Restore Your Pre-Pregnancy Appearance and Achieve the Body You Deserve! Enjoy our mommy makeover surgery in new orleans today!
Pregnancy takes a toll on the body and affects your breasts, stomach, legs, and more. Sometimes, even with a healthy diet and exercise, these changes don’t reverse.
Just like any mother, if you look in the mirror and long for your pre-baby body, you might consider a Mommy Makeover in New Orleans.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover surgery is a combination breast and body contouring treatment that addresses the areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth.
Some of our most popular Mommy Makeover packages in New Orleans typically combine the following procedures:
- Breast enhancement — lift or augmentation
- Fat removal with liposuction
- Tummy tuck
- Body contouring and contour enhancement
- Fat banking and transfer to hips and buttock
Your Mommy Makeover is tailored to your specific wishes and needs. During your consultation with New Orleans plastic surgeon Dr. Ali Sadeghi, he will help you choose the right procedures to achieve your goals.
What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
Women often feel insecure about their bodies after pregnancy and childbirth, which can affect their self-esteem, social interactions, and even mental health.
Women who identify with the above may consider a Mommy Makeover to achieve a:
Firmer and Fuller Breast Appearance
Pregnancy often results in sagging or deflated breasts, which can affect the contour of your body shape and leave you feeling insecure. By lifting and augmenting the breast tissue, Dr. Sadeghi can make your breasts appear dramatically more supple, attractive, and younger.
Flatter and More Toned Abdomen
By tightening muscles and removing loose skin and fat from your abdomen, a tummy tuck can flatten and tone your stomach, improve your posture, and help you feel more confident.
More Contoured Body Shape
Fat removal from stubborn areas — including the waist, buttocks, thighs, and arms — can make you look healthier and give you the boost of self-confidence you deserve.
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
You may want to consider a Mommy Makeover if:
- Your breasts sag, are smaller, or have gotten longer and flatter
- Your nipples sag below the bottom of your breast line
- You have stubborn belly fat (or other fat) that doesn’t go away with diet and exercise
- The skin around your abdomen sags
- You have stretch marks that don’t go away
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
In most cases, Mommy Makeover surgery is an outpatient procedure performed by a surgeon under general anesthesia. When safe to do so, Dr. Sadeghi will perform the following procedures together to limit the time spent under anesthesia. Usually, this surgery takes between two and five hours.
The surgical techniques used for your New Orleans Mommy Makeover will vary depending on what is being performed.
A breast augmentation involves making an incision either around the areola (the dark part of your nipple), under the breast, or in the armpit. Then, implants filled either with saline water or silicone gel are inserted into the breast. These implants can be inserted either above or below the pectoral muscle. Dr. Sadeghi can recommend which types of procedures will be best for your body and desired outcome.
Some women choose to enhance their breasts using fat transfer breast augmentation instead of implants. While the potential increase in size is not equal to implants, breast augmentation using fat provides a natural look and feel.
Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift is performed by cutting around the areola, down the lower pole of the breast, and across the breast crease. Through these incisions, excess skin is removed, and tissue is tightened. This surgical technique addresses sagging breasts and restores their perky appearance.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
During a tummy tuck, an incision is made below the navel to remove excess skin, minimize fatty deposits, and pull the skin tight over the abdomen. A tummy tuck also involves a tightening of abdominal muscles to give your stomach a toned look.
This technique can address diastasis recti (the separation of the abdominal muscles) after pregnancy.
Liposuction is a fat reduction technique that can be used nearly anywhere on the body to reduce or eliminate stubborn fat pockets. This surgical technique is used for body sculpting, not weight loss, and should not be considered an alternative to a healthy lifestyle.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in New Orleans, LA?
The average cost of a Mommy Makeover can vary widely depending on the surgeries combined and the extent of those treatments. Since your Mommy Makeover will be tailored to your body specifically, contact the Sadeghi Center for Plastic Surgery to schedule a personalized consultation with Dr. Sadeghi and get an accurate price quote.
What Should I Expect After My Mommy Makeover?
How Long Does It Take to Recover After a Mommy Makeover?
After your Mommy Makeover, your body will need extra support around your surgery sites. You will need to wear a support bra and compression garment to keep down swelling and reduce pain. You will wear these garments for at least six weeks, maybe a few months.
To help drain excess fluids from your surgery sites, Dr. Sadeghi might place a small, thin tube under your skin.
Dr. Sadeghi wants to make sure you have the most comfortable recovery process possible and will make sure to give you instructions including:
- How to take care of your surgery incisions
- Medications you will take afterward
- Health signs to watch for
- When to schedule a follow-up appointment
Make sure to follow the instructions from Dr. Sadeghi very carefully. For some parts of your procedure, such as the breast lift, results will be apparent right away, and swelling will take about a week to go away.
For other parts, such as the tummy tuck or liposuction, it might take a few weeks or months for swelling to go down.
Although it might take a while for swelling and bruising to subside, you can resume your daily activities relatively soon. Most patients will be able to return to work anywhere from one to four weeks after the procedure.
Will My Mommy Makeover Leave Scars?
Because incisions are necessary, your Mommy Makeover will leave scars. There are, however, ways to help decrease scarring.
One way is by working with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Sadeghi. He knows ways to reduce your risk of complications that may cause scarring before and after surgery.
Keep in mind that not everyone scars the same after surgery. Dr. Sadeghi can help you decide the best surgery options for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Mommy Makeover
How painful is a Mommy Makeover?
You should experience only mild to moderate pain after your Mommy Makeover. Many patients experience some discomfort and soreness, but only the pain associated with getting a bruise. This pain can be lessened with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medications. Severe pain is unusual and may be a sign something is wrong — if you feel significant pain, please contact Dr. Sadeghi’s staff.
Removing your support bandages, compression garment, or bra after surgery can lead to more pronounced pain. You may also interfere with the results by not wearing a bra soon after your breast lift. It is highly recommended that you wear a bra for most of the day and evening.
Will I still be able to breastfeed after my surgeries?
Yes, most patients can still breastfeed after a breast lift or breast augmentation because these surgeries do not involve removing the nipple. Because the ducts are left intact, the breasts can usually maintain their normal function.
Will a breast lift or augmentation make my areola smaller?
This is up to the patient. Some choose to make the areola smaller during their breast lift; however, this change isn’t necessary. Dr. Sadeghi can help you know how to best achieve the results you want and help you know what to expect after surgery.
