What is a Mommy Makeover?

While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it can alter the size and shape of various body parts and often leaves one feeling a little frustrated. The great news is that it's possible to reclaim a tighter, slimmer figure with the help of the mommy makeover surgery performed at Pearce Plastic Surgery. Dr. Paul Pearce frequently works with women who wish to return to their pre-pregnancy shape. The mommy makeover procedure uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening to reshape the stomach and breasts with or without implants.

How Is A Mommy Makeover Performed?

The mommy makeover procedure is a personalized body contouring surgery created by Dr. Pearce that caters to each patient's needs and aspirations. The treatment typically combines a full tummy tuck with a breast lift, with or without implants. These procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours. For enhanced results, some patients complement it with nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, like laser treatments and injectables, to smoothen facial lines and reduce surface irregularities.

Reclaim Your Figure

At Pearce Plastic Surgery, we understand that living in a body that doesn't feel like your own can be difficult. A mommy makeover can improve drooping breasts, excess skin on the stomach, and other skin irregularities. During your consultation, Dr. Pearce will discuss your concerns and create a tailored treatment plan to enhance each area. With the latest medical advancements and surgical techniques, it is achievable to regain the silhouette you desire. To learn more about a mommy makeover, call our office in Austin, TX to schedule a consultation.

Who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover?

Women in good overall health, who no longer wish to have children, make excellent candidates for a mommy makeover. If you smoke or vape, quitting for 4 – 6 weeks before and after the procedure is essential to minimize complications. Dr. Pearce will require patients with medical conditions to undergo further medical assessments to ensure they are fully prepared for surgery.

What procedures are part of a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover typically includes a tummy tuck and breast lift with or without breast implants. Other procedures that can be included or substituted are liposuction of the flanks, lower back and bra roll area, arm lift, labiaplasty, or thigh lift.

How soon can I have a mommy makeover after having children?

Dr. Pearce recommends waiting 9 – 12 months after childbirth for a mommy makeover to ensure proper recovery. It's essential to give your body time to recuperate from the strains of pregnancy. In some cases, waiting longer might be necessary, particularly if you are still breastfeeding, as Dr. Pearce will require a six-month lactation-free period before any breast lift or implant placement.

Is it essential to finish having children before undergoing a mommy makeover?

Pregnancy after a mommy makeover is possible, but it can lead to changes in your body, such as stretching your abdominal wall again or repeatedly sagging your breasts. These changes can be permanent and may necessitate a second surgery to regain the initial results. Dr. Pearce recommends completing childbearing before opting for a mommy makeover to avoid such complications.

What is the recovery process like after a mommy makeover?

Following a mommy makeover, patients with liposuction and a tummy tuck must wear a compression garment day and night for several weeks. During the first 7 – 10 days after the tummy tuck, you will walk hunched over to minimize stress on the abdominal incisions. Breast lift patients may experience swelling. If breast implants are placed, they will initially be positioned higher on the chest wall and gradually settle into a more natural position over several weeks. The incisions should be fully healed after six weeks, and patients can resume normal daily activities, including going to the gym.

When will I see the full results of my mommy makeover?

The complete results of a mommy makeover surgery become are typically seen after six months. During this time, the swelling diminishes, and the skin contracts, showcasing the desired outcome.

I chose doctor Pearce to do my chin lipo after I did some research on YouTube. His videos popped up and I instantly felt very comfortable booking a consultation. I love the fact that he educates us on every procedure beforehand and that he is just a very down to earth guy and I just love him. I am very skeptical when it comes down to choosing a doctor but that was never an issue from start to finish. He is very understanding and he will do his very best to give you the results that you are looking for. I would definitely choose him for any other procedure I decide to get in the future.

Dr. Pearce was on call at Round Rock Medical Center at a very difficult moment for my family. My son experienced a very bad motorcycle accident on Sept. 12, 2022 and Dr. Pearce operated on him to repair the cosmetic results of severe head trauma. He has operated on my son 3 times, the last one being 2 days ago. He did miraculous work in restoring my son’s head shape and eye socket to normal. He worked for 6.5 hours in surgery this time to fix some abnormalities and my son looks great. We are so grateful to Dr. Pearce!
