A mommy makeover addresses the long-term effects of pregnancy that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone.
Sarasota mommy makeover surgeon, Brandon Lambiris MD, has extensive training in plastic and reconstructive surgery including tummy tucks, breast lifts, vaginal rejuvenation, liposuction, and mons lifting for women who have had one or more pregnancies. When combined, these cosmetic procedures help restore the body to its pre-pregnancy condition.
A Mommy Makeover is a combined procedure that addresses cosmetic changes to the abdomen, breast, and intimate areas after pregnancy. As a customized procedure, your surgical options may include:
Tummy tuck (‘abdominoplasty’) is a surgical procedure that tightens lax skin on the abdomen through an incision from hip to hip. Most post-pregnant women require a full tummy tuck with rectus plication.Learn More
Also known as a breast lift with implants, augmentation mastopexy elevates sagging breasts to a more youthful position and increases upper pole volume with saline or silicone breast implants.Learn More
Surgical fat reduction removes superficial pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on the frontal abdomen, flanks, mons pubis, or circumferentially on the midsection for a slimmer look 360 degrees around the waistline.Learn More
To correct a sagging mons pubis after pregnancy, a mons lift or mons reduction removes excess skin and fat overlying the pubic bone.
A labiaplasty is a form of vaginal rejuvenation that surgically reshapes the inner or outer labia, which may appear enlarged or elongated after pregnancy.Learn More
Many women are dissatisfied with their appearance after pregnancy.
Frequently more than one area of the body develops resistant fat as well as loose skin and underlying tissues. When multiple areas are of concern, undergoing a Mommy Makeover has numerous advantages compared to having several procedures done separately. Benefits include:

The ideal candidate is a nonsmoker who has realistic goals, good overall health, and no desire to get pregnant again as a future pregnancy might undo the surgical results. Women who have two or more of the following concerns may be suitable for our Sarasota Mommy Makeover:
Dr. Lambiris plans the surgery by marking the pertinent areas of skin and fat for resection. The procedure starts with intravenous anesthesia followed by intubation.
If your mommy makeover procedure entails liposuction, that is performed as the initial step. The liposuction process involves the application of tumescent fluid, dislodging the fat cells, and fat removal with machine-assisted aspiration. The incision patterns vary based on the specific procedure as well as his preference of surgical technique. After placing the incisions, he dissects the tissues, elevates the skin, and will resect the excess. Dr. Lambiris closes the incisions in layers with a combination of permanent and dissolving sutures as needed. He then applies sterile bandages to keep the wound clean.
Downtime varies based on the combination of procedures and individual rates of healing. Driving is not permitted for 24 hours due to the effects of anesthesia. Most patients take approximately three weeks off work and driving.
Swelling, soreness, and numbness are normal responses to surgery. Much of the inflammation subsides in the first three months however residual swelling may persist for a year. Dr. Lambiris may advise wearing a compression garment in early recovery to reduce swelling and optimize skin retraction. Bruising may occur and will typically resolve in two weeks.
Strenuous activities such as exercise and heavy lifting are off-limits for six weeks. Light walks are encouraged starting on the day of surgery to reduce the risk of blood clots. Dr. Lambiris follows up regularly during the recovery period to ensure the tissues are healing without complication.
It takes six months to a year to fully appreciate the results of mommy makeover surgery.
Results may vary depending on the specific combination of procedures. Many patients reap significant physical and psychological benefits of perky breasts, a firmer abdomen, and reduction of the female genitalia for 10 to 15 years.

Insurance does not cover mommy makeovers since it is an elective cosmetic procedure.
In most cases, Dr. Lambiris advises waiting a year after the final pregnancy before considering a mommy makeover. This allows time for the lax tissues to retract naturally. Any remaining laxity can be corrected with a singular body contouring surgery or a combined mommy makeover if multiple areas are of concern.
Post-operative discomfort varies based on the extent of surgery. Soreness, aching, and shooting pains as the nerves repair themselves are most likely to occur in the first three months post-op. Dr. Lambiris prescribes analgesics for pain relief.
Possible risks of mommy makeover surgery include prolonged numbness, bruising, seroma, asymmetry, wound dehiscence, skin necrosis, scarring, blood clots, dissatisfaction with results, revision surgery, cardiac issues related to anesthesia, and pulmonary embolism which can be fatal. Dr. Lambiris provides a detailed overview of risks and complications that you must review and sign before undergoing surgery.
The duration of recovery varies based on the combination of procedures. Most patients can return to work in approximately two to three weeks. Heavy lifting and physical exertion are restricted for six weeks.
Yes, Dr. Lambiris routinely performs abdominoplasty with rectus plication. He repairs the muscle by applying interrupted sutures at the abdominal midline. This brings the rectus muscle back together and corrects the ‘mommy pouch’ many women develop after giving birth.
