Motherhood is a miracle. It changes your sleep schedule, priorities, perspective, and your body. On this last point, if you are having difficulty reclaiming the curves you had before experiencing pregnancy, I can help. As a board-certified plastic surgeon and a mom, I not only understand the challenges that come with being a mom but your options as well for reclaiming confidence in your body.

Common Changes to Your Body During Pregnancy

As your baby grew inside you, she or he may have pushed your abdominal wall beyond expectation. Your breasts may have also expanded more than anticipated, not to mention the residual weight gain you accumulated during this time. Now consider the fact that motherhood often prevents you from hitting the gym or having a regular fitness routine as you could in your child-free, carefree days. Not to mention the kid snacks and eating on the go that usually occurs as a mom. Add up all of those factors and you have the recipe for dissatisfaction.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is any combination of procedures that help to restore your pre-pregnancy appearance. Since the breasts and abdomen are the primary areas that change with pregnancies, a mommy makeover will often include a breast and abdominal procedure. A typical combination of cosmetic procedures might include an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a breast procedure such as an augmentation, lift, or reduction, and liposuction. That being said, we are all different, and pregnancy affects each of us uniquely. You may want to improve other areas of your body instead. For example, you could consider a vaginal rejuvenation or eyelid surgery if you have bags under your eyes or hooding of the upper eyelids. Your mommy makeover procedure will vary based on your personal goals and health.

When you come in for your consultation, we will discuss your unique concerns and frustrations to determine the procedures that will be right for you. As your partner in your surgical journey, I will go over every detail with you to help you understand your options and the treatment process to guide you to the best results.

When Should I Get a Mommy Makeover?

You may be wondering how soon after childbirth to start thinking about a mommy makeover. Ideally, you should wait until your body is back to a stable weight near your normal or pre-pregnancy weight to achieve optimum results. If you are interested in a breast procedure as part of your mommy makeover, you should also wait until your breasts have returned to their normal size. Another point to consider is whether or not you would like to have more children. If you are still planning on adding to your family, it may be wise to delay your mommy makeover until after your final pregnancy.
