To learn more about mommy makeover surgery, please read the paragraphs below. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Sundine, please call our office or contact us today.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

It’s common for women to feel overjoyed about being a mother but less enthused about the toll pregnancy took on their body; this is nothing to feel ashamed of. There are ways to correct the areas of the body that are affected by pregnancy — through diet, exercise, surgical intervention, or a combination of the three. Since pregnancy affects more than one area of the body, plastic surgeon Dr. Michael J. Sundine offers a treatment that addresses all areas in what is essentially one surgery, called a mommy makeover.

The Mommy Makeover Procedure in Newport Beach

A mommy makeover treats the areas of the body that change the most during pregnancy. You can choose to combine breast surgery with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), as well as liposuction to eliminate fat deposits from the back, thighs, and buttocks.

  • Your breast surgery might involve the placement of breast implants, a breast lift, or even a reduction, depending on your unique aesthetic needs.
  • Tummy tuck is often included in a mommy makeover treatment plan because pregnancy can drastically affect the midsection, stretching out the muscles and skin and leaving you with a pregnancy “pooch.” Tummy tuck surgery tightens the abdominal wall, removes excess fat and skin, and tightens the remaining skin. Sometimes it can improve the appearance of stretch marks, too.
  • Liposuction can slim areas of the body that gained weight with pregnancy: the thighs, lower back, and buttocks. Buttock enhancement (i.e., Brazilian butt lift) can transform a behind from flat and saggy to curvy and perky.

Dr. Sundine can help you identify the areas of the body that you are unhappy with, and suggest the procedures to best target those areas. He performs mommy makeovers at an accredited surgical center where you will be safe and comfortable.

Who Is a Candidate for Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Suitable candidates for mommy makeover surgery should be in good health and have reasonable expectations of what surgery can and cannot accomplish. You should be done having children; it is recommended that a woman wait at least six months after giving birth before considering mommy makeover surgery. Also, you should finish breastfeeding and be at a stable weight before having the procedure.

Recovering from Mommy Makeover Surgery

The recovery from mommy makeover surgery depends on the procedures that were performed. If you have had breast surgery and a tummy tuck you will most likely need to wear special garments (an abdominal binder and a surgical bra) for several weeks following surgery. If you have included a butt lift into your mommy makeover, you will need to stay off of your buttocks while the area heals.

You will need to rest at home for several days before Dr. Sundine gives you the go-ahead to return to work and other normal activities. You should also refrain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting (including lifting children) until Dr. Sundine approves those activities. Dr. Sundine will provide more specific instructions and guidelines for mommy makeover recovery during pre-operative consultations.

    • My experience with Dr. Sundine was AWESOME! He did such an amazing job on my nose. My nose had basically collapsed and Dr. Sundine made it look normal again. He helped me restore my self confidence. I am so happy with the results. Dr. Sundine explained everything in detail prior to surgery along with my follow up visits. I highly recommend him. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind.

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
