What is a Mommy Makeover?
Orange County in Los Angeles, California: one of the loveliest places with some of the most beautiful bodies and faces on the planet! Beauty comes in different forms.
Every woman, whether a mommy or not, wants to look her best and deserves to do something special just for herself. When she improves her appearance and shape to look her best, she also feels a hundred times better about herself, her life, and her future. The confidence gained from looking better and younger may carry over into the bedroom, where studies have proven that confidence plays an important role in comfort, sexiness, feeling desirable, an increased frequency of sexual relations and feelings of closeness with a partner, and overall happiness.
It also can become a winning factor in the workplace, improving one’s chances of longevity with certain occupations in today's competitive job market. Studies also have proven that confidence can banish depression and enhance personal interactions in many types of circumstances. Clearly, such gains would be worthwhile in all facets and relationships of a woman’s life, and she is definitely worth it!

Mommy Makeover Reviews
"Just want to write a review on the experience with this Doctor so far. My wife just had a pretty extensive surgery last week. She was very nervous but I can tell you honestly this doctors bed side manner is second to none from all the appointments before the surgery but what really has been great is how much he cares after the surgery. He text me multiple times right when surgery was over. Then came down and talked with me for almost an hour. His was just after a 7 hour surgery.. This was so comforting because we were all anxious.my wife is now 5 days post op and he's text or called regularly answering any questions and making sure she is ok. So id give his customer service 5 plus stars.. Now comes the even better part. To say we are blown away with the results is an understatement. This doctor from day one appointment all the way to executing the plan is 5 stars plus all day. We've already referred a friend to him and we don't do that lightly. With all the bad things or poor service you here about out there I had to write this review. This is one of the good guys out there. Thank you Doc for really caring.. We wish you many years of success.. You deserve it.."- K.K. / Yelp / Aug 21, 2016
"I've wanted to write a review for awhile, but I can't come up with the right words to describe how amazing my experience has been with Dr Kelishadi and his team. From the minute I walked in his office, I felt at ease and comfortable. He is so friendly, welcoming and has a great sense of humor. I was so nervous about even just discussing my options, but those fears went away quickly. He listened to all my needs & concerns, and I never once felt rushed. Each consult, Dr K spent at least an hour with me. After the first consult, I booked my surgery and never even met with another surgeon. I didn't feel the need to since I knew he would do exactly what I wanted with fantastic results. He also gave me a great price!After surgery, Dr K and his team checked in with me regularly, even texting from his personal phone to make sure my recovery was going well and see if I had any questions/concerns. I was pretty nervous throughout recovery and wondering if I'd love the final results, but he constantly reassured me that everything went perfectly and I'd be happy. Being happy is a huge understatement! I would strongly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery to anyone interested in getting work done. Dr Kelishadi and his team are top notch!"- K.V. / Yelp / Jul 19, 2017
"This is a review from the husband of a patient of a mommy makeover... That being said, I felt like I was the patient of Dr Kelishadi because he treated me that way. He kept me informed. He asked if I had any questions. He went out of his way to text me outside of office visits. He cares about his patients and their significant others. Now about his work: amazing. He kept telling me I'd love it. I sort of brushed it off because of the unknown, but can say 10000000% he was right. He has given my wife unbelievable confidence and selfishly I am having a TON of fun with her (Good thing I'm snipped). Pre surgery he was amazing, and post surgery the first thing he did was find me in the lobby to walk me through everything. He would text me randomly to check in and prepared us for the fun journey we went on. The whole process honestly made our marriage stronger and I owe it to Dr Kelishadi for preparing me to be strong for my wife and prepare her to be able to enjoy the adventure. If you're on the fence or hesitant, I assure you he is worth every penny. Best experience! AND GO LAKERS!"- J.C. / Yelp / Dec 13, 2018

"Mommy Makeover - Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift - Dr. Kelishadi is a rock star! I feel very blessed to have found such a great doc to do this surgery. His team, both Shea and Alejandra, are super nice and help you throughout the process. After a lifetime of heavy DD breasts, which were both pendulous and sagging after childbirth, I have beautiful C cup perky breasts. When I first saw them I began to cry because of how happy I was with..."- W. / RealSelf / Mar 26, 2019
Should I Receive a Mommy Makeover?
Do you feel uncomfortable with a particular physical trait, such as your breasts or abdomen? In the upper half, breasts undergo changes over the years, especially due to the constant pull of gravity, to insufficient support,ill-fitting bras, and, for some, to pregnancy and breastfeeding. In the lower half, sometimes even small women have a pot-belly despite years of exercise to that area, and the strength of abdominal muscles may lessen while aging or after childbirth; the belly protrudes through clothing, sometimes requiring women to buy a larger size for a proper fit in the waist and the abdomen. This may be the case even if you aren’t a mommy and you may want to look better and feel more comfortable by eliminating or reducing the problem.
Mothers from all walks of life have beautiful stories to tell about how they brought children into the world. However, most women who come into my office prefer to verbalize that story, not to have their bodies tell it for them. Plastic surgeons in Orange County (preferably board-certified) feel privileged to work with such an extraordinary group of women who are bold enough to take the step to recover their confidence. Although pregnancy is an amazing process, the fact that mothers tend not to feel so amazing about their appearance afterward is why the Mommy Makeover has become a popular request in my Orange County Plastic Surgery office.
If you are a mommy, do you want to get back to the size, shape, and firmness that certain parts of your body had before being affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding? For example, the inflation and deflation of breasts relating to the milk supply and the pull of breastfeeding can take quite a toll on breast size, shape, and position on the chest wall, as well as on the nipples and their direction. In cases of excessively stretched skin or deflated breasts, surgical intervention is the only method that will bring lasting results. A Mommy Makeover may be just what you need to have the edge for the beach and your daily lifestyle.
Feeling prettier, more desirable, or more comfortable can involve intimate private parts, too. In some women, labia minora hypertrophy can cause discomfort or problems with hygiene, which can keep some women from wearing shape-revealing clothing such as leggings and other tight-fitting pants, or it may simply alter personal image. No woman should have to spend a lifetime in physical and mental anguish when help is readily available.
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Whether or not you’re a mommy, your goal may entail body contouring with techniques that:
- Remove unwanted fat or loose skin via liposuction or abdominoplasty, respectively achieve breast reshaping with mastopexy to lift ptotic/droopy breasts (breast lift), or breast augmentation.
- Provide buttock augmentation with implants and/or autologous fat grafting (“Brazilian butt lift”).
- Correct labia minora hypertrophy or another defect or malfunction with Orange County labiaplasty, whether the problem is structural or one of personal comfort.
No concern, whether seen or unseen, should be ignored--your quality of life is too important. There's nothing wrong with getting high-quality help from your board-certified Orange County cosmetic surgeon to become more confident, even when a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise hasn't been enough to reach your goals for a desired body shape and firmness.
What is the Recovery Process After a Mommy Makeover?
At SSK we have many tools in our arsenal to help you look and feel your best, whether you choose one procedure or a combination of procedures in your Mommy Makeover. Please give our attentive staff an opportunity to hear your concerns and discuss your options with you. We will advise regarding the most-effective strategy and techniques for your body shape and condition, but we will not recommend what you don’t need. Of course, our knowledge and skill are of utmost importance--supplemented by our equally important and unparalleled listening skills, understanding and compassion, care and respect for you. We will handle your situation privately and confidentially, answering your questions to your satisfaction. Together with you, we'll fully address the custom-tailored cosmetic surgery procedure(s) you select and all other necessary issues for your maximized comfort and safety. Dr. Kelishadi's extensive training as a surgeon at the finest institutions will do much to help in attaining the optimum outcome for you. Together, through the most-reputable Mommy Makeover Orange County has to offer, we’ll do our best to achieve the goals that you envision to skyrocket your confidence.
We’ll also communicate clearly with you to clarify your post-surgical needs, including home care and your expected recovery time. Patience is the key; you shouldn't expect to bounce right back after undergoing such a combination of procedures. Not all patients will have the same Mommy Makeover or an identical healing process. However, the tummy tuck tends to be the primary factor in determining when normal activities can be resumed, which is typically within 4 weeks, when you are assessed and recommended by your surgeon. Afterward, when permitted, a careful regimen of diet and exercise can do much to protect your worthwhile investment in yourself.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover depends on what you include in your surgical plan. During your consultation, Dr. Kelishadi will create a treatment plan and discuss your potential costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in rejuvenating your body after having children. Because of this, we recommend focusing on getting the results you want rather than looking for the lowest cost. SSK Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Kelishadi, he will listen to your needs and concerns, then examine your body. Following your assessment, he provides suggestions on what to include in your treatment plan. Typically, women choose breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. They can also combine it with liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can significantly change your body. While nonsurgical options offer many benefits, you may prefer surgical treatments for more dramatic results. During your consultation, Dr. Kelishadi can discuss both surgical and nonsurgical options. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will let you know if treatments, like vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa or noninvasive skin tightening with Thermi, can help.
Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a rejuvenated shape, it does include surgical scars. Dr. Kelishadi makes precise incisions that appear as small as possible. He places most incisions in areas that you can easily conceal with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery instructions, Dr. Kelishadi or a member of his team will go over scar care so they heal correctly.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until your family is complete. This ensures your results aren't compromised. Generally, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing during pregnancy. If you get pregnant after a mommy makeover, we can perform a second surgery to rejuvenate your results.
