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.

Reviews

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt and his professional staff. The entire experience was more than I had hoped it would be. From beginning consultation to follow-up visits. Dr. Shortt and his staff are highly recommended for any results you are hoping to achieve. This team is the very best!
