Mommy Makeover

Consultations offered at our two convenient locations in San Diego and Carlsbad

Having a baby is one of the most unforgettably wonderful experiences a woman can have. However, pregnancy and the subsequent birthing process can leave changes to your body you may want to forget!

Gone are the days of settling for post-baby flab and blunted curves. With a mommy makeover procedure, reclaim the figure you had before the trials of pregnancy.

Our Approach

mommy-makeover-300x236Our mommy makeover process includes an abundant collection of options to ensure you receive the right treatment for you. In addition, we do all of these procedures under “Awake Anesthesia” that is much safer than general anesthesia or “twilight anesthesia”, because our number one concern is with your safety. We have no “package procedure” that is applied universally to every patient. Instead, our mommy makeover at Clinique Liposculpture provides customized procedures that are tailor-made for each individual woman. There are many options, many of which can be done during the same day that specifically address your areas of concern.

One of the first to be trained as a liposuction surgeon in the United States, Dr. William J. Seare has more than 30 years of experience and has performed over 15,000 procedures.

The most popular areas Dr. Seare’s moms prefer to concentrate on are the tummy, breasts, hips and thighs.

Less-than-curvy hips and undesirable changes to your breasts may have you yearning for your youthful curves. “The Language of the Universe is Beauty and it Speaks in Curves” is Dr. Seare’s own quote in his consultation room.

Abdominal “Around the World” Lift

One of the most popular procedures performed by Dr. Seare is a signature treatment that he personally developed. The Abdominal “Around the World” microlipo and accompanying mini-tummy tuck with a lateral extension produces a very low, thin scar and greatly reduced recovery time and expense of the standard tummy tuck. With the full abdominal torso “Around the World,” Dr. Seare is able to create and deliver such an incredible skin tightening while producing pleasing hour-glass curves. To get these amazing results, Dr. Seare removes up to 90% of the fat with micro liposuction that is gentler and much more complete than other standard liposculpture procedures.

It is innovations like this that make Dr. Seare the premier destination for women considering their very own, custom designed mommy makeover.

Hyperbaric Treatment

For more than 40 years, doctors have used hyperbaric treatment (HBOT) to enhance healing for diabetic ulcers and other poorly healing wounds, anoxic brain injuries, and after invasive surgical procedures. HBOT became somewhat infamous by Michael Jackson’s personal HBOT chamber, but he was initially prescribed this after his widespread body burns sustained while filming his Pepsi commercial, where the fireworks malfunctioned. Professional sports teams offer in locker room HBOT to get their highly paid athletes back to performing sooner. As part of his board certification in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Seare learned “sports medicine” whose major role is to return the athlete to sports with the least residual impairment and the quickest. Dr. Seare personally also saw the advantages of HBOT during his two years working with the Salt Lake Wound Care Center, where their large multi-place chamber and two-mono chambers successfully treated thousands of patients, including recovering cosmetic patients, where it was shown to have many advantages. It then became obvious to him to employ this modality to return his cosmetic patients to their normal routine quicker and with the most normal healing.

To learn more about hyperbaric treatment after invasive aesthetic plastic surgery procedures, contact our team at Clinique Liposculpture.

During hyperbaric treatment, you are exposed to pressurized oxygen that becomes saturated within the water part of the blood, called the plasma. When blood vessels are injured, oxygen transfer to the tissues supplied by those tissues becomes limited and the tissues become deprived of oxygen. The watery plasma does not need blood vessels to trickle through the tissues. Instead, it oxygenates them, the tissues to heal, rather than scar. We have found specifically that hyperbaric oxygen treatments can help you recover more quickly from our procedures, especially lipo, while it also decreases pain, swelling, and draining. We have also found that there are fewer irregularities in our patient’s results when we provide them with HBOT. In order to see these benefits, we treat our patients the day of surgery, and then for four more days for a 1 ½ hour treatment.

Recovery

While a mommy makeover will have you looking and feeling like your younger self, you are still a mom with motherly duties. With Dr. Seare’s vast experience, investment in technology, and taking the time to perform the procedure right, you will have the best chance to be back to your family in the least amount of a time as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?

Any woman who is in good overall health and has fully recovered from their childbearing is a good candidate for a mommy makeover.

When is a good time for me to receive a mommy makeover?

When you have fully recuperated from the birthing process and achieved a stable weight. Patients who are interested in breast surgery and are still breastfeeding should wait until they are finished breastfeeding.

Can I continue to have children after my mommy makeover?

If you are planning on having more kids in the future, it is normally suggested you hold off on your mommy makeover until you are done having children. However, Dr. Seare has found that when the abdominal torso “Around the World” procedure is done either before pregnancies or after pregnancies, there will be no new stretch marks.

What will prepare me for my operation?

The foundation of preparation starts with a consultation with Dr. Seare. A comprehensive understanding of why you desire the procedure in the first place is key before undergoing your mommy makeover. Smoking is detrimental to the healing process, so patients should be free of nicotine for 2 months before and after surgery. Aspirin or other NSAIDs such as Motrin, Advil or Naprosyn, fish oil, and vitamin E all thin the blood and should be avoided for up to two weeks before surgery.

What can I expect after my mommy makeover?

It may take some time for your results to become totally visible because of swelling. Some post-operative pain is expected, and Dr. Seare provides medications to reduce the pain and swelling.

How long will the results last?

Assuming you maintain a healthy weight and do not have another pregnancy, the results of a mommy makeover can be permanent.

The Cost

Since the majority of health insurance policies do not consider aesthetic surgery procedures as medically necessary, they typically do not extend any benefits for mommy makeovers. In an effort to make aesthetic surgery procedures as affordable and accessible as possible to everyone, Clinique Sculpture offers CareCredit financing, MasterCard, AMEX and Visa. Typically, for our military and public servants, and selectively on a case by case basis and for 50% of the cost of your surgical procedures, we may offer in-office financing.
