Pregnancy or multiple pregnancies can take a toll on the body – even after doing our best to exercise and eat well after having children. Here at Sunset, we believe all moms are beautiful. However, if you’re not feeling happy with the way you look or feel after pregnancy, we have the package for you: The Mommy Makeover. Designed to help you look and feel your best, the Mommy Makeover is a personalized surgery plan that can address anything from sagging or deflated breasts and excess skin, to excess fat and separated abdominal muscles.
Dr. Steve Svehlak and Dr. Dan Yamini, double board-certified plastic surgeons in West Hollywood, will consult with you on your personal goals and unique case, and will determine which procedure or combination of procedures will deliver your ideal results.
Procedure : Dual Plane Breast Augmentation + Tummy Tuck + Liposuction.

This is a 28 y.o. female from Riverside, CA, who was very overweight after having children. She had undergone gastric bypass surgery for weight loss. She had lost nearly 100lbs after the surgery. Now she consulted with Dr. Svehlak to address problem areas of her body. She wanted improvement of loose skin of her body and abdominal wall, and improvement of her saggy breasts.
Dr. Svehlak performed multiple surgeries in this Mommy Makeover transformation. She first had an aggressive muscle tightening abdominoplasty with a breast lift, and body contouring with liposuction and fat transfer to the buttocks (355cc to each buttock). Several months later she had additional surgeries of brachioplasty to address the loose skin of her upper arms, placement of saline breast implants, a medial thigh lift, and further liposuction and contouring. After nearly 1 1/2 years later she had a very nice body transformation which she was very happy with.

After having one child and then suffering several miscarriages over the next few years my body was shot. I had a worn-out tummy that always looked sort of pregnant because it actually had been for so long. I loved my child, but I hated it when people asked me when I was due with my next one. It was embarrassing and extremely depressing. I had tried very hard to have another baby and I felt like people were either judging me for not having one or excitedly misinformed because of the way my tummy still protruded through clothes. I was diligent with dieting and exercising but perhaps because I was in my early 40’s my body was just not coming back.
I decided that I needed professional help to get to where I wanted to be. My self-esteem was low and I felt defeated. A Mommy Makeover at Sunset Plastic Surgery was the right choice for me. I had a tummy tuck & liposculpting around my midsection and legs. The recovery wasn’t easy but it was worth it. My doctor prepared me with what to expect so I worked through it and in about 6 weeks I was bikini shopping in Hawaii with my family. It was a lovely vacation and not one person asked me if I was pregnant. 😉
Procedure : Mommy Makeover + Tummy Tuck + Liposculpting

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures chosen specifically to help patients who have had children and wish to get closer to their pre-pregnancy body where exercise alone can not accomplish.
Common procedures include:
Popular combinations include a tuck and lift, lipo and augmentation, a mini-tuck and augmentation, and a lift paired with a Brazilian butt lift, which adds volume to a sagging backside to make it shapelier.
Practically any woman of a healthy and managed weight can have a Mommy Makeover. We recommend that the patient has completed her childbearing before proceeding with a Mommy Makeover and has waited at least six months after giving birth or finishing breastfeeding.
Get ready to say hello to contours and confidence. Your surgeon and the highly skilled and experienced team at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery will guide you through your procedures and ensure you remain calm and comfortable throughout. You will be placed under anesthesia for your procedures.
Your aftercare and recovery time will be dependent on the type and number of procedures you have had, and you will receive detailed instructions and information on how best to help your body heal in the weeks and months following surgery. If there is any looseness in the skin, we can use Renuvion J Plasma to help firm and tighten the underlying tissues.
Some portions of the Mommy Makeover can be performed at our office and these can include some small touch up liposuction and contouring, fat transfer, and scar revision. This is done under a local anesthesia with a mild oral sedation. Part of the Mommy Makeover can include face treatments such as filler injections, neurotoxin injections, and skin treatments such as PRP and microneedling. Other in office treatments can include Vaginal Rejuvenation with our vaginal CO2 laser and RF treatments.

Popular Mommy Makeover combinations performed at Sunset include:
During consultations for a Mommy Makeover, Los Angeles women often inquire about the safety of having multiple procedures done in one surgery. There have been a number of studies that indicate there is not a significant increase in the number of complications after combination procedures compared with single-procedure surgeries. There is also a benefit to a single period of recovery after surgery instead of several single-procedure surgeries.
Also, consider the significant savings in doing several procedures at once, since you’ll only incur a single charge for overhead costs like anesthesia and operating room expenses. Overall Mommy Makeover cost will depend on the full scope of the surgeries performed.
The single most important factor when considering a Mommy Makeover in the Los Angeles area is the surgeon. Choose a surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery and highly experienced in multi-procedure surgery. Then give your body the tune-up it deserves.
Every surgery is different, and therefore this influences pricing. We offer several payment options, and the ability to finance your treatment with a full range of extended payment plans through CareCredit®.
A Mommy Makeover can be done in one or two stages, depending on the procedures chosen. They may be done in one surgery together, or at two separate times.
Depending on your procedures, you can typically return to performing non-physical jobs and activities in two to three weeks. Most patients can return to full activity levels within one to two months after their Mommy Makeover.
This is mainly a personal choice. If you are planning on having more children within the next year or so, we would recommend not pursuing an aggressive Mommy Makeover procedure at this time. If you are not sure about having more children, then this would be discussed on a case by case basis. Most women get great satisfaction from a Mommy Makeover procedure and may want to pursue this sooner.
