Should I Have a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing all change your physical body in dramatic ways, and while motherhood is both deeply satisfying and very personal for each woman, once you’re done having children, it can be a good time to rejuvenate your body and rediscover the person you are outside of being a parent.

Tighter Abs

Even if you work out regularly, most moms are unable to achieve the tight abs they had prior to pregnancy. The process of carrying a baby causes separation of the abdominal wall that often doesn’t snap back and persists after delivery.  Also, there is typically a pocket of stubborn belly fat that is usually resistant to diet and exercise that can be addressed during a mommy makeover.

Firmer, Reshaped Breasts

After nursing your children and experiencing the shifts in breast size that come and go with lactation, achieving your pre-pregnancy figure often requires reshaping or augmenting your breasts. As part of the mommy makeover, you can recover your pre-pregnancy, pre-nursing breast shape and youthful firmness.

Customized Approach

Every mommy makeover is different because every woman is unique. Some women take the opportunity to include a breast augmentation or have liposuction. Your unique needs can be taken into consideration when planning the mommy makeover so that you achieve the outcomes you desire.

When Should I Consider a Mommy Makeover?

You should be done having children and be at least 6 months postpartum before considering the surgery. You should also be done nursing, for at least six months. As well, you should be in good health and close to your ideal weight. It is very important that you are not a smoker, too. If you are travelling from out of town or out of state, you’ll need to plan a space for recovering for at least the first two weeks and have someone with you to provide support.

If you’re interested in considering a mommy makeover, the first step is to schedule a consultation. Dr. Yates has vast experience with the mommy makeover procedure, as this is a huge part of his practice. Many women in Utah get married at a fairly young age and are done having children when they are still in their 20s and 30s, so having a mommy makeover helps them recapture their youth.
