What is a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic surgeon Dr. Saba Motakef regularly works with women who want their pre-pregnancy figure back. While pregnancy and childbirth are a miraculous process for women, they inevitably will alter the look, shape, and size of certain body parts — and could leave you feeling a little frustrated. The good news is that it's possible to reclaim a slimmer appearance with the assistance of a mommy makeover surgery performed at Motakef Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of surgeries, often including a breast augmentation and/or lift paired with a tummy tuck, to reshape the body and reverse some of the changes that occur with pregnancy. While the breasts and abdomen are the areas most commonly addressed, depending on your needs, virtually any body part affected by pregnancy, weight gain, or nursing can also be treated. We welcome you to contact our office in Anaheim Hills, CA to schedule your consultation for a mommy makeover to discuss what strategies would work best for you.

What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?

Small fat deposits and loose skin don't always respond to diet and exercise, no matter how hard you work. A mommy makeover can help you achieve results that may not be possible through traditional methods alone. Patients love working with Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa because they receive:

  • An individualized treatment plan: We understand that every mom is different and therefore requires a unique surgical approach.
  • Outstanding results: Dr. Motakef is dedicated to providing dramatic outcomes that look and feel great, no matter your goals.
  • A safe and comfortable experience: We use the latest techniques to help ensure a smooth surgery and recovery.
  • An experienced and compassionate team: From your initial consultation to post-operative care, our team will be with you at every step.

Am I A Candidate for A Mommy Makeover?

There are a number of factors that may make you an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover at Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa. During your consultation at our practice in Anaheim Hills, CA, we'll listen to your goals and concerns and assess your body in order to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Typically, ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are those who have:

  • Undergone pregnancy and childbirth
  • Saggy, deflated breasts
  • Loose skin in the abdominal area
  • Undesirable and stubborn pockets of fat in the lower back, abdomen, or flanks
  • Not achieved slimming results with diet and exercise
  • A desire to regain their pre-pregnancy figure
  • Finished having children

How Is a Mommy Makeover performed?

The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring treatment which Dr. Motakef can specifically tailor based on the areas of concern to be addressed. While many different procedures can be combined to achieve your goals, the most common treatments address the abdomen and breasts. To treat the abdomen, a tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction of the flanks, abdomen, and/or lower back. To treat the breasts, a breast lift can be performed, often in combination with breast implants. Mommy makeover surgeries are generally outpatient procedures performed while a patient is under general anesthesia, taking 4 – 6 hours, depending on the specific procedures performed. Patients generally go home after a brief stay in a private recovery area.

What to Expect After A Mommy Makeover

Once you leave the surgery center, you will begin to recover at home with the detailed post-operative instructions we provide. Depending on the procedures performed, the recovery process for a mommy makeover can take a little bit longer than the average plastic surgery procedure. Moving around and walking straight can be difficult the first 1 to 2 weeks after a tummy tuck surgery. Similarly, patients will often have surgery performed simultaneously on their breasts, and this will require additional healing and down time. Even while final results may not be seen for 3 to 6 months, the majority of women are able to get back to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Most patients are able to return to work around 4 weeks after this procedure. Exercise can resume in around 6 to 8 weeks. In the end, this surgery at Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa can lead to amazing outcomes and help restore your self-confidence.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary, depending on what you are including in your surgery. Generally, pricing for a mommy makeover can run anywhere from $20,000 - $35,000+ depending on your specific combination of procedures. In your consultation, Dr. Motakef will need to create an individual treatment plan and then based on this, his patient care coordinator will be able to discuss possible costs. Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa accepts several payment methods, and we can help you find options for low-interest financing.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Motakef, he will listen to your concerns and goals carefully before performing a physical examination. Following his examination, he can give you recommendations on what specific procedures should be a part of your treatment plan. Typically, a mommy makeover includes breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) combined with a tummy tuck and liposuction. If you have additional areas of concern, these can be addressed as well at the time of your mommy makeover surgery.

Will I have scars after my mommy makeover?
While a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new figure, it does leave surgical scars. In most cases, patients will have a scar from either a breast augmentation or lift in addition to a tummy tuck scar. Dr. Motakef will make every effort to meticulously repair your incisions and plan your scars carefully so that they can be concealed by swimsuits and underwear. As part of your post-surgical instructions, Dr. Motakef or a member of his staff will go over scar care so your incisions heal flat and fade with time.

What if I get pregnant again after mommy makeover surgery?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so that the surgical results aren't compromised. Generally, all treated areas of your body are at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. Should you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, another surgery may have to be performed to refresh your results.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, so nonsurgical treatments usually aren't enough to produce noticeable improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Motakef will discuss both surgical and nonsurgical options. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will let you know if procedures like nonsurgical fat reduction (including CoolSculpting), laser vaginal rejuvenation (for example, ThermiVa), or noninvasive skin tightening (for example, ultherapy or Thermage) may be considered.

Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, be sure to tell Dr. Motakef during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after implants, with the right placement and technique. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, which is why it is best to wait until after you are done having children to have breast surgery.
