Becoming a mother is an incredible blessing for many women. While you may be proud of your body for the amazing accomplishment that it completed in bringing your child into the world, you may not like the permanent changes that pregnancy and childbirth has brought upon your body and skin. Many women struggle with the look of their body after pregnancy and may be interested in getting a mommy makeover surgery.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The purpose of a mommy makeover is to refine and restore a woman’s body after childbirth. Pregnancy and birth are very hard on the body and can leave lasting effects that bother many women. A mommy makeover is a fully customizable surgery that treats the specific affected areas that pregnancy altered. Some popular surgical treatments that are associated with the mommy makeover include:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Labiaplasty
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Buttock augmentation

This surgery is directly catered to your needs to help you feel more confident in your new body. Being a parent is a wonderful experience, but there is no need for you to sacrifice your body image. Every woman’s treatment will look different because every woman’s pregnancy is different. Plastic surgeons will take your thoughts, opinions, and feelings into account when suggesting possible mommy makeover improvements to you.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Depending on the goal of your mommy makeover surgery, your benefits can tend to vary. However, past mommy makeover surgical patients have received a variety of benefits that have made them feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies such as:

  • The correction of sagging skin around the stomach and breasts
  • Improved breast symmetry
  • Removal of fat from the abdomen and other pockets
  • Reparation of separated abdomen muscles

Many women love the results they receive from their mommy makeover surgery because it targets the specific areas that they are concerned with. Each woman will experience different benefits associated with their mommy makeover surgery.

When is The Perfect Time to Get The Surgery?

The prospect of receiving a mommy makeover can be exciting for many women, but there is a time frame in which they should wait to have the procedure done. Many doctors and plastic surgeons will only suggest a mommy makeover to a patient who:

  • Is fully recovered from their childbirth
  • Has stopped breastfeeding their children for at least a few months so that breasts can return to their normal size.

After your surgery, you will likely need help caring for your little one as you won’t be able to lift more than 5-10 pounds. It is important to keep this in mind if you plan on moving forward with the surgery.
