How Soon is Too Soon to Get a Mommy Makeover?

If you are a new mom and struggling to get your pre-baby figure back, don’t feel like you are alone. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding leave many women with slightly less than desirable changes to their bodies. Fortunately, a mommy makeover from Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon Dr. John Park can help you restore your body back to its pre-pregnancy shape, giving you the energy and confidence to be the best mom you can be.

A common concern when electing to have a mommy makeover is how long you should wait after giving birth before undergoing any procedures. Simply put, there is no exact time limit on how long you must wait. However, several factors need to be taken into consideration when determining if you are ready for a mommy makeover.

Do You Plan On Having More Children?

If you still have plans to add to your family that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t have a mommy makeover; however, it’s important to note that having a mommy makeover before you are finished having children can affect your overall long-term results. For example, if you have a tummy tuck as part of your mommy makeover and then decide to have another child, you run the risk of reversing or altering your results by stretching your abdominal muscles once again due to pregnancy. This may cause you to need a revision tummy tuck and/or liposuction.

Have You Finished Breastfeeding?

Whether or not you are breastfeeding should be factored into the timeframe for your mommy makeover. During pregnancy and breastfeeding your breasts become engorged with milk. This may change the size and shape of your breasts. While breastfeeding, your breasts will remain enlarged making it challenging to determine an accurate prediction of what your breast augmentation results will be.

Are You Physically and Mentally Ready?

After giving birth, you will go through many transformations, both physically and mentally. For optimum results, you want your body to naturally recover from some of these transformations, such as your abdomen and breasts contracting back to their pre-pregnancy state, and your hormones leveling off. Becoming a new mom can be intellectually challenging with many stressors as well. You’ll want to consider how undergoing surgery will impact how you’re able to care for your child, as there will be a recovery period. It’s essential to ensure that you will be able to meet the needs of your baby.
