Mommy Makeover Temecula
It doesn’t seem fair, but one of life’s greatest joys, the carrying and birthing of your precious children, can wreak havoc on your body. You may have seen women who bounce back perfectly after childbirth. But if you are not one of them, you can take action to fix the sagging, bulging, drooping aftereffects of your little bundles of bliss.
Dr. Filip, Dr. Eichenberg and Dr. Ford are skilled in performing complete Mommy Makeovers as well as revising previous surgeries. They utilize all of the latest advances in cosmetic surgery including preoperative planning with VECTRA 3D imaging, the safest anesthesia, short-scar breast lift techniques, rapid-recovery tummy tuck techniques, power-assisted liposuction, modern effective scar treatments, and the newest “gummy bear” and responsive gel implants.

What exactly is a Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is not a new type of surgery. It’s a custom combination of procedures designed to bring you close to your pre-pregnancy body. These usually include:
- tummy tuck
- breast lift
- breast augmentation
Not all women need every procedure. A skilled surgeon will recommend for you only what you need to address the areas that bother you the most. The point is to allow you to enjoy the great breast shape and taut stomach that you had B.C. (Before Children).
Who should get a Mommy Makeover?
Maybe you know that your body needs improvement. You have recently finished having children and you are done with breastfeeding. Maybe it’s been decades since you felt comfortable in your body and you are ready to accept the realization that no amount of dieting and exercising will turn you into the taut and toned goddess that is deep inside you. If this sounds true for you, then you have already covered the first step toward your transformation.
What can I expect during my consultation?
During your consultation you will collaborate with your surgeon to explore the details of your surgery. You will discuss options such as:
- Tummy tuck techniques (Mini, Standard, Extended)
- Breast lift styles and scar patterns (donut, lollipop, anchor)
- Modern Scar treatment (gels, strips)
- Breast implant types (saline, silicone, cohesive gel, responsive gel)
- Liposuction technology (standard, power, laser, ultrasound)
Don’t worry about finalizing all of the decisions right away. You aren’t alone. You can relax during your conversation with the doctors. They understand your issues, have dealt with them before, and can help you draw realistic expectations. They will explain all of the possibilities of state-of-the-art abdominal and breast surgery.
What is the surgery like?
Each Mommy Makeover is customized according to your needs and wants. It can take between two and six hours. Most can be performed at Renuance Cosmetic Surgical Center or a private hospital if you prefer. A team of expert nurses will support your comfort and ease of mind through the entire experience.

What is the recovery like?
With a modern Mommy Makeover, the scars are smaller, but a lot of work is done on the inside. You might need a week to be off pain medicine and able to drive. You’ll need to keep house work duties to a minimum. After two weeks, most patients can return to work a desk or lift up to 20 pounds. After about six weeks you will be able to do heavy labor or go back to the gym with no restrictions. Your recovery time will depend on the extent of work you’ve had done and also on your overall health. Your surgeon will advise you at every follow up appointment on getting back to your specific desired activities.
What is the cost?

- Breast lift combined with an implant, $7,000 – 10,000

Will surgery be worth it?
Only you can judge whether the outcome will be worth the cost of time and money. Imagine having that saggy belly become taut and trim. Visualize yourself with a beautiful breast profile. Think of the freedom to wear fun, trendy clothing that expresses your own vitality. An attractive and fit body is a joy worth celebrating! Your surgeon will give you an honest estimate of the outcomes that you can expect as well as the limitations of plastic surgery.
