A mommy makeover is a customized plastic surgery plan that has the goal of helping you regain your pre-baby body. It can involve things like breast lifts, a tummy tuck, vaginal procedures, and more. Many women are interested in this type of treatment, but they might wonder when they should get started with it. When is the best time for a mommy makeover? This blog post provides some helpful information.

Wait Until You Are Finished Having Children

It is best to wait to have a mommy makeover until after your last pregnancy. That is simply because getting pregnant after your surgeries could undo your results and might lead to the need for additional procedures.

What if you have an unexpected pregnancy after your mommy makeover? Your past surgeries should not increase the risk of complications or adversely affect the health of your unborn child.

You Should Be Finished Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding and pregnancy can change the size, shape, and feel of your breasts. You should wait 6 months or so after you finish breastfeeding before your mommy makeover. This gives your breasts time to stabilize somewhat, so your surgical team will be able to figure out exactly what they need to do to help you reach your goals.

Choose a Time When You Can Rest

Depending on the extent of your mommy makeover, you might need to limit your activities for several weeks after your surgery. Therefore, you should not choose a busy time of year. Many women choose to get their procedures done during winter break, when they will not have to worry about driving their kids around town.

Of course, if winter break is a busy time for you, you could always opt for another time of year. Just be sure to coordinate with your family members so they can be prepared to help you with your usual household duties while you are recovering.

Try to Lose Your Baby Weight First

Some women gain a significant amount of weight during pregnancy. If that happened to you, you may wish to try to lose a bit of fat before your mommy makeover. Usually, the best results are experienced by patients who are already close to their ideal weight.

If you have questions about how your body weight and composition might affect your surgical journey, ask your medical team. They want you to be well-informed before you commit to anything!

If you are done adding new members to your family, you might be a candidate for a mommy makeover! A consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon can help you decide when to move forward with your procedures.
