Give “Me Time” New Meaning
Westport | Fairfield CT
As a mother, you know what it means to make sacrifices for your children, and you do so willingly and lovingly. One sacrifice you don’t have to make, however, is your appearance and self-confidence.
The fact is, many moms experience lasting physical effects from giving birth and breastfeeding. The biological shift that accompanies pregnancy can leave stubborn deposits of fat in your abdomen, hips and thighs, as well as stretch marks and scarring. Plus, many women who have cesarean deliveries are troubled by the post-surgery “ledge” scar.
Reclaim Your Body
Dr. Ellen Mahony, a board-certified female plastic surgeon in Westport, Connecticut, understands and supports your desire to continue to look and feel great as a mother. Her Mommy Makeover empowers you to reclaim your body and renew your self-esteem. Custom-designed to meet your unique postpartum needs, it can include one or more procedures to help restore your body — and your soul — to its pre-pregnancy vigor.
Your Mommy Makeover Options
Many moms choose a body contouring procedure, opting for a breast enhancement and/or facial procedure to get their looks back on track. If you just have a little stubborn fat left over from your pregnancy (the infamous “muffin top”), or you simply need to address localized fat, stretch marks, and excess skin, other options include a tummy tuck, pubic lift, body lift and/or tumescent liposuction in Westport, near New Haven.
The combination of procedures may include one or more of these treatments:
- Breast enhancement
Choices include augmentation to restore volume, lifts to return breasts to a higher and more youthful position, and reductions to remove excess skin and breast tissue acquired during pregnancy. It’s a fact: pregnancy and breastfeeding take a toll on a woman’s breasts. When you’re getting dressed for your day’s activities, have you noticed that your shirts and tops don’t fit like they used to? Are your bras working overtime to keep you looking good?As a busy mom, you may think that a sagging, deflated appearance is just one of the many sacrifices you make for your family. But it doesn’t have to be. With a Mommy Makeover in Westport, Connecticut, by breast enhancement specialist Dr. Mahony, you can restore your breasts to their former, pre-pregnancy size and shape. There are several breast procedure options:
- In a simple breast lift procedure, Dr. Mahony will remove excess skin and elevate your breasts to a more natural and sensual position.
- If your breasts have lost volume, you may wish to consider breast augmentation. Our New Haven and Westport patients who want to restore size and proportion frequently make this a part of their Mommy Makeover.
- In a breast reduction, Dr. Mahony removes excess, stretched skin that may have developed after pregnancy.
- Breast enhancement
- Body contouring
This includes liposuction to sculpt away that hormonal, resistant fat along the torso, hips, and thighs or a tummy tuck to repair the weakened abdominal wall and remove loose, stretched skin. A tummy tuck can also address the infamous “muffin top” and stretch marks. Dr. Mahony can also perform a pubic lift or a body lift as part of your Mommy Makeover.

ASK DR. MAHONY
Dr. Mahoy wants you to feel informed and confident throughout your Mommy Makeover. To empower your decisions, she has provided her answers to some of the top questions about the procedure.
I understand your concerns and many women share them – believe me, I hear it all the time. I like to be very honest with my patients though so I’ll tell it to you straight. 1) the scar is pretty much a given as it’s the only way to reduce the “pouch” and tighten the skin that’s been so stretched with those babies! Continuing with the honesty theme, as a board-certified plastic surgeon that has performed hundreds of these surgeries, I’m very skilled at incisions – both the placement and the closing sutures – which are half the battle in getting a good result. I promise you, you’ll be so pleased with your new body I think you’ll forget you even had these concerns.
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures designed to restore a woman’s figure after pregnancy and childbirth. Because it can affect several different areas, the results can be very dramatic. Dr. Mahoby’s Mommy Makeover patients tend to be among her most satisfied, because the process helps them rejuvenate feelings of confidence and femininity that they often haven’t felt in quite some time.
MOMMY MAKEOVER: BREAST SURGERY
While it’s certainly possible – and you can breastfeed after having breast augmentation surgery – it is not recommended if you think you’ll be expanding your family in the future. The main reason is that it’s better for you and for your budget to go under general anesthesia and surgery recovery just once. By combining the procedures in a Mommy Makeover – breast augmentation, tummy tuck and, often, a bit of liposuction – you only need anesthesia once. In addition, any help you require after surgery and time off from work is only done once.
