For many mothers, they dream of returning to their body to the state it once was in before pregnancy. Pregnancy tends to stretch out skin around the tummy and add or take away volume from the breasts. If any of these issues are an area of concern for you, a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills may be the right step for you! Ask Dr. Rahban about combination procedures like the tummy tuck and breast augmentation if you are considering both procedures.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. With the use of silicone implants, small or inadequate breasts are transformed to a beautiful size and shape, perfect for each patient’s body. For new mothers who may have suffered volume loss, this is a very welcome procedure.Learn more
A tummy tuck is the keystone of any Mommy Makeover. When excess skin has accumulated in the abdomen, it can appear loose and unflattering. A tummy tuck removes this excess skin in addition to tightening underlying muscle layers. This serves to restore a smooth, toned appearance in the tummy.Learn more
Before & After Results
Mommy Makeover consultation
Your mommy makeover consultation should be done by your plastic surgeon and not by his staff, such as his coordinator. In many cases, patients are offered free consultations, but you must understand that often means you’ll get a hurried consult. As a point of reference, Dr. Rahban on average spends up to an hour with each patient, reviewing not only what the patient came in for, but also explaining all the nuances such as the risks and alternatives to what that patient has requested.
During your consultation, Dr. Rahban covers several crucial points. Firstly, he gathers data regarding your personal cosmetic objectives. Second, after an examination, Dr. Rahban defines the nuances of your anatomy and its limitations with regard to your mommy makeover.
Next, he lays out your options, including incision/approach options, implant types, tummy tuck options, and other factors involved in a mommy makeover. Finally, he will discuss what you can expect from your procedure, both in terms of the cosmetic result, as well as the physical and mental aspects.
As an extension of this, Dr. Rahban also reviews what patients should not expect from surgery. He is well known for telling his patients the truth and establishing a healthy level of expectation. Most patient dissatisfaction is related to inaccurate understanding and expectation of their surgery. Dr. Rahban deals in full disclosure to prevent this from occurring.
Finally, in the interest of helping his patients fully understand the procedure, Dr. Rahban will take this opportunity to review all potential risks. While some risks are quite unlikely, he still wants his patients to be aware of the potential downsides of a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. All surgeries come with risks. Therefore, he believes the only time to engage in surgery is if the benefits far outweigh the risks. If you will only have a mild improvement, Dr. Rahban will most definitely recommend you do not undergo the procedure.
During a consultation, Dr. Rahban has one primary purpose—total patient education. He wants each patient to fully understand the nuances of mommy makeover surgery, as well as every risk and exactly how the procedure applies to them, allowing them to make the best decision for themselves. With his honest, candid approach, Dr. Rahban brings a new level of care to the complicated and confusing world of plastic surgery.
