Mommy Makeover in Houston, TX
Becoming a mother is a miraculous time in a woman’s life. Not so miraculous is what it can do to her body after it’s all over. Post-pregnancy changes often leaves women with a myriad of physical issues to deal with (in addition to caring for a newborn). Premier Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer mommy makeovers to women in Houston, Pearland, Lake Jackson and the surrounding areas of South Houston.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover applies to a variety of procedures typically performed to help a woman regain her pre-pregnancy body shape after childbirth and breastfeeding. Following the birth of a child, a woman’s body often has weak stomach muscles, a thicker waist, stretch marks, loose skin in the stomach area, and sagging breasts. Every woman has her own degree of body concerns after pregnancy. Mommy makeovers can be personalized for the unique concerns of each mother.
Most commonly procedures are combined to restore a flatter tummy, lift and shape the breasts, and reduce the girth of the midsection, giving you a trimmer waistline and a more toned contour throughout your entire torso.
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

- Well defined, smaller waistline
- More toned and tightened torso

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
Generally speaking, if you’re a healthy adult woman, and you’re not pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning on becoming pregnant, you’re likely a good candidate for a mommy makeover. It is best if you’re not planning to be pregnant again in the future, since a pregnancy after a mommy makeover could alter your results.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
In the immediate post operative period, patients are encouraged to walk around the house in a bent position for the first few days to avoid putting a strain on the abdominal suture line.
You’ll experience some swelling and soreness but this is normal and typically subsides after only a few days. Light activities can be resumed a few weeks post-op once the swelling and tenderness has lessened. It’s recommended to abstain from strenuous activities, like sex and exercise, for weeks, but each case is different.
Dr. Hankins will give you instructions to follow post-operatively to maximize the healing process. It is in your best interest to follow them, and if you have any questions, the staff at Premier Plastic Surgery is always available to answer any concerns you may have.
Procedures You May Include in Mommy Makeover
Skin that stretches to accommodate your baby may not retract to its former size once you lose the “baby weight”. This can leave a “pooch” of loose skin around your midsection. Tummy tuck removes the excess skin and reconnects the abdominal muscles that shifted out of place during pregnancy to reattain a flatter, firmer stomach.
If you find that some baby weight stubbornly clings to your body even with a healthy lifestyle, liposuction is an effective way to permanently remove unwanted fat cells for sleeker contours on your abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, back, and/or arms.
Breasts that have enlarged during pregnancy/nursing often sag once they return to their normal size. Breast lift can re-elevate your breasts to a more youthful position on your chest, while redirecting your nipples for a “perky” outward projection.
Breast implants add volume to your breasts. Choose your ideal implants to achieve a specific size, shape, and feel so that your breasts look more symmetrical, and your body looks more proportional.
Mommy makeover is a customizable plastic surgery plan, so you can choose a couple procedures rather than all four depending on your specific aesthetic goals. Furthermore, while these are the most common surgeries included in mommy makeover, you may choose to combine other procedures that will rejuvenate your appearance and boost your confidence.
