Know Your Options When Considering Mommy Makeover Surgery

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


One of the most popular questions when it comes to mommy makeover surgery is what specific procedures are included in the overall surgical plan. The answer will vary from patient to patient and relies heavily on a few important factors, including what the patient wants and what the surgeon’s limitations are. Below, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales explains how these variables influence the potential scope of a mommy makeover in Houston, TX, and outlines some of the treatments and procedures most commonly included in mommy makeover surgery at Morales Plastic Surgery.

Who should get a mommy makeover?

Mommy makeover surgery is typically performed to help reverse the unwanted physical side effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, though it can also be useful for women who have lost a significant amount of weight and have been left with loose skin or stubborn deposits of fat. Mommy makeover candidates should be in good health, at a healthy and stable weight, and done having children in order to ensure an optimal, long-lasting outcome.

What options do I have for mommy makeover surgery?

Choosing which treatments and procedures to include in your mommy makeover surgery will depend on several factors. First, it is up to the patient herself to determine what her goals are and which areas of her body she would like to address. Additionally, the surgeon’s limitations and preferences on how much surgery they are willing and able to safely perform in a single setting will be considered. Dr. Morales is highly experienced in total body transformations and can perform procedures involving multiple areas of the body. Generally speaking, Dr. Morales prefers to keep his surgeries to a maximum of seven hours, which provides ample time to address a long list of concerns.

What procedures can be included in a mommy makeover?

Most mommy makeover plans include procedures that address the primary problem areas associated with pregnancy: the abdomen and breasts. Still, there are many other possibilities when it comes to enhancing your body through mommy makeover surgery. Some of the most popular treatments and procedures included in Houston, TX mommy makeover cases are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift

  • Arm lift

Again, Dr. Morales emphasizes that much of it comes down to what the patient is specifically looking for out of their mommy makeover.
