A Combination of Restorative, Rejuvenating Procedures for Mommies

The joys of motherhood are boundless & wonderful…but the changes in a post pregnancy body usually are not. Some women bounce right back to their pre pregnancy body…while others look into the mirror & sigh.

Genetics & Lifestyle

All women, who go through pregnancy, experience changes in their body. These can be subtle at first and become quite dramatic over time. Post pregnancy bodies are known to resist the best intentions, best nutrition and most rigorous workout programs. These include: changes in facial skin (pigment and color), stretched, separated abdominal muscles, unattractive skin, stretch marks, droopy, deflated breasts, changes in the thighs, pelvic/hip, vaginal/genital areas, excess fat deposits on many body areas, less exciting sex life and a general feeling of just looking older.

Pregnancy affects multiple areas of the body, which is why a combination of procedures if often needed to restore what has been lost…so you can get your body back.

Before committing to a Mommy Makeover…it is important to: be at a stable weight, not planning to have more children (or at least not for 9-12 months), and you should be finished with breast feeding. These factors improve the results of Mommy Makeovers. Future pregnancy, weight gain, lack of exercise and normal aging will impact the long-term results of any Mommy Makeover procedure. But, if you do have a Mommy Makeover and then become pregnant, your improved health and weight helps you look and feel better after your pregnancy!

Good Candidates are committed and motivated to a good diet and workout program. You should also, be in otherwise good health and capable of realistic expectations.

The demands of raising children – raises the bar for Moms. Many women do Mommy Makeovers…to regain health & get back into shape…because they want to do something good for themselves & their families.

Mommy Makeover Options to Help Restore Your Body:

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) Treatments

Microdermabrasion…Light Peels…Skin Products

Can improve skin texture safely and predictably.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)…Mini Abdominoplasty

A thorough abdominal exam helps patients understand how Abdominoplasty surgery works well together long term with the right diet and exercise.
Abdominoplasty corrects skin laxity, stretch marks, excess fatty tissue, asymmetries and muscle changes. Abdominoplasty, also called Tummy Tuck is often done in tandem with Liposuction.

Breast Surgeries

After pregnancy and nursing, women experience many changes to their breasts.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation can restore, contour, lost volume and lift to droopy, deflated breasts. Augmentation usually involves implants to restore shape and volume while a Breast Lift repositions the breast back to a more youthful position.

Areolar/Nipple Reduction

Can result in a dramatically more youthful looking breast by reducing them 2-3 times back to pre pregnancy size and shape. Areolar and Nipple Reduction surgery restores a more pleasing, balanced breast contour to match the size and shape of your breast. Liposuction is one of today’s most commonly performed procedures to recontour and sculpt the body by removing excess fatty deposits. It can restore balance and contour to many areas.

Vaginal, Genital & Pubic Area Rejuvenation

Common complaints from post pregnancy women frequently concerns their love life and much more. Labor and delivery often loosens the vaginal area, causes bladder issues of urgency or spontaneous leaking, discomfort during bowel movements, unpleasant appearance of the genitals (causing embarrassment) and…reduced sexual gratification. The excess accumulated fat in the pubic area often shows through clothing and is unpleasing. Dr. Rudderman is very sensitive in discussing these matters and expert in recommending and performing the right procedures to restore function and youthfulness to these areas.

Personalized Treatment Plan

Since multiple areas of the body are affected, most women opt for a combination of procedures to restore what’s been lost during pregnancy and to get their body back. Many women are hesitant or feel embarrassed even discussing their concerns. So, doing a combination of procedures such as Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift and Abdominoplasty allows for a single recovery and one explanation to family and friends! We respect and guard your privacy and your emotions.

After your first consultation with Dr. Rudderman, you will realize that there truly is a difference in how surgeons approach their profession. For Dr. Rudderman…that difference means understanding your desires & goals & providing a level of service that places safety & comfort alongside predictable & pleasing outcomes.

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
