Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing leave many women with unwanted changes to their bodies. These side effects of pregnancy can include stretching of the abdominal skin that does not return to your pre-pregnancy firmness, droopy or sagging breasts and stubborn pockets of fat on the body. Though motherhood can be a very rewarding experience, these negative changes may make mothers feel undesirable, frustrated and self-conscious. If you are in this stage of your life and desire a return of energy, confidence and a more youthful figure, a “Mommy Makeover” may be perfect for you. This highly personalized transformation can reverse pregnancy’s unwanted effects and aging on your body by enhancing your post-pregnancy body and restoring its shape and appearance.
A mommy makeover allows mothers to increase their energy and confidence. Women often share that their mommy makeover inspired them to do more with their children, find fitness routines they feel good about, and feel more like their younger selves. With this highly personalized set of procedures, Dr. Daniel Golshani will work with you to enhance your post-pregnancy body including improvement in breast size and shape, removal of excess skin and stretch marks of the abdomen, and diminishing fatty deposits of the hips and thighs.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover combines several reconstructive procedures into one uniquely designed surgery. By reversing the impact of pregnancy, childbearing, and age on a mother’s body, especially after multiple pregnancies, this special makeover is based on your specific needs and desires. These surgeries after pregnancy can improve breast size and shape while removing fatty deposits on the hips and thighs as well as loose, excess tummy skin and stretch marks. The result is a rejuvenated figure with a flatter stomach, uplifted and fuller breasts, and increased confidence.
“Mommy makeover re-instilled the confidence in me that I was lacking all this time.”
Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Because a Mommy Makeover is so customized, candidates vary. Generally speaking, the best candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a woman who wants her pre-pregnancy body back, more self-confidence, and is looking to improve her overall appearance. In addition, you should be in good physical health and should not smoke. Women should wait at least six months after completing their last pregnancy and breastfeeding before considering any surgical procedure.
Here are some factors that most of Dr. Golshani’s Los Angeles Mommy Makeover patients have had trouble with:
- Loose skin in the tummy area
- Breasts that look smaller or ‘deflated’ after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
- Lost weight after pregnancy but have stubborn deposits of fat remaining
- Are not able to fit into clothes they want because of excess skin or fat
- Feel like their body does not look like ‘theirs’ anymore
- Have tried diet and exercise, but are stuck in their progress towards their goals.

*Please keep in mind Tummy Tuck is just one procedure offered in a Mommy Makeover.
Procedures that can be part of a Mommy Makeover
Because pregnancy, genetics and age affect each mother's body differently, a Mommy Makeover includes various plastic surgery procedures based on your unique body and specific desires. The makeover may include a combination of breast and body procedures including:
- Breast Lift
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
Case Studies - The Transformation Power of Mommy MakeoverWords can only do so much when it comes to life-changing results, so we’d like to show you a couple of cases of Dr. Golshani’s patients who cannot be happier with their results.
This patient came to me after trying to get back into shape following her pregnancy. She told me she just couldn’t fix her body no matter what she ate or what exercises she performed both at home and occasionally at the gym. She decided to come in for a consultation to see what her options were. I recommended her a Mommy Makeover that consisted of a tummy tuck and liposuction to remove excess skin from her stomach area, as well as a breast lift to reverse the sagging in her breasts. She’s been a very happy mother ever since!
Patient was unsatisfied with the way she looked after having 2 children. She wanted the body she had before pregnancy. She wanted a toned, flatter belly and breasts that appeared fuller and with more volume. I performed a tummy tuck on her and augmented her breasts in a way to add more volume. I made her dreams become reality and she’s ecstatic every time she looks in the mirror.
Is a Mommy Makeover done all at the same time?
This answer depends on how many areas are addressed, but typically it can be performed in either one or two stages.
What procedures does a Mommy Makeover consist of?
Usually a Mommy Makeover includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation. Some women opt for other procedures such as thigh lift. It all depends on what you are trying to achieve. The procedures you want can be discussed in a personal consultation with Dr. Golshani.
Can I still have children after a Mommy Makeover?
Having a Mommy Makeover will in no way prevent you from getting pregnant in the future. However, a future pregnancy can significantly affect the results of a Mommy Makeover. To ensure your excellent results last a long time, it is best to have a mommy makeover once you are done having children.
Can I still have a Mommy Makeover even if I’ve had a C-Section?
Absolutely! The method of child delivery does not affect whether or not you are a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover.
