How Soon Is Too Soon for a Mommy Makeover?

How Soon Is Too Soon for a Mommy Makeover?After pregnancy and nursing, many women experience undesirable physical changes, including weakened abdominal muscles, stubborn surplus fat on the hips, thighs or abdomen and saggy, unshapely breasts. If you feel your body has changed too much since becoming a mother, Dr. Donald Hause in Sacramento offers a potential solution: the mommy makeover, which is a combination of personalized surgical procedures designed to restore or even improve your pre-pregnancy body. 

Your Personalized Mommy Makeover

Your mommy makeover will be personalized just for you. The specific combination of procedures performed will be selected by your board certified plastic surgeon. During your mommy makeover consultation, you should be clear and specific, making your desires, needs and goals clear; you should also trust your surgeon’s judgement as he provides a realistic overview of the procedures needed to achieve your desired results. Depending on your goals, your mommy makeover may consist of a customized combination of the following procedures:

The Timing of Your Mommy Makeover

Your mommy makeover should be performed after you have finished having biological children and do not plan to become pregnant again. How quickly depends on your health, lifestyle and the advice of your surgeon. Six months post-pregnancy is the often-quoted timeline, but it is completely dependent on your personal pregnancy recovery. You’ll want to return to your near pre-pregnancy weight, as well as allow your abdominal area to recover before beginning your mommy makeover. The more physically fit you were prior to childbirth, the faster your body should recover and stabilize.

Still Breastfeeding?

If you are still breastfeeding, it is advisable to wait six months after you have weaned your baby — particularly if a breast augmentation or breast lift will be a part of your mommy makeover. This will allow your breast tissue ample time to recover from breastfeeding and increase the chances you will enjoy the results from your breast enhancement.
