After giving birth, a mother’s life becomes a blur of many joyful changes. However, some changes that are less than welcome are those that happen to the mother’s body. Pregnancy and nursing take a toll on a woman’s figure and may lead to issues such as saggy, deflated breasts, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn fat deposits. A Mommy Makeover procedure is designed to take back the mother’s body by combining several procedures that can correct these issues and restore a pre-baby figure.
There is a lot of social pressure to “get your body back” after having a baby, and for many women, this is not only difficult but impossible without help. Sagging skin and breasts cannot be fixed by spending hours at the gym or adopting a vegan diet, but a Mommy Makeover can help a woman get her body back after childbirth.
The extreme lifestyle changes and the biological and hormonal changes that a new mother goes through can lead to overwhelming feelings of inadequacy and depression. Seeing the ways in which pregnancy has altered your body may diminish your self-confidence and taint your self-image. A Mommy Makeover can restore your body so that you will look and feel more attractive and confident as you tackle the challenges of motherhood.
No two mothers have the same experience with pregnancy and nursing. Your concerns may be about your stretched-out abdominal skin, loose stomach muscles, deflated breasts, sagging breasts, or even all of the above. A Mommy Makeover is a customizable procedure that can give your body exactly what it needs to restore its naturally attractive, feminine curves.
A Mommy Makeover procedure is completely customizable, which means that the recovery time will vary from patient to patient. Women who undergo all four of the above procedures at once should expect a longer recovery than women who undergo only one or two of these procedures. 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. Patients should plan a gradual approach to resuming exercise after surgery and keep all follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor their recovery.

I would first like to thank all the staff at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc.: Dr. Chiu, Chammy, Suzy, and Mallory. I appreciate everyone’s professionalism, accommodation, and kindness throughout my Mommy Makeover. I found Dr. Chiu through a Google search for top plastic surgeons in the area. Being a Registered Nurse, I am very particular about choosing a doctor. I have gone to many consultations and Dr. Chiu’s consultation stood out to me because he took the time to understand what my goals were. Dr. Chiu was the one to help me pick a size that would compliment my body. After having my Mommy Makeover, I can tell you Dr. Chiu is the best plastic surgeon. Dr. Chiu has amazing skill, bedside manners and attention to detail. This is a very important quality in a surgeon. Words can’t describe how happy I am with my results. I feel more proportional and confident. I have had endless compliments from close friends that knew I was having the procedure. They tell me my breasts look very natural and my scar is very faint. I have already referred many of my friends to Dr. Chiu and will continue to do so.
Dear Dr. Chiu, You are an amazing, skilled and talented surgeon. Truly, I feel blessed to have been your patient. From my initial consultation up until today, you have been warm, genuine, caring and professional. What I appreciate most is the time you took to guide me through the process of planning my Mommy Makeover. Each consultation was informative and educational. You always explained exactly what you were going to do and why. It is very obvious to me that you take great pride in your work. Most of all, I am truly amazed at the work you did. My breasts are beautiful. You did a superb job of making my breasts look and feel natural. Sometimes I forget they are implants! Definitely, I would recommend anyone to you, Dr. Chiu. You are the best! Thank you and your surgical team for a job well done!
A Mommy Makeover has far more than only aesthetic benefits. The improvements to your body shape can greatly enhance your self-confidence and feelings of attractiveness and sexuality. The results of the procedure may encourage you to want to maintain your improved body shape with a healthy diet and frequent exercise. The tummy tuck portion of a Mommy Makeover has even been shown to improve posture and core strength. A mons pubis lift, which is sometimes performed, can improve intimacy sensations and your libido.
You should be able to breastfeed after your Mommy Makeover, even if it includes a breast lift and/or breast augmentation. However, as many women experience some degree of breast sagging and deflation after nursing, it is best to wait to undergo the procedure until you have finished nursing. Dr. Chiu can discuss this with you in greater detail during your consultation.
Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover are in good health, non-smoking, and finished with both breastfeeding and having children. Candidates should also be committed to self-improvement, be dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts, stomach, thighs, etc., and have realistic expectations about the results. You and your doctor should determine together whether you are a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover.
