Mommy Makeover Specialist

Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgeons located in Santa Barbara, CA & Solvang, CA

“Mommy makeover” is an umbrella term for a group of aesthetic and reconstructive surgical procedures patients get at one time. Mommy makeovers target the areas of the body changed by pregnancy and childbirth: the tummy, breasts, and buttocks. At the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Santa Barbara, California, Dr. Julio Soares and his son Dr. Marc Soares offer mommy makeovers that are noticeable yet natural. This father-son team is proud to help their patients feel vibrant and beautiful at every stage of their lives.

Mommy Makeover Q & A

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Every mother deserves to feel beautiful. Mommy makeovers address the areas of your body that change after pregnancy and childbirth. This type of makeover restores your post-baby body, helping you look and feel your very best.

Genetics play a big part in how you bounce back after having children. For many women, no amount of exercise and healthy eating can restore a flat stomach or lift sagging breasts. Surgical reconstruction is a viable option to undo the changes caused by pregnancy, weight gain, and childbirth.

Mommy makeovers are customized for the patient and may include:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Buttock lift
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation
  • Liposuction
  • Facial fillers and lifts

What Should I Expect During Recovery From A Mommy Makeover?

One of the benefits of mommy makeovers is they require a single recovery period.  Women who stagger multiple procedures over weeks or months also endure multiples recoveries (an option that’s not practical for most busy moms).

Recovery from any major surgery can be painful, too. The team at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery does everything possible to ensure your recovery is as comfortable as possible.  

Recovery from multiple plastic surgery procedures takes time.  Mommy makeover patients need around-the-clock assistance for several days after surgery.  Moms shouldn’t lift or carry their children for at least a week, though specific recovery times and guidelines vary among patients.  Patients who follow post-surgery instructions provided by Dr. Marc Soares achieve the best results.  

Am I A Good Candidate For A Mommy Makeover?

Patients who eat right, exercise, and make their health a priority have the best mommy makeover results. Plastic surgery is never a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Healthy habits should be a priority before, during, and after pregnancy.

Because pregnancy can undo surgical results, Dr. Soares advises his patients to consider scheduling their mommy makeovers once they’re done having children.   

Dr. Soares doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to the mommy makeover but works with each patient to help them achieve their hopes and goals for plastic surgery.
