Mommy Makeover Los Angeles Expert : Dr. Kenneth Hughes


What Is a Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills?

           The mommy makeover in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills may encompass any number of procedures including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and the Brazilian buttlift.   The mommy makeover involves reversing some of the negative consequences of pregnancy.  During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles and abdominal wall expand due to uterine growth and may require repair as well.  Pregnancies typically involve weight gain as well that can have profound effects on the skin of the abdomen and breasts.  Finally, breast feeding due to the size increase from milk engorgement can cause extreme deflation and skin laxity issues, once the breasts return to a more normal size upon cessation of milk production.  The goal of the mommy makeover is to help restore body contours after pregnancy, primarily in regard to the abdomen and breast areas.



         In its most basic sense, the mommy makeover in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills includes a tummy tuck and breast augmentationExpert mommy makeover surgeon Dr. Kenneth Hughes performs these combination surgeries several times a week in his fully accredited surgical center in Los Angeles with dedicated board certified anesthesiologists. Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes performs most of these combination procedures under general anesthesia in 4 hours or fewer.

Dr. Kenneth Hughes, Harvard-trained board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, will achieve your best mommy makeover result. Even if you have not had children, breast and body surgeries may interest you as well.



Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck can be helpful after pregnancy or after massive weight loss. The abdomen is stretched during pregnancy, both the abdominal wall (abdominal muscles and fascia) and the skin. The skin and abdominal wall do not usually return to their pre-pregnancy state. As such, a woman may have varying degrees of loose skin and a variable amount of abdominal wall laxity.

A tummy tuck addresses both the loose skin and the lax abdominal wall as to give a nice, flat youthful contour to the abdomen.  The tummy tuck also creates a more youthful belly button.  Dr. Hughes will also improve the waist to hip ratio with a tummy tuck.   This is completely different from some surgeons who will make the patient look more straight up and down.  The goal is to not only make the stomach flat but the make the waist look contoured.

Do not forget that tummy tuck and is very appropriate for some men as well.  Some men after weight loss can get significant improvement from not only skin removal but from abdominal wall tightening as well (usually due to the visceral fat component stretching the abdominal wall from inside the abdomen).

Liposuction of the waist can frequently supplement the results of the tummy tuck.   The tummy tuck, if done optimally, can certainly create a better abdominal shape and a better waist taper.  However, liposuction of the sides, the lower back, and the bra rolls can create a much sharper contrast and a much smaller waist.  This 360 liposuction or lipo 360 is one of the most commonly requested procedures that Dr. Kenneth Hughes is asked to perform.



The breasts are frequently addressed at the same time as the abdomen in a mommy makeover. Some women as a result of pregnancy and pregnancy related weight gains as well as engorgement from lactation and/or breast feeding suffer a loss of breast tissue and a deflated look.  Breast augmentation adds fullness to the look of the breasts and improves the deflated appearance.  Dr. Hughes, board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, offers breast augmentation with saline, silicone (cohesive gel), and gummy bear (highly cohesive or form stable) implants as well as fat grafting to the breast.  This is the breast augmentation portion of the mommy makeover.  Dr. Kenneth Hughes offers the best breast augmentation options for you for your mommy makeover in Los Angeles.

While breast augmentation can certainly fill a deflated breast, breast implants or breast fat transfer by itself cannot correct the breast that has a lot of droop or ptosis.  When the breasts have a significant amount of droop a breast lift procedure is required.  The breast lift involves removing skin from the breasts and reshaping the breasts to create a more youthful and perky appearance.

Brazilian Buttlift (BBL) as Part of Your Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills


           The Brazilian buttlift or BBL involves liposuction of selected areas and then transfer of that fat to the buttocks and hips to make a dramatic overall improvement in body contour and shape.  Some of these transformations can be amazing, and Dr. Kenneth Hughes has performed thousands of these Brazilian Buttlift procedures.
