Five Noteworthy Reasons to Consider Mommy Makeover Surgery

By: Dr. Sean Kelishadi, M.D. FACS


Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on areas such as the abdomen, breasts, hips, and thighs. A mommy makeover helps women sculpt and rejuvenate their bodies for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dr. Sean Kelishadi of SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA is a board-certified plastic surgeon who frequently restores the pre-pregnancy shape of his patients.

While most women choose breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery, a mommy makeover can include any combination of surgeries to help women reach their cosmetic goals. To achieve your pre-baby body, reach out to the friendly staff at SSK Plastic Surgery and schedule an individualized mommy makeover consultation. Here are five reasons a mommy makeover might be the ideal solution to revitalize your figure:

1. Customized mommy makeover procedures

The process of pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to some significant changes in the body, breasts, and abdomen. Although motherhood is a wonderful experience, many women feel less than confident with their looks following childbirth. A mommy makeover is a set of surgeries, usually performed at the same time, that target problem areas such as the breasts and abdomen.

One of the reasons women appreciate mommy makeover surgery is the ability to personalize the procedure based on their unique needs and desires. Since combination surgery restores multiple areas at once, patients can minimize recovery time and get back to their busy lives sooner. Whether you want to address sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or stubborn fat in the hips and thighs, a mommy makeover may be the ideal solution.

2. Added volume through breast augmentation

Every woman enjoys feeling confident in her body, and one way to achieve this is through breast augmentation and lift surgery. When pregnancy and nursing cause the breasts to sag and deflate, breast implants can add curves to the bustline once again. At our plastic surgery office, Dr. Kelishadi chooses breast implants for their innovative design and high-quality material. Saline or silicone breast implants can improve the size and shape of the breasts as determined by your personal cosmetic goals. You can discuss your options with Dr. Kelishadi during your mommy makeover consultation.

3. Slim down with liposuction

One of the best benefits of liposuction surgery is its proven track record and ability to remove stubborn fat caused by pregnancy. At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, we perform liposuction when traditional diet and exercise or lifestyle choices are not giving patients the shape they desire. During this procedure, a small incision is made in the target area, and Dr. Kelishadi will insert a thin tool called a cannula to suction out the unnecessary fat. Common areas for liposuction treatment include the waist and abdomen, back, hips, and thighs.

4. Tightened muscles with tummy tuck surgery

A tummy tuck can eliminate loose skin and fat in the abdomen to create a slimmer body contour. When pregnancy causes the abdominal muscles to separate, tummy tuck surgery can tighten the area to create a more toned midsection. Dr. Kelishadi can personalize this procedure based on the amount of work that needs to be done. To create a flatter belly, he will create an incision from hip to hip that is easily hidden beneath underwear or a swimsuit. Once the excess skin and fat are gone, patients can enjoy their newly smooth, toned appearance.

5. Personalized mommy makeover cost

There are a variety of factors that contribute to the overall mommy makeover cost. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kelishadi can give you an estimate and what to look for when assessing the cost of the procedures. Some of these factors include the surgeries chosen, facility and general anesthesia fees, prescription medications, and post-surgery garments. SSK Plastic Surgery understands that some patients who would like to get a mommy makeover may not have the budget for surgery at this time, so our staff will work with you to find the right financing options. We may also consider alternative procedures, such as nonsurgical solutions, to better meet your financial requirements.
