MOTHERHOOD CAN LOOK THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO IN THE PALM DESERT, INDIO, AND LOS ANGELES AREAS

Pregnancy often takes a toll on the body: the breasts lose volume and begin to droop, the abdominal skin and muscles stretch and become loose, the hips widen, and excess fat accumulates in the hips, buttock, and thighs as you gain weight. 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 post-baby bodies with a set of surgeries customized for their unique shape and goals.

OUR APPROACH TO MOMMY MAKEOVER SURGERY IN PALM DESERT

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, as well as 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.

Combination Before And After

*Individual patient results may vary.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURE

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.

ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURE?

During your consultation, we’ll discuss what’s involved with you and help you decide whether a Mommy Makeover is the right choice, or if another surgical or non-surgical procedure would be more effective when it comes to the results you are seeking. It’s best to wait for at least six months after giving birth to have this procedure.

Ideal candidates for this procedure are in a good state of overall physical and mental health, have reached or are close to their goal body weight, maintain a positive outlook and realistic expectations, and are finished having children. Although you can still have the Mommy Makeover if you plan on having more children, know that new pregnancies in the future can “undo” the results of the procedure, since a growing baby and breasts will stretch the skin anew.

PREPARING FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER

Before Mommy Makeover surgery, you will be expected to be in good health and to have maintained a stable weight for several months. You may need to get lab testing or a medical evaluation to ensure that you’re healthy enough for surgery, which is especially important for a Mommy Makeover, since multiple surgeries are involved. Patients will be asked to refrain from or adjust taking certain medications, such as blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs that increase the risk of bleeding. They will also be asked to quit smoking several weeks before having a Mommy Makeover, as the habit can delay healing and increase the chance of complications.

Prepare your home so that you have a peaceful area to recover, have prescriptions filled, and arrange for someone to drive you to and from the surgery.

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.

A Mommy Makeover at the greater Los Angeles area’s Cosmetic Surgery Institute can be customized to meet your specific needs. 1) Breast augmentation can add volume, alter the shape, and improve symmetry of the breasts, while a lift raises sagging breasts to a higher position on the chest and a reduction takes away volume as necessary. 2) A tummy tuck can remove excess fat, repair a damaged abdominal wall, and tighten lax skin for a flatter belly. 3) Liposuction is target fat removal to slim down the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, and more.

WILL MY SURGERIES BE PERFORMED SIMULTANEOUSLY?

Although most procedures that make up a Mommy Makeover 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. Although a Mommy Makeover usually involves procedures to enhance the abdominal and breast areas, some patients also wish to restore their lower body to its previous appearance, or to make the lower and upper body match up better.

During pregnancy, the center of gravity and posture often change in subtle ways while the pelvic floor and gluteal muscles weaken, so your butt sometimes develops a flatter, more tucked in shape as a result. Moreover, 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. A Mommy Makeover is an excellent option for someone who has localized areas of excess fat—typically in the thighs, waist, or abdominal area—that won’t budge even after working out or dieting. It allows you to move fat away from areas where you don’t want it and use the same fat to give the butt a rounder, more shapely appearance.

YOUR MOMMY MAKEOVER RECOVERY

Because of the additional downtime needed for combination surgeries, it is best to allow yourself two full weeks for recovery. It’s normal to have some degree of swelling, bruising, and soreness during this time. After a Mommy Makeover, your incisions will be wrapped in gauze or bandages. If you’ve had breast surgery, you may be asked to use an elastic bandage or support bra. For a tummy tuck, we recommend wearing a compression garment to optimize your results and ensure a smoother recovery.

Your surgeon will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure that you heal properly, including advice on how to care for surgical sites and which medications to take orally or apply to reduce the chance of infections. Your Mommy Makeover results will start to develop over the next several weeks, with full results appearing in about three months.

ENHANCING YOUR LOOK WITH MORE THAN A MOMMY MAKEOVER

Moms who want to rejuvenate their skin after a Mommy Makeover can choose chemical peels, dermaplaning, or collagen induction, in addition to a range of skincare products for use at home. Skin resurfacing treatments help to remove the damaged or dead cells that block the skin barrier and induce collagen production in the deeper layers to give your skin a brighter, renewed glow. Microneedling and collagen induction can also minimize stretch marks due to pregnancy. Cosmetic Surgery Institute also offers laser vein treatments, since pregnancy can cause vessels near the skin to become visible.
