What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a selected combination of plastic surgery procedures to address the changes a mother may experience after pregnancy and childbirth. Generally, the combination of procedures focus on the lax abdominal skin and muscles with a tummy tuck, fat deposits under the skin with liposuction, and deflated breasts with breast augmentation or breast lift surgery.
At Alluring Aesthetics, Dr. Grunberg believes in opening the door behind the concept of the Mommy Makeover. Instead of excluding non-mothers from the experience of a comprehensive collection of cosmetic solutions and limiting mothers to a small portion of our offerings, Dr. Grunberg strives to inspire beauty in every patient she comes in contact with.
So, if you are wanting to address more than one (or two) areas of your body at once, contact Alluring Aesthetics today!

Your Makeover Procedure
Your customized makeover process will be unique to you! This means you are able to mix-and-match procedures to create the beautiful face and/or body you desire. Because of this, your procedure will be tailored to you. Take your pick from our selection of procedures to help you achieve your body goals!
Body Contouring Procedures
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
An arm lift is a surgical procedure where the excess tissue is removed from the arms and the remaining skin is tightened. The result is slimmer, more toned-looking arms!
BodyTite is a minimally-invasive technology that has been FDA-cleared for body contouring. BodyTite utilizes radiofrequency assisted liposuction to not only liquify and remove fat cells from under the skin, but also significantly tighten the skin!
Dr. Grunberg utilizes the power of Sculptra to provide patients with a rounder, fuller butt. Sculptra is a Poly-L-Lactic Acid dermal filler used to smooth and plump various areas of the skin. Through small injections, Sculptra aids in boosting the body’s own collagen production, providing you with long-lasting butt lift results!
Female rejuvenation is a very intimate, yet empowering procedure. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure where the labia minora and/or labia majora (inner and outer vaginal lips) are reshaped. Dr. Grunberg can reduce the size of the labia, resulting in a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing vulva. In addition to labiaplasty, Dr. Grunberg also offers the O-Shot. This procedure can help to revitalize your most intimate areas.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure intended to remove fat deposits from under the skin by utilizing vacuum suction. Dr. Grunberg will insert a thin, hollow tube, called a cannula, into the treatment area and physically remove the fat. Just about anywhere on your body can be treated with liposuction.
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure meant to remove excess skin and fat from the thighs that may have resulted from weight loss or age. This surgery can also smooth the skin dimpled by cellulite! If you’ve tried creams, massages, and other topical remedies to get rid of the “cottage cheese” look of your thighs and the flabby skin, a thigh lift may be a great solution.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can work wonders for mothers and those who have lost significant weight! A tummy tuck removes sagging skin and excess fat from the belly. It also has the added benefit of having Dr. Grunberg tighten the weakened abdominal muscles that may have been caused by pregnancy and in some cases, severe obesity. A cinched waist is yours to have with a tummy tuck!
VASER Hi-Def Liposuction
VASER Hi-Def liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that removes fat from the body. It is different from traditional lipo because it utilizes ultrasound energy to loosen the fat cells, making the fat easier to remove. This allows for a quicker and more comfortable recovery. VASER Hi-Def Liposuction can be used to sculpt the body in a precise manner giving way to your defined musculature!
Breast Augmentation (Mammaplasty)
If you desire a larger bust, breast augmentation may be right for you! Breast implants can help you achieve fuller, shaplier breasts with enhanced cleavage. Clothes may fit and look better after a breast augmentation by Dr. Grunberg!
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift is a surgical procedure to reposition the breasts higher on the chest wall. If you struggle with deflated, sagging breasts due to prior pregnancy and breastfeeding, age, or weight loss, a breast lift surgery can have you feeling more confident in your skin.
Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)
While we love everything bigger in Texas, some women decide large breasts are not for them. Large breasts may cause significant physical discomfort and reduced quality of life. A breast reduction can help you reclaim your body and your life!
Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
An eyelid lift can help you look more youthful and pleasant! By removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids, your vision may be clearer and your eyes brighter. Instead of looking tired, angry, or old, you can set your sights on looking and feeling awake, alert, and younger!
A facelift is a surgical procedure to smooth the skin on the face. This is accomplished by pulling the skin taut over the facial structures. This irons out lines, wrinkles, and jowls, giving you a youthful appearance.
Similar to a facelift, a neck lift removes sagging skin from the neck and the remaining tissue is tightened. Say goodbye to the turkey neck and the double chin!
Injectable treatments are intended to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and depressions in the skin. Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators that restrict the movement of the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles in the upper face. This helps the skin remain smooth and wrinkle-free. Dermal fillers provide volume under the skin. They can smooth wrinkles, plump the cheeks, and fill the lips. You can revitalize your look with a combination of injectables!
Treatments for Men
Gynecomastia is a condition where men develop excess breast tissue. Dr. Grunberg can reduce the enlarged breasts and give you the sculpted, more masculine chest you desire.
Recovery and Results
Dr. Grunberg will provide you with instructions to follow to ensure a safe and successful recovery. In order to maximize and obtain optimal results, it is imperative that you follow the directions and attend any follow up appointments. Regardless of the combination of procedures you choose, Dr. Grunberg will provide you with impressive, natural-looking, long-lasting results!
