If childbirth has left your body much different than you remember, and you’d like to undo those changes, a mommy makeover may be right for you. More and more moms are treating themselves to mommy makeover surgery in a bid to reclaim theirpre-baby body. One question plastic surgeon’s frequently get asked about the procedure is – Am I a candidate for a mommy makeover.
Mommy makeover surgery
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures that are designed to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. It usually includes breast augmentation and/or a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. After pregnancy some women find that their breasts are droopy and deflated, and they have excess skin in the lower abdomen. These are just some of the reasons they choose to have a mommy makeover.
Are you a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
If you’ve already worked off your ‘baby weight’ and are at a stable weight, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Women that are physically fit and healthy make better candidates for surgery, and get better results. A mommy makeover will help to fix those areas that diet and exercise can’t.
Women that are done having children are also good candidates for a mommy makeover. Having more children after a mommy makeover may require additional procedures, since changes in weight and breast size and shape are likely to occur. Candidatesfor surgery should have alsofinished breast feeding for at least 6 months, and should also have realistic expectations about surgery.
