What is a Mommy Makeover?

You love your children dearly. But will you ever see your pre-pregnancy body again? Many women lament the physical changes that pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can leave behind – stretched skin and torn muscles that don’t necessarily rebound no matter how much you diet and exercise. A Mommy Makeover can help restore the firm, lifted breasts and toned, feminine contours you fondly remember.  

And after all you’ve done to bear and care for your kids, isn’t it time to care for yourself? At Beverly Hills Sunset Surgery Center International Dubai, we say yes!

A Mommy Makeover is all about you because it is not a one-size-fits-all surgery but a series of cosmetic surgical procedures you and your surgeon select to precisely address your personal aesthetic concerns and goals. Popular procedures women choose for their Mommy Makeover include:

  • Lifting of sagging or “deflated” looking breasts
  • Reduction and tightening of enlarged areolas
  • Repair and tightening of damaged abdominal muscles
  • Removal of stretched and sagging abdominal skin and stretch marks
  • Elimination of stubborn belly fat  

A Mommy Makeover is performed as outpatient surgery, so you can go home the same day. Details of the surgery itself, the amount of downtime required and specific requirements for your recovery will all depend on which procedures you undergo. In general, though, you can expect to be off work and/or away from all but light activities for 2 or 3 weeks. Incisions are always placed strategically to ensure minimal, least visible scarring. After all, you’ll want to show off your rejuvenated contours!

Who is a good candidate?

Almost any woman could be a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover. However, for long-lasting results you should wait until you have finished having children and no longer nursing.

What could a Mommy Makeover do for you?

The best way to understand the sort of results you might expect is to review before and after photos of former patients like you.   

It’s the surgeon who determines your results

When your surgeon is Dr. Whitney Burrell, you know you’re in the best of hands. Literally. Dr. Burrell brings exceptional medical credentials and surgical skill to her patients, along with a comfortable, caring demeanor. You can talk to her woman-to-woman, knowing she understands your concerns and that she has dedicated her career to helping women look and feel their best. She even specializes in breast reconstruction and body contouring.

You don’t even have to travel to her office in Southern California, because Dr. Burrell performs Mommy Makeovers here at Beverly Hills Sunset Surgery Center International in City Walk, Dubai.  

Even better than before

A Mommy Makeover can do more than repair damage caused by pregnancy and childbirth and bring back your pre-pregnancy figure. For example, along with lifting your breasts, you might want to augment them. Or reduce them. Or you might want Dr. Burrell to use her body sculpting expertise to reduce fat, smooth and re-contour your thighs, arms or back. You can also add nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedures.

Adding procedures will add more time to the surgery itself, and it may alter your recovery depending on what work you have done. But it will be faster and more affordable than multiple, separate procedures. You can be “new and improved” in a single surgery.

That said, this is definitely something you should discuss with Dr. Burrell during your consultation. She will listen to all your concerns, hear about your ultimate aesthetic goals, and ask about your medical history. Then together you can choose the most appropriate procedures to design a just-for-you Mommy Makeover.


So, Mom, isn’t it time for your makeover?

Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Whitney Burrell or one of our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at BHSSCI, is the first step toward perkier breasts and a slimmer, tighter torso. You can see your pre-pregnancy body again!
