Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Monica

Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a unique procedure, mostly because every single one is different. Following pregnancy, many women experience changes in their body that they would like to correct with cosmetic surgery. These changes are different for every woman. In some cases, the breasts may become droopy. In other cases, there may be excess skin on the belly. Whatever these changes may be, Dr. Karamanoukian routinely helps women restore their pre-pregnancy body. In many cases, his skill and artistic eye can help women look even better than they did before pregnancy. For more information, please read below or call our office today.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

For patients considering a cosmetic touchup after pregnancy, it’s important to understand that a mommy makeover is not any single procedure. Instead, it’s a combination of procedures to address specific physical changes that have occurred as a result of pregnancy. A mommy makeover may only include two procedures, but it may include more depending on the situation. In order to perform among the best results possible in a mommy makeover, Dr. Karamanoukian will choose from the following treatment options:

Breast Enhancement

With his full array of breast enhancement procedures, Dr. Karamanoukian can reshape your breasts so they are the size and shape you desire. Each procedure is done with individualized care and attention to detail, giving you the results you deserve.

Contrary to many patients’ understanding, liposuction is not a weight loss method. Instead, it is a way to precisely sculpt areas of stubborn fat, giving you the contours you’re seeking. With Dr. Karamanoukian’s total proficiency, you are assured beautiful, natural results.

Tummy Tuck

As a longstanding cosmetic procedure, tummy tucks serve to eliminate excess skin in the belly. For post-pregnancy patients, this option is very popular to restore a toned and slender midsection. Please find out more about how this procedure can help you.

C-Section Scar Revision

Dr. Karamanoukian has years of experience revising many types of scars, and a C-section scar is no match for his expertise. With his precise, careful revision techniques, his patients emerge with a drastically reduced C-section scar and significantly improved confidence.

As you can see, the primary treatment areas are the breasts and tummy. This is simply because these are the areas that are most affected by pregnancy.

  • With a combination of the above procedures, Dr. Karamanoukian can help patients correct the following issues that can arise from pregnancy:
  • Sagging, droopy breasts that have lost their perky, youthful appearance
  • Sagging skin in the tummy that has lost its elasticity
  • Stretch marks
  • A weakened inner abdominal wall that often appears as a bulge underneath the skin
  • Unsightly scar following a C-section

A Note on Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a fairly comprehensive procedure, requiring a thorough evaluation and specific treatment plan before beginning. My goal is the longest lasting results with the most beautiful, natural appearance possible. For this reason, I recommend that women undergo mommy makeovers once they are done having children. This way we can minimize the likelihood of revision surgery. If you have any questions at all regarding a mommy makeover, please call my office.
