Mommy Makeover La Mesa and San Diego

After having children, you may want to rejuvenate areas of your body that pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging have affected. You may also have other aesthetic goals: physical enhancements that you’ve put off for years and are ready to achieve for yourself.

Known as Dr. Mommy Makeover™, Dr. Susan Kaweski supports San Diego and La Mesa patients with procedures that renew their body and improve their life. She offers over 25 years of experience in plastic surgery procedures, has been published in numerous national and international medical journals, and is the author of Dr. Mommy Makeover: A Mom’s Guide to Beauty After Childbirth.

Care for Women by Women

Aesthetic Arts Institute is an all-women team with Dr. Kaweski as our director and founder. We believe that this gives us special insight into our patients’ concerns, goals, and needs.

Aesthetic procedures are very personal, and it’s extremely important to have an open dialogue with your caregiver. When you’re describing the physical changes your body has undergone and detailing what you’d like to accomplish, it may be easier for you to talk with someone with a personal understanding of the female form and the challenges that follow childbirth.

We support your mommy makeover by giving you the time you need to get to know Dr. Kaweski, to ask questions about procedures, and to become comfortable with treatment. Your confidence in our work makes for a better experience and better outcome.


The Possibilities with Mommy Makeover

Some San Diego and La Mesa patients schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Kaweski when they have specific procedures in mind. Other women have a general desire to restore youthfulness, firmness, and femininity to their features.

During your visit, Dr. Kaweski will talk with you about the variety of options for your mommy makeover. Common procedures include:

  • Breast augmentation: Breastfeeding, aging, and gravity can leave a woman with a deflated breast appearance. Augmentation can help you reshape and regain fullness in your breasts.
  • Breast lift: Breastfeeding, aging and gravity can also result in not only a deflated appearance, but droopy in nature. A breast lift can restore contour and lift the nipple areola complex to a more natural location.
  • Tummy tuck: After a woman’s body changes in size during pregnancy, she may be left with excess skin around her abdomen as well as diminished support from the abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck can flatten the abdomen and restore a tight body contour.
  • Liposuction: Kaweski uses advanced technology to target and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in a minimally invasive procedure.

Beyond these traditional areas of a mommy makeover, Dr. Kaweski can tailor a treatment plan to meet your goals. This can include procedures like skin rejuvenation, facelift, and cellulite reduction.


What to Expect with Mommy Makeover

San Diego-area patients have their procedure at La Mesa Surgery Center under general anesthesia. The length of your surgery will depend on what your individual mommy makeover includes; however, you can expect to go home the same day.

Dr. Kaweski may recommend a single surgery that includes all of your procedures or multiple surgical sessions depending on your health and the treatments you are receiving. She can also create a surgical plan based on the time you have available for your recovery so that your downtime is a fit for your home life or career.

With a mommy makeover, Dr. Kaweski’s approach is to provide natural-looking rejuvenation. During surgery, she spends time revising the details of features to create the most attractive outcome possible. As her patient, you can expect results that achieve your goals in physical beauty and help restore your post-baby body.
