Mommy Makeover After Last Child
While it is too soon for an evaluation right now, it is fine to start planning ahead. You can even make an appointment in the future, if it helps you to work toward that goal!
Are you breastfeeding? I recommend waiting at least 3 months after your milk has dried up completely before undergoing any breast surgery.
You will want to wait for your hormone levels to even out and for the skin to start to tighten back up before considering surgery. Everyone's body is different on this timeline. For the best results, it is best to be within about 5 lbs of your goal weight before undergoing surgery as well.
When to Schedule a Mommy Makeover
It's suggested to wait at least 6 months after pregnancy to undergo a Mommy Makeover. Additionally, your weight should also be stable for at least 6 months.
#Combining these procedures decreases anesthetics, costs, and recovery time. Most importantly, your procedures should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
All surgical procedures carry some degree of #risk. Always discuss your issues and concerns with the Plastic Surgeon during and following your consultation. Information that you read online may not apply to your personal situation.
It is imperative you select a plastic surgeon who is #board-certified and has a great deal of experience with the procedures included with a Mommy Makeover. . Aside from checking board-certification, it is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision. Also, such #combined operations are often performed with our Gynecology colleagues. Tubal ligation is a common post pregnancy procedure which is done at the time of many of the surgeries included with Mommy Makeovers. Therefore, if you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your doctor. Combining these procedures decreases anesthetics, costs, and recovery time.

Mommy Makeover Ideal Time
Ideally when you make an appointment to see a plastic surgeon following delivery of a child, you have returned to close to your pre-pregnancy body weight and tone. It may take up to six months or longer for your body to regain some tone and to lose extra pounds. Additionally, your breasts will be engorged from pregnancy and remain so if you are breast feeding. Waiting 6 months following termination of breast feeding will allow your breasts to return to a pre-pregnancy state and allow your plastic surgeon to safely and accurately plan an optimal result.
Mommy makeover timing
For the mommy makeover, you want to be at least 6 months out from either the date of your delivery, or when you stopped breast feeding, whichever is later, to have the surgery.
You could make your appointment a month or so prior to that time, if desired.
All the best,
