Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Mommy Makeover at West Empire Aesthetics

A Right to Feel Beautiful

As beautiful as it is to have children and raise your family, it can leave your body feeling less like your own. The breasts begin to sag, fat deposits become more stubborn, and loose skin and stretch marks are all hallmark signs of motherhood that you may be less than satisfied with. At West Empire Aesthetics, Dr. Mort Rizvi uses a combination of treatments called a Mommy Makeover to restore your youthful, pre-mommy appearance. Contact us at West Empire Aesthetics for your Los Angeles Mommy Makeover consultation!

Mommy Makeover Los Angeles

What is a Mommy Makeover?

Reclaim Your Body

Having a baby is difficult. It changes your body in many different ways. A Mommy Makeover can help alleviate some of the changes your body undergoes during and after pregnancy. The abdominal area is usually the most affected. When the uterus expands, it pushes against the abdominal wall, which causes the skin and muscles of the abdomen to stretch. After giving birth, these muscles don’t always contract completely, and no amount of dieting or exercise can return you to your pre-pregnancy self. On top of that, after breastfeeding, your breasts have often become enlarged and possibly saggy.

A Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles can help restore your body close to its original state. The following procedures may be performed to meet your overall aesthetic goal:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, a key component of a Mommy Makeover, specifically targets changes in breast size and shape often experienced after pregnancy and breastfeeding. This procedure involves the insertion of implants or fat transfer to restore or enhance breast volume. It can also improve symmetry and overall breast contour.

Do I need a breast augmentation?

A breast augmentation contributes significantly to the overall makeover transformation. It not only enhances the chest area but also helps to balance the proportions of the body, creating a more harmonious and confident silhouette. By addressing one of the most visibly affected areas of the post-pregnancy body, breast augmentation plays a crucial role in helping mothers regain their pre-pregnancy physique and boost their self-esteem.

Breast Lift

In a Mommy Makeover, a breast lift contributes to a rejuvenated appearance by enhancing the upper body's contour. It's particularly beneficial for women who are satisfied with the size of their breasts but want to correct the sagging and improve firmness. The lift can greatly boost self-confidence, making it essential for mothers looking to regain their pre-pregnancy body shape.

Ultimately, the best approach is to consult with your West Empire provider. They can assess your case, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend the most appropriate procedure or combination of procedures.

Choosing Between a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation

Deciding between a breast lift and breast augmentation depends on your specific goals and the changes in your breasts post-pregnancy.

Desired Outcome: If your primary concern is sagging and you're happy with your breast size, a breast lift may be better. It raises and firms the breasts without changing their size.

Volume Changes: If you've lost a significant amount of breast volume after pregnancy and desire fuller breasts, breast augmentation is suitable. This procedure can increase breast size and fullness.

Combining Procedures: In many cases, women opt for both procedures to achieve both lift and volume enhancement. This combination is quite common in Mommy Makeovers for a comprehensive transformation.

Breast Augmentation with Lift

The augmentation aspect focuses on restoring or increasing breast size. It's ideal for women who have experienced a decrease in breast volume due to pregnancy and nursing. Implants can be chosen based on desired size and shape, allowing a customized approach to meet individual aesthetic goals.

The lift component of the procedure tackles sagging and drooping breasts. It restores them to a more youthful position and contour, improving overall breast symmetry and shape. The nipples and areolas can also be repositioned to enhance the breasts' appearance further.

An Integrated Approach

In the context of a Mommy Makeover, combining breast augmentation with a lift addresses the two most common breast-related concerns women face post-pregnancy. This integrated approach ensures a more dramatic and satisfying transformation. It not only rejuvenates the breast area but also contributes significantly to restoring the pre-pregnancy body, boosting overall body image and confidence.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is an important procedure in a Mommy Makeover for women who experience increased breast size post-pregnancy, leading to physical discomfort or aesthetic concerns. This procedure involves the removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with the body and to alleviate discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

Am I a candidate for a breast reduction?

Determining if you are a candidate for breast reduction involves considering several factors related to your health, breast size, and personal goals.

Physical Discomfort: If you experience physical discomfort like back pain, neck pain, or skin irritation under the breasts due to large, heavy breasts, you might be a good candidate.

Breast Size: Women with disproportionately large breasts compared to their body frame often seek breast reduction for relief and a more balanced appearance.

Health Status: Good candidates are generally in good overall health, without any conditions that could impair healing or increase surgery risks.

Non-smoker: Smoking can affect healing, so non-smokers or those who can quit smoking for a period are better candidates.

Realistic Expectations: Understanding the potential outcomes, including scarring and possible changes in breast sensation, is important.

Age and Life Stage: While there's no strict age limit, it's typically recommended for breasts to be fully developed. Additionally, if you plan to breastfeed in the future, this might impact your decision timing.

Weight Stability: Being at a stable weight is ideal since significant weight fluctuations can affect the results.

Consulting with your West Empire providers, they will evaluate your individual situation, discuss your goals and concerns, and determine if breast reduction is a suitable option for you.

Arm Lift

For many women, the arms can be a challenging area to tone, especially after pregnancy and weight changes. An arm lift can significantly enhance the shape and appearance of the arms, making them appear more defined and in better proportion with the rest of the body.

Will I have noticeable scars from an arm lift?

Scarring is a common concern with arm lifts. The procedure typically involves an incision from the underarm to the elbow, which means there will be visible scars. However, these scars are generally placed in less visible areas, such as the inner arm, to minimize their appearance. Over time, with proper care, these scars can fade significantly but may not disappear entirely.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck dramatically improves the shape and tone of the abdomen, creating a flatter and more contoured midsection. It effectively eliminates loose, sagging skin and tightens the abdominal wall, which can stretch out from pregnancy. This leads to a more aesthetically pleasing and firmer abdominal profile.

Is a tummy tuck permanent?

Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the results. It's important to have realistic expectations and understand that while a tummy tuck can significantly improve the abdominal area's appearance, it does not prevent future changes to the body that might occur due to lifestyle, aging, or pregnancy.


Liposuction is a key component in a Mommy Makeover, targeting stubborn fat deposits that often remain resistant to diet and exercise after pregnancy. This procedure involves the removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms, using a suction technique.

Pregnancy can alter body fat distribution, making localized fat pockets difficult to eliminate. Liposuction effectively addresses these areas, sculpting and contouring the body to a more desired shape. This procedure is particularly useful for women who have regained their pre-pregnancy weight but are unable to target specific areas with fat loss.

How much weight will I lose with liposuction?

Liposuction in a Mommy Makeover is not a weight-loss solution but a contouring tool, ideal for refining and reshaping the body's silhouette post-pregnancy. This procedure can greatly boost confidence and satisfaction with one's postpartum body.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is an increasingly popular procedure included in many of our Los Angeles Mommy Makeovers, focusing on enhancing and reshaping the buttocks. This procedure involves transferring fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, to the buttocks. The goal is to create a fuller, more lifted, and contoured backside.

In the overall scheme of a Mommy Makeover, a Brazilian Butt Lift complements other procedures like liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast surgeries. It contributes to a more balanced and proportionate body silhouette. By enhancing the buttocks, a BBL can significantly improve how clothes fit and boost overall body confidence.

BBL Benefits at West Empire Aesthetics

The BBL procedure not only offers the benefit of buttock enhancement but also involves contouring other areas through fat removal, providing a dual benefit. This makes it a valuable component of a Mommy Makeover for those looking to address post-pregnancy body changes comprehensively.


Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure often included in a Mommy Makeover that focuses on the reshaping and resizing of the labia minora and labia majora, the external parts of the female genitalia. This procedure is sought after for both cosmetic and functional reasons, especially after the changes brought about by childbirth.

Childbirth can stretch and sometimes alter the shape and size of the labia, leading to discomfort, irritation, difficulties with hygiene, and self-consciousness. Labiaplasty addresses these issues by trimming excess tissue and reshaping the area, which can relieve discomfort and improve the appearance of the genital area.

Am I a candidate for labiaplasty?

This procedure contributes to a woman's overall sense of rejuvenation post-pregnancy. By addressing intimate areas affected by childbirth, labiaplasty completes the comprehensive approach of a Mommy Makeover, ensuring that internal changes are also addressed, contributing to a woman's overall satisfaction and comfort with her body.

What are the benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

Power in Paired Procedures

While a traditional Mommy Makeover consists of liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast lift, you can customize your makeover to fit your unique aesthetic needs and desires. Want liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift? We can make that happen. Some benefits of the Mommy Makeover include tightening loose skin, one of the main concerns after pregnancy, potentially minimizing stretch marks, getting your pre-pregnancy figure back, and restoring breast fullness and height. In addition, after having a Mommy Makeover Los Angeles patients can boost their confidence and overall well-being.

Am I a candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover Candidates

Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover are women seeking to restore their pre-pregnancy body shape. This comprehensive treatment is designed to address issues like sagging breasts, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn fat deposits. Good candidates are those who have completed their families, as future pregnancies can alter the results.

Health plays a crucial role in eligibility. Candidates should be in good overall health, non-smokers, and at a stable weight close to their ideal. It's important for potential candidates to have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.

Certain conditions can disqualify someone from this treatment. These include serious health issues like heart disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and certain allergies, especially to anesthesia. Age is not typically a disqualifier, but older patients may have increased risks associated with surgery.

Ultimately, a thorough consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is essential to determine if a Mommy Makeover is appropriate, ensuring both safety and satisfaction with the results.

Your Mommy Makeover Consultation

As Unique As You

During your consultation for a Mommy Makeover, we will evaluate your health and discuss any pre-existing conditions you may have. We will examine your breasts, stomach, breasts, and any other area you may want to address for thickness, skin elasticity, and skin quality. Photos will be taken, and we will then discuss your treatment options and make a treatment plan.

Your Mommy Makeover Procedure

Flatter Yourself

The mommy makeover is designed to do two main things:

Lift and tighten the Breasts

The Mommy Makeover removes fat from specific areas of your body. Much like a traditional breast lift, excess skin is removed from your breasts, and they are lifted and tightened to give you a more youthful look. Mommy Makeovers can also include breast implants if you so desire.

Contour and Tone

In the tummy tuck procedure, muscles in the abdomen are tightened, and excess skin as a result of pregnancy is removed. When your surgeon tightens abdominal muscles, it makes your stomach flatter, and removing excess skin makes the stomach firmer. If you desire, Dr. Rizvi can also perform liposuction on hips, thighs, and love handles.

Mommy Makeover Results

Redefine Motherhood

Mommy makeover results may not be completely visible for a couple of months. While some aspects of the Mommy Makeover, like breast reduction and removal of excess skin, may be visible immediately, it will take some time for full results to be visible. With time, the implants (if you have them) will settle, and scars will be less visible.

Mommy Makeover Recovery and Aftercare

Recover Your Essence

Following Dr. Rizvi’s instructions for post-operative care is vital to achieving the best results and maintaining your health. Following your surgery, you will be bandaged with gauze and a compression garment or support bra to minimize swelling and provide breast support. If you have liposuction, a compression garment will also be used in these areas to minimize swelling and keep the area stable. Be sure and follow all directions and go to all follow-up appointments.
