Mommy makeovers are a specially curated package of restorative procedures designed to help you get back to your pre-pregnancy appearance. This body sculpting procedure commonly includes a combination of breast enhancements, breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction and possibly fat transfer. The combination of these procedures is extremely powerful to help patients restore their body. The specific procedures that are combined in a mommy makeover are tailored to each person’s individual aesthetic goal.
Mommy makeovers are designed to help you regain your confidence and look your very best. During your consultation with our team, we will carefully assess your needs and recommend the best treatments for you. Our surgeons can help you decide if a Mommy Makeover in San Antonio is right for you.
Impact of Mommy Makeovers on the Face and Breasts
For moms looking to reduce fine lines or aging through non-surgical enhancements, our team may advise a facelift, the application of facial fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or micro fat grafting.
For more significant results on the face, surgical procedures may be the best option. Our surgeons may recommend a blepharoplasty to target excess upper lid skin, bags under the eyes, or deeper wrinkles around the eye area.
In addition to pregnancy, breastfeeding can cause significant physical and physiological changes to the breasts. You may notice a decline in volume, a saggy appearance, or the development of stretch marks on the breast. Our office offers breast lifts, augmentation, and reduction to combat breast volume loss, sagging, or weight and volume gain. These mommy makeover surgeries in San Antonio can rejuvenate your look and give you new confidence in your body.
How Can a Mommy Makeover Enhance Your Abdomen?
Many San Antonio moms specifically consider a makeover to enhance the abdominal area. The stomach is typically most affected by pregnancy. Pregnancy stretches the abdominal region, resulting in loose skin and stretch marks following delivery. As a result, pregnancy weight gain may persist in this region. In addition, C-section scarring can also affect the appearance of the abdominal area.
At Austin Plastic Surgeon, we want you to be close to your goal weight prior to having your mommy makeover. If you are having difficulty losing some of the additional weight from pregnancy our weight loss program may help you get to your goal weight prior to surgery. The weight loss program typically includes one of the skinny shot programs to help decrease your appetite and calories which in turn helps lead to a decrease in weight. It is important to remember that a mommy makeover surgery is not a weight loss procedure. It is a body contouring procedure.
To address specific cosmetic concerns in the abdominal area, you might consider a tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck. This procedure will remove excess skin and residual fat to improve the appearance of stretch marks and pregnancy-associated scarring. During the tummy tuck we also address the muscles that have typically been stretched out during pregnancy. The internal corset that tightens and shapes the abdominal muscles enhances the overall appearance of the tummy tuck. Our drainless tummy tuck procedures enhance the recovery of the procedure to help our patients return to their busy lives as quickly as possible.
Total body sculpting in a mommy makeover typically includes liposuction of the back and love-handles. This liposculpting of the back and flanks will help our patients achieve an hour-glass figure. It further restores the aesthetic appearance that an individual once had prior to pregnancy.
For our patients that are looking to accentuate their curves or restore their buttock we will also include fat transfer as part of our mommy makeover. This fat transfer can be used to enhance the hip dips and buttock. This will increase the natural curves of an individual and give them a more athletic appearance.
