Having a baby is a beautiful and magical experience. However, it’s completely natural to be uncomfortable with the appearance of your body after giving birth. After women have babies, it’s common for breasts to sag, abdominal areas to carry excess skin, and buttocks to droop. And even if you improve your eating habits and workout routine, these problem areas may still remain. Unfortunately, once the tissues and skin have been compromised, there’s limited improvement with diet and exercise.

When Is The Right Time For A Mommy Makeover?
It is recommended to wait until you are officially done having children before receiving a mommy makeover procedure. It is best to wait until at least a few months after giving birth for several reasons—primarily, to ensure that you have lost all baby weight and that your tissues have settled back into their natural form. It is also helpful to wait until you are finished breastfeeding—a breast lift may cause bleeding, which can be harmful to the baby.

Mommy Makeover Combinations
Giving birth can leave the female figure with an excess of skin and fat. Body contouring procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck can serve to optimize the overall shape and contour of the body.
Pregnancy can also leave a woman with sagging breasts and stretch marks. Consequently, mommy makeovers often include a breast lift or augmentation to create a more aesthetically pleasing chest.
Augmentation or lifting of the buttocks is also useful in creating an integrated approach to reshaping the body post-pregnancy, decreasing irregularities and creating a smoother appearance.
Many other options are available to combine with the mommy makeover, such as liposuction or even vaginal rejuvenation to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state.
