Welcoming a new child into the world is a rewarding and exciting feeling, but it can also leave you missing your pre-baby body. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause a number of changes to your figure: stretched abdominal muscles, flattened breasts, lax skin, and unwanted pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
Fortunately, a mommy makeover can address these common post-pregnancy concerns with a range of customizable procedures, such as:
What qualities make a good mommy makeover candidate? You may be ready for a mommy makeover if:
- You are in good overall health
- You are at or near your target body weight
- You do not smoke (or are willing to quit prior to your surgery and throughout recovery)
- You have fully weaned your child
- You struggle with stretched or damaged abdominal muscles
- You have visible C-section scars
- Your breasts are loose, deflated, or asymmetrical
- You have enlarged areolas
It will also be important to discuss your future pregnancy plans with Dr. Cusick during your initial consultation. Although a mommy makeover will not affect your ability to have more children down the road, a future pregnancy and childbirth could have a negative impact on your mommy makeover results.
