Experience Natural-looking Results That Appear Seamless & Beautiful With A Mommy Makeover From Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Cara Downey.
A mommy makeover refers to a set of procedures performed to counteract the effects of childbearing. The most common procedures performed as part of a Mommy Makeover include tummy tuck, a breast lift with or without implants and liposuction. The breasts and abdomen are the two areas that women struggle with most following childbirth and breastfeeding. Each and every procedure is customized to the patient’s individual needs. At Heights Plastic Surgery, in Houston, Dr. Downey prides herself on providing one-of-a-kind procedures to help her patients feel good on the inside and out. Plus, as a mother of 5, 2 sets of twins, she gets it! She knows how pregnancy can affect women physically and mentally and how getting your body back can be life changing.

Good candidates for a mommy makeover may be women who have had children and have reached their ideal weight; significant weight fluctuation may negatively impact the patient’s results.
Since a mommy makeover procedure is a custom set of procedures designed for each unique woman, no two procedures will be exactly alike. That is the wonderful part of this surgery, individualized results for individualized requests. Ultimately, Dr. Downey will help each patient determine if they would benefit from a mommy makeover and help them choose the procedures that would be best for them.

At your one-on-one consultation, you’ll meet with Dr. Downey and her patient care coordinator to discuss all your options and create a customized treatment plan. She will review your health history, do a physical exam, go thru each procedure option step-by-step to create a customized plan and quote just for you. You’ll have ample time to have any questions answered, review any of your concerns and view before and after photos.
At Heights Plastic Surgery your mommy makeover procedure is performed under general anesthesia administered by a board-certified physician anesthesiologist, you will be able to return home the same day as surgery. The surgery will take place in Dr. Downey’s private AAAASF facility which is considered the gold standard in accreditation of free-standing ambulatory surgery centers.
On the day of surgery, she will mark on your body where the incisions will go and thoroughly review her surgical plan with you before anesthesia is administered. For you the surgery will happen in a blink of an eye, but most mommy makeover surgeries take between 2 – 6 hours.
When you wake up from surgery you will be monitored in a recovery room by our caring and knowledgeable staff until you are released to a loved one for transportation home to continue to recover.
We will see you back in-office usually 24 to 72 hours after surgery to ensure you are healing well and see you for weekly visits until 6 weeks post-op, when you are typically released to return to all activities.

"Dr. Downey did my abdominoplasty and I could not be more satisfied! I am only a few days post-op, however, I will have access to Dr. Downey for the next 6 months at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE, which is relieving (i.e. office visit fee). She follows her patients' recovery demonstrating that she truly cares about her patients and how they are handling the surgery and healing."
