A Solution for Postpartum Changes in the Abdomen & Breasts

Having a child is one of the most beautiful experiences of your life.

Your body’s ability to carry and birth your baby is a testament to its resilience and power. While the joys of motherhood are vast, one of the tough parts for many moms is the effect pregnancy and giving birth has on their body. Most moms experience significant changes in their body throughout pregnancy and well after giving birth, especially in their abdomen and breasts.


As a mom in one of the most important roles in life, you deserve to feel good in your body. A Mommy Makeover in New York resolves a stretched abdominal wall, excess skin and fat.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Common Concerns for Postpartum Surgery

Pregnancy leads to several changes in the body. The breast, abdomen, and pelvic areas are all impacted. This is why every mommy makeover in NYC is based on your individual needs and anatomy. 

A frequent occurrence for mothers is rectus diastasis, which is stretching of your abdominal wall from carrying a child. This results in a protruding abdomen that you cannot correct with exercise. With a Mommy Makeover, your surgeon can repair the abdominal wall to create a flat midsection.

Your breasts can also change from pregnancy and breastfeeding, typically with volume loss and skin laxity. A breast lift and/or augmentation can restore or enhance your breasts for a rejuvenated appearance.

Breast Augmentation

Learn More

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can significantly impact the size and shape of the breasts. Breast augmentation provides enhancement tailored to each patient’s individual goals to help restore their appearance and confidence. This can be done with implants or your own fat.

Implants can be either saline or silicone. Fat can be removed from areas of the body using liposuction and transferred to the breasts. A combination of these techniques can be done to ensure the most natural results. Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will discuss the benefits of each of these options and help select the one that is best for you.

Breast Lift

Breast lift, or mastopexy, can reshape the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues. Some patients also opt to have a breast augmentation done at the same time to restore fullness.

Nipple Reduction

Many people experience a change in their nipples after pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. Nipple and areola reduction can restore a balanced, aesthetically pleasing look to this personal area.

Tummy Tuck

Learn More

Weight changes during pregnancy can result in loose skin and/or an overstretched abdominal wall, aka “rectus diastasis.” A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, directly tightens the area to improve the overall appearance of the abdomen. 

During this surgery, stretch marks in the area may also be removed.

There are several different kinds of tummy tucks:

  1. Mini tummy tuck: a smaller area of skin and fat below the belly button are removed and the skin is tightened. There is no scar around the belly button 
  2. Traditional tummy tuck: skin from above and below the belly button are addressed leading to a better contour in some patients who have extra skin and fat above the belly button
  3. Reverse tummy tuck: skin from only above the belly button is addressed leading to an improved contour in the upper abdomen. This procedure can be combined with breast surgeries since the scar will be hidden underneath each breast, and the incision can be used to perform both surgeries.

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani to find out which procedure is best for you.

Weight gain during pregnancy can lead to pockets of fat in areas of the body that are hard to target with diet and exercise. Liposuction can restore a slimmer and more contoured silhouette by removing fat from specific areas.

Fat Transfers:

Fat that is removed from liposuction can be used to be transferred to different areas of the body to augment and add volume. For example, fat can be used to improve the shape and size of the breasts, buttocks, and hips. Fat can also be used to be injected into the face, similar to dermal fillers.

Now all the rage in cosmetic surgery; A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure that reshapes and redefines your figure, resulting in a slender and natural body shape. Using your own fat after liposuction, Dr. BBT uses cutting-edge techniques to safely transfer the removed fat into your buttock and hip region. With this combination of strategic liposuction and precise fat transfer, you will unlock your full potential resulting in a harmonious and natural figure.


Aveli Procedure (Cellulite Reduction)

Say goodbye to cellulite, for good. Using a new device that is FDA-approved to reduce cellulite in the back of the thighs and buttock areas. Through a minimally invasive approach, fibrous bands that create dimpling and resistant cellulite are disrupted, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. This is a painless procedure that is done awake, with minimal downtime. This procedure is effective and truly transformative!

Vaginal childbirth causes changes in the appearance and size of the labia. These changes can lead to discomfort while sitting or exercising and during intercourse which leads to unnecessary distress.

A labiaplasty is a common procedure that can relieve discomfort and remove excess tissue from the labia.

Surgery Process

How it Works




You’ll visit our Park Avenue office for a confidential consultation with your surgeon. They will listen to your concerns and goals to develop a personalized plan to address your unique needs.  This can include an abdominoplasty, breast lift, or both.

Based on your goals and level of ptosis, your provider will discuss a breast lift, a lift with augmentation or a breast augmentation alone. He will also recommend the incision pattern that minimizes scarring while getting you the best shape possible.

We highly encourage you to ask questions during your consultation for a Mommy Makeover. Our team will walk you through every step of the procedure and recovery process so you can feel comfortable and confident in your decision.

Your procedure will take place at our in-office OR in Manhattan. The surgery time takes between 2 to 4 hours, depending on the style and complexity of the procedure. Your surgeon will suture together the abdominal muscle, possibly perform liposuction, remove excess skin and fat, and pull the stomach tight to look flat.

For the breast lift, they will perform either an areolar, lollipop, or anchor technique.

Your initial recovery period is 2 weeks, and you cannot workout for 4 to 6 weeks post-operation as your body heals.

Your surgeon, our Patient Care Coordinator, and the rest of our team will give you thorough guidance and support you throughout your post-surgery care. We will schedule follow-up appointments to assess your recovery and results.
