Although motherhood is a rewarding experience, pregnancy, childbirth and nursing can leave many women with unwanted stretching, sagging and extra pounds on their bodies. Because of these changes, mothers may feel undesirable, frustrated and desire a return of their pre-baby, more youthful figures.
If you are in this stage of your life, want more energy and confidence, and would like to reverse the unwanted effects of pregnancy and aging on your body, you may want to consider a "Mommy Makeover". With this highly personalized procedure, Dr. Daniel Golshani M.D., F.A.C.S 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 fatty deposits of the hips and thighs.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills entails a combination of surgical procedures in one operation that is uniquely designed to reverse the impact of pregnancy, childbearing and age on a mother's body, especially after multiple pregnancies. Based on your specific needs and desires, this special makeover usually focuses on two areas of the body that are almost always affected, the breasts and abdomen. By restoring the body's shape and appearance, deflated or sagging breasts and loose or stretched skin can be transformed into a rejuvenated figure resulting in a flatter stomach, uplifted and fuller breasts and improved self-image and confidence.
“Mommy makeover re-instilled the confidence in me that I was lacking all this time.”
- Have you struggled with self-confidence since your pregnancy?
- Do you have loose skin around the tummy?
- Have your breasts become smaller and/or deflated (also due to breastfeeding)?
- Do most of your clothes not fit right due to the excess skin and fat lumps?
- Are you embarrassed to dress the way you really want to?
- Do you feel like your body does not look like your body anymore?
- Has exercise and diet not given you the results you seek post-pregnancy?
If you have answered “yes” to a majority of these questions, then it’s time to seriously consider a life-changing procedure known as a Mommy Makeover.
Pregnancy is a wonderful aspect of life. It’s a time that is very special both to the mother, her family, and the father of her child. Unfortunately, a result of many pregnancies leaves women with struggling weight gain, extra skin, stretch marks, and sagging. These aspects often leave women disappointed with their bodies, negatively affecting their self-esteem and self-image.
Mommy Makeover is a term used to describe a variety of procedures designed to reverse the effects of pregnancy on the body. Every mother will have different needs, but typically a Mommy Makeover consists of a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, liposuction to contour the body, and breast augmentation or breast lift to add volume or counteract any sagging that might have occurred. Other procedures may include facial procedures or even butt augmentation.

What Procedure Options are Available for a Mommy Makeover?
Because pregnancy, genetics and age affect each mother's body differently, a Mommy Makeover is personalized and 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 (Mastopexy)
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Reduction
- Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck
Who is a Good Candidate?
Generally speaking, the best candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a woman who wants more energy, strength and self-confidence, and is looking to improve her overall appearance. In addition, the surgical candidate 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.
Where do I begin?
A consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani is the first step to learn how a personalized Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills can improve your post-pregnancy body. Consultations typically include a discussion of your goals, an evaluation of your current signs of aging, the non-surgical and surgical options available to you including a comprehensive, physician-supervised weight management, nutrient supplementations and a wide array of available expert consultants to address the patient as a whole. Dr. Golshani will also discuss in detail with the patient, the likely outcomes, potential risks and complications associated with Mommy Makeovers, and the recommended course of treatment.
Case Studies - The Transformation Power of Mommy Makeover
Words can only do so much when it comes to life-changing results. However, I’d like to show you a couple of cases of my own 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 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, which is all discussed in a personal consultation with Dr. Golshani.
Can I still have children after a Mommy Makeover?
You may, but then you may reverse the positive results of your Mommy Makeover and therefore it is advised to wait until you know for sure that you are done with having any more 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.
