Pregnancy can significantly change your body over a short period of time. Those changes can be challenging to get rid of, like extra fatty tissue, sagging breasts, and damaged abdominal muscles. You may have heard of a Mommy Makeover, but do you know how soon you can have one after you have given birth? Find out here!
What is a Mommy Makeover?
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we offer Mommy Makeovers, which are a selection of procedures that can be done to restore your prepregnancy body. How many procedures you choose is up to you. We create a personalized plan that fits your goals and have cosmetic surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”). There are also non-surgical methods of rejuvenating your post-pregnancy appearance.
How Soon After Giving Birth Can I Have a Mommy Makeover?
Ideally, you should wait 6 months to a year after giving birth before having any surgical procedure associated with a Mommy Makeover. Waiting for that time will help you recover the right amount of time after giving birth.
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
The benefits of a Mommy Makeover are numerous, even if you choose just one procedure. Depending on the procedure or procedures you choose, a Mommy Makeover can:
- Eliminate sagging skin on your tummy
- Tighten your protruding abdomen
- Enhance breast size after losing firmness and size
- Reduce your breast size if you have overly large breasts
- Remove stubborn areas of fat from pregnancy
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
You may be a candidate for a Mommy Makeover if you are concerned about your post-pregnancy body. An ideal candidate has recovered from pregnancy, is considered to be medically healthy, is within their target weight, and has realistic expectations with surgical procedures.
To have a Mommy Makeover, we advise that you wait six months after breastfeeding before getting one. You also should be done with having children because becoming pregnant again can reverse the benefits of your Mommy Makeover.
