After pregnancy, breasts can lose their youthful position and shape, your tummy can become stretched and lose its tone, and extra fat gets deposited in areas that are not so flattering. A mommy makeover is a customized set of procedures aimed at helping women reclaim their pre-baby bodies.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bob Basu is experienced in creating beautiful and natural-looking results with mommy makeovers. His background in a range of cosmetic enhancements for the face, body and breasts make him a top choice for moms considering cosmetic surgery in Texas and throughout the country.

Why Consider a Mommy Makeover?
As each pregnancy affects each woman’s body differently, there’s a range of reasons women consider getting a mommy makeover after they’ve completed their families. Some of the most common include:
- Sagging breasts
- Breasts that have lost their volume
- Extended stomach skin
- Separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
- Stubborn pockets of fat in areas like the hips, thighs or elsewhere
- Breasts that are uncomfortably large
Good Candidates for Mommy Makeover
Dr. Basu explains which women are the best candidates for mommy makeover surgery.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
Mommy makeover costs vary depending on the procedures included. Your total costs will include facility fees, anesthesia-related charges and your pre-op and post-op appointments.
Your Mommy Makeover Options
Once you’ve made your decision to have a mommy makeover, you’ll have the opportunity to select the best procedures to reach your ideal look. Since every woman is different, Dr. Basu carefully customizes each mommy makeover to your personal needs and goals. Some of the most common cosmetic surgery options for a mommy makeover include:
A tummy tuck removes excess skin and tissue in the lower abdomen and tightens and repairs the muscles of the abdominal wall. This can be one of the most beneficial procedures for women who have been pregnant, as a tummy tuck can be the only way to restore the midsection to its pre-pregnancy look.
A breast lift restores a youthful position of the breasts, while saline or silicone breast implants can replace breast volume you may have lost after pregnancy or breastfeeding. Large breasts can be made more proportional with a breast reduction. Dr. Basu specializes in the internal bra technique, which can be especially helpful for women whose breasts have lost elasticity and begun to sag after nursing.
Weight fluctuations can leave you with persistent fat deposits that are very difficult to eradicate through diet and exercise. Liposuction is a selective fat removal procedure that can slim down problem areas of stubborn fat.

Your Mommy Makeover Surgery
During your initial consultation with Dr. Basu, he will discuss your mommy makeover options in greater detail and the kinds of results you can expect from your procedure. He can also make recommendations about choosing the best treatment or combination of treatments for your needs.
Because each mommy makeover is unique, your procedure will be custom-tailored to your specific preferences. Dr. Basu takes special care to place all incisions as discreetly as possible, although some scarring is inevitable. Most women feel that the scars are well worth the tradeoff for a more youthful, feminine figure.
Your Recovery & Results
Your recovery process will depend on which procedures you include in your mommy makeover and how your body responds to surgery. Most women take at least 2 to 3 weeks away from work and other normal activities, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for another several weeks after that. Your final results should develop by about 6 months after your surgery.
