What is Mommy Makeover?

Helping You Regain Your Pre-Baby Body

A custom mommy makeover is a customizable set of procedures designed to help women regain their pre-baby body. These combination body procedures may consist of breast surgery such as augmentation, lift (with or without augmentation), or reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction. This combination of plastic surgery procedures is typically tailored to each individual’s needs and personal cosmetic goals.

After giving birth and breastfeeding, many women experience changes in their bodies that can lead to dissatisfaction with their appearance. Changes in breast shape and volume are often a common concern for women after breastfeeding. Although a healthy diet and regular exercise can help new moms lose their baby weight, weight fluctuations and weight gain during pregnancy can leave stubborn pockets of fat and loose skin that persist.

If diet and exercise aren’t enough, mommy makeover surgery can help a woman restore her pre-baby body. To learn more about the custom mommy makeover in Houston with Dr. Vitenas, contact us to set up your consultation today. It’s the perfect time to start planning your surgery.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidate for this transformative journey will be in generally good health, at or near their ideal body weight, and a nonsmoker. While the body procedures will not interfere with future pregnancy or childbirth, it is recommended that she has completed her family as subsequent pregnancies can reverse the benefits of the surgery.

Medical professionals suggest waiting at least six months after childbirth or the cessation of breast feeding before considering the surgery. This is because the body shape returns to normal gradually after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Vitenas will discuss the ideal time for your custom mommy makeover and will help you set realistic expectations for your experience and final results.

Potential Risks

The potential risks can vary from patient to patient, and depend on the nature of the surgical options chosen. As with any plastic surgery procedure, there is always a risk of complications, including infection, and exposure to anesthesia. To prioritize patient safety and minimize these risks, it’s crucial to follow all post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Vitenas and his team. Furthermore, choosing an experienced surgeon like Dr. Vitenas, with significant expertise in these surgeries, gives you the reassurance of being in safe hands

Cost Analysis

The average cost of the custom mommy makeover depends on the type and extent of the procedures included. Typically, it covers facility fees, anesthesia fees, and other surgical costs, depending on individual aesthetic goals. Consulting with Dr. Vitenas at his Houston office is the best way to obtain an accurate cost estimate. During this consultation, he will discuss all of your financing options and provide an itemized cost list. Note, however, that the procedure’s cost should not be the primary deciding factor, but rather your aesthetic goals and desired outcome.

Procedures Involved in a
Mommy makeover

Each mommy makeover is performed in one of Dr. Vitenas’ private surgical suites at the Houston Surgery Center. General anesthesia will be provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The surgery will take from two to four hours, depending on which areas of the body are to be treated and the procedures included.

Breast Augmentation

During pregnancy, the breasts enlarge and then deflate. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves the use of breast implants to enhance the size, shape, and volume of the chest. This change is often more noticeable when combined with breastfeeding. During the procedure, a woman can choose to increase her breast size or maintain the same size while improving the overall shape. Dr. Vitenas will help you explore your options during your consultation.

Breast Lift With or Without Augmentation

A common issue after childbirth and breastfeeding is sagging breasts. A breast lift or mastopexy can be performed to lift and tighten stretched and sagging breasts and restore their youthful shape. The procedure involves removing excess skin then tightening the surrounding breast tissue, lifting the breast and creating a perky chest. When combined with a breast augmentation, these two techniques will add additional volume and lift the chest.

Breast Reduction

After pregnancy, a woman may develop large breasts that ultimately lead to issues such as back pain, neck pain, bra strap irritation, breathing challenges, and skin irritation. A breast lift can be added to a mommy makeover to achieve an improved breast contour, reduced nipple size, and create breasts more proportionate to the body.

Tummy Tuck

Pregnancy and breast feeding can result in drooping breasts. Various surgical interventions can address these changes. Breast augmentation can enhance the size, shape, and volume of the breasts, while a breast lift can restore the youthful appearance of sagging breasts. In some cases, breast reduction might be necessary to alleviate physical discomfort from overly large breasts. These surgeries can also address breast symmetry issues.


Pregnancy can leave deposits of fat in many places, including a woman’s hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. Even with a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine, these fatty deposits can be difficult to address. Liposuction will sculpt the figure, eliminating these fat deposits. Dr. Vitenas recommends liposuction for women who are at a normal (or at least stable) weight with good skin so the tissues can bounce back into shape.

Recovery Process

The recovery period from the makeover typically takes about two weeks. During the healing process, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. A compression garment worn post-surgery assists in reducing swelling and facilitating the healing time.

Help from a friend or family member during the first week of recovery is beneficial for managing normal activities such as driving and household chores. Most patients are able to return to work within two weeks and resume regular exercise schedules within four to six weeks.
