The Mommy Makeover
A Mommy Makeover can include a variety of enhancement options that work to restore areas of the body affected by pregnancy. During and after pregnancy, many women experience:
- Sagginess and extra skin in the breasts
- Excess skin and fat in the midsection
- Areas of extra fat that are resistant to diet and exercise
These issues and more can all be addressed with a Mommy Makeover from our Los Angeles-area plastic surgeon. A doctor, as well as a mother, Dr. Christine Petti understands the changes that many women undergo after pregnancy, and she can help you restore your body with results that look natural and beautiful!

Mommy Makeover Procedures
Mommy Makeover procedures often involve a combination of aesthetic enhancement options that can be performed in tandem, or over a series of appointments with Dr. Christine Petti. At your initial consultation at Palos Verdes Plastic Surgery Medical Center, Dr. Petti will discuss your goals with you and, together, you will decide which options will be the best to meet your needs. Dr. Petti will explain all aspects of the procedures with you, including details on risks and benefits, and recovery after the procedure.
Here are just some of the options you can choose from to include in a Mommy Makeover:
Smartlipo Triplex™ Liposuction
Smartlipo Triplex™ is a minimal-downtime liposuction technique that not only removes pockets of fat from virtually anywhere on the body, but also tightens the skin for a smooth appearance. Smartlipo Triplex™ uses fiber optic laser technology, which allows for extremely small incisions and virtually invisible scarring after the procedure. Dr. Petti is one of the first plastic surgeons on the West Coast to use this revolutionary method of liposuction.

After pregnancy, many women experience sagginess and extra skin in the breasts. Dr. Christine Petti can address this with a breast lift as part of a Mommy Makeover. By removing excess skin and redraping the skin of the breasts, Dr. Petti can tighten the area and lift the breasts to a more desirable position, giving you a more youthful, ’perkier’ bustline.

Breast Augmentation with Implants
In addition to a breast lift, Dr. Petti can place silicone or saline implants inside the breasts to add fullness to the bustline. Dr. Petti is extremely skilled and experienced with breast enhancement procedures, tailoring procedures to suit your goals. Breast augmentation with implants can rejuvenate and enlarge your breasts after pregnancy with beautiful, natural-looking results.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Of course, the most obvious area affected by pregnancy is the mid-section, and for many people, it is particularly difficult to lose the appearance of extra fat in this area even with rigorous diet and exercise. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) allows Dr. Petti to tighten the underlying abdominal muscles that are often pulled apart during pregnancy. The extra skin is removed, and the remainder is pulled taut to give you a flatter, more fit-looking stomach.

Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
BOTOX® Cosmetic and an array of injectable dermal fillers such as collagen, JUVEDERM™, and Restylane® can provide significant rejuvenation to facial signs of exhaustion, stress, and aging. Dr. Christine Petti can also plump up the lips and add volume to facial features for new moms who want to enhance the contours of the face.
