The Mommy Makeover is the latest craze to hit the world of plastic surgery, and for good reason – it’s an innovative procedure that combines popular treatments in a way that helps address common problem spots for women after pregnancy.
From breast augmentations to tummy tucks to liposuction, the Mommy Makeover can be customized to target and address any mother’s specific needs and requirements. These procedures are typically done around the same time, meaning women can get their pre-baby bodies back without spending tons of time in the plastic surgeon’s office.
But there’s always one question that hangs over the Mommy Makeover procedure: How much time should you wait after having your baby to get the treatment done?
As it turns out, there are a few guidelines that women can use to determine if it’s the right time to have a Mommy Makeover. These include:
- You’re done having children: The ideal Mommy Makeover candidate will be done having children, as many of the procedures involved can be compromised by an additional pregnancy. For example, if extra skin is removed in a tummy tuck, an additional pregnancy can stretch the skin out again leading to a dissatisfying result.
- You have help during recovery: Depending on the treatments you undergo, you may need help around the house for a week or two. Additionally, a breast augmentation procedure and tummy tuck requires you to avoid lifting anything for the first couple of weeks – even possibly your own child. That’s why it’s recommended that mothers have constant help and care, as it makes it easier to care for children during recovery.
- You’re done with lactation: If you’re still breastfeeding, it’s best to wait until you’re done with lactation to undergo the Mommy Makeover. It is important that the breast has stopped producing milk and that any changes from breastfeeding have resolved so that an ideal plan is created for the best possible result.
