The Mommy Makeover Procedure: What to Expect  

During a Mommy Makeover in San Antonio at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery, the procedure typically involves combining surgical techniques to address various areas affected by pregnancy and childbirth. The surgery, administered under general anesthesia for your comfort, often begins with breast enhancement procedures, such as breast augmentation or breast lift, to restore volume and reshape the breasts. Subsequently, attention is directed to the abdominal region, where a tummy tuck may be performed to tighten abdominal muscles and eliminate excess skin. Liposuction may also be employed to sculpt and contour areas with stubborn fat deposits, enhancing overall body contours. The procedure duration varies based on the specific combination of surgeries, ranging from a few hours to a full day. We ensure a meticulous and personalized approach, minimizing discomfort and optimizing your results.

Mommy Makeover Procedures

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a key element of Mommy Makeovers, designed to restore breast size and shape post-pregnancy. This relatively brief surgical procedure utilizes implants or fat transfer to enhance the overall appearance. The choice of implant types, including saline, silicone, or gummy bear implants, allows for customization based on individual preferences and goals. Dr. Baumholtz's expertise ensures optimal results, whether you seek a subtle enhancement or a more pronounced transformation.

Breast Lift

For women experiencing a loss of breast volume and changes in nipple position following pregnancy or weight loss, a breast lift can be transformative. This procedure involves the removal of excess skin, tightening surrounding tissues, and reshaping the breasts to achieve an uplifted contour. When combined with other procedures like breast augmentation, the results can be a fuller and perkier bustline, contributing to a rejuvenated overall appearance.


Liposuction is crucial in Mommy Makeovers, targeting stubborn fat deposits resistant to traditional weight loss efforts. Commonly applied to areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms, liposuction helps sculpt and refine body contours. Dr. Baumholtz employs advanced techniques and emphasizes the importance of postoperative compression garments to facilitate optimal healing, reduce swelling, and enhance overall results.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

The tummy tuck procedure, or abdominoplasty, is a cornerstone of Mommy Makeovers, offering dramatic results in restoring a pre-pregnancy body. This multi-step process involves anesthesia for comfort, an incision strategically placed for minimal visibility, repair of separated abdominal muscles, removal of excess skin, and repositioning of the belly button for a natural appearance.

Our team always prioritizes your comfort, providing detailed post-op care guidelines to support optimal healing. We advise you to take it easy in the first few days, gradually easing back into light activities and work within two weeks.
