Reclaiming Your Confidence with Mommy Makeover Surgery

Ready to get your body back in shape after having children or losing a significant amount of weight? A mommy makeover at Austin Face & Body will accomplish this and help you regain your confidence and quality of life.  

What is a mommy makeover?

A "mommy makeover" is a comprehensive approach to body rejuvenation, which often involves a tummy tuck and liposuction to address abdominal and waistline concerns. Additionally, this transformative procedure may include a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction, all tailored to help women regain their pre-pregnancy or pre-weight loss physique and feel confident in their skin once again. The combination of these surgeries can provide not only aesthetic benefits but also boost self-esteem and overall quality of life.

  • Comprehensive Transformation: This all-in-one approach addresses both body and breast concerns, providing efficient and time-saving results.

Am I a candidate for a mommy makeover?

Although it’s called a “mommy makeover”, patients do not have to be a mommy to have this procedure done. While the term does come from the fact the areas affected by a pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding are improved, a mommy makeover is also beneficial to women who have lost a significant amount of weight or whose bodies have changed due to age. 

Candidates for a mommy makeover at Austin Face & Body must be completely recovered from childbearing and nursing, and should be close to their goal body weight. Potential candidates should also note that if they become pregnant after undergoing a mommy makeover, it may un-do the effects of the procedure—so this treatment should only be considered when a woman is finished having children. 

The Mommy Makeover Procedure

Mommy makeover surgery is typically performed with the patient under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and safety throughout the procedure. The specific surgical details are highly individualized, depending on the combination of procedures tailored to your unique needs. These details will be thoroughly discussed and explained during your personal consultation, allowing you to understand the process, expectations, and recovery plan in detail.

Your Mommy Makeover Timeline

A mommy makeover a journey that encompasses several key stages, from the initial consultation to recovery and beyond. Here's an overview of what you can expect during each phase:

Before the Procedure

  • Consultation: The journey begins with an in-depth consultation with your plastic surgeon. This is the time to discuss your goals, concerns, and the specific procedures that will be part of your mommy makeover. You'll work together to create a tailored treatment plan.
  • Preparation: Before the surgery, your surgeon will provide guidelines on pre-operative preparations, including dietary restrictions, medications, and lifestyle adjustments. These are crucial to ensure a safe and successful procedure.

Right After the Procedure:

  • Recovery Room: Immediately after the surgery, you'll spend some time in the recovery room, where medical professionals will monitor your initial recovery and ensure your well-being.
  • Discharge: Once cleared by your medical team, you can return home with a responsible adult to assist you during the first crucial days of recovery.

Weeks Following the Procedure:

  • Initial Recovery: The first week involves rest and limited physical activity. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common but will gradually subside.
  • Resuming Daily Activities: You'll begin to ease back into your daily routine, but strenuous activities are still restricted.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Several post-operative check-ups with your surgeon are scheduled to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure your healing is on track.

Months to Years After the Procedure:

  • Long-Term Results: The final results of your mommy makeover will become more evident as the swelling fully dissipates and incision scars continue to fade over time.
  • Enjoying the Transformation: With restored confidence and a rejuvenated appearance, you'll continue to benefit from the lasting results of your mommy makeover for years to come.

It's important to follow your surgeon's guidance at each stage to optimize your recovery and enjoy the full benefits of your transformed physique.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Because a mommy makeover is a combination of surgeries, it requires a longer recovery period than just one procedure alone. The exact length of your recovery time will depend on what procedures you have done, but the majority of patients need about 10 to 14 days to recover. Patients undergoing a mommy makeover should have someone to help take care of them (and any young children) for about two weeks.
