For mothers who long for their youthful before pregnancy body, a mommy makeover can help them get there. Designed for mothers and mothers alone, it incorporates multiple operations, specifically to the breasts and belly, to deliver a slender, well-contoured body by addressing sagging skin and tissues.

A mommy makeover addresses many cosmetic issues mothers face after pregnancy and breastfeeding. The problems with muscle expansion, excess fat, and tissues stretching can alter a woman’s body into unimaginable contours.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amy Alderman is devoted to aesthetic excellence and the mastery of body contouring techniques. As a female surgeon, she understands the importance of body appearances and how it influences a woman’s self-esteem.

If you consider improving your post-pregnancy figure with a mommy makeover, here are some critical questions.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Many women who experience body-altering transformations from bearing children might want to consider a mommy makeover, but not all are candidates.

The best candidate for a Mommy Makeover:

  • Is a non-smoker
  • Has no plans for more children
  • Has realistic goals and expectations

Being a good candidate depends on other factors, including overall health, weight, and more.

Is a Mommy Makeover Wise If I Want More Children?

Whether or not you have more kids after the procedure is crucial in deciding if a mommy makeover is best for you. The operation is designed to target the effects of pregnancy, so having more children will most likely reverse some of Its benefits.

You can ensure your results will not be compromised by waiting to have the operation after you’re finished with having children.

A mommy makeover will not stop a woman’s ability to conceive, as this procedure does not alter a women’s reproductive system. In addition, mothers who decide to have more children will enjoy the benefits of breast implants and liposuction to improve curves while saving a tummy tuck for a time in the future.

What Procedures Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover typically includes breast surgery, tummy tuck, liposuction, and labiaplasty. Each procedure targets specific issues common to women after pregnancy.

Breast surgery can reverse volume loss, location and address oversized breasts.  Each operation is personalized to fit your needs and achieve the benefits best suited for your unique body.

A tummy tuck targets loose abdominal skin and weak muscles to resolve a flabby and sagging belly. After a tummy tuck, women find their waistline smaller and abdomen more defined.

Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat accumulations from many areas to address fat pads and pockets to deliver a shapelier silhouette.

Additionally, labiaplasty can reduce the size of both the inner and outer labia or correct asymmetrical labia.

Can I Still Breastfeed After a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover typically involves some form of breast surgery, whether it is breast augmentation, a breast lift, or a breast reduction.

Breast enhancement could affect a woman’s ability to breastfeed. However, complications with breastfeeding are rare and possibly a non-issue. Instead, it is more likely breastfeeding will affect your breast enhancement results, causing the breasts to sag or shift.

Talk with Dr. Alderman about risks regarding breastfeeding after breast surgery.
