Mothers experiencing the less appealing physical effects of pregnancy, such as excess abdominal tissue or pockets of isolated fat, can often benefit from a comprehensive Mommy Makeover. This treatment can include multiple procedures to enhance and contour the post-baby body. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Charles Perry, MD, customizes every Mommy Makeover to address the particular concerns of the patient, and can incorporate body, breast, and facial procedures into the treatment depending on the patient’s goals.

Many of our patients ask, “When is the right time to get a Mommy Makeover?” While this is a very common question, the answer can vary. The general rule in the cosmetic surgery world is that mothers should wait a minimum of six months after giving birth to undergo a Mommy Makeover, as the body needs to “stabilize”, or return to its regular hormonal and physical state, after delivery. That said, Dr. Perry urges patients to remember that every mother recuperates from childbirth according to her own timeline. As such, while some mothers may only need to wait six months, others may require a longer recovery period following childbirth.

Additionally, these factors should be considered before you decide it’s time for a Mommy Makeover:
