Mommy Makeovers in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

While the miracle of childbirth is a beautiful and sacred thing, many women find themselves unhappy with the changes that pregnancy brings to their bodies. The Mommy Makeover is a tailored combination of complementary procedures, designed to restore your pre-pregnancy figure or achieve your goal body. Commonly performed after at least 6 months after pregnancy (or concluding breast feeding for breast procedures), the Mommy Makeover offers a way to dramatically turn back the hands of time and boost a new mother’s confidence in her appearance.

Treatment Overview

First, you will meet with Dr. Anita Patel to share your concerns and discuss the results that you hope to achieve. This will be followed by a review of your medical history and a physical exam. Dr. Anita will then go over the risks and activity restrictions, and give you time to ask questions.
The Mommy Makeover may include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)liposuction, and breast lift and/or breast augmentation. The procedure is designed to address a number of concerns, including stretched or loose skin, focal weight gain, drooping or deflation of breasts, and loss of firmness. During your consultation, Dr. Anita will recommend the specific combination of procedures best suited to achieving your desired goals, based on her experience and expertise.

Prior to the surgery, you will fill out consent forms. General anesthesia will be administered, and we recommend that you arrange to have someone drive you to and from the appointments.

  • Post-Op Activity: Walking is encouraged the same day of surgery to prevent blood clots. Avoid activity that places pressure or stretching on the incision areas, including exercise, lifting, or housework. No full exercise until 6 weeks post-surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Mommy Makeovers Safe?

In Mommy Makeovers, a number of surgical procedures done at the same time, and as with any surgery, there are risks involved. Generally speaking they are safe procedures, when done in good candidates and taking appropriate safety precautions.

What Can You Expect From a Mommy Makeover?

After a typical Mommy Makeover, you can expect lifted and/or fuller breasts, a tightened abdomen with removal of loose skin, and a smaller waistline.

How Do You Prepare for Mommy Makeover Surgery?

To prepare for a Mommy Makeover, you want to wait at least 6 months after pregnancy for a tummy tuck (and 6 months from the completion of breastfeeding for any breast procedure), and be at a stable weight. You also want to make sure you have help at home during the postoperative period, since you should not be doing any heavy lifting (this includes any children over 15 lbs) during your early recovery period. During your recovery period, instead of you taking care of everyone else, someone needs to take care of you.

How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take?

Mommy Makeovers generally take about 5-7 hours depending on what specific procedures are being performed.

What is the Recovery Time for Abdominoplasty? What is the Recovery Time for a Mommy Makeover?

The recovery time for a abdominoplasty is generally 2 weeks off of work (or at minimum 1 week), and 6 weeks off from working out. The main concern during recovery is making sure you are walking, to prevent getting a blood clot. The recovery from a Mommy Makeover is the same, so for a busy mom, it may be advantageous to have one recovery period rather than several if the procedures were done one at a time.
