What is a Mommy Makeover?

Child bearing is a beautiful creation in life but the changes due to a mother’s body may not be too beautiful. Multiple pregnancies may change the women’s body that is no longer as attractive as before. A lot of mother’s struggle with their new body and can not fix it with exercise and dieting. The area of the body that is dramatically affected is the breast and the abdomen or tummy. The Mommy Makeover focuses on reversing the shape of the breast and abdomen to a new and more attractive shape.

A typical Mommy Makeover includes 3 procedures:

  • Standard Tummy Tuck or Extended Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Breast Augmentation with or without some type of breast lift.


Why these 3 procedures?

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Well during 9 months of childbearing, a mother’s abdomen is stretched which causes loss of abdominal wall muscles tone and or diastasis (separation of the rectus abdominus muscle). In addition, pregnancy may create excess or redundant skin hanging down the abdominal region. The inner girdle that holds the internal organs gets stretched. Many mothers will try to do extensive exercising and dieting but even exercising cannot get rid of the redundant or hanging skin or correct the problem of the  abdominal wall muscles. Abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat and tightens the fascia of the abdominal muscles/ wall. The incision is made below the upper aspect of the pubic hairline, low enough to cover the incision with bikini, pants and under garments. This procedure will also help or eliminate stretch marks immediately above the belly button down to the pubic hairline. Dr Kalantarian (OC Dr K) performs a high tension abdominoplasty / a high definition abdominoplasty.

Weight gain is very common during pregnancy. The goal of liposuction is to remove the fat build up in troubled areas and sculpture the body and try to create a more attractive shape.


Breast Augmentation

After pregnancy, a woman’s breast can change dramatically. Breast Augmentation procedure is also needed to gain back a mother’s pre-baby body. During pregnancy, breast milk is produced which eventually after breastfeeding will often reduce in size and leave excess skin with a flat upper region. Breast feeding can result in saggy breasts. In some cases, mother’s may need a breast lift. Undergoing Breast Augmentation, will enhance the size and shape of a mother’s breasts.
