What is a Mommy Makeover?
California plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Salcedo often meets with women who desire to get their pre-pregnancy silhouette back. Even though childbirth is an incredible time for new moms, it inevitably will alter the tightness and shape of certain body parts and could leave one feeling frustrated. There is great news, though — it's possible to get a youthful, slimmer, tighter figure with the help of the mommy makeover surgery performed at The Plastics Doc. This surgery uses a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body — virtually any area impacted by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be repaired. Furthermore, nonsurgical procedures can be used to correct surface imperfections, such as stretch marks.

"I always felt insecure about my lips but never trusted any med spas enough to pursue getting fillers. I got referred here by a friend and it was the best experience I could have asked for.

Doctor Salcedo is truly an artist and took his time making sure I got exactly what I wanted and was educated on all my options. Client for life achieved!!!"- S.M. / Google / May 03, 2023
"Dr Salcedo & staff are all so awesome. Having my 18 year old breast implants removed & not replacing them was a scary decision at the time. I came in not knowing what to expect and not knowing how my body would look after. Having Dr Salcedo explain to me in detail of having the surgery & what to expect afterwards made me feel 100% confident & comfortable that I was making the right decision not only for myself but also choosing Dr Salcedo as my doctor. I’m at 3 weeks post-op and already loving the results. I’m looking forward to seeing my natural breast as the healing process continues. Thank You Dr Salcedo & Staff ❤️"- M.R. / Google / Apr 28, 2023

Can I Get A Mommy Makeover?
You may be ideal for a mommy makeover if you have experienced pregnancy or childbirth and have worked to attain a toned, slimmer appearance through a clean diet with little result. For so many new moms, getting their pre-pregnancy figure back is near impossible. That is where a mommy makeover can help. If you are past childbearing but dissatisfied with the effects left behind, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or undesirable areas of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, a mommy makeover could help give you the look you once had. Dr. Salcedo's goal is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy figure so you can resume life without additional concern about your body.
How Does the Mommy Makeover Work?
A mommy makeover is a body contouring treatment performed at our Corona, CA office specifically tailored for you by plastic surgeon Dr. Salcedo based on your areas of concern and your desired outcome. The most popular treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction — and many can be considered together. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia and last somewhere between 3 – 7 hours based on your treatment plan. Also, an overnight stay at the hospital may be needed, which Dr. Salcedo and his team will help you arrange. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical methods, such as an injection or a laser treatment to soften facial lines and diminish surface issues like stretch marks.
What Should Be Expected After a Mommy Makeover?
You will spend a brief period recovering under Dr. Salcedo and his team's observation then you will be sent home to begin your recovery with rest and proper aftercare. Recovery is generally a slow process. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult for the first week or so. It's important to carefully follow the home healing protocol given to you by Dr. Salcedo in order to make sure you heal properly. The majority of women find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, you should be able to get back to a normal routine within several weeks. You should hold off on exercising for around two months while you continue to heal. In the end, this surgery at The Plastics Doc can make an incredible impact for women, allowing them to love the way they look and feel once again.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover will vary depending on what you are including in your surgical plan. In your consultation, Dr. Salcedo will need to develop your treatment plan before estimating your costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in rejuvenating your body after having children, so it is important to concentrate on getting the results you want instead of the cheapest surgeon. Our practice accepts several payment options, and we can help you find low-interest financing — so your mommy makeover is affordable.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation, Dr. Salcedo will listen to your concerns and goals before examining your body. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your treatment plan. It is common to include breast surgery, such as augmentation or lift, along with tummy tuck and liposuction.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed — so your results aren't compromised. In most cases, getting pregnant again could stretch or damage the treated areas of your body. In the event that you have a subsequent pregnancy after your mommy makeover, another surgery may be performed to refresh your results.
What about nonsurgical treatment options?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to get significant improvements. In your consultation, Dr. Salcedo will explain both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. Based on your concerns and goals, he will let you know if procedures like nonsurgical fat reduction (for example, CoolSculpting®), vaginal rejuvenation (like ThermiVa), or noninvasive skin tightening (for example, Thermage or ultherapy) may be considered.
Will I have scars after my mommy makeover?
Although a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new shape, it does leave some scarring. Dr. Salcedo will create clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Salcedo or a member of his team will go over scar care so your stitches heal properly.
