What is a Mommy Makeover?
While childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment for many women, it often will alter the tightness and shape of certain body parts. However, it's possible to attain a tighter, slimmer figure with the help of the mommy makeover surgical procedure performed at Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery. This surgery uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to target the breasts, stomach, buttocks, and thighs — essentially any area affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andre P. Marshall frequently consults with Beverly Hills, CA women who wish to have their pre-pregnancy figure back. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Marshall to see whether a mommy makeover would be a good fit for your goals.

- Satisfaction with overall shape and appearance of your body, potentially for the first time since before pregnancy
- Minimization of some pregnancy-related imperfections, like stretch marks and hanging skin

"I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Marshall, he literally changed my life!!! I did a lot of research before deciding to have him perform my tummy tuck, and am SO glad I went with him as my doctor! I needed someone who made me feel comfortable (his bedside manner is the best) and confident that the procedure would be worth it, and he did exactly that - my results are waaaaaay better than I could have expected! I have my confidence back after not recognizing myself in the mirror post-pregnancy, and finally feel like myself again! THANK YOU!!!"- K.R. / Google / Dec 04, 2021

Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
In general, the best candidates for a mommy makeover are in good health and have realistic expectations for their results. Women should also be at or near their ideal body weight and be committed to maintaining a stable weight going forward. Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery recommends that women wait until they are finished having children before undergoing a mommy makeover so their outcomes will not be affected by any future pregnancies. Our team will perform an exam and review your medical history to ensure your candidacy.
Mommy Makeover Surgical Technique
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique combination of surgeries that will be custom-tailored to address your areas of concern. The most popular treatments in a mommy makeover are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the number of treatments. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital may be required. Once leaving the hospital, you will begin to recover at home with rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a gradual process. Walking will be hard the first week or so, and you should carefully follow the at-home treatment protocol to ensure proper healing of the incisions and sutures. Even though the full recovery could take about six months, most patients are able to get back to a normal routine within a couple of weeks.
What can I expect after the procedure?
Once leaving the hospital after your mommy makeover, you will begin to recover at home with rest and proper aftercare. This phase is generally a gradual process. Walking will be hard the first week or so, and a carefully followed, at-home care protocol will be needed to make sure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most patients find the healing phase can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should wait for around two months. In the end, this surgery at Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery can be life changing for women, helping them reclaim their figure once again.
