Mommy Makeover (Combination Procedures)
Motherhood Can Look the Way You Want it to in the Los Angeles Area
Pregnancy often takes a toll on the body: the breasts lose volume and begin to drop, the abdominal skin and muscles stretch and become loose, and excess fat accumulates in the hips, buttock, and thighs. At Cosmetic Surgery Institute, we have designed a comprehensive surgery to correct the after-effects of pregnancy. This combination of plastic surgery procedures is known as a "Mommy Makeover." Los Angeles-area women from Riverside to Palm Springs and beyond can renew their bodies with a set of surgeries customized for their unique shape and goals.
Childbirth affects every woman differently, and your Mommy Makeover surgery in the Los Angeles area should be tailored to address your personal concerns. Cosmetic Surgery Institute is committed to providing individualized care for your unique needs. Request a complimentary consultation online or call (760) 837-0364 to discuss your options.
Our Approach to Mommy Makeover Surgery
Our surgeons use a revolutionary procedure that can include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation or other breast enhancement procedure to minimize the lingering effects of pregnancy. Although these are the most commonly chosen procedures for a Mommy Makeover, our surgeons may also suggest other surgeries or treatments depending on your personal goals.
A Mommy Makeover can be performed as early as three months after breastfeeding has stopped, and the results can be truly life changing. Many of our plastic surgery patients report an improvement in body image and self-confidence after their procedure and experience a new outlook on life. Our surgeons view every Mommy Makeover as an opportunity for positive transformation. We take pride in creating results that surpass your expectations and leave you feeling beautiful and self-confident.

What to Expect from the Mommy Makeover Procedure
Before Mommy Makeover surgery, you will be expected to be in good health and to have maintained a stable weight for several months. Due to the high level of intricacy involved in combination procedures, general anesthesia is used most often. Your surgeon will then perform the procedures you have chosen in an efficient order to reduce downtime and Mommy Makeover price. Typically, the entire session can take several hours, with the specific duration depending on which elements are included.
Because of the additional downtime needed for combination surgeries, it is best to allow yourself two full weeks for recovery. Your surgeon will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure that you heal properly. Your results will start to develop over the next several weeks, with full results appearing in about three months.
Your Mommy Makeover Surgery Choices
What are my procedure options?
Since a Mommy Makeover combines specific procedures that target areas of the body affected by pregnancy—such as the abdomen and breasts—the surgery typically includes breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction or a tummy tuck. However, some of our Mommy Makeovers also include procedures— such as a facelift—to address changes that happened elsewhere on the body, or injectable treatments—such as BOTOX® Cosmetic—to refresh a tired appearance. Your specific surgery will be customized to meet your needs. This will determine the length of the surgery, expected recovery time, Mommy Makeover price, and other details.
Will my surgeries be performed simultaneously?
Although most Mommy Makeover procedures are performed at the same time, they don't have to be. Our patients typically choose to have their surgeries simultaneously to avoid a second procedure. Combining the various elements into one can lower the Mommy Makeover price and prevent the need for additional recovery time. You can schedule your procedures to fit your lifestyle.
I'm interested in a Brazilian butt lift. Can that be that considered part of a combination procedure?
Yes, the Brazilian butt lift is an increasingly popular way to enhance the buttocks. It combines liposuction and fat transfer techniques to enhance the shape. Since many mothers find that pregnancy and childbirth cause fat to shift on their body, with contours not returning to normal after the baby is born and breastfeeding is over, it is an excellent option for someone who has localized areas of excess fat, typically in the thighs, waist, or abdominal area.
Enhancing Your Look with More Than a Mommy Makeover
Moms who want to rejuvenate their skin can choose chemical peels, dermaplaning, or microneedling and PRP, in addition to a range of skincare products for use at home. Cosmetic Surgery Institute also offers laser vein treatments, as pregnancy can cause vessels near the skin to become visible.
