5 Things to Know Before Having a Mommy Makeover

Few changes are as fulfilling, meaningful and powerful as giving birth to a child. It’s a great big change to your life, to your family and to the world itself. But it also means a bunch of small changes for your body, as well. You may end up with more weight, you may get stretchmarks, or your breasts may change shape or lose volume. You feel grateful for the big change you’ve brought into the world but wishing you still had the body you had before it happened. But like the old saying goes: change is good. Mothers who want to get back in touch with the active bodies they had before pregnancy may not have access to a time machine, but they have the next best thing available to them: a mommy makeover!

Let Your Body Heal Before a Mommy Makeover

wait for a mommy makeoverHaving 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. Related: Is the Mommy Makeover Right For You? 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
