What is a Mommy Makeover?
The term “Mommy Makeover” (view our extensive gallery of transformations here) is particularly popular and can be used in different ways. Here at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery in Los Angeles, it is not considered to be one specific operation, but rather a combination of procedures. Plastic surgeons in Los Angeles, Dr. Steven Svehlak and Dr. Daniel Yamini consult and tailor each surgical plan individually to meet the needs of patients who have had children and want to get closer to their pre-pregnancy body than exercise alone can accomplish. A Mommy Makeover typically involves any combination of tummy tuck, liposuction or breast enhancement, and popular problem areas that can be addressed include:
- Saggy breasts
- Loss of breast fullness and size
- Stretch marks on the abdomen
- Loose skin on the stomach
- Flabby abdominal muscles
Popular Mommy Makeover combinations performed at Sunset include:
Can a Mommy Makeover Be Performed in a Single Operation?
A Mommy Makeover can be done in one or two stages, depending on how many areas need to be addressed. Often times, some or all of the procedures can be completed together, but for larger procedures (such as a full tummy tuck + traditional breast lift) surgeries may done separately. Drs. Yamini and Svehlak aim to perform each procedure with extreme care and attention to detail, using the least invasive methods possible to safely achieve natural-looking results.
How Soon After Giving Birth Can I Request a Mommy Makeover?
In effort to achieve the most optimal results, a woman in overall good health (with a stable weight) should generally wait until she has completed her childbearing to proceed with a Mommy Makeover – and furthermore, at least six months after giving birth or finishing breast feeding.
What Can I Expect Throughout the Mommy Makeover Process?
Consultation – During your first initial Mommy Makeover consultation, Dr. Svehlak or Dr. Yamini will ask about your general medical history and examine your areas of concern. Together, you will devise a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and is surgically feasible.
Costs – Costs associated with your Mommy Makeover generally will depend upon the procedures involved, but are typically quoted to include: 1.) Surgeon Fees; 2.) Anesthesia Fees; and 3.) Operating Room Fees. Sunset Cosmetic Surgery offers easy financing options so that you can begin treatment procedures immediately.
Recovery – Depending upon the types of procedures chosen and whether the breast, abdomen, or both are addressed, recovery times will vary. Most Mommy Makeover patients go home the same day and can return to a desk job within 1-2 weeks. In most cases, full activity, such as working out, can be resumed in 1-2 months. Everybody and case is different, so in some cases, a longer recovery period may be recommended.
What is the Sunset Cosmetic Surgery Difference?
Confidence is beautiful! All Moms are beautiful too! But, we don’t always FEEL beautiful…. Pregnancy, lack of sleep, stress—it all takes a toll on our physical appearance. Most patients are elated with their new and improved contours after surgery, and women who have a Mommy Makeover often say their new curves not only enhance their looks, but also their attitude.
