Few things in life are as rewarding as becoming a mother and growing a family. However, having children can take a major toll on a woman’s body. You can take comfort in knowing that you can turn back the clock on those physical changes through cosmetic surgery. Many moms like you get mommy makeovers once they are done having children.

One part of a mommy makeover can start with rejuvenating your eyes. After years of sleepless nights raising children may accelerate aging around your eyes. Family and friends are probably asking you if you are getting enough sleep. One solution is using a Botox treatment to soften the "crow's feet" or the frown lines. The Botox treatment only takes a few minutes, but the results can last for months. Many mothers have said how Botox shaves years off their appearance. You can also have surgery on your eyelids if you have bags under their eyes or hooding of the upper eyelids. The scars are minimal and the results are substantial and permanent. After breastfeeding, many women complain of sagging breasts, asymmetry, enlarged areolas, loss of upper fullness and nipples pointing south.

The Laser Bra Breast Lift uses your extra breast skin to create an internal brassiere of your breast tissue. This technique has been known to dramatically increase fullness in the upper portion of the breast for a long-lasting lift. You can achieve the fullness of breast implants using only your breast tissue. Implants, or fat transfer, are required if you want a larger breast size. You can choose between saline and silicone implants with saline implants being the most popular choice. If you prefer silicone, there is a new generation of cohesive gel implants known as "gummy bear” implants being used in FDA trials. These "gummies" are more solid than liquid meaning less chance of leakage. Many patients have raved about the natural feel of silicone implants.

One of the biggest issues after childbearing is the "postpartum pouch," a combination of excess skin, fat, stretch marks, and a distorted belly button. It is difficult to get rid of those problems with only exercises. A tummy tuck procedure is the most common solution for mothers because it tightens the stomach muscles and removes excess skin and fat. Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) is a great tool for body sculpting, which can resolve several issues such as fat deposits on the inner and outer thighs, hips and flanks. These cause you to lose your hourglass figure and prevent you from being able to fit into the same clothes as before your pregnancies. PAL offers safe and smoother results with less bruising and swelling and reshapes unattractive bulges into complementary curves. Look at a mommy makeover as a well-deserved reward after all the physical and emotional challenges of motherhood and help restore your body to its former glory. You can be confident when you choose Marina’s experienced and board-certified plastic surgeons to take care of your mommy makeover.


“Drainless” is a fairly new term in the world of plastic surgery but has already gained attention and popularity. Here at Marina Plastic Surgery, we are always looking for ways to offer the best surgical advancements to our patients. As a result, our surgeons are leading pioneers in drainless surgery, a technique that offers significantly decreased pain and discomfort and a shorter recovery time for our patients.


To understand a “drainless mommy makeover”, you need to know about drains. When plastic surgery is performed, the surgeon places plastic tubes in your body called drains. They are put in place to help carry away excess fluids that can build up after your surgery. For many years, it was thought necessary to use drains to prevent seroma, which refers to any buildup of fluids within pockets or cavities in the body. But drains present some disadvantages. In recent times, the plastic surgery community has begun to realize that “drains” are not necessary.


Here are some clear disadvantages to using drains.

  • Being unable to shower while your drains are in your body, and have to take sponge baths instead.
  • Drains that require you to carry around a “collection build” usually pinned to your clothing.
  • Drains cause a lot of pain during recovery time. Patients have reported a major difference in pain and comfort level between surgery with drains and a subsequent surgery without drains.
  • Drains also require a significant amount of maintenance that can be a lot to manage.

Our doctors at Marina Plastic Surgery are among the best Mommy Makeover plastic surgeons in Los Angeles and can answer all questions you may have in a private, personalized consultation. In the meantime, you can find answers to some of the most common Mommy Makeover questions here:

Mommy Makeover is a plastic surgery procedure that helps a woman reverse the effects of childbirth on her body and restore and enhance her pre-baby figure. A combination of procedures, a mommy makeover primarily focuses around your breast, stomach and waistline areas and can also rejuvenate your face and vaginal region.

Which procedures you select for your mommy makeover procedure will vary based on your personal goals and factors unique to your body. Most of the mommy makeovers are a combination of breast-focused procedures paired with body enhancement procedures. For the breast area, many women choose to restore fullness with breast implants or fat transfer. In some cases, a breast lift or implants paired with a breast lift is necessary to achieve your desired look. For the body area, tummy tucks are commonly part of the Mommy Makeover to excise unwanted, loose skin on your abdomen. Liposuction is often part of achieving the ideal figure you desire. More options can be added to your Mommy Makeover. You could choose to include a facial rejuvenation procedure like eyelid surgery and/or a facelift. You could also consider a vaginal rejuvenation or non-surgical procedures such as skin tightening or an injectable to fully accomplish your makeover goals. When you come in for your personal consultation, one of our skilled Mommy Makeover surgeons will go over every detail and then design a treatment plan designed specifically for your body.

At Marina Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles Mommy Makeover procedures, among other key and sought-after treatments, are conducted under the attentive care of a qualified and experienced surgeon. Like any surgery, there are some risks associated with these procedures. The most important aspect of limiting these risks is to choose a qualified plastic surgeon who understands the benefits and the risks of combining procedures. When you decide to combine different surgeries, you will benefit from having only one recovery period, reduced exposure to anesthesia (you only go under once), and less anesthesia and operating room costs.

To achieve optimum results, you should wait until your body is back to a stable weight near your normal or pre-pregnancy weight. Ideally, you should be at a weight that you have maintained for at least three months during which time you maintained a regular exercise regimen and a healthy diet. Additionally, you should also wait until your breasts have returned to their normal size. A good rule is to wait for two to three months after you have stopped breastfeeding.

Many factors can influence your decision, such as when you plan to have more kids, and what parts of your body you want to improve. Your results from a Mommy Makeover surgery are likely to be affected by a future pregnancy. However, this procedure can be beneficial if you are not planning to have kids for many years and want to enjoy your body during that time. But if you intend to get pregnant again, say within the next two to three years, it might be best to hold off. The great thing is that a Mommy Makeover surgery will not affect your ability to get pregnant again.

Your recovery time will depend on which specific procedures you decide to have. A good rule is to plan on a 10 to 14-day recovery. During this time, you should expect to be off your feet and not going to work or doing your normal activities. Over the next few months, you will heal and get better. It takes approximately six months to see the full results of your Mommy Makeover surgery.
