Plastic surgery should look natural.

Mommy Makeover Surgery San Antonio

Are you a new mom insecure about your new postpartum body? Do you long for your flat stomach and stretch-mark-free curves? Do you want to feel and look more like you did before having kids? If so, a mommy makeover surgery may be for you.

Dr. Elizabeth Harris specializes in helping women get their bodies back after having kids by offering the mommy makeover procedure and individual procedures that can target your problem areas.

Based in San Antonio, Texas, Elizabeth Harris understands that a woman’s body undergoes major changes during and after pregnancy. From weight gain and stretched skin to hormonal changes and sagging breasts, the postpartum period can leave women feeling deflated and not very confident in their own skin. That’s why Elizabeth Harris has dedicated her career as a plastic surgeon to helping women feel more like themselves.

Mommy Makeover Evaluation

Before undergoing any type of mommy makeover surgery, you’ll sit down with Dr. Elizabeth Harris for an evaluation. During this time, you will determine what procedures will be incorporated into your mommy makeover and will be able to ask questions about costs, recovery, and what to expect with each procedure.

Mommy Makeover Procedure

One of the main things that make a mommy makeover so great is all the options available to choose from. From breast lifts and tummy tucks to liposuction and more, when you visit the office of Dr. Elizabeth Harris, you will be able to customize a makeover just for you. Some mommy makeover procedures that Elizabeth Harris specializes in include:

  • Breast Lift: This procedure is designed to restore sagging, stretched-out breasts to a more youthful, perky shape.
  • Breast Augmentation: If your breasts deflated a bit and became saggy after childbirth and breastfeeding, a breast augmentation procedure can add volume to them.
  • Tummy Tuck: This procedure is popular among moms because it removes excess, stretched-out skin left over from pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Liposuction: During and after pregnancy, many women struggle with losing stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction works to reduce stubborn fat, leaving you feeling more confident in your body.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Once you undergo a mommy makeover procedure, you’ll enter the recovery phase, which varies depending on what type of procedure you had done. Typically, bandages or gauze will be placed on any incisions. If you have a breast lift, you will likely be sent home with a support bra or elastic bandage to help minimize swelling and support your healing breasts. If you have a tummy tuck or liposuction done, chances are you will be sent home with a compression garment to help minimize swelling, as well.

In addition to a compression garment, Dr. Elizabeth Harris will educate you on how to care for the surgical site or sites and what medications are safe to take to help alleviate pain, improve healing, and protect against infection. While the duration of the healing period varies from person to person, thorough healing from a mommy makeover usually takes several weeks.

Mommy Makeover Pricing

Mommy makeover pricing varies on patient needs and the combination of procedures they elect to have. Elizabeth Harris will provide full pricing and insurance details during your evaluation.
