Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding on a woman’s body and to restore and enhance her pre-baby figure. It can also benefit women who have experienced changes due to weight fluctuations or the aging process. Dr. Sepideh Saber will customize the mommy makeover surgery to address patients’ specific body goals.

Most mommy makeovers are a combination of breast enhancement surgery, tummy tuck, and body contouring procedures with liposuction. However, the surgery can include other areas of concern designed specifically for the patient’s needs.

After consultation with Dr. Saber to address the patient’s specific concerns, breast enhancement procedures may include one or a combination of the following: Breast augmentation with implants or fat transfer, Breast lift and/or Breast reduction

A tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, tightens the patient’s stretched abdominal muscles and removes sagging skin and excess fat from the belly area. The result is a flatter and stronger abdominal wall with a smaller and contoured waistline.

Mommy makeovers often include liposuction to remove areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction is used to sculpt multiple areas of the body, including the belly, waist, inner thighs, or other areas of concern. It can also be used to add volume to other areas such as the hips or buttocks. Dr. Saber often combines liposuction procedures with a tummy tuck to achieve the best body contouring results.

Benefits

Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover can significantly boost a woman’s self-confidence by restoring pre-pregnancy shape, feminine curves, and youthfulness. Most commonly, it involves tightening stretched muscles, eliminating loose skin and stretch marks, and removing excess fat. Multiple plastic surgery procedures are combined to achieve an impressive makeover with reduced downtime. Upon personal consultation, Dr. Saber will design a treatment plan to specifically fit the patient’s body.

Q&A

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

Women who have ptosis (sagging) of the breasts, stretch marks, excess skin and fat, or stretched abdominal muscles after pregnancy or weight loss are good candidates to undergo a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover is an opportunity to rejuvenate the body, reverse unwanted changes, improve the appearance in and out of clothing, and boost a woman’s self-confidence.

The ideal candidate is at or near her goal weight, has completed family planning (i.e., does not plan to give birth to any more children), is a non-smoker who is healthy enough to undergo elective surgery, and has realistic expectations.

Breast augmentation, Breast lift or Breast reduction?

Breast augmentation may be performed with silicone or saline breast implants to add volume and perkiness. Alternatively, the patient may choose to use her own tissues instead of implants through the process of fat grafting.

 

Breast lift surgery may be indicated to raise and restore hanging breasts to a more youthful shape and contour. Dr. Saber may combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure for the best aesthetic outcome based on the patient’s desires.

 

Breast reduction reduces the size of overly large breasts by removing excess fatty tissue and skin. The reduction simultaneously lifts the breasts and is tailored to a size desired by the patient.

How About Consultation?

A mommy makeover consultation includes a review of the patient’s medical history, a physical examination, and a discussion about aesthetic goals. Dr. Saber then designs a custom mommy makeover treatment plan and answers any questions.

Is it Safe?

While most mommy makeover procedures are complication-free, risks include bleeding, infection, breast implant complications, scarring, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia. Incisions will be strategically placed to minimize scars and hide them under clothing. The risks and benefits of each procedure will be discussed during the consultation.

 

The patient’s safety and comfort are Dr. Saber’s chief priorities. The most important aspect of limiting risks during a mommy makeover is to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands the risks and benefits of combining procedures. Dr. Saber is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and exclusively works with anesthesiologists who are board-certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology. Moreover, all procedures are performed on a hospital campus and the doctor has full admitting privileges, which means any complications can be treated through insurance.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS LIKE?

Dr. Saber will provide the patient with detailed information regarding the procedure overview, pre-operative instructions, postoperative instructions, and recovery process at the time of consultation. The initial recovery process usually takes one to two weeks but varies depending on your surgery. Avoid lifting over 10 pounds or engaging in physically strenuous activity for the first six weeks. Initial results can be seen during the first two weeks, but more changes will gradually emerge as the swelling and bruising subside. Dr. Saber and her staff are always available to answer questions that may arise.
