Before & After
Let’s start with the basics
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical procedures to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies or even improve on their original body type to achieve the appearance they’ve always desired. While this procedure can be a mixture of multiple surgeries, there are three primary areas that most moms focus on to achieve tighter bodies: breasts, stomach, and stubborn fat. Some of the more common procedures that are performed in a Mommy Makeover include:
Breast Augmentation: Some women have never been satisfied with the size or shape of their breasts but use a Mommy Makeover to finally achieve a larger and more shapely bust.
Breast Lift: A breast lift can do some miraculous changes to your breast’s shape and appearance. While it won’t be as extreme of a result as breast augmentation, a lift can give your chest a more youthful and perky appearance.
Liposuction: Liposuction is often used during a Mommy Makeover to extract any fatty bulges and lumps from areas not treated by the tummy tuck or breast enhancement, such as the back or thighs.
Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck procedure tightens lax abdominal muscles, trims the waistline, and eliminates stretch marks as well as sagging skin from the belly.
We will work with you from beginning to end to make sure that you are happy with your results and are doing everything possible to maximize the surgical benefits.

What’s the First Step?
The first step in getting a Mommy Makeover is to schedule your consultation at William Samson, MD, in New York City. When you come in for your appointment, you and Dr. Samson will discuss your goals and medical history. He will answer any questions you may have, evaluate your desired treatment areas, and help you decide which procedures will work best for you. You must be open and honest with our team when discussing your medical history because the information you provide will help avoid any unnecessary risks. Once we have collected all of the information necessary and you agree to your surgery plan, our Patient Coordinator will help you find a date and time that best suits you for your procedure.
Who are the Best Candidates for a Mommy Makeover?
The best candidates for a NYC Mommy Makeover are women who:
- Are at their ideal body weight
- Are finished with childbearing
- Are in good medical health
- Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
Please inform Dr. Samson if you have plans to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight in the future. If you have had previous abdominal surgery, scarring may limit the results of your abdominoplasty or breast surgery.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
After your surgery, your incisions will be covered with a gauze or bandage to prevent infection. Immediately following surgery, you will be monitored by the nursing team while the anesthesia wears off. Once Dr. Samson releases you, you will be able to return home and recover in peace, but you will need a family member or friend available to give you a ride and stay with you for at least the first few hours of recovery. It’s always best to have an adult caretaker available to help you for the first few days of recovery because you will be sore and unable to lift anything heavy. Your recovery time and experience will vary depending on which surgeries you had, If you have any hesitations about your recovery time, please discuss them with Dr. Samson and consider getting your Mommy Makeover at a time when you will need to be less hands-on with your child.
For additional information on your recovery, please look at the aforementioned procedure pages on our website for a better understanding of what to expect.
