Mommy Makeover

Los Angeles Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover has been frequently mentioned in the media in Los Angeles. Hence, many mothers present to their Los Angeles plastic surgeons asking for this procedure. A mommy makeover is not a technical term used by plastic surgeons. A mommy makeover includes a set of plastic surgery procedures that would restore or improve the shape of the woman’s face and body after childbearing. Following pregnancies many women experience changes in the shape of their body and face.

More commonly women are bothered by stretched abdominal skin and weak abdominal muscles, sagging breasts with diminished volume, fat excess in various areas. Therefore, a common combination of a mommy makeover includes the following procedures:

1. A tummy tuck –  a procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and flanks as well as tighten stretched abdominal muscles. Dr. Grigoryants specializes in an advanced tummy tuck procedure called lipoabdominoplasty. Lipoabdominoplasty allows to remove more fat from the abdominal skin which helps achieve a more flat abdominal contour than in a conventional tummy tuck. In addition, techniques used by Dr. Grigoryants allow for faster drain removal (as early as 3-4 days after surgery as opposed to 10-14 days with a conventional tummy tuck).

2. Liposuction  –  used to removed areas of fat excess.

3. Breast surgery  such as breast lift with or without breast augmentation  or breast reduction.

4. Labiaplasty  some women complain of skin excess in labia minora. During labiaplasty, skin excess is removed.

5. Rhinoplasty – some women state that they have disliked their noses for  a long time or noticed a change in their nose with age and request     this procedure as part of their mommy makeover.

6. Facial or eyelid surgery

Various combination of plastic surgical procedures can be performed as a mommy makeover. The most common combination of Mommy Makeover procedures in Los Angeles is  a breast lift, breast implants,  tummy tuck , and liposuction.   Dr. Grigoryants will discuss with you your goals and decide which combination of procedures can be performed safely and produce best results.  Some procedures can be combined at the same time and others may need to be performed at a later time.

Preparing For Mommy Makeover

General Health

  1. Patients undergoing mommy makeover procedures need to be generally healthy (without any significant  medical problems).
  2. A stable weight needs to be achieved. Overweighed patients  need to lose as much  weight  as possible before surgery.  Patients who are constantly gaining weight are not good candidates for this surgery.
  3. Absolutely no smoking is allowed at least 2 months before and after surgery.  Smoking can cause healing problems and increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis.
  4. Patients who are anemic would need to be treated first to improve hemoglobin levels (e.g. Iron or Vitamin supplementation).
