Posted on Mar 18,2021 By Dr. Nakamura

As a mother, you know the joy of having children and making memories with them is unmatched. However, having kids means you will notice specific changes in your body. Among them, you may experience a few extra pounds around the middle that you simply cannot lose or saggy breasts that can be an area of insecurity. Certain changes don’t happen with dieting and exercise alone, but there is another option: mommy makeover surgery.

Mommy makeover surgery can provide you with the body you once enjoyed before having your kids. It can include any procedure that involves parts of your body that have dramatically changed since your pregnancy and childbirth. Generally, there are 7 things you should know about mommy makeovers.

 

1.You shouldn’t have the procedure until you’re done having children

If you want more kids, you should wait before having the surgery as it can undo the results you get, making you have to go back to square one.

2.With a mommy makeover, it’s common to have multiple cosmetic surgery procedures

Every patient is different, but mommy makeovers usually entail, at the very least, a procedure like a tummy tuck and a procedure involving the breasts. The latter could be a breast augmentation or breast lift or even a combination of the two. It all depends on what the patient wants and needs.

3.Your mommy makeover should only be done when you’re at your ideal weight

You should only have the procedure once you’re at your goal weight. You don’t want to be too skinny or have a few extra pounds you prefer to shed. A weight you wish to maintain permanently is best.

4.You can add other procedures with a mommy makeover

Mommy makeovers are designed to have procedures added so that it can be tailored to your needs. Those that can be added include liposuction.

5.You should take a few weeks off for recovery

Your pain and discomfort should subside after the first week of your mommy makeover. However, it can take a full week to 10 days before you should drive. Usually, it takes around four weeks before you can resume your normal daily activities.

6.Certain seasons are better for having a mommy makeover

You can decide what season works best for you to have your mommy makeover. You should have someone close to you come over to help with the kids during your recovery or have your significant other or spouse take time off.

7.Have a consultation before your mommy makeover

It is always a good idea to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon before getting any surgery. You want to ensure that you and the doctor are in sync and agree about your goals. This can also ensure that you know what to expect.
