BOTOX® Cosmetic

in Las Vegas, NV

Many mothers discover that their bodies do not return to their pre-baby form after having one or more children. Pregnancy causes a woman’s body to store fat and forces the skin and muscles to stretch in preparation for the stress of childbirth and breastfeeding.

While some of these changes will reverse on their own, others are impossible to improve without surgical assistance. Mommy Makeover surgery utilizes a combination of plastic surgery procedures that help you achieve a tighter, firmer body with attractive, confidence-enhancing contours.

Mommy Makeover surgery is customized to you, but it usually involves some combination of breast enhancement and body contouring techniques.

Mommy Makeover Surgery Options

  • Procedure

    • BOTOX® Cosmetic contains a protein derived from botulinum toxin type A.
    • When this solution is injected into the wrinkle-creating muscles on the upper face, it temporarily blocks chemical signals and prevents the muscles from contracting.
    • BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are performed in-office in a few minutes. 
    • Some patients choose to pick up an over-the-counter numbing ointment to be applied prior to the appointment (e.g., Salonpas®).
    • Thin needles inject the solution directly into the affected muscles. 
    • A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment session will consist of several strategically placed injections.
  • Results

    Your results will become apparent within a couple of days. These results will gradually improve over the following weeks, and your smooth skin can be enjoyed for months.

Concerns

Recovery

Your Mommy Makeover recovery period will vary depending on which procedures are best for you.

Mommy Makeover surgery is an outpatient procedure, and you can return home shortly after the operation. You will need to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the first one to two days and have help with all household chores and childcare, for at least one week.

You can expect to take up to two weeks off of work and all of your regular activities. Heavy lifting—children, weights, laundry, groceries—and strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least four to six weeks to ensure that you are healing in the best way.

Dr. Alexander will give you a detailed explanation about what you can expect and how to best manage your life during your recovery period.

Scars

Scarring is an inevitable result of any surgical procedure; however, Dr. Alexander does his best to make the incisions as small, hidden, and meticulously placed as possible.

The location and extent of your scars will depend on the surgical techniques performed. Dr. Alexander will inform you about all of your surgical incisions during your consultation so that you will know what to expect for your scarring.

All surgical scars usually fade with time and, in select patients, may be lessened with scar creams and silicone strips.

Cost

The total cost of your plastic surgery procedure is a reflection of your plastic surgeon. Dr. Alexander has been board certified in plastic surgery for over two decades, during which time he has been honored and recognized with multiple awards and accolades. With his extensive expertise, knowledge, and skill, Dr. Alexander customizes your Mommy Makeover to your needs and ensures that only the safest and most advanced techniques are used.

The final cost of your Mommy Makeover depends on the specific combination of procedures, the extent of correction, and the techniques used. Additional cost factors include anesthesia fees, facility fees, pre-surgical tests, and post-surgical dressings.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the estimated cost of surgeon’s fees range between $9,000 and $20,000, but this will vary significantly depending on the specifics of your operation. Dr. Alexander and his team will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation.

Since plastic surgery is cosmetic and elective, insurance will not cover the cost of these procedures. Dr. Alexander offers financing options through CareCredit®.

Comfort

Dr. Alexander performs Mommy Makeover surgery under general anesthesia with the assistance of a board-certified anesthesiologist who will monitor your vitals and health throughout the process.

While none of the procedures performed in a Mommy Makeover will prevent you from conceiving or complicate a pregnancy, additional pregnancies will affect or reverse the quality and appearance of your results. We suggest that you wait until you are finished having children before undergoing any of the surgical procedures associated with a Mommy Makeover for the best long-term results. You can expect some bruising and swelling in all treated areas. Compression garments/dressings will be wrapped around the treated areas to reduce swelling and promote blood circulation. World-class results are our goal. The majority of post-operative discomfort is experienced during the first 48 to 72 hours. Pain medication will be prescribed for you to alleviate any discomfort, and most patients switch to over-the-counter pain medication after a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is BOTOX® Cosmetic safe?

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is the world’s most popular injectable treatment. While this injectable is derived from a toxin and works by interfering with muscle contraction, it is safe. This treatment is FDA approved, and the effects of the treatment are not permanent even with repeated injectable sessions. As with any medicine, there can be side effects, such as an allergic reaction or eyelid sagging. Major complications are rare.

  • Am I a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is appropriate for men and women of all ages. Candidates should be in good health with no allergies to BOTOX® Cosmetic or other botulinum toxin treatment and have no existing nerve or muscle conditions. Men and women considering BOTOX® Cosmetic may experience dissatisfaction from at least one of the following:

    • Crow’s feet
    • Frown lines
    • Forehead lines
  • Are there other uses for BOTOX®?

    While the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is the primary usage for BOTOX® Cosmetic, anti-aging was not the original purpose of BOTOX®. BOTOX® can also be used to treat chronic migraines, reduce underarm sweating, and control muscle spasms.

  • How long will my BOTOX® Cosmetic results last?

    Most patients experience smooth skin and wrinkle reduction for three months, if not longer. Eventually, the muscles will begin to contract again, causing the return of the fine lines and wrinkles. Most patients schedule repeated treatments every three to six months to maintain lasting smoothness.
