Congrats on your newborn! You may be experiencing a wide range of emotions as you go about your day. For many new mothers, having a baby can cause physical changes to their bodies, which may lead to feeling uncertain about themselves. A Mommy Makeover may be the answer to help regain confidence and body positivity. Choosing when to have a Mommy Makeover is essential. This article will discuss a mommy makeover, what happens during it, and when you should have it done after pregnancy.
What’s A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a cosmetic procedure that restores the body to its pre-pregnancy form via several surgical techniques. These include breast augmentation, reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction, depending on what is necessary for desired results. Mommy makeovers are designed to remedy physical changes after childbirth like stretched or sagging breasts, excess fat, and skin loosening in the abdomen. Women should research the details of such a significant surgery before discussing it with an experienced plastic surgeon.
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover?
Depending on their needs, individuals may undergo breast surgery, tummy tucks, or liposuction. Breast surgery may involve breast augmentation, breast lift, or both. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, while liposuction targets stubborn pockets of fat. Other procedures like buttock augmentation, thigh lift, and arm lift may also be included. The combination of procedures is customized for each patient’s goals.
How Soon Can You Have a Mommy Makeover After Pregnancy?
In general, it’s essential to wait at least six months after childbirth before a Mommy Makeover. As you recover from the physical demands of pregnancy and delivery, your body prepares for the surgery. While you may want to regain your pre-baby body as soon as possible, giving your body enough healing time should be a priority.
