Still Trending: The Mommy Makeover

It’s not a new phenomenon but mommy makeovers are still very popular in Newport Beach and across the nation. There seems to be no stopping women from undergoing the cluster of rejuvenating procedures, commonly called the “Mommy Makeover” since most of the procedures are aimed at restoring a woman’s body to her pre-pregnancy (or better) state. So many of Dr. Sajjadian’s Newport Beach clients come in saying “I just want my old breasts and body back!”

Because the term “Mommy Makeover” is more of a marketing term rather than a specific procedure, it’s difficult to calculate exact statistics. However, just the term “Mommy Makeover” itself, reveals our obsession with youth while also showing society’s wide acceptance of plastic surgery compared to a generation or two ago. The numerous television shows and magazines dedicated to makeovers and plastic surgery also make no attempt to hide our fascination with the field.

While most of the procedures done during a “Mommy Makeover” are not new, their popularity continues to grow.  Breast augmentations, a common procedure in most plastic surgery practices, increase every year. Breast lifts, another favorite among the mommy makeover crowd, has gone up during the past decade.  Tummy tucks and buttock lifts are on a huge astronomical growth spurt. Although not as popular (or at least left out of most conversations), cosmetic genitoplasty (a.k.a. vaginal rejuvenation) which involves modifying the labia minora or labia majora, has grown in acceptance and popularity as well.

Post-pregnancy mothers have always been a large portion of the plastic surgery clientele here in Newport Beach and worldwide. In the United States, breast augmentation was very popular during the 1970s and 1980s. It was often referred to as the “restoration of the breasts due to postpartum changes,” Because plastic surgery was somewhat taboo back then, it was done very, very quietly, and often times, insurance paid for it.  The from 1991 to 2003, there was a recoil effect because women were scared that implants were unsafe but when numerous studies proved implants safe again, a resurge occurred and hasn’t let up.
