What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is generally accepted as a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to restore a woman’s body to a pre-pregnancy appearance. A mommy makeover can include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, or liposuction. Depending on the amount of correction necessary, a mommy makeover may include any or all these procedures.
Due to advancements in techniques and technology, a mommy makeover Newport Beach can be done safely in one surgical procedure. By doing the procedures concurrently, a mommy makeover Newport Beach can reduce the amount of recovery time necessary to correct multiple areas of the body. It is important to note a mommy makeover Newport Beach is a highly-customized procedure, as not all women react to pregnancy the same way. Some women may see a large loss in volume in their breasts and choose to increase the post-pregnancy volume with breast implants. Other women may see a loss in elasticity causing breasts to sag, when a breast lift may restore breasts to a more youthful position on the chest.
More and more women are looking to restore their bodies to a more youthful pre-pregnancy state after child-birth. Mommy makeover Newport Beach offers a customized plan using multiple procedures to achieve the desired outcome.

How Long is a Mommy Makeover Recovery?
Mommy makeover patients in Newport Beach should expect an initial recovery period of 3 weeks. During this time you will be given medication to manage any pain and discomfort. A pain pump will be placed during surgery to get you through the initial days where tenderness can be the most intense. This will allow you to “turn the corner” and start feeling better before the pump is removed. Bruising and swelling is expected, but should improve gradually.
If your mommy makeover included a tummy tuck, you will be on bed rest for a few days as the incision on your belly needs to be handled delicately. Essentially it’s requested that you do not ‘stretch’ your belly after surgery for a few days.
You should get plenty of rest and sleep, as these aid the healing process. No strenuous activities or lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk. You should arrange child care or get some help during your recovery. Walking around the house and mild stretching is recommended after a few days.
You will see aesthetic improvement in some areas soon after, but others will require more time for the swelling and the incisions to heal. This may take several weeks to become fully realized.
Dr. Sajjadian understands unsightly scarring can ruin the aesthetics of an otherwise successful procedure. He will go to great lengths to minimize obvious scarring. Patients will reap the benefit of his technical skill as he personally closes your incisions. Dr. Sajjadian closures are compulsive, starting with the breast tissue, and therefore multiple layers are closed prior to the skin, absorbing the tension, and reducing the scarring risk.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
Many of our Mommy Makeover patients are active and health-conscious. They want to hit the gym and stay fit while enjoying their new figure, but patience is required.
After you combine breast enhancement and tummy tuck, you’ll need at least two weeks off work and generally three weeks of no aerobic exercise at all. That’s because increasing blood pressure while healing can prolong swelling or lead to bleeding.
Low-intensity workouts can usually begin by four weeks, and heavy lifting or high-intensity workouts will be permitted after roughly six weeks. Depending on your custom makeover components, Dr. Sajjadian will give you specific guidelines to follow for optimal results.
As you might expect, adding more procedures to your makeover can mean taking a little more time to recover. Though a 2-week minimum is standard for time off work, your plastic surgeon will provide you with personalized recommendations.
Depending on your job’s physical requirements, you may request a modified workload or remote work for an extended time after the first two weeks.
A Newport Beach Mommy Makeover is highly customizable, which is why it’s such a popular procedure with women of all ages and backgrounds.
The most crucial first step to plan a combination of enhancements is meeting with Dr. Sajjadian for your complimentary consultation. Each patient is unique, and we take the time to listen to their needs, concerns, and body improvement dreams.
