Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body – affecting the breast, stomach, legs, and more. From a cosmetic standpoint, Mommy Makeovers address pregnancy-related changes in both the breasts and the tummy. The most common procedures to combine with a Mommy Makeover include, but are not limited too, a tummy tuck and breast lift/enhancement.
Services offered with a Mommy Makeover:
- Tummy Tuck
- Breast Lift/Enhancement
- Fat Removal
- Skin Tightening
This surgery is optimal for women wanting to restore their body closer to a pre-pregnancy appearance. We recommend waiting a minimum of eight months post delivery in order to give optimal time for healing.
Candidates must have stopped breast-feeding before the procedures. We also suggest waiting until you are finished having children to allow for results to last.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)*
As much as we would all love to have that flat, well-toned abdomen we see in magazines and movies, the tummy does not always cooperate. A protruding or sagging abdominal region—due past pregnancies, and weight fluctuations—can negatively impact your confidence and self-esteem. Dieting, crunches and abdominal exercises can be helpful but will not necessarily provide the kind of firm, contoured abdomen we desire. Fortunately, a tummy tuck can reduce fatty tissue and tighten the area
About the Surgery
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal region. The procedure can help restore weakened or separated muscles in the region, as well, creating a firmer, more toned contour of the body.
The process begins with a consultation and evaluation session in which Dr. Hall will assess your case, talk to you about your goals, explain your options and determine the proper course of action.
The procedure involves an incision made between the pubic line and navel where excess fat and skin are removed and any needed muscle repair is accomplished. The length of the incision will vary based on the amount of fat and skin to be removed. A second incision around the navel may be required to remove excess skin. More dynamic results may be achieved by combining the procedure with liposuction, though this is a decision that should be made in consultation with your doctor. Changes will be immediately apparent, though overall results will become more defined over time. The procedure can take place in an office surgical facility or in a hospital, and is usually performed under general anesthesia
About Breast Implants/lift*
After pregnancy and breast feeding the breast can change in shape and volume. Therefore a woman’s breast needs to be evaluated in both of these areas for improvement. Depending upon the individual, restorative surgery can include an implant with or without added options. Your consultation will determine what is best for you.
If you’re considering breast augmentation, you want to talk to the experienced cosmetic surgeons at Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center of Austin, Texas. Our dedication to top-quality care and extensive cosmetic surgery experience helps you rest assured that you are in the most capable hands.
If you are dissatisfied with how your breasts look, either because they have always been too small or pregnancy has reduced their volume, you may be considering cosmetic enhancement. At Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center, we have helped many women improve their looks and boost their confidence through augmentation. We offer free initial consultations so that we can explain the procedure and make sure that you are good candidate. Everyone here does all we can to help you feel relaxed and comfortable at our center. We treat our patients right!
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and we will use either silicone breast implants or saline-filled shells to augment your breasts. Your body type, breast type and the results you desire will determine placement and size of the breast implant shells. You can be back to light-duty tasks the next day, and after about two weeks you can return to all normal activities. We will also schedule a follow-up visit to make sure that everything is healing well.

Naturally, you have questions—and the first one, only you can answer: How do you feel about yourself? Breast enlargement surgery enhances your appearance but the benefit is more personal. It is confidence in the way you carry yourself. It is having some control over body image that allows your inner beauty to shine.
Breast augmentation is a positive option for women who have a specific goal of improving their body image and a realistic vision of how it can enhance their lifestyle. It is for women who are uncomfortable with the unflattering fit of clothing or swimwear designed for a different body type. It is for women who seek to restore volume after weight loss or pregnancy.
About the Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery involves tightening and lifting the breasts with a series of incisions. There are a number of options but the most common procedure involves three incisions: one around the areola, a second that extends vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and a thir, horizontal incision along the breast crease. Excess skin is removed and the nipple and areola may be repositioned to achieve a natural height. The result is a firmer, reshaped breast with a more visually pleasing contour. Other items to note:
- A breast lift is not intended to enlarge the existing breast, though a breast implant may be inserted during an enlargement procedure in conjunction with the breast lift surgery
- The change will be evident immediately and results should improve as swelling subsides and the breasts take on a more balanced, natural appearance
- The procedure can also be used to reduce the size of an areola
