Pregnancy and nursing can take a major toll on a woman’s figure. These changes may lead to some unfavorable changes such as saggy, deflated breasts, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn fat deposits. A Mommy Makeover procedure is designed to take back a mother’s body by combining several procedures that can correct these issues and restore a pre-baby figure.

Increasing numbers of women are undergoing the Mommy Makeover procedure to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. A Mommy Makeover combines one or more of the following procedures to tighten and uplift the areas affected by pregnancy.

For more information on whether a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills is right for you, consult with Dr. Chiu of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery to clarify your cosmetic goals and get a clearer picture of what you can expect during surgery.

Breast Lift

Breasts are an area that tend to look less like they used to after children. Breastfeeding can often leave lasting marks and effects. This procedure lifts, reshapes, and improves the firmness of sagging breasts. Breasts that become saggy due to pregnancy and breastfeeding can look youthful and perky once again with a mommy makeover.

Liposuction

This procedure can remove unwanted fat from the stomach, butt, thighs, hips, bra line, or other areas of the body. Liposuction reclaims your natural, attractive body shape and can be the first step toward a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Breast Augmentation

This procedure enhances the volume and shape of small or deflated breasts. Breasts often lose volume and become deflated after childbirth and nursing. They can once again be firm and full with breast implants.

Tummy Tuck

Bodies can be stretched and can lose their original shape after carrying a baby. Most plastic surgeons recommend that patients undergo a “tummy tuck,” or the removal of loose skin from the abdomen area. A tummy tuck can be a simple way to get your pre-baby body back and to feel good when you hit the beach in your swimsuit. It can also help to eliminate stretch marks.

This procedure tightens the stomach muscles, removes excess abdominal fat and skin, and creates a smoother, flatter tummy. Abdominoplasty can help mothers reclaim their body by eliminating stretch marks, improving core muscle strength, getting rid of excess skin, and eliminating stubborn fat.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

A Mommy Makeover procedure is completely customizable, which means that the recovery time will vary from patient to patient. Women should expect a longer recovery period if undergoing all four of the above procedures instead of one or two. Some patients who undergo a more involved Mommy Makeover will benefit from remaining in an aftercare facility for several days after surgery. Patients may take prescribed pain medications to manage pain and soreness during the first few weeks after surgery. For most women, it is acceptable to resume normal activities about two to four weeks after the Mommy Makeover. For this reason, patients should plan a gradual approach to resuming exercise after surgery. Patients should also keep all follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor their recovery.
