About the Mommy Makeover

All the wonders of childbearing bring so much joy and excitement. Unfortunately, pregnancy and breast feeding can be very hard on a woman's body, which is why Harvard trained, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Juris Bunkis offers mommy makeover procedures to restore a woman's physique. A mommy makeover combines several procedures to achieve the pre-pregnancy body you desire. At Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, a breast and abdominal procedure are frequently combined during a mommy makeover. These surgeries can be performed all at once or staged over time. During a private consult at our practice, we will discuss what areas of the body would benefit most from a mommy makeover and create a treatment plan that is unique to you. 

Ideal Candidates

During a private consultation, Dr. Bunkis will listen to all the concerns each patient has about her body to see if she is a good candidate for these procedures. Many women seeking these treatments and surgeries have:

  • Breasts that sag and droop from multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding
  • A tummy with bulges of fat that did not go away with after-pregnancy weight loss
  • Extra skin on the arms, buttock, or thighs that did not bounce back after pregnancy weight 
  • A less than desirable shape to their breasts or buttocks and need enhancement to fill in the lost volume after the baby
  • Multiple areas of the body with visible, unattractive stretch marks

The best candidates for the mommy makeover are women who are finished having children. We strongly encourage women considering the mommy makeover to not plan on having more children once the surgeries have taken place as it will damage the skin by stretching and weight gain and will require more plastic surgeries in the future.

What to Expect

Pregnancy changes many areas of the body, and a mommy makeover will require careful planning and could be implemented in stages. Dr. Bunkis has years of experience performing these surgeries in one setting; however, sometimes the health of the patient requires more than one surgery date. The end result is still the same; just expect that some women will have more surgeries than other women and will endure a longer recovery time.

Some of the mommy makeover procedures may include a combination of:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift (with or without implants)
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Thigh Lift
  • Butt Lift
  • Arm Lift
  • Labiaplasty
  • Skin rejuvenation (laser treatments, BOTOX, fillers)

Dr. Bunkis will ensure that our mommy makeover patients have the best in recovery care and pain management after the procedure.

Anticipated Results

New moms love the fact that once the extra skin has been removed and tightened, their stretch marks are drastically reduced. Our practice can minimize the remaining stretch marks with nonsurgical treatments such as lasers, microdermabrasion, and/or chemical peels. This does not mean there will not be surgery scars. As with all plastic surgeries, our highly-credentialed plastic surgeon will do the best to minimize scarring with careful incision techniques and placement. While the recovery time does take several months, patients are able to return to a normal routine in about 4-6 weeks and should wait for clearance from the plastic surgeon before starting to exercise again. The entire mommy makeover transformation could take up to a year for recovery. The results are life-changing for many women.
