Motherhood is one of life’s milestones that give joy and a sense of fulfillment to women. Despite being one of the most gratifying experiences in a mom’s life, pregnancy can lead to incredible changes in a mother’s body that many find overwhelming.
If you’re experiencing bodily changes during and after pregnancy that no amount of diet and exercise can correct, a mommy makeover can address these issues. A mommy makeover is a combination of different cosmetic procedures that can correct sagging breasts, flatten the stomach, fix abdominal muscles that have separated during pregnancy, remove stubborn fat, and many others.
What makes a mommy makeover appealing to mothers is the fact that it can correct multiple concerns in a single operation and recovery period. Additionally, you can tailor your surgical makeover to fit your needs, giving you the option to choose which procedures you want in your treatment plan.
Are You Ready for a Mommy Makeover?
If you are considering a makeover, the first question you need to ask yourself is whether the timing is right for you. Consulting with Dr. Clinton will help you decide if you’re ready for a mommy makeover. In the meantime, here are questions you need to ask yourself to determine if this is the right time to schedule a consultation with him:
- Do I still plan to have children in the future?
If your answer to this question is affirmative, you might want to delay your makeover for a few years. While you and your baby won’t be at risk in case of a pregnancy after surgery, the surgical results may change. For this reason, Dr. Clinton will always advise patients to wait until they’re done with childbearing before getting a mommy makeover.
- Are my breastfeeding days over?
If you’re done with breastfeeding, it’s best to wait for at least six months before getting breast augmentation or a breast lift. This will ensure that you will achieve the results you want.
- Am I in my ideal weight range?
While mommy makeovers can restore your pre-baby body and enhance your appearance further, it’s not designed for weight loss. Some procedures, such as a tummy tuck and liposuction, will require you to reach at least close to your ideal weight to achieve optimum results.
Now that you know about the perfect timing for a mommy makeover, you can decide if you’re ready for it or not. Another way to determine if you’re physically ready for the series of procedures is to consult with Dr. Clinton.
