Mommy Makeover in San Antonio
Bring back your pre-pregnancy body with a mommy makeover in San Antonio. The bodily changes that accompany motherhood can take a toll on your self-esteem. Thanks to the mommy makeover, these changes can be reversed during a single comprehensive procedure.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination package of procedures used to improve the body’s appearance after childbirth and breastfeeding.
Depending on your mommy makeover preferences, Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez will recommend treatments and procedures to help you achieve a younger look. At Eterna Cosmetic Surgery, a mommy makeover can include a No-Cut Tummy Tuck and a fat transfer breast augmentation.
A No-Cut Tummy Tuck is a procedure used to improve lax abdominal skin and excess stubborn fat without the standard abdominoplasty incisions. Instead, Renuvion J-Plasma is used for skin tightening, and VASERlipo is used to melt away fat with ultrasound energy.
A fat transfer breast augmentation is a way to increase breast size after volume is lost due to breastfeeding. Instead of involving implants, this breast enhancement procedure uses VASERlipo to harvest excess fat from trouble areas like the abdomen. The purified fat cells are then inserted into the breasts for augmentation.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are healthy moms who want to restore a younger physique through surgical procedures. Since future pregnancies can reverse the cosmetic results of a mommy makeover, people considering a mommy makeover must not be interested in future pregnancies. (Note: A mommy makeover surgery will not negatively affect fertility.)
People with a BMI above 30 may need to lose weight in order to qualify for a mommy makeover; obesity can increase the likelihood of excessive bleeding during surgery and infections during healing.
It will be important to avoid smoking and drinking alcohol before the procedure and during the recovery process.
Your Mommy Makeover Consultation
A mommy makeover consultation will involve a conversation about your appearance goals and the amount of surgical work you are interested in undergoing. Dr. Hernandez will discuss the
mommy makeover process in detail, and you’ll be free to ask questions throughout the discussion.
Provide your complete medical history, including current prescriptions, to help determine whether a mommy makeover will be safe for you. Inform us of any allergies and past procedures. You may need to take lab tests to determine clotting time and bleeding time.
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
Your mommy makeover will begin with administering general anesthesia; since there will be multiple procedures, a mommy makeover patient will need to be unconscious for a more comfortable experience. The combination of procedures will then be performed.
The Mommy Makeover Recovery Process
Recovering from a mommy makeover should take one to four weeks. Securing transportation home from a friend or family member is vital. Patients with desk jobs can return to work in two to four weeks. Bruising and swelling will be present for a time, but will fade naturally. Post-surgical garments are often necessary to aid in recovery.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The total cost of a mommy makeover will depend on a number of factors, including total surgical time, anesthesia fees, and the techniques employed. Medical insurance will not cover the procedure, as it is purely cosmetic in nature. Please speak with our financing department to discuss available payment options.
