A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a set of personalized procedures to help a woman achieve a more youthful body contour. These procedures may include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and labiaplasty. This is a popular option following childbirth and can address aging in many areas of the body. Many women choose to undergo this procedure to help restore their pre-baby figures and achieve a boost in overall confidence. Read on to learn more about who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover. 

You are in Good Medical Health

Those who are overall healthy are often great candidates for a mommy makeover, as recovery will be smoother. Individuals who smoke are not ideal candidates, as smoking will negatively impact the healing process. If you are unsure if your medical status prohibits you from undergoing this procedure, schedule a consultation appointment with a skilled plastic surgeon.

You are Finished with Childbearing

Women should be finished with childbearing before undergoing a mommy makeover, as pregnancy can negatively impact the results of this procedure. If you are unsure of whether you could become pregnant again, it is recommended that you wait to have this procedure.

You are at Your Ideal Body Weight

It is important to note that a mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure, so ideal candidates should be close to their ideal body weight. If you need to lose some weight before this procedure, diet and exercise are recommended to healthily reach your goal weight.

You Gave Birth At Least Six Months Ago

While you may wish to undergo this procedure soon following childbirth, you may need to wait a while. Women must give themselves time to recover following birth and should wait at least 6 months before considering a plastic surgery procedure such as a mommy makeover.

You Stopped Breastfeeding At Least Six Months Ago

Did you know that breastfeeding can alter the shape of the breasts? It is recommended that women wait until their breasts settle into a more permanent shape before undergoing a mommy makeover.

You Have a Positive Outlook and Realistic Expectations 

A positive outlook and realistic expectations are key to a positive surgery experience. Speak with your plastic surgeon regarding what to expect regarding results. You can ask to view before and after photos of your plastic surgeon’s work for a better idea of what to expect.
