Mommy Makeover in La Jolla / San Diego

The body undergoes massive changes during pregnancy and childbirth. Some women experience loss of volume and fullness in the breasts, some women are left with loose abdominal muscles and skin, and some women undergo cosmetic procedures after childbirth that they were considering for quite some time. A mommy makeover can include any of the following procedures: breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast lift), liposuction, or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

Common questions about mommy makeover

Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?

If you are a woman who is finished having children, and there are areas of your body that you are interested in improving, mommy makeover surgery might be right for you. Some changes in the body after pregnancy respond to exercise and diet, whereas some changes (loss of breast volume, excess abdominal skin) do not. Drs. Umansky will discuss your individual desires in your personalized consultation.

You should be in overall good health before considering any cosmetic procedure. Mommy makeover surgery is best performed once your body is close to full recovery from pregnancy. Each procedure has a slightly different healing time and restrictions, so you will want to discuss with your surgeon before undergoing surgery.

Who is not a candidate for a mommy makeover?

If you are considering having more children in the immediate future or still recovering from pregnancy, it’s recommended that you wait before considering a cosmetic procedure.
