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.

"From my first consultation to my follow up and post-surgical appointments, Dr. Albright and his staff couldn't have been more helpful in making sure my all of my questions and concerns were addressed. All the steps involved in the surgery and after the surgery were explained step by step and all questions were answered clearly and honestly. I knew exactly what to expect after my breast surgery and the follow up care was exceptional! I am now over 1 year out from my surgery and I love the way my breasts look and I feel less pain in my shoulders and back. I am more confident in my appearance now more than ever before. I wish I had done this surgery sooner. I completely trust Dr. Albright and now see him for all my aesthetic needs including Botox, Dysport and Fillers. He always makes me look natural and refreshed vs. “overdone”. I have referred several people in Houston to Dr. Albright for plastic surgery and they love him as much as I do!"- T.S. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
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.
