Restoring Your Body

After pregnancy, breasts can lose their youthful position and shape, your tummy can become stretched and lose its tone, and extra fat can be deposited in areas that aren't so flattering. A mommy makeover at our Cypress, and Houston practice is a customized set of procedures that's aimed at helping women reclaim their pre-baby bodies.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Dr. Basu specializes in the mommy makeover—a customized combination of surgeries designed to restore the areas of a woman's body most affected by pregnancy and childbirth. The greatest benefit of a mommy makeover is the self-esteem boost most women enjoy after achieving such dramatic improvements in their bodies. These improvements include:

  • Lifting and reshaping sagging breasts
  • Restoring lost volume to the breasts
  • Removing sagging or hanging abdominal skin and stretch marks
  • Repairing separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) and flattening the belly
  • Slimming stubborn pockets of fat in areas such as the hips, thighs and abdomen
  • Improving the look and feel of the internal and external vaginal areas

Additionally, combining procedures offers numerous practical benefits; these include:

  • Consolidated recovery time as compared to multiple surgeries
  • Cost savings on anesthesia fees, facility fees, and prescription medications
  • Reduced time away from work or other activities

Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

If you have no significant medical problems and have maintained a stable, healthy weight for at least 3 months, then you are likely a good candidate for a mommy makeover. If you still have a significant amount of weight to lose before you reach your goal weight, you may want to postpone your mommy makeover to achieve the ideal outcome. Weight fluctuations after mommy makeover can negatively impact your results.

You should be finished having children if you're considering a mommy makeover. While it is possible to have more children after the procedure, another pregnancy will likely produce many of the same unwanted effects on your body, reversing the results of your surgery.

The Truth About Mommy Makeover Cost

Here in Houston, mommy makeover costs can vary from $9,500 to more than $20,000, depending on the procedures included. Another factor in the price is the credentialing and qualifications of your surgeon. The total cost of your procedure includes facility fees, anesthesia-related charges, and your pre- and post-op appointments.

At Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, we offer special promotions for a variety of cosmetic procedures. We also offer plastic surgery financing options to help make your mommy makeover as affordable as possible.

You may find providers offering bargain-basement prices on mommy makeovers in the Houston area, but be very cautious. Choosing the cheapest doctor—often an underqualified one—can put your health and your appearance at risk. Be sure that you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with an excellent safety record, positive online reviews, and glowing patient testimonials. He or she should also specialize in mommy makeover procedures and have an impressive before-and-after gallery.

Customizing Your Mommy Makeover

Once you've made the decision to have a mommy makeover, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your goals with Dr. Basu, who will help you select the best procedures to achieve your ideal look. Since pregnancy affects each woman's body differently, Dr. Basu spends ample time with each patient customizing her procedure.

Some of the most common cosmetic surgery options for a mommy makeover include the following:

Breast Enhancement

A breast lift restores the breasts to a higher, more youthful-looking position without increasing their size. Breast augmentation uses breast implants to replace breast volume you may have lost after pregnancy or breastfeeding. Some women have only a very minor degree of sagging, and the addition of an implant can "take up the slack" and provide the minor lift needed. However, if the degree of sagging is moderate to severe, adding an implant without a breast lift will not create a good result—the added weight may actually exacerbate sagging. Since many moms want uplifted breasts with added volume, it is not uncommon for Dr. Basu to combine breast augmentation and breast lift.

Alternately, large breasts can be made proportional and comfortable with 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.

Abdominoplasty

Better known as a tummy tuck, this procedure 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 is often the only way to restore the midsection to its pre-pregnancy look.

Liposuction

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 reduce problematic areas of stubborn fat.

Many moms wonder if liposuction alone can restore their slim, flat tummy after having children. If your belly pooch is simply due to excess fat and your abdominal skin is still firm and elastic, then you may be the rare mom who can get the look she wants from liposuction alone. However, most moms have excess, stretched abdominal skin and stretch marks, as well as a condition called diastasis recti. This is a separation of the abdominal muscles which causes the tummy to protrude, and it can only be corrected with tummy tuck surgery.

Thermiva®

This nonsurgical treatment can easily be added to a mommy makeover. Using radiofrequency energy, Thermiva adds tightness and tone to the internal or external genitalia, reducing incidences of stress incontinence, lending a youthful appearance to the labia minora, and even improving sexual enjoyment. For women who have delivered children vaginally, this type of improvement can be invaluable.

Your Mommy Makeover Surgery

During your initial consultation with Dr. Basu, he discusses your mommy makeover options in greater detail, as well as the kind 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-looking, 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 be fully evident by about 6 months after your surgery.

One of the top concerns Dr. Basu hears from mommy makeover patients is how much pain to expect from recovery. The answer depends on which procedures are performed and the individual's pain threshold. To ensure that his patients are as comfortable as possible, Dr. Basu performs nerve blocks on all of his mommy makeover and tummy tuck procedures. Nerve blocks utilize a local anesthetic called Exparel® to numb all areas so patients ideally don't feel pain in the surgical sites for several days. The effects last up to 72 hours and sometimes even longer. Some patients do not even use their prescription pain medication, finding that over-the-counter pain relievers are adequate.
