Mommy Makeover in Houston, TX
What Is Mommy Makeover?
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women are interested to restore their bodies to their pre-pregnancy shape through cosmetic procedures, including plastic surgery.
A combination of procedures a woman chooses to undergo is referred to as Mommy Makeover and usually includes a breast enhancement procedure to rejuvenate the breasts and an abdominal contouring procedure to tone the stomach and waistline.
This combination of procedures performed all at once helps to minimize the cost and recovery time. Many women in Houston choose to combine breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction along with abdominoplasty, also known as “tummy tuck,” and liposuction.
Very commonly, women want to add other surgical and nonsurgical procedures, including labiaplasty and vaginoplasty, with their mommy makeover. For nonsurgical treatment, Ultra Femme 360 is a painless procedure that provides vaginal rejuvenation with no downtime.
The majority of patients who choose to undergo a mommy makeover surgery are mothers looking to restore their firm and youthful body contour after they finish having children.
However, any woman may choose to undergo this combination of procedures to refresh their appearance, even if they never had children and don’t plan to have any. Many women also choose mommy makeover procedures to reverse the signs of aging or following weight loss, to help lift and tighten sagging breasts and tummies and rejuvenate their figure.
Unique and Personalized Makeover
Plastic surgeon Dr. Bachilo will discuss your individual aesthetic goals for your mommy makeover with you. She will try to find the affordable mommy makeover solution that will still be uniquely customized specifically to your needs and body type: for slim, average, and plus size patients. During your consultation, Dr. Bachilo will assess your body type, medical history, and lifestyle, and will recommend the most appropriate combination of procedures to tighten and rejuvenate your body after pregnancy or weight loss. Finally, if you are not a good candidate for a mommy makeover, Dr. Bachilo may recommend another type of plastic surgery or non-surgical procedure that will better suit your goals.
After pregnancy women are often left with stretch marks, a thicker waistline, sagging skin in the belly and midsection, and lax abdominal muscles, as well as sagging and deflated breasts.
Mommy makeover procedures address all of these cosmetic concerns, restoring firmer and fuller breasts and a slimmer and shapelier waistline with a firm belly, thus producing an overall more youthful and more defined body shape.
What Are the Benefits of Mommy Makeover Combination of Surgeries?
The benefit of combining multiple procedures as in Mommy Makeover all-in-one surgery is that you will undergo a single administration of anesthesia and will only have one recovery period while improving multiple areas of your body all at once. Rather than scheduling a breast augmentation or lift during one operation followed by a tummy tuck in another, a candidate for a mommy makeover surgery can consolidate these appointments, procedures, and recovery processes into one single plastic surgery procedure.
While longer anesthesia exposure time slightly increases your risks associated with these procedures, our experienced anesthesiologist and board-certified plastic surgeon make certain that you are safe during these elective procedures and your overall operative time does not exceed six hours.
