Mommy Makeover in The Woodlands, TX
Becoming a mother is often the most fulfilling and rewarding role a woman can play in her lifetime and involves a great deal of sacrifice. One often unavoidable result of pregnancy and breastfeeding is the effect this has on the body.
The good news about undesirable changes to your figure due to motherhood is the options you have to help restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape.
While aesthetic concerns caused by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding may be distressing, they can be addressed with a combination of cosmetic surgical procedures called a Mommy Makeover.
Dr. Kronowitz offers Mommy Makeover surgery for mothers (whether your children are still young or they have already left the nest) in The Woodlands, Texas.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover addresses many of the tell-tale signs of pregnancy including:
- Sagging, deflated breasts
- Accumulation of fat deposits or difficulty losing weight around the tummy
- Loose, stretched-out skin
Good candidates for Mommy Makeovers are women who are unhappy with the effects childbearing has had on their bodies, are in good health, don’t smoke, and aren’t planning to give birth again in the future.
Mommy Makeover surgery is not only reserved for mothers. Any woman who desires to address multiple areas at once — whether due to weight loss or age — may be candidates for this combination procedure in The Woodlands, Texas.
As with any surgery, smoking or using any tobacco product significantly increases your risks of serious complications during or after a Mommy Makeover, and becoming pregnant after this procedure can adversely affect your results.
What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a highly customized combination of surgical procedures designed to achieve:
- Full, firm, and youthful appearing breasts
- A flatter abdomen and a slimmer waist
- Elimination of loose skin around the abdomen

What Is Involved in a Mommy Makeover?
Volume loss and sagging of the breasts are common after childbirth and breastfeeding due to an increase in breast size and fluctuations due to breastfeeding. Cosmetic breast surgery can restore the breasts’ firmness, fullness, and youthfulness.
A Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthesia and typically involves two or three of the following procedures:
Breast augmentation – Saline or silicone breast implants are placed over or under the breast muscle (according to your preference and Dr. Kronowitz’s recommendation) to restore volume in breasts that have lost fullness due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Implant shape and texture options are also available.
Breast lift – Women who are content with the size of their breasts but concerned with drooping or downward-pointing nipples often choose a breast lift for younger-looking, firmer breasts. This procedure includes the removal of excess skin, tightening breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple-areola complex.
Breast revision – Women with breast implants that are now sagging or have changed shape due to pregnancy or weight loss can opt for breast revision to regain the firm and voluptuous breasts they used to have.
Fat Transfer to Breasts
Fat transfer to breast – This technique involves the extraction of fat from another area of your body and injection into the breast to provide fullness without needing implants.
Tummy tuck – Pregnancy often causes abdominal muscles to weaken and skin to stretch, which results in a protruding belly and loose skin. Tummy tuck surgery recontours the midsection by tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess fat and skin.
Liposuction – Liposuction eliminates pockets of fat that can develop on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, and back. This procedure involves loosening the targeted fat and then using suction to remove it.
During your consultation, Dr. Kronowitz will listen carefully to your aesthetic concerns and goals, examine you to evaluate these issues, and recommend the most appropriate procedures to help you achieve the results you desire.
What Else Can Be Included in a Mommy Makeover?
While cosmetic breast surgery, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery are the most common procedures included in a Mommy Makeover, the following surgeries can also be beneficial for women who want to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies:
A lower body lift or a thigh lift can address fat pockets and loose skin on the lower back, buttocks, hips, and thighs.
Women who are unhappy with the appearance of their labia after childbirth can also benefit from a labiaplasty. This procedure reduces the size of the inner vaginal lips and restores symmetry when desired.
What Will My Mommy Makeover Recovery Be Like?
The Mommy Makeover is performed as an outpatient procedure, and patients can typically return home to start their recovery the same day. You will need someone to drive you to and from your surgery and help you with any necessary chores, cooking, and childcare.
You will be wrapped in compression garments after surgery. You must continue to wear these to protect the incisions, increase blood circulation, control bruising, and reduce swelling.
Prescription pain medicine will be provided to manage post-operative discomfort.
Because a Mommy Makeover involves multiple surgeries, expect to be off work for at least two weeks. Non-strenuous activities can typically be resumed sooner, but avoid heavy lifting or vigorous exercise for at least six weeks or cleared by Dr. Kronowitz.
When Will I See My Mommy Makeover Results?
You should start to see changes immediately after surgery, but significant swelling and bruising will likely obscure the initial results.
Most bruising and swelling will subside within a few weeks, and you will be able to appreciate your results, but some degree of swelling can persist for up to six months.
Your Mommy Makeover results are long lasting. However, future pregnancies or subsequent fluctuation in weight can affect the quality of your results.
How Much Will My Mommy Makeover Cost Near The Woodlands, TX?
