No doubt, your children are the greatest joys in your life. But that doesn’t mean you need to be pleased with the marks they have left on your body. Many women will experience skin laxity, sagging breasts and weakened abdominal muscles after becoming mothers, and for some, this can be bothersome.
A mommy makeover can help address these changes. However, you must time your surgery correctly for optimal and lasting results.
The Best Time for a Mommy Makeover
A quality mommy makeover requires the right timing.
You want the results of your mommy makeover to last long term, so you should wait until you are done having children. If the appearance of your breasts concerns you, it is important that you are done breastfeeding as well. We also ask that you are at a stable and healthy weight before surgery, as any weight loss or gain could compromise the results.
Another factor to consider when planning the right time for a mommy makeover is the recovery period. A mommy makeover is a combination procedure and may include a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation and liposuction all at the same time. This comes together to equal a pretty significant recovery period lasting several weeks.
Plan your surgery around a time when you can most easily get the help you need. For example, if your support person is a teacher, summer is best. If your kids tend to spend winter break with the grandparents, that might be best.
