What Does a Mommy Makeover Entail?

You love your children and the family you’ve created but don’t really love what pregnancy and childbirth has done to your body. Even if you’ve reached your pre-pregnancy weight, you may notice that your body still hasn’t bounced back. Your breasts may sag, your stomach has formed a pooch, and skin hangs in areas it never did prior to having kids.

At Desired Beauty, we want to help restore your pre-pregnancy body with a mommy makeover. Skilled cosmetic surgeon Farzin Kerendian, DO, FACOS, FAACS, offers a combination of plastic surgery procedures that target a post-baby body, customized for your particular concerns.

Here are some of the procedures that you may be included in your mommy makeover. Before signing up, be sure that your family is complete, as future pregnancy will alter your results.

All about a mommy makeover

A mommy makeover refers to a collection of cosmetic surgical procedures that address post-pregnancy and after-nursing problem spots that may include your breasts, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

During your initial consultation at our office, Dr. Kerendian goes over areas that are causing you the most distress and learns your desired results. He then creates a plan that may include:

The mommy makeover is a popular procedure that can boost your self-confidence and enhance your self-esteem as you move through the ever-changing adventure of parenthood.

A mommy makeover enhances diet and exercise efforts

You can lose weight and maintain good muscle tone with a healthy diet and regular physical activity. But these tried-and-true weight-loss strategies don’t always get you back to your pre-pregnancy shape. 

You may have achieved your ideal weight, but you still have stubborn pockets of fat, sagging skin, and deflated breasts that make you less than happy with your physique.

During pregnancy, your skin often stretches beyond its capacity to become tight again once you’ve delivered a child. Abdominal muscles weaken and become lax during pregnancy as well and often respond poorly to strengthening exercises, no matter how well or how frequently you perform them.

If you chose to breastfeed your baby (or babies), your breast shape may be forever changed in terms of shape, lift, and volume.

During a mommy makeover procedure, Dr. Kerendian focuses on removing excess skin, rebuilding muscle health, restoring breast lift, and reshaping your curves in a way that exercise and diet can’t. 

Of course, following your recovery from a mommy makeover, continued healthy habits help you maintain your new look for the long term.

Dr. Kerendian provides detailed instructions regarding post-surgical care and sees you for regular follow-up visits after the procedure. 

Your exact recovery depends on which procedures are included in your mommy makeover, but expect it to take several weeks for the surgical incisions to heal and the swelling to fully resolve. You can expect steady improvement and will be able to return to normal activities soon.
