Mommy Makeover in Dallas, TX

While new mothers welcome the significant changes and responsibilities that come with their new parental roles, many do not anticipate or want the changes that too often take place in their bodies. Stretch marks, excess skin, and deflated breasts are just a few of the common aftereffects of the childbearing process, and no amount of diet or exercise is enough to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy figure.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeover surgery is a customizable combination of breast and body contouring treatments that help sculpt and enhance the body after pregnancy or significant weight loss. Though the exact procedures may vary depending on what a patient prefers, in whatever combination, a Mommy Makeover surgery can provide a slimmer, firmer, and more youthful silhouette that more closely resembles your pre-baby body.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

Full, Round Breasts

The milk ducts swell during pregnancy, causing the breasts to gain significant volume. That, combined with the stress of breastfeeding and the rapid decrease in fullness, often leaves the breasts deflated, shapeless, and flat. Many Mommy Makeovers include breast augmentation using implants to enhance breast size and restore breast fullness, firmness, and shape.

Perky, Lifted Breasts

After pregnancy and nursing, the breasts can lose their youthful perkiness and become saggy and shapeless. The Mommy Makeover procedure often includes a breast lift to correct breast shape and restore a youthful height and appearance to the breasts. Breast lift surgery can be performed alone or combined with augmentation or reduction to adjust the breasts’ volume.

A Firm, Toned Abdomen

Pregnancy transforms the abdominal area, often resulting in loose and sagging skin, stubborn fat, flaccid abdominal muscles, and stretch marks. For many, these symptoms develop in a lower abdominal “pooch.” The Mommy Makeover procedure typically includes abdominoplasty, which restores a flatter and firmer tummy by correcting muscle laxity and removing excess fat, skin, and many stretch marks.

Slimmer Body Contours

Over the course of pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women’s bodies accumulate fat deposits in various areas. After childbirth, some pockets of stubborn fat cannot be eliminated with diet or exercise. The Mommy Makeover procedure can incorporate liposuction to remove fat from trouble areas all over the body and restore slender body contours.

A Youthful Figure

The changes that motherhood can bring to the body include stubborn fat, deflated and sagging breasts, a perpetual belly pooch, and more. These appearances in no way resemble the woman’s formerly youthful, sexy figure. The Mommy Makeover is customized to include the precise procedures each patient needs to restore youthful contours, firm body tone, and an attractive figure.

Am I A Candidate For a Mommy Makeover?

Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover are women who are nonsmokers, in overall good health, and have realistic expectations for their results. Those considering a Mommy Makeover in Dallas should also be done having children (or not planning to have children in the next five years), as pregnancy will likely reverse your results.

You will need to wait at least six months after giving birth before undergoing a Mommy Makeover, and ideally, up to a year. This gives you ample time to lose your pregnancy weight in a healthy way and allows your body to recover after the rigors of pregnancy and birth. You should also be at a stable body weight that you’ve maintained for several months before your procedure. For breastfeeding mothers, you will need to wait between three and six months from the time you stopped lactating to allow your breasts to settle into shape before undergoing your Mommy Makeover.

While many patients are often mothers, motherhood is not a required prerequisite for the Mommy Makeover. Many women undergo this procedure to reverse changes that have occurred due to weight loss and/or aging.

What Are My Mommy Makeover Options?

The unique nature of the Mommy Makeover is that it is truly a personal makeover. Patients work with Dr. Morales to decide which procedures will best achieve their desired results. Because every woman has different concerns, no two Mommy Makeovers look the same; however, the Mommy Makeover most often includes a combination of breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and liposuction.


  • Also called “augmentation mammoplasty”
  • Uses saline or silicone implants to enhance breast fullness, shape, and size
  • Corrects volume loss that is commonly associated with pregnancy and nursing
  • Includes many customizable options regarding implant size, incision location, and implant placement
  • Also called “mastopexy”
  • Elevates sagging, drooping tissues
  • Ideal for women who have sagging breast skin due to breast volume loss
  • Eliminates sagging skin or excess tissue
  • Relocates the nipples and repositions the breasts to produce a more youthful appearance
  • Improves breast shape and contour


  • Also called “abdominoplasty”
  • Can be performed as either a full tummy tuck (which addresses both the upper and lower abdomen) or a mini tummy tuck (which addresses the lower abdomen only)
  • Corrects excess skin, stubborn fat, and stretched abdominal muscles
  • Trims away excess skin and removes stubborn fat
  • Removes stretch marks if they appear on the skin that is removed during surgery
  • Reveals a slender, smooth, sculpted, and shapely midsection
  • Ideal for women seeking to reduce stubborn deposits of fat on particular areas of the body
  • Through a few small incisions, the fat is liquefied and then suctioned from the body
  • Can be used to target fat on many areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, back, and arms
  • Does not correct sagging skin, but can be paired with a tummy tuck or other body contouring procedures as part of the Mommy Makeover to produce the best results

How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?

The details of the Mommy Makeover procedure will vary depending on which procedures are included. You will be given general anesthesia for the duration of the surgery. Dr. Morales will perform the operation as determined during your consultation, incorporating the appropriate surgical techniques for your breast procedure(s), tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. More details on what to expect for your specific Mommy Makeover will be provided after your consultation. Depending on the number and type of procedures included, your Mommy Makeover procedure may require an overnight stay.

What Can I Expect From My Mommy Makeover Recovery?

The recovery time needed after a Mommy Makeover will depend on the extent of the procedures and the patient’s ability to heal. There are several steps you can take to help reduce recovery time that Dr. Morales will review with you during your consultation, including ensuring that you are resting adequately and closely following his post-operative instructions.

Patients should plan for someone to drive them home and care for them for the first 48 hours after surgery. You will experience some minor pain after your Mommy Makeover once the anesthesia has worn off. However, keep in mind that any discomfort you experience is temporary and can be easily managed with prescription or over-the-counter pain relievers. In some cases, you may have a long-term nerve block device as part of your recovery to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Using ice packs and cold compresses can also help alleviate discomfort.

Swelling and bruising will be apparent for two to four weeks, and Dr. Morales will likely have you wear compression garments to facilitate recovery, reduce swelling, and improve your results. Patients should be able to return to work and other daily activities after 10 to 14 days and typically resume exercising after six weeks or when cleared by Dr. Morales. Once recovery is complete, patients can enjoy their new and improved post-pregnancy body for years to come.

What Can I Expect From My Mommy Makeover Results?

You will likely be able to see some results of your Mommy Makeover immediately after surgery—a flatter tummy and perkier, rounder breasts will be evident. However, swelling will obscure much of your results as you heal. It typically takes about three months for the majority of the swelling to subside and for your breasts to settle into their new position, at which time you will be able to see more dramatic changes to your body contour. Your final results may take up to a year to be fully visible.

While the total extent of your results will vary depending on the surgeries chosen, your body contour prior to surgery, and how well you maintain your results, most patients experience significant benefits to their breast and body contour.

Your breasts will be more youthful, your abdomen will be flat and toned, and your body contours will be slimmer. The results can last for years if you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

The length of your Mommy Makeover surgery depends on which procedures you’re getting, along with the number of procedures you’re getting. In general, most Mommy Makeovers take between three and five hours.

Sometimes, Dr. Morales will suggest separating the procedures if it is best for the patient. However, in many cases, patients can undergo a full Mommy Makeover with combined procedures in one sitting. There are indisputable advantages to doing it this way. By combining the procedures together, patients will have a lower cost. A Mommy Makeover will also allow for less time off from work or away from family. Your timeline from the initial consultation to the final results will be much shorter, meaning you will be able to enjoy your results much sooner.

Any major surgery presents the risk of side effects. For a Mommy Makeover, these may include infection, bleeding, reactions to the anesthesia, scarring, implant complications, and asymmetrical or unsatisfactory results, among others. Dr. Morales can go over the risks with you in detail and ease any concerns. Patients typically conclude that the established benefits of surgery far outweigh the potential side effects.

Scarring is likely to develop wherever the surgeon places the incisions. Steps can be taken to minimize scarring by utilizing certain techniques, but for most Mommy Makeover patients, scarring is an unavoidable side effect of the procedure. Scarring may vary depending on your surgical techniques and your body’s ability to heal. Scars typically fade with time and can be minimized by using silicone scar sheeting and reducing sun exposure.

While not a requirement, Dr. Morales suggests that patients postpone their Mommy Makeover until after they have had their last child. While there are no physical complications to getting pregnant or carrying a child, an additional pregnancy will impact or negate the quality of your Mommy Makeover results. You can expect to experience many of the same body and breast contour changes that you did in your earlier pregnancies.

While called a Mommy Makeover, being a mother is not a prerequisite for the surgery. This combination of plastic surgeries was coined “Mommy Makeover” because they address the areas of the body most affected by pregnancy and childbirth; however, any woman can benefit from these, and they are particularly useful after significant or massive weight loss.

A Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic enhancement. It is not a weight loss procedure or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Ideal Mommy Makeover results are seen by patients close to their ideal weight and committed to maintaining their results through diet and exercise. While patients can expect to lose a few pounds, this often comes from the reduction in excess skin.

Many women develop stretch marks on the abdomen and breasts following pregnancy. While a Mommy Makeover can reduce some of these, since many stretch marks appear on the lower abdomen where excess skin is removed, it cannot eliminate all stretch marks. Fortunately, many women discover that their stretch marks are not as noticeable when on tighter, firmer contours.

The cost of a Mommy Makeover in Dallas, Texas, varies depending on the procedures included, implant type, surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, and other related factors. However, because the various techniques are performed in a single surgery (thus only requiring one round of anesthesia and one day of a facility fee), the cost will be lower than if the patient were to get their chosen procedures at separate times. A detailed price quote will be provided during your consultation.

Insurance does not typically cover a Mommy Makeover, but it is worth talking to your insurance provider to see if they will cover all or some of the surgery. Because most of the procedures are considered cosmetic, insurance will likely not cover them. However, in cases such as excess skin causing recurring skin health issues that can be alleviated by a tummy tuck, or a breast reduction to address chronic back and neck pain, insurance may cover those portions of the procedure.
