Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a significant toll on a woman’s body, often resulting in drooping breasts and lost definition.

A mommy makeover treatment plan involves multiple cosmetic procedures that are performed in combination to restore your figure.

At Tarrant Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth, TX, Dr. Vishnu Rumalla helps mothers feel beautiful and confident...

Top Benefits of a Mommy Makeover at Our Practice

Restore your Figure

A mommy makeover can help patients achieve the body tone and contours they desire. With a comprehensive treatment plan, a plastic surgeon can restore the balance and definition of your figure. By lifting the breasts and tightening the midsection, we can help you feel more confident in your appearance.

Consolidated Recovery

Undergoing several procedures in one treatment involves just one recovery period, so you can get back to your busy schedule as soon as possible. Patients will need to take time off from work and arrange help with childcare. The number of weeks of downtime you require will depend on the extent of treatment.

Cost Effectiveness

We offer discounts at our Fort Worth practice if patients undergo a combination of treatments such as breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and tummy tuck. When a treatment plan is combined, patients save on costs such as anesthesia fees.

CosmetAssure Program

Dr. Rumalla carefully screens patients to ensure they can safely undergo treatment. He also participates in the CosmetAssure program, which provides supplemental coverage if medical complications develop within the first 30 days of undergoing elective cosmetic surgeries. While complications at our practice are rare, this provides added assurance for patients.

My experience with Dr Rumalla was wonderful. He is incredibly knowledgeable, personable and thoroughly explained the process before the surgery.  I was very happy with my lift and implant exchange to a smaller size. His staff was also great! I have been so impressed that he is always on time for my follow up appointments even if they are at the end of the day. I have already recommended him to a colleague.

Dr. Rumalla is a wonderful doctor with one of the best bedside manners I’ve seen. It’s great to see a doctor who’s always smiling. Who truly cares about his patient’s well-being. He did my breast reduction with underarm liposuction surgery on 9/6/19 I am very happy with my results!! But let me not forget to mention his staff/team. The ladies are awesome the first you see and the last before you leave. Everyone there is friendly. I’ve called when I had questions and they were very informative. Thanks you!!!

What Can a Mommy Makeover Treat?

This treatment is a combination of breast and body procedures designed to address many of the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s body. There is no cookie-cutter approach to this type of treatment plan; each patient undergoes a custom combination of procedures to address their unique needs.

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

In terms of a woman’s breasts, candidates for this type of surgical plan may desire breast reduction, lift, augmentation, or a combination of procedures as desired.

For the Tummy

Patients may wish to correct:

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

Many mommy makeover candidates desire a tummy tuck with muscle repair and liposuction.

Candidacy Factors

Breastfeeding

We won't know what the breasts will look like until the patient is finished breastfeeding. Once breastfeeding has ceased and the breasts have reached a stable size and shape, we can proceed with planning surgery.

Timing

Patients should avoid undergoing any type of plastic surgery for at least six months after childbirth. The body needs time to recover from pregnancy and birth, and six months is typically a sufficient amount of time.

Family Plans

If you plan on becoming pregnant again in the future, you should wait to undergo breast or body surgery. Future pregnancy will affect the appearance of the body, so it is best to wait until you are done having children.

Stable Weight

Patients should be near or at their ideal weight for several weeks before undergoing surgery. If patients lose additional weight in the breasts, tummy, or other areas of the body after surgery, they may re-develop loose skin.

Good Health

Patients should be in good health before undergoing elective surgery. Dr. Rumalla will conduct a detailed examination to make certain you are healthy enough to undergo a mommy makeover.

Non-smokers

Smoking before and after any type of surgery can increase the risk of complications. Ideally, patients should be non-smokers, or willing to quit for a period of time leading up to surgery. For best results, patients should abstain from smoking after surgery.

Popular Mommy Makeover Procedures

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, a 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, we 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 Fort Worth practice, 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-areola complex. The result is an improved breast shape and perkier bustline.

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 your breast reduction options with you. During this procedure, we can reduce the size of the breasts and lift them to a more youthful position.

Dr Rumalla has been my surgeon for two different procedures and I would HIGHLY recommend him. His bedside manner is the best I've ever witnessed. He's meticulous and a perfectionist; which is what you want in a surgeon. He's ethical and super nice. His staff is fantastic and his entire practice is well represented. Dr. Rumalla leads his team as any leader should and his practice is the best because of it.

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 Fort Worth 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 in Southlake.

Surgery

The surgical process may take several hours to complete since we are performing multiple treatments. During this time, we will make 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 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.

What Side Effects Should I Expect after Treatment?

Discomfort

Discomfort is typically at its worst the first three days after treatment. By the fourth day, most of our patients notice the pain noticeably subsiding. To reduce discomfort, our Fort Worth 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. Avoid strenuous activity, rest, drink plenty of water, and consume a low-sodium diet to reduce swelling.

Bruising

For the first one or two days, bruising starts out bright red. It then turns a purple or blue in color as the blood loses oxygen. After about five to 10 days, the bruise will begin to 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.

I have been so blessed to have found the skill, energy, and genuine care of Dr. Rumalla. Through the entire breast reduction process, from consultation to post operation care, I have experienced he and his staff set honest expectations, answer every question, and then meet and EXCEED what I expected! Post operation, I feel physically better and I am very pleased with the aesthetic results of my surgery! I highly recommend Dr. Rumalla!

Dr. Rumalla and his staff are the best.  They are attentive, thorough and caring.   Dr. Rumalla was recommended to me, by my hernia surgeon, for an abdominoplasty.  The surgery was necessary for my post operative health.  Dr. Rumallas staff coordinated all aspects of coordinating my surgery with the hospital and my hernia surgeon.  I didn't have to think about anything but my health.  Dr. Rumalla has continued to schedule appointments with me to ensure that I continue to heal well.   I highly recommend Dr. Rumalla.
