What Does a Mommy Makeover Consist Of? | Waltzman Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery


Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are all part of a beautiful but challenging experience enjoyed by mothers. Unfortunately, women are often dismayed by the toll that pregnancy, giving birth, and nursing can have on their bodies and self-confidence. When a healthy diet and rigorous exercise routine cannot fully address these issues, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Waltzman in Long Beach, CA, is happy to offer his patients a mommy makeover.

A mommy makeover is a perfect solution to reversing the changes that occur to a mothers’ physique during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. With the right advice, guidance, and professional expertise, as a mother, you can restore your appearance to what it was pre-motherhood and get back that toned and sexy physique.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a specialized combination of body contouring procedures generally performed together in a single session. These can drastically reverse the physical effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing on a woman’s body.

Because no two women are alike, Dr. Waltzman makes sure the procedure is custom-tailored and appropriate for each patient. Since the breasts and abdomen are affected the most by motherhood, a mommy makeover will often center on breast and abdomen contouring, with additional elements being be added as needed.

Your Mommy Makeover

A combination of breast surgery procedures making up a mommy makeover is what many mothers choose to help reverse the effects of motherhood, and these are outlined below.

Breast Augmentation: Using breast implants or fat transfer, this procedure can restore breast volume lost after pregnancy, achieving fuller, more rounded breasts with improved symmetry.

Breast Lift: Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises the breasts by removing excess skin, tightening, and reshaping the surrounding tissue to support the breasts’ new contours.

Breast Reduction: Reduction mammaplasty is a breast reduction procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin, resulting in breasts sized to be more in proportion with the body.

Tummy Tuck: Abdominoplasty is tummy tuck surgery that removes excess fat and skin and, in some cases, restores muscles that have become weakened, stretched, or separated during pregnancy, creating a smoother and firmer abdominal profile.

Liposuction: Slims and reshapes targeted areas of the body by removing stubborn pockets of fat and improving body contours and proportions.
