*Patient results may vary.

A Mommy Makeover is one of signature treatments at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery. Our surgeons create an individualized surgical plan designed to meet the goals of a woman who has had children and wants to restore her body. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on the physique, especially in the abdomen and breast areas.

During a Mommy Makeover at our Los Angeles-area practice, we can address sagging or deflated breasts, excess fat, excess abdominal skin, diastasis (abdominal separation), and stretched-out abdominal muscles. Each plan is customized, depending on a patient’s physique and goals.

Dr. Steve Svehlak and Dr. Dan Yamini invite any woman dissatisfied with her post-baby body to learn more.

The most common elements of a Mommy Makeover are:

  • liposuction: to surgically remove excess fat
  • tummy tuck: to remove loose skin and tighten lax muscles on the abdomen
  • breast augmentation: to add volume to breasts to make them larger and more proportional
  • breast lift: to raise sagging breasts higher on the chest

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.

Is There an Advantage to Getting Several Procedures at Once?

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.

Typical Recovery Times

Recovery times after this surgery vary depending on the procedures. After a Mommy Makeover, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and other patients can typically return to performing non-physical jobs in two to three weeks. Most patients can return to full activity levels within one to two months after their procedure, depending on their specifics and the physician’s instructions.

Complementary Procedures

With a revitalized body, many patients also want to rejuvenate their face to give it a younger look. A facelift can change the contours by addressing sagging skin, while JUVÉDERM® and other dermal fillers can bring back a youthful roundness as BOTOX® smooths out forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.
