About Mommy Makeover
There is no denying that having children can be one of life’s great pleasures; but with the toll on the body that pregnancy can take, many women seek ways to restore their appearance and get back their pre-pregnancy physique. A Mommy Makeover can encompass a number of cosmetic plastic surgery options at the same time, or as a series of procedures designed to:
- Reduce extra skin and tighten the area of the midsection
- Reduce sagginess in the breast
- Eliminate fat pockets that have formed in any area of the body
- Address areas exhibiting stretch marks
Dr. Bayati will discuss your goals with you and help you decide what areas you would like to improve with a Mommy Makeover procedure.
Mommy Makeover Options
A Mommy Makeover can provide you with a complete rejuvenation of a number of body areas affected by pregnancy. Procedures involved can include:
After delivering children, the breasts often begin to sag, losing their “perkiness” and taking on a more aged appearance. Breast lift surgery lifts the breasts and nipples to a higher position. Excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened for a more youthful, fit appearance.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
For an even greater rejuvenation of the breasts, breast augmentation with implants adds volume and fullness to the bustline by making them larger and more proportionate to your body frame. Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and types, giving you a more contoured bust and a more sensual appearance. Dr. Bayati will go over all aspects of breast enlargement with you and help decide what type of implants will best meet your specific needs.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Over the course of a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are under pressure from the uterus, getting pulled apart and often separated. Our Newport Beach tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgeon can tighten these muscles and pull the surrounding abdominal skin taut, getting rid of excess tissue and giving the abdomen a flatter, more toned appearance.
Many areas of the body can store fat deposits that are extremely hard to get rid of, even with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a commonly-performed procedure designed to target these specific areas of fat and eliminate them. Liposuction can be performed in body areas including the thighs, hips, love handles, arms, abdomen, chest, and buttocks.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Recovery from a Mommy Makeover will depend on the types of procedures you will undergo. Patients should expect some degree of bruising and swelling in the treated areas, and should plan to rest at home for a period of time after surgery. At your initial consultation with Dr. Bayati, she will talk with you about the areas of the body which you would like to target for rejuvenation and the procedures which will be best for your needs. She will also give you all the details of recovery and what you can expect in the weeks following surgery.
