What is Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical procedures to help new mothers regain their pre-pregnancy bodies or even improve on their original body type to achieve the appearance they’ve always desired. While this procedure can be a mixture of multiple surgeries, there are three primary areas that most moms focus on to achieve tighter bodies: Breasts, Stomach, and Stubborn Fat. Some of the more common procedures that are performed in the average Mommy Makeover include:

What’s the First Step?
If you’re interested in getting a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills, the first step is to schedule a consultation. In your initial appointment, Dr. Nikolov will evaluate your health and explain which surgical procedures and techniques are most appropriate for you. He will listen to your expectations and aesthetic goals for your mommy makeover. He will examine your body and describe your best options, including the risks and limitations of each procedure. It’s important to tell Dr. Nikolov if you smoke and if you’re taking any medications, vitamins, or other drugs.
Dr. Nikolov or his patient coordinator will explain the type of anesthesia to be used, the facility where the surgery will be performed, and the costs involved. Because most insurance companies do not consider a mommy makeover to be medically necessary, carriers generally do not cover the cost of this procedure.
Before you leave, Dr. Nikolov will give you instructions to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications. While making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days, if needed.
What to Expect on the Day of Mommy Makeover
When you come into The Nikolov Center for Plastic Surgery for your Mommy Makeover, you will begin by being administered anesthesia. Depending on what was discussed during your consultation with Dr. Nikolov, this will either be intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Once you are properly sedated, your surgery will begin.
During your consultation, Dr. Nikolov will discuss what you should expect on the day of your Mommy Makeover surgery, but for a better understanding of what your surgery will entail, please read the “What to Expect” sections for the following procedures:
Who are the Best Candidates for Mommy Makeover?
The best candidates for a Beverly Hills Mommy Makeover are women who:
- Are you at your ideal body weight
- Are finished with childbearing
- Are in good medical health
- Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
Please inform Dr. Nikolov if you have plans to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight in the future. If you have had previous abdominal surgery, scarring may limit the results of your abdominoplasty or breast surgery.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Once Dr. Nikolov finishes your surgery, your incisions will be covered with a gauze or bandage to prevent infection. Once you are released, you will be able to return home and recover in peace, but you will need a family member or friend available to give you a ride and stay with you for at least the first few hours of recovery. It’s always best to have an adult caretaker available to help you for the first few days of recovery because your recovery time and experience will vary depending on which surgeries you got, but you will be sore and unable to lift anything heavy. If you have any hesitancies about your recovery time, please discuss them with Dr. Nikolov and consider getting your Mommy Makeover at a time when you will need to be less hands-on with your child.
For additional information on how your recovery will be, please look at the aforementioned procedure pages on our website for a better understanding of what it will be like.
