What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a personalized suite of procedures designed to rejuvenate and enhance a woman’s body after the rigors of childbirth. Dr. Yaghoubian understands that pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding impact each woman differently. Therefore, she crafts a unique Mommy Makeover plan for every patient to address their specific needs and restore confidence.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Dr. Yaghoubian typically includes the following procedures in her Mommy Makeover:

Breast Lift:

Many mothers desire a breast lift to elevate and reshape their breasts, correcting any sagging or asymmetry caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Yaghoubian expertly removes excess skin and tissue, enhancing the appearance of the nipples for a natural and youthful contour.

Breast Augmentation:

Loss of breast volume after childbirth can be addressed with breast augmentation. Dr. Yaghoubian offers both implant-based and fat transfer augmentation options to restore fullness and shape to the breasts, tailored to each patient’s preferences and aesthetic goals.


Stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise are common concerns post-pregnancy. Dr. Yaghoubian employs liposuction to sculpt and refine the body, permanently eliminating unwanted fat deposits and restoring a more

Tummy Tuck:

Abdominal muscles often become lax, and excess skin accumulates during pregnancy. A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal muscles, removes excess fat and skin, and contours the waistline for a firmer and more toned appearance. Dr. Yaghoubian meticulously sculpts the abdomen to achieve natural-looking results that enhance the overall silhouette.

Mommy Makeover FAQ:

Like any surgical procedure, a Mommy Makeover carries certain risks and potential side effects. These may include infection, bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, scarring, changes in sensation, and dissatisfaction with the cosmetic results. It’s crucial to discuss these risks thoroughly with your surgeon and follow all pre and post-operative instructions to minimize the chances of complications. Additionally, choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in Mommy Makeover procedures can significantly reduce the likelihood of adverse outcomes.

The recovery time after a Mommy Makeover can vary depending on several factors, including the specific procedures performed, individual healing abilities, and adherence to post-operative instructions. In general, patients can expect a recovery period of about 6 to 8 weeks before returning to normal activities, including work and exercise. During the initial phase of recovery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, discomfort, and restricted mobility. It’s essential to follow the surgeon’s post-operative care guidelines diligently to promote proper healing and minimize complications. Additionally, some activities, such as heavy lifting and strenuous exercise, should be avoided for several weeks to ensure optimal recovery.

The decision of whether to wait until you’re done having children before undergoing a Mommy Makeover is a personal one and depends on various factors. While it’s possible to undergo a Mommy Makeover before having all your children, it’s important to consider that future pregnancies and breastfeeding can potentially affect the results of the procedure.

If you’re planning to have more children, it might be advisable to wait until after you’ve completed your family to undergo a Mommy Makeover. This can help ensure that the results of the procedure are long-lasting and not compromised by subsequent pregnancies.

However, if you feel that the physical changes you’ve experienced after childbirth are significantly impacting your confidence and quality of life, you may choose to proceed with a Mommy Makeover earlier. In such cases, it’s essential to discuss your future plans with your plastic surgeon during the consultation process. They can provide personalized advice based on your individual circumstances and help you make an informed decision about the timing of your procedure.

Absolutely! The term “Mommy Makeover” can be a bit misleading because it’s commonly associated with women who have had children, but it’s not exclusively for mothers. Anyone who is bothered by changes in their body, such as sagging breasts, excess abdominal skin, or stubborn fat deposits, can consider a Mommy Makeover to address these concerns.

Whether you’ve had children or not, if you’re interested in improving your body contours and enhancing your overall appearance, you can discuss the possibility of a Mommy Makeover with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your individual concerns and goals to determine the most appropriate combination of procedures for your needs.

The duration of a Mommy Makeover procedure can vary depending on the specific combination of surgeries involved and individual factors. On average, a Mommy Makeover can take anywhere from four to six hours to complete. However, this timeframe can be shorter or longer depending on factors such as the complexity of the procedures, the patient’s anatomy, and the surgeon’s techniques.

During your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, they will discuss the details of your desired procedures and provide you with a personalized estimate of the surgical time involved. It’s essential to allocate enough time for the surgery itself as well as for pre-operative preparations and post-operative recovery.

In a traditional Mommy Makeover, multiple procedures are typically performed during a single surgical session. This approach offers several advantages, including reduced overall recovery time and cost compared to undergoing each procedure separately.

Common procedures included in a Mommy Makeover may include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, and sometimes procedures like buttock augmentation or thigh lift, depending on the individual’s needs and goals.

Combining procedures into one surgical session requires careful planning and consideration by both the patient and the surgeon. However, it’s essential to ensure that the patient is healthy enough to undergo a more extended surgery and that the surgeon is experienced in performing multiple procedures simultaneously.

During the consultation process, your surgeon will evaluate your medical history, current health status, aesthetic goals, and surgical options to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you. They will also discuss the potential risks and benefits of combining procedures and address any concerns you may have before proceeding.
