What is a Mommy Makeover?
Even though childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment for a woman, it often changes the tightness and shape of various body parts— which can be frustrating. This most commonly involves stubborn fat and sagging, loose skin in the stomach, breasts, legs, and buttocks.
However, it is possible to reclaim a tighter, slimmer figure thanks to a personalized mommy makeover performed by Dr. Otto Huertas at Dallas Cosmetic Center. The mommy makeover is a customized treatment plan that can include a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (tummy) — basically, any body part affected by weight gain, childbirth, or nursing. Nonsurgical procedures can also be incorporated to reduce skin problems or stretch marks from pregnancy. To learn more about how a mommy makeover can help you remake your look, contact our Dallas, TX office today to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Huertas.

"Everybody in this office is courteous and make you feel comfortable. They answer all of the question you might have about any procedure!

"Dr. Huertas is a very kind and knowledgable doctor. I’m very happy to have found him. He does biodentical hormone replacement and other cosmetic procedures that most gynecologists don’t do. He also takes most insurance options. 5 stars!!! 👏👏👏👏👏"- A.M. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I had a great experience with Dr. Huertas and his staff. He preformed 360 lipo on me and I’m now 1 day post op. I had a massage done with an independent massage therapist and they raved about my first day results! I will update this if anything changes. I would recommend this doctor!"- C.O. / Google / Jan 28, 2021

am i a candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are individuals who have undergone childbearing, and have worked to get a toned, slimmer appearance through regular exercise and a healthy diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is needed to regain their pre-pregnancy body. If you have completed childbearing and are unhappy with the remaining effects on your body, such as deflated, sagging breasts, stretch marks, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or unwanted fat in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could be perfect for you.
No two patients are the same because the mommy makeover combines the best of our cosmetic procedures to help restore a youthful, pre-pregnancy body and enhance sexual gratification. The goal of Dr. Huertas is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy figure with a personalized plan so you can get back to living life without additional concerns about your body.
How does a Mommy Makeover work?
A mommy makeover is a body contouring surgery custom-tailored by Dr. Huertas based on each patient's unique needs and aesthetic concerns. Many procedures can be paired together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast augmentation, and tummy tuck surgery. All of these procedures are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours based on the number of treatments. In addition, a day-long stay at the hospital may be needed. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical skin procedures, such as dermal filler injections or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and reduce surface imperfections.
Dr. Huertas can also include vaginal rejuvenation to revitalize function and enhance sexual enjoyment.
how long is recovery after a mommy makeover?
Once discharged, you'll start your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. This phase is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be difficult for the first few days. You should carefully follow all at-home care protocols following your procedure. For most women, the healing process can last about six months. Even though a full recovery could take months, the majority of patients are able to resume a normal routine within several weeks. You should wait to work out for about two months. In the end, the mommy makeover by Dr. Huertas can make an incredible impact. We want you to love the way you look and feel once again!
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
In your initial consultation with Dr. Huertas, he will listen to your wants and needs before examining your body. Then, he can make suggestions about what to include in your mommy makeover plan. Often, women include breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both), vaginal rejuvenation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover can help to give you a rejuvenated figure, it does include surgical scars. Dr. Huertas will make clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars that result from this surgery should be able to be covered with undergarments or swimsuits. When reviewing your post-surgical instructions, Dr. Huertas or a member of his team will go over post-op care so your stitches heal properly.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until after completing all pregnancies so as not to compromise the surgical results. Generally, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you have another child after your mommy makeover, then we can perform another surgery.
