What is a Mommy Makeover?

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez regularly meets with women who want their pre-pregnancy silhouette back. Even though childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment in a woman’s life, it can change the look, shape, and size of certain body parts — and could leave one feeling frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's possible to once again attain a slim and taut appearance, thanks to the help of the mommy makeover surgical procedure performed at Beleza Surgery. This body contouring treatment uses a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body — basically any area affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be repaired. In addition, nonsurgical procedures can be incorporated to smooth surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin, from the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy. For more information, contact one of our Central Texas locations in Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX.

What Can I Expect from My Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover at Beleza Surgery is a custom surgery tailored for each woman by Dr. Hix-Hernandez based on the specific body areas they desire to be corrected. Many procedures can be paired together — the most common treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours depending on the complexity, at our accredited OR in our Cedar Park, TX facility. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical methods, such as laser treatments and injectables, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface irregularities. Afterward, you will begin your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. Recovering from this surgery is generally a slow process, depending on your specific treatment plan. With most mommy makeovers, moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first week or so, and a step-by-step, at-home care protocol will be needed to ensure the incisions heal properly. Most patients find the healing process can last around six months but are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should wait for about two months. In the end, this surgery at Beleza Surgery can make an incredible impact on women, giving them their self-confidence once again.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

How do I prepare for a mommy makeover?

The answer varies based on your individual health and the procedures chosen. However, Dr. Hix-Hernandez may recommend avoiding blood thinning medications several weeks prior to surgery. You will also need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for at least the first 24 hours after your mommy makeover. We can provide a detailed list of instructions beforehand.

Will my mommy makeover results appear natural?

Our team at Beleza Surgery works hard to ensure natural results that don't appear "overdone." This is because we take your individual goals and anatomy into consideration when planning your surgery. Feel free to ask about our previous mommy makeover patients during your consultation. We can show you before-and-after photos — so you have a better understanding of what to expect.

What if I get pregnant after a mommy makeover?

We generally advise patients to wait until after having children before getting a mommy makeover. This is because pregnancy and childbirth may undo the results of your procedures. However, we can discuss your options if you do get pregnant after your surgery in Cedar Park, TX. We are always happy to recommend additional treatments or procedures as needed.
