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.
