Mommy Makeover: When is the right time to have a Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery?

We are all obsessed with celebrities and their lives to different extent. Women specially 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 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. During pregnancy, the body produces hormones and undergo 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 foetus, fat gets deposited around the hips and buttocks to act as 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 lose and gives and overhang with lose abdominal muscles. Breasts usually sag and lose volume even after you return to your pre baby weight.

Most women find the answer to this entire in mommy makeover surgery. Mommy makeover is a set of plastic procedures to restore the lady’s body back to pre pregnancy shape by removing extra fat and lose skin.  The most commonly performed procedures during mommy makeover are Tummy tuck, Liposuction, Breast reduction / Breast lift or Breast augmentation.

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 lot of weight and BMI more than 32 should plan for weight loss surgery and not plastic surgery.


  •  You should be close to your ideal weight for best result
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.  Excess weight would not only let your surgeon work with limitations, there are more chances of complications besides the results being less than the best.

  • You should wait till you have finished child bearing
Not that plastic surgery would interfere in anyways 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 re do plastic surgery, it is best to finish baby making and then opt for mommy makeover for long lasting results.

  • You should have stopped breast feeding
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 breast feeding.


We must remember that each woman recovers from pregnancy at different rates and we just need to enjoy the journey to make the whole process worthwhile.  When you think that your baby can be fine without you for 2-3 weeks that you should think about a makeover.  Our surgeons suggest that you should wait for a year at least after your delivery before you plan for your mommy makeover plastic surgery.
