The mommy makeover is one of our top-requested plastic surgeries, and yet it isn’t actually any one specific surgery. Rather, it refers to a customized suite of cosmetic enhancements that can help women reclaim their post-baby bodies. Each mommy makeover is personalized to fit the needs, lifestyle, and preferences of each individual patient. At Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, Dr. Kay works closely with each patient to ensure she is fully satisfied with the results of her mommy makeover.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
During your consult with Dr. Kay, you will be encouraged to share your aesthetic concerns and goals. Based on this information, Dr. Kay may recommend any of the following procedures:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation or reduction
- Breast lift
Good Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Many women who have given birth are good candidates for surgery. However, at Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, Dr. Kay evaluates each patient individually for safety reasons. You may be a good candidate if:
- You’re in good overall health.
- You’re a non-smoker.
- You have realistic expectations.
- You’ve achieved your ideal body weight or are within that range.
Dr. Kay will need your full medical history in order to make sure it’s safe for you to undergo a mommy makeover.
When to Schedule a Mommy Makeover
When a woman makes the decision to have a mommy makeover, it’s not unusual to want to do it as soon as possible. However, it’s important to carefully schedule these procedures. Note that in some cases, it’s possible to combine all of the desired procedures into one surgical appointment. If you’re planning to have many surgeries performed, however, it may be safer to stagger them. Dr. Kay will provide personalized guidance for your particular situation.
It’s generally best to schedule a mommy makeover surgery after you’ve reached your desired weight range, even if you’re including liposuction. This can allow Dr. Kay to remove excess, post-weight loss skin, giving you a tighter silhouette and a more youthful body. You will also need to wait until after you’re done breastfeeding. If you’re planning on having more children, you might consider delaying a mommy makeover until after you’re done growing your family.
