Regain Your Pre-Pregnancy Shape With A Mommy Makeover
After having children, countless women struggle to regain their pre-baby body with diet and exercise alone. In many cases, this is not for lack of effort. It can be extremely challenging and sometimes impossible to reverse the unwanted side effects of pregnancy and childbirth – like sagging skin or deflated breasts – on your own. To help women restore a feminine figure they can feel confident about, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgical specialist Dr. Omar Ahmed is proud to offer full mommy makeover surgery at Omar Ahmed, M.D. in Pasadena, CA. Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions about the mommy makeover, including what it includes, how it works, and how soon after having children you may be eligible for surgery.
Who can get a mommy makeover?
First and foremost, it should be established that mommy makeover surgery is not reserved for mothers alone. In fact, many women who have never had children undergo mommy makeover surgery to address the unwanted consequences of extreme weight loss or the natural side effects of aging. Generally speaking, ideal candidates for mommy makeover surgery are:
- In good health
- At or near a healthy and stable weight
- Done having children
- Committed to maintaining a stable weight after mommy makeover surgery
- Have loose skin, stubborn fat, sagging breasts, and other concerns about their body contour
What does a mommy makeover include?
Mommy makeover surgery is one of the most customizable cosmetic procedures available today, with each case being tailored to meet the needs, goals, and anatomy of the patient as an individual. During your initial consultation for a mommy makeover in Pasadena, CA, Dr. Ahmed will listen to all of your concerns, examine your problem areas, discuss your available options at length, and curate a personalized mommy makeover plan just for you. Some of the most common procedures included in mommy makeover surgery are:
- Breast augmentation with implants
- Fat transfer to the breast
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
How long do I have to wait after giving birth to have a mommy makeover?
Once you have had your final child and your family is complete, you may be anxious to get back to your pre-baby shape as soon as possible. While Dr. Ahmed certainly understands this desire, it is important that patients have fully recovered from childbirth and have finished breastfeeding before undergoing a mommy makeover. On average, patients can safely and appropriately schedule a mommy makeover about 6 – 12 months after giving birth, though this can vary from patient to patient. Most importantly, the woman should be in good health and have reached a stable, “normal” weight, as losing or gaining weight after mommy makeover surgery can compromise the results of the procedure.
When mommy makeover surgery is performed at the proper time by a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, the results can be remarkably natural-looking and long-lasting, helping women feel like themselves once again.
