Why Dr. Applebaum?

Children are a wonderful addition to your life, but the impacts that they have on a woman’s body are often less than ideal. Between excess skin on the stomach from carrying a child, sagging or drooping breasts from breastfeeding, and other changes that result from motherhood, many women are left feeling less than their best postpartum. Dr. Applebaum has perfected the Beverly Hills Mommy Makeover, a combination of plastic surgery procedures The Mommy Makeover is one of the most popular combination plastic surgery techniques designed to counteract the physical effects of childbearing. Childbearing affects each woman’s body differently, so Dr. Applebaum customizes each procedure to the patient and designs the treatment plan to create a complete transformation that will make you feel like you are back in your pre-pregnancy body or an even better version.

Because pregnancy impacts the breast and abdomen the most from a physical standpoint, the Mommy Makeover focuses primarily on these areas. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, women’s breasts may increase in size by a full cup size or more, but after breastfeeding, the breasts often lose volume and start to sag. The skin and underlying central rectus muscles on the abdomen stretch out during pregnancy leading to a noticeable fullness and loss of tone.  Each Mommy Makeover is customized based on a patient’s specific needs, but common components include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift, with or without Implant
  • Breast Reduction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Circumferential Abdominoplasty
  • Liposuction

When should I consider a Mommy Makeover?

Maintaining a youthful appearance isn’t just about looking and feeling your best. In many industries, remaining competitive with younger employees in the workforce requires people to look the part. As a result, facelifts are growing in popularity, with 22 percent more facelifts being performed today than in previous years. Dr. Applebaum has been using sophisticated techniques to perform facial cosmetic surgery for nearly thirty years, offering patients the most natural, graceful results possible. Facelifts can address common signs of aging, including excess skin and sagging tissue, by gently lifting the face and neck with scars that are invisible when fully healed. Dr. Applebaum uses the most surgically advanced techniques in combination with laser technology to remove years of wear and tear, stress, and sun damage to reveal a younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated version of each patient.  Dr. Applebaum will never create a face lift result that looks windswept or an over-operated, tight looking face.

Testimonial

This review should’ve been written years ago! I have seen Dr. Applebaum a number of times and he is truly an artist in the field of plastic surgery! His skill is the most important, but his manner is a close second. He is so kind & so skilled! He also will not perform unnecessary procedures, which in BH is practically unheard of!!!! He’s simply the best

MOMMY MAKEOVER PROCEDURE FAQs

The Mommy Makeover is a significant operation that requires recovery time, but the amount of recovery time needed will depend on the procedures that are performed. As a general rule, most patients will be sore, bruised, and swollen for about two weeks.  You’ll need help performing routine chores in the days immediately following surgery, so be sure to enlist the help of a family member or friend. You will not be able to lift objects over ten pounds, including babies and children,  for at least a few weeks. Most of the severe swelling will subside within a few weeks after surgery, but final results may not appear for six months to a year.

The components of a Mommy Makeover vary from person to person, so there is a great deal of variability in terms of which patients are suited to which procedures and specific techniques. However, in general, the best candidates for a Mommy Makeover are:

  • Women who are finished having children;
  • Patients with a specific body issue that has not responded favorably to diet and exercise;
  • Patients with tummies that have loose or extra skin that folds over when you sit down and also those patient with spread of the mid-line rectus muscle.
  • Patients with drooping or sagging breasts with a loss of volume; 
  • Patients with a muffin top,  excess skin, or fat;
  • Patients who are nonsmokers.

 

Dr. Applebaum understands that many women want to regain their pre-baby bodies as quickly as possible. While the right time to have a Mommy Makeover is different for everyone, Dr. Applebaum has found that patients will receive the best results from the procedure if they allow plenty of time to breastfeed, wean their babies, and recover from the pregnancy process and are certain in their decision not to have any more children prior to undergoing a Mommy Makeover. Because the recovery from a Mommy Makeover can be lengthy, patients should keep in mind that they will not be able to do any heavy lifting (objects over ten pounds, including your babies and children) for at least 3-6  weeks after the procedures. Therefore, patients will need to be sure that they will have help from family or friends in the weeks following the procedure before committing to the surgery.

During your consultation,  Dr. Applebaum will evaluate your personal anatomic profile, goals and expectations, and other medical issues. Each patient’s needs and bodies are different, and there’s no “right way” to do a Mommy Makeover that suits everyone. Based on your conversation, Dr. Applebaum will make recommendations about the types of procedures that might help you look and feel your best as part of a Mommy Makeover. Dr. Applebaum will spend time with you to review all of the treatment options available that can boost your self esteem and give you self confidence  whether you are wearing a dress or a swimsuit.
