Although becoming a mom is a wonderful experience, many women find it difficult to accept the body changes that occur because of pregnancy and breastfeeding. That’s why mommy makeover surgery has become so popular. However, women struggling with body changes often wonder if doing a mommy makeover makes sense, if they plan on getting pregnant again.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures that are done to help women get back their pre-baby figure, and achieve their body contouring goals. The procedures typically focus on the breasts and abdomen and may include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and/or breast lift, and liposuction.
Does a mommy makeover make sense if I plan on getting pregnant again?
Plastic surgeons generally advise women to wait until they are finished having children, before undergoing a mommy makeover. Although it’s safe to get pregnant after a mommy makeover, doctors generally advise against it, because a future pregnancy will likely reverse some of the improvements gained from the cosmetic surgery procedures done.
Pregnancy impacts the body in several ways, most women experience droopy breasts, stretched abdominal muscles, and weight gain. These changes may reoccur if you get pregnant after having a mommy makeover.
If you’re thinking about having a mommy makeover but plan to get pregnant in the future, it’s best to discuss your options with a board certified plastic surgeon, to make sure your timing is right.
