5 Most Important Things to Know About Mommy Makeover

We are all obsessed with celebrities and their lives to a different extent. Women especially have a fetish for celebrity figures and keep a close watch on it especially after celebrities become celebrity moms.

Their baby bump, maternity wear and how fast they get back into shape is always under the lens of paparazzi, which most of us love to read, talk and share about.

Many women are illusioned that celebrity moms return to their pre-baby shape in no time after the baby is out. 

However, it is important to know that any change in the body takes time to appear. In fact, doctors recommend and agree that sudden weight changes are not healthy and thus not good for your body. 

One must give the body sufficient time to lose or gain weight so as not to affect the normal functioning of the body.

Physiological Changes During Pregnancy


  • During pregnancy, the body produces hormones and undergoes several changes to allow for the birth and growth of the baby. 
  • The breasts engorge to help provide milk, the uterus wall, and abdomen stretch to accommodate the growing fetus, fat gets deposited around the hips and buttocks to act as the shock absorber for baby’s head.
  • The body works to return to its normal self after these changes are no longer required- skin starts shrinking but the degree varies and may not always be able to return to its original self.
  •   In spite of regular diet and exercise, many women find it extremely difficult to lose the extra fat they have accumulated. The skin especially around tummy has now become loose and gives an overhang with loose abdominal muscles. Breasts usually sag and lose volume even after you return to your pre-baby weight.

Most women find the answer to these issues in Mommy Makeover Surgery.

Mommy makeover is a set of plastic procedures to restore the body back to pre-pregnancy shape by removing extra fat and loose skin.

The most commonly performed procedures during mommy makeover are Tummy tuck, Liposuction of abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, hips or arms, Breast reduction / Breast lift or Breast augmentation.

Some women even combine arm lift, buttock lift and facial rejuvenation procedures for complete rejuvenation to face and body.

However, there are few important points women should consider before they undergo mommy makeover surgery:

  • Mommy makeover is body contouring and not weight loss surgery

It should be well understood that mommy makeover is a body contouring procedure and not the procedure for weight loss. Women who have gained a lot of weight and BMI more than 35 should plan for weight loss surgery and not plastic surgery.

  •  You should be close to your ideal weight for best results

Plastic surgeons all over the world emphasize that you get best results from body contouring plastic surgery if you are closer to your ideal weight.  

There are more chances of complications when you are overweight; besides the results being less than the best.

  • You should wait till you have finished childbearing

Not that plastic surgery would interfere in anyway with making babies or affect your fertility, pregnancy after you mommy makeover would adversely affect the results.

You may have loose abdominal muscles, fat deposits, and sagging breasts all over again. So, instead of running the risks of a redo plastic surgery, it is best to finish baby making and then opt for mommy makeover for long-lasting results.

  • You should have stopped breastfeeding

Most women wish to jump to get the surgery done and get back in shape at the earliest after their delivery. It is, however, important to note that it is not advisable to have the surgery while you are still breastfeeding.

  •           You are off smoking


Delayed healing and higher chances of complications are two major problems in patients who smoke immediately before or after the surgery.  But the good news is that if you stop smoking 4-6 weeks before and after the surgery, the chances of complications go down.

So, if you are planning to undergo mommy makeover surgery, flush the cigarettes off and prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally for this major surgery.

Best Time For Mommy Makeover 


As mentioned above, the best time for the mommy makeover is when you are close to your ideal body weight, are done with childbearing, have weaned your baby, are ready to stop smoking, you can begin to think of undergoing mommy makeover surgery. 

Another important thing is to note that you may not be able to pay much attention to your child after the surgery. It is best to pay full attention to your healing and well-being, so plan your surgery at the time when you think that your baby can be fine without you for 2-3 weeks.

Our surgeons also suggest that you should wait for at least a year after your delivery before you plan for your mommy makeover plastic surgery.
