Dr. Cat Begovic is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, California. She is a three-time winner of Best of Beverly Hills Award in the cosmetic surgeons category.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, vagina and buttocks.

What’s Included in the procedure?

A mommy makeover is any combination of these procedures and is customized to each patient depending on their concerns and aesthetic goals. Possible procedures in a mommy makeover include:

Plastic Surgery is not an exact science. Every person has a unique anatomy and their own idea of what their body goals should be. Consultations are vital so we can work together to create the best possible plan, customized for your personal needs and goals.

Things You Need To Know Before a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills

I consider mommy makeover to be one of the most rewarding and life changing surgeries I perform. Being a mother myself, I am personally familiar with many of the changes pregnancy can have on our bodies. Not only do the surgeries help restore physical changes but they also often improve core strength and function and help women feel more comfortable in clothing and with exercise and activities. Because many of these surgeries involve surgery on opposite parts of the body, for post op care and healing reasons, they may need to be done staged, at separate surgeries to provide the best results. I believe in doing each surgery as perfectly as possible. We will discuss the order of procedures and timing at the consultation.

 

How Should I Prepare for a Mommy Makeover?

How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take

The total time of your surgery will vary with the extent and type of procedure you are having. Most of the surgeries involved in a mommy makeover involve skin tightening or fat removal or re-shaping. For most of these surgeries, I have developed special techniques that result in natural-looking results with a nearly invisible suture line. I take extreme pride in my attention to detail with every single step of the surgeries I perform and take my time in each procedure to create the best possible results.

It's Not Selfish to Make Yourself a Priority

Mommy makeover is one of the most life-changing surgeries that I do! My patients feel physically stronger, more comfortable every day, and much more confident in clothing and even a bathing suit or bikini. Also, many patients are able to exercise better. Moms do so much for their families and everyone else around them. It gives me so much joy to help give them the improved self-confidence and the self-care they deserve.

FAQ

Can I have a BBL and Tummy Tuck at the same time?

Because these surgeries involve surgery on opposite parts of the body, and for post-op care and healing reasons, they need to be done staged, at separate surgeries to provide the best results. I believe in doing each surgery as perfectly as possible. I will discuss the order of procedures and timing at the consultation. It is extremely important to take into consideration the total OR time and also post-op care that is needed for each surgery.

I am pregnant. How soon after I deliver can I have surgery?

You would want your weight to be stable or to be close to goal weight prior to having a tummy tuck - this is usually at least 4-6 months after delivery. However, I book surgeries about 6-9 months in advance so we could start with a consultation a few months after you deliver or when you are about 10 pounds within your goal weight.

How soon after breastfeeding would you recommend being able to come in for a lift and implants?

For any breast surgery you would want to make sure you are done breastfeeding and have no nipple discharge or liquid. That varies from person to person but on average it is several months after finishing breastfeeding.
