Mommy Makeover Options
True Form Breast Augmentation®
Breast augmentation is often performed when a patient experiences breast volume loss after pregnancy. During breast augmentation, Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Patronella replenishes lost volume and restores a shapely appearance to the breasts through the use of saline or silicone gel-filled implants. He utilizes detailed suturing techniques to enhance the shape and definition of the breasts, producing a pleasing and voluptuous aesthetic.Learn More
Breast Augmentation With Lift
Breast volume fluctuations during pregnancy and breastfeeding weaken the skin’s elasticity, causing the breasts to lose firmness and shapeliness. When combining this loss of breast volume with the effects of gravity and aging, many women are left with breasts that have a sagging, deflated appearance. By combining breast augmentation with breast lift techniques, Dr. Patronella reshapes and plumps the breasts to give them a lifted, youthful contour.Learn More
Breast Lift and Breast Reduction
Many women are bothered by breasts that are excessively large for their frames. The cumbersome weight of large breasts frequently causes a multitude of physical discomforts such as back, neck, and shoulder pain as well as skin irritation under the breasts. Dr. Patronella performs breast lift and breast reduction surgery to lighten and raise the breasts so that they are proportionate to the rest of the body. This procedure involves removing excess fat and skin and repositioning the remaining tissue to produce a more youthful, lifted look.Learn More

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for a Mommy Makeover procedure?
Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover are healthy and concerned about any of the following:
- Sagging or deflated breasts
- Stretch marks over the abdomen, hips, and breasts
- Excess abdominal skin
- A bulging tummy
- Stubborn fat deposits
Why should I undergo multiple body contouring procedures at the same time?
Because you pay a general anesthesia and surgical facility fee each time you have surgery, combining procedures into a single session allows you to save on these costs. A discounted surgeon’s fee is typically provided to patients when techniques are combined. In addition, you have just one recovery period, eliminating the additional recovery time that is required when procedures are performed in separate operations.
How long will my Mommy Makeover results last?
Mommy Makeover surgery is designed to produce lasting results as long as you lead a healthy, active lifestyle following your procedure. Becoming pregnant or experiencing significant weight changes after your surgery can alter or even reverse the effects.
Will I have scarring after my Mommy Makeover?
The incisions for Mommy Makeover procedures do leave scars. However, most incisions are carefully placed in areas that can be concealed with undergarments and bathing suits. Scars also tend to fade, especially if you follow Dr. Patronella’s Scar Therapy Program for up to one year after surgery. Avoiding direct sun exposure also helps scars blend into the surrounding tissue.
How soon after childbirth can I schedule my Mommy Makeover?
It is recommended that patients wait at least 3 months after childbirth to undergo a Mommy Makeover. During this time, she can recover from giving birth and achieve a healthier postpartum weight. Dr. Patronella also advises patients to schedule their Mommy Makeover when they plan to have no subsequent pregnancies.
