Weight before a Mommy Makeover in Melbourne, FL.
While, of course, it is always best to be at one’s ideal weight before having a Mommy Makeover, the reality is that many patients cannot get to their ideal weight and are therefore, seeking some help in that department. If you are at a stable weight and are generally healthy, you may find it helpful to have your Mommy Makeover be somewhat of a jump start to your further health and weight loss efforts. It would be best to discuss this with your board certified plastic surgeon. Best of luck!
Reach a BMI of 30 or less for reduced risk and best results.
At 5’2” and 175 pounds, your BMI, or body mass index, is 32. Generally speaking, you should achieve a BMI less than 30 before proceeding with your procedure. Not only does having a lower BMI mean you’ll likely get a better result, but it also directly affects your risk of complications during and after surgery. With that said, this is not necessarily a hard and fast rule, and you should be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon who will be able to better assess your candidacy and risk factors after examining and speaking with you. Schedule a consultation with a highly qualified plastic surgeon to explore your options and the best timeline for your mommy makeover.

Perfect weight for a mommy makeover?
This is a very common question! I always recommend that patients anticipating a mommy makeover be at their most ideal weight they can achieve. In general terms, being within 10-15 lbs of your goal weight, and certainly a BMI (Body Mass Index--a measure incorporating height and weight) of 30 or less, and preferably near 25, is most ideal. This is where there are fewer wound healing issues, fewer issues and concerns with anesthesia, and where I can give patients their BEST results. I would always recommend a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, who has experience with all of the procedures that may be involved with a mommy makeover, for a personalized and individualized plan. Best wishes for a beautiful result!
Mommy makeover timing
To achieve the best results from a mommy makeover, one should try to be close to their pre-pregnancy weight and a lower BMI (body mass index). In general, one should lose the weight prior to surgery. During consultation, you and your plastic surgeon can determine the best timing for you. Yes, good health is always important for cosmetic surgery.
