Mommy Makeover Surgery with Dr. Tal Roudner
Following childbirth, many women are troubled by breasts that appear deflated or sagging, loose and stretched abdominal skin, lax abdominal muscles with a protruding abdomen and fat deposits in areas such as the hips, abdomen and thighs. Some women are uncomfortable with the new appearance of their bodies and choose to get a combination of procedures including: breast lift (Mastopexy), breast augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty), tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty), liposuction (Liposculpture) and other body contouring procedures to fix problem areas. This process has come to be known as a mommy makeover.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Tal Roudner has extensive skills and experience performing the procedures that typically makeup the mommy makeover. In fact, he co-wrote the chapters on breast augmentation and breast lifts for a textbook that is currently used to train new plastic surgeons.

Mommy Makeover Procedures
Dr. Roudner can perform a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to get rid of the extra skin that remains on the front of your abdomen. This leaves you with a lean, smooth exterior that matches your reduced body mass. A breast lift with or without a breast augmentation can also be performed during your Mommy Makeover. Dr. Roudner can help restore your breasts to their more youthful, pre-pregnancy shape. You may also want to consider liposuction.
Abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is done to remove excess skin from your lower abdomen. Dr. Roudner will also tighten your abdominal muscles.
The most common tummy tuck techniques used during a Mommy Makeover procedure:
- Full – an incision around the navel and the lower abdomen (from hip to hip)
- Modified and Mini – no incision around the navel and the abdominal incision is substantially shorter
Once Dr. Roudner has made the necessary incisions to perform your mommy makeover tummy tuck procedure, he will:
- Perform abdominal liposuction and limited flank liposuction
- Lift any excess skin and fat off your abdominal wall
- Tighten your abdominal muscles
- Remove excess skin
- If necessary, a new opening for the navel is created
- Drains are put into place
- Incisions are closed
When skin loses its volume or elasticity, the breasts tend to sag, losing their firmness and shape. A breast lift (Mastopexy) is used to reshape and lift the breasts. During a breast lift surgery, as part of a Mommy Makeover procedure, Dr. Roudner can also address large areolas. He can reduce their size and then move the nipple to a more natural-looking position.
One of the most common techniques Dr. Roudner uses for mastopexy surgery is the anchor-shaped incision (wise mastopexy) that follows the natural contour of the breast. This anchor-shaped incision outlines the area where Dr. Roudner will remove the skin and identifies the nipple’s new location.
Once the excess skin is removed, the areola and nipple are moved to an anatomically natural position. The lateral and medial breast tissue pillars are then brought together and sutured to each other to give the breast internal support and the skin closure creates a shapelier breast. Generally, the nipple areolar complex is made smaller to achieve an aesthetic appearance, the edge of the areola is sutured to the edges of the breast skin remaining after the excess lax skin is removed.
Is a mommy makeover right for you?
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women who do not plan to have any more children and would like to improve the “problem areas” that exercise, healthy diet and active lifestyle are not able to address.
Your Initial Consultation
When you arrive at our Miami office for your mommy makeover consultation, you will meet with Dr. Tal Roudner to discuss the benefits and risks of the surgical procedures involved in a mommy makeover, and decide which ones are right for you.
During your Mommy Makeover initial consultation Dr. Roudner will:
- Ask you what you want to achieve with your Mommy Makeover procedure
- Perform an examination
- Explain his recommendations for you
- Answer any questions you have related to your Mommy Makeover procedure
You will be given the opportunity to review the mommy makeover results photographs of Dr. Roudner’s patients, and Dr. Roudner will personally discuss with you what results he expects to achieve with your mommy makeover procedure.
Scheduling Your Mommy Makeover
If you decide that a mommy makeover is right for you, we will schedule you for your surgery. You and Dr. Roudner will work together to determine if multiple procedures or a single procedure is advised. In some cases, it may be better to perform the surgeries at the same time. However, to make your recovery easier, it may be preferable to opt to have your breast surgery and your tummy surgery performed separately to allow healing in between each procedure.
Your surgeries may be performed here at our surgical suite, conveniently located within our Miami office, or they may be performed at a local Miami hospital. Dr. Roudner will work with you to make this decision based on your own unique needs.
Following Your Mommy Makeover Surgeries
After your mommy makeover surgeries at our Miami office, you should carefully follow Miami surgeon Dr. Roudner’s post-op instructions to ensure the best outcome and healing. Keep your follow-up appointments at our Miami office so Dr. Roudner can check on your progress and help you avoid any possible complications.
Do not return to your regular level of activity until Dr. Roudner gives you the go-ahead. Your healing time will depend greatly on the procedure you had done as well as your age and level of health.
