Mommy Makeover in San Diego

Moms in San Diego, let’s get real. We love our kids, but pregnancy and childbirth are just not always nice to our bodies. Even if you take care of yourself, eat right, and exercise religiously, some things just won’t snap back without help. Breasts that were once full and curvy are now droopy and deflated. You might even have sagging skin and stretch marks on your belly that weren’t there before.

You can keep all the great parts of being a mom and ditch the battle scars with a mommy makeover. This customized cosmetic surgery is designed to help you get your body back, restoring your figure to the way you remember it back in your pre-baby days. Because your mommy makeover is tailored to your needs, our board-certified plastic surgeons will help you decide which procedures will give you the body of your dreams!

What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?

The great thing about your mommy makeover is that it’s truly customized and all about you! Most people concentrate on 3 areas: breasts, tummy, and hips. And we’ll let you in on a little secret: A growing number of women are also choosing vaginal rejuvenation procedures as part of their mommy makeovers!

The top 4 mommy makeover procedures are:

  • Breast Lift: With or without implants, a breast lift can give the “girls” back their perkier shape and position.
  • Tummy Tuck: If your abdominal muscles have stretched or you have excess skin hanging around, an abdominoplasty can tighten your tummy, helping you to feel confident in a swimsuit once again.
  • Liposuction: Baby fat isn’t only for the little ones. Liposuction can enhance your mommy makeover, creating a beautiful contour to your hips, belly, thighs, and even back!
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation: Let’s face it—childbirth is rough on our bodies. If you’re feeling less than great about your body “down there,” you have a number of procedure options to help you be more comfortable and confident.

If you’d like to glow up your post-baby body, but just can’t take time for recovery right now, consider a nonsurgical treatment. CoolSculpting® Elite reduces stubborn fat on your belly, hips, and thighs without any downtime. Cellfina® can help bust cellulite. And don’t forget about your face! BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® rejuvenate your look after those sleepless nights, and laser treatments banish a variety of imperfections for clear skin and a youthful glow.

What Is Mommy Makeover Recovery Like?

As a mom, naturally you are concerned with how any surgery and recovery time will affect your family. Because every mommy makeover is tailored to an individual’s needs, the recovery process is a little different for everyone.

Will I Need Help With Childcare After a Mommy Makeover?

In general, you’ll need to have help around the house full-time for 2 to 3 days after surgery, and up to a week or more if you’ve had a tummy tuck. While most people can begin their return to daily activities (such as driving, light housework, a desk job, and shopping) within 2 to 3 weeks, you’ll need continued assistance with heavier lifting and strenuous aspects of childcare for the first 4 to 6 weeks.

Our Promises To You

How Long Will I Need to Take Off Work After a Mommy Makeover?

Most people need 1 to 2 weeks off work. How much time you will need away from work depends on the procedures you are having and the nature of your job. If you are only having breast enhancement and liposuction, for example, you may be ready to go back to a desk job in about a week. If you are having a tummy tuck and/or your job requires physical labor, you will need more time, up to 3 weeks off.

When Can I Exercise After a Mommy Makeover?

Expect a 4- to 8-week break from exercise. You should be able to resume easy walking within a few days after a mommy makeover, but strenuous activity will be off-limits for several weeks. A tummy tuck will require the longest hiatus from exercise—about 6 to 8 weeks—as your incisions will need to be fully healed before heading to the gym, pool, or ocean.

What Are Scars Like After a Mommy Makeover?      

As with any plastic surgery procedure, you’ll have some scars after a mommy makeover. By choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, you can be sure that your surgeon has the skill and knowledge to produce minimized scarring. Moreover, your scars will fade over time and will be in places that are easily hidden by clothing—even a bikini. We can also help you find a good scar minimizing treatment to help your scars heal smoothly and reduce redness.
