Children bring immense joy into the life of their mothers. This emotionally profound experience can, however, result in a body you no longer recognize or feel comfortable in. Diet and exercise alone are often inadequate to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state, and the accompanying feelings of unattractiveness and undesirability can make the months following the birth of your child trying on a very personal level.
The feelings of joy alongside diminished self-esteem after childbirth can be overwhelming and confusing for many women. At The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito, Dr. Patino is able to work with new mothers to help them regain their figure and look as beautiful outside as their child makes them feel inside.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
A mommy makeover typically includes two or more of the following procedures:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Vaginal rejuvenation
It’s not uncommon to see some patients lose up to 20 or 30 pounds following their mommy makeovers. That being said, a mommy makeover or liposuction should not be seen as a weight-loss procedure or weight loss alternative. Dr. Patino and his team recommend leading a healthy and active lifestyle to maintain the results of your mommy makeover.
The mommy makeover itself is not very painful as Dr. Patino will use anesthesia throughout the procedure to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your surgery. Following your mommy makeover procedure, you will likely experience swelling, bruising, and tenderness around your treated areas. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work and mild exercise within two to three weeks of surgery.
While there is no specific weight you have to be in order to be eligible for a mommy makeover, it is typically recommended you be within about 25lbs of your ideal weight. This is because the results of your mommy makeover may be disrupted with excess weight gain or weight loss following surgery.
While insurance doesn’t typically cover cosmetic surgery procedures, we typically recommend patients contact their health insurance providers to ask about their coverage for a mommy makeover. In the event your health insurance does not cover part or all of your procedure, Dr. Patino and his practice are happy to offer flexible financing options that allow you to pay for your procedure at your own pace.
