Mommy Makeover

Mothers dedicate a great deal of themselves to their families. It starts with the pregnancy, where the mother's body changes dramatically. Finally, there comes a time when mothers feel they're able to address their own needs. After multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding, many women find it impossible for diet and exercise alone to restore their figures. Fortunately, mothers with permanently altered figures find that a Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles is an excellent solution. The Mommy Makeover is a term for the group of cosmetic procedures that many mothers seek following pregnancy.

I'd be happy to discuss a Mommy Makeover with you in person. Simply request a consultation online or call us at (310) 300-1779.

Definition of a Mommy Makeover

For many women, the Mommy Makeover may include the following:

There are multiple variations of the Mommy Makeover, of course, and I individualize the plan for each patient depending on their needs. Many women will not need or desire all of these procedures. Each patient determines what her personal Mommy Makeover will involve after we discuss her concerns and options in a thorough consultation.

Combined Surgical Procedures

A Mommy Makeover may be performed in one or more stages. Age, health, needs and desires are all considered carefully when I formulate a plan for each patient. The majority of my patients choose to do more than one procedure at a time. I've had a great deal of experience performing these combined surgeries over the past decade. I've also done extensive clinical research on combined surgery, and have shared my findings with my colleagues through journal articles, presentations, and courses at plastic surgery meetings.

Tummy Tuck

The abdomen tends to experience the greatest change following pregnancy with stretch marks, loose skin and lower abdominal fat being the most common complaints. The abdominal muscles may also be stretched to the point that they remain separated in the midline, accentuating the patient's lower abdominal bulge. To treat these problems, I perform a tummy tuck where I remove the excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tighten the muscles.

Liposuction

After having children, fat tends to redistribute to new areas on the body where it may be unwanted. This is frequently true even if women are successful at losing their baby weight. Most often, bulges of fat accumulate around the waist and on the thighs. On these areas, I frequently perform liposuction as part of a Mommy Makeover. My preferred technique is power-assisted liposuction, the safest and most effective way to remove fat from these areas.

Breast Surgery

The breasts go through dramatic changes with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Patient concerns about their breasts vary greatly, but the most common breast procedures I perform as part of a Mommy Makeover include:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast augmentation and lift
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction

Mommy Makeover Summary

A Mommy Makeover refers to the common group of procedures that many mothers seek after they are finished having children. Many times, the operation is performed in one stage, but other moms will prefer to do the procedures over time. In either case, it gives many mothers comfort to know that the changes they see in their bodies following pregnancy may be improved dramatically by a skilled plastic surgeon.
