The Mommy Makeover is designed to reverse the physical effects that pregnancy has on the body. Women can experience a change in the feel and shape of their breasts following pregnancy. The abdomen can become loose, having lost its attractive firmness and tone. New and experienced moms alike can achieve their ideal body with a Mommy Makeover. Dr. David E. Marcus combines his technical skills with an artistic approach to produce results completely customized according to the needs, goals, and body type of the patient.
What Can a Mommy Makeover Correct?
Your Mommy Makeover Options
- Saline or silicone implants are used to increase the size of the breasts. Dr. Marcus will help you make an implant decision based on your aesthetic desires.
- Incisions are created on or around the breasts to insert the implants.
- Breast implants not only increase the size of the breasts but can also enhance cleavage and improve breast asymmetry.
- A breast lift improves the shape and projection of the breasts.
- Depending on the severity of your breast sagging, an incision is created around the areola that may also extend down the breast and along the breast crease.
- Excess tissue is removed to improve the size of your breasts.
- Your breast tissue is positioned on the chest and held in place using a special suturing technique.
- A mini or traditional tummy tuck may be used depending on your abdominal condition.

- Excess skin is removed, and the abdominal muscles are stitched together.
