Mommy makeovers are beneficial for helping women enhance their confidence. But how soon can you get a mommy makeover after your pregnancy? Keep reading to find out.
When Can You Get a Mommy Makeover After Pregnancy?
Do You Plan To Have More Children?
The exact amount of time will differ for each person. First, it’s important to ask yourself whether you plan to have more children. Becoming pregnant after your mommy makeover can change your results and may require another procedure to correct.
Are You Breastfeeding?
Another factor to consider is whether you are breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can cause your breasts to continue to change as your body produces milk. Before having any breast procedures, it’s important to completely wean your baby off of breast milk.
Is Your Weight Stabilized?
Your body will also continue to change as your hormones return to normal following your pregnancy. As your body adjusts and returns to homeostasis, you may notice your changes to your body such as weight fluctuations and differences in the the texture and elasticity of your skin. It also takes time for your abdomen to stabilize as it may still be reshaping itself. Therefore, getting a tummy tuck or liposuction would be premature before your weight and hormones have stabilized.
All of these factors considered if you do not plan to have more children, then Dr. Trussler would feel the most comfortable waiting until at least one year after childbirth. By this time, a majority of hormones in the body will have stabilized.
