The patient’s unique anatomical and personal cosmetic needs will be taken into account while creating a customized mommy makeover surgery plan. Board certified and standout plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie MD provides mommy makeover to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.


Key Procedures

Plastic surgery procedures that are usually a part of a mommy makeover include the following:


Breast Implants

Following a pregnancy and breastfeeding, some women may experience loss of breast volume. This can be corrected with a breast implant surgery. The procedure will involve surgical insertion of saline or silicone implants in the breast tissue to increase the size of breasts.


Breast Lift

The breast skin may sometimes get overstretched during a pregnancy, causing the breasts to sag. This condition can be improved with the help of breast lift surgery. The surgeon will remove excess skin and tissue to create firmer and more youthful looking breasts.


Breast Reduction

Some women may develop excessively large breasts during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast reduction plastic surgery procedure can be performed as a part of a mommy makeover to make the breast size more proportionate to the rest of the body.



Liposuction is one of the most popular body contouring procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover. It can help to reduce excess fat tissue from targeted fat pockets in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, flanks, breasts, and upper arms.


Tummy Tuck

A pregnancy will usually take its toll on the abdomen. The abdominal skin may become loose and excess tissue deposits may also occur. That makes tummy tuck surgery a vital part of a mommy makeover to restore a firmer and flatter abdomen and also mitigate stretch marks to an extent from the lower abdomen.


Lower Body Lift

Loose skin in areas such as the thighs and buttocks can be tightened and a subtle lift can be provided with lower body lift surgery. Brazilian butt lift and thigh lift are commonly included as part of a mommy makeover procedure.


Non-Surgical Procedures   

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are often included in a mommy makeover to make the overall procedure less invasive. Laser, ultrasound or radio frequency based techniques are more popular nowadays, which can create more effective outcomes. Some non-invasive procedures can also help to reduce the stubborn problem of cellulite.



Most women may have to go through a downtime of about one to two weeks after which they can return to their normal routine. The overall recovery will vary according to the type and number of procedures performed. The percipient and hardworking Dr. Gary Motykie MD receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and communities in this part of California for mommy makeover.
