About Mommy Makeovers
If you are interested in a mommy makeover, Orange County surgeon, Dr. Ambe, can help you explore this popular cosmetic surgery option. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s body goes through tremendous stress and change in order to give and sustain life for her child. Naturally, these changes result in physical differences of the body from pre-pregnancy to motherhood. Some of these changes, like weight gain, can be reversed through diet and exercise, but many cannot. A mommy makeover procedure can further correct these changes and restore your original form.
A mommy makeover is a combination of several plastic surgery procedures that are completed at the same time. The individual procedures vary depending on the individual patient, but they can include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, abdominoplasty, or liposuction.
What to Expect
Each of these procedures offers a unique benefit to mothers. Through pregnancy and breastfeeding, breasts can naturally lose some of their volume and shape, and they can also have a tendency to sag lower on the chest. Occasionally, a woman with large breasts may experience a re-shaping of the breasts during pregnancy. Also, pregnancy stretches the abdominal skin and can result in increased weight gain in the abdominal area or throughout other regions of the body.
A Newport Beach breast augmentation can offer new volume and a firmer shape. An Orange County breast lift, or mastopexy, can take an augmentation further by repositioning the breast higher on the chest through the removal of excess skin and by tightening the surrounding tissues, resulting in less sagging. If necessary, a Newport Beach breast reduction can correct the changed shape. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, will trim and remove excess abdominal skin, resulting in a tighter appearance around the belly and waistline. Lastly, liposuction can help sculpt the body by removing any excess subcutaneous fat that may have been gained during pregnancy.
Recovering from Surgery
Fortunately, these procedures will be performed simultaneously, allowing you to focus on the most important things by taking care of your body in one session. The combination of procedures will result in more initial discomfort and a longer recovery, but this period will be your sole downtime.

Before & After
Our Client Stories
Turn the Clock Back
After being chosen by Tamra Judge, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, for a breast augmentation in Season 3, Dr. Ambe was chosen once again to perform a facelift – except this time on her mother. Tamra and her mother, Sandra Baker, ultimately chose Dr. Ambe due to his reputation as one of the best facelift surgeons in Newport Beach/Orange County and one that specializes in very natural facelift results. After her incredible results last season, Tamra knew that Dr. Ambe would give her mother the perfect “turn the clock back” look she desired.
