When soon can I have a Mommy Makeover after having kids?

The best time to plan cosmetic body and breast contouring procedures is when you are at a stable weight, when you can take the time to recover and when you have help to care for your little ones. Planning for your recovery and following Dr. Alexander’s advice is how to get the best results from your surgery.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of cosmetic surgeries of the breast and body. The term comes from recognizing that most women’s bodies go through a lot of changes during pregnancy. Breasts get larger and then lose volume or become loose and stretched out. The abdomen, or tummy area, has skin that gets loose and stretched out and the lower and upper abdominal muscles can become loose too. Also, women often develop stubborn areas of fatty tissue in the abdomen and in the flank areas (back of the waist).a child kissing a pregnant woman's belly

How do I know which procedures are best for me?

Dr. Alexander makes a personalized recommendation for you based on your goals, the changes you experienced during your pregnancies and your anatomy. His recommendations take into consideration your health and which procedures will give you the best surgery results. Breast recommendations are typically breast augmentation with silicone “gummy bear” breast implants or breast implant exchange surgery if women had breast implants before having children. Breast lift surgery lifts the breasts and nipples to a more youthful position can be done alone or combined with breast implants. Breast reduction surgery is also a popular procedure that reduces the breast size and lifts the breasts to a more youthful position. Surgery recommendations for the body often include a tummy tuck and liposuction to the flanks, thighs and back. The combination of breast and body procedures is individualized to take into account each woman’s goals and needs.

What is the benefit of having multiple procedures during my surgery?

For most women, having more than one procedure during their Mommy Makeover surgery is healthy and safe. Most of our patients find the benefit of combining procedures is to have one recovery while achieving the goal of returning their bodies back to their pre-baby state. Often, the down-time is the hard for moms to coordinate and having one recovery can make their breast and body contouring goals more achievable.
