About Mommy Makeovers
At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA, Dr. Theodore T. Foley offers mommy makeover surgery to women who wish to reverse the negative effects of childbearing. Although motherhood is very rewarding, pregnancy and childbirth can cause a woman’s body to stretch and accumulate fat in areas like the abdomen and thighs. A mommy makeover consists of a combination of several surgeries like a tummy tuck, breast lift, and lower body lift. Each treatment will vary, depending on your cosmetic needs and desires. However, Dr. Foley will partner with you to develop a treatment plan that is unique to your aesthetic goals.
Dr. Foley performs complete mommy makeovers at his practice and can create a custom treatment plan that includes two or more complementary procedures to enhance your figure. Whether you want to slim down your midsection, enhance the breasts, or say goodbye to stubborn body fat after baby, he can design a mommy makeover package that addresses all of your concerns.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017
"I was referred to Dr. Foley through a friend for removal of basal cell cancer on my upper lip. Originally, I was scheduled for MOHS through dermatology at a local medical teaching facility. The EOB - for the teaching facility - for the biopsy and initial visit showed very high charges, including a "facility fee" of over $700. I was informed that I had to wait almost five months for the procedure. That's when I started looking for alternatives. Thankfully, I found Dr. Foley. Cancer removed, clean edges, no scar and the procedure was done the week I called for an appointment. The cost? A small fraction of what is charged at the medical teaching facility. Did I mention the staff? Very professional and friendly. Lesson learned - getting the best health care solution does not have to be expensive."- M.S. / Yelp / Mar 06, 2020

"Dr. Folley and his team provide an excellent experience. There is zero pressure to have procedures performed.

Don't hesitate if you are thinking of getting a procedure done. You will be in good hands and not regret the results."- J.D. / Google / Jun 04, 2022
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women in good health who need assistance restoring their body after pregnancy and childbirth. A mommy makeover is best for women who have used a healthy diet and exercise to naturally restore their body, but there are still stubborn pockets of fat, loose skin, or other concerns that cannot be altered naturally. It is recommended that candidates seeking a mommy makeover not be planning any more pregnancies, as additional pregnancies will alter the work of this procedure. If you do get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a few touch up surgeries are usually needed to restore your results.
What to Expect
Most mommy-makeover surgeries include one or more of the following:
One of the most popular procedures for mothers, this body contouring procedure can reshape your midsection and eliminate any excess fat and loose skin around the abdominal area. A tummy tuck may involve removing excess fat with liposuction and reshaping the abdominal wall. It also involves removing loose skin that may be creating a ‘shelf’ or a stomach ‘pooch’.
If you have lost some weight after baby and your breasts are sagging or drooping, you may be a good candidate for a breast augmentation procedure with implants or a breast lift. If your breasts are too large, a breast reduction may be a better options for you.
Dr. Foley can perform liposuction on virtually any part of the body with localized fat deposits. If you are having a hard time losing excess fat around the hips, thighs, stomach, arms, or other part of the body, liposuction may be a part of your mommy makeover package.
Prior to the procedure, you will meet with your surgeon to discuss which procedures will be part of their mommy makeover treatment plan. Since a mommy makeover incorporates a number of different procedures, each patient’s surgical experience will be different. Most mommy makeover surgeries will be performed at the West Shore Surgery Center or a Pinnacle hospital with the patient under general anesthesia. The length of the surgery varies based on the number and types of procedures performed at one time. Because of the invasiveness of certain procedures, some patients will opt to stay overnight following surgery. Recovery time for a mommy-make over varies depending upon which procedures are done. However, most patients can go back to their normal routines after roughly the first month. Exercise should be avoided for 2 months post-surgery or when your surgeon gives approval. After surgery, you will slowly begin to see your transformed body as the swelling subsides.
Most mommy makeover procedures are performed under general anesthesia and may be combined in a single visit. In some cases, we will need to spread out the procedures over course of a few months so the body has enough time to heal and recover between more aggressive procedures. Dr. Foley will determine what type of treatment timeline will work best for you. You can expect to see full results within a few months and up to a year after your surgeries. You will maintain results as long as you do not have additional children or experience any major weight fluctuations.
For many women, undergoing a mommy makeover can transform their figure and boost their self-confidence. If you want to have your pre-baby figure back, talk to Dr. Foley about body contouring and breast enhancement procedures that may be the perfect match for you.
Some mommy make overs can be nonsurgical and hence have very little to no downtime. These would include some of our noninvasive treatments like the UltraShape Power (which destroys fat), the VelaShape III (which reduces cellulite), and many of the aesthetic facial treatments that we have available. Patients typically choose to reduce abdominal, flank, and/or bra fat using the UltraShape Power and to reduce thigh cellulite using the VelaShape III. Some women also enjoy abdominal and/or arm skin tightening with the VelaShape III. Our most popular facial skin treatments include the DiamondGlow, which exfoliates and infuses the skin with antioxidants, and our rejuvenating chemical peels. Patients seeking mommy makeovers also typically enjoy also getting Botox to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Cost of Mommy Makeover
The cost of a Mommy Makeover ranges on average from $13,000. If you are comparing prices between different plastic surgery practices, make sure you are comparing the fees which include all aspects of your upcoming surgery. These prices include the physician, anesthesia, and facility fees assuming that your surgery is being completed in a surgery center. If your surgery needs to be performed at the hospital, the fees will be ~$1500-$2000 more depending on the procedure, the surgical time, and whether or not you choose to stay overnight at the hospital. Also, your best choice for a cosmetic procedure of any kind is to choose a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Theodore Foley, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is local to you. Not only will you receive the best surgical care that way, but you will also receive the best postoperative care. At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central PA, we encourage patients to call for a complimentary personal consultation with our plastic surgeon so a customized quote can be prepared for you by our staff.

Prices are subject to change and are our current estimate of the price which is inclusive of physician, facility, anesthesia at a surgical center. Some procedures, which do not require anesthesia, may be done at our office and would not then entail an anesthesia fee. If patients need to have their surgery at a hospital, prices are typically more expensive and will be outlined after consultation.
