Question: I have had my last child and am ready for a “Mommy Makeover.” What is it and when will I know I am ready?
Dr. Kenkel answers: A mommy makeover here in Dallas typically involves performing procedures to enhance the breast shape, restore breast volume, and improve the contour of the abdomen and hips.
The procedure can vary from patient to patient and depends on things such as weight fluctuations during pregnancy as well as how many pregnancies you have had.
The most common procedure performed by our practice is an abdominoplasty with liposuction of the hips and breast augmentation with breast lift. Once you have had your last child it is important to achieve weight stability. We prefer to see patients after they have stopped breastfeeding for 3 months minimum. At that time we will discuss your expectations and goals and determine what procedure would be best for you. Additionally, it’s best if you’ve finished having children, as getting pregnant again later on can affect your results.
Mommy Makeover is incredibly popular because it’s almost completely customizable, and it can yield results that are truly transformative. We love walking prospective patients through each of their options and helping them plan their most beautiful outcomes.
