Considering A Mommy Makeover? What You Really Need To Know

Following pregnancy and childbirth, many women experience excess or sagging skin in their stomach or breasts impacting their appearance, self-image and self-esteem. While time, diet and exercise can make a significant difference for some women, the reality is that it doesn’t work for many leaving them feeling unsatisfied with their bodies and appearance. With a mommy makeover, many women have enjoyed a restored body from the effects of having children.

What Is Included In A Mommy Makeover?

Often people assume that a mommy makeover is a single surgical procedure. However, a mommy makeover actually includes a number of surgeries that are specifically aimed at giving mothers the body they desire. The exact surgeries to be included in the package will largely depend on the individual needs and desires of a patient and their situation. Typically, surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction are included in a mommy makeover. Depending on each woman’s body, a plastic surgeon will recommend the ideal combination of procedures to help them achieve the body shape and contours they desire.

At Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Michael Whetstone conducts a thorough consultation in which he will evaluate body, skin, bone structure, and muscle tone along with needs and desires in order to determine need and eligibility of the mommy makeover procedures. Dr. Whetstone will carefully listen to your concerns and wishes and then recommend the ideal procedures for you.


Prior to surgery, Dr. Whetstone will thoroughly review your medical history in order to be sure that there is anything regarding your health that could prevent you from being a candidate for a mommy makeover surgical procedure. Dr. Whetstone will provide you with a detailed plan outlining steps to take and what to avoid prior to surgery so that your body is best prepared.


Post surgery, you will likely feel some pain and discomfort in the operated regions. Recovery timeline and instructions will vary depending on the types of surgeries you undergo. Dr. Whetstone will again provide you with detailed information on what to expect, what to do and what to avoid. Be sure to follow post-operative instructions carefully and diligently in order to afford yourself the best opportunity for a successful mommy makeover and recovery.


After a mommy makeover surgery, depending on the individualized procedures, the majority of women find that:

– Excess skin around their abdomen is reduced and tightened significantly
– Breasts are better shaped, filled or lifted
– Stubborn fat is removed

As long as you have reasonable and realistic expectations, you will surely feel renewed confidence and self-image along with a restored body shape and contour.
