What all is included in a mommy makeover?

Mommy makeover surgery is fully customized to meet the unique needs of each patient. Most often, a mommy makeover includes a combination of treatments and procedures designed to reverse the unwanted side effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Some of the most common procedures included in a full mommy makeover are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
  • Liposuction
  • Labiaplasty (vaginal rejuvenation)

Additionally, many women choose to have nonsurgical treatments, such as cosmetic injectables, added to their mommy makeover for an even more dramatic transformation. During your initial consultation for mommy makeover surgery in Newport Beach, Dr. Kelishadi will examine your areas of concern, discuss your desired outcome, and personalize a surgical plan to best help you meet your needs.

Do you have to be a certain age for mommy makeover surgery?

While there is technically no minimum or maximum age requirement for mommy makeover surgery, there are certain factors to consider when determining whether it’s the right time for your mommy makeover. Ideal patients for full mommy makeover surgery should be:

  • In good health
  • At or near their goal weight
  • Nonsmokers
  • Have healthy motivations for surgery
  • Have realistic expectations for their results
  • Done having children
  • Committed to maintaining a stable weight after surgery

One of the most important considerations when choosing the best time for mommy makeover surgery is whether or not you plan to have more children in the future. It is certainly safe and possible to have children after a mommy makeover, but the side effects of pregnancy – including weight fluctuation – can significantly impact your mommy makeover results and lead to the need for a second or subsequent procedure. For this reason, patients are encouraged to wait until they have finished building their families before undergoing mommy makeover surgery. Patients should also be at or near their goal weight and have maintained that weight for at least 6 – 12 months before having mommy makeover surgery in order to avoid unwanted changes in their results.
