What is a mommy makeover?
“We love our children, we just don’t love what they do to our bodies”- My Wife
Being a parent is one of the most rewarding experiences. Pregnancy with weight gain and loss, breast enlargement and deflation, and giving birth via vaginal delivery or c-section takes a toll on a woman’s body. Luckily, women today are still able to look and feel young after having children with a transformation known as a Signature Mommy Makeover. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime Schwartz is a specialist at defining the proper procedures to rejuvenate and reinvigorate your “Body After Baby”. This often requires a combination of skin lifting and tightening techniques, as well as possibly targeting fat reduction to correct the physical effects of childbearing. Call Jaime S Schwartz MD FACS in Beverly Hills, CA, to learn more about how this procedure could help you feel better about your body after pregnancy.
What Are The Benefits Of A Mommy Makeover?
The main benefit of a mommy makeover is its ability to address multiple issues at the same time. A mommy makeover can incorporate several improvements, including:
- Improving, lifting, and rejuvenating the breasts
- Tightening loose, saggy skin
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
- Toning and tightening the stomach and abs
- Eliminating stubborn fat from multiple body areas
- Helping to return your body to its pre-pregnancy look
- Boosting confidence and self-image
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"Mommy Makeover After 3 Kids. Beverly Hills, CA - I went to Dr Schwartz for a mommy makeover. After having three kids and breastfeeding them I was really unhappy with how my breasts sagged. My breasts were always on the large side, so after breastfeeding they were the opposite of perky. Also, my last two children were C-sections. After my first baby who was a natural birth I was able to go back to my pre baby body. After the c-sections, my..."- A. / RealSelf / Mar 29, 2016
"If you want the best plastic surgeon look no further than Dr. Schwartz. My experience with him and his office was stellar from beginning to end. After my 2 c-sections, I was left with an unsightly dent at the incision point. I was Reffered to dr. Schwartz and upon entering his office, I felt at home. Melissa, his manager, greeted me with the utmost respect and kindness. At first, I just wanted a scar revision but then we started talking about doing other procedures on top of it. At the end, I decided I was going to do the additional procedures at another time and Dr. Schwartz was very understanding of that. He wasn't pushy and was supportive of my choice. The follow up appointments were just as pleasant. The nurse practitioner, Chelsea Hagopian was very organized and detailed about the surgery. She even gave me my prescriptions weeks in advance so I would have my meds ready the day of. Through our consultation meetings, I feel as though Dr. Schwartz really understands and sees the human body the way I do and what needs to be done in my particular case to fix it. He's also very charming, smart, and beyond nice. 5 stars all around for him and his practice."- S.E. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2016

"I can't say enough about Dr Schwartz. Not only is he extremely talented in his work (I got a tummy tuck and lipo.... shhhhh don't tell anyone lol ) Dr. Schwartz is also very compassionate and honest, he stands by his work. I have had a couple of surgeries with him and although I am still in the healing stages with my surgeries I am confident that it will look fabulous. Let's talk convenience for you folks coming from Orange county not only does he have an office in Beverly Hills he has one in Whittier which is a quick drive.!!! His amazing assistant Esther is the best, she listens to you and accommodates your schedule. She genuinely has your interest in mind and wants you to have the best experience with your procedure. For all you who don't want surgery and have stubborn fat Coolsculpting is a must (see my pic) . . It's gets rid of that stubborn fat areas that just won't go away. . Thanks Dr Schwartz fot having that miracle machine!! . Can't wait for my next session!!! :-)"- R.D. / Yelp / Sep 22, 2015

From the beginning Dr. Schwartz & staff made my experience an amazing. Booking my initial consultation was not a problem, convenient times and dates were available. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the lovely Melissa who gave me an incredible introduction into the practice what to anticipate with my day in the office. As you could imagine, I had a million and one questions ready for the doctor and a long check list of things I would want to see in a surgeon before I choose "the one". From the moment he walked in, Dr. Schwartz was incredible. There aren't many doctors you can find in LA that are actually genuine, but Dr.Schwartz is. He explained thoroughly what it meant to have circumferential liposuction of the abdomen and the flanks means, entails, the do's and don'ts, recovery time and everything in between!! By the time I got to my pocket list of questions they were all answered in a genuine manner! Dr. Schwartz and staff made my road to surgery like a walk in the park. And of course, I could not have asked for better results, I COULD NOT have asked for better. Thank you Dr. Schwartz!!"- D.S. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2016
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Although certain parts of every women’s body change with childbearing, the long-term result for what needs to be corrected are different based on body type, as well as goals and desires. During the personalized consultation, Dr. Schwartz will listen to your ideas and goals. It’s helpful to have pictures from before pregnancy so we can see what has changed. The exam will be thorough since a Signature Mommy Makeover often requires a 360 view of things. There is no universal correct procedure for everyone, and most procedures combine to give you the body and results you desire. These procedures can be combined and part of the Schwartz Rapid Recovery technique that allows you to return to your daily life quicker.
What Can Be Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Signature Breast Procedures:
The breasts take a toll during pregnancy and breastfeeding. They enlarge and engorge, sometimes triple or quadruple the size before pregnancy. A lot of women can feed better from one breast vs the other, which can lead to asymmetries. Nipples and areolas can become stretched and elongated. Most breast procedures are aimed at lifting the breasts, correcting any volume deficiencies, and tightening stretched-out skin. Many women will require a breast lift or Mastopexy for breast sagging, known as breast ptosis.
A lot of women seek out Dr. Schwartz for his Signature Breast Lipolift®, which is a minimally invasive procedure that can:
- Tighten skin around the breasts
- Reshape the breasts
- Reduce the size of the breasts, if necessary
- Correct postpartum deflation
Signature Tummy Tuck:
During pregnancy, the abdomen stretches to accommodate your growing child. The external skin expands, which can cause thinning, stretch marks, and excess skin. Internally, the connective tissue covering your muscles and abdomen, known as fascia, also stretches. Since it is connective tissue, once it stretches, it does not go back to its previous tightness. This laxity is known as Rectus Diastasis, which means separation of the rectus or six-pack muscles.
A Signature Tummy Tuck is designed to:
- Tighten the stomach internally and externally
- Reshape the sides of the body
- Flatten the belly and waist
Signature Nipple Surgery:
Most women know that breastfeeding not only takes a toll on the breast but also on the nipples. Dr. Schwartz is an expert at Signature Nipple Reduction Surgery as well as inverted nipple correction. Either of these may be combined with any other procedures or can be performed in the office by themselves.
Signature Brazilian Butt Lift:
Hormonal changes, as well as weight fluctuations, can lead to fat staying in unwanted areas and the areas of previous “curves” deflated. Many women take advantage of the excess, unwanted fat to transfer it to their buttocks and hips as part of a Signature Brazilian butt lift.
Mommy Makeover FAQs
Can a mommy makeover reduce the appearance of stretch marks?
If stretch marks exist on an area of the body (i.e., breast, tummy, etc.) that is going to be lifted and tightened, they may be removed when the excess skin is trimmed away. For any stretch marks left behind, as well as any other skin irregularities that may exist, there are skin-rejuvenating techniques that can help fade and remove these imperfections. These options can be discussed with Dr. Jaime Schwartz during your initial consultation.
What is Schwartz Scar Secure?
Dr. Schwartz has been published in peer-reviewed journal articles on wound healing and is a Principal Investigator for an FDA clinical trial aimed at reducing and correcting poorly healed scars. Dr. Schwartz’s protocols known as Schwartz Scar Secure™ were developed to help minimize scars based on scientific data. Dr. Schwartz chooses to show some of his patients' scars on websites and social media if the patient gives consent. Scars are a part of surgery, and he is proud of achieving the best possible scars for his patients.
What is Schwartz Rapid Recuperation?
Many women seek out Dr. Schwartz for his precise results and commitment to safety. Part of this commitment is known as Schwartz Rapid Recuperation™. Dr. Schwartz has developed techniques and protocols before, during, and after the procedures to allow for the fastest possible recovery. From the use of “gentle anesthesia” to being able to walk right after surgery, he believes in getting you back to your daily life as quickly as possible.
