I Hate My Post-Pregnancy Belly. What Can I Do?

Having a baby changes the body, especially the belly. If you’re unhappy with your post-pregnancy pooch, come see Dr. Sajjadian. He is an award-winning plastic surgeon and the best plastic surgeon in Orange County. With your mommy makeover surgery we’ll transform your tummy, reshape your body, and enhance your breasts for your best body ever, even before baby.

What Changes Does Pregnancy Cause in the Abdominal Area?

The rapid expansion of the abdomen during pregnancy causes many changes. In some women these changes reverse and resolve shortly after pregnancy, but for most women lasting change to the abdomen occurs after pregnancy. Do you have any of these common, post-pregnancy abdominal changes?

  • Stretch marks
  • Excess skin
  • Abdominal fat
  • Separated abdominal muscles

If you’ve experienced any of these changes, a mommy makeover with a tummy tuck may be able to help. A tummy tuck was designed to restore a flatter, tighter appearance of the abdomen and is especially helpful after pregnancy or weight loss.

What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck provides a complete transformation to the abdominal area. A long incision is made across the lower abdomen. Excess skin and fat are removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened. Dr. Sajjadian will re-drape the abdominal skin and reposition the belly button as needed. After surgery you’ll be wrapped in bandaging and sent home to recover. A tummy tuck is often paired with abdominal liposuction.

What Other Procedures Will Dr. Sajjadian Include in My Mommy Makeover?

A tummy tuck is just one part of the mommy makeover. Dr. Sajjadian may also recommend breast augmentationbreast lift surgery, and liposuction. When combined these procedures can restore the body to a more youthful, pre-baby appearance. We’ll work with you to customize your mommy makeover to target your biggest areas of concern.
