What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of body contouring procedures. They are performed together to improve the physical changes to your body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. At his San Diego plastic surgery practice, Dr. Sadrian will meet with you to discuss your goals and then develop a customized plan that is right for you. The general approach to Dr. Sadrian's mommy makeover procedures includes a combination of surgical procedures, focusing on the breasts, waistline, and general body sculpting.

Breast lift:

During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts can increase in size as much as a full cup size or more. Returning to normal can mean a significant loss in volume with noticeable sagging. Many women choose to restore their buoyancy and regain a youthful, perky lift with a breast lift.

Breast augmentation:

To restore lost volume after pregnancy and nursing, implants are used to augment the size of the breasts and enhance their shape and symmetry. For women who would like to achieve larger, rounder breasts without implants, a fat transfer breast augmentation can be performed by harvesting fat from an area of the body with surplus fat and injecting this fat into the breasts.

Body sculpting:

Moms can experience drastic changes in the body and skin shape and condition after having children. Battle scars include stretch marks, sagging skin, excess fat, and other issues. A body lift would be the procedure procedure to treat these conditions.

Tummy tuck:

After the baby weight is lost, many moms struggle with excess skin and fat on the abdomen. A tummy tuck will remove the excess fat and skin, and in most cases, restore weakened or separated muscles that have resulted due to pregnancy.


Stubborn pockets of fat in various areas of the body can build up and be quite difficult to budge after having children. Liposuction eliminates these fat pockets, contouring your body and achieving sleek, slim lines. Common areas sculpted with liposuction are the abdomen, thighs, bra area, back, and arms.

Brazilian butt lift:

After pregnancy, the volume in the bottom can deflate, leaving a flat or sagging bottom. Many women want to renew this area and achieve a perky, round butt. During a Brazilian butt lift, fat is removed from one area of the body with extra volume, then injected into the bottom, resulting in a lifted, round butt that perfectly compliments the defined waist and enhanced breasts that a mommy makeover achieves.

Recovery After The Procedure?

A mommy makeover typically allows you to recover at home. Your recovery can take one to two weeks depending on the specific procedures included in your mommy makeover. Following your mommy makeover surgery at Dr. Sadrian's San Diego office, you can expect to experience soreness, swelling, and bruising. You will be limited in what you can lift – including children and pets! It is important to have someone help you at home for at least 24 to 48 hours after your procedure. Avoid heavy lifting, sports, vigorous exercise or other physical activities for about six weeks.

How Long Will it Take to See The Results?

The results of your surgery will slowly be revealed. You’ve just had surgery and as with any surgery, recovery time is needed. During the first three to six weeks of your recovery period, your abdomen and breasts will be swollen. This is nothing to worry about; it’s a natural part of the healing process. Swelling diminishes over the days and weeks. The final results, and a trimmer, more attractive look finally achieved after about three months.

When can I start exercising?

Depending on your healing process and which procedures you have done, you will need to wait about two months to exercise vigorously again. You will be able to return to light-level activities within about two weeks.

How long does the procedure take?

Depending on the number of procedures you’re having and which procedures you choose, the procedure length varies. Most mommy makeovers take between three and seven hours.

Can I still have more kids after a mommy makeover?

While you will be able to have children after a mommy makeover, the cosmetic results of many mommy makeover procedures may be impacted or even reversed. Dr. Sadrian recommends waiting to have a mommy makeover until you are sure you’re done having children.

Will a caesarian section or hysterectomy affect mommy makeover results?

A hysterectomy or C-section will not affect your contour after a tummy tuck procedure or other mommy makeover surgeries. Aside from scarring, these surgeries do not have an impact on your external contour.

Are there any risks of a mommy makeover?

Like any surgery, a mommy makeover includes risks such as bleeding, change in sensation, pain, scarring, infection, numbness, and others.
