Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills
Restore Your Body After Pregnancy with Dr. Ryan Stanton
They say that a baby changes everything. Well, this adage is certainly true when it comes to your body. Many women tell us that after pregnancy, they don’t feel as confident in their body’s appearance as they did before. Fortunately, there’s now a reason to be confident in your post-baby body!
A Beverly Hills mommy makeover combines breast surgery, a tummy tuck, and other procedures to restore the body’s appearance after pregnancy, childbirth, and delivery. Dr. Ryan Stanton, our expert Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, has performed countless mommy makeovers and is ready to help you get your body back.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
After your baby is born, it will take a few months for your body to heal and recover. Many women expect that their bodies will return to normal after they’ve healed and are surprised to find that their body never quite returns to its pre-pregnancy shape.
- The abdomen rapidly expands, stretching the skin and muscles.
- Hormonal changes cause the body to accumulate more fat.
- The breasts swell as they begin producing milk, leading to stretched skin and tissues.
Although post-pregnancy changes are very common, many may be disappointed by their new look or feel less confident in their body’s appearance. Mommy makeovers are an incredible solution to these post-pregnancy body changes! Dr. Stanton can combine various plastic surgery treatments to create the customized plan that works best for your unique needs.
Standard Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover
While there is no exact formula that will work for each patient, most choose to pair two or more of these options:
- Breast Augmentation – Increases breast size and restores volume loss after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Breast Lift – Lifts and rejuvenates sagging breasts.
- Tummy Tuck – Tightens up the tummy and restores a flat abdominal appearance.
- Liposuction – Removes stubborn fat deposits and enhances shape and contour in treated areas.
- Butt Implants – Provides shape and enhancement to the buttocks.
- Labiaplasty – Removes excess skin from the labia to enhance the appearance of your genital area and to reduce discomfort.
What to Expect on Surgery Day
As you prepare for surgery, our team will provide more details about what to expect. We’ll tell you when to arrive, how long you’ll be in surgery, and when to arrange for a ride home. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. We want you to feel comfortable and confident as you prepare for surgery and to have as much information as you need.
If you’re undergoing several operations, we may need to break them into groups. For example, you may get breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and breast lift surgery on one day and butt implants and labiaplasty on another day, after you’ve recovered.
We typically perform mommy makeover under general anesthesia. The medications we use will put your body into a comfortable, sleep-like state. You’ll be unaware of what is happening and feel no pain or discomfort during surgery. Our anesthesiologist and nursing team will carefully monitor you throughout the procedure.
After your surgery, you’ll spend some time in recovery before you’re ready to head home. Our skilled nurses will teach you how to care for your body as it heals and make sure you have all of your aftercare instructions ready to go. Many patients are cleared to return home on the same day as their operation.
Recovery After a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills
Moms are busy. We know you don’t have a lot of time to sit around and recover. After your mommy makeover, we’ll help you to recover quickly and return to your daily activities as soon as possible.
Your specific recovery instructions will depend on which exact treatments you receive. Generally, we ask patients to gradually return to physical activity, with most missing approximately one to two weeks from work. Gentle movement and walking are often possible a few days after surgery with full return to physical activity after six weeks.
You’ll likely experience bruising, swelling, and tenderness, as with any surgical procedure. Dr. Stanton will prescribe pain medication if needed to reduce discomfort after surgery.

Los Angeles Mommy Makeover: Frequently Asked Questions
A mommy makeover is a combination treatment, which means you can pair several surgeries to achieve one cohesive result. Combining treatments has many benefits, including reducing the number of trips to the operating room, often saving patients money and making surgery more convenient. Additionally, when you receive two or more procedures together, you can recover from both at the same time, reducing your downtime after surgery.
If you’ve had babies and are no longer happy with your body’s appearance, a mommy makeover may be right for you. Dr. Stanton will work with you to find solutions to your post-baby body concerns. You will have to undergo a full medical examination to see if you qualify for this procedure.
Pregnancy after a mommy makeover is medically safe, but not aesthetically recommended. The rapid expansion of your abdomen and the swelling of the breast tissues during pregnancy can lead to significant changes that will hinder your surgical results. We also advise our patients to avoid large weight fluctuations after their surgery for similar reasons.
Many women are anxious and excited to receive a post-pregnancy transformation after pregnancy. Dr. Stanton looks forward to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals, but he wants to make sure that we do things safely. It is best to wait at least six months after pregnancy and breastfeeding before surgery.
