Should I Get a Mommy Makeover?

Should I Get a Mommy Makeover?

Many new mothers whose bodies have undergone significant physical changes ask themselves, “Should I get a Mommy Makeover?” Countless women have chosen to undergo this transformative procedure, and that number is only increasing as time goes on. While it may not be the right choice for everyone, a Mommy Makeover can provide significant benefits for body shape, self-confidence, and self-image. Here are some of the things you should consider about when you’re wondering whether to get a Mommy Makeover.

What’s in a Mommy Makeover?

First and foremost, you need to understand what is involved in a Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover is not just one plastic surgery procedure, but a combination of procedures performed in one sitting. The procedures included in a Mommy Makeover can be customized to meet your individual needs. Most commonly, they include liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift surgeries to correct the major physical changes most often caused by pregnancy.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

A good candidate for a Mommy Makeover has experienced physical changes to their body shape due to pregnancy and/or major weight loss. These changes typically include some combination of sagging breasts, overstretched abdominal muscles, loose skin, and stubborn fat. Candidates should also identify with the following:

  • Healthy non-smokers: Because a Mommy Makeover is a major surgery, candidates should also be non-smokers in good general health.
  • Financially prepared: Candidates should also be in a good financial position to afford it, as this procedure can be expensive.
  • Emotionally prepared: This is a major surgery, which means major changes to your body shape. Be sure you are emotionally prepared for it.
  • Prepared for time off: The recovery after a Mommy Makeover can be difficult, especially if it involves a tummy tuck (as most Mommy Makeovers do). You will need help with childcare, time off work, and time to rest, so it is important that candidates be prepared for these things.

Who is NOT a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

It’s important to note that women who are still considering having more children are NOT good candidates for a Mommy Makeover. Future pregnancies could reverse the results of your Mommy Makeover procedure, so it is best to wait until you have finished having children to pursue this experience. Similarly, women who are currently nursing/breastfeeding are not good candidates and should wait until they have weaned their children to seek Mommy Makeover surgery.

Other Reasons to Consider a Mommy Makeover

In addition to restoring body shape and correcting the physical changes wrought by pregnancy, there are other reasons to consider a Mommy Makeover. One is the potential this procedure has to significantly boost your self-confidence. Motherhood is hard enough without feeling down on yourself, and a Mommy Makeover could enhance your self-esteem so that you feel more empowered to tackle the challenges before you.

Another reason to consider a Mommy Makeover is a desire to improve physical comfort and functionality. For example, if your clothing fits poorly due to loose skin, sagging breasts, and/or stubborn fat, a Mommy Makeover could transform your figure to give you a more natural shape and contour.

Lastly, there are practical reasons to consider a Mommy Makeover. If you are wanting to make improvements to your body shape, in many cases it makes more sense to pursue a Mommy Makeover rather than wait and save up for multiple individual procedures. Compared to separate plastic surgery procedures, a Mommy Makeover is more cost efficient AND time-saving. Your cumulative recovery time will ultimately be shorter, and you will be able to enjoy your full, transformative results all at once (rather than in stages). Also, by restoring your body shape, a Mommy Makeover can help you feel better equipped to be an active and present mom with your children.  

A Mommy Makeover could positively impact your life and help you feel your best. But ultimately, the choice to get a Mommy Makeover is a personal choice. We feel privileged to have been a part of helping you on your journey and hope you now feel more empowered to make the best choice for you and your body.
