Three Advantages of Combining Multiple Procedures in a Mommy Makeover

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


After the incredible journey of pregnancy and childbirth, many moms find themselves craving their pre-baby bodies. Diet and exercise may help to an extent, but certain areas, like the tummy and breasts, often require a little extra assistance. That's where Dr. Sean Kelishadi at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, comes in. He specializes in the "mommy makeover," a combination of procedures that typically includes liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation.

What are the benefits of combining multiple procedures?

Combining multiple procedures into a single mommy makeover offers several advantages. First, undergoing a one-time anesthesia and surgical event minimizes overall medical risks and recovery time. You'll also save both time and money since you're bundling everything together. Additionally, combining procedures allows Dr. Kelishadi to better harmonize your body's proportions, delivering a more cohesive and natural look.

  • Minimized medical risks: Less exposure to anesthesia and fewer surgical dates mean a reduced risk of complications.
  • Cost and time-effective: Pay for one surgical event, one anesthesia, and endure one recovery period.
  • Harmonious results: Achieving a balanced, natural look is more feasible when multiple procedures are combined.

How can liposuction enhance the mommy makeover?

Liposuction is a procedure that removes stubborn fat deposits from targeted areas like the abdomen, thighs, and arms. When included in a mommy makeover, it complements other procedures like the tummy tuck and breast augmentation. For instance, while a tummy tuck focuses on removing loose skin and tightening abdominal muscles, liposuction can precisely remove fat from the waistline, resulting in a more contoured and streamlined silhouette.

What about other procedures like Brazilian butt lift and labiaplasty?

While liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation are the most commonly included procedures, the mommy makeover can be customized to include others, like the Brazilian butt lift or labiaplasty. A Brazilian butt lift uses fat from other parts of the body (often harvested during liposuction) to enhance the buttocks. Labiaplasty can address physical discomfort or self-consciousness that may have arisen post-childbirth. Dr. Kelishadi, a leading plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, CA, will consult with you to tailor a mommy makeover that aligns with your specific goals and needs.
