About Mommy Makeover in Newport Beach, CA
Is a Mommy Makeover Worth It?
Plastic surgery after pregnancy helps women in Orange County feel proud of their bodies, and it may help with any emotional issues related to the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. At Orange County Plastic Surgery, your reconstructive surgery after childbirth can be as extensive or simple as your desire. There is no “one size fits all” approach. Postpartum plastic surgery should be seen as a time to celebrate your new baby and your role as a mother. We can help you understand this type of post-pregnancy surgery more during your consultation.
Am I a Good Mommy Makeover Candidate?
Most mothers are good candidates for a Mommy Makeover. Generally speaking, you should be in good health and able to go through the healing process, which can be quite lengthy. This means that you will need support from family and friends with daily tasks and caring for your newborn. We recommend that you spend at least one year after childbirth trying to lose weight and tone your body with diet and exercise. Your weight should be stable, as well. If you have a Mommy Makeover, any weight fluctuations will affect the results.
What is Typically Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Your Mommy Makeover is customized to your desires. You can address any part of your body, such as your skin, breasts, tummy, vaginal area, thighs, hips, buttocks, and face.
Pregnancy and Your Skin
After you give birth, you may notice that you have some loose skin on your body. This is caused by your skin being stretched as your belly grew, as well as by changes to your weight and breast size. Your skin has a limited capacity to stretch, and this is referred to as elasticity. Stretch marks postpartum are a type of scar tissue that forms as your skin expands. If you have loose areas of skin or stretch marks on your belly after pregnancy, non-surgical belly skin tightening procedures can help. After pregnancy, extra skin on your body can also be removed as part of surgical procedures, such as a thigh lift or tummy tuck.
Liposuction After Having a Baby
Have you successfully lost weight after pregnancy with diet and exercise, yet still have bulges and bumps on your body? Postpartum liposuction removes those pockets of isolated fat. Lipo, after your baby is born, can target a specific part of your body or be combined with other surgeries to refine the results. Some of the most common areas for liposuction after pregnancy are the thighs, buttocks, stomach, arms, neck, and face.
Post Pregnancy Belly
Your abdominal area is the most affected part of your body after pregnancy. The abdominal muscles and skin stretch, and you may have bulges of extra fat and loose skin. Women can restore their stomachs after pregnancy with a tummy tuck as part of a Mommy Makeover. Abdominoplasty is a stomach procedure postpartum that gives you a flat, toned midsection. It can be combined with liposuction.
Post Pregnancy Breasts
Your breasts fill with milk during and after pregnancy, and this changes the shape and size of your breasts. At Orange County Plastic Surgery, we offer three types of breast procedures as part of your Mommy Makeover. A breast lift helps with sagging breasts, and you can combine it with breast augmentation. You may also want to consider breast reduction to make your breasts smaller.
Mommy Makeover with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer is a way to enhance your natural contours without relying on synthetic substances and silicone implants. A Mommy Makeover with a BBL (Brazilian butt lift) is a body contouring procedure that targets your backside. Because the buttocks and abdomen are most affected by a pregnancy, you may want to consider a Mommy Makeover with a BBL and tummy tuck together.
Vaginal Rejuvenation After Pregnancy
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that restores your vaginal area to reverse the effects of childbirth. Vaginal rejuvenation may target the labia or tighten your vaginal area.
Dr. Bunkis will ensure that our mommy makeover patients have the best in recovery care and pain management after the procedure.
What to Expect During Recovery from a Mommy Makeover
Mommy Makeover recovery depends on the combination of procedures that you choose. To the degree possible, we combine procedures for each surgical appointment. This reduces your overall recovery time. Expect to heal for at least six months to one year, with the first few weeks being the most challenging. We recommend that you have family or friends stay with you to help with daily tasks and caring for your child. You will see the full Mommy Makeover results once the swelling completely subsides.
Mommy Makeover scarring can be significant or minimal, depending on the procedures. Abdominoplasty and thighplasty produce the most significant Mommy Makeover scars. Breast surgery scars are well-hidden in the breast crease or armpit area. Liposuction scars are barely noticeable except upon close inspection.
