How to Get a Great Mommy Makeover and Look Like a Celebrity

by | Mommy Makeover, Plastic Surgery, Tummy Tuck

How do celebrities look so great post-pregnancy and what surgeries are they getting to look this way?

I was answering questions in Realself recently, when I came across this question and I thought I would share my response. Some celebrities look amazing after pregnancy… as though they never had a baby at all. Several things contribute to this:

One, they won the genetic lottery, which is why they are celebrities in the first place. Second, they have lots of money and time (this means they have personal chefs that cook delicious and nutritious food and personal trainers for every workout to get them fit… wouldn’t that be great if we could afford that)!

However, there is no “secret” to plastic surgery that only celebrities are getting, other than they can afford to go to very reputable surgeons. That is a good thing for you, and others who are looking for celebrity plastic surgery results. As long as you find a great surgeon, you should expect a great outcome.

There are a few important points to consider with a Mommy Makeover, that you have to make sure of before proceeding with this surgery:

  • Make sure that you are close to your ideal and stable body weight… a weight that you can maintain for years to come.
  • Choose your surgeon wisely. Look at reviews, speak to friends or your GP. Meet more than one and make sure they will provide you excellent care. That means beautiful results but also great care if you have any questions or concerns (before AND AFTER surgery).
  • Make sure they can deliver a celebrity plastic surgery result. For a tummy tuck that means placing the scar so low that even a skimpy bikini or underwear will cover it. It also means creating a new belly button that looks natural. This is by far the most poorly done part of a tummy tuck by many surgeons. Unfortunately, it is the part that will prevent you from wearing a bikini without people recognizing that you had surgery. MAKE SURE YOU LIKE YOUR SURGEON’S BELLY BUTTON! I cannot stress this enough.
  • For breasts, they should look youthful and sexy… not fake. This means taking the time to pick the perfect implant. It requires work on your part and time with your surgeon. You cannot pick an implant in a rush. Your surgeon should take time to help you choose what is best for you. It means trialling different implants during surgery to get the perfect breast. This takes time. Celebrities pay their surgeons a lot. They expect perfection and not to have their surgery rushed. Make sure that your surgeon will take the time to get you the ideal result, not just a good enough one.
  • Finally, some people have more challenging breasts to make look beautiful than others. For these patients, choosing any old surgeon may or may not give you a great result. Go to someone that does a lot of breast surgery. Ideally someone that does both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. There is no question that the skills I use to make beautiful breast reconstructions allow me to provide more pleasing cosmetic breast results. Such things as a combination of an implant and fat grafting is an example. Many surgeons do not have this experience… only those that do both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. AGAIN, CHOOSE YOUR SURGEON WISELY.

Testimonials

All in all I can not say enough good things about my experience with both Dr. Shortt and his staff

Dr Short t was my surgeon for breast reduction, tummy tuck, bra-line back lift and panniculectomy. I was at ease upon our first meeting. I felt he genuinely was on my side and interested in my well being. Although the surgeries I have undergone have been major , the pain was surprisingly minor. I have had excellent recoveries and shockingly minimal scaring. I could not be more satisfied with having been his patient. I did some research about plastic surgery and costs were in line with others. All in all I can not say enough good things about my experience with both Dr. Shortt and his staff

I had a bump on my thumb removed by Dr Shortt a few years ago.

I had a bump on my thumb removed by Dr Shortt a few years ago. It was e third time I’d had it removed, as it kept growing back, but since Dr Shortt removed it, it hasn’t returned!

I’m very pleased with the results of my explant surgery.

Dr Shortt was recommended to me for my explant surgery. I was informed he was the best surgeon for the job and that I would be very happy with the results.
We met on a couple of occasions before the surgery and discussed the options of new implants, fat grafting or just an explant. He was courteous, respectful and very knowledgeable.
He respected my decision to just have the explant surgery and didn’t try to sell me on other procedures. He is all about what’s best for his patients. When I had my pre-op at the hospital, the intake nurse couldn’t say enough wonderful things about him and his skills. That solidified it for me.
I’m very pleased with the results of my explant surgery. It was a unique case in that the implants had completely liquified. They were done 8 years ago by another recommended surgeon in Burlington, not Dr Shortt himself. It seems they were just defective.
Dr. Shortt noted that he had never seen any implants come out in that condition. I appreciate that he is following up with the manufacturer to inform them of the situation.
if you are choosing implants, please do your research and educate yourself and if you choose to have them done, Dr. Shortt is your guy.

Dr. Shortt is a true professional, with an amazing bedside manner.

Recently I had Dr Shortt remove a large lump from the back of my leg. His genuinely friendly manner immediately put me at ease.
In the hospital, he explained how the procedure was going to work, which made me feel comfortable. The actual procedure took less than 5 minutes, with no pain. I was completely relaxed, knowing I was in good hands. Dr. Shortt is a true professional, with an amazing bedside manner. I’d trust him to do absolutely any surgical procedure and would feel confident that the outcome would be very successful.

Huge Breasts Be Gone!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour:) You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making this a great experience!

He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Shortt performed breast reduction/tummy tuck surgery and I am very happy with the results. He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations. I’m a 64 yr. old woman who has lived with shoulder and back pain for years. I decided to have a breast reduction in the hope of easing this discomfort and improving my quality of life in retirement. I was able to discuss questions and concerns easily with Dr. Shortt. He has a quiet, kind manner , complemented by a good sense of humour. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt to my family and friends. The office staff are also very professional, friendly and helpful.

Breast Reconstruction at 55 and a New Lease on Life!!

I went to Dr. Shortt for breast reduction in 2015 and things went sideways when they found an early form of breast cancer (DCIS). It hadn’t shown up on the mammogram 6 months earlier. Dr. Rodger delivered the news, and was gentle and frank about my choices. I had been thrilled and pleasantly surprised with the breast reduction. I was equally happy about what followed after the cancer news; no chemo or radiation required: just a series of surgeries starting with a unilateral mastectomy, DIEP Flap surgery for breast reconstruction, nipple reconstruction and scar remediation, all ending with a nipple tattoo by one of his expert colleagues. I’ve never been so well cared for in my life. Dr. Shortt and his teams, both at the office and in the OR, formed a circle of care that kept me comfortable, confident and happy.
Dr. Shortt has fully embraced social media, which translates into access to tons of information through his blogs, links about procedures (i.e. DIEP flap surgery), and the ability to ask him questions remembered after appointments. He’s a straight shooter and a healer with a quick wit and a world of personal experience. I can’t recommend him enough!

Feel and look better than ever before.
