Although moms love their role as mother and parent, many of them don’t like what pregnancy and breastfeeding does to their bodies. They especially don’t like the sight of droopy, deflated breasts, and sagging belly skin. Some of them would like to have a mommy makeover to restore their figure, but they often wonder when is the best time to get a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is tailored to the needs of each patient. The choice of procedures generally depends on the areas that need correction. A mommy makeover often consists of breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction, but additional procedures may be added as necessary.
Women who would like to have a mommy makeover should:
•Have completed childbearing and stopped breastfeeding. Women who plan to have more children in the future should wait to have a mommy makeover. Having another baby after undergoing the procedure can reverse the effects.
•Be within 10% of their ideal weight. Losing or gaining significant weight after undergoing a mommy makeover, may undo all the benefits of the makeover.
•Be in good overall health. Patients should ensure that they do not have any underlying conditions that may lead to complications.
After undergoing a mommy makeover, patients will require some help with the children and chores. They should therefore ensure that this help is available before opting for surgery, as support is very important during recovery.
