Let’s Have a Conversation

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination approach to address the changes that pregnancy and breastfeeding bring to a mother’s body. This is not a one-size-fits-all solution but a customized plan David M. Godat, MD, creates to suit your specific set of needs and goals.
There are numerous procedures a mommy makeover can include:
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast reduction
  • Liposuction
  • Fat transfer
  • Thigh or arm contouring
During your initial consultation with Dr. Godat, he discusses the options best suited for your treatment goals. You’ll have all the details you need to make an informed decision about your care.

When’s the right time for a mommy makeover?

Timing is an important part of deciding to move forward with a mommy makeover. If you’re planning to have another child soon or are still breastfeeding, it may be better to wait until after you’ve had your last child.
That said, there are some plastic surgery procedures that can be done even before you’ve completed your family. Speak with Dr. Godat about your options.
Another aspect of timing involves having enough help after your surgery. There will be a brief period of time when you won’t be able to drive, and you’ll need help around the house for a week or so as your body begins the healing process.
That’s especially true if you have babies or small children at home. There will be lifting restrictions for a few weeks after a mommy makeover, and that includes lifting your kids.

How can I improve healing after a mommy makeover?

Healing is a very individualized matter and depends in large part on your overall health. Smokers may not be good candidates for a mommy makeover, as smoking causes circulatory problems and slows wound healing. Quitting a few weeks prior to your procedure can make a world of difference in your healing process.
You can also boost your healing by following Dr. Godat’s recovery instructions. Don’t return to normal activity levels until your body has had a chance to recover, and take things easy at first. Embracing a healthy diet is also a great way to boost healing.
When you’re ready to explore a mommy makeover in more depth, call the office to schedule a consultation with David M. Godat, MD.

My experience with Dr. Godat and his entire staff after foot surgery in early February 2016, considerable follow-up and additional surgeries has been nothing but positive. Dr. Godat treated me as a whole person and did so with compassion, warmth and humor. He did not give up on me, answered my questions and provided excellent advice. Dr. Godat and each member of his staff are empathetic, caring and encouraging. My foot is healed and I could not have done it without them. Dr. Godat is an exceptional doctor and surgeon and has my wholehearted recommendation.

This is my second surgery with Dr. Godat. He and his staff go above and beyond in the care of their patients. His staff are kind, patient, and caring. I’m thrilled with the results of my breast reduction surgery and highly recommend Dr. Godat and his staff.
Dr. Godat performed surgery on me…. I could not be happier with the results. He and his team are very friendly and responsive. They made this process much easier and smoother than i could have hoped for.
I moved to the DFW area a couple of years ago got work and was looking for a new plastic surgeon to continue corrective surgery from a birth defect. Dr. Godat, Chrissy, Laura, and the entire staff are absolutely amazing. Regardless of the number of surgeries I have had the entire team is amazing and the work that Dr. Godat does is phenomenal. He truly takes pride in his work and has really done a great job building my confidence with his attention to detail and continues to surprise me after each procedure with how great the outcome is. I cannot Express how happy I am with the entire office.
Love Dr. Godat! I was a patient of his father’s and they have the same wonderful bedside manner.
I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Godat and his staff. I had my tummy tuck with muscle repair on March 1, 2021. My incision line is PERFECT and low from hip to hip! His staff is top notched. They’re professional, remember your name and greet you with a smile coming and going. Anytime I have a question, I get an answer verbally and/or within an hour if I ask via email. This is unheard of!! When my drains and stitches were removed, the staff was very gentle and eased my anxiety – priceless!I’m forever grateful and highly recommend Dr. Godat!
I had a Duodenal Switch in October of 2017 and since that time had gone from 389# to 235# which left me with and abundance of hanging skin. The weight lost actually increased my back pain due from my herniated disks due to the lack of “padding” as well as the added stress from the hanging skin. Once I was finally approved for the skin removal and abdominoplasty last December, The process was very quick. I had my first appointment on Dec 3rd, preop on Dec 9th and surgery on Dec 12th. Everything went great. I had and issue with one area of abdomen not healing properly ending up in the need for wound care for it to totally heal. The results have been AWESOME. I am now having very little back pain have lost another 20# (down to 215#) and 6 more inches from my waistline (44 inch waist before skin removal and now 38). Dr. Godat and his staff have been truly amazing thru this whole process.
I had a breast reduction, lift and liposuction done in October 2020. I must say I’m very pleased with the work performed. Since my surgery, I’ve recommended several people!
Dr. David Godat performed surgery on me last year. I’m glad I got the results I wanted. He and his staff are friendly. If you are in need of help, greatly recommend using his service.
Went in expecting a possible run around because I didn’t know if I lost enough weight but the staff was completely welcoming and human and helped me to see things I couldn’t see on my own and I could get help for skin removal. Dr Godat walked in and cemented that feeling. He listened to my history and weight loss stats and told me I did just enough and I was a great candidate for surgery. My surgery date was set and 3 weeks later I had my tummy tuck. The after care was excellent and easy. I thank God for Dr. Godat and his staff!!!! Please call him! He won’t give up on you!
Dr. Godat revised a surgery I had 10 years ago and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Wish I would have done it sooner!
I cannot say enough great things about Dr.Godat and his team. Loved him, his nurses, assistants, receptionist, everyone! Very welcoming staff and great bedside manner (he’s a to the point type of doctor!). I got a reduction/lift and he delivered amazing results! I will be definitely be going back to him for other procedures. He’s awesome. Thank you again, Dr. Godat and Team 💛
Dr.Godat is the best, he does awesome work I got my tummy tuck on June 18,2018 and I can truly say I’m amazed at my results. I was not in any pain at all just a little soreness and tight but nothing you cant handle. I referred my dentist and he is set for surgery Nov.23,2018 for his procedure and a couple of the ladies from the dentist office. I’m referring everyone to Dr.Godat. Thank you Dr.Godat and his team for an outstanding service and I tip my hat off to his office team they are so nice.

Before going to Dr. Godat I had two previous breast surgeries, a lift and implant replacement. Both of them after so many years started to “sag” again. They were heavy and my bra straps began to dig into my shoulders. I learned about the internal bra surgery and made my appt with Dr. Godat. He and his nurses explained the whole procedure and this was exactly what I was looking for! Fast forward to today, almost 9 months after the procedure I wish I would had known about this the first time and didn’t waste the time, money or pain on the previous two procedures. I recommend ANYONE wanting a breast Augmentation to go to him and couple it with the “internal bra surgery” my implants stay up, stay in place, and the only reason I wear a bra is for “decoration!” Dr. Godat and his staff are amazing, they explain and answered all my questions even if I asked them twice! Everything about this procedure was awesome. Now I’m not going to lie, recovery takes a bit more time and care… but for me it was 100% worth it!
My experience with Dr Godat and his staff was amazing! Everyone was very professional and courteous and really listened to my needs. I will definitely go back to Dr Godat!
Answers all my questions! And very friendly
I want to start by Thanking the whole Dr. Godat Team!! Everyone in the office has been fabulous, nice and very caring!! I want to give a special thanks to Chrissy for being the best ever and I wouldn’t of wanted to share this life changing experience with any other person/office!! I look amazing and feel even better! Dr. Godat did a great job! I went to many consults while trying to find the right doctor to do my breast and tummy tuck and the moment I stepped foot in there I knew that was where I’d be getting it done. The wait can be a tad bit over your appointment time, but they move quickly and that just goes to show how many others are willing to wait to get the best! Chrissy, Laura, Dr. Godat I love you guys and you took all my insecurities away and showed me the best! I love you all and I’ve been telling everyone come there they won’t regret it! I love you Chrissy thanks for being you!

FAQ

Yes! We work with CareCredit to provide you with convenient, low-interest financing for any of our plastic surgery procedures. CareCredit is like a credit card that is used exclusively for healthcare and cosmetic surgery services.

In addition to using CareCredit financing for surgery, you can use your card for follow-up appointments or additional procedures so that you can schedule appointments to fit your lifestyle.

The procedures done under Mommy Makeover can vary depending on your unique needs and problems. But a typical mommy makeover eliminates the visible side effects of childbirth, mostly found around the breast and waistline area.

Many new moms prefer to restore the fullness of their breasts through surgeries like breast implants or fat transfer. Some also include breast lifts to make their breasts look even better and more prominent to achieve better results.

As for the waistline area, moms generally reach out to us to discuss removing the unwanted loosen skin around their abdomen. In turn, we suggest our tummy tuck along with our liposuction procedure. 

For other specific childbirth side effects and concerns, other surgical options can be added to the Mommy Makeover, such as a facelift, skin tightening, and more. 

The team at Dr. Godat would happily go over the entire list of surgical procedures that you can choose from. Then, together, we can design a specific treatment plan that will help you love the way you look and feel.

Like any surgery, there are some risks associated with these procedures. The most important thing you can do to limit those risks is to choose a qualified plastic surgeon who understands the benefits and risks of combined procedures. At Godat Plastic Surgery, you will be under the care of a skilled plastic surgeon with over 25 years of experience. If you decide to combine different surgeries, you will benefit from one recovery period, reduced exposure to anesthesia, and lower operating room costs.
Recovery time can vary depending on the number of operations done, but a good rule of thumb is to plan at least a 10 to 14-day recovery. During this time, you should expect to rest and not go to work or do your usual activities. It will take approximately six months to see the full results of your mommy makeover.
For optimal results, you should wait at least several months after childbirth or once your body returns to your average stable weight again (near your weight before you got pregnant) for procedures like the mommy makeover.
Undergoing a mommy makeover will not affect your ability to conceive. However, with that said, we highly suggest you only undergo a mommy makeover if you are confident that you don’t have a plan to get pregnant in the next 2-3 years.

Restoring Bodies. Changing Lives.

From this moment on, forget everything you have ever heard or read about what age “must do” to your appearance. Forget anything you have ever believed about how “old” you must look at thirty, forty, fifty, or even sixty. Because starting with this moment you are about to look and feel beautiful and confident at all stages of your life.
