What Is the Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgeries designed to address some of the most common issues caused by pregnancy, childbirth, and the breastfeeding process. After childbirth, many women notice undesirable changes to their bodies including stretch marks and pockets of excess fat that simply won’t respond to diet and exercise. 

It is also common to be left with loose skin, sagging breasts, and weakened abdominal muscles after the birthing process. For this reason, most mommy makeover procedures include some form of breast surgery and a tummy tuck, with liposuction and vaginal rejuvenation also being popular. You’ll enjoy comprehensive results from a customized treatment plan.

Your Rest and Recovery

The recovery period you experience after a mommy makeover in Orange County depends on how many procedures were performed as part of your surgical plan. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend patients take at least two weeks of downtime. Here are some more specific details as they’ll pertain to your projected recovery period. Rest assured that you’ll be given detailed aftercare instructions and a thorough timeline of what you can expect from your recovery period once your surgeon has finalized the details of your treatment plan.

Two Week Mark

  • Light daily activity
  • No light or heavy exercise
  • No heavy lifting
  • Swelling and bruising will start to subside

Three Week Mark

  • No exercise, either light or heavy
  • No heavy lifting
  • Swelling and bruising will continue to subside

Six Week Mark

  • Light exercise is ok
  • Walking is encouraged
  • No intense exercise
  • No heavy lifting

Swelling and bruising will continue to subside little by little over time, with your final results beginning to become apparent by the six-month mark. Any post-surgical scarring will continue to fade for six to 12 months after surgery.

I wanted to feel like the woman I was before kids; I missed my body and confidence, and Dr. Van Maur gave me both back! My first procedure was breast implants, this time I had a tummy tuck, and I couldn't be any happier. I'm super grateful that I found CosmetiCare because they have completely changed my life!

How much is a Mommy Makeover in Orange County?

The mommy makeover is a highly customizable procedure, making each one different in terms of cost. You’ll get a clear cost estimate when you visit us for your consultation and speak with your surgeon about the specifics of your cosmetic goals. We offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

What's the biggest preparation I should make before a Mommy Makeover?

Given that you’ll need to avoid heavy lifting and too much activity for the first week post-surgery, it’s important to have childcare and pet care lined up, especially if your kids are still young.

Will insurance cover my Mommy Makeover procedure?

Mommy Makeover surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, so insurance typically doesn’t cover it. However, you may receive partial coverage if hernia repair is required. Talk with your insurance company about what kind of documentation you’d need to provide to show that the procedure is addressing medically necessary issues.

If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

How long do Mommy Makeover results last?

Your mommy makeover results should last ten or more years, provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight. If your mommy makeover includes breast augmentation with breast implants, you’ll need to consider breast implant exchange at the 10 to 15 year mark to maintain breast health.

Should I lose weight before a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover surgery at CosmetiCare in Orange County is not meant to be a “weight-loss” procedure but rather to help repair and restore your pre-baby body. We recommend patients be at or within 10 to 15 lbs. of their goal weight before Mommy Makeover surgery for optimal, long-lasting results.

Are there alternatives to Mommy Makeover surgery?

You will not find more dramatic results with any other procedures as seen with a mommy makeover at CosmetiCare in Orange County.

When it comes to the breasts, sagging, heavy breasts cannot be rejuvenated without plastic surgery. No amount of exercise can tighten flabby skin, address stretch marks, or repair torn or split abdominal muscles.

The non-surgical body-contouring option, CoolSculpting [hyperlink], can address fat elimination but will not eliminate excess skin, making Mommy Makeover the superior choice for getting the dramatic results many of the moms we see desire.

What else do I Need to Know?

The combination of breast surgery and abdominal work provides outstanding results for our patients. Our patients at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach can testify that a mommy makeover really can change your life. It’s important to be honest about your goals during your consultation and allow yourself the downtime needed to heal. A good exercise program, good eating habits, and an improved lifestyle can help to ensure the best long-lasting results after a Mommy Makeover.
