Mommy Makeover Austin
Women today are proving they can still look and feel young through a transformation known as a Mommy Makeover. This surgery combines multiple fat removal, skin lifting, and tightening techniques to correct the physical effects of childbearing by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Candidates for this surgery are women, who cannot achieve their pre-pregnancy physique with diet and exercise alone. Simply put, they are not able to “fix” certain body parts. At Austin Plastic Surgery Institute, we make individualized treatment plans for each patient, which commonly involves breast and abdomen surgery. Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body, but we can help reverse the damage at Austin PSI with our high quality surgery.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
“I am also a repeat client of Dr. Gorman. I saw him for the first time almost 17 years ago for a breast aug/lift. I went back 10 years later for another as I had been pregnant and needed another lift. He did an amazing job and I wish I had done the full mommy makeover! I saw him again a few weeks ago and will be scheduling my fully mommy makever. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. He is great. His bedside manner is great. His work is great. He isn't the cheapest doctor in town but you get what you pay for.”

“I'm a young mother, and my husband and I decided we were finished having babies. SO, next plan was to get a mommy makeover–YES!! I visited with Dr. Haydon, and he recommended liposuction for body contouring- I did not have enough muscle protrusion to need a tummy tuck. Discussing breast surgery, he recommended a breast augmentation with a lift. I was kind of on the border with needing a lift, but he showed me my possible results on the 3D Vectra, and I was able to see the difference. It also helped me decide what size of implant I was comfortable with- I wasn't interested in being too large, just wanted to restore fullness and position after nursing a baby. The surgery was so simple-not at all what I expected, I was up and around in 2 days. I am about 6 months out, and super happy with everything. My breasts are back to perky, and fuller than before. Dr. Haydon and his staff were extremely helpful through the entire process from beginning to end. I never felt like just another patient, they made sure to focus on my questions and worries. Who isn't nervous when it comes to surgery?!”

“Dr. Haydon and his team surpassed all of my expectations throughout the entire process of my mommy makeover! His resources and methods were beyond impressive and premier. I fully knew what to expect before my procedure, and the results were exactly as we had anticipated!! I went into my consultation very nervous and almost embarrassed to seek surgery to help restore my body after weight loss and baring children. Dr. Haydon empowered me and instilled confidence that my efforts from hard work in both my diet and exercise would finally be honored through the results of my mommy makeover, and he has absolutely been right! My results only get more enhanced as I continue to live out my desired healthy and strong lifestyle! I am so incredibly thankful for every ounce of care, compassion, and quality Dr. Haydon and his team bestowed on me.”

“Dr. Gorman is knowledgeable, understanding, talented, and experienced. After 4 births it was time for me to get my body back. I went to 3 different physicians before talking to Dr. G and in the end he was a perfect fit. He has been doing all types of procedures for a very long time and you can tell he is a humble and generous man who has seen it all. I went forward with my tummy tuck surgery and my husband and I could not be happier. His staff is amazing and Margaret who is his nurse/patient coordinator, will be like a big sister for you throughout the whole process. Two thumbs up!”

The mommy makeover procedure is uniquely tailored to each patient depending on what body part they want to improve. In most cases, the breasts and tummy are addressed together (though not always). The conditions addressed during surgery, and the surgical technique used will vary.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Loss of volume and/or breast tissue, sagging and/or drooping, excess skin (ptosis), breasts that have become too large.
- Surgeries to consider: Breast augmentation with implants, breast lift, breast augmentation with a lift, breast reduction surgery.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Excess fat and/or persistent bulge in the abdomen, sagging and loose skin, stretch marks and other unsightly skin irregularities.
- Surgeries to consider: Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction of the abdomen.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Sagging skin and excess fat in the buttocks, hips and thighs.
- Surgeries to consider: Lower body lift including liposuction and skin tightening of the buttocks, hips and thighs.
All mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. Depending on how many techniques are combined, the surgery could last multiple hours. It is common for patients to have a short hospital stay with this surgery. Most women will require a full month to recover, but many will be able to return to work within 2 weeks. The results will reveal themselves in multiple stages as the breast implants settle into their natural placement and the incisions begin to heal. It generally takes a full year for all of the changes to make their final appearance.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Is It Safe?
There are always risks to consider when contemplating surgery. When procedures are combined, those risks can increase. Therefore, it is important to find an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in performing multiple procedures in one setting. Ultimately, a combination procedure can have numerous benefits, including only having to undergo surgery once — which means only one recovery and one fee.
What if I get Pregnant?
In a perfect world, women would wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur.
What About Stretch Marks?
If stretch marks exist on an area of the body (i.e. breast, tummy, etc.) that is going to be lifted and tightened, they may be removed when the excess skin is trimmed away. For any stretch marks left behind, as well as any other skin irregularities that may exist, there are skin-rejuvenating techniques that can help fade and remove these imperfections.
Will I Have Scars?
Scarring will occur with almost any cosmetic procedure. However, every effort is made to place and close the incisions carefully so that scarring is minimized. Scarring eventually fades into faint lines and can be concealed by undergarments and bathing suits. Most patients feel that the physical results following a mommy makeover far outweigh the scarring left behind.
