Mommy Makeovers: It’s Your Turn

Mother and DaughterBeing a mother is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. Your body has made a tiny miracle-and you couldn’t be more proud of all the hard work that you’ve put in. But after all of that hard work isn’t time to give back to yourself?
It’s no wonder you might feel that way.  With slim celebrities and mommy blogs placing pressure on new moms to be perfect so soon after baby, it might make you feel like you need to get right back into shape again.  But how soon should you wait to have a Mommy Makeover?  When’s the safest time to undergo this plastic surgery procedure?
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a series of plastic surgery procedures designed to help new moms look like their old selves again.  The Mommy Makeover procedure usually involves a tummy tuck and breast augmentation/breast lift.  The goal of the procedure is to correct aesthetic abdominal issues associated with pregnancy, as well as restore volume that may have been lost due to hormonal changes and breastfeeding.
When Can I Have a Mommy Makeover?
It’s generally recommended that new moms wait at least three to six months after stopping breastfeeding.  Dr. Gallaher will give specific time frames during your consultation. The decision to undergo a Mommy Makeover should also include making sure the support you’ll need at home is there.
For example, you won’t be able to lift any objects for the first couple of weeks after the procedure; additionally, you’ll need to be resting in a recliner-type chair for the first week.  That means you should have the support you need at home to take care of your little while getting the recovery you need.
