For women in Sherman Oaks who want to regain their pre-pregnancy body, a mommy makeover may be just what the doctor ordered. By combining several procedures into one surgical event, Dr. Sanders is able to help women achieve their aesthetic goals so that they look and feel much like they did before pregnancy.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

The mommy makeover procedure comes with many benefits for Sherman Oaks area women. The procedures included usually focus on the breasts and tummy areas, which are most affected by pregnancy. However, be sure to talk to Dr. Sanders about the look you want to achieve to find out if he can include procedures on other areas of your body during your mommy makeover.

The most common procedures performed during a mommy makeover include:

Some of the benefits women enjoy from a mommy makeover include:

  • The ability to personalize your treatment.

Because every woman is different and has different goals in mind, Dr. Sanders tailors every mommy makeover to fit each patient’s unique needs and goals.

  • Improved quality of life.

When you are able to regain a body you are proud of, your overall well-being is improved. You’ll feel more confident dressing the way you want, hitting the beach in a bikini, and, most importantly, you will feel more comfortable during intimate moments with your partner. 

  • The results you want, faster.

Because a mommy makeover combines multiple plastic surgery procedures into one event, Sherman Oaks women are able to get their overall desired results faster. And because you’ll only have one surgery, you’ll only have to recover once, so you’ll spend less time healing. 

No matter the combination of procedures you want or need, Dr. Sanders will work with you to develop a treatment plan that helps you achieve your desired results.

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

Because Dr. Sanders is concerned about your overall well-being, he performs a mommy makeover candidacy screening during every consultation. To qualify for a mommy makeover, patients must:

  • Be physically and mentally healthy enough for elective surgery
  • Pass a pre-operative exam with your primary care physician
  • Have realistic expectations for your final results
  • Have areas of your body affected by pregnancy
  • Be a non-tobacco user or promise to quit using tobacco products for the time required by Dr. Sanders

Cost of a Mommy Makeover

As with most plastic surgery procedures, the cost of a mommy makeover will vary from patient to patient. Factors that affect cost include the number of procedures you have performed and the degree of change required to achieve your desired results. Your treatment plan will be one developed by you and Dr. Sanders, so you will know what to expect—both in treatment and cost.

The only way to truly know how much your mommy makeover will cost is to come into Dr. Sanders’ Sherman Oaks area office for an initial consultation. During your appointment, the two of you will talk about the specific areas you want to address, discuss your treatment options, and develop a plan to achieve your goals. 

Recovery from a Mommy Makeover

The recovery process from a mommy makeover will depend on the number and type of procedures you choose. Most Sherman Oaks women can expect to look great within a few weeks following their mommy makeover, but their final results may take up to a year to see.

To ensure your safety and quick recovery, Dr. Sanders will include drains where necessary and provide you with long-lasting anesthesia to reduce the discomfort you feel upon waking up. Following surgery, he will recommend you use a regimen of silicone scar gel and other skincare treatments to reduce the appearance of your scars. The combination of these products will help your scars fade significantly over the course of a year.
