About the Mommy Makeover
Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright meets with women frequently who want their pre-pregnancy shape back. Even though childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it usually does alter the look, shape, and size of various body parts and can leave one feeling frustrated on how to make physical improvements. The great news is that it is possible to once again attain a youthful, slimmer, tighter figure thanks to the help of the mommy makeover surgery performed at Albright Plastic Surgery. This surgery uses a blend of fat removal and skin tightening to target both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (such as the tummy) — basically any area affected by weight gain or nursing can be addressed. In addition, nonsurgical treatments can be used to correct surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, due to the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin during pregnancy.
The right candidates for this surgery are individuals who have gone through childbearing and who have worked to achieve a toned, slimming appearance through a clean diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is needed to attain their pre-pregnancy body. If you have completed childbearing but you are displeased with the effects left behind, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be perfect for you. The goal is to get back your pre-pregnancy body so you can resume life without feeling self-conscious.
"Dr. Albright has a kind, personable bedside manner and his staff are wonderful. He listened to my wants, concerns and needs and help me to make the best decision for me. He even took an extra hour answering all my questions to eliminate any fears I had. I couldn't be happier with the results and I highly recommend him to all my friends."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Feb 18, 2020
"Dr. Allbright is an intelligent, caring, and fantastic doctor! He genuinely listens to your concerns and he is very willing to work with you and whatever your needs are. I have heard a few people say that Dr. Allbright is young, So they are concerned with his skill level. My comment to that, Dr. Allbright was trained in the best technology possible and he is super amazing in his abilities. I would prefer Dr. Allbright to have me in surgery for 13 hours rather than someone that is twice his age. My results have been completely amazing and although my original reason to see him was because of a diagnosis of breast cancer, he has truly helped to enhance my life and has made the best of a bad situation. His entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and they are so very caring. Anytime I called with a question, One of his staff got with me very quickly. I cannot rave enough about this amazing person. He truly treats you as an individual and not at all as just another client. He actually remembers things from your last visit. He is one of a kind!!!"- J.L. / Google / Aug 02, 2019

Plan Your Procedure
what to expect
A mommy makeover is a unique treatment, tailored for women based on the specific body areas to be reshaped. Many procedures can be considered together; the most common treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia and could take between 3 – 7 hours based upon the number of treatments. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital may be needed. Your treatment plan might include nonsurgical methods, such as laser treatments and injectables, that can be applied to soften facial lines and decrease surface imperfections.
A mommy makeover is considered an invasive treatment and can cover a widespread range of the body. After a recovery period in the hospital, patients will begin their recovery at home with rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be hard the first few days, and a thorough home care protocol will be provided to make sure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most women find the recovery phase can take about six months. Even though the primary healing phase could take months, most patients are able to resume a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should wait for about two months. Regardless of recovery time, this surgery can be life changing for women, providing them with a renewed self-esteem once again.
