What is a Mommy Makeover?

Dallas, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz frequently meets with women who desire to get their pre-pregnancy physique back. While childbirth is a miraculous moment for a woman, it usually alters the tightness and shape of various body parts and could leave some women feeling frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's possible to reclaim a tighter, slimmer figure with the help of the mommy makeover. The mommy makeover procedure uses a blend of fat removal and skin tightening to target the breasts, stomach, buttocks, and thighs. In fact, virtually any body part affected by weight gain or nursing can be corrected with a mommy makeover.

Can I Get a Mommy Makeover?

Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth and have tried to attain a slimmer look through a clean diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgical intervention is necessary to reclaim a woman's pre-pregnancy figure. If you are past childbearing and are frustrated with the effects remaining on your body, such as deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could help you. The goal of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hanz is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy body so you can resume life without worry.

How Does a Mommy Makeover Work?

The mommy makeover is a body contouring surgery tailored for each woman based on the areas of concern to be reshaped. Many procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia, taking 3 – 7 hours based upon the complexity. In addition, a day-long stay at the hospital may be needed. Dr. Hanz will discuss those specifics with you while creating your mommy makeover plan.

What Can I Expect After My Mommy Makeover?

Once leaving the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. Recovering from this surgery is generally a lengthy process. Standing upright will be difficult the first few days, and a carefully followed at-home treatment protocol will be required to make sure the incisions heal properly. Most women should expect the healing process to last about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, you should be able to resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks and should wait to exercise for about two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure can be life-changing for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.

Frequently Asked Questions about Mommy Makeovers

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary, depending on what you are including in your surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Hanz will develop a treatment plan, then he will be able to discuss possible costs. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery accepts many payment options, and we can help you find low-interest medical financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Hanz, he will understand your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. After this, he will make recommendations on what to include in your mommy makeover plan. Typically, women select breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) with a tummy tuck and liposuction.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body so nonsurgical treatments usually aren't enough to produce the results you want. In your consultation, Dr. Hanz will discuss both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will tell you what he feels you would benefit from best based on his years of experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover gives you a beautiful new figure, it does include surgical scars. Dr. Hanz will create clean, small incisions, which he will make in places they can be covered with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your post-surgical instructions, Dr. Hanz or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your sutures heal and fade properly.

What if I get pregnant again?
In a perfect world, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so the surgical results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk of changing if you got pregnant again. If you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery may be performed to refresh your results.
