Mommy Makeover Beverly Hills

WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

A mommy makeover is a comprehensive multi-procedure surgical treatment to help women who’ve had children reverse some of the physical effects of pregnancy and childbirth. The majority of mommy makeovers include at least one abdominal or body procedure and one breast procedure. Every mommy makeover is catered to the individual, however, so what you choose to improve through surgery may be different than what another patient chooses.

By combining multiple procedures, women are able to both reclaim features of their pre-pregnancy body that they miss and achieve the aesthetic goals they’ve always dreamed of. The customization aspect hands over control to the patient so that she can focus on improving exactly what she wants.

Most mommy makeovers include some combination of the following procedures:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Combined breast lift and augmentation

WHAT ISSUES DOES A MOMMY MAKEOVER ADDRESS?

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can affect a woman’s body in a range of ways — from enlarging the breasts and stretching the abdomen, to changing the distribution of body fat and causing stretch marks and scars. While the experience of motherhood is one of life’s true joys, these changes can cause women to no longer appreciate their bodies as perhaps they once did.

Add to this the stress of caring for a newborn and, later, of raising infants, toddlers, and older children, and you realize why so many moms lack the confidence they should have. There’s often so little time for mothers to devote to themselves. But they deserve to put the spotlight on them for a change, and a mommy makeover can do just that.

Mommy makeovers address issues such as:

  • A lack of breast volume
  • Sagging breasts
  • Enlarged nipples
  • Excess abdominal skin
  • Pockets of hard-to-lose fat
  • Stretch marks
  • Diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles)

WHAT MAKES A GOOD MOMMY MAKEOVER CANDIDATE?

The best candidates for mommy makeovers are in good medical health and have realistic, healthy expectations about their bodies and getting surgery. For many women, a mommy makeover can give them a body they are fiercely confident about, but there are also limits to surgery that patients must be aware of.

It’s also important to note that while the procedure can help eliminate a small amount of excess body fat through liposuction and the removal of excess skin, it is not a weight loss procedure. Therefore, patients must be either at, or very close to, their goal weight.

Mommy makeover patients should also be done having children and done breastfeeding. It is not an imperative that you never get pregnant after the procedure. That is, there should be no serious medical problem with a pregnancy post-mommy makeover. However, your results may suffer if you get pregnant after a tummy tuck, liposuction, and/or a breast augmentation or breast lift.

These procedures rely on the patient staying at relatively the same body weight and composition in order for the results to last. With a subsequent pregnancy, however, the breasts, abdomen, and hips will enlarge and change shape, and the results of your mommy makeover surgery may disappear or change because of this.

Lastly, mommy makeover patients should be non-smokers. If you currently smoke and are interested in getting a mommy makeover, speak with Dr. Lahar about your options.

MOMMY MAKEOVER BEFORE AND AFTER: WHAT TO EXPECT

Before your mommy makeover, you will meet with Dr. Lahar for a consultation where you will discuss your medical history, what medications and supplements you take, and what you want to achieve with surgery. He will give you a physical exam to help pinpoint your areas of concern and how best to address these issues. In some cases, additional scans or tests may be ordered.

After your mommy makeover, you’ll need to take it easy for a few weeks. Have a recovery setup in place at home with help from family members or friends where needed. You will not be able to pick up your children or anything heavy for quite a while, and you’ll also need to avoid exercise until you get the okay from Dr. Lahar. Depending on what procedures you had, you may need to wear compression garments and/or do daily exercises to enhance your results and decrease swelling.

MOMMY MAKEOVER BODY PROCEDURES

Liposuction

Liposuction is a standard procedure that aims to reduce pockets of stubborn, hard-to-reduce fat on the body. Liposuction can be performed in numerous places, such as on the abdomen, upper arms, upper and lower back, sides, flanks, buttocks, and thighs.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck fixes separated abdominal muscles and pulls the skin on the abdomen taut so as to remove the loose and unwanted skin. Loose excess skin is a common complaint of mothers. In some cases, removing it can also remove stretch marks and provide a smoother, slimmer, blemish-free midsection.

MOMMY MAKEOVER BREAST PROCEDURES

Breast Lift

A breast lift (also known as mastopexy) raises the breasts and repositions the nipples when necessary. Commonly after pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s breasts begin to lose their firmness and shape and instead sag and droop below the crease line. A breast lift does not change the breast size. Instead, it raises the breasts and tightens the skin, removing any excess.

Breast Augmentation

For patients who want to add fullness and volume to their breasts, breast augmentation is an option. This procedure utilizes breast implants to add volume and (sometimes) change the shape and/or projection of the breasts. Dr. Lahar will help patients choose the best type of implants for them based on their anatomy and goals for surgery.

Combined Breast Lift and Augmentation

In many cases, a mommy makeover patient may benefit from both a breast lift and breast augmentation. Dr. Lahar will raise the patient’s own breast tissue to reduce sagging, while adding implants to boost fullness.

MOMMY MAKEOVER FAQS

The average price for a mommy makeover in Beverly Hills is between $9,000 and $20,000 in most places.

However, there is no set cost for a mommy makeover because every mommy makeover is different and customized to the individual. Moreover, mommy makeover prices depend on where the procedure is performed, who performs the surgery and administration of anesthesia, and several other factors.

If you live in the Beverly Hills, CA area, contact Lahar Plastic Surgery to make a mommy makeover consultation appointment with Dr. Nicholas Lahar, MD. Dr. Lahar performs mommy makeover surgeries for patients in Beverly Hills and the surrounding areas.

This depends what procedures you choose to undergo. For most mommy makeover procedures, some light bruising and swelling at the incision sites and affected areas is to be expected. You will be given compression garments to wear that will help with swelling and enhance your results.

Avoid lifting anything heavy or exercising at all during at least the first several weeks. Rest at home, and get plenty of sleep. You will be somewhat sore for the first few weeks, though you will have pain management options to help mitigate this discomfort. Dr. Lahar may give you exercises to perform, depending on your procedures.

This depends what procedures you choose to undergo. Liposuction, for example, doesn’t have as extensive of a recovery as a tummy tuck does. Most of the time, mommy makeover patients can return to work and light normal activity after two to four weeks. You will meet with Dr. Lahar to check your progress throughout your recovery, and he will let you know when you can go back to your regular levels of activity.

Dr. Lahar will provide you with preparation guidelines before your mommy makeover. Smokers will need to abstain from using nicotine products for several weeks prior to surgery, and certain medications and supplements will need to be modified or cut out as well (anything containing blood thinners, for example).

In some cases, you may also need to have lab tests or scans performed. Dr. Lahar will want to have a pre-operative physical with you and will naturally go over your medical history ahead of time to ensure you are a good candidate for surgery.
