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” refers to a treatment that combines multiple procedures to achieve a more sculpted and toned body for a woman after having children or losing excess weight. It is a highly effective and popular surgery, and typically includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and either a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction to restore a woman’s body.

Benefits of a mommy makeover

One of the best things about a mommy makeover is that patients only need to have one surgery and one recovery period, yet they get the benefits of multiple treatments all at once. 

Mommy makeovers are also highly customizable and will be tailored to each patient’s exact needs. Every woman’s body changes in different ways, and therefore a tailored procedure is required.

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. 

Your consultation

During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss a variety of things with you, including your medical history, your personal aesthetic goals, and any questions or concerns you may have. You will also be taken step-by-step through how the surgery will go, as well as recovery and what to expect. 

What is the surgery like?

Mommy makeover surgery is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The specific surgical details will vary from patient to patient, depending on the exact procedures that you will be undergoing. This can be further discussed during your consultation. 

Mommy Makeover Recovery and Results

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.
