What Should I Know Before My Mommy Makeover?

Congratulations! You’ve made it through pregnancy and given birth!
While you enjoy spending time with your baby boy or girl and watching them grow and develop, you may find yourself frustrated with the baby weight that just doesn’t seem to go away. It’s no secret that childbearing completely transforms your body, but if you find yourself missing the thinner, more contoured body that you had pre-baby, then you’re not alone. That’s why Mommy Makeover surgery is so popular for women.  

A Mommy Makeover is not a single cosmetic procedure but is, instead, a customizable combination of different procedures that help address issues like stubborn fat and sagging skin in your belly, breasts, and lower body. As you plan your way to having that hot mom-bod, it is important to learn a little more about Mommy Makeover and what to expect with your procedure.

Am I a Candidate?

deal candidates for Mommy Makeover surgery are women who are at or near their goal weight, are non-smokers (or can abstain from smoking for a few weeks before and after surgery), and have realistic expectations about their results. Most candidates have extra, loose skin in their midsection as well as sagging, uneven, or deflated breasts.

Scheduling a consultation with Synergy Face + Body is the best way to find out if you are truly a candidate for Mommy Makeover surgery and which surgeries you can really benefit from.

What’s Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is full of possibilities; it is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Because most women experience stretched skin and abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, and unwanted fat after pregnancy, many women choose breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck. However, Mommy Makeover surgery is customizable to each patient and their individual goals.

How Can I Prepare for Surgery and Recovery?

Understanding all the ins and outs of surgery is a good start, but also prepping your body, your mind, and your house ahead of time can really aid in the whole Mommy Makeover process. Making sure that you have enough time off from work is crucial for a successful recovery. If you stress or try to do too much, it will only end in less-than-perfect results. Running errands for medications, shopping for groceries and meal prepping, and creating a safe and comfortable environment before your surgery are all beneficial to achieving a successful recovery period. And relaxing and staying calm can help make this transition easier.

When Is the Best Time to Undergo Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Mommy Makeover is a pretty intense surgery. Sometimes it’s hard to find time to devote to yourself, especially if you are a mother. Scheduling your Mommy Makeover surgery should be convenient for you and also for the people who are going to help you while you recover. Here are a couple of questions that you can ask yourself to help you choose the right time:

  • Do I want to recover in the heat or the cold?
  • Will my childcare help be available?
  • Are there any previous engagements that will conflict?
  • Will I have enough days off to take for work?
  • Am I done having kids?
