Dr. Camille Cash helps mothers restore or reinvent their post-pregnancy bodies by tackling multiple trouble areas in a mommy makeover. Houston moms who have visited her for these personalized plastic surgery procedures have discovered that they can still feel very happy about their self-image even after having children and enjoying the benefits of raising a family.
"As a plastic surgeon and mother myself, I understand the difficulty many mothers face trying to return to their previous shape after having children. That’s why I am dedicated to empowering mothers to look and feel just the way they want through a mommy makeover."
Why Choose a Mommy Makeover?
For many mothers, the rewards of having children are great, but the toll that pregnancy takes on their bodies can be disappointing. Some women notice that their abdomens don’t “bounce back” to their pre-pregnancy shape even after they follow a careful diet and get back to their exercise routines. Also, many women’s breasts begin to droop or in some cases, remain larger or smaller than they were before they had children. The changes can often make mothers feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Talking It Over With Dr. Cash
Your consultation with Dr. Cash will set the stage for your mommy makeover. Together, you and Dr. Cash will have a thorough conversation about the improvements you’d like to see. Remember: Dr. Cash is a mom, so she’s been there. She understands very well the concerns many women have about their bodies after pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding.
There is no perfect formula for a mommy makeover. Instead, Dr. Cash helps each patient choose the specific procedures that are right for her. Most commonly, a mommy makeover includes any combination of the following procedures:
- Breast augmentation helps moms have fuller breasts. After pregnancy and nursing, breasts may become smaller and a breast augmentation can restore fullness.
- Breast lift can restore the breasts to their pre-pregnancy position. In combination with a breast augmentation, this procedure can achieve a full breast makeover.
- Breast reduction provides a variety of benefits. If your breasts are larger now than before pregnancy, you may be experiencing neck, upper back. and shoulder pain. Some women develop rashes between their breasts or grooves on their shoulders from bra straps. Breast reduction can bring relief and 1 less thing to worry about in your hectic schedule.
- Tummy tuck is ideal for addressing stretched-out abdominal muscles and excess skin and fat on the belly. A tummy tuck is usually the keystone procedure in a mommy makeover.
- Liposuction is a great way to touch up areas where the baby weight refuses to disappear. Liposuction in combination with a tummy tuck can also help slim your waistline, giving you a fit and youthful appearance.
- ThermiVa® is a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that can tighten external and internal vaginal tissue and restore sensitivity. Because no surgery is involved, no downtime is needed, and you can resume normal activities the same day, including intercourse.
Regardless of the surgeries each patient selects, Dr. Cash spends lots of time reviewing how patients can prepare, as well as exactly what they can expect in the days, weeks, and months following a mommy makeover.

Here in Houston, the mommy makeover procedures Dr. Cash performs are as individual as the patients themselves. That said, patient goals do tend to follow a few patterns.

Before Your Consultation, Ask Yourself:
- What are your desired results? It’s often helpful to create a list of the improvements that are most important to you. Dr. Cash will help you decide which procedures will provide those improvements, while considering your available downtime and budget.
- How much time do you have for recovery? Combining procedures means you’ll only have a single recovery period. Keep in mind that surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck, take weeks of healing time, while nonsurgical procedures usually require little to no downtime. If you choose surgical options, you will need a friend or family member to help you with your children and your care.
- What is your budget? Most nonsurgical procedures do not involve anesthetic and may be performed right in our office—which makes them more affordable than surgery. For patients considering surgical options, Dr. Cash offers patient financing to help make their goals more affordable.
- Are you planning to have more children or lose weight? For the most long-lasting results, Dr. Cash recommends that patients be within 10 pounds of their ideal weight. It’s also essential that patients are not planning any future pregnancies.
"I highly recommend Dr. Cash and her staff. She is an artist! Dr. Cash took the time to listen to my overall goals and helped me make an educated decision on what procedures would best help me meet those goals. Over the past two years I have lost 100lbs, so needless to say there were definitely some things that needed to be “sucked, tucked and lifted up."
*Keep in mind each patient is unique and your experience may vary.
Is it better to have these surgeries individually or at the same time?
One of the benefits of having the procedures at the same time is that it minimizes recovery time since you only have to go through the recovery period once. The recovery time for every procedure varies, but tackling it all at once means you don’t have to take more time off work or away from your family.
I still want to have more children. Should I wait to have a mommy makeover?
To enjoy the benefit of your surgery for a long time, you should not plan on becoming pregnant in the future. That said, Dr. Cash does perform “modified” tummy tucks for women who are still considering a future pregnancy. During this modified abdominoplasty, only the skin is tightened and not the midline muscle as in a standard tummy tuck. This procedure is typically offered to women who have had a significant weight loss, either from diet and exercise or from bariatric surgery and have a large amount of hanging skin in the abdominal area. This procedure is done on a limited basis, as additional pregnancies can change the result of most cosmetic body contouring procedures, but “a modified” tummy tuck can still help make your stomach flatter and more toned. Note that in most cases the ability to breastfeed is retained.
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost for a mommy makeover ranges from $14,000 to $25,000, which is usually less than if the procedures were performed individually. Dr. Cash’s tiered mommy makeover system includes a nonsurgical option that starts at $7,000. Because combining procedures increases the complexity of the surgery, it’s especially important to choose a surgeon who is highly qualified and experienced in performing mommy makeover procedures.
What are some things I can do to prepare for my mommy makeover?
Although Dr. Cash will provide you with a complete list of preoperative instructions, there are a few ways you can begin preparing your home and yourself as soon as your surgery is scheduled. Prior to your mommy makeover, it’s important to have a trusted friend or family member who is willing and able to assist with chores, errands, childcare, and other day-to-day activities. You’ll need extra help with activities that include bending, lifting, or any type of strenuous exercise. Be sure that you have a few sets of comfortable, loose-fitting clothing such as pajamas that button up the front to wear while you heal. It’s also a good idea to shop for nutritious, low-sodium meals and snacks that are ready to eat or require very little preparation. Have your prescriptions filled in advance, and be sure your home is stocked with personal care items such as toilet paper and fragrance-free lotion.
