Are you happy being a mom, but miss the body you had before pregnancy? You are not alone, because many women try diet and exercise, but are still not satisfied with the way they look after pregnancy. That’s why a mommy makeover has become such as popular procedure. But does a mommy makeover make sense if you plan on having more kids?
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover refers to a combination of procedures that are done to help women restore their pre-pregnancy body. Breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction, are the most common mommy makeover procedures, as they target the breasts and tummy, which are the usual problem areas.
Does a Mommy Makeover Make Sense If I Plan On Having More Kids?
Doctors generally advise patients not to have a mommy makeover if they intend to have more children soon, so it really depends on the timeline. If you are planning to have more kids within 2-3 years it would be best to delay surgery, because pregnancy will undo the results of mommy makeover procedures such as a tummy tuck or breast lift (learn more).
A mommy makeover typically consists of several procedures, so it requires significant investment in both money and recovery time. Ideally you want to enjoy the results of your mommy makeover for as long as possible. Therefore, if you are going to wait several years before having more children, it’s okay to go ahead with your mommy makeover.
