A Modern Approach

Changes occur to the body with pregnancy and breastfeeding that many women would rather reverse. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Chang uses his skill and experience to evaluate your unique needs and cosmetic goals before creating a specific surgical plan. For most women, a mommy makeover includes:

  • Tummy tuck: Exercising and eating a healthy diet are excellent lifelong habits to develop. Unfortunately, as many mothers know, they can't reverse all of the changes to your body that happen during pregnancy. Stretched skin, especially after multiple pregnancies, often loses its ability to "bounce back" and hangs loosely over the waist. The abdominal muscles become separated and bulge outward. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Chang repairs those muscles and removes excess skin, giving you a flatter abdominal contour. In some cases, he can also remove stretch marks or a C-section scar during a tummy tuck.
  • Liposuction: Dr. Chang uses liposuction to remove pockets of fat that persist after pregnancy. Liposuction can help contour the hips, abdominal area, legs, under the chin, or practically any other area of stubborn fat. The results look smooth and natural.
  • Breast enhancement: Breastfeeding often takes a toll on the breasts' shape and volume. If you are happy with the size of your breasts but notice sagging, a breast lift can restore their perkiness. Combining a lift with breast implants enhances both the size and shape of your breasts. On the other hand, breast reduction surgery is an option if pregnancy left behind overly large breasts that limit your physical activity and cause neck and back pain. No matter which option you choose, Dr. Chang aims for a beautiful result that helps you feel more feminine.

Although those are the most common choices, a mommy makeover is truly a customizable operation, and you can add or forego many different procedures. For instance, some patients add anti-aging facial treatments to their mommy makeovers for a comprehensive rejuvenation.

Combining procedures is common and safe, but it is important to choose a plastic surgeon with extensive experience. Dr. Chang is meticulous about planning each surgery to ensure your safety and to get the best possible results.

Advanced Techniques

Dr. Chang uses a range of specialized techniques for each mommy makeover depending on the surgical options you choose. In some cases, for instance, a full tummy tuck isn't necessary, and he instead performs what's called a mini-tummy tuck. This is an appropriate approach for patients who don't need abdominal muscle repair or belly button repositioning.

Additionally, Dr. Chang is experienced with various types of liposuction, enabling him to choose the best approach for you. The choices include:

  • Traditional liposuction, which includes infusing the area with a saline solution that includes medication to helps swell and firm the fatty tissue, which is suctioned out with a thin cannula
  • Smartlipo MPX™, a laser-assisted method that melts fat using laser energy before it is removed
  • SAFELipo®, a 3-step process that uses a gentle form of power-assisted liposuction, enabling Dr. Chang to remove fat with little damage to surrounding tissues

Additionally, Dr. Chang uses advanced suturing techniques and carefully plans incisions so that they are hidden in the most discreet positions possible.

He also understands that for many mothers, planning a mommy makeover can be a challenge both logistically and emotionally. He and all of our team members use compassion, sensitivity, and precise planning to provide you with a process that is convenient and exciting, helping you restore a sense of femininity and confidence.

"Dr. Chang is wonderful. He is friendly, gentle, attentive, patient, and personable. None of my questions scared him off and I felt very comfortable with him."

Many of Dr. Chang's mommy makeover patients ask questions that involve the recovery process, which is understandable after a significant procedure. For patients with young children, recovering from surgery poses unique challenges. A good support system of loved ones and friends is especially helpful during the first 7 to 10 days following surgery.

Dr. Chang provides all patients with detailed postoperative instructions based on the procedures performed. If you had a tummy tuck and have small children, you should avoid lifting them for the first couple of weeks. Even though a mommy makeover combines different procedures, the recovery is generally not much longer than if you had a single procedure performed. Dr. Chang encourages mommy makeover patients to contact our office with any questions or concerns during their recovery.
