It is such a momentous part of life to expand your family. From the moment you feel that first flutter, you may develop big dreams for your and your child’s future. At some point, however, the physical aspect of motherhood may present frustrating cosmetic complaints. To address them, you may consider a Mommy Makeover. With a Mommy Makeover comes immense positive changes that can restore your sense of satisfaction with your body. It may also come with a few hurdles to overcome. With that, you must carefully consider the timing of your surgical makeover process. Here, we discuss how you can time your Mommy Makeover perfectly.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Bogue performs Mommy Makeover procedures frequently. Each one may look a little different. The goal of the Mommy Makeover is to help you attain the unique goals that you have for your body. You may read about this procedure as a way to get your pre-Mommy body back, but we know that the outcome of the right combination of procedures can accomplish remarkable results. Some of the common techniques that are considered for Mommy Makeover patients include breast surgery, liposuction, and abdominoplasty.

Breast surgery is a customized procedure that may involve breast implants to enlarge the breasts or a simple breast lift. Depending on the situation, it may include breast implant exchange or explanation or even breast reduction. This is the benefit of seeing an experienced plastic surgeon; your Mommy Makeover involves a completely customized process that revolves around your shape and your goals.

Liposuction is an advantageous aspect of a Mommy Makeover because this technique can eliminate the unwanted fat that hasn’t gone away after childbirth and hormone regulation. Your Mommy Makeover can include liposuction in one or more areas. While the tummy is a common area for liposuction, so are the thighs, the back, and under the chin.

Abdominoplasty, known as tummy tuck surgery, is the procedure that can correct the laxity and muscle separation that occurred during your pregnancy. Whether you have extremely loose and saggy muscle tissue or it is skin and connective tissue that is the concern, the abdominoplasty technique paves the way to a flat, tight midsection.

Mommy Makeover Timing

You’ve probably heard that it’s best to schedule your Mommy Makeover after you have completed your family. It is true that getting pregnant after your customized treatment is not the best idea. It is not unsafe, but it could threaten your surgical outcome. Knowing that you are done having children is just one guiding aspect of your Mommy Makeover timing, though. Additionally, you will want to arrange your surgical procedure when you are certain that you will have sufficient time to fully recover. Your physical capacity will be significantly limited for one to two weeks after a Mommy Makeover. No cooking, no picking up the kiddos or doing bath time, or even playing games that could affect healing incisions and other tissues. With a good deal of support from loved ones, your recovery process can be made much better.
