How Much Weight Do You Lose With A Mommy Makeover?
Many patients who undergo a mommy makeover have experienced changes in or struggled with their weight. They often seek out this procedure to correct the damage or changes in their body due to weight fluctuations. Therefore, some patients sometimes still carry some weight when they come in for surgery. Does this mean you cannot have surgery? Will it eliminate all of this weight? How much weight do you lose with a mommy makeover? Let’s answer these questions.
Weight & Mommy Makeover
People who have had children do tend to carry extra weight due to this for various reasons. Hormones, age, genetics, having a C-section, and many other factors all contribute to this extra weight. Due to this, post-baby weight can be especially difficult, if not impossible to lose.
At your mommy makeover consultation, Dr. Jonov will evaluate if you are healthy enough to undergo a mommy makeover surgery. Typically, as long as you are not obese and fairly healthy, you may be a good candidate. That said, it is recommended that patients be between five and twenty-five pounds of their goal weight before surgery.
Why? A mommy makeover is not a weight loss surgery. While it may include procedures that remove fat such as liposuction and a tummy tuck, these procedures do not remove large amounts of fat. Most of the time during any plastic surgery, patients do not lose more than ten pounds during surgery.
Mommy makeover surgery can be a motivator to lose weight–both before and after the procedure. Many patients do not need to lose any or a significant amount of weight before surgery. However, if it is necessary, Dr. Jonov will discuss this with you during your consultation.
Mommy Makeover Surgery
The exact outcome of a mommy makeover depends on the procedures involved. A mommy makeover is an extremely customizable procedure. Traditionally, the surgery is a combination of breast surgery (like breast augmentation) and a tummy procedure (like a tummy tuck). Though, a mommy makeover is not limited to two procedures or to breast and stomach surgeries.
A mommy makeover can include nearly any combination of procedures. However, it usually contains at least one breast and/or tummy surgery. Some of the procedures that can be a part of a mommy makeover are:

The most common areas for laser hair removal include the face, underarms, and legs. However, another area is growing in popularity, the nether regions. Like a Brazilian wax, it is possible to treat pubic hair with laser hair removal. While this is appealing for many women who would love to discontinue shaving or getting waxed down there, many are understandably hesitant by the thought of a high-powered laser down there. One of the frequent questions our master estheticians hear is, “Does Brazilian laser hair removal hurt?”
Laser hair removal isn’t necessarily comfortable. Patients do usually feel some slight discomfort regardless of the treatment area. However, in such a sensitive area, some patients may feel more pain than usual. That said, most patients do not find it more painful than the average Brazilian wax. The bikini area (which can also be treated on its own) tends to hurt less than other areas.
Pain is subjective though, so while one patient may not find the experience overly painful, another may find it more painful than usual. Generally, patients do not find it unbearable. There are also notable benefits to Brazilian laser hair removal in Bellevue such as the permanence of the treatment. It can also be done throughout the summer months when laser treatments usually have to cease. This can make the pain and treatment more bearable.

A mommy makeover plastic surgery is a procedure that addresses the areas of the body that experience changes due to pregnancy and having children. Traditionally, this is the breasts and tummy. However, the procedure can also sometimes include other areas. A common question heard during consultations is, “Does mommy makeover include BBL?”
The answer is that it sometimes can. While most mommy makeover surgeries do not include a BBL, it is possible in some cases for a mommy makeover to include one. Often, this is when it does include a breast or tummy procedure, freeing up surgical time for a Brazilian butt lift. However, depending on the specifics of the procedure, it can sometimes be added to a traditional mommy makeover.
Generally, when Dr. Jonov can combine a BBL with one or more other surgeries, the patient must be in good health, a non-smoker, and understand what their recovery will entail. When combined with a mommy makeover, however, a BBL can achieve great results and completely transform the body’s contours.

Aging affects every person differently. Even though aging often includes the same processes, due to genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle patients will see different changes in facial appearance. For example, the skin loses elasticity and slows collagen production. One patient may see their neck and jowls begin to sag due to this. This is often corrected with a facelift. Another patient may see more sagging in their cheeks and midface. What is the best treatment for sagging cheeks?
The right treatment for sagging cheeks will depend on the factors mentioned above as well as age. For patients under their forties, it is likely that Dr. Jonov will recommend non-surgical treatments such as fillers or a thread lift. If the look of your face is because of excess fat or not due to aging, he may recommend a buccal fat removal or cheek implants.
For patients in their late forties and above, Dr. Jonov may explore options such as midface lift. Also known as a cheek lift, the procedure lifts and repositions descended fat in the cheeks and midface. Occasionally, it may also address extra skin. This is sometimes performed on younger patients based on their anatomy and on a case-by-case basis.
It is worth exploring all of the surgical and non-surgical options to treat sagging cheeks. The best way is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov. Call us at 425-775-3561. You can also reach out online using our Price Simulator™, chat, or contact form.
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects breast sagging and ptosis. In many cases, patients choose to combine a breast lift with breast implants for fuller and perkier breasts. Sometimes, breast lift results can make the breasts look bigger. Due to this, patients occasionally ask, “Do breast lifts require implants?”
The answer is no. Patients who undergo a breast lift do not have to have breast implants placed. A breast lift simply removes extra skin and unnecessary tissue to create a perkier breast. Breast sagging can occur for many reasons including age, nursing, pregnancy, and genetics. This leads many people to seek out breast lift surgery.
Most patients who have a breast lift are good candidates for breast augmentation as well. If patients want breast implants along with a breast lift, the implants can be added through the same incisions as your breast lift. It also forgoes the need for two surgical sessions by combining the two procedures together.
A breast lift and breast augmentation can complement each other spectacularly. The two procedures can create a more youthful breast appearance and restore the breasts to previous fullness and shape.
