Mommy Makeover in New York, NY

During pregnancy, women’s bodies go through unique and often permanent changes to accommodate their growing baby. After giving birth, many women struggle to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. This struggle can take a toll on the self-esteem of many moms, and diet and exercise can only take some women so far. The Mommy Makeover combines breast and body procedures that are specifically designed to treat the enhancement needs of moms.

Women considering a Mommy Makeover should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their results. If you need a Mommy Makeover, you may require correction for one or more of the following conditions:

  • Volume loss in the breasts
  • Sagging breast tissue
  • A tummy pooch
  • Excess abdominal skin
  • Unwanted deposits of fat

Mommy Makeover Procedures

A Mommy Makeover is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. Dr. Cha customizes each Mommy Makeover to fit the unique needs of his patients. You may not require each procedure outlined in the Mommy Makeover. The goal of your procedure is to enhance your body and restore a more youthful, attractive you.

Recovery and Results


The length of your recovery will vary depending on the extent of correction required to achieve your results. You will experience swelling, bruising, and redness in your treatment areas. Oral pain medication will be provided to help ease any discomfort. Patients are required to rest for several days following their procedure. You may wear a series of compression garments if you undergo any body contouring procedures.

Most patients can return to work within one to two weeks following their procedure. You should be able to resume your regular exercise routine, with your doctor’s permission, after four weeks. Most major swelling should subside by six weeks, at which time your final results will become visible.


The Mommy Makeover provides patients with quality, long-lasting results. However, the life of body contouring procedures is dependent on your lifestyle following your surgery. To maintain your results, live a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise. Additional pregnancies following your procedure may affect the quality of your results and are, therefore, not recommended.

— Scarring

Dr. Cha takes great care to place incisions in discreet locations that don’t result in extensive visible scarring. However, depending on your body’s natural healing process and the correction required to achieve your results, you may develop some mild scarring. Any scarring that does develop is likely to fade over time.
