The procedures involved in a mommy makeover often include a tummy tuck, liposuction and/or breast enhancement. As you’d expect, this combination of surgeries can greatly enhance your figure and help restore your body to the feminine, youthful shape you enjoyed before your pregnancy.
However, there are several things to keep in mind when planning your mommy makeover to ensure that your results bring out the best in your body.
The Right Body at the Right Time
If you’re serious about getting the best possible results from your mommy makeover, getting the timing right really counts. Waiting until your family is complete is an important (and rather logical) point to remember. Remember how your body changed during your first pregnancy? That’s what brought you here, and a second pregnancy can change your body just as much.
Make sure that you’re at a healthy weight before you have your mommy makeover as well. We understand how raising kids can compel you to reach for the quick energy boost of those sugary drinks, but being at a healthy weight may shorten your recovery time and give you better results as well.
Getting the Most Out of Your Procedure
While you may have your heart set on the exact same procedures as your best friend got for her mommy makeover, listen to what your plastic surgeon recommends. Not every woman has the same needs for body contouring surgery. And hey, your surgeon’s the one with the white coat, right?
Having said that, it’s important that you have an honest discussion with your surgeon about the type of results you’d like to see. From there, you and your surgeon can plan together for a mommy makeover that gives you a customized outcome, addressing your personal problem spots in the process.
