What is a Mommy Makeover?
Brea and Beverly Hills, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin frequently meets with women who want to get their pre-pregnancy physique back. While childbirth can be an amazing and miraculous moment in a woman’s life, it almost always alters the size and shape of certain body parts, which can leave patients feeling a little frustrated. The great news is that it's possible to reclaim a slim and taut appearance thanks to the assistance of the mommy makeover procedure at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery. The mommy makeover uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening to reshape the breasts, stomach, buttock, and thighs — basically any body part affected by nursing, weight gain, weight loss, etc. can be addressed. In addition, nonsurgical procedures can be used to enhance surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin, that occur from the quick stretching and fluctuation of skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"So I am not a patient of Dr. Corbin but my wife is. She recently had a mommy makeover. Dr. Corbin is not warm and fuzzy, but what he is, is a good, knowledgable ps that did a fantastic job.

Best Candidates for Mommy Makeover
Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are females who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth, and have tried to get a tighter figure through a consistent healthy lifestyle with little result. For so many new moms, surgical intervention is necessary to get their pre-pregnancy body back. If you're past childbearing and are displeased with the imperfections left behind (such as deflated, sagging breasts; wrinkled skin in the abdominal area; or unwanted fat in the hips, thighs, and buttocks) this procedure could be a great option for you. Dr. Corbin and his team are committed to helping you regain your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to feeling your best.
Dr. Corbin will tailor your mommy makeover treatment to your specific needs and the area of your body being treated. Many procedures can be considered together — the most common treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia and last around 3 – 7 hours depending on the number of treatments. Also, an overnight stay at the hospital may be necessary. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical skin procedures, such as an injection or laser treatment, to smooth facial lines and diminish surface issues.
Additional Considerations for Mommy Makeover
After leaving the hospital, you can rest and recover at home. Walking will likely be challenging the first couple of weeks, and you should carefully follow our home healing protocol in order to ensure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most patients find that the healing phase takes about six months, but they're able to resume their normal routine within a couple of weeks. Exercise should be avoided for about two months. This surgery at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery can be an amazing journey for women, helping them reclaim their figure once again.
