"I had an amazing experience. Would do it again. - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon. I am 13 days out at this time so still early in the recovery process but I am very satisfied with my progress. I had the remainder of my sutures removed yesterday and am looking forward to the future with my new much improved face. Dr. Mentz and his "family" of caring staff are beyond what everyone should look for in a PS. I know I chose the best!! - - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon.

"Dr. Mentz is the best of the best! His skill and artistry is second to none. He is by far, the most caring doctor I've met, with safety Top priority. His office staff is just as kind and professional. After losing a great deal of weight, I had a lot of extra and loose skin. Even with Bootcamp 5 days a week and spin class, I was disappointed and embarrassed with my body, especially naked. Dr. Mentz did my lower face and neck In January. I can't, nor can anyone else see where the incisions were and it looks just as if I've aged very well. A month ago, Dr. Mentz did extensive body work. It hasn't even all settled. I'm still swollen, but I'm beyond thrilled. My body is already so much improved and I look so much better! My incisions are straight and low on my lower body. The part where tape is off, I'm amazed at my healing already. My scarring is going to be unnoticeable. My breasts are now perfect. I got improvement, in places I wasn't even expecting, nor do I know how Dr. Mentz pulled it off. Needless to say, I'm over the moon! I can't wait until I'm released to exercise and hit the level of fitness I was going into surgery. In surgeon shopping, Dr. Mentz is pricey, but with him, you get what you pay for. He is worth every penny. You can't go wrong with him as your surgeon. Dr. Mentz delivers incredible results!"- J.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2016
"Easy to schedule. Everyone that works in the office is a delight, very caring. They are quick to answer questions and concerns. They make the process, as easy as it can be. "- J. / Demandforce / Dec 18, 2016

In a body contouring procedure like a mommy makeover, Dr. Mentz utilizes one or more of a combination of techniques to resculpt the body. Liposuction is employed to reduce excess fat and resculpt more attractive contours. To improve sagging body parts and loose skin, Dr. Mentz will remove the excess skin and tighten and suspend the underlying tissues in order to restore a smoother, lifted appearance. The length of surgery varies, ranging from 1-5 hours or more depending on the number and complexity of the procedures that are performed and the physical condition of the patient.
The recovery timeline after a mommy makeover will vary based on the surgeries performed by Dr. Mentz. In general, patients will have less overall surgery and recovery time if they combine surgeries into a mommy makeover rather than have each surgery individually. During the consultation, Dr. Mentz will talk to each patient about what to expect during their recovery.
Multiple procedures will reduce the costs for anesthesia and facility time. Please be aware that the prices listed below are for an estimate of fees only and that you will need a consultation to confirm any pricing.

Mommy Makeover FAQs@headingTag>
Many patients choose to combine body contouring with other procedures such as breast enhancement surgery or stem-cell enriched fat grafting, a procedure in which fat that has been liposuctioned from a patient’s own body is used to add volume to the face, lips, or buttocks. In many cases, multiple procedures can be combined in a single operation.
The purpose of a mommy makeover is to restore attractive proportions and contours to the body for women after pregnancy and childbirth. Having children can cause your body to sag, droop, and accumulate unwanted fat over time that remain, despite following a diet and fitness regimen.
Dr. Mentz performs all body contouring procedures at his private AAAASF-certified SurgiCentre facility in Houston, Texas, where you will be carefully monitored and cared for by a board-certified anesthesiologist and Dr. Mentz’s highly trained surgical staff.
