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.

"Still me, only younger! My main fear when I considered a lower facelift was not looking like myself after surgery. But while the surgery did change how I looked in terms of how old I looked, I was tremendously happy with how natural and refreshed my face looked. My skin is more taught, the sagginess in my neck is gone and the jowls are gone. Dr. Rosenbaum far exceeded my expectations in skill and professionalism. I am very happy with the results. I look 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Rosenbaum!"- G. / Healthgrades / Feb 07, 2019

"(Double mastectomy reconstruction)Dr. Rosenbaum is an outstanding doctor and brilliant surgeon! My medical situation was complicated, resulting in a double mastectomy performed a year apart. The outcome of my final breast implant surgery is absolutely ASTONISHING!!! My new breasts are perfectly symmetrical, look very real and so natural, that I can hardly believe it myself. I highly recommend Dr. Rosenbaum and consider him the BEST plastic surgeon in Miami, if not the entire world!!!"- W.H. / Healthgrades / Jan 15, 2019

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.
