The joy of motherhood can be one of the most rewarding events in a woman’s life. However, the enjoyment of having a little one can leave a woman’s body different than it was before. During a woman’s pregnancy, the skin, muscles, and tissues surrounding the abdomen begin to stretch out, excess fat is stored in different areas of the body, and the breasts change in size and shape. Over time, these new changes can become bothersome and make a woman feel embarrassed about her figure. Dr. Baker’s Mommy Makeover procedure can address several areas of a woman’s body to help her regain a youthful appearance and feel beautiful, confident, and sexy about the way she looks.

Understanding What a Mommy Makeover Does

Mommy Makeover surgery combines several surgical procedures to address different areas of the body (such as the breasts and abdomen) that have been affected by pregnancy. These procedures include tummy tuck surgery, breast augmentation, liposuction, and breast lift surgery. Many women look into undergoing Mommy Makeover surgery because of the multiple areas it can correct as well as the shorter recovery period.

Although a Mommy Makeover can offer incredible results for a woman’s body, this procedure is not meant to help patients lose weight, nor can it make them look 20 years old again. Keep in mind that pregnancy and childbirth can put immense stress on the body, so undergoing surgery soon afterward would be dangerous. Any reputable procedure will require patients to wait at least six months to one year after giving birth before undergoing plastic surgery. This amount of time will allow the abdominal tissue to heal fully. While there are limitations to what a Mommy Makeover can do, as long as a patient goes into surgery with realistic expectations and maintains a stable, healthy weight afterward, she will feel rejuvenated and better than she could have ever imagined.

Am I a Good Candidate for Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Whether it is addressing sagging breasts, the abdomen, or localized fat in noticeable areas, Mommy Makeover surgery can help patients obtain a more youthful figure. Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover must be in good health and have realistic expectations. Women looking to improve the shape and tone of their body are also good candidates for this procedure. It is important to note that women interested in undergoing Mommy Makeover surgery should also be finished having children to ensure the best results possible.
