What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover is a combination of aesthetic procedures designed to help mothers address the changes pregnancy and breastfeeding have made to their bodies. Mommy Makeovers are tailored to the preferences and goals of each individual woman. Mommy Makeover can tighten your stomach, lift your breasts, and sculpt your figure to revive the natural beauty of your contours.
Pacific Plastic Surgery Group is committed to a positive experience for their patients from the moment they arrive in their San Francisco office.
Dr. Dudas and Dr. Miranda specialize in breast and body contouring procedures. It is their philosophy that natural, subtle changes reveal patient’s true beauty. At Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, we emphasize respect and transparency. Our mission is to rejuvenate the beauty and self-esteem of our patients. Here, we have created an entire set of medical procedures all focused specifically on helping restore a woman’s post-pregnancy body back to her pre-pregnancy physique.

Mommy Makeover Techniques
Motherhood is hard work: you deserve to feel good, inside and out!
Our techniques of doing so include the following combination of plastic surgery procedures:
Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
Tummy tucks are used to remove excess skin and fat deposits that have accumulated in a person’s abdominal area
In post-pregnant women, this is a common occurrence and easily corrected with abdominoplasty surgery which re-tightens the abdominal muscles and restores the waistline.
Once pregnancy has stretched the abdominal skin, it will not re-tighten back to its original tighter contours. Tummy tucks are used to remove excess skin and fat deposits that have accumulated in a person’s abdominal area. In post-pregnant women, this is a common occurrence and easily corrected with abdominoplasty surgery which re-tightens the abdominal muscles and restores the waistline.
While exercise and a balanced diet are healthy habits during and after pregnancy, the flat, toned results of Tummy Tuck are not possible with diet and exercise alone after pregnancy.
An abdominoplasty will correct a sagging, bulging abdominal appearance and restore control of the abdominal muscles. Tummy Tuck slims and sculpts the abdomen into a smoother, tighter contour. The procedure is performed using a single incision. This incision will be carefully located in a position low between the hip bones, where it will be easily-concealed within clothing and swimwear. It may be necessary to reposition the belly button to achieve the most balanced, natural result. Women whose strained abdominal skin and muscles are located beneath their belly buttons may only require a Mini Tummy Tuck. The belly button will not need to be repositioned in these cases.
Patients may resume regular activities within seven to ten days of their Tummy Tuck. Full recovery is made within six to eight weeks.
You will receive personalized recovery instructions prior to your abdominoplasty and return for follow-up appointments throughout your recovery. We are here to answer any questions you have about Tummy Tuck and will be with you every step of the way along your recovery process.
Abdominoplasty’s benefit is practical, as well as aesthetic: the procedure repairs the abdominal muscles, which help support your new, reduced waistline for the long-term!
Some women may experience sagging of the breasts after their pregnancy has been completed and breastfeeding has terminated. Therefore, we have included breast lift surgeries in our Mommy Makeover procedures. Other women may need their breasts reduced to a size more proportional to the rest of their body, in which case we would offer a breast reduction.
Some women may experience sagging of the breasts after their pregnancy due to changes involved in breastfeeding. Therefore, we have included breast lift surgeries in our Mommy Makeover procedures. Other women may need their breasts reduced to a size more proportional to the rest of their body, in which case we would offer a breast reduction.
Breast Lift will correct breast ptosis or sagging of the breast tissue. In both breast lift and breast reduction, breast skin and tissue may be removed to achieve the desired size and lift of the breasts.
The breasts will be repositioned to a higher, more youthful position on the chest. The details of your procedure will reflect the needs of your unique anatomy and your desired results. Your breast lift surgery may be performed using a circular pattern incision, anchor-shaped incision, or keyhole-shaped incision. Sutures may be layered deep within the breast tissue to support the new breast shape. You will work with your surgeon to decide which incision method is right for you.
Most patients are able to resume low-impact activities within a week of their breast surgery.
After pregnancy and/or breast feeding, new moms might notice their breasts have lost a significant amount of volume. In order to restore this volume and fullness, we often recommend a breast augmentation using implants or fat grafting.
After pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, new moms might notice their breasts have lost a significant amount of volume.
In order to restore this volume and fullness, we often recommend a breast augmentation using implants or fat grafting. Some women decide to combine breast lift with breast implants. Implants are a safe, FDA-approved method of adding natural-feeling volume to the breasts. Two types of breast implants are available: silicone or saline. Pacific Plastic Surgery Group offer the entire lines of Mentor®, Natrelle®, and Sientra® implants. We will take the time to listen to your goals and help you find the volume, texture, and implant shape that will deliver your preferred results.
Post-pregnancy, many women suffer from accumulations of fat and / or areas of excessive, sagging skin. Prior to pregnancy and childbirth, neither of these were anywhere to be found, which is why sculpting and removing the fat and skin from these problem areas liposuction is one of our main Mommy Makeover techniques.
Liposuction is a minimally-invasive fat elimination surgery. Dr. Miranda and Dr. Dudas are body sculpting artists who employ modern liposuction techniques to deliver your smoothest, sleekest contours. Liposuction can eliminate fat from almost anywhere on the body. The procedure is performed using a slim cannula, a few tiny incisions, and the assistance of tumescent fluid. Fat removal can be optimized with VASER ultrasound or SmartLipo technology. These technologies not only improve fat reduction, they also produce tighter contours and shorter recoveries.
Most patients are able to return to work within one to two weeks following liposuction.
Liposuction is also the first step of another impressive body contouring treatment: fat transfer. An increasing number of women are turning to fat transfer as a natural way to add flattering, long-lasting volume. Fat transfer is an excellent way to restore the volume that was lost during pregnancy to the breasts, buttocks, or face.
Post-pregnancy and childbirth, you may notice stubborn pockets of fat on your body that seem resistant to diet & exercise. Surgery isn’t an option for everyone, which is why we also offer CoolSculpting; for non-invasive fat reduction. CoolSculpting is a quick, comfortable treatment that freezes fat with the application of cold temperatures over a 30 to 45 minute period. A single CoolSculpting appointment will reduce fat in the treated area by up to 25%!
No surgery, no downtime, just real visible results.
MedSpa Mommy Makeover Rejuvenation
Pregnancy and motherhood can impact more than a woman’s figure: the stress and changes in hormones often reflect themselves in changes in skin tone and texture as well. If you are frustrated by dry, wrinkled, or hyperpigmented skin following your pregnancy, our custom-tailored MedSpa treatments will help. New moms often choose solutions like Microneedling with Autologous Conditioned Plasma, a light chemical peel, or dermal fillers to help them get back to looking and feeling their best! Among these treatments, we also offer Profound RF treatments that will tighten skin and reduce cellulite. Look and feel amazing after being pampered at our MedSpa.
