One of the greatest gifts in life, children, can also do the body the most harm. In the process of making room for your little one, you may have found that you put on fat and your muscles and skin have stretched. The truth for many new and experienced mothers is that they now lack confidence with their post-baby body. The Mommy Makeover is designed to restore firm skin and toned, youthful contours along with your self-esteem.
Pregnancy and nursing can decrease the volume of a woman’s breasts. Breast augmentation uses implants to increase the size and reshape breasts that are either naturally too small or that have lost adequate volume. Gaining larger breasts helps many mothers feel sexier.
Some patients may also benefit from adding a breast lift to the breast augmentation.
The swelling of the breasts during pregnancy and breastfeeding can weaken the breast tissue and lead to eventual sagging. Breast lift surgery is best suited for women who have a pleasing breast size but whose tissues have begun to droop. Lifting the breasts can restore them to a perky, youthful projection.
A breast augmentation can be added to a breast lift to improve fullness and volume.
The abdominal muscles and skin stretch to accommodate a growing baby. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to restore tissue elasticity through diet and exercise. Tummy tuck surgery tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin. This helps moms reclaim their toned, pre-pregnancy bellies.
It is common to store fat during pregnancy that is difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise. Liposuction uses a thin tube to suction out fatty tissue that has accumulated around the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and arms. The removal of this fat helps restore a slimmer, youthful silhouette.

Mommy Makeover - Patient 1
This 35 year old mother underwent silicone breast augmentation to restore fullness and cleavage to her breasts, combined with a tummy tuck to tighten the abdominal skin and flatten the tummy (mommy makeover). The first set of photos are 18 days after surgery. The small scabs on the breasts resolved quickly. The other post-operative photos are 2 years after surgery, although skin markings from underwear are seen, the scars on the breasts and tummy are barely visible.
Mommy Makeover - Patient 2
This 28 year old mother complained of very small, empty, widely spaced breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. She was also unhappy about the saggy, wrinkled skin on her tummy. She underwent breast augmentation combined with a mini-tummy tuck, with marked improvement.
Mommy Makeover - Patient 3
This young mother complained of droopy, empty breasts and significant laxity and tissue excess throughout the tummy. She’s extremely happy following breast augmentation combined with a breast lift and a tummy tuck. The red scars fade with time and become almost imperceptible.
Breast Augmentation - Patient 1
This 24 year old with very little breast tissue received 350 cc smooth round implants using a peri-areolar incision. Despite the lack of breast tissue, her result looks very natural.
Breast Augmentation - Patient 5
This 25 year old patient underwent augmentation with 400 cc silicone implants using peri-areolar incisions.
Breast Lift - Patient 5
This 33 year old complained of empty, sagging breasts after breastfeeding. A concentric mastopexy (breast lift) was combined with silicone breast augmentation. This type of breast lift involves only a scar around the areola, with no scars on the breasts themselves. The red color of the scars continues to fade with time, and the wrinkles around the areola smooth out.
Breast Lift - Patient 8
This patient underwent a concentric mastopexy in combination with breast augmentation. This type of mastopexy results in less scarring on the breast. The scar around the areola will continue to fade over time.
Tummy Tuck - Patient 1
This 26 year old mother underwent abominoplastsy (tummy tuck) combined with liposuction of the abdomen, back, hips, and thighs. The postoperative photos were taken approximately 2 1/2 months after surgery.
Tummy Tuck - Patient 6
This 39 year old presented with severe abdominal skin and fat excess, creating large, loose rolls. Her abdominal contour, and her ability to exercise and be active, were signiﬁcantly improved following an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). The scar will continue to fade with time.
Liposuction - Patient 2
21 year old female treated with abdominal liposuction.
Liposuction - Patient 5
This 30 year old female received liposuction to the back, ﬂanks and hips with signiﬁcant improvement.
I feel that the whole experience was wonderful I wouldn’t change a thing. I researched a couple of Doctors in the area and had a couple of consultations but Dr. Taleisnik made me feel very comfortable when I meet him and didn’t push procedures that I did not need. This is why I picked him. This has got to be the BEST thing I have ever done for myself. Dr. Taleisnik is wonderful I could not have picked a better doctor. He listened to me and did only what was required and nothing more just for the sake of it$$$$. I had both a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation. Dr. Taleisnik was very attentive to be before and especially after my procedure and keep me very comfortable after the procedure. I love my improved body thanks to Dr. Taleisnik. I would definitely recommend him. Thanks again Dr. Taleisnik for improving my life.
$9,000 - $15,000
The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies depending on the number and extent of procedures you desire. Facility, anesthesia, and equipment fees can all affect the ultimate price of your Mommy Makeover. On average, the price of a Mommy Makeover ranges between $9,000 and $15,000.
A Mommy Makeover usually includes a tummy tuck and some form of breast surgery, and other procedures may be included as well. Performing more than one surgery at a time is much less expensive than performing them separately. In addition, we are currently offering a $1,000 discount when liposuction is added to a Mommy Makeover (tummy tuck and breast surgery).
It is rare that insurance will cover the cost of a Mommy Makeover. Please email us and we will be happy to answer your financing questions.
General anesthesia makes you unconscious so you are unable to feel pain during medical procedures. All surgeries are performed in outpatient surgery centers accredited at the highest levels. All anesthesia is provided by board-certified anesthesiologists.
Recovery time refers to the period immediately following surgery. This time is critical to your body's healing and involves several milestones along the way. During your recovery period, you may be limited with what you can lift and how fast you can move. Make sure that you have a supportive friend or partner to help run after your kid(s). It is important to follow your doctor's recommendations to achieve optimal results from your procedure. Recovery times will vary depending on the number and extent of the procedures performed.
