What is a mommy makeover?
Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi believes every woman who gives birth should have the opportunity to regain her pre-pregnancy body. While childbirth is an amazing thing, you may want your pre-pregnancy body back. A mommy makeover can help women rejuvenate their body and enhance their natural beauty. This surgery combines several cosmetic surgeries that target different parts of the body. Based on your needs, we can tailor the surgeries to address the breasts, abdomen, hips, and thighs. The ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are patients who have completed childbearing. If you have tried to regain a pre-pregnancy shape through diet and exercise, but it doesn't seem to work, you could attain your desired results through a mommy makeover. Some of the most common techniques used during a mommy makeover include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"Dr. Khorsandi is the best! - I began seeing Dr. Khorsandi in 2016 for skin care and fillers. I have considered having a mommy makeover for awhile but wasn’t sure if I would find the right MD. I realized after attending a few appointments and seeing how his wonderful staff and he interacted with each other that he would be the best choice. When I was waiting for my pre-op I heard him answer a question. He was asked why he was open to learning and sharing with other MDs, He replied when they succeed we all succeed, there isn’t a competition. He is always patient, kind, and informative. I am 1 week post op and can say I’m feeling amazing, recovering well, and looking forward to a brighter,healthier future. It isn’t a competition when he is the absolute best."- Anonymous / Vitals / Nov 20, 2018

"I have never been so happy with my results!! I went in just for a consult because I felt like my face was starting to have a lot of wrinkles and my face was hollowing out due to my age. Dr. Khorsandi recommended a PRP facial (also known as vampire facial), some botox and fillers for me. I came in for a PRP facial and was a little nervous about it. Melanie, my esthetician reassured me and made sure to walk me through the whole process. The plasma (antibodies) in my blood were used on my face to help rejuvenate my skin. My face has never felt so soft. I came back 2 days later for some fillers. I felt so overwhelmed because there were so many different fillers. I was unsure what fillers would work best for me. With the expertise of Dr. Khorsandi, he helped me decide what fillers I needed. I got botox, 2 syringes of restylane lyft and 2 syringes of restylane defyne. My face was a little swollen for about 2 days but it was expected. It has been a month since I got my facial and fillers and I DO NOT HAVE ANY REGRETS. I've been getting a ton of compliments. My friends & family can't tell I got any fillers but they can tell I look fuller and good. I also want to say the staff at VIP Plastic Surgery were so friendly! They greeted me as soon as I walked into the door. They offered me water. My wait time was a little long but I would expect to be waiting the whole day at a professional/popular place. I would be concerned if the wait time was an hour or less. (means the place sucks). I also want to thank Catherine, the practice manager for recommending some great skin care products for my face! She really knows what products work best for my skin. I definitely will be coming back in a few weeks for a mommy makeover consult."- T.L. / Google / Jan 25, 2019
"Best Plastic Surgeon in Vegas! - Dr. Khorsandi delivers an amazing experience and results. I visited four surgeons before I decided to have my surgery with him, from my very first consult I was very impress with his skills, his persona and staff members. I was very hesitant about the size I wanted to go for and every time I visited or called his office every one was very accommodating and kind to answer all my questions. They..."- C. / RealSelf / Nov 14, 2018
Mommy Makeover Surgical Technique
We select the best surgical techniques based on which parts of the body you feel concerned about or hope to improve. For the breasts, common issues include sagging, loose skin and reduced breast volume. Some women will have breasts that remain enlarged. Breast reduction, breast augmentation, or a breast lift can address these problems. Often, patients receive a combination of these techniques for a youthful, beautiful post-pregnancy breast appearance. The most common example is breast augmentation with a lift. Additionally, women commonly experience loose skin, stretch marks, and stubborn pockets of fat on the midsection. We can treat these problems with liposuction and skin tightening techniques to remove excess skin and lift the remaining tissue into a new position.
What to Expect With A Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover treats multiple parts of the body. Because we perform various procedures at once, this invasive surgery often requires an overnight stay. At an accredited surgical facility, we start the surgery by administering general anesthesia, and it can take three hours or longer to complete. The amount of time depends on how many treatments we perform.
After the surgery, most women find the recovery to be a slow process. Walking upright is difficult in the first several weeks, and we recommend that patients take it slow during the initial recovery process. Depending on your treatment areas, it could take between six months to a full year to see your final results. With that being said, most patients can go back to a normal routine about three weeks; however, exercise is discouraged until at least 6 – 8 weeks after surgery.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
How Safe Is The Mommy Makeover?
Because we combine multiple surgeries, a mommy makeover is considered an invasive procedure. Anytime you undergo a surgery that requires multiple treatments at once, the overall risks increase. For this reason, we strongly recommend that patients find an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who has the training and skill to perform multiple procedures in one setting. Under the hands of an expert plastic surgeon, like Dr. Khorsandi, the risks are significantly reduced, and complications are rare.
Can I Have Babies After Surgery?
We highly recommended that you no longer want to have children before undergoing a mommy makeover. Pregnancy may compromise the results of the surgery because additional skin stretching and weight gain is inevitable. Patients who are uncertain if they will have additional children should consult their surgeon to discuss the best approach to take.
How Do You Get Rid Of Stretch Marks?
The appearance of stretch marks may decrease after removing the excess skin. The tightening of the skin and underlying tissues will also help make the marks less visible. If needed, we can reduce stretch marks with other nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser procedures or RF microneedling.
Will I Have Scars?
While a mommy makeover creates a beautiful new shape and figure for a woman, unfortunately, it does include some scarring. The scars are most common with a breast lift procedure and a tummy tuck. Dr. Khorsandi will make every effort possible to create clean incisions and minimize scarring as much as possible. If any scars that do occur from this surgery, you can easily conceal with undergarments or swimsuits.
