5 Signs You’re Ready for a Mommy Makeover

If you’re already doing your mommy makeover research, you might know that it’s one of the most common cosmetic procedures for women who are having trouble getting their pre-baby bodies back. A mommy makeover combines multiple plastic surgeries, like a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift or augmentation, to help women regain self-confidence and achieve their fitness goals that might be virtually impossible through diet and exercise alone.

Since finding the best time for a mommy makeover is a frequently asked question about this procedure, here are five signs that could mean you’re ready.

1. Your Body Is Ready

Although you might be eager to address loose skin on your belly, stubborn pockets of fat or breast ptosis, remember that your body will need a chance to recuperate after childbirth and breastfeeding. Because of this, you should wait at least six months after delivering your baby to have a mommy makeover. For some women, though, it could take up to a year before they’re fully ready. Go at your own pace, and listen to your body.

2. You Have Some Free Time

Plan your mommy makeover to coincide with a slow time of year for you to ensure your body will have adequate rest and recovery time.

One of the biggest benefits of wrapping up several procedures into one during a mommy makeover is that you’ll only need one recovery time, rather than multiple for each separate procedure. However, you will still need to plan to take 1 to 2 weeks off of work, and another few weeks away from strenuous activities, including lifting and carrying your kids.

3. You’re Finished Having Kids

The ideal time to start planning your mommy makeover is once you’ve completed your family. Having additional children after plastic surgery could mean that you’ll need a revision procedure much sooner to get those same results back.

Of course, if plans change down the road, it’s still possible to have another child after your mommy makeover, but it’s best to try to be as certain as possible that you’re finished having kids before scheduling your procedure.

4. It’s Winter

Truth be told, there’s no reason why you can’t have a mommy makeover any time of the year. That said, the colder winter months do have their advantages. For one, many people have extra time off work this time of year, which might make it easier to plan for some down time.

Secondly, you won’t be tempted to lounge out in the sun or take a dip in the pool during the winter, so your recovery might be a little easier. Plus, comfy oversized sweatshirts and sweatpants that you might wear in the winter anyway are perfect attire for your mommy makeover recovery.

5. You’ve Reached a Stable Weight

It’s normal for your weight to fluctuate post-pregnancy, so you’ll want to wait until you’ve come as close to reaching your target weight and are able to maintain that same weight before getting a mommy makeover. You’ll likely see much better results in the long run that way.
