He most commonly performs tummy tucks, liposuction, breast lifts, breast augmentation, breast augmentation/lift or breast reduction surgeries. Dr. Marosan will hold a thorough consultation with a patient to find out her problem areas and goals to tailor the mommy makeover specifically for her needs. The patient has her photos taken and Dr. Marosan will go over these using the TouchMD software to show you his surgical plan for you.

During/After Surgery

A mommy makeover covers a sizeable area of the body. It is considered an invasive surgery and in many cases the surgery might need to be staged. The surgery is performed under intravenous sedation and tumescent anesthesia in our accredited surgical facility and can take 6-7 hours or longer to complete. The initial recovery is 7-10 days. The patient will walk somewhat bent over at the waist for the first week, and it is recommended that patients take it slow during the initial recovery phase. Depending on what was addressed during surgery, it could take between 3- 6 months to a full year for the final results. With that being said, most patients can go back to a normal routine in an average of 3 weeks; however, exercise is discouraged until at least 6-8 weeks after surgery.

Perfect! No more gynecomastia, love handles or belly fat - Dr. Marosan made my dream come true. No more gynecomastia, no more love handles, no more belly fat. I'm the person I've always wanted to be. Everyday I look at myself in the mirror and thank my lucky stars that I met Dr. Marosan.

Couldn't be more pleased - my breasts are so soft and natural - I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience and the results. My breasts are so soft and natural. I highly recommend Dr. Marosan and his staff and will definitely be seeing him for any future procedures.

Gynecomastia surgery - 3 months later and I could not be happier with the result! - I previously had gynecomastia surgery and then an additional correction, both procedures were with a different doctor and both procedures did nothing but leave me with scarring. I thought it would be a good idea to try one more time and thank goodness I did! Dr. Marosan explained everything perfectly and made me feel really comfortable moving forward. 3 months later and I could not be happier with the result! I would recommend Dr. Marosan to anybody considering getting work done. 10/10

Ab Etching Dramatically Increased my Motivation! - In Sep 2021 I had VASER Hi-def lipo, gynecomastia, and abdominal etching work performed by Dr. Marosan. Being former military, I previously tried to just force body discipline by 5am sessions with a personal trainer, random gym apps, CrossFit (twice), but still couldn't get (and maintain) my body the way I wanted. I knew I didn't need the motivation of group support, and if I could just find the right catalyst then I could do this on my own. So I bought a Tonal machine for at home workouts, and went in for the procedure with the objective that the surgery was just the start of my fitness journey (for immediate visual motivation), versus the end (ie no more work needed). I was fortunate to live right down the street from a respected true master of his craft who could do this work on me! Dr. Marosan fully explained what would happen, why he would do certain things, and equally important why he would not do other things that I'd found online (like sculpting a sixpack into the abdominal fat so I'd look like Batman 24/7). Not much to share on the procedure itself, I remember going in and laying on the table, and next thing I know I was getting up and wheeled out to my ride. I did have a few drainage tubes for a week which were a pain to manage for bathroom trips, and the garment/foam isn't the most comfortable, but once the tubes came out and the swelling went down things greatly improved.A year after surgery and I know that seeing the difference in my body has helped me make better dietary choices, and has kept me motivated with my workouts. This was definitely one of the best decisions I've made for myself, as I see the results every single day and know that it's 100% up to me to continue the work to highlight the impact of the sculpting even more. As I put in more work (nutrition & exercise), I now see the impact faster, and the benefit is more pronounced. If you're on the fence, just treat yourself & go in for a consultation, you won't regret it!(my pics are on his website gallery)

BBL: Lipo 360 + fat transfer w/ drains - Dr. Marosan, or Dr. G as I like to call him, is a no nonsense guy about his craft. You can tell he knows what he is doing, he's experienced, and knows his way around body contouring. After extensive research I chose Dr. G based on his credentials and his years in the field - I have zero regrets. I was also impressed by Dr. G's responsiveness following my procedure (lipo 360 + fat transfer) which is a big deal, because this is a big procedure. He answered my calls at 10 pm when I freaked out about my drains, and even took the time to see me on a Saturday, which is outside of his normal office hours, to check on me and address my concerns. The rest of the staff was also pretty amazing, Crystal, at the front desk is always responsive and kind, Lauri the nurse/coordinator is also a gem. Big shout out to Lauri for petting my head and comforting me during my arm lipo! Lauri if you're reading this, I love you lolIf my arms were long enough (and not leaking tumescent fluid), I'd hug the staff all at the same time.

Surgical Technique

The surgical techniques used during a mommy makeover vary based on the condition of each of the body areas the patient wishes to improve, the patient's BMI and health. For the breasts, common issues include sagging and loose skin and a loss of breast volume. Some women will have breasts that remain enlarged. Surgeries that may be considered include breast reduction, breast augmentation and/or a breast lift. For many, a combination of these techniques creates a youthful, beautiful post-pregnancy breast appearance. The most common example is a breast augmentation with a lift. For the lower body, it is normal to see loose skin, surface irregularities such as stretch marks, and persistent pockets of fat. These are normally addressed with liposuction of the waist, back, hips, abdomen and a Abdominoplasty (Skin Excission) to give the patient the best all around improvement, returning the body to the "pre-mommy" state.

How Safe Is it?

A mommy makeover, because of the combined nature of surgeries, is considered an invasive procedure. Anytime a combination surgery takes place, the overall risks increase. For this reason, it is extremely important that patients find an experienced plastic surgeon that has the training and skill to perform multiple procedures in one setting. Under the hands of an experienced surgeon, the risks are greatly reduced and complications are rare.

Babies After Surgery?

It is recommended that all pregnancies are completed before a patient decides to have a mommy makeover. Pregnancy may compromise the results of the surgery, because additional skin stretching and weight gain is inevitable. Patients who are uncertain if they will have additional children should consult with Dr. Marosan to discuss the best approach to take.

What About Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks may be minimized when the excess skin is removed. The tightening of the skin and underlying tissues will also help in making the marks less visible. Remaining stretch marks can also be minimized after surgery with skin rejuvenation treatments such as Thermitight radiofrequency or Renuvion treatment to further tighten the skin.

Will I Have Scars?

While a mommy makeover creates a beautiful new shape and figure for a woman, unfortunately, it does include some scarring. The scars are most common with a breast lift procedure and a Abdominoplasty (Skin Excission). The surgeon will make every effort possible to create clean incisions, as well as take great care in minimizing scarring as much as possible. Any scars that result from this surgery will be able to be concealed with undergarments or swimsuits. Dr. Marosan uses a short scar breast lift technique and the Abdominoplasty (Skin Excission) incision is placed low at the pubic bone level.
