While having children is one of the greatest gifts life can bring, the physical changes brought on by pregnancy and breast-feeding often takes a toll on one’s appearance that can ultimately prove difficult to reverse with diet and exercise alone. A “mommy makeover” is a combination of surgical and/or non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures designed to get you back to your pre-pregnancy figure. Dr. Louis P. Bucky, our board-certified plastic surgeon in Philadelphia, can perform a customized mommy makeover that includes treatments to address your specific needs. These can include body contouring procedures, facial rejuvenation, breast enhancement, and other options. Dr. Bucky can help you reach your goals with beautiful, natural-looking results that give you greater confidence in the way you look.

Your Individual Goals
Since each mommy makeover patient has unique concerns, Dr. Bucky uses the consultation process as a time to carefully listen to your needs. Together, you and Dr. Bucky will design a treatment plan that will optimize the results of your procedure. In addition, Dr. Bucky guides each of his patients through the various surgical options available, explaining all aspects of the treatment process and answering your questions to ensure you are making informed decisions about your health and your body.
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
The mommy makeover is a highly customizable procedure that can include a number of different options, depending on your goals. Treatments for a mommy makeover often include two or more of the following procedures:
This can include breast lift to tighten the breast skin and restore a youthful “perkiness”; breast augmentation to replace lost volume; or breast reduction to address breasts that may be too large for your individual body frame. Also, breast augmentation can be combined with breast lift to correct sagging and restore lost volume at the same time.
During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are typically pulled apart and stretched. Excess skin can also accumulate in the abdominal area, and it can be very difficult to get rid of on your own. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is performed to eliminate the excess skin and fat around the abdomen and tighten the underlying muscles for a firmer, more toned appearance.
Liposuction can remove fat deposits developed during and after pregnancy that have proven resistant to standard weight loss methods. This procedure can be performed virtually anywhere on the body. CoolSculpting®, a non-surgical liposuction alternative, may also be beneficial for patients primarily looking to reduce excess fat around the midsection.
Some women also choose to include BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, or laser treatments for an even more complete rejuvenation that addresses signs of facial aging or fatigue. A mommy makeover can ultimately give you a slimmer silhouette, a more contoured body shape, firmer breasts, and a rejuvenated appearance.
Since we strive to personalize each mommy makeover to meet your individual aesthetic goals, the recovery time for the procedure will vary from patient to patient. The unique combination of procedures you elect for your mommy makeover will dictate whether your treatment will take place during a single operation or staged over more than one session. During the initial consultation process, Dr. Bucky will be able to provide clear expectations for your recovery based on your surgical goals and the resulting treatment plan.
