Introduction to

Mommy Makeover

A woman’s body goes through so many changes after becoming pregnant. From a scientific stance, it’s incredibly fascinating how the human body can change in nine months, and that it can contain and raise another human being. If you look at the aftermath though, many mothers feel like their body has been warped and in some scenarios, even looking completely different than what they remember less than a year ago. At Avante Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ahmad Ahmadi strives to help his Houston Mommy Makeover surgery patients achieve their pre-baby body or even the body they’ve always wanted. To learn more about the variety of procedures that make up a “mommy makeover” and decide if it’s right for you, please keep reading below.

A Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic surgery that utilizes multiple procedures that help women regain their pre-pregnancy body, or even improve upon it. Most women in Houston receiving this procedure focus on three main areas to achieve tighter bodies, which can include breast implants, improve abdominal muscles, and removal of stubborn fat and excess skin. A mommy makeover typically involves:

Not every patient will require each one of these cosmetic procedures to achieve their ideal body. Dr. Ahmadi will only suggest surgeries that match your individual goals and needs, and of course, he will only perform the ones that you agree to.

What’s the first step for a

Mommy Makeover

If you’re interested in getting a Mommy Makeover procedure in Houston at Avante Plastic Surgery, the first step is to schedule a consultation. In your initial appointment, Dr. Ahmadi will evaluate your health and explain which surgical procedures and techniques are most appropriate for you. He will listen to your expectations and aesthetic goals for your mommy makeover. He will examine your body and describe your best options, including the risks and limitations of each procedure. It’s important to tell Dr. Ahmadi if you smoke and if you’re taking any medications, vitamins, or other drugs.

Dr. Ahmadi will explain the type of anesthesia he will use, the facility where the surgery will be performed, and the costs involved. Before you leave, our Patient Coordinator will give you instructions to prepare weeks prior to surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications.

What to Expect on the Day of Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover patients will have a different experience depending on the specific procedures they have elected to undergo. Dr. Ahmadi uses general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to ensure a comfortable and painless surgical experience, which will be decided on during your consultation.

The nature of your Mommy Makeover will determine what you can expect during the surgery. Below, we’ve outlined some of the more common procedures:

Mommy Makeover Recovery

After your Mommy Makeover surgery, Dr. Ahmadi will have his staff keep an eye on you until he feels you are free to go. Since a mommy makeover is an outpatient procedure, once you are released, it is important to have someone available to drive you home, as you may feel a bit groggy and sore after the procedure. It’s also beneficial to have a helper available to assist with any basic tasks and avoid putting any strain on the incisions or treatment area.

Dr. Ahmadi will prescribe pain medication to minimize discomfort during recovery. Your recovery period will vary from patient to patient and will be detailed during your consultation. We recommended taking this time to recover, relax, and enjoy healing as much as possible; as a mother, you don’t get this opportunity very often!

How Much Does Mommy Makeover Cost in Houston, TX?

The cost of a Mommy Makeover in Houston is determined by numerous factors, but most specifically, which combination of procedures you are getting. After discussing your goals with Dr. Ahmadi during your consultation, he will create the outline for your surgery and our Patient Coordinator will use that information to provide you with a price breakdown.

Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not consider a mommy makeover to be medically necessary, so carriers typically will not cover the cost of this procedure.
