Motherhood proves your body capable of sustaining another human life. The changes your body goes through to raise your children can leave you almost unrecognizable to yourself. Beverly Hills moms come in with a range problems getting back their pre-pregnancy bodies such as:
- Abdominal muscle separation.
- Loss of breast volume and lift after breastfeeding.
- Excess fat and sagging skin.
- Visible C-section scars.
Dr. Bruno’s approach combines procedures into a mommy makeover that can help you get your pre-baby body back into shape.
Should I Get a Mommy Makeover?
If you feel less confident after having your baby or have had children years ago but want to set back the clock, a mommy makeover can help you look the way you want. Many mothers may be hesitant to undergo a mommy makeover, but the procedure is completely safe and Dr. Bruno comprehensively screens women before mommy makeover to ensure:
- Good mental and physical health.
- No future childbearing.
- Stable weight to maintain results.
For a mommy makeover to have lasting results you should not plan on having children after the procedure or gaining weight. Both of these could affect results and require additional surgery. If you would like a mommy makeover, it is best to wait until after your weight is stable and you have had all of your children.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Focus On?
A mommy makeover is designed to enhance your confidence by sculpting your body. During a consultation, you will have the chance to speak with Dr. Bruno about the changes that you want to make. Dr. Bruno will discuss treatment options and recovery time to give you an idea of what procedures you would like. A mommy makeover can include:
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
- Tummy Tuck
Dr. Bruno can also add other procedures that you feel will complement your new body such as a facelift.
Mommy Makeover Procedure and Recovery
Once you have developed a plan that best fits your goals, Dr. Bruno will follow the surgical plan that gives you the results that you want. Because every mommy makeover differs, here are the surgeries that are usually combined:
- Liposuction: A cannula, small tube, is inserted into a small incision to remove fat deposits.
- Tummy tuck: Excess skin and tissue are removed from your waist and hips. If you have separated abdominal muscles, these will be reattached during this procedure.
- Breast lift: Sagging skin and breast tissue are removed to reposition breasts higher. You will keep the same breast volume, but have firmer breasts.
- Breast augmentation: Breast enlargement to restore lost volume after nursing.
After surgery, you will be monitored for any possible complications and sent home to recover once you feel well. Dr. Bruno recommends that a friend or loved one comes to pick you up after surgery.

Recovery for Mommy Makeover
Depending on the procedures you’ve chosen for your mommy makeover, recovery may take at least 7-10 days off from work. Following surgery, Beverly Hills patients should wear compression garments to prevent swelling and speed healing. You will have several follow-up exams with Dr. Bruno as you heal to ensure your complete recovery.
