Let Your Body Heal Before a Mommy Makeover

Having a child is such a wonderful experience, but as you know, it can change a woman’s body in many ways. There might come a time when diet and exercise simply can’t give you the results you’re looking for. But the big question from our patients is…

How long do I have to wait to get a mommy makeover?

Giving birth, while a beautiful time in a woman’s life,  takes a toll on the body. Not only aesthetically, but physically. It’s incredibly important to give your body time to heal after delivery. A woman’s body will also make its own natural changes following delivery, and Dr. Brown likes to see those changes happen before presenting plastic surgery as an option.

Usually a woman’s body will be completely healed and ready for a surgical procedure after a few months. During those months a few things will happen:

  • The breast tissue will no longer be engorged with milk
  • The ‘baby weight’ will start to diminish
  • A c-section will have healed (if applicable)

Mommy makeovers will address a few areas of the body that we have chosen as the problem areas for women after childbirth. The mommy makeover includes the following cosmetic procedures:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast augmentation and/or breast lift
  • Liposuction
