Mommy Makeover in Fort Bend, TX

Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery provides Mommy Makeovers for women of Fort Bend and Houston, Texas. New mothers often utilize the Mommy Makeover following childbirth because they find that they are unsuccessful in recovering their figure with diet and exercise alone.

Breast augmentation is a key aspect of a Mommy Makeover. Dr. Stapenhorst may use either silicone or saline implants during your procedure. Silicone implants and saline implants both use silicone shells, but silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, while saline implants contain saline fluid. Following your breast augmentation, you may also want to take advantage of a breast lift. The breast lift will raise the nipple on the breast, giving the breast both lift and heightened shape.

How Does Dr. David Stapenhorst Perform The Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeovers are completed with the use of general anesthetic, so the patient is asleep throughout the procedure. Dr. Stapenhorst makes incisions within the fold of the breast or in the areola in order to insert the implant into the breast cavity. The incision location may be altered depending on the needs of each patient. Dissolving stitches are used, so there is no need for stitch removal. When a liposuction procedure or a tummy tuck is included in the procedure, additional incisions and stitches will also be included.

When Can Normal Activities Resume After the Mommy Makeover Procedure?

The recovery process will depend on the complexity and the number of makeover procedures that have been completed by Dr. Stapenhorst. The doctor usually asks that patients restrict daily activities for at least five days following their surgery. Sleeping on the stomach must be avoided for three weeks. Exercise and lifting over 10 pounds must be restricted for six weeks. Most patients are able to return to desk jobs after two weeks.
