Your body goes through many changes between pregnancy and childbirth, and while sometimes it bounces back, other times, it does not. This is where surgery can help. A mommy makeover is a combination of surgeries designed to help you look and feel your best after starting a family. This surgery can help you obtain your pre-pregnancy figure. Here is what you should know.
Top Things To Know About Getting a Mommy Makeover
1. There Is No One Standard Mommy Makeover
While many mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck and breast surgery (either a lift or an augmentation), many other procedures fit under the mommy makeover umbrella besides those.
For instance, perhaps you opt for liposuction instead of or in addition to a tummy tuck. Liposuction can reduce fat that has not come off as you have tried to lose weight since giving birth. It can also help improve the contour of your body after surgery.
2. You Should Be Finished Having Kids Before Your Surgeries
Since these surgeries undo what pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations caused, or at least reduce their effects, you should only consider a mommy makeover after you have had children.
Otherwise, the money you put toward surgery can be wasted, as bodily changes can leave you right back where you started, with extra fat deposits and drooping breasts.
3. Mommy Makeovers Are Not Weight Loss Solutions
While a tummy tuck and liposuction can remove fat and contour your tummy, the weight changes are minimal at best, with only up to five pounds lost. Before a mommy makeover, you should be within 25 pounds of your goal weight.
