Mommy Makeover Overview
A mommy makeover is a great way to get your pre-pregnancy body back. Motherhood can take a toll on a woman’s body both externally and internally. Patients can combine vaginal rejuvenation with other cosmetic surgeries to improve their breasts and body contours following pregnancy and childbirth. Dr. Aimee Nguyen works with double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Najera to combine elective procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, or tummy tucks. With this option your surgery will be conducted in a single surgical session, thereby minimizing the risk, inconvenience and cost of multiple surgeries.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"Thank You Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Najera! I went to many different physicians in the area. I never felt most comfortable with complete Mommy Makeover. I was really embarrassed to speak about vaginal rejuvenation/ labiaplasty to any doctor. Dr. Nguyen was so nurturing and kind she made everything much better for me. After having children your body takes a complete turn. I'm excited I chose her and recommend her to anyone who is looking for a Vaginal Cosmetic Physician. She also specializes in Urogynecology which was a plus. Recovery was easier then expected. Thanks again to the Docs and staff for helping me in every step of the way! :)"- B.S. / Google / Apr 14, 2015

Mommy Makeover Surgical Technique
Dr. Nguyen works very closely with Dr. Robert Najera, a highly experienced, double board-certified Frisco plastic surgeon, to help meet all of their patients’ needs in one surgery. Together, Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Najera can provide a complete mommy makeover with the benefits of:
- Special pricing for combined procedures
- Less time for recovery by doing everything at one time
- Less time under general anesthesia to minimize risk
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Depending on the procedures that are performed during the mommy makeover, some patients will be able to leave the same day, but some will need an overnight hospital stay. After the surgeries, patients will have temporary swelling, bruising, and some pain for 1-2 weeks. A patient’s recovery may be slower or faster based on the amount and type of procedures in their treatment plan. In general, more strenuous activity will be allowed 4-6 weeks after the surgeries.
What to Expect with Mommy Makeover
Final results are usually seen ranging from 6 weeks to 3 months once the swelling after the initial surgery has subsided. The results of the mommy makeover will be permanent as long as a stable, healthy weight is maintained after the procedures. Pregnancy, childbirth, and weight gain or loss after the procedures could compromise the results.
Labiaplasty Estimated Cost
A mommy makeover can cost between $8,000 and $17,000 depending on the procedures that are chosen as part of the treatment plan. Dr. Nguyen will be able to give a better estimate of the cost, which includes the surgery, anesthesia, facility fee, and all pre and post-operative appointments, during the initial consultation. Financing is available through CareCredit.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Combining surgeries will mean a long recovery time, but you will spend less total time recovering than if all the surgeries were performed individually. For example, a tummy tuck requires 1 – 2 weeks of recovery before you can return to work, a breast lift requires 1 week, and liposuction also requires 1 week. If the surgeries were performed separately, the patient would spend 3-4 weeks total in recovery. However, if the tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction were performed during one surgery, the patient would spend 1 – 2 weeks in recovery. It is also best to minimize the amount of times that the patient is put under anesthesia.
For the best and permanent results, patients should be at a healthy, stable weight and not planning any more pregnancies. Patients should allow time for their bodies to heal and recover as naturally as possible before having a mommy makeover. Patients should not be breastfeeding if they are having a breast lift or augmentation.
A mommy makeover can include any surgical and non-surgical procedure. Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Najera will discuss each patient’s body concerns and their goals in the initial consultation before creating an individual treatment plan for the patient.
