About the Mommy Makeover
Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, works with women frequently who wish to have their pre-pregnancy shape back. Even though childbirth is an outstanding moment for many women, it usually does alter the tightness and shape of various body parts, which can leave one feeling limited on how to make improvements naturally. The great news is that it is possible to reclaim a youthful, slimmer, tighter figure thanks to the help of the mommy makeover surgical procedure performed at Plastic Surgery of Houston. This body contouring treatment uses a blend of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to target both the upper body (arms and breasts), and lower (such as the tummy). Primarily any area affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc. can be repaired. In addition, nonsurgical remedies can be used to correct surface irregularities, such as skin problems or stretch marks, due to the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy.
The right candidates for body contouring and mommy makeover are individuals who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing and who have worked to get a toned, slimming appearance through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgery is recommended to attain their pre-pregnancy figure. If you have completed childbearing but you are displeased with the imperfections left behind, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could help you. The goal is to reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can resume life without additional concern about your body.
"I met Dr Shenaq when my best friend had breast cancer. He took so much time to carefully explain the procedure to her. I was so impressed with this surgeon that when I came down with breast cancer in my left breast I immediately made my appointment with Dr. Shenaq. I had a double skin sparing mastectomy with reconstruction, and yes this plastic surgeon did a phenomenal job! Dr. Shenaq and his staff took such good care of me, they are very understanding, and really care about you. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery. Westside surgical center is where my surgery took place. If you want phenomenal patient care, this is the place to be. Dr. Shenaq with his particular care, really made me look and feel good about myself quickly."- L.M. / Yelp / Nov 03, 2015

"In 1998 my 9 year old had a major accident on his dirt bike (he was wearing a full face helmet) . Dr Shenaq put over 60 stitches in his face and you can’t even see a scar. The muscles in his far head were severed and hanging out of his face too. He does amazing work and I would recommend him to everyone!"- L.C. / Facebook / Feb 23, 2019
"5 STARS- 10 stars if I could! I would not have been able to survive the last year without the kind and loving care of Dr Shenaq and ALL of his staff! Brenda, Olga and Marcie were also there for me whenever I had questions or concerns or even when I was having a bad day and needed someone to talk to. When I first met with Dr. Shenaq and his staff I had just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I was nervous, frightened, and very concerned about my overall health. I have... Type 2 Diabetes and I DID NOT have it under control. Dr Shenaq was very kind, compassionate , comforting and very comforting, yet, very adamant that he was very concerned about my A1C and told me that he would not do the DIEP Reconstruction until my blood sugar was under control. This was a wakeup call for me! I got me A1C under control and was able to have the procedure. I am now 30 pounds lighter, have a flat tummy and my girls look great!!!! I am so confident and very grateful for these wonderful people! Go see him! You will not regret it!"- B.A. / Facebook / Sep 18, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
A mommy makeover is a body contouring treatment, tailored for each woman based on the specific body areas to be reshaped. Many procedures can be paired together; the most common treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed using general anesthesia and taking into account the number of treatments, it could take within 3 – 7 hours. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital might be necessary. To create an additional glow, nonsurgical skin procedures, such as laser treatments and injectables, that can be applied to diminish facial lines and diminish surface issues.
What to Expect
This cosmetic body contouring procedure is considered an invasive treatment and can surgically cover a large portion of the body. After a recovery period in the hospital, patients will begin to recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply and rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight will be hard the first week or so, and a step-by-step home healing protocol will be provided to help the incisions and sutures heal effectively. Most patients find the recovery phase can take about 6 months. Even though the primary healing aspects could take months, most patients are able to return to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Resuming exercise should wait for around 2 months. Regardless of recovery time, this surgery can be an amazing journey for women, providing them with a renewed self-esteem once again.
