When Should You Consider a Mommy Makeover?

As a woman, there is no greater reward and no greater sacrifice than being a mother. You love your children to the moon and back, but you sacrificed a lot to bring them into this world. One of the first sacrifices you make to your children is carrying them within your womb for nine months. This time is not just uncomfortable. It completely changes the shape of your body.

If you want to go back to your pre-mom figure, you should start with a strict diet and exercise plan. If you aren’t sure how to get yourself in good health and physical condition, talk to your doctor about your options. If diet and exercise alone won’t restore your figure, you may want to consider cosmetic reconstruction.

A mommy makeover is actually a set of plastic surgery procedures that will bring your body back to its pre-pregnancy state. These procedures might include a breast lift or augmentation, a butt lift, liposuction, or a tummy tuck. 

But it is important that you don’t rush into a mommy makeover before your body is ready. Here are some things to consider before jumping in.

  • Are you finished having children? You should put your mommy makeover on hold until after you are done having children. This way your results will be permanent.
  • Do you have a good diet and exercise routine? The mommy makeover will snap your body back into shape, but it won’t keep it there. You have to put in the effort to maintain your results.
  • Are you breastfeeding? While you can breastfeed with breast implants, you shouldn’t have breast surgery before you are done breastfeeding. Breastfeeding changes the shape and volume of your breasts. And until you are no longer doing so, it can greatly affect your results of a breast lift or augmentation.

If you believe you are ready for a mommy makeover, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
