Pregnancy is undoubtedly one of the most special times in a woman’s life — one that will be cherished forever. Even so, having children can bring many undesired changes to the body, such as loose skin, stretch marks, pockets of fat, and deflated breasts. Sometimes the body is able to bounce back — and other times, it needs a little assistance.
So, if you’ve been longing to reverse the changes your body went through during pregnancy and childbirth, then the Mommy Makeover might be just what you’ve been searching for.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
For many women, the Mommy Makeover is a life changing surgical procedure because it restores so much of their confidence. The makeover includes breast liftsurgery with or without augmentation, liposuction to remove fat pockets, as well as a tummy tuck to restore the abdominal muscles and rid the area of loose skin. To find out if you could be a good candidate for the Mommy Makeover, then read on.
Are You Ready for a Mommy Makeover?
As tempting as it may be to make an appointment for your Mommy Makeover consultation right after having a baby, we advise you to take your time. Since a woman’s body goes through so many changes during and after pregnancy, it’s important to let the body heal naturally before ever considering surgery.
There are several questions to ask yourself to help determine if you’re ready:
- Have you tried to lose any weight you’ve gained during pregnancy? The closer you are to your pre-pregnancy weight, the less likely you are to notice things like loose skin, sagging breasts, and other less desirable things that come with pregnancy.
- When did you give birth? We recommend waiting between six months to a year before resorting to surgery.
- Can you dedicate sufficient time to recover? Motherhood is a big job as it is. When you add recovery from surgery into the mix, things get even more complicated. It’s important to determine ahead of time who will be able to help you care for your child during the recovery process, whether that be your partner or family member.
- Will you be having any more children? It’s critical to wait until you’re done having children to consider having a Mommy Makeover. Having other children can reverse your results, so make sure it’s no longer a consideration.
