You have been thinking about it for years and now is the time! You can have a flat tummy and a more curvy top without a hospital stay and with less time off work! Our completely outpatient Mommy Makeover procedures can safely give you back your shape with results that are not possible with liposuction or more limited procedures, and may be permanent by simply maintaining your regular diet and exercise program.
Home the same day!
Our completely outpatient mommy makeover approach allows you to return home the same day to recover in comfort and safety, without the expense of additional overnight accommodations. Dr. Diana has developed this outpatient approach over hundreds of procedures, designed with minimal surgery trauma to decrease recovery time and discomfort.
For our out of town patients and for those who prefer to recover outside their home, we also offer exceptional accommodations in dedicated luxury surgery recovery suites; just ask your Patient Care Coordinator, and she will be happy to assist you with those arrangements.
A More Curvy Top & Flat Tummy
A mommy makeover procedure is indicated for:
- Sagging skin or skin folds caused by pregnancy or a weight loss.
- Stretch marks or marks of previous incisions that you would want to be removed.
- Lift, reshape or increase of breast size.
Combining procedures targeted to improve tummy and lower body with other procedures intended to improve breast shape and size results in what is known as a Mommy Makeover. Some changes to the lower tummy cannot be corrected by Smart Lipo or other procedures. For those, a tummy tuck is performed for permanent skin reduction. Most stretch marks found below the line of the belly button will be permanently removed, and the tummy skin is tightened for a smaller and smoother look. Sometimes a breast lift may be indicated, or the breasts just need an increase in volume to restore cleavage size and position.
Your Individual Plan
We will individually craft your unique plan to ensure your safety and comfort, both in our surgery center and during your recovery at home or at one of our suggested recovery centers. Your safety and comfort are our priority! Our approach is based on accurate and complete pre-procedure planning, discussed with you in complete detail (unless you prefer otherwise) and designed to obtain the most successful and safest Mommy Makeover outcomes.
If you are visiting us from out of town, if you prefer to spend more time in recovery outside your home, or if you have specific recovery requirements, our Patient Care Coordinators will address them individually and arrange for a comfortable and successfull recovery from your tummy tuck in San Antonio.
Shorter procedures lead to shorter recovery
- A Mommy Makeover procedure may last from two to four hours depending on the specific procedures involved
- Comfort assured by a Board Certified MD Anesthesiologist. (For your comfort, we do not offer mommy makeover combination procedures under local anesthesia)
- The procedure may include a combination of SmartLipo or tummy tuck with a breast augmentation or breast lift
We feel strongly that the combination procedures are most successful avoiding a prolonged time in the operating room, in order to reduce risks and promote quick healing and a prompt recovery. We believe that when planning a Mommy Makeover procedure it is important first and foremost to focus on the safety of of the procedure. By carefully planning the Mommy Makeover combination procedures before the surgery and using the latest technology , we are able to reduce the time spent by our patients in the operating room and therefore reduce recovery and possibly the risk associated with the procedures.
