02 Aug How Soon Is Too Soon To Have a Mommy Makeover After Pregnancy?
After the birth of a child, it can take several months or more for your body to return to its pre-pregnancy form. During your pregnancy, your body went through hormonal changes and of course the stretching that is necessary to accommodate your growing baby. Once these changes are no longer necessary, the skin will begin to contract in varying degrees in an effort to return itself to its pre-pregnancy state.
You will either be content with the after effects, or you won’t. Despite diet and exercise, even after they return to their pre-baby weight, many women find that their breasts sag and there is excess skin where a flat stomach used to reside. A mommy makeover is a surgical procedure to correct the changes that you find undesirable. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction and either a breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation are some of the procedures that can included in a “mommy-makeover”
Everyone recovers from pregnancy on a different time schedule. Give yourself the time that you deserve. Enjoy the new life you worked hard to bring into this world. And then, when it is time to consider surgery, make sure you see a qualified plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Always ask to see photos and most importantly, ask questions and make sure that you like and feel comfortable putting your trust in this individual.
