Giving birth to a child can be an incredibly joyful occasion. However, the aftermath of pregnancy can have undesirable effects on a woman’s body, leaving excess folds of skin and fat, deflated breasts, and many other unwanted issues. Unfortunately, implementing an exercise regimen and a healthier diet may not be enough to eliminate many post-pregnancy problems, and many women feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about their bodies. With a Mommy Makeover, your body can be transformed to improve your curves by addressing troublesome areas such as your breasts, stomach, and love handles. By combining multiple techniques into one procedure, the Mommy Makeover can simultaneously enhance your breast and body contours to provide a more defined figure. It probably helps that Dr. Friedman is a true artist who has been sculpting wood and marble for decades.

In addition to before and after pictures of the abdomen and breasts, we are also showing photos of the markings of the breasts (skin and breast tissue to be removed), abdomen (skin to be removed from the belly button to the pubic region, including the depressed midline scar), and hips and flanks (fat to be suctioned).
The postoperative photos were taken 10 weeks after surgery. These demonstrate perky D cup breasts, a waist that is 4 inches slimmer, and a flat abdomen.
Women seeking a Mommy Makeover should be in good health, have realistic expectations for their results, and be finished with childbearing. Common complaints addressed by the procedure include excessive skin or fat, breasts that appear flat or deflated, and overall dissatisfaction with body shape. In most cases, it is recommended that mothers finish breastfeeding and reach their planned long-term weight before undergoing a Mommy Makeover.
The Mommy Makeover Process
Every Mommy Makeover is tailored to the patient’s desired outcome and takes her body type and other factors into consideration. Breast and body contouring are performed under general anesthesia administered exclusively by physician anesthesiologists in our nationally accredited surgery center, the West Plano Plastic Surgery Center. Many techniques are available and will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Friedman in order to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Your Mommy Makeover may include any of the following procedures.
- Breast Augmentation: This procedure provides volume and fullness to breasts as well as enhanced cleavage.
- Breast Lift: Also known as mastopexy, this technique lifts the breasts and reshapes them to a more pleasing, symmetric appearance. Patients benefit from this procedure if they are experiencing breast sagging, nipples that point downward, or asymmetry. Frequently breast lift and breast augmentation are combined.
- Breast Reduction: Women with overly large breasts often suffer from back, neck, and shoulder pain due to excess weight on the chest. This procedure reduces the size and drooping of the breasts while simultaneously improving the troublesome symptoms.
- Liposuction: This technique removes excess fat from specific areas of the body. The most common areas include the abdomen, love handles, hips, and thighs. If you have troublesome fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise, then liposuction may be worth considering.
- Tummy Tuck: Mini or full tummy tuck surgery can provide a flatter, more contoured abdomen. A tummy tuck is best for women with excess skin or an abdomen that still protrudes after pregnancy.

After your Mommy Makeover, your incisions will be closed with internal absorbable sutures, sealed with surgical glue, and covered with gauze and tape. A compression garment will be used for tummy tucks and liposuction to provide comfort and support during your recovery. Heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided after surgery. You should arrange for your significant other or a family member to help care for you after surgery, and you will need help with childcare. As you recover, swelling and bruising will subside, and you will be able to enjoy your improved contours.
Your custom Mommy Makeover can provide more defined body contour such as fuller breasts, a tighter abdomen, and a better waistline. As your clothing fits better and your curves are restored, we hope that you will feel more like your pre-pregnancy self and that your confidence will soar.
