A common question asked by women considering a mommy makeover is when they should have the procedure. The answer is that each woman should choose the timing of her procedure to best fit her unique needs.
There are general considerations that each woman will want to take into account when making the decision about when to undergo a mommy makeover.
Allowing Yourself Time to Recover
Following the birth of your child, your body will need time to recover from the nine months of transformation that you underwent to carry your child. Over the next several months, your abdomen and breasts will begin to contract, to varying degrees, back toward your pre-pregnancy state.
If you are breastfeeding, your breasts will remain enlarged, and you will want to wait until your child is weaned before considering surgery. It is important to allow your body time to naturally recover before undergoing surgery.
Considering Future Family Planning
In planning the timing of your mommy makeover, you should consider your future family plans. Becoming pregnant again after your procedure will potentially undo the results achieved through a mommy makeover. For the best, long-lasting results, wait until your family is complete.
