About the Mommy Makeover

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden frequently meets with women who want their pre-pregnancy bodies back. Even though childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it inevitably will alter the look, shape, and size of various body parts — and can leave you feeling frustrated. The great news is that it's possible to once again attain a slim and taut appearance thanks to the help of the mommy makeover surgery performed at the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. in Southlake, TX. This surgery uses a blend of fat removal and skin tightening to target the abdomen and breasts, and other affected body parts — basically any area affected by weight gain or nursing can be addressed. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kasden and get your custom mommy makeover plan.

Ideal Candidates

The right candidates for this surgery are women who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth. You may have worked to achieve a slimmer, tighter figure through a clean diet and exercise with limited result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is needed to once again have their pre-pregnancy body. If you are feeling hopeless with the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be perfect for you. The goal of Dr. Kasden is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy shape so you can resume life without feeling self-conscious.

Surgical Technique

A mommy makeover is a unique treatment tailored for women by plastic surgeon Dr. Kasden based on the specific body areas you want improved or enhanced. Many procedures can be performed together — the most common treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, taking 3 – 7 hours based upon the number of treatments. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital is usually needed. 

What to Expect

After a recovery period in the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. The overall recovery is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be hard the first few days, and a thorough home care protocol will be adhered to in order to make sure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most women find the healing phase can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to resume a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should wait for about two months. In the end, this surgery can be life changing for women, creating a newfound love for their new shape once again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary greatly depending on what you are including in your surgery. In your consultation, Dr. Kasden will need to create your treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in reclaiming your body and confidence after pregnancy and childbirth, so it's important to focus on getting the results you want instead of the lowest cost. The plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. accepts many payment options and we can help you find low-interest medical financing so your mommy makeover is easy to afford.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
In your initial consultation with Dr. Kasden, he will listen to your needs and concerns before examining your body. After this, he can make recommendations on what should be a part of your mommy makeover. Most women include a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) along with liposuction and a body lift.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body so nonsurgical treatments are usually not enough to get the results you want. During your consultation, Dr. Kasden can discuss both surgical and nonsurgical options. Based on your needs and goals, he will let you know if treatments like nonsurgical fat reduction or nonsurgical skin tightening can be considered.

Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new shape, it does include some scarring. Dr. Kasden will make every effort possible to create clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be concealed with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery instructions, Dr. Kasden or a member of his team will go over scar care so your incisions heal properly.

What if I get pregnant again?
In a perfect world, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery can be performed to refresh your results.
