Mommy Makeover


A new mother expects that her baby will cry, diapers will need to be changed, and she will likely be exhausted the majority of the time. What many new mothers do not expect is the significant changes that motherhood can bring to the body. Stretch marks, excess skin, and deflated breasts are just a few of the most common effects of pregnancy that, unfortunately, no diet or exercise routine can correct. For women who want to get their pre-pregnancy body back, Dr. David Morales offers the Mommy Makeover at his Dallas practice. The Mommy Makeover is a customizable combination of procedures that provide a firmer, more contoured, and more youthful silhouette.

What Are Your Goals?


Full, Round Breasts


The effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding can leave the breasts in poor aesthetic condition and, in many cases, deflated, shapeless, and flat. The Mommy Makeover procedure can include breast augmentation and insert breast 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.

A Firm, Toned Abdomen


Pregnancy ravages the abdominal area, often leaving it streaked with stretch marks, draped with sagging skin, cushioned with stubborn fat, and distended with flaccid abdominal muscles. 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.

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 they uniquely need to help them achieve their desired results. While your procedure may include more or less than the following procedures, the Mommy Makeover most often includes a combination of breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and liposuction.

Breast
Augmentation

  • Also called "augmentation mammoplasty"
  • Uses 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"
  • 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

Tummy
Tuck

  • 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 eliminate stubborn deposits of fat on particular areas of the body
  • Through a few small incisions, the fat is liquefied and then vacuum 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

Frequently Asked Questions


Those considering the Mommy Makeover should be done having children or at least not plan to have children in the next five years, as pregnancy will reverse the results. Patients should be done breastfeeding and should have a stable body weight that they’ve maintained for several months before the procedure. It is also important to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. While most patients are typically 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.
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.
