Mommy Makeover Beverly Hills

What Is A Mommy Makeover?

Being a mother is among the most rewarding, fulfilling, and greatest experiences a woman can have. The physical toll of motherhood can drastically change a woman’s body when compared to their younger figures before having children. Pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and aging in general can all affect your body’s overall appearance. Although there are instances of women regaining their pre-pregnancy shape almost immediately after childbirth, many women struggle with this. The mommy makeover procedure has become a popular option for mothers looking to restore their youthful figure and shape that cannot be achieved with diet and exercise alone.

Fortunately, top reconstructive and plastic surgeon Dr. Brent of Moelleken Plastic Surgery specializes in the popular mommy makeover procedure. We have locations in Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara, Bakersfield. Please call one of our offices to schedule your consultation to begin your transformation today!

Effects Of Motherhood On A Woman's Body

Pregnancy:

  • Muscles in the abdomen become stretched, loosened, and weakened. This causes your stomach to appear more flabby and saggy before your pregnancy.
  • In some cases the muscles in your abdomen can even separate during pregnancy. This condition is called diastasis recti or diastasis recti abdominis.

Childbirth:

  • In most cases, changes women experience with their labia’s size and shape during and after pregnancy are temporary. Although in some cases, the inner lips may portrude farther than the outer lips.
  • The labiaplasty or vaginoplasty procedure is a popular treatment to help contour the labia to your desired size and look. It is important to understand the difference between undergoing a labiaplasty for cosmetic reasons versus reconstructive or functional reasons.

Breastfeeding:

  • Breasts expand and contract so drastically throughout the process of milk production. It is common for a woman to go up several cup sizes then drop back down once their baby is done breastfeeding.
  • Many women experience a loss of volume in their breasts once they are finished with breastfeeding. The appearance of sagging, lower hanging breasts is due to the loss of volume, as well as the skin being stretched and expanded during milk production.

Aging:

  • Natural effects of aging such as weight gain, sagging skin, volume loss, and stubborn pockets of fat can occur.
  • The body parts that often struggle with sagging or fat deposits are the hips, waist, stomach, thighs, butt, lower back, neck, and upper arms.

Are You A Good Candidate For A Mommy Makeover?

If you are considering a mommy makeover procedure, we recommend you do your general research and call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brent Moelleken. Your consultation will cover what to expect of the procedure and how they align with your aesthetic goals based on Dr. Brent’s expertise and analysis. Your medical history will also be discussed including:

  • Any prior conditions or surgeries.
  • An account of medications or supplements you are currently taking or have taken recently.
  • Your recreational drug or tobacco usage history.
  • Your motivations for undergoing a mommy makeover and your expectations.
  • Your aesthetic goals and desires.

Although the coined term for this procedure is the “mommy makeover" it does not mean you need to have had children to undergo it. This combination of procedures not only is beneficial for women who have experienced maternity, but for any woman who feels like they can benefit from a physical makeover.

Procedure Overview

The following is a general guideline of the stages throughout the process.

Consultation & Assessment

  • Discuss goals and expectations of the procedure with Dr. Brent.
  • He will layout what recommendations based on your specific case.

Procedure

  • In most cases, although mommy makeovers involve more than 1 procedure, they are typically performed in a single visit.
  • This will save you time as well as money on anesthesia and operating room costs. Also, the convenience of performing all procedures at once also means there is only 1 recovery period.

Recovery

  • As a rule of thumb, for a tummy tuck it is recommended to have at least 2 full weeks of recovery before returning to a sedentary job or light physical activity.
  • Around 6 weeks post operation you can expect to gradually increase your physical activity level.
  • By 3 full months you can expect to be able to resume your regular activities.
  • Keep in mind that these timetables are for a patient recovering from only a tummy tuck. A more comprehensive mommy makeover means you can expect recover to be a bit longer.
  • While in recovery it is important to not exert yourself and have help around or nearby as you heal.

These procedures can be performed separately or at the same time and the combination of procedures is performed in a certain order to maximize results and recovery while keeping incisions at a minimum. Many patients prefer a combination of procedures over separate operations but the decision of how many surgeries you need and the best way to complete them will be evaluated during your consultation with Dr. Moelleken.
