About the Mommy Makeover
Dr. Mark Schoemann is a board-certified, fellowship-trained plastic surgeon who frequently consults with women who desire to get their pre-pregnancy shape back. Even though childbirth is an exciting and amazing experience for a woman, it usually does alter the size and shape of various body parts — and can leave one feeling frustrated. The great news is that it's possible to get a youthful, slimmer, tighter figure thanks to the help of a mommy makeover from Schoemann Plastic Surgery in La Jolla, CA. Though the mommy makeover is typically a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (such as the tummy), any area affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or the birthing process can be corrected. In addition, nonsurgical procedures can be used to correct surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin, from the quick fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy.
The right candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are individuals who have completed pregnancy and childbirth and have worked to attain a toned, slimmer appearance through diet and exercise with little result. For so many new moms, surgery is necessary to regain their pre-pregnancy shape. If you are finished having children but you are displeased with the side effects left behind, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be a great option for you. The goal of Dr. Schoemann is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure so you can resume life without worry.

"I had a mommy makeover with Dr. Schoeman on 1-9-17 and I'm so pleased with the results. The entire staff aright down to the anesthesiologist were caring and kind. Dr. Schoemann really listens and is such a compassionate person in addition to being a perfectionist. I had interviewed other surgeons prior to choosing Dr. Schoemann but I always felt like I was dealing with a used car salesman or a production facility. Not Dr. Schoemann and his staff! They genuinely care about their patients and about what they do. I have never felt rushed or like my concerns were belittled or ignored. I highly recommend Dr. Schoemann if you want a plastic surgeon who makes you feel good, is extremely competent and caring and is really an artist when it comes to his profession."- J.J. / Google / Jul 26, 2017

"Dr. Schoemann and his staff are the most genuine, caring and compassionate people I have ever dealt with in the medical industry. I had a Mommy Makeover on the 9th of January 2017 and at just over 2 weeks post-op I'm very pleased with the results. Dr. Schoemann is not just a technically adept surgeon but truly an artist and a perfectionist. I am so please that I chose him for this surgery. I had interviewed numerous other surgeons but always felt like they were trying to sell... me something or being pushy. I never felt any pressure from Dr. Schoemann or his staff and they let me set the pace for my decision to have the surgery and supported me all the way through. The office and Dr. Schoemann have been super responsive to after hours calls and any concerns I've had post surgery and I have felt so well cared for and valued as a person and as a patient. I want to note that this is coming from someone who had 1) an 8 hour surgery due to the extent of repair needed 2) is 56 and not super thin 3) tends to have anxiety issues around medical procedures. If I have had a fantastic experience yours can only be at least as good if not better. I can't recommend this entire practice enough. Thank so much Dr. Schoemann and all of the staff who have made this transformation possible for me. I am so looking forward to a summer for the first time in many years where I can be active and not have excess belly fat getting in my way. You are all the best!"- J.J. / Facebook / Jan 25, 2017
"Simply the Best in the San Diego Area - La Jolla, CA - The entire staff at Brucker & Schoemann are caring and kind. Dr. Schoeman is amazing and really listens to your concerns and what your goals are with your surgery. I have had to call numerous times after hours and always got a call back within 15 minutes from Dr. Schoemann. I'm really pleased with my Mommy Makeover so far at just over two weeks post surgery. Dr. Schoemann is a..."- W. / RealSelf / Jan 25, 2017
A mommy makeover is a custom treatment, tailored for patients by Dr. Schoemann based on the specific body areas to be reshaped. Many procedures can be performed together — the most common treatments are a breast lift (with or without implants), abdominoplasty, and liposuction. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia, taking 3 – 7 hours based on the number of treatments. Some patients also choose to undergo vaginal rejuvenation to address vaginal laxity caused by childbirth. This can be completed in conjunction with the rest of your procedures at the time of your mommy makeover. An overnight stay in our facility's surgical suite could be required, depending on the procedures performed. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial lines and reduce surface irregularities.
What to Expect
The mommy makeover is considered an invasive treatment and can affect a large portion of the body. After a recovery period in our surgical suite or the hospital, you will begin your recovery period at home with rest and proper aftercare. Recovering from this surgery is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be hard the first couple of weeks, and a carefully followed, home treatment protocol will be provided to ensure the incisions and sutures heal properly. The majority of women find the healing phase can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to return to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should be halted for approximately two months. In the end, this surgery at Schoemann Plastic Surgery can provide you with a renewed self-esteem and gorgeous results.
