We provide procedures to clients near Arlington, Dallas & Fort Worth
What is a mommy makeover?
As a direct result of pregnancy, breast feeding, and childbirth, mothers may choose to undergo a Mommy Makeover surgery to simultaneously restore and rejuvenate their breasts and abdomen at the same time, by combining a tummy tuck with breast enhancement / breast rejuvenation surgery–with either a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction surgery. Following pregnancy, mothers can develop mild to moderate muscle laxity and weakness of their lower abdominal muscles (called a “pooch”), along with the development of stretch marks and loose, flabby skin. In addition, breasts may undergo size changes due to lactation-induced breast enlargement, which is then followed by atrophy and breast deflation. Luckily, modern advances in cosmetic plastic surgery can allow moms to undergo mommy make-over procedures to correct and rejuvenate both the stomach and breasts at the same time.

Mommy Makeover Surgery
The extent of the procedure is directly related to the amount of excess skin, fat and laxity of the underlying abdominal muscles and amount of breast atrophy and post-pregnancy deflation. In circumstances where there is minimal abdominal muscle weakness and minimal skin excess, a mini tummy tuck may be performed. In addition, for mothers requiring liposuction of the upper abdomen and sides, a lipo-abdominoplasty may provide optimal results to slim the waist and abdominal locations. The procedure for cosmetic breast restoration or breast enhancement is accomplished with breast augmentation, breast reduction, or a combination mastopexy breast lift with minimal scarring.
Mommy Makeover Cost
Dr. Thornton will complete a thorough medical history case evaluation and perform a careful examination of your breasts and abdomen to formulate a personal mommy makeover surgical plan that is best suited for your body anatomy. However, the typical cost is between $12,000-$18,000.
What can I expect during my consultation with Dr. Thornton?
During your mommy makeover surgery consultation, you will meet privately and exclusively with Dr. Michael Thornton where you will share in the decision-making process about your personal needs, desires, and expectations. Although well-qualified, we choose not to use patient coordinators, nurse practitioners, or physicians’ assistants to perform your consultation.
Can I get a mommy makeover near me? Where will surgery take place?
All mommy makeover surgical techniques are performed under general anesthesia at BaylorScott & White Surgicare at Mansfield, a AAAHC certified out-patient surgery center, located in Mansfield, Texas. Procedures take an average of 5-6 hours to complete, depending up the complexity of the case. For some clients, a tummy tuck and breast restoration can be performed in a single-staged operation. However, for clients having more complex cases, it may be necessary to separate the mommy makeover surgeries into two operations. This determination will be made on an individual basis.
In-Patient or Out-Patient Surgery?
All mommy makeover surgery procedures (tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast restoration) are performed as Out-Patient Surgery using general anesthesia, as provided by board-certified anesthesiologists at a certified and licensed AAAHC out-patient surgery center to ensure the highest level of patient comfort and safety. Following your surgery you will be discharged and will rest at home.
Mommy Makeover Recovery Time
Your mommy makeover recovery time will vary based on the types procedures performed, your body, and post surgery aftercare. We can provide you with a better timeline during your consultation, but patients generally need 7-10 days, with additional recovery needed at home for several weeks to a few months.
