What Is A Mommy Make-Over?

Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery Newport Beach

The uniquely female ability to conceive, give birth and nourish a child by lactation changes a woman’s body and breast in ways, which in turn may be sources of dissatisfaction. Aging is the other inexorable force, from which none of us are immune. When the reflection in the mirror becomes unrecognizable and unfamiliar, a woman may choose to research her options but the ultimate decision is more complex because as a mother, she is the central figure in the family. Not only must she define the “problems,” or features, she doesn’t like but she must also find and entrust someone else to counsel and possibly be the “solution” agent. Like any other elective surgery patient, a “Mommy Makeover” candidate will have to consider her personal circumstances, including her health history, finances, safety, outcomes, as well as logistics of who will take care of her duties as mother and wife, during her recovery.

My interest in “Mommy Makeovers” is personal, as well as professional. I was fortunate to have both of my children during General Surgery and Plastic Surgery residencies and to share parenting duties with my husband of 26 years. I do understand the observations which my patients offer. In fielding general questions from the RealSelf.com community pertaining to “Mommy Makeovers”, I have acquired better insights about some of the concerns potential patients may have.
