Mommy Makeover San Antonio, TX

Time for Mom to Take Care of Mom

San Antonio Mommy Makeover at Dr. Garza Plastic Surgery

The joys and rewards of motherhood—while deep and eternal—nevertheless can exact a heavy price on Mom’s body. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding often cause a woman’s body to stretch, sag and lose some of its youthful tautness and elasticity. But by combining a customized series of aesthetic surgical procedures into one session, moms can frequently “turn back the clock” and recapture their earlier shape and tone.

Collectively, these procedures are called a Mommy Makeover. Dr. Ramon Garza III at Dr. Garza Plastic Surgery is professionally and personally committed to patients’ health, happiness, and overall well-being. As a board-certified member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Garza is highly trained and very experienced in performing all of the procedures included in Mommy Makeover surgical combinations. Begin your treatment with a San Antonio Mommy Makeover consultation with Dr. Garza Plastic Surgery.

Comprehensive & Customized For You

What is a “Mommy Makeover”?

Mommy Makeover is a generic term that refers to an array of surgical procedures that can be “mixed and matched” to address the individual and customizable aesthetic goals of a woman wanting to get her body back to pre-pregnancy shape. However, you needn’t be a mom to get a San Antonio Mommy Makeover.

Restore Your Pre-Pregnancy Body

What can a Mommy Makeover do?

Your personalized Mommy Makeover procedure will be designed to address all of your concerns so that you can live your most confident and fulfilling life. Mommy Makeover procedures can address a protruding abdomen, stretch marks, loose skin, sagging breasts, fat bulges in a variety of body areas including upper arms and thighs. If looking to receive a Mommy Makeover San Antonio candidates should be:

  • At least 18 years old
  • In good general health
  • At or near their ideal body weight
  • A non-smoker
  • At least six months post-childbirth
  • No longer breastfeeding for six months

How does a Mommy Makeover work?

The goal is to help a woman restore the body she enjoyed prior to pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The procedures included in a woman’s Mommy Makeover surgical combination depends on how much restoration she desires, her specific needs, her anatomy, and her available recovery time. Mommy Makeovers are designed to enable multiple operations to be performed in the same surgical session to maximize aesthetic benefits and shorten overall recovery time.

What procedures can be included in a Mommy Makeover?

The Mommy Makeover treatment areas generally include the abdomen and breasts, since they are almost always affected by childbirth. Breast procedures can include breast augmentation, breast reduction and/or breast lift. Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a “tummy tuck”, flattens, smooths, and tightens the abdomen. Other procedures available under the Mommy Makeover “umbrella” include:

  • Liposuction
  • Thigh lift
  • Arm lift

Depending on the combination of procedures selected, they can often be performed in one single operation. But for safety reasons, some combinations may be spread out over a series of surgical sessions.

Ask all the questions you want to, and express any and all concerns you may have. Your doctor will carefully review your medical history to help you determine what combination of Mommy Makeover procedures is right for you.

Plan For Surgical Success

Mommy Makeover Preparation and Procedure

A successful San Antonio Mommy Makeover begins in the weeks before your surgery. If you smoke, you’ll need to stop at least six weeks before your surgery. You will also be directed to suspend the use of any supplement or medication that could elevate surgical bleeding.

The length of your surgical session will depend on the number and nature of the procedures you have selected. In most cases, you’ll be able to go home on the same day as your surgery, although your doctor may want you to spend a night in the hospital or recovery facility.

Mommy Makeover Frequently Asked Questions

It makes sense to delay your Mommy Makeover until you are through having children. A pregnancy following Mommy Makeover can decrease your surgical results.

Some women who undergo aesthetic breast surgery report later difficulty in breastfeeding. That’s one more reason to put off Mommy Makeover until your family is complete.

Yes. But top-flight plastic surgeons such as Dr. Garza are adept at keeping incisions small and hiding scars in often unnoticeable places. After your surgery, taking proper care of your incision and following a good skin care regimen will help your scars fade over time.

That’s up to you and your doctor. Your chosen surgical procedures will be combined into one surgical session if they can be, and will always be performed in as few sessions as possible.

Assess your weight honestly. Pre-surgical weight loss can often improve your results.

Not much. But weight loss per se is not the objective. The goal of Mommy Makeover is to firm, tighten, lift, and restore.

You may be able to add non-surgical procedures, such as injectables like Botox, to your Mommy Makeover menu.

Since the procedures included in a Mommy Makeover “menu” are considered elective, aesthetic surgeries, your insurance will not cover the costs.

The cost of a Mommy Makeover will depend on the number and complexity of the procedures you choose, and the costs of any implants used in your combination of surgeries. Remember that combining multiple procedures into one surgical session reduces costs.
