What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy can cause your body to change with extra tissue, stretch marks and sagging skin. Our Houston Mommy Makeover procedure is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that can help you get your pre-baby body back. Dr. Wiener performs mommy makeover surgery for patients in Houston and the surrounding areas of Pearland and League City, Texas. It can include:
Am I a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover in Houston?
Mommy makeovers in Houston are designed to reverse the physical changes associated with childbearing and aging. However, each area of the body needs to be evaluated on its own. For example, you might need breast implants, but not a lift.
If you’re healthy and have positive expectations for the surgery, a mommy makeover may be right for you. Candidates for a mommy makeover typically have:
- Sagging, uneven breasts, with decreased volume
- Drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the dark skin around the nipple)
- Unproportionate, larger breasts that cause back pain
- Areas of fat hanging over a C-section region with a visible scar
- Loose skin and stretch marks around the tummy and waistline
- “Love-handles” and excess fat in the hips and thighs
- Signs of premature aging in the face and around the eyes
When is the best time for a Mommy Makeover?
Patients typically choose surgery once they have finished pregnancy and decided to no longer have children. If you are done having children and you have achieved a stable weight, you should consider a mommy makeover. The timing of your procedure is important as dramatic weight gain or loss after surgery may diminish the final result.
How long is the recovery for a Mommy Makeover?
Your recovery time will vary depending on the type of surgeries and what areas of the body you address. Dr. Wiener will typically not combine these operations because of increased risks. In most cases, patients from Pearland and League City can expect full recovery between four and six weeks.
Where will the incisions be located for my Mommy Makeover?
After your Houston mommy makeover surgery, you will have scars from the incisions. However, they will be strategically located to be hidden under your clothes. Most scars will remain red for 9 months, but will ultimately fade over time.
What results can I expect from a Mommy Makeover in Houston?
After mommy makeover surgery, you can expect results with each region addressed. Plastic surgery cannot stop normal aging, but with the exception of another pregnancy or dramatic weight gain, your results should be permanent. Any breast implants used during the procedure eventually may need replacement. It’s important to return to Dr. Wiener’s office in Houston, Texas, for a follow-up evaluation.

His office is conveniently located in Clear Lake and 11 miles South of Pasadena, TX.
