Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy is one of the most cherished experiences in a woman’s life. However, with pregnancy follows hormonal fluctuations and fat redistribution to unwanted areas amongst many other undesirable anatomical changes. Fortunately, women today can choose to have a mommy makeover to restore her pre-pregnancy contour and youthful vigor. 

What is a Mommy Makeover? 

Notably, a mommy makeover surgical plan will look different woman to woman. The primary areas of concern post-partum are the breasts and abdomen. You can expect to benefit from a mommy makeover if there is excess skin and fat on the breasts and abdomen, stretch marks, loss of breast fullness, and droopiness of breasts. Moreover, some common procedures performed in mommy makeovers include: 

  • Breast mastopexy, with or without augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Abdominoplasty, aka, “tummy tuck” 
  • Liposuction of the arms, bra line, back, flanks, abdomen, thighs 

Mommy Makeover Breast Procedures

The breast size wavers from enlargement, engorgement, and deflation throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding. Not to mention, the nipples and areolas may also lose symmetry. Procedures to restore the breasts’ youthful aesthetics include:  

  • A mastopexy which will lift and improve shape and counter sagginess. This brings the breast mounds back higher up on the chest wall and improves the nipple’s position. Additionally, you may choose to couple this with a breast augmentation. In this procedure either silicone or saline implants are placed either below the pectoralis muscle (submuscular) or above the pectoralis muscle (subglandular). An augmentation is a good option if you would like greater improvement of the breast shape and increased volume.

  • A breast reduction will remove excess skin, glandular tissue, and fat. Therefore, this will significantly alleviate any discomfort and symptoms caused by the weight of large breasts.

Mommy Makeover Abdominoplasty

Furthermore, during pregnancy, the abdominal tissues and skin are stretched to allow healthy child growth. However, the skin loses its tautness and is irreparable with diet and exercise alone. An abdominoplasty/tummy tuck would remove the lax skin of the upper and lower abdomen and excise some, if not, all of the abdominal stretch marks. Also, it would correct abdominal wall separation (rectus diastasis) if needed. Finally, this will leave you with a tighter and defined frame.

Unfortunately, despite a healthy diet and exercise, fat can be stubborn. Still, an elegant silhouette is achieved by removing fat accumulation (lipodystophy) in unwanted areas. Dr. Calvert will select from an array of effective liposuction devices that will bring you to your aesthetic goals.

Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeovers combine tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation to rejuvenate your post-pregnancy body to help you look and feel your best.

What is a mommy makeover?

While the experience of pregnancy and childbirth is one of life’s miracles, it can have many lasting and unfavorable effects on the body, including changes and deformations of the breast, abdomen, back and thighs.

The “Mommy Makeover” refers to a number of procedures performed in combination or in sequence and aimed at restoring a pre-pregnancy figure.

Dr. Calvert has women who visit him for Mommy Makeover surgery in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and others from all over the United States.

Mommy Makeovers: Breast Lift

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is performed to reverse these changes and return a youthful shape and lift to your breasts.

If you are interested in breast lift surgery after pregnancy, then you will need to delay surgery for several months after you are finished lactating.

Mommy Makeovers: Breast Reduction

Breasts also lose their shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Mommy makeover breast reduction is designed to remove excess skin, fat, and breast tissue.

A breast reduction can also elevate and reshape overly large breasts.

Mommy Makeovers: Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck: to remove excess skin and tighten stretched abdominal muscle in the upper and lower abdomen.

Other Mommy Makeover Procedures In Beverly Hills Include:

  • Liposuction: to remove pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat for a more contoured look.
 This procedure is often performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and/or arms.
  • Thigh Lift: to provide tighter, more attractive thigh and buttock skin.

You may want a mommy makeover if you have:

  • Deflated breasts with loss of fullness and sagging
  • Stretched abdomen or separated abdominal muscles
  • Excess abdominal skin resulting in sagging and stretch marks
  • Excess fat deposits on abdomen, lower back, and/or thighs

The Beverly Hills Mommy Makeover Procedure

A mommy makeover typically includes a breast lift (with or without augmentation), a tummy tuck, and sometimes liposuction to the abdomen, lower back, and even thighs if needed.

Other possible procedures to enhance the overall results might include sclerotherapy to remove spider veins from thighs and legs as well as laser treatments to remove C-section scars if present.

Recovery from this procedure varies from patient to patient, depending on what combination of procedures are performed.
