"Tailored Treatments. Flawless Physique. Transformative Outcomes."
Has your body changed in the way it looks and feels since you’ve had children? The breasts and abdominal area are likely to develop laxity after pregnancy that cannot be treated strictly through diet and exercise. Dr. Straka strives to help every woman feel beautiful, and the Houston Mommy Makeover is a customized set of procedures that targets your problem areas, restoring the curves and firmness of your pre-baby body and helping you feel fabulous.
The breasts can dramatically increase in size while you are pregnant and nursing. Once your milk production stops, though, you may find that your breasts lack the same volume or firmness they had before. Breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination of the two can restore the shape and perkiness of your bustline.
Becoming a mom requires your belly to stretch quickly. This stretching often results in weakened abdominal muscles and skin laxity, which can present itself as a visible belly pooch (even in otherwise fit women). A mini or traditional tummy tuck can be used to tighten protruding abdominal muscles and lax skin.
Pregnancy can cause physical and hormonal changes that make you more prone to storing excess fat in unwanted areas. It’s common to have deposits of fat around the belly, hips, and thighs. A mini or traditional tummy tuck can remove excess fat, and body-contouring techniques can help to shape your physique.

You will experience bruising and swelling following your surgery. The total length of your recovery will vary depending on the number and extent of your procedures. Compression garments and special support bras are typically worn for two to four weeks to maximize the healing process. Patients can usually drive and return to work after one week. You can begin to resume light exercise after two to three weeks but shouldn’t resume a full workout regimen until six weeks after surgery.
The scars left by incisions remain pink for the first six weeks or so. Over the following months, the scars will fade significantly, becoming more difficult to detect. Massaging scars or using scar tape may help soften scars, allowing them to fade more rapidly.
The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies depending on the procedures performed and the extent of correction needed. A detailed quote will be provided during your consultation. Financing options are available with various terms and rates through CareCredit®.
The first 24 to 48 hours following surgery will be the most uncomfortable. Most patients experience mild soreness; however, your discomfort will be controlled with pain medication.
Risks associated with your Mommy Makeover procedure may include but are not limited to temporary soreness, swelling, changes in skin sensation, hematoma, infection, and seroma. These risks are best discussed in person with Dr. Straka. Each person’s risks vary depending on their natural anatomy and medical history.
Mommy Makeover surgery is performed under a general anesthetic so that you will be asleep and comfortable. Dr. Straka uses a board-certified anesthesiologist to administer your anesthesia.
The Mommy Makeover is designed to permanently transform your appearance. However, additional changes to the body, such as weight fluctuations or future pregnancies, can impact the quality of your results.
You will be asked to refrain from taking aspirin and diet medications for at least two weeks prior to surgery. If you smoke, you will be asked to stop at least three weeks before surgery since smoking can inhibit the healing process. You will be provided with prescriptions for pain medication prior to your surgery so that you will have them on hand as you need them. On the day of your surgery, you should wear loose-fitting clothing, preferably pants without buttons. Be sure to have a spouse, family member, or friend present to drive you home after the operation. Depending on your medical history, Dr. Straka’s instructions may vary.
