What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a term used to refer to a range of surgical procedures aimed at restoring the body to its pre-pregnancy state. Although the procedures can be done separately, many women opt for a complete mommy makeover to achieve their desired results. Dr. Derek Steinbacher of Guilford, Connecticut, is pleased to provide the mommy makeover for everyday women who want to improve their appearance.

Isn’t a mommy makeover only for the Hollywood elite?

A mommy makeover is not just for celebrities or high-profile women; it’s for any woman who wants to feel good about her body after having children. The surgery can help restore confidence and improve self-esteem. It can also help correct some of the changes that occur to the body after pregnancy, such as sagging breasts, excess skin, and excess fat around the abdomen.

What procedures may be included in a mommy makeover treatment?

A typical mommy makeover may include:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Thigh lift
  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation

A mommy makeover is major surgery, so it’s important to research and find a qualified surgeon such as Dr. Steinbacher, who can help you achieve your desired results. Make sure to ask questions and discuss your goals with your surgeon so that he can create a treatment plan that’s right for you–and tailored to your unique needs.

What is the cost of a mommy makeover?

Each mommy makeover treatment plan is tailored to a woman’s unique needs. It is also vital to understand that these are considered “elective” or cosmetic procedures typically not covered by health insurance plans, so patients will need to arrange payment with the office. We offer payment plans and financing options that allow patients to afford the treatment even on a tight family budget.

How do I find out if I’m a good candidate for the mommy makeover?

The best way to decide if a mommy makeover is suitable for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Derek Steinbacher of Guilford, CT. He can answer any questions you have and assist you in deciding if the surgery is right for you. The practice is located at 5 Durham Road, Suite 1-8, Guilford, and is open to new patients by calling (203) 453-6635 for a consultation visit.
