Timing of mommy makeover surgery after pregnancy?
Generally speaking, the “ideal” patient for tummy tuck surgery is one who has completed pregnancies, is psycho socially/emotionally/financially stable, has an excellent social support system surrounding him/her, is capable of arranging enough recovery time, does not smoke and who has reached a long-term stable weight. For most patients in your situation I also use liposuction surgery as a contouring tool, most often used in the flank areas, mid-epigastric areas and pubic areas. I hope this, and the attached link, helps.

You will get a variety of answers about how long to wait after childbirth before having a mommy makeover. “Mommy makeovers” include many different combinations and mean different things to different patients, including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and/or lift, and liposuction of selective areas.. There are numerous reasons to wait a minimum of 6 months after delivery in order to get the best cosmetic result
with the lowest risk of complications: · Your body, including your abdomen is still changing. · You may have not lost all of your pregnancy weight. · You cannot lift the baby postoperatively for weeks after a “mommy makeover”. The number of weeks depending on the extent of the procedures performed. · You will need additional support at home to take of the baby as well as you. I would suggest that you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
