Mommy Makeover

For many women, becoming a mom is one of the greatest joys in life. Unfortunately, it can also take a physical toll that exercise and healthy eating can’t reverse. Physical changes from pregnancy can make you self-conscious about wearing certain clothes or swimwear or even getting undressed in front of your partner. A mommy makeover can help restore your body and your confidence. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Armen Vartany performs mommy makeover surgery for women from Glendale, Pasadena, and throughout Los Angeles at his Burbank practice.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover combines breast and body contouring procedures to address the physical changes resulting from pregnancy and breastfeeding. These can include:

  • Excess skin and stretch marks on the abdomen
  • A protruding belly
  • “Deflated,” sagging breasts
  • Residual rolls or pockets of fat

These are issues that spending more hours at the gym or skipping dessert can’t remedy.

The procedures typically included as part of a mommy makeover enhance the shape and size of the breasts, create a flatter abdomen, and contour the waist, flanks, or virtually any other area of the body affected by pregnancy. These procedure options include the following:

Tummy Tuck

Abdominal skin stretched during pregnancy often does “snap back” after a woman has a baby. This is especially true after multiple pregnancies, and no amount of crunches can tighten sagging skin. For some patients, abdominal muscles may be separated, causing a “belly pooch.”

Liposuction

Removing pockets of stubborn fat from the abdomen, flanks, or thighs creates the smooth, contoured appearance that patients want.

Breast lift

Breasts often lose their shape and volume after a woman has children, which may make her feel less feminine. A breast lift restores a more youthful perkiness to the breasts.

Breast Augmentation

Breast implants can either restore the volume lost after having children or increase the size of the breasts so they’re larger than they were before pregnancy. Patients often choose to combine a breast lift with implants.

Additionally, some patients can benefit from nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Vartany customizes mommy makeover procedures after your consultation, once you’ve described your cosmetic goals.

Is It Safe to Combine Procedures in a Mommy Makeover?

Patient safety is Dr. Vartany’s priority, and he will always inform a patient if he believes that performing multiple procedures during a single operation poses a needless risk. Most patients, however, can benefit from having the procedures combined as part of a mommy makeover.

The benefits include:

  • Having to schedule only a single operation
  • Planning for only one recovery (which is especially important for patients with young children)
  • The cost-effectiveness of paying certain surgery-related fees only once
  • Seeing the results all at once

 It’s also important to be in good overall health and to have maintained a stable weight for several months before undergoing a mommy makeover. A tummy tuck and liposuction are not designed to be weight-loss procedures. Dr. Vartany recommends that patients have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less before scheduling the procedure.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

The cost of mommy makeover surgery will depend on the procedures included in the operation and several other factors. After discussing the concerns you have about your physical appearance during your consultation, Dr. Vartany will recommend specific procedures, and we’ll provide a detailed price quote based on those recommendations. You’ll have the chance to review this quote before making a decision about the surgery.

How Long Does Recovery Last After a Mommy Makeover?

When planning for your recovery after a mommy makeover, expect to take at least 2 to 3 weeks off from work if you have a primarily desk job. That’s the time typically needed to recover after a tummy tuck. Breast augmentation or breast lift procedures heal more quickly. We provide detailed post-op instructions to all patients that, when closely followed, help minimize discomfort and reduce the chances of complications.

One of the most common things we hear from mommy makeover patients at our Burbank practice is that they wish they’d decided to get the surgery earlier. If you’ve been considering a mommy makeover, request a consultation with Dr. Vartany using the online form or call us at (818) 500-0823 to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Vartany is just amazing! He has performed my breast lift and breast augmentation and I absolutely love it!! He is so kind, patient, and very detail orientated. He answered all my questions and was very realistic about what the outcome was going to be like. He doesn't sell you a story, he explains how each body type is different and even if you do the same surgery the results can be different from person to person. His entire staff is wonderful as well. Front desk was welcoming and friendly, and the surgery nurses very caring and thoughtful. Surgery went so smooth, it felt like I just went to sleep and woke up. No extra commotion. They called me the next day to see how I was doing and at my post-op everyone was just very attentive. Overall, it was a great experience!!! I recommend that Dr. Vartany to anyone who wants a beautiful natural look.

Get laser hair removal by time block instead of by area. Get more areas covered for your money. Laser facial is awesome, got rid of my preggo spots and dark freckles!

One of the best doctors around. I had three procedures on my nose and my eyes.For years I was skeptical to go under knife as I am a 56 years old male with some underling heart problems. The surgery was practically painless and to my wonder recovery was super fast. On cosmetic side, he did exactly what I asked for, no more, no less. The entire staff are super polite and professional.
