Is A Mommy Makeover Right For You?

Have pregnancies or breastfeeding taken a toll on your appearance and your self-confidence? It may be time to reclaim your body with a mommy makeover. Here’s what you should know.

Mommy MakeoverWhat is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a customized combination of procedures designed to help you get your body back to the way you want it. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on your abdomen, breasts, and other parts of your body. A mommy makeover sometimes uses breast enhancing procedures such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction, to restore and improve the appearance of the breasts. Mommy makeovers can also include liposuction, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), or mini-abdominoplasty.

Some patients will choose to combine multiple procedures, while others may only need to target one or two areas. In some cases the procedures will be combined into one surgery, while in other situations there will be a series of surgeries. This will depend on your health and your goals.

Who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
If you are healthy, and near your ideal weight, but unhappy with the way pregnancy has changed your body, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover.

It is always important to be as healthy as possible before any surgery. In most cases you’ll get the best results if you’ve attained your pre-pregnancy weight and feel that you are healthy. A mommy makeover shouldn’t be performed until at least 6 weeks after your baby has been born—this gives you time to recover from the birth and shed some of the pregnancy weight.

It may be best to wait until after you’ve finished having children to get a mommy makeover since future pregnancies significantly alter the body. Your doctor can help you determine whether or not it is a good time for a mommy makeover.

How can a mommy makeover benefit you?
A mommy makeover can help you feel more attractive, confident, and happy with your body. Having a positive attitude about your body will also benefit you and your children. To learn more about mommy makeovers schedule a consultation with Dr. Shridharani.
