90 Day Fiancé star Loren Brovarnik revealed on Tuesday that she has undergone a ‘natural’ mommy makeover.
The reality TV star, 35 — who shares three kids with husband Alexei Brovarnik — said the makeover included a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a fat transfer to her breasts.
Loren took to her Instagram to share a snap with her surgeon, Dr. Dev Vibhakar, prior to the procedure, and the next day updated fans on her recovery via her Stories, with a number of photos and videos of her in bandages.
‘The day has finally come, I’m getting a natural mommy makeover. This is something I’ve wanted for a very long time and did a lot of research on, but it’s a little different,’ she wrote on her initial post.
‘I was referred to by a childhood friend because he specializes in doing it naturally. I have abdominal diastasis which is uncomfortable for me, so I’ve opted to do a tummy tuck to bring my muscles back together.’

Recovery: The reality TV star, 35 – who shares three kids with husband Alexei Brovarnik – said the makeover included a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a fat transfer to her breasts
‘We know I’ve been very open about wanting to enhance my breasts, so I am doing a 360 lipo and fat transfer to my boobs. Doing it a more natural approach is the best way to go. Just like everything else, I’m beyond excited to share this journey with you.’
Abdominal diastasis is a condition where the abdominal muscles separate during and after pregnancy, according to Cleveland Clinic.
It appeared that by ‘natural’, Loren meant that she was not getting breast implants, but instead opting for a fat transfer.
Later on her Stories the star — who gave birth to her third child in September of 2022 — posted a snap as she recovered in bed with her torso, head, and arms all bandaged up.
Despite the fact that she was in recovery the star appeared in good spirits as she gave the camera a thumbs up and a smile.
‘Thank you EVERYONE for your kind words and well wishes for a smooth recovery!!! I couldn’t be happier with @Drdevvdo and @peaceloveplasticsurgery – truly AMAZING!!!!’
‘I’ve always loved sharing my journeys with you, so stayed tuned!’ she added.
Another photo showed Loren standing in a blue hospital gown with compressions socks and white bandages on her head as she posed with her surgical coordinator, who she called ‘my angel.’
Loren then posted a video of herself one day after the surgery, with her doctor and her husband, as she gushed about the surgeon.

The star then returned back to her bed and shared another clip praising her entire surgical team. ‘They made this experience like so much easier,’ she stated.
The last snap showed a face selfie, as the impressed reality star wrote, ‘Just wow.’
Many of her 1.4 million followers took umbrage with Loren’s use of the word ‘natural’, with one asking, ‘Ummm…What’s natural about this?!’
‘An operation is never natural!’ another added.
‘Haha whatever makes you feel better I guess. Nothing “natural” about it but ok,’ someone else chimed in.
‘I think everyone should do whatever they feel like doing with their body, but can we please stop calling any part of this natural? If nature intended for that fat to be in your breasts, it would be there, adding, ‘Body modification is totally cool, but my tattoo is not natural and neither are any of these permanent cosmetic procedures.’
Loren has been planning her mommy makeover even before the arrival of her third child, saying she wanted ‘head-to-toe’ work done in an interview with Us Weekly.
Loren also told the publication that sharing her postpartum journey on social media has affected her confidence ‘a million percent.’

However, she also saw a silver lining: ‘There’s also the positive to it because not everybody bounces back like some people, and that’s OK. I want to show people that women go through these changes [when they] grow a human inside [them] so it takes time for your body to heal.’
Loren and Alexei welcomed their first child, a son named Shai, in April 2020. Their second son named Asher, arrived in August 2021.
He was followed by their baby girl, Ariel Raya, in September 2022.
The couple were first introduced to viewers on the third season of the popular TLC show 90 Day Fiancé in 2015. The show follows couples who have applied for a K-1 visa and have 90 days to marry each other.
