When is the Right Time for a Mommy Makeover

When it is time to consider surgery, we urge all patients to do their homework before having surgery. After the birth of a child, it takes several months for your body to return to its pre-pregnancy form. During pregnancy, the body makes hormones and changes to allow for the birth and growth of the new child. Not only does the abdomen have to stretch to accommodate the growing child, but breasts engorge to help provide milk for the baby. Once these changes are no longer necessary, the skin will contract to varying degrees in an effort to return the body to its pre-pregnancy state. These surgeries are body contouring procedures, not weight loss procedures. To ensure that you have a long-lasting result, It’s important to have stopped breast-feeding because your breasts need to return to their normal size and shape and stop producing milk. Additionally, we advise patients to have completed their family before proceeding.
