If you have given birth in the past, you may not be too excited about some of the changes pregnancy has made to your physique. Whether it’s large, pendulous breasts, a flabby backside or loose, flapping skin left on your core, pregnancy isn’t exactly kind to all women. A Mommy Makeover is a combination procedure designed to help erase these signs of pregnancy and give you back your pre-baby figure. If you are curious about this procedure and are wondering if you would be a good candidate, there are several hallmarks shared by nearly all good surgical candidates. Of course, each of us is an individual, and your case will need to be decided by you and our surgeon. These hallmarks are a simple overview of traits and habits shared by ideal candidates.
You Do Not Plan to Become Pregnant Again
While a Mommy Makeover has no effect on your ability to carry a healthy child to full term, the work can be largely undone by another pregnancy. If your Mommy Makeover includes work to your breasts, you may also be unable to breastfeed in the future. While “surprise” babies do happen, it’s advisable to look into sterilization or long-lasting birth control methods before having your Mommy Makeover.
You Don’t Smoke
Smoking cigarettes has a deleterious effect on your body’s ability to heal. Smokers have higher incidences of post-surgical complications than their non-smoking counterparts. While the smoking of cannabis has become more mainstream, it can still cause complications. If you smoke anything, you should stop a set amount of time before your surgery and remain a non-smoker until you have healed entirely.
You Have a Good Support System
A Mommy Makeover is like any other surgery; it requires plenty of rest and relaxation afterwards for recovery. While you can receive your Mommy Makeover as soon as you have healed completely from giving birth, it’s smart to consider your support system. If you are a single parent or it’s just you and your partner doing the parenting, you should make sure you have help available after your procedure while you are healing.
A Mommy Makeover can give you back your pre-pregnancy body and the confidence that went with it.
