I’m Thinking About a Mommy Makeover, but I Have Questions

Do you love your body? We always want the answer to this question to be “yes” but, for many women who have had children, a little help might be needed. Pregnancy has a lasting impact on the body, and many women wish they could get their pre-pregnancy bodies back. If you want to restore your pre-baby figure, ask us about the Mommy Makeover.

Many women secretly long for a Mommy Makeover, but may have a few questions or worries that keep them from exploring the possibility more in-depth. Find answers to some common questions below. If you still seek more information, schedule your Mommy Makeover consultation with triple board certified Dr. Sajjadian for personalized advice.

Are Mommy Makeovers One-Size-Fits-All? Can I Customize My Treatment?

Pregnancy changes bodies, but not always in the same ways. Breasts can get larger, smaller, or start to sag. Fat may develop in unwanted pockets in areas like the abdomen, flanks, back, etc. Some women experience stretched out abdominal skin and/or muscles. Your Mommy Makeover will target your problem areas. During your consultation, Dr. Sajjadian will discuss your goals and recommend the best treatments for your goals. Your procedure can be completely customized to your needs. Breast surgeriesliposuction, and tummy tucks are commonly included in a Mommy Makeover.

Can I Have More than One Surgery at a Time? Will I Need Multiple Surgeries?

A Mommy Makeover is a total body transformation, often combining multiple surgical procedures. The benefit of a Mommy Makeover is the ability to combine multiple treatments into one day of surgery. This allows you to recover from multiple treatments at the same time, reducing your downtime. Many treatments can be performed together, and Dr. Sajjadian can often combine all your surgeries into a single day of treatment. We’ll discuss your options during your consultation.

Dr. Sajjadian is a triple board certified plastic surgeon and one of the area’s best breast surgeons. His extensive background in cosmetic surgery makes him uniquely qualified to handle your Mommy Makeover.

I’m a Busy Mom. How Much Downtime Will I Have After Surgery?

A Mommy Makeover is highly customized, which means that recovery times can vary extensively. Those with young children may need some help for a week or two while they recover. Most women take some time off work (often 1-2 weeks). We’ll discuss your recovery period during your consultation so you can schedule time off work and arrange care for your children as needed. More invasive treatments generally require longer periods of downtime.

I Still Want More Children. Do I Need to Wait for My Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover can provide a dramatic transformation, but it is best performed once you’ve finished having children. Future pregnancies can reverse your results, potentially requiring revision surgeries down the road. By waiting until you’re finished having children, you can reverse the signs of pregnancy and enjoy your Mommy Makeover results for years to come.
