What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a set of treatments that target your trouble zones; areas of the body that have been affected by pregnancy. This is typically the breasts, belly, thighs, hips and waist. The main benefit of undergoing multiple procedures at once is the reduction in recovery time, as well as lowered costs. 

Who makes the ideal candidate for surgery?

Moms who are frustrated by their post-pregnancy figure are excellent candidates for a customized mommy makeover, provided they are in good mental and physical health, with no major medical issues.

Patients should be realistic in their expectations for transformation, based on their confidential consultation with Dr. Zampell. During your initial consultation, Dr. Zampell will explain all your options for improvement, and work with you to choose just the right procedures to target your trouble zones and restore your ideal physique.

Before & After

The most common procedures in a mommy makeover:

Breast Lift

A breast lift counters breast ptosis, elevating the breasts and nipples to a perkier, more youthful position. Because a breast lift combats only the angle and projection of the breasts but not their size, it is often combined with a breast augmentation or breast reduction procedure to completely transform the upper torso.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can be performed with implants (saline or silicone), or with autologous breast tissue taken from a donor area of the body. Dr. Zampell is a veteran of both techniques, and may choose to combine them, depending on your needs and aesthetic goals.

Breast Reduction

For some women, pregnancy can enlarge the breasts so that they become pendulous and uncomfortable, putting strain on the neck, back and shoulders. A surgical breast reduction can help to restore balance and ease, as well as improving the appearance of the breasts. A breast reduction can also improve your stamina and energy levels.


Dr. Zampell can perform liposuction to sculpt and slim the torso, whether it's the waist, the hips, the thighs, bra rolls or upper arms. During liposuction, excess fat is suctioned out of the body through a thin tube called a cannula. It can then be discarded as waste, or saved for a future fat transfer procedure.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery can be performed to help restore separated six-pack muscles that have been compromised during pregnancy. The lower figure is thus beautifully contoured and reshaped, giving the patient a whole new array of wardrobe options.

Recovery will vary from patient to patient based on the unique combination of cosmetic procedures, as well as your personal healing ability. Dr. Zampell will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan. You will attend regular follow-up visits to ensure your recovery remains on track. In some cases, you may be asked to wear a compression garment to minimize your swelling and help your body retain its new shape as the tissue heals.
