Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills
After giving birth, a mother’s life becomes a blur of changes, and some are far less welcome than others. Pregnancy, nursing, and significant weight loss can have a lasting impact on a woman’s figure and may lead to issues such as sagging and deflated breasts, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn fat deposits. By combining plastic surgery procedures that target the most common side effects of pregnancy, nursing, and weight fluctuations, a Mommy Makeover can help restore a woman’s body.
What Can a Mommy Makeover Do for Me?
Get Your Body Back
After giving birth, a woman has a lot of societal pressure to “get her body back.” Unfortunately, this is impossible for most women since sagging skin and breasts cannot be fixed by spending hours at the gym or adopting the newest diet trend. The only resolution to these problems is plastic surgery.
Restore Your Confidence
The extreme lifestyle, biological, and hormonal changes a new mother endures can lead to overwhelming feelings of inadequacy and depression. Women who have taken excellent care of their bodies often feel trapped in their sagging or stretched skin as their self-confidence diminishes. A Mommy Makeover can resolve those feelings by removing the negative physical repercussions after pregnancy and childbirth.
Give Your Body What It Needs
No two pregnancies are alike; different mothers have different concerns that need to be addressed during a Mommy Makeover. While your concerns may be centered around stretched abdominal skin, another mother may want to focus more on the shape of her breasts after nursing. Regardless of what part of your body needs the most attention, a customized Mommy Makeover will help you restore your natural feminine physique.
What Can I Expect During My Mommy Makeover Recovery?
Patients undergoing a more involved Mommy Makeover will benefit from remaining in an aftercare facility for several days after surgery. Incisions will be dressed with bandages, and compression garments will be wrapped around the treatment areas. Our Recovery Protocol will begin, which includes supplements, vitamins, and anti-bruising medications.
Patients may take prescribed medications to manage pain and soreness during the first few weeks after surgery.
2 to 4 Weeks
It is acceptable for most women to resume normal activities about two to four weeks after the Mommy Makeover.
Patients should refrain from resuming exercise routines until Dr. Chiu clears you and keep all follow-up appointments to best monitor their recovery.
Most of the residual swelling should have subsided, and your final results will begin to appear.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in Beverly Hills?
Because the Mommy Makeover is a customizable procedure involving multiple surgical techniques, the cost varies significantly and cannot be determined until after you consult with Dr. Chiu. This price will include the cost of the techniques performed, the facility and anesthesia fees, the implants (for breast augmentation), the surgeon’s fees, and pre-and post-operative testing. While every patient is different, most women can expect their customized Mommy Makeovers to start at $20,000. This will depend on the number of procedures performed and the extent of those procedures.
You will be given an accurate price estimate during your consultation. We offer financing through several plastic surgery financing companies.
At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc., Dr. Chiu can recommend the procedures that will help you achieve the results you want, based on your individual needs.

Dear Dr. Chiu and Staff,
Thank you so very much for your outstanding medical care and attention. I could not have asked for a better doctor. I was very anxious about healing correctly and Dr. Chiu was there with me the whole way. It means more than I can say to have a doctor care and listen the way that Dr. Chiu does. He is so wonderful, it is no wonder that his staff is the way they are. Kind, caring, tentative, and professional. Thank you! Thank you! From my first phone call into the office, speaking to Laurie, I have been beyond satisfied. I’m very grateful.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Does a Mommy Makeover have more than just aesthetic benefits?
In addition to improving your shape, the surgery can drastically affect your self-confidence and your feelings of attractiveness and sexuality. The tummy tuck portion of the procedure may also help show improvement in your posture and core strength. If a mons pubis lift is performed, the sensitivity of the intimate areas and the libido may improve.
Can I breastfeed after a Mommy Makeover?
If your Mommy Makeover includes a breast lift and/or augmentation, you should still be able to breastfeed if you have another child after your procedure. However, as many women experience some degree of breast sagging and deflation after nursing, it is best to wait to undergo the procedure after you are finished having children and breastfeeding. Dr. Chiu can discuss this with you in greater detail during your consultation.
Am I a candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
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.
How should I prepare for my Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a comprehensive surgical procedure that requires some preparation. In the weeks before your surgery, you will need to stop smoking, limit alcohol, and stop taking blood-thinning medications and herbal supplements.
You will also want to ensure that you have taken enough time off from work and any necessary social engagements and have assistance with childcare.
Do I have to be a mom to have a Mommy Makeover?
While most women who choose these procedures have one or more children, motherhood is not a prerequisite. Women who undergo massive weight loss have many of the same concerns and can benefit from these treatments.
What happens if I get pregnant after my Mommy Makeover?
None of the techniques used during a Mommy Makeover will prevent you from becoming pregnant or impact your pregnancy in any way. However, pregnancy will impact the quality of your Mommy Makeover results and may result in the desire for additional procedures or touch-up treatments.
Are my Mommy Makeover results permanent?
The longevity of your Mommy Makeover results will depend on how well you maintain the results. This process will not prevent you from gaining additional weight, nor does it stop the natural aging process. However, when paired with a healthy lifestyle (including a nutritious diet and regular exercise), your results can last for many years.
