Pregnancy is a beautiful sight to behold, but it can cause undesired changes to the body that may leave a woman uncomfortable in her skin. Commonly known as Mommy Makeover, this extensive body contouring includes a tummy tuck, breast lift, and a variety of other procedures for areas of the body that may have been affected during pregnancy. Mommy makeover is best for healthy women who want to “get their body back” after one or multiple pregnancies. This extensive surgery will help you rediscover your body and allow you to be the hottest mom in town. Dr. Marguerite Bernett, a cosmetic surgeon in Irvine, is eager to work with you and discuss how a Mommy Makeover can change your life for the better.
A mommy makeover incorporates multiple procedures, so the surgical technique used is different for each surgical case. The technique also varies depending on the medical condition and aesthetics of the patient’s body. During your consultation, our talented staff will create a personalized plan for your aesthetic goals and go into detail about the advanced surgical techniques that will be applied. For many, a combination of techniques will create beautifully shaped breasts, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, reshape a more natural and appealing body contour, and eliminate stubborn areas of fat.
A mommy makeover is considered an invasive surgery and most women will require an overnight stay in the hospital. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can range in duration depending on how many procedures are combined. Most women find the recovery to be challenging, but quickly gain hope as they begin to recognize the dramatic difference the surgery has made in their appearance. Full recovery can take between 6-9 months although most patients go back to their normal routine in about 3-4 weeks. Exercise is discouraged for at least 6-8 weeks post-surgery.
It is important to note that scarring is usually a part of this procedure. For this reason, it is important for patients to find a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this surgery. A seasoned surgeon will ensure that scarring is kept at a minimum and that the results are not only gorgeous, but also long lasting.
Patients often save money with mommy makeovers due to the combination of addressing several areas at one time. The surgery will typically include dramatically transforming the breast and tummy region, and the average cost varies widely between $8,000 and $17,000.
