About the Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a highly personalized combination of cosmetic surgery procedures performed in conjunction with one another to help a woman return to her pre-pregnancy physique. During a private consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, your aesthetic goals and current shape will be taken into consideration. Dr. Rosenbaum will then suggest a plan of action and candidly discuss your potential results. AtGary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL, we understand our patients' desire to regain the confidence and shape of their pre-baby years and empathize by providing this popular procedure.
During a private consultation, our plastic surgeon will listen to all the concerns each patient has about her body to see if she is a good candidate for these procedures. Many women seeking these treatments and surgeries have:
- Breasts that sag and droop from multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding
- A tummy with bulges of fat that did not go away with after-pregnancy weight loss
- Extra skin on the arms, buttock, thighs that did not bounce back after pregnancy weight
- A less than desirable shape to their breasts or buttocks and need enhancement to fill in the lost volume after baby
- Multiple areas of the body with visible, unattractive stretch marks
The best candidates for the mommy makeover are women who are finished having children. We strongly encourage women considering the mommy makeover to not plan on having more children once the surgeries have taken place, as it will damage the skin by stretching and weight gain and will require more plastic surgeries in the future.

"It's not easy finding a doctor who you can trust these days but I have to say Dr. Rosenbaum exceeded my expectations. At our first meeting he was honest and forthright in what his outcome for my breast augmentation would be. I've had several surgeries and at this point I was a bit hesitant as to what Dr. Rosenbaum was able to fix. After fifteen years of having implants I removed them in December. As you know with age things don't look the same so I opted to put them back in after being out seven months. The results after surgery were amazing!!! I am so happy to have my body back to normal. Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff were very professional and I would recommend him. Especially if you have a challenging case he is your go to doctor to fix it. I'm so grateful for making me look and feel beautiful again."- C.R. / Google / Aug 09, 2018
"At 72...a tummy tuck was not on my bucket list...but 2 abdominal surgeries left me with a large hernia and my general surgeon said I would get the best result by having a plastic surgeon do the "tuck" at the same time. He recommended Dr. Rosenbaum and I am so happy he did. The result is AMAZING! The surgery was more complicated than expected and Dr. R went above and beyond to make sure I had the best result..which I did. I highly recommend him."- B.K. / Healthgrades / Jul 25, 2018
"At the age of 50 the last thing a woman wants to hear is that she has breast cancer, but I was immensely blessed that I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum. He and his staff are a blessing. To me Dr. Rosenbaum is the best surgeon anyone can have. He is very caring and knowledgable and his staff very professional and accommodating to your needs. Look no further, you can not find in Florida a better surgeon than Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff"- E.R. / Healthgrades / May 16, 2018

Nora and Yuolie ROCK!!!!!!!"- A.T. / Healthgrades / Apr 26, 2018
What to Expect
Pregnancy and breastfeeding change many areas of the body, and a mommy makeover will require careful planning and could be implemented in stages. Dr. Rosenbaum has years of experience performing these surgeries in one setting; however, sometimes the health of the patient requires more than one surgery date. The end result is still the same — just expect that some women will have more surgeries than other women and will endure a longer recovery time.
Some of the mommy makeover procedures may include a combination of:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift (with or without implants)
- Tummy Tuck
- Thigh Lift
- Butt Lift
- Arm Lift
- Skin rejuvenation (laser treatments, BOTOX®, fillers)
Dr. Rosenbaum will require an overnight stay for observation in the hospital after having multiple surgeries and being under anesthesia for three or more hours. This is to ensure our patient’s safety and to limit the risk of infection post-op. We will also ensure our mommy makeover patients have the best in recovery care and pain management after the procedure.
New moms love the fact that once the extra skin has been removed and tightened, their stretch marks are drastically reduced. Our practice can minimize the remaining stretch marks with nonsurgical treatments such as lasers, microdermabrasion, and/or chemical peels. This does not mean there will not be surgery scars. As with all plastic surgeries, Dr. Rosenbaum will do his best to minimize scarring with careful incision techniques and placement. While the recovery time does take several months, patients are able to return to a normal routine in about 4 – 6 weeks, but should wait for clearance from Dr. Rosenbaum before starting to exercise again. The entire mommy makeover transformation could take up to a year for recovery. The results are life changing for many women.
