Procedures in a Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover procedure can be very intensive but generally focuses on the breasts, abdomen, and buttocks. Some women will undergo various combinations of rejuvenation procedures to augment their new look.

Liposuction in San Diego

Breast Enhancement Procedures

This covers a variety of techniques that alter the size, shape, and feel of the breasts.

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lift


Dr. Marin performs breast lift in La Jolla, San Diego.

Body Contouring Procedures

Reshapes several areas of the body.

  • Liposuction
  • Fat Grafting
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Butt Lift


Dr. Marin offers Botox injection in San Diego.

Non-surgical Procedures

In addition to surgical procedures, we also offer multiple rejuvenation techniques that are non-surgical or minimally invasive.

  • Facial Fillers
  • Skin Care Products ⁠— we use a large array of products from Skinceuticals.

Before & During the Surgery

  • Anesthesia
    A board-certified anesthesiologist from Scripps Memorial will provide general anesthesia. If you are only undergoing minor procedures such as breast lift or liposuction, local anesthesia with sedation is also a choice.
  • Your Team
    Dr. Vincent Marin will be operating. Assisting him will be an experienced Scrub Tech as well as a licensed registered nurse (RN).
  • Surgery
    A typical mommy makeover can take anywhere from 3 – 8 hours to complete. Longer surgeries are a result of the increasing number of procedures and techniques involved. Additional surgeries may be required at a later date to allow your body to heal. A detailed surgical plan will be discussed during your initial consultation.




2 ⁠— 4 hours


Pain, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, implant failure, capsular contracture, incomplete correction


2 ⁠— 3 months for implants to descend to the final position


General or local with sedation


Back to work: 1 ⁠— 2 week
Strenuous activities: 3 ⁠— 6 weeks


Results depend on skin elasticity and quality and the 10-year lifespan of the breast implant. Possible implant replacement only entails a minor procedure.

Recovery & Scars

A mommy makeover is usually an outpatient procedure, but extensive surgery might require an overnight hospital stay. Before you return home, Dr. Marin will provide you with instructions for post-op care to avoid complications. Total recovery time for a mommy makeover varies on the extent of your procedures. There are certain things to keep in mind, however, to make a recovery as smooth as possible:

  • Wear your compression garments for as long as Dr. Marin recommends it
  • Always pat your sutures dry, and do not rub or irritate the incisions.
  • Take your prescribed painkillers to control the pain and swelling.
  • Get plenty of rest but walk at regular intervals to enhance circulation in the legs.

For the first few days, have a family member or friend on hand to help with any chores or physical activities. You may return to work after 1 ⁠— 2 weeks, provided that you are off oral pain medication, it is no longer painful to wear a seatbelt, and you can handle the commute to work. Light activities may resume after 2 ⁠— 3 weeks.

You may go back to your normal lifestyle once the swelling subsides, which can take anywhere from 4 – 6 weeks. Scars will also begin to lighten and continue to improve until they eventually become barely visible or easily concealable at 10 ⁠— 12 months.

Your New Look After Mommy Makeover

Your final look will show in 3 ⁠— 6 months, depending on the procedures you underwent. If you maintain excellent post-op care, scars will be easily hidden in the creases of your body or underneath your swimwear. Schedule a consultation now to get the body you’ve always wanted!
