If you have sagging breasts, loose skin, and stubborn fat deposits after pregnancy, Dr. Bruce Hermann can provide rejuvenation.
A mommy makeover is a customized combination of body contouring procedures that can help you feel confident and attractive.
At his Denton, TX, serving Flower Mound and Lewisville, Dr. Hermann uses the safest and most advanced makeover techniques.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing often result in loose skin, stretch marks, and sagging in different parts of the body. Without surgery, a mother is often left with permanent and unwanted changes after pregnancy.
A mommy makeover combines multiple plastic surgery procedures to restore the appearance of a mother's body. These procedures refine a woman's curves and contours by removing excess skin and tightening remaining tissues. When you choose a qualified plastic surgeon, the results can provide a tremendous boost in self-esteem.

A Trusted Plastic Surgeon in the Dallas Area
Choosing a surgeon can be scary but let me help. Dr. Hermann is an amazing surgeon and I HIGHLY recommend him. I had a breast lift/augmentation and at 3 months post op I'm in awe of my body. I never thought I would feel this confident even after losing all my baby weight. The staff here is also incredible. They were always willing to help me with ANY questions or concerns through out the entire process. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hermann and his staff. Schedule a consult you wont be disappointed!!
I went to Dr. Herman summer 2020 for a breast reduction consultation. I was very nervous about going in and if he was going to be able to get the desired look I wanted. He answered all my questions and spent the time to explain exactly how surgery would go. A few weeks later I scheduled my reduction! Surgery went great and I can’t imagine not doing the surgery. I’m in love with the results and my confidence has skyrocketed. Dr. Herman is a miracle worker!

What Is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover?
The Extent of Treatment
To provide our patients with a custom quote, we need to perform an exam and determine which procedures are needed and the total extent of surgery. For example, some patients may require a mini abdominoplasty, while others require a full abdominoplasty. We are proud to offer pricing that is comparable to - or even less expensive than - our competitors in Dallas.
Your Choice of Surgeon
No matter where you live, it's not difficult to find a plastic surgeon these days. However, it is not as easy to find a surgeon who is board-certified, reputable, and has trained with leaders in the field. With Dr. Hermann, you benefit not only from the care of a surgeon who has all of these qualities, but also strives to keep his pricing competitive.
Insurance does not cover plastic surgery procedures that aren't considered medically necessary, and we understand many patients are not prepared to pay upfront for a mommy makeover out of pocket. That is why we accept CareCredit® financing. This reputable healthcare financing company offers low-interest and interest-free plans to qualifying individuals. You can apply online in minutes to see which plans are available to you.
During your initial consultation at our Dallas-area practice, Dr. Hermann will determine your candidacy. This involves reviewing your medical history and cosmetic goals. Dr. Hermann will recommend treatments, discuss the full procedure in detail, and answer any questions to ensure you are comfortable with your treatment plan. Because no two mommy makeovers are the same, treatment timelines and recovery will vary.
Mommy makeover candidates should:
- Be in good overall health.
- Not be planning on any subsequent pregnancies.
- Be at a healthy, normal weight.

Maintaining Your Comfort
Our practice serving Greater Dallas administers general anesthesia during mommy makeover surgery to make patients feel comfortable during the procedure. This means that our patients will be unconscious throughout surgery and won't have any memories of treatment.
To reduce pain after treatment, we will provide you with prescription pain medication that should be taken as directed in the days after surgery. We will also schedule follow-up visits to monitor your recovery.
Mommy Makeover Surgeries Commonly Combined Procedures
Dr. Hermann can create a perkier and more youthful bustline for our Dallas-area patients who have sagging or misshapen breasts. Depending on your goals, he can also include implants with your breast lift.
If you are unhappy with the dimensions of your breasts, implants can be inserted to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of your bustline. We can return your breasts to their pre-pregnancy appearance or enhance them further.
Dr. Hermann uses the BodyLogic system to ensure patient safety and satisfaction. This tool, developed by Dr. Hermann's mentor, allows him to take precise measurements for breast augmentation and test several implant sizes before permanently placing the most appropriate one.
Removing excess skin and tightening underlying abdominal muscles can restore a taut, lean midsection. We can also perform a mini tummy tuck, a less extensive version of abdominoplasty that can address excess skin and other issues.
Some fat deposits simply will not respond to a good diet or regular exercise. Liposuction can safely remove excess fatty tissue to enhance contours, giving you a slimmer and more athletic appearance.
If you experience issues with the appearance of your thighs after childbirth, a thigh lift may be just what you need. The thighplasty procedure can remove loose skin from the inner and outer thigh, and give you nicely toned legs.
Sometimes weight loss after giving birth leads to fat deposits and loose skin around the shoulder and tricep area. An arm lift (brachioplasty) can get rid of this unwanted tissue, allowing you to have lean, toned arms.
Single vs. Staged Treatment
In many cases, Dr. Hermann can perform a mommy makeover in a single session, but he will recommend phasing treatment if it is a better option. First and foremost, our plastic surgeon's goal is to perform your treatment plan as safely as possible. A basic breast lift or breast augmentation can usually be performed at the same time as a tummy tuck. However, you can expect that we will never perform your treatment in a way that compromises your safety.

Mommy Makeover Recovery The Post-Operative Healing Process
Initial Recovery Period
The recovery timeline and rate of recovery will depend on which mommy makeover procedures were performed. Since a tummy tuck is often part of a mommy makeover, patients will typically need to take at least two weeks off from work. Mommy makeover patients are also asked to avoid strenuous exercise for about six weeks.
Keep in mind that upon returning to work, your job duties may need to be modified, especially if any heavy lifting is involved. We'll provide detailed post-op instructions as part of your consultation.
As you heal, you will periodically return to our Denton office for a series of follow-up visits. The first appointment takes place within a week of your mommy makeover surgery, with additional visits in the weeks after.
Be sure to attend all of these appointments as scheduled. Feel to contact us should any issues or concerns arise.
After Six Weeks
By the end of six weeks, you should be able to resume most if not all normal activities. You'll be free of major side effects, and will notice an improved body contour and better-fitting clothes. Keep in mind that it can take up to a year for swelling to completely subside.
Scarring and Mommy Makeovers
Incision Techniques and Patient Education
Scars are a reality after any surgical procedure. Dr. Hermann will make all efforts to limit the amount of visible scarring from a mommy makeover. This includes using precise incision techniques and providing detailed aftercare instructions.
Dr. Hermann will place incisions in the most discreet places possible. As a result, scars from tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, and other procedures commonly included in mommy makeover surgeries are easily concealed by undergarments, bathing suits, and outfits.
Scars Will Fade
After surgery, scars will fade with time. Patients themselves can minimize visible scarring by following aftercare and post-op instructions closely. This includes practicing proper skin care, avoiding tobacco products, and protecting the skin from sun damage.
Mommy Makeover FAQs
Do C-section Scars Affect the Final Results of Surgery?No. In fact, a tummy tuck performed during a mommy makeover can actually help address some aesthetic issues after a Cesarean section. You may have a bulge over your c-section scar, which is commonly referred to as a shelf or pooch. A tummy tuck can help get rid of this unwanted bulge of the midsection, leading to a flatter stomach.
Does Insurance Cover Mommy Makeover Surgery?No. Mommy makeovers are considered elective procedures, so they are not covered by insurance. Thanks to financing options, our plastic surgery center can help keep mommy makeover costs manageable so you can experience the benefits of surgery.
What Are the Risks?Possible complications of mommy makeovers include infection, excessive bleeding, numbness around the incision sites, and poor scarring. There is also the risk of implant rupture and poor aesthetic results. Generally, these issues can be avoided by following pre-op and post-op instructions carefully, and attending follow-up visits as scheduled. If you notice any severe side effects during recovery, be sure to contact our practice as soon as possible.
What If I Want More Children?Pregnancy after the procedure will likely reverse the cosmetic benefits of your mommy makeover. During the consultation process at our office, we make sure that patients are done having children before recommending that they move forward with a mommy makeover. This helps ensure long-lasting results.
How Do I Maintain My Mommy Makeover Results?The best way to maintain the results of a mommy makeover is to lead a healthy lifestyle. That means eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. We also recommend hydrating properly, moisturizing, avoiding cigarettes and other tobacco products, and using sunblock whenever you're outdoors.
