What Can a Mommy Makeover Treat?


For the Breasts

Patients may wish to correct:

  • Drooping of the breasts
  • Gain or loss of volume in the breasts
  • Widening of the nipple-areolar complex
  • Breast asymmetry

Candidates for this type of surgical plan may desire breast reduction, a breast liftbreast augmentation, or a combination of procedures.


For the Tummy

Patients may wish to correct:

  • Separation of the abdominal muscles
  • Stretched skin and stretch marks
  • Love handles
  • Drooping of the pubic region

Mommy makeover candidates often elect to undergo a tummy tuck with muscle repair and liposuction.

Worried About Cost? Financing Options Are Available

Here at Tarrant Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth, we understand how life-changing a mommy makeover procedure can be, so we strive to make it affordable for all. In addition to offering discounts for combining treatments, we also work with a third-party financing company called CareCredit® to provide flexible payment options. CareCredit splits your total treatment cost into monthly payments using a timeline that works for you. Our staff is happy to help you get started with the process.

Popular Mommy Makeover Procedures

tummy tuck

Tummy Tuck

If you have loose abdominal muscles and sagging skin on your stomach, tummy tuck surgery is the only option that can address these post-pregnancy issues. By making a discreet incision below the bikini line, our plastic surgeon can adjust and tighten the underlying abdominal muscles to flatten the stomach area. The skin can then be tightened to produce a more toned appearance.

Liposuction

Excess fat is most common in the stomach area after pregnancy, but it can also accumulate in the thighs, hips, and buttocks. If you are near or at your goal weight, but have unresponsive pockets of fat in problem areas, our Fort Worth surgeon can perform liposuction to remove fatty tissue and contour your figure. When combined with procedures such as breast surgery and a tummy tuck, liposuction can restore attractive definition.

breast augmentation

Breast Augmentation

We use saline and silicone breast implants to effectively and predictably improve the size and shape of breasts that have lost volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Rumalla will help you choose the right breast implants at our practice serving Fort Worth, and he will tailor the breast augmentation surgical plan to meet your unique goals and anatomy.

Breast Lift

Many patients notice that their breasts sag to some degree after having a child. Breast augmentation can provide some lift to the breasts, but many patients require breast lift surgery to tighten skin and address the position and size of the nipple-areolar complex. The result is an improved breast shape and perkier bustline.

breast reduction

Breast Reduction

If heavy or overly large breasts are making it difficult to engage in physical activity or affecting the balance of your figure, we can discuss breast reduction options with you. During this procedure, our Fort Worth surgeon can reduce the size of the breasts and lift them to a more youthful position.

I absolutely love Dr. Rumalla and his team! I’m 8 weeks post-op and love my results!!! I’ve already purchased a few bikinis for the summer. I haven’t worn one of those in over 20years! I opted to stay overnight in the hospital. After surgery, Dr. Rumalla checked on me, came back that night to walk me and ensure I was okay, and again the following day. I was not expecting this level of care from my surgeon; he really went above and beyond. Valerie, Stephanie, and Jamie assisted during my follow-up visits. They were all so sweet, answered all my questions, and helped with changing bandages before Dr. Rumalla checked on me. I did a lot of research before selecting a surgeon, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision!!!

The Mommy Makeover Treatment Process

Consultation

All patients wishing to undergo a mommy makeover will have a thorough medical evaluation prior to surgery. Mommy makeover consultations at our practice are always complimentary.

Planning

Dr. Rumalla will carefully plan your surgery and tailor each surgical treatment to address your cosmetic concerns, complement your features, and meet your expectations. Patients can help us develop a successful treatment plan by sending us photos of results they like and taking any other measures they feel will help communicate their goals to us.

Anesthesia

The mommy makeover procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, which is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist at our surgery center.

Surgery

The surgical process may take several hours because we are performing multiple treatments. During this time, your surgeon will create discreet incisions, make the necessary refinements, check for symmetry, close all of the incisions, and apply bandages.

Recovery

Most of our mommy makeover patients stay overnight at our Fort Worth-area surgery center so we can provide close post-operative supervision. We use pain pumps during this time to keep patients feeling as comfortable as possible.

Release

Upon the doctor's approval, patients can return home to recover. It is important to have help with the kids during this time, as patients will be unable to bend over or lift anything heavy. Over the next few weeks, patients will return to our Fort Worth practice for follow-up appointments.

When Can I Return to Normal Activities?

Because every patient's body heals at a different pace, the recovery window of when you can return to work looks a little different for everyone. Here are some general guidelines and estimates on when you can expect to return to daily activities:

Work

Depending on which procedures were included in your mommy makeover, you can expect to return to work as early as a few days after plastic surgery, but you may need two weeks or longer. Many patients are able to return to work the same week after undergoing breast augmentation, while a tummy tuck may require two weeks. We recommend taking as much time off as needed to give your body a chance to rest and recover.

Exercise

Many patients can return to regular exercising around six weeks after the procedure. Light walking can be beneficial in the first few weeks after plastic surgery to promote healthy blood circulation. Low impact exercise such as yoga may be acceptable three to four weeks after surgery. Anything more rigorous will have to be cleared by Dr. Rumalla at your post-op appointment around the six weeks or later mark.

I recently had a Mommy makeover with Dr. Rumalla. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck. I also had a hernia in my belly button that needed to be fixed. At my consultation and many times after that he would remind me that he may not be able to save my actual belly button. Sure enough, my own belly button wasn’t going to make it. Dr. Rumalla made me a new belly button and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It looks a million times better than my birth belly button. My breasts are beautiful! I want to show them any time I can. I never thought I could be this happy with the results. I can finally look in the mirror and have the confidence I had been missing in my life for so long. From the moment my husband and myself stepped into Dr.Rumalla’s office we knew he was the one. We appreciated the time he spent with us, his knowledge and listening to my husbands opinion and concerns.

Potential Side Effects

Discomfort

Discomfort is typically at its worst the first three days after treatment. By the fourth day, most of our patients notice the pain subsiding. To reduce discomfort, our practice recommends that patients take over-the-counter pain medication, rest, and avoid strenuous activity.

Swelling

Swelling typically peaks three to four days after surgery, and usually goes down to a reasonable level by two weeks after surgery. However, some residual swelling may last for three to six months. To reduce swelling, rest, avoid strenuous activity, drink plenty of water, and consume a low-sodium diet.

Bruising

For the first one or two days, bruising starts out bright red. It then turns purple or blue as the blood loses oxygen. After about five to 10 days, the bruise will turn a green or yellow shade, before turning light yellow or brown after about two weeks and finally fading.

Itching and Tingling

Any nerves that were damaged during surgery can cause temporary tingling, numbness, or itching, most commonly at the incision sites. It is important to resist the urge to rub the incision site during the healing period, as this can increase the risk of greater post-surgical scarring.

Why Stop at Surgery?

Revitalize Your Skin with Injectables

For mothers who are concerned about facial fine lines or wrinkles, we offer popular injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to rejuvenate your skin. These make excellent additions to a mommy makeover, or they work well as independent treatments while you decide which combination of procedures is right for you.

BOTOX

BOTOX Cosmetic is a treatment that temporarily reduces and softens the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet, frown lines, and other signs of aging. Results can last up to three to four months before needing retreatment.

Dermal Fillers

If you have areas of lost volume such as creases or forehead lines, dermal fillers can give those areas a smoother, fuller appearance. Fillers last up to one year, with most patients opting for retreatment every six months.

As someone who has had a number of various surgeries in life, Dr. Rumalla and his team by far exceeded my expectations. After my initial appointment, I knew I was in the best care possible. He has the friendliest demeanor that guided me all the way from start to finish. He made sure I was well informed, comfortable with my choices and the surgery results were to my (and his) satisfaction. He and his team went above and beyond to ensure that I was healing properly and make me feel like I was their highest priority. If I could give more gold stars, I would!

I was originally discouraged with some results I experienced. However, Dr. Rumalla has been there for me throughout this process and has addressed any issues and concerns I had along the way. He has provided explanations and details that really explained my personal scenario. I have seen his demeanor as a doctor and a person and I am pleased. My husband and I both feel confident under his care.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have booked your consultation with Dr. Tarrant and are waiting to speak to him, we know you are probably very excited to start exploring this treatment and have many questions you would like to ask. An FAQ is no substitute for a face-to-face consultation with a plastic surgeon, but in the meantime, we have provided answers to a few of the most commonly asked questions about mommy makeovers to help give you a frame of reference:

Will insurance cover a mommy makeover?

No. Because a mommy makeover is elective, it is not covered by insurance.

How much does it cost?

Because a mommy makeover is completely customized to your unique cosmetic goals, the cost of treatment will vary with each patient. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will develop your custom surgical plan and we can then discuss costs and financing options.

How do I maintain the results?

There are several things you can do to maintain the results of your mommy makeover. Lead a healthy lifestyle by eating a healthy and balanced diet and exercising regularly. If you use any type of tobacco products, breaking the habit can go a long way toward helping you maintain your results. Proper hydration is also very important to stay fit and healthy. Finally, protect yourself against the sun by using a sunblock outdoors. This will help scars remain minimally noticeable and keep your skin looking healthy.
