Having a baby is easily one of the most remarkable experiences a woman can have in her life. Your heart will open up and your perspective on life will change. That being said, after childbirth, you may not feel like yourself. Along with that, you may also no longer be happy with your body and the way it makes you feel. A little mommy makeover with plastic surgery may be the right answer.

Losing a little self esteem because of your body image is perfectly normal. Many South Florida moms choose to treat themselves to a Mommy Makeover, giving them the boost of confidence they need. 

Dr. Russell Sassani is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can help with this. 

His expertise covers every procedure you may choose to have a mommy makeover and give you back your beautiful body. He will discuss with you the goals you have and available options. We cater our services to moms from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach. From Lauderdale by the Sea to Plantation Acres and beyond. Now let’s review some mommy makeover FAQs.

What Are The Procedures For A Mommy Makeover?

Every woman’s body is unique and will react differently after giving birth. Your plastic surgery options will vary depending on what your needs are. Three of the most common mommy makeover procedures are:


A tummy tuck could be all that you need. Being pregnant causes your skin to stretch and grow at an alarming rate. The sudden change after childbirth leaves you with more skin and a bit of fat than you need or want. This procedure also tightens your abdominal muscles. We will remove both of the extra skin and fat, leaving you with a well-toned and flat tummy. 

Breast Augmentation / Breast Lift

Your mommy makeover might include one or both of these plastic surgery options after your consultation. A breast augmentation will enhance the shape, texture and size of your breasts. A breast lift will reshape and resize your breast and can also reduce the size of the areola.


The benefits of liposuction could be part of the solution for your mommy makeover. We will sculpt and shape you back to your pre-baby body by removing any unwanted fat. This procedure can be performed on just about any part of your body, from cheeks to knees!

How Long Is Recovery Time For A Mommy Makeover?

Plastic surgery recovery really depends on which procedures you and the team at Take Shape Plastic Surgery decide on. You could go home the very same day or Dr. Sassani may recommend an overnight stay in some cases. Your actual recovery time will usually take anywhere from one to four weeks.

Will My Mommy Makeover Scars Be Visible?

Dr. Sassani is a highly respected surgeon in the field of plastic surgery. His ability to minimize scarring is one of the reasons South Florida moms turn to him for a mommy makeover. He will choose the best location and use the smallest incisions possible to minimize visibility. The team at Take Shape will also provide you with solutions to help you eliminate or reduce scarring after plastic surgery.

When Should I Choose To Get A Mommy Makeover?

The easy answer is when you are done having children. Having another baby after a tummy tuck procedure could result in the second plastic surgery results not being as good as the first. We recommend you wait at least six months after breastfeeding as well. This will allow for time to let the shape and size of your breasts stabilize.
