Giving birth to a child and being a mother are the most sacred roles in a woman’s life. At Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, we understand that children’s smiles warm a mother’s heart and that nothing else matters. However, we also know that happiness is complete when mothers are feeling comfortable, youthful, and beautiful in their bodies.
In reality, the effects of pregnancy are fairly obvious and can trigger nervousness, lack of confidence, and even some sadness. That’s why many women today are opting for a Mommy Makeover.
A Mommy Makeover addresses the negative physical effects of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. After pregnancy, many women experience long-lasting aesthetic issues, such as stretching of the abdominal skin, breast sagging, and excess fat in the hip and buttock areas.
With our expertise, skills, and modern techniques; mothers can restore a positive self-image*.
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
Each woman is unique. This is why our Mommy Makeovers in Manhattan and Long Island are always personalized and aligned with each patient’s specific goals and needs. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of several possible body procedures.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts lose their shape, firmness, and fullness. To recreate the volume and shape that moms had before pregnancy, we recommend a breast augmentation. It is a safe procedure that gives the breasts their original natural and youthful shape.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani is renowned for his breast augmentation procedures.
The breast lift is a procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts and rejuvenates the figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted. It can be performed simultaneously with a breast augmentation, if desired, to both lift the breasts and increase their size.
The abdomen can change quite a bit after pregnancy, and it’s frustrating when no diet or exercise works. With the help of Dr. Tehrani and the team of experts at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, women are able to get back their pre-pregnancy figure. Tummy tuck is one of the most popular body procedures, in which excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen are removed. There are several types of tummy tucks available at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, all with long-lasting results*.
Dr. Tehrani has received special training from the late Dr. Ted E. Lockwood in lateral tension abdominoplasty, an improved tummy tuck technique that restores the abdominal muscles and tissue to their original youthful place after having been stretched by pregnancy.

After pregnancy, it’s quite normal to gain weight, followed by layers of fat cells. We understand that reducing the fat enemy can be quite a challenge. We offer liposuction, the best solution for removal of the fat cells from the targeted area.
Liposuction is a procedure used to improve the body’s contour by removing fat deposits that lie between the skin and muscle. The most affected body areas are the hips, thighs, and abdomen. We perform Laser-Assisted Liposuction, widely known as SmartLipo, as well as traditional liposuction.
Our liposuction section offers you more details, including the positive physical and psychological changes that liposuction creates for you.
Some patients experience post-surgery accumulation of liquid or tissues beneath the skin that can harden. The resulting fibrosis can cause bruising or soreness. Lymphatic massage is a type of gentle massage that encourages blood flow and lymph drainage to help relieve this fibrosis. Once the lymph is drained, the reabsorption process begins. The waste tissue will be carried back toward the heart and, ultimately, naturally removed from the body. Lymphatic massage is a very safe and effective way to speed the healing process and improve comfort post-surgery. Your immune system will also benefit from these massages, which is crucial during a post-operative time of healing.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
The first couple of days, you may experience some discomfort and swelling round the treated areas, maybe even some slight pain. The combination of procedures you choose will influence the length of your recovery period, which may be up to 6 weeks or more. But with the utmost care from our patient care coordinators and Dr. Tehrani himself, you will be ready to get back to all of your day-to-day activities in no time, looking and feeling your best.
Speedy Recovery with EXPAREL
At Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, we are always striving to provide our patients the best experience possible. Whether you refer to this technique as “rapid” or “flash” recovery, it is gaining popularity for a number of reasons. Utilizing the speedy recovery injectable “EXPAREL” allows patients to significantly reduce the amount of pain they experience during the first 72 hours after surgery, when pain is at its peak. EXPAREL is a slow-release, non-opioid pain medicine that is injected into the surgical site during the operation to ensure a speedy recovery post-surgery. In the past, patients were restricted for up to 6 weeks after surgery. Speedy recovery EXPAREL injections allow for a seemingly painless transition between invasive surgery and full recovery, with minimal discomfort and downtime. While extreme pain is reduced, many patients can do without strong, addictive narcotics, and instead opt for a combination of over-the-counter Ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatories. Since patients have better mobility immediately following surgery, they are capable of performing stretching exercises which helps to decrease muscle spasms in the chest wall, therefore reducing pain and the chance of blood clots. This allows patients to return back to their normal routine much quicker compared to the standard, multi-week recovery with prescribed pain medicine. Speedy recovery injections are available for patients undergoing gluteal implant, breast augmentation and/or abdominoplasty. Schedule a consultation today to find out more about mommy makeover with the speedy recovery injection, EXPAREL.
