Where will my surgery be performed?

Dr. Kaweski performs Mommy Makeover surgeries on an outpatient basis at the La Mesa Surgery Center, utilizing general anesthesia to ensure the comfort and safety of her patients throughout the procedure.

If I have a tummy tuck, can it repair diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles)?

Yes, a tummy tuck can effectively repair diastasis recti. This procedure is often included in Mommy Makeovers to correct separated abdominal muscles and reduce the bulge in the abdomen, helping to restore a firmer, flatter abdominal profile.

Can I have additional children after my Mommy Makeover surgery?

While having children after a Mommy Makeover is medically safe, Dr. Kaweski advises patients to undergo the procedure once they have finished building their families. This recommendation ensures that future pregnancies do not alter the surgery results.

What is the cost of a Mommy Makeover?

The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies significantly due to the specific procedures performed, the type of breast implants chosen (if applicable), and the number of post-op appointments required. Each patient’s treatment plan is unique, and pricing can also differ by plastic surgeon and geographical location.

What is recovery like?

Recovery from a Mommy Makeover typically requires two to three weeks off work and other duties, including childcare. Patients are advised not to sleep on their stomachs or lift heavy objects during this time. Enlisting help from family, friends, or care providers for household duties and childcare is recommended to aid recovery.
