What is a mommy makeover exactly? It is a combination of procedures to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state. A mommy makeover is different for everyone and tailored to each patient. A plastic surgeon can advise you on the procedure combination that's best for you based on your concerns and goals.
However, to get the best results and the biggest bang for your money and time, it is best to NOT get the procedure unless you do the 3 things below...
Are done having children
Mommy Makeovers are best performed after you are done having children. As stated above, Mommy Makeovers help to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. The last thing you want to do is spend a bunch of time and money on your surgery just to have another child and reverse the results.
Will keep up with the results
If you have decided you're definitely done having children, then the other thing to worry about is keeping up with your results. We've had a few patients come in time and time again to have more liposuction because they continued the same unhealthy habits they had before the procedure. Plastic surgery isn't the golden answer. Surgery can help you achieve goals you can't through exercise and diet alone, however, those two things are imperative in keeping up with the results afterwards.
Follow post-op instructionsIn order to maximize the results from your procedure it is extremely important to follow your post-op instructions. The instructions we give you are given to you for a reason. We have seen people not follow the instructions and end up not being pleased with the results. The issues could have been avoided if the post-op care was followed as directed. The instructions are given to give you the best results possible!
The first and most important step is to find a board-certified plastic surgeon. Together the two of you can do an evaluation and go over your goals, wants and needs. The surgeon can then advise which procedures will best reach your desired look. At Ambay Plastic Surgery, Dr. Raj Ambay, specializes in Mommy Makeovers.
