Good Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Dr. Narasimhan takes the time necessary during your consultation to perform a thorough private examination and bases his professional recommendation on that exam, combined with your cosmetic goals. Cosmetic surgery may seem like a big step, but often the moms who choose our practice tell us after their surgery that they should have gotten started even sooner. If you find yourself wishing you could still enjoy the looks of your younger years, this procedure may be a good fit for you. Each patient has unique aesthetic concerns, but good candidates for a mommy makeover share most of these characteristics:
- Breasts that sag, have lost volume, or remain overly large after pregnancy
- Excess skin and fat on the abdomen that doesn't go away despite exercise and good nutritional habits
- Other concerns related to pregnancy, such as excess fat accumulated on the limbs or in the neck
- No plans to have additional children
- No problems maintaining a stable weight, within about 10 pounds of goal weight
As with any cosmetic surgery, it's also important for candidates to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about their results.

- Personalizes combination of procedures to restore or improve upon pre-pregnancy appearance
- Often performs tummy tuck and breast augmentation; tummy tuck and breast lift; and occasionally breast surgery and liposuction

Your Mommy Makeover Options
Cosmetic surgery can help you get your body back on track. Dr. Narasimhan has years of training and experience safely and successfully performing these procedures, and looks forward to helping you. These are the procedures that he typically combines for mommy makeover patients, although your plan will be customized to your needs.
Pregnancy not only stretches your abdominal skin, but it also often results in stretched and separated muscles. A tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, results in a flatter stomach by tightening excess skin and repairing the abdominal muscles. Dr. Narasimhan makes a horizontal incision as low as possible so it is hidden beneath the bikini line for most patients. A tummy tuck also usually involves repositioning the belly button.
Liposuction is useful not only to reduce excess fat as part of a tummy tuck, but Dr. Narasimhan also uses the procedure to shape natural-looking contours elsewhere on the body and ensure the results aren't bumpy or misshapen. That's why he prefers to call it liposculpture, which more accurately describes the artistic element that a trained and experienced surgeon uses to get excellent results.
Sagging, deflated breasts are common after pregnancy and nursing. A bra provides support, but only a breast lift provides a solution. A breast lift restores a youthful perkiness to the breasts and repositions the nipples.
Losing volume in the breasts is very common after pregnancy, so breast augmentation is a good option. Some patients see the mommy makeover as an ideal time to pursue a long-lasting desire for larger breasts. Many mothers also have both lost volume and some sagging, so Dr. Narasimhan recommends a combined lift-augmentation.
For some moms, their post-pregnancy breasts remain much larger than what they were used to before having children. While some women see that as a benefit, for others the overly large breasts can cause neck and back pain and interfere with an active lifestyle. Breast reduction, which is usually combined with a lift, reduces excess skin and tissue on the breast.
The hormone changes women experience during and after pregnancy often emerge as skin conditions. Melasma, often called the "pregnancy mask," is the darkening of the skin around the mouth, cheeks, and forehead. Acne and rashes are also common at this time. Our medical spa treatments can alleviate these concerns, and we can also add simple BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers injections for a quick facial rejuvenation.
