Moms are the superheroes of their families. They effortlessly juggle a myriad of tasks, and ensure everyone is taken care of at all times.
Now it’s time for Mommy to take care of herself!
Dr. Hernandez is proud to offer a Mommy Makeover for Eterna Cosmetic Surgery Patients in San Antonio. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are extremely taxing on our bodies. Then, our babies grow into toddlers and young children. With so much to focus on, many moms are unable to focus on themselves.
A Mommy Makeover is designed to help moms look and feel their best. You deserve it!
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover includes a series of cosmetic procedures designed to restore your body to its pre-baby shape. Dr. Hernandez will work with you to discuss your goals, and design a custom Mommy Makeover that helps you feel more confident with a pleasing, more youthful appearance.
What procedures are included with a Mommy Makeover?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Hernandez will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your specific goals. Then you will work together to determine the procedures included with your Mommy Makeover. Dr. Hernandez will perform the procedures of your Mommy Makeover during the same session to maximize your results and limit your downtime.
The most common combination of procedures selected by Eterna Cosmetic Surgery patients in San Antonio includes Breast Augmentation with a Tummy Tuck. But YOUR Mommy Makeover may include any combination of the following:
During breast surgery, Dr. Hernandez enhances the natural curves of your body to best highlight your natural silhouette. Breast surgeries included with a Mommy Makeover can include:
Saline or silicone implants are used to restore curves and size to breasts that have changed due to pregnancy, weight loss, and/or breastfeeding.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer is an innovative solution that enhances the curves and size of the breasts using your own fat for natural results.
Large breasts can cause many problems for women, particularly busy moms! Breast Reduction surgery will reduce, re-contour, elevate, and reshape the breasts.
Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss can all lead to sagging or drooping breasts. During Breast Lift surgery, Dr. Hernandez removes excess skin and tissue to lift the breasts and provide a more pleasing contour.
Breast Lift with Implants
Some moms elect for Breast Lift surgery with implants to restore and enhance the size and shape of their breasts.
Body Contouring procedures help moms restore their natural curves and create a more youthful appearance by removing and/or tightening excess skin. During your Mommy Makeover, you may choose one or more of the following procedures:
Childbirth changes our bodies in a myriad of ways. Sometimes even healthy diet and exercise can’t even restore them to our pre-pregnancy state. That’s why many women elect for liposuction during a Mommy Makeover.
Tummy Tucks are one of the most popular procedures Dr. Hernandez performs during Mommy Makeover. Our skin is maxed out during pregnancy! Once our beautiful babies are born, in many cases, the skin does not return to its previous state. A Tummy Tuck will remove excess skin and restore beautiful curves to your tummy area.
Who is an ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Moms who are in good health, and either are nonsmokers or who can stop smoking for several weeks before and after surgery are ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover.
During your consultation, Dr. Hernandez will talk to you about your specific situation and goals, and will conduct a thorough examination so that she can make the best recommendation to help you reach your goals.
What happens after a Mommy Makeover?
Your exact recovery instructions will vary depending on which procedures were performed by Dr. Hernandez during your Mommy Makeover (you’ll also find more information on what to expect after a specific procedure by clicking on their respective page links).
Generally speaking; however, patients should expect to take off of work for at least 10 to 14 days after their procedures. This is time to focus on YOU! Dr. Hernandez will prescribe pain medication as appropriate to mitigate any discomfort you’ll feel after your Mommy Makeover.
Expect some swelling and bruising from the procedures included with your Mommy Makeover, which will often dissipate in the first week after your Mommy Makeover. Rest, hydration, and a healthy diet will promote healing and help you feel your best during recovery.
