You take care of everyone else. It’s time to take care of you.
Becoming a mother can be one of the most rewarding things any woman does. However, not every transformation that comes along with childbirth is welcome. With a Mommy Makeover in Philadelphia at StarkMD Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center, Dr. Stark and the team deliver a customized solution for women with the most important job in the world.
Simply, a Mommy Makeover helps restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state. Your makeover can encompass a range of surgeries, but what matters most is attaining your distinct objectives. During your personal consultation, Dr. Stark will help you identify your goals and select procedures to best achieve your objectives.
A Mommy Makeover usually focuses on removing excess skin from the abdomen, tightening stretched abdominal muscles, removing stretch marks from the belly area, correcting the shape and placement of the breasts, and contouring the body. A Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about four to five hours.
Some of our most popular and effective treatments for moms in the Philadelphia area include:
Dr. Stark creates a more youthful and contoured shape through incisions around the areolae and under the breast. With his meticulous techniques and attention to fine detail, he is able to minimize the appearance of scars.
Liposuction is a way of permanently suctioning fat from different parts of the body. Usually, these areas are stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Stark uses the S.A.F.E. and high-def techniques to achieve a leaner, more streamlined outcome in his mommy makeover surgeries.
Despite diet and exercise, the abdomen is often a problem spot for many women. Pregnancy causes widening and loosening of the muscles, fluctuations in weight can cause excess or drooping of skin, and genetics may work against us in the battle for a flat tummy. Dr. Stark can stretch and tighten the muscle and remove excess skin, minimizing the appearance of scars and improving the overall tone and contour of the abdomen.
With age and childbearing, breasts tend to fall and deflate from their original position. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the breast in the most natural-looking way using silicone or saline implants or the patient’s own fat obtained from liposuction of other problem areas of the body. Dr. Stark works closely with each patient to achieve the desired shape and size. In addition, Dr. Stark uses a rapid-recovery breast augmentation technique to minimize trauma to the existing breast tissues for your mommy makeover breast augmentation.
Whatever procedures comprise your mommy makeover surgery, Dr. Stark can help. First, he will ensure you feel comfortable when you walk into StarkMD Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center. His friendly staff, comfortable exam rooms, and warm bedside manner will immediately put you at ease. We understand surgeries can be emotionally difficult, and ultimately the key to success is an alignment of your goals with those of your doctor.
The consultations at StarkMD Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery allow the time and comfort each woman deserves to discuss her desired outcome. As health is of the utmost importance, Dr. Stark will ensure you take any necessary supplementation and stop any medications that may interfere with surgery. In addition, Dr. Stark’s considerable skill and finesse come through to minimize scarring with every closing suture.
Recovery from a mommy makeover varies, depending on the extent of the surgery and contouring involved in each individual case. Most women are able to return to work and resume daily activities one to two weeks after their mommy makeover and are fully healed about six weeks after their mommy makeover. Final results are able to be appreciated after three to six months post-operatively.

Do you remember what it was like before you changed your name to Mom? Sometimes, it might be hard to remember the time before your child or children become the center of your world. Perhaps it has been a while, or maybe you don’t feel as youthful and vibrant anymore, and that’s ok. It’s why getting a mommy makeover could be perfect for you.
For many of us, we picture ourselves as forever young and beautiful. Care-free and stress-free with a bright and radiant display. The stresses of everyday life happen to all of us, and we learn to grow and live with the changes our bodies go through. That’s where Dr. Stark comes in. He can provide amazing mothers like you options to get you feeling like you had your pre-pregnancy body. Then, through care and understanding, the team at StarkMD can help you achieve your specific goals to get you looking and feeling the way you deserve while maintaining the natural beauty you display as a mother.
It is not uncommon to want more than one mommy makeover procedure because it is natural for the body to change in many ways following childbirth. Dr. Stark’s skill and ability mean that not only are mommy makeover procedures safe on their own, but many are safely combined. An advantage to combining procedures is reducing downtime. Instead of having multiple surgeries at different times that would require various forms of recovery, you can minimize your downtime while you enjoy the benefits of multiple mommy makeover procedures.
Every woman and every pregnancy is unique and different, which is why every mommy makeover with Dr. Stark is custom-made for his patients. It is recommended to wait until you’re done having children, but each situation is unique. After pregnancy, Dr. Stark likes to wait as close as possible to a year before considering surgery. This allows your body to normalize to its pre-pregnancy state. Dr. Stark will personalize a plan tailored for you based on your needs.
Nothing can compare to the feeling of being a mother. Sometimes that means your family continues to grow. Because pregnancies can have a variety of effects on the body, a mommy makeover is most practical for women who do not wish to have more children or are past their childbearing years. A mommy makeover is a wonderful option for all moms, but getting pregnant after getting a mommy makeover could require additional procedures in the future.
