Mommy Makeover in Dallas
A mommy makeover in Dallas can be a life-changing body procedure for many mothers who need help restoring their figure after pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body undergoes many dramatic changes, and not all women find it easy to recover their pre-childbearing figure.
Am I a candidate for a Mommy makeover?
Women after pregnancy are ideal candidates for a mommy makeover to restore the shape of their silhouette. Changes attributed to the body accommodating the baby’s growth over nine months could make women feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about losing breast volume, skin overstretched, and sagging tummy.
Many women can lose weight post-pregnancy; however, weight loss cannot correct skin laxity or overstretched muscles. It is most frustrating when these cosmetic concerns cannot be corrected with diet and exercise, leaving the surgery to be the only option for a full solution. It is recommended that you decide to get the surgery only when you feel that you are finished having children. This timing of the procedure makes a difference in the longevity of your results.

What to expect during your Dallas Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeover in Dallas is a highly customized procedure and varies from patient to patient. Some women opt for a combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction to address the loose skin and excess fat deposits on their stomach. If you are interested in a body contouring procedure or a tummy tuck, it is important that you are within 15 lbs. of your goal weight. This is because neither procedure is intended to act as a drastic weight loss procedure. Other women want a combination of breast implants and/or a breast lift for elevated and fuller breasts. This is because many women see a fluctuation in breast size during the process of pre-and post-pregnancy. Once the breasts grow and shrink within a short period of time, the skin can become stretched from the additional stress. Other procedures commonly associated with mommy makeover include abdominoplasty to tighten the abdominal muscles and reduce the waist size, breast reduction, and labiaplasty.
