Mommy Makeover in Dallas, TX

Nothing compares to the joy and satisfaction of becoming a mother. Even the physical changes that naturally occur with each pregnancy can be amazing to experience. However, due to hormonal and bodily changes, moms can be left with loose skin and stubborn fat that is impossible to address with diet and exercise alone.

Dr. William Carpenter consistently delivers beautiful results that last 10 years or more when combined with proper diet and exercise. Dr. Carpenter will evaluate your physique and determine the most appropriate procedures and techniques to help you accomplish your cosmetic goals and create a post-baby body you will feel proud of.

Common Physical Changes Pregnancy Can Cause

Abdomen – The abdominal skin and muscles experience tremendous stretching during pregnancy, and many women find it difficult to regain a toned midsection. Stretch marks (striae) are another permanent indication of pregnancy or dramatic weight loss.

Hips – The hips may become looser and fuller due to the same changes that occur in the abdominal area.

Breasts – Breasts tend to change permanently due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. The enlargement of the breasts to accommodate milk production, followed by shrinkage once a mom finishes nursing, causes laxity (sagging) of the breasts.

Many women seek plastic surgery for unwanted physical changes to restore a smoother and more youthful figure.

A Mommy Makeover involves two or more procedures to lift and enhance the breasts and abdominal area.

Mommy Makeover options may include:

“Being in the hands of a skilled plastic surgery brings a confidence and surety that is hard to explain. For me, plastic surgery was a big step. Friends asked me, “are you scared?” My answer was “no!” “I’m excited!” Now, after the surgery, I am still excited…getting used to the new me! Dr. Carpenter is terrific and I would certainly recommend him to family and friends!”

How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?

Mommy Makeover surgery is performed under general anesthesia by qualified and experienced M.D. anesthesiologists in a state-of-the-art and accredited surgery center that specializes in outpatient care and offers overnight care when needed.

The surgical process will vary depending on the extent of correction needed and the agreed-upon treatment areas. Dr. Carpenter and his team will be able to provide you with more detailed descriptions during your consultation.

Dr. Carpenter will work on one body area at a time to ensure balance and harmony between your final results. Since a Mommy Makeover involves two or more surgical techniques, you can expect your Mommy Makeover to take several hours to complete.

What Happens After a Mommy Makeover?

After your surgery, dressings and compression garments are placed, and you will be transferred to a private recovery room with one-on-one nursing care.

Most Mommy Makeover patients who receive a full abdominoplasty and breast enhancement typically stay overnight for optimal comfort and extended care.

If you stay overnight, you can expect a post-op visit from Dr. Carpenter the following morning. Incisions are evaluated, and dressings and garments may be changed. Once you are released, a friend or relative must drive you home and should assist you with postoperative recovery for the first 24 to 48 hours. You will not be able to drive yourself.

What Is Recovery Like After Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Some discomfort is expected and can be managed with prescription medication as well as the use of the recommended compression garments.

Swelling may persist for several weeks after surgery. Most non-physically demanding activities and work can be resumed after two weeks; however, patients must refrain from performing strenuous exercises and activities for six weeks or longer.
