Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a collection of surgical procedures that allow you to recover your pre-childbirth body. Pregnancy and childbirth take a massive toll on your body, leading to excessive skin laxity, unwanted fat deposits, and the loss of muscle definition. Regular exercise and a good diet can only go so far. A mommy makeover in Dallas includes a collection of procedures that remove excess skin tissues, reduce fat deposits, tighten muscles, and improves body contours.

What is Mommy Makeover?

Depending on your unique goals, your mommy makeover may include breast procedures (augmentation or lift), thigh lift, arm lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, etc. Since pregnancy primarily affects your breast, body, and hips, mommy makeover procedures usually focus on these areas. The primary benefit of a mommy makeover is that multiple surgical procedures can be completed in one extended session, which reduces the overall cost and recovery period of your transformation.

Goals of Mommy Makeover Include:

  • Reverse the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing on your body
  • Make your breasts look fuller and firmer
  • Reduce breast sagging
  • Remove unwanted fat deposits from different parts of the body
  • Reduce excessively sagging skin tissues from the abdomen and thighs
  • Enhance the visibility of your muscles
  • Make your body look firm, contoured, and youthful
