Mommy Makeover

Motherhood is a beautiful experience, but the reality is that it can also be a significant strain on the body. As a female-led practice, we believe that mothers especially deserve to love every part of themselves, and we aim to make that a reality through personalized options for a mommy makeover in Beverly Hills.
This fully adaptive procedure approach allows each patient to focus on their unique concerns and restore their bodies to an aesthetic that they love.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures designed to restore the body’s youthful appearance according to each patient’s unique needs and situation. It typically targets areas that have become stretched, sagging or loose, or otherwise changed due to pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. The goal is to give mothers a sense of reclaiming the beauty of their bodies and enhancing confidence and self-love for who they are and how they look.

Top Mommy Makeover Procedures

The most popular mommy makeover procedures are tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction and fat transfer.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal area while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles for a firmer appearance.

Breast Procedures

Breast procedures can vary depending on every woman’s unique anatomy and needs. The goal through a variety of breast procedures is to restore balance in size of breasts so that they look more proportionate, while a breast lift can address concerns about breast position and shape.


Liposuction can be used to remove stubborn pockets of fat from the body that can include the entire torso or spot treatment of certain areas.

Fat transfer to buttocks or hips (Skinny BBL)

What is traditionally known as a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a distinct look for some. For many, women do not want too large of a buttock but want their feminine curvature to be natural but more defined. For these patients, a skinny BBL would achieve the goal with gentle, safe amounts of fat placed in volume-deficient areas, such as the hip divots or buttocks. The skinny BBL is becoming an increasingly popular part of the mommy makeover suite of procedures.


A mommy makeover is a great way to restore your pre-pregnancy figure and boost your self-confidence. When the procedure is performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, patients can expect to see results that may include:
  • More defined figure
  • Improved shape and silhouette
  • Tightened skin
  • Reduced sagging or looseness in skin and tissues
  • Increased firmness of the treated areas
  • Improved balance between breasts and buttock area 
  • Boosted confidence in your appearance
In addition to physical benefits, mommy makeover patients also often experience an overall emotional boost. Knowing that you look good can be a great confidence booster and can influence how you interact with others and your overall quality of life.

Who Is a Candidate?

The ideal candidate for a mommy makeover is someone in good general health who has completed their family (as having additional children can impact the longevity of your results). It is important to remember that each patient is unique and the best way to determine which procedures are right for you is to consult with Dr. Min. Additionally, the best candidates will have completed breastfeeding, be in at a stable weight, and be non-smoking, as each of these factors can impact the quality of your results and the recovery period.

An Overview

A mommy makeover procedure usually includes several surgeries that are performed during the same operation on a single day. Your surgeon will explain the specifics of your treatment plan and discuss the risks and benefits with you, outlining the specifics of your individual procedure plan. During the procedure, general anesthesia will be used to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout, and the duration is typically about 4-6 hours, depending on the number of procedures chosen. Afterward, patients can return home the same day with someone to drive them. Many moms also choose the option of staying at an aftercare with one-on-one nursing to have a comfortable, restful night after surgery.

After the Surgery: Recovery

After your surgery, you may experience some temporary swelling, bruising, and discomfort following the procedure. These effects should subside within a few weeks. Additionally, you will need to take some time off from work or other strenuous activities to give your body time to heal, typically about two full weeks. Your surgeon will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions, including information about when it is safe to resume your normal daily activities. We also see patients for follow-up visits to track their recovery and ensure their results are turning out optimally.

Seeing Your Results

Although any swelling or bruising should start to resolve shortly after your surgery, it may take several months for the full effects of your mommy makeover procedure to be realized. As you heal, you will begin to see the changes in your body as it regains its pre-pregnancy appearance, and even with some additional enhancements that may be more stunning than before.
For most patients, the results are long-lasting and can help them feel confident again. With the right surgeon, a mommy makeover procedure can be a great way to restore your body’s natural beauty and renew your confidence, giving your motherhood period a powerful boost.

Combining a Mommy Makeover With Other Procedures

While a mommy makeover is already a combination of procedures, patients may see benefits from following it up with other touch-up treatments in the future. Some popular non-surgical ways to preserve your results include skin rejuvenation treatment, dermal fillers, facial fat transfer, and FaceTite, among many others. Once you see your full mommy makeover results, you can consult again with Dr. Min to create a plan to ensure your aesthetic remains at its peak for years to come.
