and firmness because of weight loss, breast feeding, age or any other factors. Moms from all over are considering breast augmentation, breast lift and other breast enhancement procedures as part of a mommy makeover.

Tummy Tuck:

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is the surgical procedure for removal of excess skin or fatty deposits from the abdomen. Dr. Steinbrech offers tummy tuck procedures exclusively or as designed in a Mommy Makeover Package. A tummy tuck after pregnancy helps women regain their post-maternity stomachs to permanently restore firmness, tightness and remove any loose skin caused by weakened or separated muscles.

Diet and exercise alone are not necessarily always a cure all for our weight control and weight loss goals. Many individuals strive to achieve their target objectives through the standard and obvious methods and they often plateau. Some of our patient’s have expressed to us their frustration and that they’ have tried everything but their abdominal region is still not as in shape as they desire. The results are not reflecting the effort. New mothers may also find it difficult to fix physical changes as a result of their pregnancy. For those with stubborn belly fat or excess skin a tummy tuck is the procedure to opt for and explore. Abdominoplastysurgery aims to contour the middle and or lower abdominal region.

Feminine Rejuventation:

While many women are too shy to discuss loose vaginal tissues, unsatisfactory or painful intercourse, or an enlarged labia, these are not uncommon concerns for women post pregnancy.

The most common treatments for female rejuvenation includes Vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation and tightening) and Labiaplasty (labia reduction and beautification). While vaginoplasties are most often on women after childbirth, labiaplasties are requested by women of all ages, from the young woman with large labia who is concerned about her appearance in a bathing suit, to the patient who has lost a lot of weight and now finds herself with a lot of extra tissue that just won’t go away.

Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty can be performed at the same time or in combination with other common Plastic and Cosmetic procedures such as Breast Enhancement or Reduction, Abdominoplasty, or Liposuction.

Each procedure provides a solution to reclaim your body back!

3 Reasons You Should Get a Mommy Makeover


Pregnancy is a very special and memorable experience in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, it can be hard on your body, causing you to not feel or look like your old self after your baby is born. Even with diet and exercise, it can be difficult to return to your pre-pregnancy shape. You may experience breast sag, or excess skin near your abdomen. The Mommy Makeover procedure is a combination of surgeries that can help you to restore your body post-pregnancy. Most women who undergo the Mommy Makeover experience the following:

  • Confidence boost. Pregnancy can do a number to your pre-pregnancy body. Post-pregnancy you have sagging breasts, excess skin from where the abdomen was stretched, gained weight, etc. Even with diet and exercise, you may struggle to lose the excess weight. Women who undergo the Mommy Makeover are very happy with the results, and therefore gain their confidence back. It can be emotionally hard on women to go from looking fit to throwing a fit because you lost your pre-pregnancy body.
  • Fit into pre-pregnancy clothes. You used to be size A and now you’re size B. Insert an array of numbers. It happens to nearly every woman who undergoes pregnancy. Some women are able to lose the weight post-pregnancy, and others struggle. Every woman’s body is different. If you’re one of the women who just can’t lose the weight, no matter how much you diet or exercise, Mommy Makeover can help you to fit into your pre-pregnancy clothes.
  • Improved intimacy. When your confidence is down, you’re intimacy can be too. You may feel as though you don’t want your man to even look at you naked (even though he will love you no matter what). With a Mommy Makeover, many women experience a boost in confidence, and therefore improved intimacy.

You don’t have to wish you had your pre-pregnancy body back. With a Mommy Makeover you can slim down, improve your confidence, and your intimacy. Also, you can enjoy your time with your family, without worrying another second about how you look.
