About the Mommy Makeover
Las Vegas, NV plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa regularly works with women who wish to have their pre-pregnancy body back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it often will change the tightness and shape of the body that cannot be reversed with exercise and weight loss alone. With the help of Platinum Plastic Surgery, it is achievable to reclaim a slimmer, smooth physique with the assistance of the mommy makeover performed at Platinum Plastic Surgery. Mommy makeover is an all-encompassing term for several body contouring procedures, including to lift and fill the breasts to a more youthful appearance and to tighten the torso and underlying muscles. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape the stomach and breasts, as well as other areas affected by pregnancy — virtually any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc., can be repaired.
Ideal candidates for body contouring and mommy makeover are those who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, and have tried to get a slimmer look through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgical intervention is recommended to regain their pre-pregnancy figure. If you are past childbearing and are unhappy with the imperfections remaining on your body, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could help you. The overall goal of Dr. Costa is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to living life without additional concern.

"Dr. Costa and his staff are great! I had a very complicated procedure that went perfectly. I am happy with the care and patience with all my questions, even up to time of surgery. Dr. Costa ensured I understood what the procedure entailed, the care he was going to take to maximize results but decrease potential side effects. I am very happy with the results and recommend Dr. Costa's office for plastic surgery."- M.E. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2019
"Incredible Experience!! - I’ve had the luxury of having Dr. Chris Costa as my plastic surgeon. His work is amazing! I have recommended him to family and friends. I will never use anyone else. His staff was professional and accommodating beyond expectation. Thank you so much."- H. / RealSelf / Jul 02, 2019
"10/10 Would Recommend!! - I have a really terrible case of “bat wings” or excess, loose arm skin. I was super insecure about wearing short sleeves or tank tops. I found Dr. Costa online and booked a consultation. The office is clean and all of the staff are super friendly. Dr. Costa made me feel comfortable and really informed me of all of the expectations and what would work best for me. I booked my surgery for a few weeks later. Surgery was quick, went well and I was at home resting on the same day. The office staff keeps in contact and schedules all of your follow up appointments and sends reminders. They were available through phone and text when I had any questions. I’m a few months post-op and everything is totally back to normal and I feel great. Seriously one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself. It’s given me the confidence I needed. Can’t wait to go back and get a few more enhancements!!"- C. / RealSelf / Jan 28, 2021
"Went today for my mommy makeover consultation and I was so glad I came!Andrea, the receptionist was super nice and understanding. I was late for my appointment but she said they’ll wait for me instead of cancelling or rescheduling. And yes, they waited! I was really nervous at first but as soon as I met Dr. Costa, i felt comfortable. He was so gentle and comforting and detailed. He took his time on my consultation making sure we’ll get my desired results. And yes, I was so happy with his plan of treatments and procedure for me. It made me really excited and I made up my mind to go through the procedure at that moment! I felt so safe with DrAcosta. And i can feel in my core that he will really take good care of me and that i’ll be really happy with my procedure’s outcome. And then, i met with Ms. Diane, the clinic’s office manager, and she was awesome too! Explained costs very well and answered all my questions! The extra discounts she gave me or will give me is just an absolute bonus! It’s like talking to my new bff! I am really impressed with Platinum Plastic Surgery. They have the most wonderful staff and of course the best doctor, Dr. Chris Acosta! Now i know why they have the best reviews! And I can’t wait to schedule my procedure! I’m so excited! So, go ahead and schedule your consultation asap! I swear you won’t regret it! My experience from d beginning till the end was super great! I’d do it again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you Dr Costa and your staff! You are all amazing!!!❤️"- M.S. / Google / Feb 05, 2021
The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring surgery, tailored for each woman by plastic surgeon Dr. Costa based on the areas of concern to be corrected. A variety of procedures can be paired together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 5 hours depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital might be necessary. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical skin procedures, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface issues.
What to Expect
This cosmetic body contouring procedure is categorized as an invasive process and can surgically cover a large portion of the body. Once leaving the hospital, you will begin to rest and recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply. The recovery period is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first week or so, and a step-by-step, at-home protocol will be required to help the incisions heal properly. Most patients find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within 2 – 3 weeks. Light exercise can be started at three weeks, and most patients are released to full activity at six weeks. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Platinum Plastic Surgery can be an amazing journey for women, allowing them to love the way they look and feel once again.
