It’s normal to develop fat deposits, sagging breasts, and other negative changes in your body after you give birth. Trying to fix these pregnancy-related changes on your own can be a very challenging experience. You might be unable to exercise when you are caring for your new child. Further, your fat deposits may not respond to your lifestyle changes.
Fortunately, you don’t have to use lifestyle changes to improve your body. A mommy makeover is a term that is used to describe a customizable set of cosmetic procedures that are used to correct pregnancy-related changes in your body. It’s common to include a tummy tuck, liposuction, a breast lift, and a breast augmentation during this type of makeover.

Introduction to Mommy Makeovers
The changes that you experienced after pregnancy can decrease your self-esteem and confidence. You might avoid wearing articles of clothing that show off your stomach and other parts of your body. In addition, you might become depressed and unhappy if you are unable to reverse your post-pregnancy changes by dieting or exercising.
Fortunately, you don’t have to correct these changes by yourself. During your makeover, we can improve your stomach, breasts, and other areas of your body during a single appointment. Receiving multiple cosmetic procedures at once may decrease your anesthesia fees and other costs. In addition, you won’t have to go through multiple recovery periods in order to improve your post-pregnancy body.
How Do Mommy Makeovers Work
We can use a variety of different cosmetic techniques to enhance your appearance during your makeover. When you arrive at our office in Beverly Hills, we will look at your body and talk about the changes that you developed during pregnancy. At this point, you should be prepared to tell us about any specific features that you would like to improve. For example, you should tell us if you have unwanted fat deposits on your body.
After we have talked about your concerns, we will design a makeover package that will address the aesthetic problems that are bothering you. We can also provide you with an estimate of the total cost of your makeover. This cost will depend on the procedures that will be included in your makeover, the anesthesia that you will receive, and other factors. If you are happy with this package, we can schedule your procedure at this time.
Child Birth and Body Changes
Even if you eat well and exercise during your pregnancy, you might notice a number of negative changes during this time in your life. In particular, you are likely to develop loose skin and fat on your stomach after you give birth. Your abdominal muscles may become weaker, and your stomach could begin to bulge.
In addition, you may develop fat deposits in other locations on your body. You are likely to struggle to remove these deposits by exercising and eating better. It’s also normal for the size and shape of your breasts to change while you are breastfeeding your baby. These developments can cause your breasts to become droopy and deflated.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
You will probably want to receive a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation during your makeover. We can also use liposuction to remove unwanted fat from your thighs, arms, stomach, and other areas of your body. In addition to these procedures, you could decide to receive a thigh or arm lift. Further, we could give you a facelift or another facial rejuvenation procedure.
When you have your initial consultation at our office in Beverly Hills, we will provide you with a full description of the aesthetic procedures that you can include in your makeover. We will also talk about the number of cosmetic procedures that you can safely receive during a single appointment. Based on your general health and preferences, we will create a customized makeover package for you.
Who Is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you are unhappy with the changes that you’ve experienced after pregnancy, you will probably be a good candidate for this procedure. To be eligible for a makeover, your health will need to be fairly good. If you have diabetes, a bleeding disorder, or other chronic health issues, you might not be able to receive a makeover.
Further, you’ll need to have a realistic idea of how this procedure will change your breasts, stomach, and other features. In addition, we will ask you not to smoke cigarettes or use other tobacco products before you get your makeover. Avoiding these substances will shorten your recovery period and allow you to quickly return to your job and other activities.
Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover
To ensure that you receive the most beneficial results from your makeover, you will need to follow all of our pre-procedure instructions. For example, you’ll need to stop eating and drinking by a certain time on the night before your appointment. You’ll also need to have a close family member or friend drive you back to your house after your makeover is complete.
To ensure that you have a smooth recovery, you should schedule time off from your job and ask a family member or friend to help you with childcare during the initial stages of your recovery. This person should also be prepared to assist you with housework and meal preparation for a while. Since you will be tired after you receive your procedures, you won’t want to worry about cooking and cleaning.
Depending on your preferences, we can perform a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, and other procedures during your makeover. During each of these procedures, we will use sophisticated methods to undo the changes that you experienced during your pregnancy. Although we will adapt each of your procedures to fit the condition of your body, there are some common techniques that we are likely to use during your makeover.
We can include a mini tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck in your makeover package. During a full tummy tuck, we will begin by making a small incision in the skin between your hips. Next, we will make another incision in the skin near your navel. We will use these two incisions to remove excess skin from your body and repair some of the muscles in your abdomen.
If you receive a mini tummy tuck, we will make a very small incision under your bikini line. Next, we will remove some of the tissues in your lower abdomen. We may also repair your lower abdominal muscles.
If you would like to remove your extra fat and achieve a toned, defined physique, you should include liposuction in your makeover. We can use this advanced technique to sculpt your body and make your muscles look more defined.
During your liposuction procedure, we will inject a tumescent fluid into your body. This fluid will help us extract your fat cells. Next, we will use specialized techniques to remove some of the extra fat from your body.
Breast Augmentation With Lift
Going through pregnancy and breastfeeding your child may cause your breasts to move into a lower position on your chest. During a breast lift, we can reverse this change by removing extra skin from your chest and repositioning the tissues in this part of your body. After we complete your lift, your breasts will be in a higher, more attractive position on your chest.
If pregnancy caused your breasts to become deflated, you may decide to receive a breast augmentation during your makeover. During a breast augmentation, we will use implants to improve the size and shape of your breasts. This is a customized procedure, and we can place saline or silicone implants in your body. Depending on your needs, we can put these implants under or above your pectoral muscles.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
The length of your recovery time will vary depending on your health and the kind of procedures that you received during your makeover. In general, you will need to be prepared to take some time off from your job and childcare duties after your appointment is complete.
During the initial part of your makeover recovery, you will need to wear a compression garment and special bra over your treatment areas. After about two weeks, you’ll be able to start driving again. Although you should not engage in rigorous exercise for at least six weeks, we will advise you to begin taking short walks after you receive your makeover. These walks will improve your circulation and help your body begin the healing process.
Results and Expectations
It’s important to have a realistic idea of what to expect after your makeover is complete. To help you understand how your procedures will improve your body, we can show you before and after images of people who received makeovers in the past. In addition, we will be happy to address all of your questions and concerns during your initial consultation.
In general, you will notice positive changes in your breasts, stomach, and other features as soon as your makeover is finished. You will probably see the final changes in your body after about three months.
Creating a Healthy Lifestyle
Although your makeover will create significant changes in your body, your cosmetic procedures will not stop you from aging in the future. In addition, the benefits of your makeover may become less visible if you experience large weight fluctuations.
Fortunately, you can prolong your youthful appearance by living a balanced, healthy lifestyle. For example, you should eat balanced meals that include high amounts of fruits and vegetables and low amounts of processed foods. Once you are fully recovered from your makeover, you should also try to follow a regular exercise routine. For example, you might decide to take an exercise class or go on walks around your neighborhood with your family.
