Safe Preparation

Dr. Tehrani will provide you with specific pre-operative instructions you must follow closely. He may direct you to quit smoking and to cease or reduce certain medications and supplements. You will be instructed to assign a trusted adult to drive you home the day of your procedure and to stay with you for at least the following 24 hours. These instructions are to ensure your safety and a successful procedure. 

Mommy Makeover Procedures

A mommy makeover surgery combines several popular cosmetic surgeries to provide dramatic results. The typical mommy makeover involves breast enhancement combined with a tummy tuck. In some cases, we can also perform liposuction to help you slim down isolated areas of stubborn fat. These procedures can be done in a single operation or in stages, depending on your needs. Researchers found that combining tummy tucks and breast augmentation does not increase complication rates.[2]

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery is designed to flatten and sculpt the midsection. After having children, women often suffer from abdominal separation and stretching of the skin on the tummy. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Tehrani repairs the abdominal muscles and trims away loose skin below the navel.

Dr. Tehrani will make a low incision from hip to hip so any resulting scarring will be well concealed by undergarments or bikini bottoms. He will continue to make the appropriate incision vertically towards the belly button. Excess skin bearing the majority of stretch marks will be removed. If the abdominal muscles are separated, this is referred to as diastasis recti. Dr. Tehrani will suture the muscles back together, allowing for a flatter, more toned belly. Tummy tucks have scored the highest cumulative “worth it” rating of all aesthetic procedures during a review of social media.[3]

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a popular way to restore breast volume after childbirth when the breasts tend to fluctuate in size and subsequently lose their youthful fullness. Using the latest saline and silicone breast implants, Dr. Tehrani brings back a round and voluptuous appearance to the breasts.

There are a number of options to choose from when it comes to breast augmentation. Incision sites, implant placement, size, shape, type, and textures will be some of the various considerations in your treatment plan. Dr. Tehrani will make the appropriate incision and introduce the implant to the breast pocket above or below the muscle of the chest wall. Women can expect a modest to a significant increase in their bust size following breast augmentation. 


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that addresses the fat deposits around the body. Using a slim tool called a cannula, Dr. Tehrani can sculpt the abdomen, back, flanks, hips, arms, thighs, and/or buttocks to your preferred contours. He will make tiny incisions to insert the cannula under the skin. Dr. Tehrani will guide it across the treatment area to remove stubborn fat that has accumulated. New curves can emerge once Dr. Tehrani shapes the selected areas with liposuction. 

A mommy makeover can combine two or more aesthetic procedures to meet your individual goals. CoolSculpting, fat transfer, breast lift, or facial procedures can be added or may substitute another procedure in a mommy makeover. Your personal goals and treatment plan will inform which procedures will be best for you.

Healthy Recovery

After a mommy makeover, you can expect your treatment sites to be tender and swollen. Your final results will gradually become apparent as the swelling subsides. After surgery, Dr. Tehrani will provide you with specific aftercare instructions. Depending on the procedures you undergo, you will need to wear specialized support and compression garments to minimize swelling and encourage proper healing. Most patients can resume normal activities, including work, within two weeks. Rigorous activities should be postponed for several weeks.

What is a mommy makeover?
