About the Mommy Makeover

Dallas, Texas plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo frequently meets with women who want their pre-pregnancy figure back. Even though childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it can alter the look, shape, and size of various body parts — and can leave one feeling frustrated. The great news is that it is possible to once again attain a tighter, slimmer figure with the help of the mommy makeover surgery performed at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center. This surgery uses a blend of fat removal and skin tightening to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body — basically any area affected by weight gain or nursing can be addressed. In addition, nonsurgical treatments can be used to smooth surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, from the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin during pregnancy.

If you are unsatisfied with your current figure and want to feel more confident and self-assured, then a mommy makeover might be what you need. Dr. George A. Toledo, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, will share a great deal of his expertise and 30 years of cosmetic experience with these types of surgical transformations.

A mommy makeover may include but is not limited to breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction in targeted areas. All of these cosmetic procedures will provide you with a new and restored pre-pregnancy body.

Ideal Candidates

The right candidates for this surgery are women who have gone through childbearing and have worked to achieve a tighter figure through a clean diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is needed to get their pre-pregnancy body. If you have completed childbearing, but you are frustrated with the effects left behind, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be perfect for you. The goal of Dr. Toledo is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy shape so you can resume life without feeling self-conscious.

The mommy makeover is one of the most well-known cosmetic surgeries that often combines several procedures, depending upon the patient. These procedures may include:

Liposuction
This procedure targets and eliminates small fat deposits that are usually located in the thighs, stomach, hips, and love handles.

Breast Contouring
Breast contouring includes several types of procedures for the breasts, such as enlargement, which results in fuller-looking breasts. The breast lift or mastopexy elevates and tightens the breasts. If the breasts are too large, breast reductions may also be performed to have a more portioned breast size to your body and to take some strain off of the back and shoulders.

Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes unwanted fatty tissue and any sagging skin from the abdomen. The abdomen then appears much flatter and firmer even when sitting down. The procedure also tightens the underlying muscles and repairs hernias, if needed.

Procedure Preparations

There can be no eating or drinking 12 hours before the scheduled surgery. It is advised that you are no longer breastfeeding before you embark on this surgery. In addition, smokers must stop at least two weeks before surgery since nicotine and caffeine can lengthen and inhibit the healing process, and it can also exponentially increase complications from the procedures. Arrange for a ride after surgery since you will not be in a position to drive yourself home. It is suggested to plan on taking a week off from work or your normal routine to allow your body plenty of time to properly heal. It is imperative to keep moving to avoid blood clots but only within the guidelines of Dr. Toledo.

Surgical Technique

A mommy makeover is a unique treatment tailored for women by Dr. Toledo based on the specific body areas to be addressed. Many procedures can be considered together, depending on your desired results. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, taking 2-3 hours based upon the number of treatments. In addition, an overnight stay may be needed. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical methods, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial lines and reduce surface imperfections.

What to Expect

After a recovery period in the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. This phase is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be hard the first few days, and a thorough, at-home care protocol will be needed to make sure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most women find the healing phase can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to resume a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should wait for about two months. In the end, this surgery at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center can be life changing for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
In your initial consultation with Dr. Toledo, he will listen to your needs and concerns before examining your body. After this, he can make recommendations on what should be a part of your mommy makeover. Most women include breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) along with liposuction and a body lift.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body so nonsurgical treatments are usually not enough to get the results you want. During your consultation, Dr. Toledo can discuss both surgical and nonsurgical options. Based on your needs and goals, he will let you know if treatments, like SkinTyte nonsurgical skin tightening, may be an option for you.

Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new shape, it does include some scarring. Dr. Toledo will make every effort possible to create clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be concealed with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery instructions, Dr. Toledo or a member of his team will go over scar care so your incisions heal properly.

What if I get pregnant again?
In a perfect world, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery can be performed to refresh your results.
