Can a Mommy Makeover Address Stretch Marks and Loose Skin?

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


Pregnancy and childbirth are transformative experiences for a woman, both emotionally and physically. However, they often leave behind physical changes like stretch marks and loose skin that can affect your confidence. This is where a mommy makeover can be a game-changer. Dr. Sean Kelishadi at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, offers personalized mommy makeovers designed to rejuvenate your post-pregnancy body. But what exactly can you expect from this procedure?

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a customized combination of plastic surgery procedures aimed at restoring your pre-pregnancy body shape. Typically, it includes a tummy tuck, breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction. Dr. Kelishadi, a renowned plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, CA, carefully evaluates your specific needs and designs a treatment plan that targets your unique concerns.

How effective is a mommy makeover for stretch marks and loose skin?

One of the most common questions Dr. Kelishadi hears at SSK Plastic Surgery is: How do you get rid of stretch marks? A mommy makeover may be able to significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks, especially those located on the abdomen, as the skin is tightened during a tummy tuck. Loose skin, particularly after significant weight loss or childbirth, is also effectively treated through this procedure. The tummy tuck removes excess skin, resulting in a firmer, more youthful abdominal profile.

What other benefits can you expect?

Beyond addressing stretch marks and loose skin, a mommy makeover offers several other benefits. It can:

  • Enhance breast volume and position, especially after breastfeeding
  • Improve the contour and shape of your body
  • Boost your self-esteem and body image

Dr. Kelishadi understands the importance of feeling confident in your own skin, which is why each mommy makeover at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, is tailored to the individual.
