Mommy Makeover

Appointment New Patient Appointment or 214-645-2353

A “mommy makeover” typically includes several procedures, such as a tummy tuck, a breast-lift with or without implants, and liposuction.

At UT Southwestern Medical Center, patients can rely on our Dallas-area plastic surgeons to guide them through a comprehensive range of alternatives to flatten the abdomen and contour areas in combination with lifting the breasts with or without augmentation.

Reasons to Have a Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and other factors all contribute to changes that happen to a woman’s body after having children. When exercise and diet programs are not enough to achieve the results patients want, they might want to consider a “mommy makeover” – which is a combination of procedures – to reshape their body.

Because no two women are alike, our surgeons make sure the procedures are appropriate for each individual patient. We recommend options based on the woman, applying the latest technology, products, and techniques to achieve safe, effective results. 

Our team of plastic surgeons is internationally recognized for delivering outstanding clinical care and conducting groundbreaking research. One of the hallmarks of plastic surgery at UT Southwestern is the accessibility of our doctors to patients before and after the surgery to provide guidance and answer any questions.

What Is a Mommy Makeover

Below are a few of the most typical procedures that women have as part of a mommy makeover surgery:

  • Body contouring: Can include an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to remove excess skin or fat for a flatter tummy, hips and/or extremities often with liposuction
  • Breast surgery: Breast-lift or breast reduction to change the shape and/or size of the breasts

Mommy Makeover: What to Expect

During an initial consultation, we talk with patients about their overall health and expectations, and discuss what options and procedures might work best. Mommy makeovers can be done on patients as young as their 20s. Recovery time will vary, depending on the surgical procedures involved.

For long-term results, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight. We can recommend a diet and exercise plan to help patients maintain the long-term impact of a mommy makeover.
