MOMMY MAKEOVERIn Newport Beach, CA

Restoring Your Sense of You

Nourish Your Identity In Motherhood

Many women experience a loss of identity as their focus shifts from their personal life, marriage, relationships, career, or passions to caring for their growing family. While this is a natural and understandable occurrence in moms, it can sometimes prevent life from being as fulfilling as it should be. A Mommy Makeover can help you regain your sense of self to enhance your life as a mother and beyond. A “mommy makeover” is one of the most confidence-transforming procedures Dr. Richland performs.

Rather than a single procedure, a Mommy Makeover comprises a carefully curated selection of several procedures to restore your pre-baby body. Each Mommy Makeover is a customized and unique combination of procedures which may include:

  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
  • Breast lift (mastopexy)
  • Breast augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Renuvion minimally invasive skin tightening

IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER RIGHT FOR YOU?

Why A Mommy Makeover?

There’s no shortage of factors that can impact your body’s appearance, especially for mothers: age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations, to name but a few. Even with the strictest workout regimen and a balanced diet, there are certain changes in your figure that even a healthy lifestyle alone cannot remedy.

Love Motherhood. Love Your Look.

embrace the joys of motherhood

Although these changes occur both gradually and over time as part of the aging process, they are often accelerated by pregnancy and breastfeeding. A Mommy Makeover can empower you to embrace the joys of motherhood – while embracing a reflection that resembles your physique prior to pregnancy.

Ideal Candidates

Over time, with age, pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight fluctuations, our bodies may undergo changes that no amount of diet and exercise can fix.

You may be a great candidate for this procedure if you feel your breast have lost volume, are “droopy”, or appear low on your chest wall, or if you wish to address excess abdominal tissue and skin laxity. While these changes occur gradually over time and with age, they are often accelerated by pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you are looking to get your pre-pregnancy body back, then a Mommy Makeover is for you.

The Mommy Makeover is designed for anyone who wants to sculpt, enhance, or tighten various areas of their body after childbirth or breastfeeding. Candidates should be healthy enough to undergo surgery, with no underlying health conditions that may increase the risk of complications. In addition, it’s essential to have realistic expectations and a positive outlook on your procedure and your results.

A Mommy Makeover may be an ideal procedure for you if:

  • Your breasts have lost volume or appear “droopy”.
  • Your breasts are lower on your chest wall.
  • You see a stomach “pouch” in the mirror (excess abdominal tissue and skin laxity).
  • Your breasts have lost their youthful shape, position and firmness.

MOMMY MAKEOVER OPTIONS

Just as no two women share the same motherhood journey – no two Mommy Makeover procedures are the same.

Dr. Richland spends the time listening to your goals and concerns to ensure your Mommy Makeover procedure is uniquely tailored to your body type, individual needs, and desired outcome. The combination of procedures may include:

  • Face – facial rejuvenation, fat grafting, skin tightening
  • Breast – breast lift (mastopexy), breast augmentation
  • Body – tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, skin tightening
  • Arms & legs – liposuction, skin tightening, arm or thigh lift

Mommy Makeover FAQs

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures for women who are looking to get their pre-pregnancy body back. The most common two procedures combined are a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift (mastopexy), but your Mommy Makeover may also include breast augmentation, mastopexy augmentation, and/or liposuction.

Each patient is different, and the procedures included will depend on your specific concerns and goals.

For some women, results last for years or decades, while others may require minor revisions after several years. Your body will continue to age naturally over time, and long-lasting results depend on many factors, including age, genetics, skin quality, and overall health.

Yes, you may be able to have children after having a Mommy Makeover procedure. However, it is not recommended. Since most Mommy Makeover procedures include a tummy tuck, your abdomen will not be able to expand as usual during pregnancy, and the stitches may tear. The best option is to wait until after you are done having children to have a Mommy Makeover.
