Mommy Makeover in Dallas and Allen, TX
Pregnancy, weight loss, and breastfeeding can leave lasting marks on a woman’s body. Changes, such as sagging skin and excess fat, can make a woman feel insecure about her once youthful appearance.
While some patients manage to restore their figure through diet and exercise, others are left with unflattering and unwanted changes. Fortunately, Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Pollock can help you achieve the results you want by performing Mommy Makeover surgery. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of multiple body contouring procedures to help women regain a more toned and feminine body shape.
Are You Ready For
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you are interested in undergoing Mommy Makeover surgery, it is important that you are in good health and have realistic expectations about what this surgery can accomplish. You will also be asked to stop smoking for a few weeks before and after your procedure to avoid any unnecessary complications.
The best candidates for Mommy Makeover surgery are women who are done with childbearing and breastfeeding and have tried to restore their physique through diet and exercise. Dr. Pollock will do a thorough examination at his Dallas, Texas, practice to determine the best approach for your procedure and address your aesthetic concerns and needs. You may benefit from Mommy Makeover surgery if you struggle with one or more of the following issues:
- Weak abdominal muscles
- Excess fat and skin
- Loss of breast volume and shape
What Are My Procedure Options?
Many women feel dissatisfied with their post-pregnancy breasts due to loss of volume and shape as a result of size fluctuations during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts and create an attractive, voluptuous bust.
Breast Lift Surgery
The effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause the breasts and the nipple-areola complex to sag below the inframammary crease. Breast lift surgery raises and tightens the breasts while repositioning the nipples and areolas to produce a youthful and perky appearance.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery can tighten the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin to create a firmer and tighter abdomen. In cases where there is an excess of fat along the stomach, liposuction of the abdomen can be performed alongside your tummy tuck procedure. Liposuction can be applied to nearly any area of the body that has experienced the development of stubborn fatty deposits following pregnancy.
What Can I Expect During My Mommy Makeover Recovery?
Your recovery will depend on the number and combination of procedures performed during your Mommy Makeover. Following your surgery, a compression garment may be wrapped around the treated areas to support your new contours and reduce swelling. Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve within a few days. You will be asked to refrain from strenuous activities for four weeks but can likely return to work two weeks after your surgery, depending on the nature of your job and recommendations of Dr. Pollock.
What Results Can I Expect After My Mommy Makeover Procedure?
You will notice a significant improvement in your body shape and enjoy youthful and attractive contours. While some scarring will occur, it can be easily hidden underneath most clothing and will likely fade over time. You can expect long-lasting results so long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.
What Are Frequently Asked Questions About Mommy Makeover Surgery?
What are some of the benefits of Mommy Makeover surgery?
Because Mommy Makeover surgery is a combination of plastic surgery procedures, you will have a dynamic and total transformation. Additionally, combining procedures into your Mommy Makeover can cut down on the overall cost and recovery time, since you are undergoing and recovering from the procedures at the same time.
Why should I wait to have Mommy Makeover surgery after I’m done having children?
While you are absolutely able to still have children after Mommy Makeover surgery, you need to understand that pregnancy and childbirth will affect or erase many of the results that your Mommy Makeover gave you. That is why it is strongly recommended that you wait to have your Mommy Makeover until after you are done having children.
Can I choose which procedures I have for my Mommy Makeover surgery?
Of course! One of the best parts about Mommy Makeover surgery is that it is completely customizable to you and what you are looking for. If there is a certain procedure that you don’t want to have, then you won’t have to worry about it.
At your consultation, you will have a chance to talk with Dr. Pollock about what you are looking to have done with your post-pregnancy body.
Will I feel any pain during my surgery?
No. Because general anesthesia is used, you will not feel any pain or discomfort during your procedure. However, you will probably feel tender and sore in the week after your procedure. Any pain you feel can be alleviated by prescribed or over-the-counter medication.
How long will it take to complete my Mommy Makeover procedure?
The exact length of your Mommy Makeover will depend on the surgeries you combine, but for most patients, the procedure itself takes about three to six hours.
You should expect to be at the hospital for up to seven hours, which includes administering the anesthesia as well as waiting for the anesthesia to wear off.
