What to Expect

All procedures are done in a balanced and natural esthetic.

Consultation

During your consultation, we will discuss your concerns and design a targeted approach that specifically addresses each problem area. Every patient has a unique vision for improvement, which means there isn’t a designated set of procedures that fits all patients. We will discuss your pregnancy history and future plans, current exercise regimen, diet and history of weight fluctuation. In this way, I can properly counsel you on the expected long-term results.

Once we decide on the procedures that will be right for you, incision location(s) will be demonstrated so that you will leave the consultation with a clear idea of the expected result. A mommy makeover is a truly transformative procedure that consistently yields dramatic, lifechanging results. Time to be excited about the new you.

Surgery

The Newport Beach Mommy makeover is performed at an accredited surgery center in Newport Beach, California, USA. Under the care of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, general anesthesia (fully asleep) is used to ensure maximal comfort and safety. The procedure typically lasts 3-6 hours depending on the degree of shaping required and the individual procedures performed. Special nerve blocks are used during surgery to ensure maximal post-operative comfort.

The incisions for a mommy makeover depend on the specific procedures required to achieve the outcome you desire. During your consultation, we will devise a surgical plan, which will initiate a conversation regarding incision location and expected results.

Recovery

If a tummy tuck is performed, patients are monitored overnight in the surgery center to ensure absolute comfort and are discharged home the following morning. Patients that undergo liposuction and breast procedures only are typically discharged home on the day of surgery. Patients are encouraged to ambulate often following surgery. Further activity restrictions are dictated by the individual procedures that will be performed and therefore discussed on a case-by-case basis. In general, I advise patients to make sure they have help with child and household responsibilities for at least 1 week so that their healing is uninterrupted.

Results

The results of the mommy makeover are intended to be long lasting as long as a healthy lifestyle and diet are maintained. Skin gradually loses its innate elasticity as we age, which unavoidably compromises the robustness of the result in time. As such, patients may desire additional revisionary procedures to re-elevate and tighten the breasts or recontour the body.

If you become pregnant following the surgery, the resiliency of the results may be compromised as the body endures pregnancy-related changes. This isn’t the end of the world and any undesired effects of the pregnancy can be corrected with revision surgery, which is often much easier (technically and from a recovery perspective) than the original procedure(s).

FAQs

Many patients have the capacity for one recovery period and as such prefer to have all surgeries completed in a single setting, if possible. Because this does not work for everyone, the breast surgery and body contouring can be staged if desired. This strategy does not detract from the overall result that can be achieved.

These are two of the most common questions I get from young mothers. In general, it is best to wait until childbearing and breast feeding are complete in order to achieve a stable, long-term result. According to current scientific data, undergoing a tummy tuck or breast procedure will not prevent pregnancy, restrict child growth or inhibit breast feeding. Therefore, the timing is ultimately up to YOU. During the consultation, we will discuss your family planning and which procedures may be right for you now and which procedures you may want to save for later. I can assure you that I will always be honest.
Pregnancy-related breast and body changes take months to stabilize. I ask new mothers to wait at least 3 months following completion of breast feeding before undergoing any breast procedures. This gives the breasts time to assume a stable shape, which is essential for proper surgical planning. Furthermore, over this period of time, the abdominal muscles regain tone and the skin maximally contracts, facilitating a surgical outcome that is more predictable and long-lasting.
