When Should I Consider a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can often be an excellent option for women interested in comprehensively addressing cosmetic concerns such as breast sagging and volume loss, loose abdominal skin, stretch marks, and/or excess fat buildups – all of which can result from pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Based on your unique needs and desires, a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures can be custom-designed to help you restore your pre-pregnancy figure with beautiful, natural looking results. A mommy makeover may include procedures such as:
When considering a mommy makeover, timing is essential to achieving – and maintaining – optimal outcomes. If you have recently had a child, we strongly recommended that you wait until you’ve completed breastfeeding. Furthermore, if you are considering having another child in the future, you may want to delay scheduling a mommy makeover as a new pregnancy and the associated changes to your body could compromise your results.
Another factor to keep in mind is that the recovery from a mommy makeover procedure typically requires about two weeks of rest, depending on the particular procedures received. During this time, you will be cautioned to avoid lifting any significant amount of weight. For this reason, we generally advise our patients at Art Plastic Surgery to schedule their treatment when they have ample time to fully recover following surgery.
Ultimately, by heeding these basic guidelines in regard to the timing of your mommy makeover, you can help maximize the final outcome of your procedure.
