Having a baby changes your body in unexpected ways. Some women find themselves with deflated breasts after pregnancy, while others experience loose abdominal skin and excess fat in the hips and thighs. Whatever your changes, mommy makeover procedures may reverse them. Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery offers personalized treatments based on your needs and cosmetic goals.

If you would like to learn which treatments are offered in a mommy makeover, it is best to speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in a range of techniques. Call Dr. Phillip Dauwe in Dallas, TX to discuss your options.

Who should get body contouring

The purpose of a mommy makeover is to restore your pre-pregnancy appearance when it has been affected by pregnancy and childbirth. Other candidates may have lost a significant amount of weight and would like to complete their hard work through plastic surgery. While many people try to improve their contours with diet and exercise, they cannot address issues like loose skin and stubborn fat. The procedures chosen in a mommy makeover surgery are usually customized based on each person’s needs, including:

  • Loose skin

  • Excess skin

  • Loss of volume

  • Sagging breasts

  • Stubborn fat

  • Abdominal pouch

  • Diastasis recti

Mommy makeover procedures

Body contouring procedures are chosen during your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Dauwe. Our office will listen to your concerns and take a detailed medical history before making suggestions. Some patients are happy with one simple surgery, while others are interested in a more comprehensive solution to problem areas. Read about the specific treatments we offer in Dallas, TX:

  • Breast augmentation and lift: Pregnancy and breastfeeding change the overall size and shape of your breasts. They may even have a drooping appearance. These surgeries can increase the volume of your breasts and raise them to a higher position on the chest.

  • Breast reduction: Your breasts may increase in size after pregnancy to the point where you experience pain or discomfort. Breast reduction surgery can relieve this issue. Our clinic may also reposition the nipples and areolas during the procedure.

  • Liposuction: Remove excess fat from areas affected by pregnancy. This includes the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks for improved contours. Liposuction is often added to tummy tuck surgery to achieve smoother results.

  • Tummy tuck: Address sagging skin and fat in the abdomen through a tummy tuck. Dr. Dauwe can also tighten the underlying muscles to address problems associated with diastasis recti.
