What is Mommy Makeover?

Understanding what a mommy makeover does

Contrary to popular belief, a mommy makeover cannot snap patients back to their pre-baby selves mere weeks or months after giving birth. Attempting to do the aforementioned simply would not be safe. You must keep in mind that both pregnancy and childbirth put immense stress on your body, so having surgery soon afterward would be dangerous. Any reputable plastic surgeon will require you to wait at least six months after giving birth before having invasive plastic surgery. This will give your abdominal tissue a chance to heal fully before you have a tummy tuck.

They employ a few different strategies. First and foremost, they tend to work with personal trainers and nutritionists during pregnancy. By eating a healthy diet and engaging in safelight exercise, they prevent the pounds from piling on in the first place (ergo, much of their rapid weight loss is just the loss of "water weight" as hormone-induced bloating subsides following childbirth). We suggest that you do the same; many people treat being pregnant as an opportunity to binge on usually "forbidden" foods, but this exacerbates the aesthetic issues associated with pregnancy.

You will also have more loose skin in need of surgical resection (via Tummy Tuck Surgery Beverly Hills). On the other hand, if you can avoid gaining too much extra weight during pregnancy, it becomes more likely that you can get away with a mini tummy tuck afterward.

If you have a full Mommy Makeover, you must understand that your recovery period will not be brief. Tummy tuck surgery, in particular, has a very long recovery period; you can expect to spend two to three months healing after this surgery.

Lastly, it's important to be aware that the results of your surgery will not be evident immediately. During the first three to six weeks of your recovery period, your abdomen and breasts will be swollen. This is not usually anything to be worried about; it's just your body's natural inflammatory response, which aids in healing. Your breasts and stomach will, therefore, appear larger than you hoped they would be, but this effect is only temporary.
