Should I Lose Weight Before a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Nearby West Palm Beach

Many women gain extra weight during their pregnancies. Depending on your personal body goals, you may want to shed some pounds before undergoing a mommy makeover. However, there is no “ideal weight” that you need to achieve before a mommy makeover.

No Ideal Weight for Mommy Makeover

If you are unhappy with your current weight, it is a good idea to begin a healthy diet and exercise routine to lose unwanted pounds. A mommy makeover is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss solution.

Once you have reached a plateau with your weight loss and are near your personal ideal weight, then a mommy makeover can help you achieve the final results you are looking for. If you undergo a mommy makeover and then lose a significant amount of weight, you can adversely affect your results, especially breast surgery, which may then require a revision. As an added benefit, as you near your own ideal weight, you may need less liposuction or none at all.
