Gain the Confidence that Comes Along with Looking and Feeling Your Best.
A mommy makeover is a set of surgical procedures designed to restore the appearance of several areas of the body after childbirth and breastfeeding. At Sculpt Aesthetic Center, we provide safe and comprehensive mommy makeovers in Frisco, TX. The procedures involved vary depending on the aesthetic needs and goals of each patient.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can target a certain area, but often involves a combination of breast and body plastic surgery procedures to highlight the full contours of your figure. The most common mommy makeover procedure includes a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift and/or Breast Augmentation, and Liposuction. After a detailed examination and discussion of your goals, a tailored surgical plan is created for you.
What Are the Different Options for a Mommy Makeover?
Common procedures performed as part of a mommy makeover package include:
- Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)– to remove extra skin, flatten the stomach and shape the waist.
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy)– to shape and lift the breasts into a more youthful position.
- Breast Augmentation– to increase breast size, add volume and shape to deflated breasts.
- Liposuction– to remove stubborn fat from the stomach, love handles, bra-line, hips and thighs.
- Buttock Augmentation with fat (BBL)– to add volume, projection and shape to the butt.
- Buttock Lift- to remove excess skin of the lower back and lift sagging skin of the buttock, hips and outer thighs.
- Laser & Skin Resurfacing– to remove unhealthy skin, remove fine lines, and restore your glow.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
A good candidate for a mommy makeover is a woman in good health that does not or no longer plans on getting pregnant. If a pregnancy is likely or planned, it is better to wait on the Tummy Tuck procedure and potentially any breast procedure as well. Additional pregnancies could stretch the abdominal tissue while hormonal changes and breast-feeding can drastically change the quality and elasticity of breast tissue.
Candidates should have realistic expectations and health conditions that could result in post-surgery healing problems. Ideal candidates are willing to commit to the full recovery process and follow recommendations for lasting results.

Mommy Makeover Procedure
The mommy makeover surgery will last between three to five hours, depending on the number and type of procedures involved. General anesthesia will be administered before creating incisions.
Once the necessary changes have been achieved, the incisions will be sutured and bandaged. Drains may be placed to remove excess fluid.
The patient can go home once their condition has stabilized. Recovery instructions will be provided to aid the healing process. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort may be experienced but will fade over time.
Strenuous activities will be prohibited for four to six weeks or until the surgeon allows. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to ensure that healing is progressing as expected.
Is It Safe to Have Multiple Procedures Done at the Same Time?
Yes. It is common to do three or four different procedures at the same time as part of the mommy makeover package. Since multiple areas are normally addressed at one time, a mommy makeover procedure is performed under general anesthesia to allow surgical efficiency and strict monitoring to ensure patient safety. Surgical time will vary based on the surgical plan.
What Is Recovery Like?
The patient will be released after their condition has stabilized. After this, they will be driven home by a friend or a family member.
Recovery instructions will be provided to aid in the healing process. The patient may feel temporary discomfort, bruising, swelling, and redness in the surgical area. A protective garment must be worn during recovery to control swelling.
Depending on the number of procedures performed, the recovery time may be between four and six weeks. Physical exercises will be prohibited during this time, as will other physically taxing activities.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The price of a mommy makeover will vary depending on factors like the number of procedures performed. If two surgical sessions are required instead of a single session, it may impact the total cost of the surgery.
