what is a Mommy Makeover?
Mesbahi Plastic Surgery in McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., and Beverly Hills, CA is pleased to offer mommy makeover to his patients. Skilled plastic surgeon Dr. Alex Mesbahi frequently consults with women who want their pre-pregnancy silhouette back. Even though childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment in a woman’s life, it inevitably will change the tightness and shape of various body parts — and can leave one feeling a little frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's possible to get a tighter, slimmer figure with the help of a mommy makeover. This is a procedure that uses a combination of liposuction and skin removal surgeries to target the stomach, breasts, labia, and any other areas that have been affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. In addition, nonsurgical treatments can be incorporated to address surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation from the severe stretching of the skin during pregnancy.
"Dr. Alex Mesbahi, I just wanted to thank you so much for what you did for me and so grateful for your services. Doctors like you make surgery a wonderful experience. You don't know how much this means to me. You're awesome."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Feb 24, 2020
"Dr. Mesbahi and Staff Are Amazing!! - Dr. Mesbahi and his entire staff are amazing. Dr. Mesbahi did not cut any corners. He made my well being and my health his first priority. My post op results are amazing!! I was a little worried about scaring because I suffer from hyperpigmentation. Only weeks after surgery I can honestly say I can barely see the incisions. I was also afraid of pain from the surgery, but there was minimal. I’m not sure how Dr. Mesbahi did it but he did. I felt like I could get right back at it the next day. He and his staff are down to earth, kind, caring, and on top of their game. From the time I went in for my consult to post surgery I have been in good hands. You will not be disappointed!!"- K. / RealSelf / Jun 02, 2020

who is a Candidate for a mommy makeover?
The right candidates for a mommy makeover are women who have completed childbearing and nursing, and have worked to achieve a slimmer, tighter figure through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgery is needed to restore their pre-pregnancy shape. If you have completed childbearing and are displeased with the side effects remaining on your body, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or pockets of fat in the lower back, a mommy makeover procedure could help you. The overall goal of Dr. Mesbahi is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure so you can feel beautiful and confident.

A mommy makeover is a body contouring surgery that is tailored by Dr. Mesbahi to meet your specific needs and goals. A mommy makeover most commonly incorporates a breast lift, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, and liposuction. Since this procedure uses multiple lift surgeries to contour the body, it can take about 3 – 7 hours to complete. In some cases, an overnight stay in a hospital is required. Patients can also choose from a variety of nonsurgical therapies to include in their custom treatment plan. We offer nonsurgical skin tightening, laser skin resurfacing, and laser vein removal.
after your procedure
After a recovery period in the hospital, you will be released to go home. Recovering from this surgery is generally a slow process. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first few days, and a thorough, at-home care protocol will be provided to help the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most patients find the healing process can take around six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to get back to a somewhat normal routine within a couple of weeks. Exercise should be held off for about two months. In the end, this procedure at Mesbahi Plastic Surgery can be life-changing for women, creating a newfound love for their body.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Mesbahi, he will take his time to understand your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can make suggestions on what to include in your treatment plan. Most women want a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) together with liposuction and a tummy tuck.
Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers women a beautiful new shape, it does leave behind surgical scars. Dr. Mesbahi will make every effort possible to create clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be concealed with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical instructions, Dr. Mesbahi or a member of our team will go over scar care so your stitches heal properly.
How long after childbirth should I wait to have a mommy makeover?
For the best results, you should wait for at least three months after delivering your baby to schedule your mommy makeover. If you are breastfeeding, once you have finished, you should wait for 2 – 3 months to allow your breasts to settle.
What if I get pregnant again?
It's best to hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so the surgical results are not compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk of changing if you get pregnant again. If you get pregnant after a mommy makeover, a second surgery may be performed to refresh your results.
