Five Ways to See if You Are Ready For Your Mommy MakeoverJuly 6, 2021
Mommy Makeover Surgery is designed to address the ways pregnancy and nursing change the body. Typically a combination of breast and body procedures, mommy makeover surgery may include:
- Breast lift with implants
- Tummy tuck
- Brazilian butt lift
In some cases, non-surgical options such as Evolve and Kybella® may be utilized as well. As with surgical procedures, this is largely dependent on the needs and goals of the individual.
Good Mommy Makeover Candidates
You can see if you are ready for a mommy makeover by answering these five simple questions:
- Am I done having children?
Mommy makeover surgery will address the physical changes brought about by pregnancy. Having more children can alter or even undo your results.
- Am I close to my goal weight?
Mommy makeover surgery is best for women who are close to their goal weight. Body contouring procedures can sculpt and tone the frame, but should not be considered as weight loss procedures
- Am I able to take time off from familial and work duties to recover?
Mommy makeover surgery will require a recovery period during which you will need to limit many of your normal activities. It is important to have help during this time so that you can fully rest and recover
- Am I willing to follow all pre and postoperative directions?
Closely following all of the directions provided by our office will help to prevent unnecessary complications. Making sure to follow directions can also help ensure the most pleasing results
- Am I able to take steps to maintain my results?
Once removed, fat and excess skin cannot come back, but new fat can accumulate and skin can stretch again. It is important that you take steps to maintain your results or you may risk losing them
