Our mommy makeover in Los Gatos combines multiple procedures to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body, addressing issues such as sagging skin, breast changes, and excess fat. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty and give you the confidence you deserve.
Reclaim Your Pre-Childbirth Body
Mommy makeover is a comprehensive set of cosmetic procedures designed to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body, often following significant changes brought about by childbirth and breastfeeding. The makeover usually includes a combination of procedures, such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. The treatments are personalized for each patient based on their individual needs and aesthetic goals. Mommy makeovers aim to enhance self-confidence, restore self-esteem, and empower mothers to feel their best selves.
Mommy Makeover Corrects:
- Sagging or drooping breasts due to breastfeeding or age
- Loss of breast volume or shape
- Loose, excess skin around the abdomen
- Separated or weakened abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
- Excess fat in the abdomen, hips, thighs, or other areas
- Stretch marks on the abdomen, hips, or breasts
- Unwanted fat deposits in the upper arms, thighs, or back
Your Mommy Makeover Session
At Maan Plastic Surgery, your mommy makeover in Los Gatos will be tailored to your specific needs and goals. Dr. Z utilizes a combination of techniques to resculpt the body, which may include liposuction to reduce excess fat and create more attractive contours. To address sagging skin and loose body parts, Dr. Z will remove excess skin, tighten, and suspend underlying tissues to restore a smoother, lifted appearance. The length of surgery varies depending on the complexity of the procedures and your physical condition.
Candidates for Mommy Makeover:
- Women who have completed their family and do not plan to have more children
- Women who are in good health and have no underlying medical conditions
- Non-smokers, or those who are willing to quit smoking before and after surgery
- Women who have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure
- Women who have maintained a stable weight for at least six months
- Women who are willing to follow postoperative instructions and take time to rest and recover
Your Journey to Recovery: Side Effects & Downtime
After your mommy makeover, you will need to take some time to rest and recover. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these are normal and will subside over time. Depending on the extent of the procedures, you may need to take several days to two weeks off from work to allow your body to heal.
