Mommy Makeover in San Diego, CA
Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center offers a mommy makeover for women in San Diego, La Jolla, and Carmel Valley, as well as surrounding areas of California. We work with you to find the combination of body contouring that will restore your body after childbirth.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is customized to the needs of the individual patient. The procedures included in a mommy makeover are selected based on the specific problem areas.
A mommy makeover could include any of the following treatment options:
- Breast lift to restore sagging breasts to a more attractive position on the chest
- Breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of breasts
- Breast reduction to reduce oversized, heavy breasts
- Tummy tuck to flatten a flabby or protruding abdomen and eliminate stretched-out abdominal skin
- Liposuction to eliminate unwanted fat from the stomach, hips, thighs, legs, arms, and lower back
Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari usually combine these procedures into one operation so that there is only one recovery. Undergoing a mommy makeover allows women to achieve and show off their overall desired look sooner. As an added benefit, undergoing a mommy makeover means patients only have to pay for certain fees (like operating room fees and anesthesiologist fees) one time only. You can see the results in our mommy makeover before and after pics.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in San Diego, CA?
The average cost of a mommy makeover is dependent on the combination of surgeries you choose to help you achieve your desired results. As part of your consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
For the best results, a mommy makeover candidate should be at a healthy weight close to their target weight, follow healthy lifestyle habits, and not plan to have any more biological children. Future pregnancies could reverse the effects of a mommy makeover. Dr. Mozaffari can explain more in person during a consultation.
Does a Mommy Makeover Leave Scars?
Like all surgical procedures, scarring is inevitable with a mommy makeover. Dr. Mozaffari is known for his superior incision techniques; he strategically places tummy tuck incisions low enough where they are easily concealed by the underwear line or natural creases.
For breast augmentation and breast lift, Dr. Mozaffari uses incision patterns that leave minimal scarring. Over time and with good care, the subsequent scars should fade dramatically. Dr. Mozaffari provides patients detailed instructions on how to care for their incisions and scars so they heal quickly and properly.
What Should I Expect During Mommy Makeover Recovery?
The results that you see in our mommy makeover before and after is at the end of the healing period. The initial recovery period for mommy makeover typically takes two weeks. During this time, patients will need to take time off from work and other normal activities including bending and lifting heavy objects.
It is recommended that patients enlist a loved one to help with childcare, household chores, and errands. Although vigorous exercise is off limits during the first weeks of recovery, Dr. Mozaffari recommends that patients take short walks to promote good circulation. Other than this, patients need to get as much bed rest as possible.
Follow-up appointments with Dr. Mozaffari are important to ensure that the patient is healing safely. Depending on the healing progress, Dr. Mozaffari may make modifications to the recovery or provide recommendations on when the patient can return to work or resume other normal activities.
When Will I See the Results of My Mommy Makeover?
Although patients will notice some changes to their body immediately after surgery, it may take several months or even a year for the final results to become visible. This is because it takes time for any residual swelling to go down, scars to fade and, if the patient undergoes breast enhancement, for the breasts to settle into their final position. The best thing patients can do to ensure beautiful results is to be patient and not rush their recovery process.
How Long Do the Results of My Mommy Makeover Last?
Results from mommy makeover can be long-lasting. In order to maintain their slimmer and more attractive physique, mommy makeover patients should practice a healthy lifestyle, including maintaining a stable weight, eating healthily, and exercising regularly. Future weight gain can sabotage results from a mommy makeover.
